Porsha Williams Stands Up For Her Fiance After RHOA Co-Stars Expose His Shady Past!

Most of the Real Housewives of Atlanta stars believe Porsha Williams’ fiance Dennis McKinley is a huge playboy, but apparently, the woman couldn’t care less! In fact, the reality TV star made sure to defend the man against all of those who doubt he’s good for her.

For Porsha, the past doesn’t seem to matter!

The RHOA star thinks that whether Dennis had many relationships or not before committing to her, it is not important!

That being said, she had quite the clap back for all those, and that includes Kandi Burruss, who started the rumors Dennis is a player in the first place!

During an interview for E! News’ Daily Pop, Porsha argued: ‘Allegations are allegations. People sit around what they think they know, or whatever about the past, everybody has a past. He’s not gonna sit up and deny everything word for word. He’s a businessman, he’s out making money somewhere.’

As fans remember, Kandi and her pals, Jami and Carmon were the ones to bring up Dennis’ past during the latest episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta.

Apparently, Porsha’s fiance might have dated more than just one woman at a time over the years.

Furthermore, it was even suggested that he and Porsha actually met while he was in another relationship and he cheated on that girlfriend with her!

Other rumors say he would gift his past flings expensive Rolex watches and even get their names tattooed on him!

Sure enough, Porsha’s name is now inked on his thigh, and the woman also owes a watch from that brand!

Still, despite all the allegations, Porsha has been over the moon since getting pregnant with Dennis and also getting engaged back on October 1!

Is it really a perfect modern fairytale and people are just jealous of their happiness or should Porsha be worried he’ll cheat again?

Dodgers’ Machado stands out for lack of hustle again

Manny Machado's lack of hustle is starting to stand out more than his offense this postseason. The star shortstop had a little too much self-confidence in the sixth inning Friday night when he thought he homered for the Los Angeles Dodgers during Game 3 of the World Series against the Boston Red Sox. Instead, Machado ended up admiring what turned out to be a 368-foot single as it bounced off the wall in left field.

A Mother of the Movement Bares Her Soul and Stands Her Ground

Lucy McBath suffered a string of miscarriages so, there was a time when she grappled with the fear that she might never be a mother. But she never in her darkest dreams imagined becoming a mother who would have to bury her only son.

There are somewhere between 600,000 and 1,000,000 books published worldwide each year, depending on whose statistics you trust. It’s a big number, so standing out is tough. But McBath’s Standing Our Ground does.

Part memoir, part history lesson, it is also, as its book jacket attests, “a faith-based exploration of how the nation’s gun laws put a deadly target on American lives,” and African American males lives, especially. “Lucy has become the David to the gun lobby’s Goliath, proving that when gun violence survivors and mothers speak out, we can and will win,” says Shannon Watts, founder of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America.

Few are better positioned to expound on these matters. McBath is a woman deeply grounded in her Christian faith. It is how she was raised, and she has nurtured the seed her parents planted through many a trial, disappointment, and devastation, including the 2012 murder of her teenage son.

Jordan Davis


When his killer invoked Florida’s controversial Stand Your Ground law as a defense, McBath was propelled into a passionate fight for gun control and justice, not merely for her own child, but for all. She retired from a 30-year career with Delta Airlines to become the national spokesperson for both Everytown for Gun Safety and Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America. Unwittingly, she also became one of the so-called Mothers of the Movement, along with eight other black women most of whom lost their sons to senseless and unjustifiable force at the hands of police. Sybrina Fulton, the mother of Trayvon Martin, was the only other mother who lost her son to a self-professed vigilante in the state of Florida. Her son’s murderer succeeded in using the Stand Your Ground law to gain an acquittal. McBath’s son’s killer is now serving a life sentence in jail.

A Bright Future Ends on Black Friday

It was the day after Thanksgiving 2012: Black Friday. Jordan Davis, 17, sat in the rear of his friend Tommie Stornes’ red Dodge Durango with two other friends parked in front of a gas station convenience store. Michael Dunn, who was white, pulled into the space alongside them and waited while his girlfriend went into the store.

After telling the young men to turn down their hip-hop music and a brief exchange of words, Dunn grabbed a gun from the glovebox of his own car and opened fire on the unarmed teens inside the Durango.

Terrified, Stornes threw the car into reverse, trying to escape the hail of bullets. As they sped away, Dunn exited his car and continued to aim and shoot. Three of the teens survived that day; young Jordan Davis, shot several times, died in his best friend’s arms.

It is not surprising that McBath’s book, written with collaborator Rosemarie Robotham, is so moving. The surprise is that it is so uplifting. But if you know Lucia McBath (full disclosure: I do), you know that’s who she is.

Now running for Congress from the state of Georgia, McBath has seized every opportunity to educate the public, call out the gun lobby for the blood on their hands, and change the gun laws to preserve lives. She has even faced down the provocative issue of anti-choice-pro-gun evangelicals as a featured subject in the award-winning documentary, The Armor of Light. McBath, the former flight attendant, has shied away from nothing that she sees as her divine calling to reduce gun violence in this country. Hillary Clinton, who has endorsed McBath as a congressional candidate, also endorses her book, saying, “Lucy, in the face of tragedy, turned her sorrow into a strategy, and her mourning into a movement.”

As McBath notes repeatedly in the book, she’s not trying to be a hero. She simply sees no other choice. “When tragedy arrived at my door in a sudden senseless burst of gunfire, I thought I had failed my child,” McBath writes movingly in her book’s introduction. “I believed my life was over. And perhaps it was. But a new life opened up before me and there was nothing else for me to do but claim it.

“In telling my story—and honoring the life of the child God entrusted to me—I am claiming it still.” It’s how she loves Jordan now.
