Porsha Williams Scores Permanent Co-Hosting Gig On Dish Nation

Don’t call it a comeback! Porsha Williams has landed a new gig as the permanent co-host of the syndicated entertainment television show, Dish Nation.

Based in Atlanta alongside the “Rickey Smiley Morning Show” team, “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star will lend her insider expertise as she dishes on the latest breaking celebrity news and gossip.

“On my very first day in the Atlanta studios of ‘Dish Nation’ I immediately felt a natural chemistry with the team,” Williams said in a statement. “Rickey Smiley is an amazing comic and I am thrilled to learn and grow with one of the best morning hosts in the country.”

Smiley also expressed his excitement for Williams’ contribution during a recent appearance on My Fox Atlanta’s “Good Day Atlanta.”

“A lot of things that people don’t know is that she is hilarious and she’s not uptight,” he revealed. “She’s really into making fun of herself, like we all do. And she smells good. She wears Bond 9 and Tom Ford perfume every day. So I had to step my cologne game up and stop wearing Lagerfeld, Perry Ellis, and Bruit.”
