Porsha Williams, reality television star from the ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ raised some eyebrows with the shocking news about her engagement to Simon Guobadia. A man that was introduced on the show as the husband to Porsha’s friend Falynn.
Boldly enough, Porsha stamped her relationship with the businessman via Instagram on Monday through her verified account.
“Our relationship began a month ago — yes we are crazy in love. I know it’s fast but we are living life each day to its fullest,” the caption on a photo of the new couple read. “I choose happiness every morning and every night. Tuning out all negative energy and only focused on positive wishes. He makes me so happy and to me, that is what matters most.”
The entire situation is coming off pretty messy considering that Guobadia and his wife Falynn was introduced on the ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ with Falynn listed as Williams “friend” during the first scene.
According to CNN, the Guobadias announced that they were splitting back in April.
On Mother’s Day Williams posted a photo of her with Guobadia and the father of her toddler daughter Pilar Jhena, her former fiancé Dennis McKinley, in which she appeared to be wearing an engagement ring.
“Simon and Dennis are committed to being respectful and supportive of my happiness in this situation, as well as being the best co-parents they can be to baby PJ,” Williams wrote in the caption announcing her relationship with Guobadia. “Two black men stepping up and being amazing people — let’s praise them!!!!”
Guobadia confirmed their engagement via Instagram as well. “Getting married again was never a question in my mind, but when. Did not expect to be blessed with a mate so soon,” he wrote.
“We have done the individual work to sustain a healthy relationship, and I stand next to her, proud that we found each other,” Guobadia added. “What we have is what we wish every single one of you out there — happiness. So when I asked … she said yes.”
Part of the Guobadias storyline on “Housweives” focused on his wealth and the age difference between the couple. He is 56 and she is 31.
In her posting Williams wrote, “For all of you that need facts, I get the optics but Simon filed for divorce from a previous marriage in January. I had nothing to do with their divorce filing. That’s between the two of them.”
“Falynn and I are not friends, and Simon’s divorce has been settled,” she wrote. “Our relationship is a positive, loving step forward in everybody’s lives.”
It is still unclear if the Guobadia’s are officially divorced yet, and still no comments from Falynn on the situation at hand.
