But like Aphrodite before her, Porsha has found over the years that being the goddess of love doesn't guarantee the best luck in the romance department. Most recently, People reported that she had filed for divorce from husband Simon Guobadia after just 15 months of marriage, shortly after her return to The Real Housewives of Atlanta for the upcoming 16th season was announced on February 13.

Who is Porsha Williams' ex, Simon Guobadia on The Real Housewives of Atlanta?

Porsha revealed in May 2021 she'd fallen in love with Simon the previous month and he then revealed they'd already gotten engaged.

Fans were quick to notice that Simon had been married to Season 13 RHOA friend Falynn Pina, which is how the two met. Porsha and Simon said that his divorce was finalized in January 2021, before he and Porsha had begun dating.

During a November 2021 appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Porsha clarified the timeline of their relationship, noting that Simon reached out via DM "after he had posted about the divorce" from Falynn.

"I actually told him, like, 'I'm sorry for your divorce' and all of that because I know what that feels like," she said. "I know what it feels like to go through betrayal and hurt."

The twosome subsequently highlighted their relationship and engagement on The Real Housewives of Atlanta: Porsha's Family Matters, which aired for seven episodes 

Porsha and Simon officially wed in November 2022 in not one, but two official weddings: a traditional Nigerian ceremony followed by a traditional American ceremony.

"One year down forever to go," wrote Porsha in a November 2023 Instagram post celebrating their first wedding anniversary. She also added the hashtags "soulmate" and "twin flame."

People reported that Porsha filed divorce papers on February 22, 2024 in Atlanta. Neither has commented on the split to date.

Who is Porsha Williams' ex-fiancé, Dennis McKinley on The Real Housewives of Atlanta?

News first broke that Porsha was engaged to "Hot Dog King" Dennis McKinley in October 2018, with the proposal broadcast during Season 11, Episode 15 of RHOA.

"Would you like to be Mrs. McKinley?" Dennis asked her in the episode. His question was met with a resounding "yes" and stream of tears.

The pair welcomed a daughter, Pilar Jhena (PJ), in March 2019.

But the two split up a couple months after the baby girl's birth when rumors of infidelity (and some other things) began to swirl. 

"Let me get this straight. There's all these rumors of cheating, and drugs, and animals, and... Dennis gets to take the ring back?" asked Cynthia Bailey during Season 12.

During Season 12, Episode 2, Porsha revealed that the cheating rumors were true, and that The Original Hot Dog Factory owner had admitted to being unfaithful during her pregnancy.

“After I heard what I needed to hear, I got up and stormed out. At that point, I didn’t want to hear anymore. Because for me, I had just heard my fiancé say that he actually had sex with someone while I was carrying our child," shared Porsha in the episode. "To be disrespected at the most sacred time in life is like, I just can’t forgive that. I’m looking at my daughter, telling her, ‘I’m going to work it out, I’m going to work it out.’ But some stuff is not forgivable, and I don’t think she would want me to have to deal with certain things. I don’t think she’d want that.”

These days, the former pair are coparenting PJ.

Who is Porsha Williams' ex-husband Kordell Stewart on The Real Housewives of Atlanta?

When fans first met Porsha in Season 5 Episode 3, she was newly married to Kordell Stewart.

"I'm married to Kordell Stewart. He's an ex-NFL football player. When my family met him, my uncle was taking pictures of him. My brother was going crazy. I was like 'What is going on?'" she shared. "Ever since I was 25, I knew I wanted to be married by 30. And the man of my dreams approached me at 27."

Porsha met Kordell, who was a football quarterback who primarily played for the Pittsburgh Steelers, in 2009. They tied the knot in May 2011 and were married for less than three years before Kordell filed for divorce in March 2013.

According to Porsha, she was "completely blindsided" by the filing. 

"I looked on Twitter and I saw 'Kordell filed for divorce from Porsha,'" she shared during Season 6.

In 2017, Porsha reflected on her first marriage in a conversation with The Daily Dish.

"It's hard to say [what lessons I learned] because what I really loved about marriage was that union. I loved knowing that I belonged to someone. They belonged to me and that I had a household that I was taken care of and that I was proud in that moment," she shared at the time.. "And I think that will probably be what will force me to get married again 'cause that fulfillment means a lot to me, family means a lot to me."

Who else has Porsha Williams dated on The Real Housewives of Atlanta?

Following her divorce from Kordell, Porsha briefly dated NFL player Duke Williams, who was 10 years her junior. The pair called it quits in September 2015 after a few months of dating.

"I just wanted somebody at that point to be a support system for me, and Duke was that," Porsha told The Daily Dish a couple of months after their breakup. "Problem was he wasn't here in Atlanta a lot... once he got to camp he started really focusing on that."

During Season 9 of RHOA — which aired in 2016 ‚ Porsha was dating former flame Todd Stewart. Fans might remember Episode 7, when she first introduced him to her family.

However, the RHOA fan favorite announced during the reunion that their relationship was "on pause."
