'RHOA' star Porsha Williams says she's 'crazy in love' with Simon Guobadia, addresses the 'optics'

·2 min read

Porsha Williams is sharing her "beautiful" new relationship while also clearing up any confusion around the timing of their union.

The reality TV star confirmed her relationship with Simon Guobadia, the ex-husband of her "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" co-star Falynn Guobadia in an Instagram post Monday.

"Our relationship began a month ago—yes we are crazy in love. I know it’s fast but we are living life each day to its fullest," Williams captioned the photo of her and Guobadia. "I choose happiness every morning and every night. Tuning out all negative energy and only focused on positive wishes."

Williams said she understands the "optics," but wrote that Simon Guobadia's divorce from Falynn Guobadia is finalized and she had nothing to do with the split.

Falynn Guobadia was introduced to the cast of "Real Housewives" during the fourth episode of the most recent season as William's friend, but in the Monday post Williams wrote they are "not friends."

Williams joined "Real Housewives" during the fifth season as the wife of former NFL player Kordell Stewart. The couple divorced in 2013. In Season 11, Williams got engaged to business owner Dennis McKinley, whom she shares 2-year-old daughter, Pilar McKinley with.
