Just a few years ago we had no idea who Porsha Williams was — no shade, girl, just the truth — but now the Real Housewives of Atlanta star has used her reality TV gig to open up new doors, and we’re thrilled to tell you that the 33-year-old just landed an amazing gig! What’s Porsha’s new job? Read on for the deets!
Porsha has been appearing as a guest host on Dish Nation’s Rickey Smiley Morning Show for the past several months, and yesterday, August 6, Dish Nation co-executive producers Michael Bachmann and Matt Blanock announced that the reality star has scored a permanent co-hosting job on Dish Nation. Get it, girl.
In a press release, Michael and Matt stated, “This week, Dish Nation celebrates 500 episodes. We are thrilled to have the talented and tenacious Porsha Williams around for the next 500 and beyond.”
Porsha was also understandably excited about this new venture, stating, “On my very first day in the Atlanta studios of Dish Nation,I immediately felt a natural chemistry with the team. Rickey Smiley is an amazing comic, and I am thrilled to learn and grow with one of the best morning hosts in the country.”
The RHoA darling continued the love fest on Twitter, thanking her fans for their support. “Thank you everyone! I'm so excited and grateful to join the cast of @DishNation ! I'm looking forward to lots of laughs and thigh-slapping,” she wrote on August 6.
As far as we know this new job won’t interfere with Porsha’s role on RHoA. In fact, since Season 7 of the Bravo hit is currently filming, it’s likely that we’ll get to learn even more about her new gig and maybe even watch her get promoted!
