Wendy Williams might consider Porsha Williams (no relation) less than smart, but the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star cautioned critics not to underestimate her.
Last month, when Porsha visited Wendy’s show, the host questioned her intelligence in the kindest way possible.
“Your behavior is less than smart,” Wendy told her. “It seems like you’ve been coddled and spoiled.”
Porsha recently admitted to Arsenio Hall that she is bothered by the jabs.
“I think it’s just insulting to have anyone come to your show and me be brave enough to come and share my story and be disrespected in that way,” said Porsha who didn’t mention Wendy by name.
She didn’t exactly blame the editing for the way she sometimes comes across, but she pointed out that when the average person says something a little off, it’s not normally broadcast to millions of viewers to scrutinize.
The reality show is entertainment. They do edit certain things to look a certain way. I may say something that’s really goofy. Some people, it may end up on the floor. For me, it ends up on the show,” she explained.
While her TV persona might not seem like an intellectual threat, Porsha said she is a force to be reckoned with and she’s using her reality TV platform to reinvent herself.
“At the end of the day, I will sneak up on you because I always have a plan. I definitely have changed and I’m about my business,” she said. “It’s really not about how other people see me. It’s about how I see myself and if you underestimate me, you will be shocked.”
Porsha may not have mentioned Wendy by name, but her co-star Kandi Burruss did during a recent interview on “Watch What Happens Live.”
“Last year, every week Wendy was coming on saying negative things about my relationship with [fiancé] Todd [Tucker]…I was like, ‘I don’t care what Wendy said.’ Let’s ask Wendy about her relationship,” said Kandi, who has speculated that Wendy’s comments turned Kandi’s mom against Todd. “I just don’t like the fact that she’s so judgmental about my relationship when I think our situations are similar.”
