Porsha Williams has had a tough day, but light may be on the other end of the tunnel. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star was struck with a scandal on May 6 when an old church sermon of hers popped up online, showing the reality star pledging to save lesbians and gays — though she’s since apologized. But in better news: She helped Bravo nab record ratings on Sunday night!
For the third week in a row, the cable network aired a RHoA reunion episode, followed by a one-on-one with one of the stars of the series. Last week, we watched as Cynthia Bailey teared up over the loss of her friendship with NeNe Leakes, and this week Porsha blew the competition away with her sit down with Andy Cohen!
According to Bravo, Porsha scored over 3.9 million viewers, and a 2.2 million rating amongst that coveted 18-49 demographic. That makes it the highest-rated ep of Watch What Happens Live ever — and that includes NeNe’s post-Season 6 finale chat with the host!
For her recap with Andy, NeNe also pulled in a respectable 3.5 million viewers, but she couldn’t hold up to the scandal-strewn Porsha. Much of that is likely attributed to the ex-Mrs. Kordell Stewart’s throw-down with Kenya Moore in “Reunion, Part 1.”
Beyond the one-on-one specials, RHoA’s final reunion ep was a franchise high itself, grabbing 4.3 million eyes. That made it the top-ranking unscripted cable show of the week among the 18 to 49 crew. Way to end on a high, you guys!
