Porsha Williams on Joining ‘Celebrity Apprentice’: I Can’t Wait to Show Off My Business Side (VIDEO)


When one thinks of Porsha Williams, “business acumen” isn’t exactly a phrase that immediately comes to mind. But now that she’s joining the Celebrity Apprentice Season 8 cast, Porsha is eager for people to see a different side of her.

It was announced yesterday, January 28, that Porsha will be a part of the latest installment of the reality competition show alongside Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Kyle Richards, Boy George, Laila Ali, Brooke Burke-Charvet, Eric Dickerson, Matt Iseman, Carrie Keagan, Lisa Leslie, Vince Neil, Chael Sonnen, Ricky Williams, and Carnie Wilson.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member is keenly aware of her reputation as a ditz — we all remember when she thought the Underground Railroad was an actual railroad — but she’s hoping to change people’s perception of her with the show.

“They let me sneak up in The Apprentice, honey. You know I’m about to show out!” Porsha told her Dish Nation family hours after the CA news broke. 

“I’m so excited, it’s a big opportunity,” she added.

“I would love to show off my business side. I’ve been in business for years and I’ve watched other episodes of how they strategize. It’s all for charity and I just think it’s going to be so wonderful.”

The 34-year-old does have her Go Naked hair line to speak of, as well as her own lingerie collection, so we’re curious to see what she brings to the boardroom.

Porsha will be the third RHoA cast member to do Celebrity Apprentice behind NeNe Leakes and Kenya Moore, but we don’t suggest she call on them for advice. NeNe left the competition after an intense beef with Star Jones, and Kenya is still fighting battles with people she made enemies out of while on the show.

Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 8 airs Sundays at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo.
