Amid Backlash, Andy Cohen Explains Porsha Williams’ RHOA Demotion
By: Amanda Anderson-Niles
RHOA star Porsha Williams’ demotion shocked a lot of fans of the hit reality show, but no one was more shocked than Porsha herself.
In a statement, the reality star revealed she was blindsided by the network choosing to take her peach and give it to Claudia Jordan, and the change has been getting lots of backlash and criticism from Porsha’s supporters.
Amid the backlash, Andy Cohen is now explaining why the Porsha was demoted. He says:
“It had nothing to do with anything that happened at the reunion last season. Really, it was about the amount of story we got from Porsha this season. We went into it assuming she would be a full Housewife, holding a peach. We just haven’t gotten enough to merit that. She’s going to be in it a lot. We love her. I hope she’ll be on Bravo endlessly.”
Interestingly enough, Porsha hinted in her statement that she believed she was demoted because she wasn’t deemed interesting enough this season.
According to sources, Claudia was so “turnt up” and involved in Kenya’s antics that producers said giving her peach was a no brainer.
