Porsha Williams and Simon Guobadia’s romance may have been a whirlwind, but there was drama from the start.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star revealed in May 2021 that she and Guobadia began dating one month before making their relationship Instagram official. In her post, she cleared the air about their timeline and denied she and Simon were together while he was married to her RHOA costar Falynn Guobadia. (Falynn announced in April 2021 that she and Simon had split after two years of marriage.)

“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,” Williams wrote via Instagram at the time. “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.”

That same month Williams and Simon also announced their engagement. The pair tied the knot in November 2022. In February 2024, news broke that Williams filed for divorce from Simon after 15 months of marriage.

Shortly after Williams announced she and Simon were seeing each other, Simon revealed that the pair were engaged.

“Getting married again was never a question in my mind, but when. Did not expect to be blessed with a mate so soon. The interesting thing about life is that it is an individual journey,” he wrote via Instagram at the time. “Porsha and I, with the support of our loved ones have chosen to travel together as one and spread love and positivity to our community which is in desperate need of positive and healthy images of the best versions of ourselves.”

Simon noted that both he and Williams have been through relationships that didn’t work out, but he was optimistic about their future. “I stand next to her, proud that we found each other,” he continued. “What we have is what we wish every single one of you out there – happiness. So when I asked … she said yes. That is ALL that mattered.”

November 2021

While appearing on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen, Williams opened up about connecting with Simon via DM following his divorce.

“I actually told him, ‘I’m sorry for your divorce,’ and all of that because I know what that feels like,” she recalled. “I know what it feels like to go through betrayal and hurt.”

As the couple planned their nuptials, Williams exclusively told Us Weekly that they wanted to have a ceremony in Atlanta and Nigeria.

“We ended up coming up with a wedding date,” she teased. “My grandmother is the one who actually set my wedding day. She, my mother and my aunt sat me down and she’s like, ‘This man has given you every intention. He put the ring on you. You’re dragging your feet.’ And now once we’ve settled down in the house, we have a date.”
