Porsha Williams, who was “demoted” to “friend” on Real Housewives of Atlanta, said that she doesn’t have a problem with the development.
Bravo made the announcement that she was demoted from full-time housewife to friend over the summer.
Williams recently gave a brief interview with TMZ, saying: “I really don’t know” if it’s a full-time demotion.
“I guess the main differences is that you won’t see as much of my personal life,” she said. “I have a lot going on [outside of Real Housewives].”
“You’ll see me pop in and out. You’ll still see me around,” she said.
Williams also said that there’s not a spinoff about Bravo. “I have spoken to Bravo about a spinoff but I’m working on a couple of projects myself,” she said.
When the announcement was made about her demotion, Williams said she was blindsided by it.
“This is not an easy time for me right now, but I want to let everyone know that I loved being a Housewife on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, and I am thankful [to] Bravo for the opportunity,” she said, via Dish Nation in October. “But it’s not goodbye; you will see me on the show throughout the season, sharing and bonding with the other women, and I promise to stay connected with my fans as I start an exciting new time in my life.”
“After a long season of filming, and giving my all, I was blindsided by the announcement from the network that I was demoted from ‘Housewife Status,’ but would remain on the show in a ‘Friend’ capacity,” she added. “Unfortunately, I can only be PORSHA, and portraying anything else would not be genuine nor honest.”
Williams added that the movie “is bittersweet, but God has been so amazing to me, and I think this is the perfect time for me to spread my wings and finally focus on all of my upcoming projects. In addition to having my recurring role on RHOA, I will be able to focus my attention on my career as an entertainment correspondent on Dish Nation on the Fox Network.”
