Culture & Entertainment

Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams announced her engagement to Simon Guobadia AKA castmate Falynn Guobadia's recently divorced husband last week, and Black Twitter has thoughts. Read Porsha's statement on Instagram below:


"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," she wrote on Instagram, confirming rumors circling around social media of their relationship. "I choose happiness every morning and every night. Tuning out all negative energy and only focused on positive wishes. He makes me so happy and to me, that is what matters most."

She continued:

"For all of you that need facts, I get the optics but Simon filed for divorce from a previous marriage in January. I had nothing to do with their divorce filing. That's between the two of them Falynn and I are not friends, and Simon's divorce has been settled. Our relationship is a positive, loving step forward in everybody's lives."

Her note was met with mixed reviews from fans.

While some felt like this...

Many of Porsha’s followers felt like this...

We must preface Porsha's engagement news with the fact that Falynn Guobadia, announced to the public that she and Simon had called it quits a few weeks prior. And while on paper they were together for two years, in his own split announcement, he said they were only together a year and a half.

And Porsha stands firm in saying that she didn't start dating him until his divorce was final. (Sidenote: Falynn and Porsha may not be friends, but you know who are friends? The father of Porsha's one-year-old daughter, Pilar, Dennis McKinley, and Simon, as pictured here.)

While Porsha’s engagement controversy has been the talk of Twitter, at least she can laugh at herself...

Although it’s been jokes, the support has been rolling in...

Leave it to Porsha’s other RHOATL castmate, Kenya Moore, to chime into the conversation as well...

One thing's for sure, whether you agree with Porsha's newfound love or don't, we all can't wait to see how this will play out on next season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. In the meantime let's LOL, because once again the internet is undefeated.

This is something that I've been wanting to write about for a while now. There are a few reasons why too. One is that I grew up hearing that happiness is an emotion — and a fleeting one at that; that's why the focus should actually be more on being in a state of joy. Secondly, I can't tell you how many times I have looked a husband or wife in the eye as they told me they were leaving their marriage — not because of infidelity or abuse; it was simply because "I'm not happy anymore" (more on that in a bit). And three, I also can't tell you how many times a day will go by without me hearing or reading some variation of "do whatever makes you happy". LAWD.

So, here's the deal about store-bought lubricant. Oftentimes, when people think about using it, it's in reference to "treating" vaginal dryness or making sex easier post-menopause (when our vagina walls tend to be thinner and our natural lubrication isn't as much as it once was). However, as you're about to see in just a few minutes, it really doesn't matter how wet you're naturally able to get or how old you are, everyone should have at least a few tubes of lube in their possession — an oil-based kind for non-penetrative sexual stimulation; a water-based one for sexy toys (or if you or your partner's genitalia is naturally sensitive) and a silicone-based one for intercourse.

We all know the feeling. You plop down in a stylist's seat excitedly waiting for your slay to begin, only to be met with a look of panic when they actually lay eyes on your hair. As a woman with thick and coarse 4C textured hair, I know that gaze well. Sadly, so do most Black women, and it's been an ongoing problem in the entertainment world for decades.
