As it turns out, Porsha was not supposed to announce the engagement or the “shower.” However, sources VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY close to Porsha have now told PEOPLE about the engagement and the bizarre “shower.” Now it all makes sense.
“Dennis rented out a venue and took Porsha via helicopter there,” her rep tells PEOPLE exclusively, adding that there were “candles and rose petals everywhere.”
The singer Lil’ Mo surprised Williams by singing her favorite song, “4 Ever.” Then, the couple threw a “prayer party” for their baby on the way.
The tutus and tiara’s shower was not an actual shower, and was actually a prayer party where all of her friends and family convened to pray for the health of the baby. I really hope this was not due to any particular news, but simply because of Porsha’s history with a miscarriage and just general prayers for a healthy baby girl. It is interesting, at least to me that the engagement photo on PEOPLE and the dress Porsha wears in the prayer group photos on social media are not the same. At any rate, she is officially engaged, and probably was at the time she announced her pregnancy on People and the shower was actually a prayer party. Mystery solved.
Less that two weeks ago, Porsha Williams announced she was pregnant. On that same day I pointed out that she was wearing an engagement ring and wondered why she was not announcing her engagement as well.
Today is deja vu.
We woke up this morning to two new photos of Porsha. In the above picture in the red dress she is clearly saying, “LOOK AT MY RING!” Even though the caption is “Feed off good energy or bad energy will feed off you!” Well, that’s an odd quote for announcing and engagement. Especially since she has already flashed the ring at us once. The tabloids seem to be taking this as some sort of official announcement. To be clear, I have yet to see an official announcement. I’ve just seen the same photos that the tabloids are providing as proof that she is engaged.
While I believe that Porsha could well be engaged, I feel like she would be screaming from the mountaintops that “He put a ring on it!” if she were engaged. So either two things are happening. Bravo has told her she can’t talk about the engagement because it was filmed, or she is using the “everyone already things we are engaged so you might as well propose strategy with Dennis. Time will tell but there are only a couple of weeks left of RHOA filming so I don’t see how they can expect this to be a secret for the next several months.
Also last night, Porsha posted a photo of her a Tutus and Tiaras baby shower. That photo had the caption, “We fix each other’s crowns and no one ever knows !! ? #RealFriends.” That one seemed to be implying that she had a shower with her real friends and not the fake RHOA friends for the show. This is really the lead story.
She posted yet another photo from the baby shower where there was a step and repeat of sorts that read “Praying for baby McKinley.” Again, this is a weird thing to have at a baby shower. I get that Porsha is really worried about having another miscarriage, but it seems a bit depressing to have a display at a baby shower where you are focusing on hoping that the baby makes it. In fact, it seems a bit early for a baby shower at all if there is such a risk to the baby that such as display is necessary.
So it seems that the tabloids have missed the actual headline. What Porsha DEFINITELY confirmed in these photos is that she is having a girl! Congrats on the baby, girl Porsha. And on the engagement if this is indeed somehow your official announcement of both! You look amazing and happy and that’s all that counts.
