‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’: Porsha Williams and Dennis Mckinley are Back Together
Who can keep up with the relationship statuses of any of the women in the Real Housewives franchise? One day, they are happily dating someone, the next, they are separated and then the next week, they are engaged. It’s a constant rollercoaster.
One group of women who seem to always be having relationship woes are the ladies of Atlanta. Whereas in previous seasons, the majority of the women were married, now most of the Atlanta housewives are divorced.
Porsha Williams has had a tough journey when it comes to love. When we first met her, she was married to former football player Kordell Stewart. In her time as a housewife, she has gotten divorced, been in and out of a few relationships, and gotten engaged.
Unfortunately, she and her fiance Dennis McKinley called off their engagement shortly after Williams gave birth to their first child.
Why did they call off the engagement?
McKinley and Williams began dating last year. Once Williams announced her pregnancy, McKinley asked her to be his wife. The proposal was shown on the season finale of The Real Housewives of Atlanta.
Everything seemed good until Williams unexpectedly unfollowed McKinley on Instagram in May of this year. Around that time, rumors started spreading that McKinley was cheating on his wife-to-be with WAGS Atlanta star Sincerely Ward.
McKinley released a statement regarding the rumors.
“These false and slanderous allegations against me are made solely to damage my reputation, jeopardize my ongoing businesses, and negatively impact my family,” he said at the time. “Attempts to ignore this slander have only empowered [blogger Tasha K.] to create more false accusations.”
Though they claimed the cheating allegations were false, the couple did split and Williams began posting several cryptic messages on her Instagram.
“Not gonna worry tonight,” one picture read. “God had it LAST time. God has it THIS time.”
Her fans were quick to come to her rescue each time she posted something seemingly connected to relationship issues.
“Get your man and keep him,” one fan commented on the photo. “Be a family for babygirl PJ, she needs him and you. You can do this! Sending ❤️ and prayers. This is what marriage is WORK and pushing through.”
“I hope the family is ok and Dennis and you are ok. Whatever it is, this too shall pass!!” another person said. “Rumors are just that.”
After being relatively quiet about their relationship, Williams recently revealed on Dish Nation that she was back with her fiance.
Her cohost, Gary With Da Tea, noticed that Williams was wearing her engagement ring again and asked her what was going on.
“We’re taking it one day at a time,” she told him.”We working on it.”
As for the wedding, it’s on hold for now.
“They’re not wedding planning or anything like that right now, just taking it slow and one day at a time,” a source told HollywoodLife.
“Dennis and Porsha have always been speaking and doing the best to co-parent when it comes to PJ,” the source said. “It’s very, very recent and new again, but Porsha seems very happy.”
