Back in early August, rumors began to circulate online that Porsha Williams is pregnant. The leak was supposed to have come from production sources. My Bravo sources told me at the time that Porsha had not told anyone she was pregnant and they had no reason to believe she was. A few days later at party thrown by Kandi for Todd’s 45th Porsha was said to have gotten in a physical altercation with another guest. The party was not filmed for RHOA but it was significant that Porsha was invited as it signaled that Kandi had once again forgiven Porsha for bad behavior from the previous season. Her turned up behavior seemed to indicated that she was not in fact pregnant.
As the rumors persisted, I checked with my Bravo source who said that Porsha has not told them she was pregnant. Nothing about Porsha being pregnant was mentioned on the recent cast trip to Tokyo as far as my sources know. The big news in Tokyo was about Tanya Sam. My Bravo source said as recently as a few days ago that no one at Bravo had been told. Remember, Bravo and the production company are two different levels of production. There was no observation made about whether or not she was drinking on the trip. If you have stock in Hennessy you might see a dip in your stock portfolio.
Today, when I opened up my laptop my source was updating me on the situation. According to the source they were allegedly first told she was six weeks pregnant, and later in the same day that she was eleven weeks pregnant. There seems to be some confusion surrounding the situation. Porsha kept posting hints on Instagram, but based on the information I had, I thought she was just seeking attention. Bravo found out yesterday ahead of the she gave an interview to People Magazine, just in time for the Friday print issue deadline.
Porsha told People that she was going for her first ultrasound on the same day of the People interview. Porsha had a miscarriage six years ago and had surgery for fibroids a couple years ago. The entire first half of the baby announcement is about her miscarriage and her fear of another miscarriage. Is that normal? Not the fear, of course that is normal, but it seemed like an odd lead off to a baby announcement to me.
Porsha went public about boyfriend Dennis McKinley in June. By the first week of July there were photos of the couple in a jewelry store in New York city where the paparazzi just happened to be on hand to ask about engagement rings.
Three weeks later at the end of July, at Dennis’ 37th birthday party, Porsha gave Dennis the good news. Dennis has since been coming up with baby names. He would like Napoleon for a boy. Porsha isn’t having that. And for his girl name he has selected Porsha Junior. He wan’t to call her PJ. Porsha seems to like this.
As I mentioned recently, Bravo is thrilled with all of the “life-changing drama” that happened in Tokyo. Shamea (who isn’t expected to be on this season much) also pregnant? Eva just had a baby? It’s going to be baby central. Also the RHOA trailer was ready to roll and now Bravo is trying to decide whether are not to edit this new information in. It sounds like it will probably have to wait until the midseason trailer.
The reason this post is taking so long is I am talking with my source who is “trying to put things together” after so many dramatic announcements for the RHOA over the past few days (to production).
While I am happy for Porsha and wish her all the happiness with Dennis and the pregnancy, there seems to be a lot of questions regarding this entire situation. She seems quite pregnant in her photos on People. That looks like more than eleven weeks to me. My source and I are quite confused about this entire situation. However, we’re gearing up to welcome Porsha Junior (will Junior be her middle name?) or baby Napoleon in Spring 2019 around the same time Sheree’s joggers come out! YAY!
In other RHOA news, the trailer will be out very, very soon and Shamari is said to be “adding the spice” in it. Tanya Sam still has not signed her latest contract offer…
There is a lot going on with RHOA production today. People seem a bit rattled. I don’t even know what it is all about yet. Story developing…
UPDATE: My source says that she denied being pregnant to Bravo when the rumors began because she was (and still is) super worried about having another miscarriage and didn’t want that on the show (again) if it happened. Information is still trickling in.
