‘Don’t Run Up Smiling When I See You’: Porsha Williams Hits Back at Loni Love for ‘Trying to Get That Reality Show’ Dig

Porsha Williams, the reality star from “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” feathers were ruffled by “The Real” host and comic Loni Love. 

Williams posted and later deleted a video of Love after “The Real” hosts discussed her relationship with fiancé Dennis McKinley.

In the clip, host Adrienne Bailon said of the pair’s relationship: “I couldn’t do it, but I’m not going to judge somebody else for the way they choose to live their life or the decisions she’s going to make.” 

Love then followed Bailon’s comment by saying, “Let me tell y’all something, Porsha trying to get that reality show,” which sent the audience into applause. 

Williams, who is on a reality show already and even had her very own baby special “Porsha’s Having a Baby” wrote on Instagram, “B– F– you! #Fakea–, don’t run up smiling when I see you!” 

Love then tried to defuse the dust-up by writing, “Porsha, I didn’t say anything bad, and you know it. It was a light, hearted comment. I hope you get your show! #comic.” 

Tamar Braxton, a former “The Real” host and reality star from “Braxton Family Values,” got in on the drama by adding a eye emoji comment on The Shade Room. 

Fans of course chimed in on Williams and Love’s exchange as well as Braxton’s response.

“Loni throws a lot of shade and backpedals and calls it love 😂.”

Some fans took up for Braxton keeping up with the shade-fest.  


“Stand your ground, Tamar 😩.”

McKinley and Williams called it quits in late June after rumors swirled that McKinley cheated on Williams with another woman.

On the Nov. 10 episode, Williams confirmed that McKinley supposedly admitted he slept with another woman while she was pregnant with their daughter, Pilar Jhena’ who was born in March. 

During her sit-down with co-stars Cynthia Bailey and Kandi Buruss, Williams revealed that she and McKinley manages to co-parent while living in separate homes.  

“If I have to sacrifice my comfort level for [Pilar and McKinley] to have a good relationship, that’s what I gotta do,” she said. “I said, ‘If he gives the ring back and we get back together …”

“Give it back?” Bailey exclaimed.

“You gave the ring back?” echoed Burruss.

“No, he asked for it back,” Williams shared with an astonished Bailey and Burruss. “I didn’t think he was gon’ ask. Like, who does that?”

While McKinley and Williams split in June, they resumed their engagement in August.

Williams has been seen sporting her ring and in a Nov. 11 Instagram post showcased that she, McKinley, and their daughter PJ are all together again. 

“Swipe Everything I’ve prayed for! 😂My babies are so cute to watch in the morning! ❤️❤️😩 @pilarjhena & Daddy #RiseAndShine #TheMckinleys #ReadyForTheDay #DaddysGirl #Family1st,” read a caption of a video that saw McKinley dressing PJ for the day.
