Porsha Williams was demoted to a part time ‘Housewife’ this season on “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.” However, she seems to still appear on the show a lot, way too often for someone who yanked a fellow cast member to the floor by the roots during last season’s reunion show. She is now a fixture on the Rickey Smiley radio show, and has been working overtime to gain relevance any way that she can. Her latest show biz pursuit is to land a spot on “Dancing With the Stars,” following in the epic hoof prints of the only other Atlanta cast member who can stand to be in her presence, Nene Leakes.
Porsha and Rickey have composed an inspiring audition video, proposing her services in ways never offered before, here or abroad. I can’t tell if the video began seriously and ended as a joke, or was a failed attempt at comedy to begin with, but the feel-up fest did reveal the probable reason for Porsha’s apparent station popularity. My guess is that a stint with DWTS would satisfy Porsha’s ongoing pursuit of fame, and give Dish Nation’s Rickey and friends lots to banter about on Tuesdays.
Let’s get real here. Unless I am forgetting someone, there have been four ‘Real Housewives’ cast on DWTS. Joanna Krupa (gorgeous supermodel) and Lisa Rinna (a likable soap star hustler) were on seasons prior to their signing with Bravo. The only two ‘Housewives’ cast on the show while active with Bravo were Lisa Vanderpump and Nene Leakes. Lisa has been a fan favorite since “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” began, and Nene is a flamboyant performer, and satisfies the costume department’s desire to dress a drag queen. A porn-esque styled character with limited brain power (OK… Pamela Anderson, maybe) has never been done before…could the show really be getting that desperate?
“Dancing With the Stars” has generally avoided the female ghetto dynamic, with Snooki Polizzi being the one ‘My Fair Lady’ reach into that demographic. I have watched “Dancing With the Stars” since the beginning and sincerely hope that they resist venturing to the trashy and dumb side, and instead shoot for classy and intelligent. Maybe Claudia Jordan could be convinced to put those dancin’ shoes on!
