Sometimes the drama can get a little heavy for the ladies in both Atlanta and Beverly Hills. But when Porsha Williams came face-to-face with Kyle Richards on the set of The New Celebrity Apprentice, there was no tension to be found between the two Housewives — much to the sadness of the rest of the cast, we're sure. (Luckily, there was plenty of other drama to feast on.)
"She and I worked really good together. I know what I'm good at; she knows what she's good at," The Real Housewives of Atlanta radio host recently told The Daily Dish about The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills mom. "I think people thought, with us being Housewives, we were gonna like butt heads and pour wine on each other, but it was none of that. I loved her. She is so fun."
While Kyle has since been eliminated from the competition, Porsha's still fighting for her chance at victory. However, throughout filming, she did have to find some strength to keep her head in the game.
"You know when I first walked in on the set for Celebrity Apprentice, it was so intimidating. I mean you have all of these celebrities who I've always admired [like] Boy George, Laila Ali; just everybody. And you're wondering whose team you're going to be on, how you're gonna stack up with the competition," she recalled, adding early on she felt like she was being tested.
"I was the first project manager, so I was like, 'They set me up. Everybody voted me, basically, in to vote me out.' And I just had to pull through. I had to just dig down deep. Both of my parents were entrepreneurs and I just had to dig into some things that were in me that I didn't know were there to make it through," she said. "So you see me just fight the rest of the season. And I just had to really realize that I'm not just there for myself, I'm there fighting for my family's charity, Hosea Feed the Hungry and Homeless, and on those days where I was just like, 'You know what? This is too much,' cause I did reach those days, [I was like], 'OK, I think I'm just gonna wake up and catch a flight home, I realized I can't do that. I'm here trying to win money for this charity and you just kind of fight through."

And while she initially wasn't sure if boss Arnold Schwarzenegger was a fan of hers, she realized that he at least could recognize her skills. "I was glad as I was watching the show with everybody else to see that he actually was acknowledging some of my skills," she said. "Like he liked that I was a risk taker and he just loved that I was fearless."
