The Bravo boss revealed that Porsha Williams nearly got fired from the Real Housewives of Atlanta. During a new interview, Andy Cohen shared that shocking detail but also revealed what the reality TV star did to change the producers’ minds, therefore, saving her job!
While on The Jenny McCarthy Show yesterday, Andy opened up about many things, Porsha being one of the topics of discussion, more precisely, her rocky history with RHOA.
According to him, back in 2012, during her first season on the show, the producers were not so sure she was the right fit for the show.
That being said, while trying to decide whether she should stay or get fired, they seemed to lean more towards the latter!
‘At the end of Porsha’s first season, Porsha was at the reunion, and it had been announced about a day before, that Kordell was leaving her and there was a dialogue amongst the producers about whether Porsha was even going to come back or not at that time. This was at the end of her first season,’ Andy told Jenny.
The host was obviously shocked to hear that and left out a ‘wow,’ prompting Andy to go on and explain that Porsha proved her worthiness at the reunion.
‘She got up there at the reunion and I was watching and I was like, ‘oh my God’ I left and was like, ‘I stand for Porsha, that was incredible’ and she cemented her place on the show. She gave like a 2 minute soliloquy about who she truly was and how she was going to live her life going forward and this was not going to define her and she is stronger than this and I was like, ‘oh my god’. I totally underestimated this woman and look at where she’s now on the show.’
