Watch out, Empire fans! Porsha Williams just might be coming to the soapy prime-time Fox drama

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta on Peacock and the Bravo App.

Porsha recently "auditioned" for a part during an episode of Dish Nation. Her song of choice? Her single, "Flatline," of course.

And after she stunned her Dish Nation co-stars with the live version, she decided that maybe she really could be on the show. "I'm gonna be on Empire," she joked, making sure to remind fans they can pick up the track on iTunes.

For those who haven't yet caught the series, it revolves around a family who runs a hip-hop record label. When its founder (played by Terrence Howard), finds out he has a terminal illness he must decide which son will take over the business—but his ex wife, just released from prison, doesn't make it easy for him.

Porsha is not the only Atlanta Housewife getting in on the Empire action. Kandi Burruss recently shared a selfie featuring herself and the show's sassy leading lady, Taraji P. Henson. It's safe to say that Empire fever is contagious with the Housewives of Hotlanta.

Previously, Kandi, who is a real-life music industry insider, tweeted about watching the series after it premiered in January. "I just watched #Empire for the 2nd time. This show is so good! Congrats@tarajiphenson you are amazing on the show!" she wrote on Twitter. "I love the whole cast & the music is great as well. My DVR is set for next Weds."

Phaedra Parks has also caught the series, labeling it "delicious" on social media.

Their fandom makes sense given that Executive producer Lee Daniels recently revealed that the show's drama was partly inspired by the Real Housewives franchise.

"I'm addicted to them damn 'Housewives,'" he told Entertainment Weekly. "I had to do something to trump those [women]. It's time for cinema to come to TV again! I gotta bring them down."
