Porsha Williams engaged to Dennis McKinley

Originally posted Monday, October 1, 2018 by RODNEY HO/ on his AJC Radio & TV Talk blog

Porsha Williams, who recently announced her pregnancy, is now engaged to Dennis McKinley

So it’s a little backward but not uncommon. 

She broke the news to People magazine. Her rep said he planned this for two months, rented out a venue and took Porsha there via helicopter before proposing over the weekend.

She had previously told People that she had known him for years but only began dating him last year. 

Who is McKinley? There isn’t much out there about him. The public portion of his Facebook page says he is from Detroit, lives in Atlanta, studied business administration at Oakland University, studied economics at the University of Michigan and is a clerk at Queen Virgin Remy, a hair extension site. It also says he works at a place called MCK<3, which has a blank Facebook page and no evidence of any actual existence off Google

He calls himself a “serial entrepreneur” on his Instagram page. 

If a wedding is planned, it will likely be chronicled by “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.” (You saw what happened to Kenya Moore for not doing so.)
