I have always wanted to be a performer, but I have also always dealt with fear. One time I was in church and it was my turn to sing the lead. There were three lead parts, and I was supposed to take the third. By the time my part came up I got so nervous and scared that I just FAINTED! It was so embarrassing, everyone ran up to me and thought it was the Holy Ghost (they started speaking in tongues) when actually I had just crumbled under pressure. After that I decided I would believe in God and the gift he had given me. I told myself fear was not of God and I shouldn't give into it. Thank the heavens I was finally healed and am now free of fear when I sing. Now I still get nervous, but I just try to put my heart and soul into my songs and hope that people hear more of my soul when I sing.
At Kandi's audition I tried not to think about it too much. I knew I had naysayers, but I also knew Kandi believed in me, which was very encouraging! I have to say I thank the haters that motivate me and push me to be my best.
I also wanted to let you know that currently I've finished a single that means a lot to me. The single is called "Flatline" with producer Chris "Traxx" Rogers. This song speaks from my heart and tells the story of any person who has ever had their heart broken or had loved someone and was let down. I can't wait for you all to get a listen... When I get emotional I lean on music to help me get through hard times and I use music to express when I'm in a good place. I'll be releasing the single "Flatline" in two weeks.
awesome you keep it moving lady, it's so unfortunate that your ex all of a sudden has all this negative mess to say about you but I think he is coming up with crap because you are moving on and doing what you want to do, being who you want to be, it sounds like jealousy to me I hope you don't get much fall out from his sudden stories, I don't believe a word he says, oh and peter really needs to mind his own business
Congratulations on your new endeavors. You seem to be growing up and showing us more of the real you. The only thing I didn't like about this past episode is when you were jumping around like a teenager. Other than that, you got it.
I don’t know why people (Peter, Nene) keep bringing back ex-husbands or ex-boyfriends to the show. I did not like when they did that to Kenya and I don’t like they are doing the same to Porsha.
It is a real housewives show. Men are having more relevance than the women. Please.
Girl this show needs the lightness you bring with your zany personality. Of course you get facts wrong on occasion, who doesn't?
Bravo, no more MEAN girls.
Porsha, I see that you look like a grown woman, but you act like a child, how old are you anyway, or maybe you are putting on an act for the camera? I don't know why you over stated how Marlo confronted Nene, I believe you used the word viciously or something like that. Granted Marlo was overly dramatic about not being invited to join Nene's team but she wanted to know why, there didn't have to be a fight, it could have been avoided if Nene didn't start with all her hatred. I guess you'll have your turn at being the center of trouble most likely if you stay on the show and don't turn out to be some huge singing STAR. ROTFLMAO. You have a pleasant enough voice but you're not that good. You wouldn't make it very far on American Idol or The Voice. Other than Kandi I don't see any of you "ladies" on RHW of Atlanta with a grain of redeemable qualities. You're all shallow and full of yourselves when the only star on the show is Kandi and she remains humble, which makes her very attractive, believable and REAL.
Marsha, Marsha, Marsha..ie Porsha.....child, please please please believe the only reason you got that role was because one, Khandi knew you needed the coins and something to do with your pathetic life and two, she needed a housewife name to help with the pull on tickets...cause nobody else bid for a role. Yeah you can sang, but com'on, your voice ain't that great, nor is your acting. Please please return to college, get a good solid education on something and get out here after the gig is up and get a real job!!
I have always liked you. You are a breath of fresh air (in my opinion). The paragraph about your singing the lead part, fainting and getting the holy ghost had me rolling with laughter. You are like a gold fish swimming in the shark tank of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. The sharks are all ugly with big mouths that are constantly open and you are small and pretty just swimming around here and there and just nowhere with an open mouth too. The difference is, your mouth is not open to eat or bite someone it is just "OPEN."
I do sincerely wish you all the best in your future endeavors.
Nene, What brand is the gorgeous caftan that you wear wearing in your kitchen with Greg on this weeks episode ?
Porsha, Loved your Leather camel back sofa with nailheads that you and Nene sat on, what manufacturer or brand name is it?
Two blogs all year?! and when you do blog its promotional!? get out of here!! Your not forthcoming enough to be on this show!! To be on this show your supposed to have OPINIONS!!!
She has a very good voice. Needs a little training and a lot more self-confidence and Porsha will be fine in this play.
You have a beautiful voice. Keep doing what you need to, in order to move past your marriage to an insecure man who did what he could to keep you down. Keep sharing your gift of singing. God bless.
Porsha, you ever heard the saying " you must not have a mirror or a friend because one of them would've told you the truth?" well this is purplediva/chachame known for keeping it all the way 100. Baby you cannot sing. You really should consider going to college or picking up some classes to really elevate your mind and knowledge of life and the world you live in. I don't know how your acting is, but your singing, omg! no, and the fact that you thought somebody was driving the train on the underground railroad, no. If you want the next man to come along and respect you as a grown woman, you need to get some knowledge about life, history, ect... watch the world news sometime, cnn, go to your local college or university and take some history courses, economic courses, honey please, as a friend don't be the sterotypical barbie, all beauty and no brains. Said with much love, really.
I remember when you actually had to know music to get anywhere in the music business. Now people that sound just like everyone else does in a school choir can get a record deal without knowing one thing about being a musician. Mediocrity is the norm. It's too bad - there are so many deserving singers in the world that will never have the chance because an ex wife of a football player thinks she's special. Before anyone says it, I can out-sing this girl on my worst day.
Porsha, please stop with the all over the place runs - sounds awful.
Porsha I think you are really a sweet and naive person, please don't change. As for singing, you have a nice voice, but not quite good enough to make a singing career. This is not meant to be mean, but truthful.
Wishing you nothing but the best in your singing career and other business ventures. You are a lovely, classy lady and I look forward to seeing you on the big screen or a musical.The best is yet to come!
Porsha, God bless you and good luck.
For the people acting foolish making comments to bash her, remember Kim could not sing at all, and she smokes. Porsha can sing a tune, and with some work, she will prefect singing.
Girl, ignore these jealous have-nots!
Do you! I respect that you believe in yourself, and aren't afraid to TRY! Unlike some of these broads hating on your effort.
Best of luck to you
Congrats on moving on and becoming a strong independent women. I admire the way you seem to be taking things in stride. Your singing was lovely at that audition. Congratulations.
Porsha, only you can tell a story about you fainting over an audition and people thinking it was the Holy Ghost. LOL! Do not allow Fear to steal your dreams. You go girl, we are very proud of you. Stay focus and keep it moving.
Porsha, you have a beautiful voice. Stay focus on yourself, keep up the good work. Also I loved when you and your sister left that fiasco pajama party. Stay classy
Really people???!!! Give her a break. She has been going through a really rough time with the divorce and it's obvious and lot of you have not gone through heartbreak. If you had, you'd have some sympathy for her. When you're heartbroken, you don't feel like doing anything. Let alone blogging. So, stop reading and throwing shade and show some support for this young black woman.
@Suerose Amen. Real Talk.
@Sheila6363 thank you for my laugh for the day. ROTFLMAO
@Sheila6363 LOL...I said the same thang. Kim thanks to Khandi was the only one capable of pulling off a real hit and it took her blonde hair and top heavy top to bring that about and sadly the only people that bought it? Where the gays
@piperbeau Thank God Bravo has dropped this girl for next season, I agree with NeNe in this case only....Porsha is nothing but a jump off, using anybody and anyone to promote her cause...ie Porsha.
@resolute2012 Friend, we got talented real singers out here who can't get a break.....its all about the song and material you pick to make it in this industry...Porsha's voice ain't gonna cut it nowhere.
@chachame Preach now . Someone telling the truth.
@chachame and she's not that much of a beauty
@chachame Well your opinion... I actually and as a singer myself think she has a voice, and so does kandi who has said it plenty of times. I trust the opinion of a grammy singer songwriter over an anonymous hater online...
@MIKEYBOY412 This actually made me bust out laughing! Thanks..I needed that!
@spring9628 Please don't change? Are you serious? This girl desperately need to grow up and get with the real world. She's so stuck on the exterior of Porsha, ie the weave and clothes and Kordell's money and is not willing to look at the interior of what makes her tick. I'd say she desperately needs changing and yesterday!!
@Call_It_Out I don't think people are 'hating' on Porsha. It sounds like some people are telling her the truth about her singing abilities. Maybe it's better for Porsha to hear the truth now instead of investing money and years into a dream that'll never leave the ground. There is value however in Porsha improving her life by educating herself with real time life experiences instead of doing the typical black girl thing selling hair. Wendy Williams gave Porsha good advice. Wendy told her that she doesn't have much time to be naïve before she loses her creditability and looks completely foolish at her age. Porsha is too old to be gullible and her Barbie doll personality and looks is shallow. Porsha reminds me of the ditzy airhead chick that Suzanne Somers played in Three's a Company. With all of the established female singers, Porsha's survivability rate in the music industry is nil to none.
@Call_It_Out people are so mean now a days it's crazy. why would anyone jump on her she is newly single and trying something on her own. SMH
@metoo2 - 'picking up a few books' won't do anything, she needs to READ the content of the books to get anything from them.
I am surprised that for someone who was from such a 'priviledged' family, she is so misinformed as she is. I don't know if I should laugh when I hear some of the things that come out of her mouth or pity her.
However, she's definitely has a talent for singing!! And she's definitely very pretty. I guess two out of three ain't bad.
@denise4925 Girl, please the only pains this girl is feeling is losing Krodell's coins!!
denise4925 I hear you, and I myself have gone through a divorce after a 20yr marriage with a man where I had to pay no bills, didn't know how to read a bill okay? but that was the time in my life when I gave birth to me. In pregnancy you push when the contractions/pain comes, same in life, this is the time when you really look at who you are and challenge yourself to see just what it is you know, need to know and can do and need to do. I am a better woman, a more knowledgeable woman, and talented woman and an independent woman because of how I pushed during my pain, I had to, I had two daughters I had to provide for, I went to school, surrounded myself with older women, and successful women. This is no time to pat her on the back like a baby and sugar coat nothing, this woman has been taken care of all her life and knows nothing. Keep it all the way 100. If she don't push in the pain, she'll never bring to birth the WOMAN Porsha, her mind will stay elementary if somebody don't push her to get together. I real man want a real woman. Every man she gets is going to act like her daddy and treat her like a kid if she don't get it together. If she that talented in music it will be there, she needs to get some education, some common sense and some life experiences, and if she wants to sing she needs a voice coach
@denise4925 I feel for Porsha and her divorce. I like her, But we the viewers watch and the blogs are supposed to be a recap of her thoughts. Nothing for weeks and then this blog about her single dropping. I didn't come on here for an infomercial.
@denise4925 Oh please - her marriage was a sham. It was more like breaking up with a boyfriend. There were no children involved, she's still young and got over it pretty well if you ask me. Her only problem (other than being illiterate) is that she felt she deserved more money in the divorce.
