(Gossip-Grind News) Porsha Williams Blindsided By “RHOA” Demotion:

When the official cast for the new season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta was announced on Wednesday, two season veteran Porsha Williams was just as blindsided by the cast shakeup as her fans were — and only Dish Nation has the scoop exclusively from Williams herself.

After joining the ladies on Bravo in 2012, Williams quickly brought a dramatic flair to the show and made good friends with the likes of co-stars NeNe Leakes and Kandi Burruss.

“After a long season of filming, and giving my all, I was blindsided by the announcement from the network that I was demoted from ‘Housewife Status,’ but would remain on the show in a ‘Friend’ capacity,” Williams told Dish Nation.

“Unfortunately, I can only be PORSHA, and portraying anything else, would not be genuine nor honest. This moment is bittersweet, but God has been so amazing to me, and I think this is a perfect time for me to spread my wings, and finally focus on all of my upcoming projects.”

As Dish previously reported, Cynthia Bailey, Kandi Burruss, NeNe Leakes, Kenya Moore and Phaedra Parks are back for Season 7, along with newcomers Claudia Jordan and Demetria McKinney.

Williams joined Dish Nation in June, teaming with The Rickey Smiley Morning Show out of Atlanta and she looks forward to focusing her energy on the program.

See Williams’ full statement below:

This is not an easy time for me right now, but I want let everyone to know that I loved being a ‘Housewife’ on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, and I am thankful for Bravo for the opportunity but it’s not goodbye, you will see me on the show throughout the season sharing and bonding with the other women and I promise to stay connected with my fans as I start an exciting new time in my life.

After a long season of filming, and giving my all, I was blindsided by the announcement from the network that I was demoted from ‘Housewife Status,’ but would remain on the show in a ‘Friend’ capacity.

Unfortunately, I can only be PORSHA, and portraying anything else, would not be genuine nor honest. This moment is bittersweet, but God has been so amazing to me, and I think this is a perfect time for me to spread my wings, and finally focus on all of my upcoming projects.

In addition to having my recurring role on RHOA, I will be able to focus my attention on my career as an Entertainment Correspondent on DISH NATION on the Fox Network, recording my album, building my businesses, and taking baby steps towards nurturing my relationship with my new love!!!

This is the beginning of a new chapter in my life, and I will be giving my fans & supporters another chance to watch my growth as I take on the world in my own special way very soon!! I am so Thankful for all that #TEAMPORSHA does to keep me INSPIRED every day! Stay Tuned…

Did you catch the line in there about “taking baby steps” with a new love interest? Sounds like things are heating up with LeSean McCoy.
