During a special two-part episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen to discuss the Black Lives Matter movement, Porsha Williams noted that the ladies of The Real Housewives of Atlanta are working together to use their platforms to fight for racial justice.
“Have you been in a text chain, or in a chat with your fellow Atlanta Housewives through all of this? And what’s been the discussion?” Andy Cohen asked.
“I’m in a text chain with Nene, Tanya, and Marlo. And we’ve been talking about this since the beginning,” explained Porsha. “And recently, we ended up reaching out to some of the other girls, and we’re trying to come together to make something happen. We have something that we’re working on that we will be putting out a little bit soon.”
“We definitely have to talk amongst ourselves and realize it’s definitely something that affects all of us as Black women, and I mainly, and Nene and all of us and Tanya and Marlo, we definitely feel, and I’m sure Kandi as well, all of them, feel we have to put whatever we dealt with at that heated reunion aside because it’s not about that,” Porsha continued. “It’s about us using our platform and not feeling ashamed to use our platform. A lot of people would be like, oh they’re clout chasing or this or that. Those are just again things to shame people into not speaking out. I think we would be doing an injustice to our people not to band together and speak out and use our voices for what’s going on.”
Porsha was also recently part of a powerful public service announcement Marlo created with a large group of Bravo women to support Black Lives Matter. The video features Cynthia Bailey and Mike Hill, Kandi Burruss, Eva Marcille, Tanya Sam, Nene Leakes, and Porsha Williams; The Real Housewives of Potomac's Gizelle Bryant , Monique Samuels, Ashley Darby, Candiace Dillard Bassett, Robyn Dixon, Karen Huger, and Wendy Osefo; and Married to Medicine's Dr. Jaqueline Walters and Curtis Berry, Dr. Heavenly Kimes, Dr. Contessa Metcalfe and Dr. Scott Metcalfe, and Buffie Purselle.
