Porsha Williams “re-engaged” to Dennis McKinley after he cheated on her while she was pregnant

In the current episodes of “Real Housewives of Atlanta” taped over the summer, Porsha Williams is struggling with the revelation that her fiancé Dennis McKinley had cheated on her while she was pregnant with their daughter. 

But fast-forward four months and she informed Andy Cohen on his late-night Bravo talk show “Watch What Happens Live” Sunday night that she and McKinley were “re-engaged” and ready to get married.

Williams, whose eight-month old daughter with McKinley is Pilar Jhena, said the ring is the same. For a time, they were separated and she had given back his engagement ring. 

For Williams, regaining trust will take time, she told Cohen. 

“We’re working on our family,” Williams said. “I love him and he loves me and we’re doing what’s best for our family. That’s really all you can do.”

She said she expects the wedding to be next year. If so, Bravo will likely create a spin-off series out of it and the paycheck will probably help cover the cost of said wedding. 

“Real Housewives of Atlanta” recently wrapped shooting season 12 so whether her reconciliation with McKinley occurs on screen or not is unclear.
