Will Porsha Williams & Rickey Smiley Get Together?

Who knew sniffing could be so ... sexy? We certainly didn't until Porsha Williams shared a special sense-ual moment with her Dish Nation co-host Rickey Smiley earlier this season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

Ever since that flirty time, it seems like everyone is sniffing, er, we mean shipping Porsha and Rickey. The couple that sniffs together, stays together, right? 

Well, Rickey certainly piqued our interest about a possible romantic future for these two when he had the sweetest things to say about Porsha on The Wendy Williams Show in January. "Porsha's a southern belle. She's awesome. She's kind. She's friendly. She's a lot of fun to hang out with. We hang out sometimes. When we all hang out, we have a good time. You know, just a good southern belle that's really wifey-like. She's a good catch," Rickey said. "I've hung out with Porsha and been with Porsha and her family. Those are really, really good people, and she would definitely make someone a great wife, definitely."

Rickey and Porsha got a little flirty with their fragrance earlier this season of RHOA. 

Porsha also showed her love for Rickey on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen Sunday night. As far as becoming more than just friends with Rickey, there's just one problem, according to Porsha: they work together. "It's just not good to mix pleasure with your professional life. It's just not good, because I feel like what if it doesn't work out, you know what I'm saying?" Porsha said, before joking, "Maybe we'll do like a pact. So if I'm 40 and I'm not married, Rickey, come on!"

The Daily Dish caught up with Porsha on Monday, and she said everyone hoping Rickey will be her Valentine needs to slow your roll. "With Rickey, I want people to slow down. Chemistry like this that happens in these type of situations, he doesn't work somewhere else. We work together. So it's not easy to make that decision to cross that line," she explained. "I've heard that he thinks that I would be a great wife. I think that he'd be a great husband. He's an excellent father. So as far as having kids and wanting to pick the right dad, he would be the one. But I think that we're just friends, overall."

When it comes to finding Mr. Right, Porsha is definitely taking the search seriously. "My mindframe in going in for dating is I want someone who's dating with a purpose, 'cause I know the difference. You know, you could just be dating and dating. I've done that, clearly," she told The Daily Dish. "But I'm dating with a purpose. I want to get to know this person. I want us to move a little swiftly if we can. And I want kids, and I want us to get married, and I want all of that. But most of all, I just want to have a natural connection with someone. I don't want to just settle. So I think that's most important."
