Porsha Williams and Simon Guobadia, of Real Housewives of Atlanta, are off the market and engaged to be married. The happy couple made the surprise announcement in a post on Porsha's Instagram page on Monday.

Tongues were wagging on Mother's Day when Porsha posted a photo of herself flirting with Falynn Guobadia's ex-husband.

Rumors swirled all weekend that Porsha and Simon were engaged.

Then on Monday, May 10, Porsha made their engagement Instagram official by sharing a photo of herself coupled up with Simon on a yacht.

She captioned the photo:

"Our relationship began a month ago — yes we are crazy in love. I know it's fast but we are living life each day to its fullest. I choose happiness every morning and every night. Tuning out all negative energy and only focused on positive wishes. He makes me so happy and to me, that is what matters most.

For all of you that need facts, I get the optics but Simon filed for divorce from a previous marriage in January. I had nothing to do with their divorce filing. That’s between the two of them.

Falynn and I are not friends, and Simon’s divorce has been settled. Our relationship is a positive, loving step forward in everybody’s lives.

Simon and Dennis are committed to being respectful and supportive of my happiness in this situation, as well as being the best co-parents they can be to baby PJ. Two black men stepping up and being amazing people-let’s praise them!!!!

It’s truly a beautiful moment in my life & we cannot wait to spend the rest of our lives together. xoxo P #LoveWins."

Kandi Burruss opened up about possibly leaving the Bravo reality show Real Housewives of Atlanta after 12 seasons.

Bravo reportedly booted original cast member NeNe Leakes off the show due to constant conflicts with the cast.

With NeNe gone, Cynthia Bailey (right) is the oldest cast member at 54. Cynthia is pictured at a 2017 event with RHOA cast members (L-R) Kandi, Kenya Moore and Shereé Whitfield.

Despite getting along well with her colleagues, Kandi, 44, is considering moving on as well. But she would rather leave on her own terms and not be fired like NeNe.

"You just contemplate, like, I don't know, 'When is your time?'" she told The Jasmine Brand on Thursday. "It's not like it's not like a definite answer, you know what I mean."

The mother-of-three said she does "enjoy being a part of the show" but she's tired of all the shenanigans. "It is stressful at times. It is a lot going on, you know, but I do love the fans. I love the support of the fans."

In April, Kandi (pictured with hubby Todd Tucker) told Access Hollywood that she has been considering leaving "RHOA."

"I'm always contemplating when is my time for me to make a move," she said. "For me, I've had a great relationship with the network, so I don’t think it will ever be a situation where it would be a bad thing — at least, I hope it wouldn’t be."

Kandi joined the cast in season 2.

Fan favorites Phaedra Parks and Sheree Whitfield are set to return to Real Housewives of Atlanta next season.

Phaedra, an Atlanta attorney, was asked to leave the show after it was revealed that she told Porsha Williams that Kandi Burruss planned to drug and rape her.

Sheree was sent packing years ago due to a lack of a believable storyline and personality conflicts on the set.

However, the once popular reality TV show is bleeding viewers and Bravo is desperate to stop the bleeding.

The latest season averaged low ratings despite the #Strippergate scandal.

That left the show's producers with no choice but to bring back two of the show's more popular former cast members, Phaedra and Sheree.

According to The Sun, Phaedra's upcoming appearance on "Watch What Happens Live" may not be her last on the series.

And Sheree recently popped up on a special "Watch With Me" episode. Sheree is a fan favorite who is rumored to be engaged to her ex-convict boyfriend Tyrone.

Question: Would you watch RHOA again if Phaedra and Sheree returned to the series?

Kandi Burruss shamed herself by wearing a madame-inspired frock on RHOA Season 13 Reunion show on April 1. Fans called out the mom-of-two's ridiculous stripper attire.

Kandi's co-stars, Kenya Moore, Porsha Williams, Drew Sidora, LaToya Ali, Shamea Morton, and Marlo Hampton, all wore tasteful gowns for the all-black dungeon theme.

But fans dragged Kandi Burruss for wearing a black bodysuit, shorts and thigh-high slipper boots with a floor-length duster.

"[What the hell] do kandi have on," wrote one fan on Instagram.

In response to Bravo's publicity photo of her outfit, Kandi insisted she was within the theme of what Bravo told the cast to wear.

"I saw that ol' ugly picture that Bravo put out of my reunion look, I was like 'Really? That's the picture they chose?! Everybody tried to roast me but I actually was in the theme of what they told us the reunion was supposed to be which I was told it was supposed to be burlesque, 50 Shades Of Gray, dungeon, whatever."

Cast member LaToya Ali also embarrassed herself by wearing a barely there sheer, see through lingerie with just enough feathers to leave a little to the imagination.

According to vlogger Michelle, of StraightfromtheA.com, Porsha won the Best Dressed trophy

NeNe Leakes is a former reality TV star without a team. Her agents, publicists and attorneys reportedly grew tired of her shenanigans and washed their hands of her.

NeNe took to Twitter on Monday morning to complain that there's a conspiracy against her.

In a series of tweets, NeNe claimed she was dropped by her manager, Steven Grossman and her former attorney, Darrell Miller of Fox Rothschild LLP.

"You can't turn on your teammate and get away with this @stevengrossman #DarrellMiller #Foxrothschild suppression, retaliation, discrimination, unequal pay, devaluation against black women is real, it's painful and it hurts. I will fight for all women rights PS: FIX IT."

According to Lovebscott.com, NeNe is no longer represented by Grossman at Untitled Entertainment, or repped by ICM, and she has parted ways with lawyer, Miller.

NeNe, 53, is also no longer being represented by Jonesworks PR.

As you know, NeNe was unceremoniously fired by Bravo TV for insubordination on the set of Real Housewives of Atlanta.

According to B. Scott, Bravo execs grew tired of NeNe's sometimes violent behavior. NeNe has accused producer Andy Cohen of racism.

Like many women of her generation Drew Sidora grew up watching Kenya Moore on the Real Housewives of Atlanta.

The young actress dreamed of one day meeting her idol, but those dreams were shattered when the two women finally met in person.

The two personalities clashed right away, as Kenya, 50, was clearly intimidated by the fresh-faced 35-year-old, whom she rudely referred to as a "stray" in a recent confessional.

Drew was introduced to the cast by Kenya's BFF Cynthia Bailey, but Kenya became fast friends with another newbie, LaToya Ali, who was quick to throw shade at Drew.

LaToya, who isn't a full cast member on the show, made fun of Drew's wig one day. She told Kenya she could see glue under Drew's wig.

According to Hollywood Life, Kenya referred to Drew as "sneaky" after she confided in her about taking a private jet with LaToya, while the other woman rode in a Sprinter van.

Kenya had asked Drew to keep her luxurious extravagance a secret from the other women. But Drew innocently shared Kenya's secret with the other ladies.

When asked if she knew Kenya called her "sneaky," Drew said, "No, she never told me. She was smiling in my face."

"As you see she laughs in my face, she seems to treat me really nice, and then she runs back, you know, and she talks behind my back and I don't think that's right," Drew said.

Drew explained that she once admired the former beauty queen and dreamed of meeting her one day. The mom-of-three said she didn't expect Kenya to feel threatened by her and talk about her behind her back.

"When I met her I didn't have any problems with Kenya," Drew said.

"I looked up to her since I was a little girl... and meeting her she was just a different person and I didn't expect that behavior from her, and I was disappointed."

In case you missed episode 3 of Real Housewives of Atlanta, a new cast member was introduced last night.

The cast is getting younger and younger every season, as Bravo TV producer's push the aging Divas out the back door in hopes of boosting the show's ratings with a fresh new cast on season 13.

So far, their new strategy isn't working as the ratings continue to plummet, according to Michelle "ATLien" Brown. RHOA's ratings plummeted for the second week in a row.

According to Michelle, episode 2's ratings was 1.18 million viewers. Michelle says the RHOA cast is struggling without NeNe Leakes.

Anyway, back to the new cast member. Her name is Falynn Guobadia, 31, and she joins LaToya Ali and Drew Sidora, the latter of whom was promoted after appearing as a "friend" for three seasons.

In Sundays episode, Falynn invited RHOA cast members Porsha Williams, Porsha's sister, Lauren, and friend, Tanya, to her house for some poolside fun.

Falynn's net worth is estimated at $2 million and she is a fashion model, influencer and public speaker.

According to another blogger, Falynn agreed to appear on the show in exchange for a hefty paycheck. Don't tell me Falynn got the money that NeNe left on the table?

Falynn's husband, Simon, 57, is CEO of the SIMCOL Group, KLC Petroleum, and SIMCOL Petroleum. He also owned a restaurant that was forced to close down during the pandemic. His net worth is estimated at $25 million.

The couple is childless but they have children from previous relationships. Falynn has three children from her prior marriage. Her eldest son, Troy, is 14. She had him when she was 17.

Love & Hip-Hop: Atlanta cast members Sierra Gates and BK Brasco recently announced their engagement.

Sierra, who appeared on 3 seasons of LHHATL before being promoted to the main cast in season 9, accepted Brasco's proposal at the grand opening of his men's store, Band of Brothers, on Dec. 5.

The couple celebrated their engagement in Instagram photos snapped at maskless parties in Atlanta area nightclubs.

In an interview with MadameNoire, the couple talked about their future and their unorthodox relationship.

Sierra said that the success of their relationship is due to their decision to be celibate for a year.

"We love each other like love. A different type of love. We even took sex out of the equation for a whole year," she said, adding that God told Brasco that He would bless him if he didn't touch her for a year.

"When he told me that I was like, 'Boy, you just wanna cheat! Do what you wanna do!' And he was like, 'I really need to do this for my own mental. I really need to line myself up and I really need to be a better man for you.'"

Sierra claims it's completely normal to be celibate for a year while in a relationship.

"Honestly, I promise y'all, once we took that sex out of the equation, we found a deeper love for each other. Inseparable. We can lay next to each other. Most people like to be physical with each other. We can lay next to each other and just don't touch and be laughing, having a good time looking at movies, arguing, laughing again, cooking. Spending time with each other."

Losing a job is always difficult. Last month, NeNe Leakes tearfully admitted she was fired from Real Housewives of Atlanta, the reality TV series she helped to create in 2008.

After calling bloggers liars for months, 55-year-old NeNe finally came clean during an episode of Tamron Hall. She confessed that she was forced off RHOA by the show's producers.

She stopped short of saying why (hint: her attitude needed adjustment).

Now NeNe claims she is "losing sleep" because of the "trauma" she's been through.

In a heavily filtered post on her Instagram stories, NeNe said, "I haven't slept well lately! Kinda in a daze. Sometimes when you've been thru [trauma] it's hard to sleep."

NeNe's followers expressed their support for her, saying she has a lot to live for despite being kicked off RHOA.

Others begged her to stay off social media due to its addictive and manipulative environment.
