As the ladies of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” descended into Miami over the weekend to support NeNe Leakes, some of the stars also took time to celebrate Porsha Williams’ birthday.
Leakes joined pal Marlo Hampton to give Williams a special dinner for her 37th birthday, which came after housewives Cynthia Baliey, Kandi Burruss and Eva Marcille arrived to see Leakes’ comedy show and the grand opening of the Miami location of her women’s clothing store Swagg Boutique.
“🤸🏾♀️Our very own celebration. Happy Birthday to [me] & Congrats to @neneleakes on Swaggalicious Miami 🔥 Thank you @marlohampton for this Delicious surprise! 💋#BigSisLilSis #Miami,” Williams captioned her IG post, which included a shoutout to Leakes.
The OG ATL ‘wife along with pal Hampton and other guests of Williams’ serenaded the newly red-haired beauty with Stevie Wonder’s “Happy Birthday” as she prepared to blow out the candle on two enormous slices of cake — including a red velvet piece. Other tasty sweets on the table included a chocolate cake, donuts, a cupcake and an ice cream cone.
The upbeat celebration was likely a needed one for Leakes. Aside from aggressively promoting her store opening over the weekend, the former “Glee” star has been by her husband’s side in Atlanta as he battles cancer.
Leakes initially hinted at Gregg Leakes’ health issues in May, when she had to cancel a series of comedy shows after he spent 15 days in the hospital. Leakes came clean about his fight in June and later confirmed that it had been removed. More recently, the duo was mulling whether or not to pursue chemotherapy or go the homeopathic route.
“Gregg says that he doesn’t know how he feels about chemo and he does not know enough about holistic [medicine],” Leakes said on Instagram Live. “So many people are reaching out to us about holistic but you just saying stuff. What you really know?”
