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."
"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.

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...

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 TheReal Housewives of Atlanta. In the meantime let's LOL, because once again the internet is undefeated.
