His wife Falynn Guobadia, was a minor player season 13 of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta”

“The Real Housewives of Atlanta” cast member Porsha Williams announced on Instagram Monday night that she was dating Simon Guobadia, the ex-husband of Falynn Guobadia, who showed up a couple of times season 13 on the Bravo reality show.

Williams, to her 6.3 million Instagram followers, said they only began dating a month ago but made it sound like they are already committed for life.

“We are crazy in love,” she wrote. “I know it’s fast, but we are living life each day to its fullest... He makes me so happy, and to me, that is what matters most.”

Williams added: “It’s truly a beautiful moment in my life & we cannot wait to spend the rest of our lives together.”

Guobadia, on his own Instagram, said they were technically engaged already.

“Getting married again was never a question in my mind, but when,” he said. “Did not expect to be blessed with a mate so soon.” He added: “I asked her to marry me because we checked ALL of each other’s boxes, and then some.”

The “Dish Nation” host also addressed the issue of “optics” given that Guobadia had just filed for divorce from Falynn Guobadia in January.

“I had nothing to do with their divorce filing,” Williams wrote. “That’s between the two of them.”

According to People magazine, the divorce has not yet been finalized but the Guobadias have reached a settlement agreement.

She made the announcement just a day after the final reunion episode of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” where she sort of but didn’t really confirm that she had slept with a male stripper last October after Cynthia Bailey’s bachelorette party. She said she was single at the time and proud of displaying her sexuality.

She broke up with her former fiancé Dennis McKinley during the pandemic. He cheated on her while she was pregnant with their child, and she had a hard time forgiving him.

On Sunday, in a separate post, she is seen with a ring on her left finger, posing with Guobadia and McKinley.

She noted in her Instagram post that “Simon and Dennis are committed to being respectful and supportive of my happiness in this situation, as well as being the best co-parents they can be to baby PJ. Two black men stepping up and being amazing people — let’s praise them!”

Williams also made it clear she is not friends with Guobadia’s ex-wife. “Our relationship is a positive, loving step forward in everybody’s lives,” she wrote.

The social activist was married to former NFL player Kordell Stewart from 2011 to 2013.

According to his Linkedin page, Guobadia is CEO of Simcol Petroleum Limited Company.

Falynn Guobadia in April made the breakup with her husband official on Instagram after two years of marriage.
