Porsha Williams and Shamea Morton have been friends for quite a long time before this season of the RHOA. Everything was going along just fine until Phaedra Parks brought up the topic of Shamea and Kandi Burruss hooking up.
Shamea told the Dish, “I didn’t care about what Phaedra said as much because she’ll do anything to get herself out of the hot seat. The thing that hurt me was having Porsha not defend me, or even go as far as co-sign it, in a sense, even though she said that wasn’t her intention,” Shamea added. “The least she could have done is remove herself from that conversation, not add to it. That was very hurtful.”
After the episode aired Shamea mentioned that she had a conversation with Porsha about making a public apology about the rumors that were being spread. Porsha wrote in her BravoTV Blog back in January, “For the record, Shamea has not mentioned or told me that there is anything going on with Kandi other than a close friendship,” she explained. “The reason I mentioned that they were even close is because Shamea is indeed close with them. That was meant in no other context other than friendship.”
Porsha then added that she didn’t want to get caught up in the rumors between two of her good friends. “I really wanted to remain neutral and that is such a hard thing to do when both people who I respect and admire feel passionate in their point of view. I don’t ever want to see someone who I call a friend hurt in any way, and I pride myself on defending someone who I call my friend, but this situation overall was a very tough one for me. My hope is that we can all move on from it. I do not want to watch anyone feeling attacked or throwing any shade.”
Shamea believes that Porsha never came forward about the public apology.
“I told her I felt like in her blog she was being more neutral, and saying she didn’t want to be in the middle of it and not necessarily sticking up for her friend. I just felt like there was no apology,” Shamea said. “I was planning my wedding, and Porsha was supposed to be there with me, it’s very disheartening.”
Shamea has always been skeptical about Porsha’s friendship with Phaedra. “We’ve been blessed to always trust each other and love each other through it all, but I told Porsha, ‘Girl, stuff like that is detrimental and very harmful to a relationship. Not even just me and our friendship, but me and my fiancé [Gerald Mwangi],'” Shamea said. “Thank God I got a great man, but you can mess up my happy home. I can’t take risks like that with you and not when you co-sign stuff like that. I don’t want to be a part of that.”
Shamea still believes that her and Porsha’s friendship will be were it once was. “I am hopeful that we can, but at this point it’s just going to take a lot on both sides. I’m actually kind of drained and I’m tired of trying. I continue to tell Porsha to be careful,” Shamea explained. “I would have never done anything like that to Porsha, especially not to someone she already had some sort of past drama with. I don’t know if we can ever get back to that place. Would I like for us to? Absolutely. I love Porsha, and I want nothing but the best for her. I just don’t know if her loyalty lies with me anymore. I’m afraid that in the future she might meet someone, a new friend, and then her loyalty would change again. It’s going to take some time.”
