Portia Williams is going to replace Tinsley Mortimer after a small change in casting for the third season of the series “Real Housewives: A Trip for Girls.” the negative reaction of critics who watched her behavior in the spin-off Porsche’s Family Matters. Fans wondered if Porsha’s short-lived spinoff would get another season or if she’d have the guts to return to RHOA.
Many assumed that Porsha left RHOA to avoid clashes with her engagement to Simon. Porsha was criticized after she announced her romance with Simon shortly after the season 13 reunion aired. Since Simon briefly appeared in season 13 as the husband of Falinn’s “Portia’s friend” Pina, many felt that she betrayed Falinn by contacting Simon shortly after their divorce. Confirming the affair, Porsha stated that she and Falinn are not friends. During the Porsche spin-off, she was criticized for on-screen family abuse and physical assault on her ex-fiance Dennis McKinley.

She joins Gisele Bryant, Candice Dillard-Bassett, Heather Gay, Whitney Rose, Leah McSweeney, Alexia Nepaul and Marysol Patton. The ladies are due to start filming on July 18 in Thailand.
