The Real Housewives of Atlanta fans are patiently waiting for Porsha Williams’ new spinoff series. Months ago, multiple media outlets reported that Williams’ show was greenlit and would feature more about her family and activism.
But amid news of her buzzworthy engagement to her former co-star Falynn Pina’s now ex-husband Simon Guobadia, many grew excited to see Williams’ and Guobadia’s relationship play out on camera. With rumors that the longtime ATL starlet may not return for the upcoming 14th season, viewers will definitely be tuned in.
Now, a producer on the show is giving fans a teaser on what to expect. “I don’t know if you guys are ready for this show,” James Brangert said during an Aug. 22 appearance on Bravo’s Chat Room. “But I think, you know, we stepped in when Porsha was at a crossroads in her life. I think it was a pivotal moment before her and her family.”
Williams’ family aren’t shy about telling it like it is either. Her mother Diane and sister Lauren, who will be featured on the spinoff, have also been staples and fan favorites on RHOA. “And, you know, a lot of families, they sweep things under the rug, and they don’t want to address issues that are in front of them,” Brangert added. “And Porsha and her family hit all the uncomfortable topics head-on, and they did it directly.”
This causes for some tense moments, especially on a family trip. “And as much as the trip was supposed to be zen, it was, uh, not,” he warns. “But you’ll definitely want to stay tuned for that one.”
Porsha adds that her family will tackle “the real s–t.” Adding, “It was like some stuff that you go through in your own family. Like, if you can imagine someone you haven’t spoke to or things you haven’t said, and you actually say them and deal with all that emotion, that’s pretty much what that is.”
The eight-episode series is expected to begin airing this Fall.
