The news comes just weeks after Williams announced her return to “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” for its upcoming 16th season after spending two years off of the show. According to People, the reason for the couple’s separation is an “ongoing matter” and is “unrelated to recent allegations involving Simon’s past.” As the outlet reported, rumors about Guobadia have circulated online, including citizenship

As theGrio previously reported, the pairing was a whirlwind romance born from “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.” Williams met her husband during her last season on the series before her hiatus, when his ex-wife, Falynn Guobadia, was also starring in the series and married to him at the time of filming.

While their engagement was announced in May 2021, they tied the knot in November 2022. Their relationship and her family’s reaction to it was captured on Williams’ spin-off series, “Porsha Family Matters,” which aired winter 2021-2022. Williams also appeared on the third season of the “Real Housewives” mash-up series, “The Real Housewives: Ultimate Girls Trip,” where she also broke down some of the specifics of her relationship.
