Filming ‘RHOA,’ Falynn Guobadia noticed a change

Falynn was featured on RHOA Season 13 and was introduced to viewers as a “friend of” Williams. Although her time on the show was short-lived, she came back into the picture after the show wrapped. Following Williams announcing she had found love again, Falynn was once again a topic of discussion. Fans of the show have been wanting to get her side of the story and Falynn recently opened up about when she noticed things change between her and Simon.

“Where I noticed it started changing, was after we started filming the show,” Falynn said in an interview with Adam Newell. “I don’t think it was the show’s fault. We weren’t even on there like that for the show to be the ruin of our marriage. But I don’t know, it seems like other things were going on that I didn’t necessarily know about.”

It’s worth nothing that it was Simon that convinced Falynn to join the show by telling her that it was good for her spiritual well-being. Despite their marriage not working out in the end, Falynn doesn’t resent joining the show because of her marital vows in making a happy marriage.

Falynn Guobadia doesn’t blame Porsha Williams

Many RHOA fans online thought that Falynn would lash out at Williams during her interview. However, Falynn doesn’t blame her former co-star for her marriage ending in a divorce.

“No, no one has that power over my life, my husband’s life and our marriage,” she said. “However, Simon and I were the ones who are married to one another, we’re the ones who created a family together and built a life with one another. I blame the both of us. He’s to blame, I am to blame and that is all. Whatever came after that. I’m not saying it was right. I’m not saying it was wrong. But no. No one has that power besides Simon and I.”

Falynn found out that Williams and her ex-husband were engaged just like everyone else — from social media. At first, she was in disbelief but the news spread like wild fire and she found out Simon was with Williams.

Nene Leakes Comments on Porsha Williams Getting Engaged to ‘RHOA’ Co-Star’s Ex: ‘It Looks Bad’

What did Porsha Williams say about the drama?

On the day that Williams announced she was happy and in love with Simon, she knew she would be receiving backlash. The Bravo’s Chat Room co-host directed part of her message to the criticism and gave a timeline of her romance with her fiancé.

“For all of you that need facts, I get the optics but Simon filed for divorce from a previous marriage in January,” Williams posted on Instagram. “I had nothing to do with their divorce filing. That’s between the two of them,” Williams explained. “Falynn and I are not friends, and Simon’s divorce has been settled. Our relationship is a positive, loving step forward in everybody’s lives.”
