Porsha Williams (left) and Yandy Smith were both arrested while demanding justice for Breonna Taylor, an emergency medical worker who was killed by police in her Louisville home in March.

The reality TV personalities were at a protest for Taylor in Louisville, Kentucky on Tuesday when they were cuffed and booked.

The pair, who star in Bravo's The Real Housewives of Atlanta and VH1's Love & Hip-Hop respectively, were among 68 people arrested while calling for the arrest of two cops who fatally shot Taylor multiple times during a bungled drug raid after three officers executed a no-knock warrant at her home.

The protest followed BreonnaCon - an event that spanned several days focused on bringing the community together to get justice for Taylor - and saw protesters march from South Central Park to the Louisville Metro Police Department Training Academy.

Police blocked protesters from going past the Denny Crum Overpass, and charged those taken into custody with obstructing the roadway and disorderly conduct.

Williams shared a photo of her and Smith sitting in the street with their fists raised in front of a line of cops. She wrote in the caption: "SAY HER NAME #BreonnaTaylor."

Meanwhile, Smith posted a clip of herself being escorted away by cops amid the protest, and penned: "If we don't get no justice." She captioned another protest video: "Matter fact you ain't gonna take me sitting down. I'm standing my ground!!!!!!!!"

Both Williams and Smith were also arrested following a similar protest in Louisville in July, which took place at the home of Attorney General Daniel Cameron.

It has been over five months since Breonna Taylor was killed. None of the officers have been arrested as yet, with one of the three fired for use of deadly force in June.

Louisville's mayor, City Council and the state's governor are all Democrats.

Taylor, an emergency medical worker, was fatally shot multiple times in her own home during a bungled drug raid by three plainclothes police officers.

One officer has since been fired, but protesters say that's not enough. They won't rest until all three officers are let go.

According to Williams' fiance Dennis McKinley, the reality TV star and mom-of-one was arrested alongside Women's March co-organizer Tamika D. Mallory, rapper Trae tha Truth, and Love & Hip Hop co-creator and star Yandy Smith, among others.

Fans and friends admired Porsha's courage and willingness to give her freedom for what she believes in.

"She has always been fearless. You mess with her people, you mess with her," her sister Lauren Williams wrote on Instagram. "She takes the case of #breonnataylor personally and she's sacrificing work, time with her loved ones, and her comfort to make sure the offenders are held accountable for their actions.

"This is her passion, this is her purpose. God please protect them," she added.

Porsha Williams teared up while discussing racism in America and the ongoing George Floyd protests.

"Extra" spoke to Porsha, who recently attended protests in Atlanta.

Overcome with emotion, she said, "It's just difficult to keep waking up and seeing more and more death.

"More black people being killed and even more and more white people being mistreated at the protests. It's just hard to wake up and see what we're dealing with."

Porsha said her 15-month-old daughter, Pilar Jhena, is part of the driving force to fight for change, explaining, "When I see my daughter, it's just like... 'I'm gonna fight. I'm gonna push.' I don't want her to have to deal with this. I don't want anyone to have to deal with this, honestly," she said tearfully.

The 38-year-old took to social media to explain how she and others were tear-gassed by police on the frontlines of an Atlanta protest.

"That was just awful. It really was... It was disheartening to be out there and try to be heard and wanted to send this powerful message that we are standing together in a visual way... And to be gassed felt like I was being silenced."

The reality star, who has been active with Black Lives Matter in both Breonna Taylor and Floyd's cases, vowed to keep fighting emphasizing, "It was tough for me to go back out there after that. It was a bit traumatizing. But I'll tell you what it really taught me is that protesting is a real thing... You are definitely putting your life on the line."

"I am a black woman and I'm always gonna be proud of that," Williams continued. "And I'm always going to stand... with my people against injustice."

On a lighter note, Porsha is getting ready to celebrate her birthday. "My birthday is coming up June 22 — that's exciting. I’ll be 39, closer to 40.”

NeNe Leakes

NeNe Leakes is making waves on the set of Real Housewives of Atlanta. The 50-year-old mother of 2 has been at odds with Porsha Williams since the start of season 10 when NeNe told Andy Cohen that if it were up to her, she would "get rid of" Porsha.

"In my opinion, yes -- the cast should be changed up a bit," NeNe told TooFab in a recent interview.

"If I had it my way, I would get rid of two girls and bring in two new ones for excitement. You know, after a while with some of the girls, they just don't have anything going on exciting enough to be a main cast member."
