On the season premiere of “RHOA”, Burruss has lunch with Cynthia Bailey and Eva Marcille at her restaurant Old Lady Gang. While having lunch a woman named Sincerely Ward approaches their table.
Ward was rumored to be the mistress of Williams’ fiancé, Dennis McKinley. She told the ladies that the rumors weren’t true, and she never slept with McKinley. She also asked them to tell Williams what she said.
Later in the episode, Kenya Moore pulls Williams aside to tell her about the alleged mistress talking to the ladies.
Williams briefly questions why Ward appeared at Burruss’ restaurant during filming. She was seeming to believe Burruss somehow set it up and asked Ward to come that day.
Following the show, many fans had the same question and questioned whether Burruss was messy behind the scenes. One tweet read, “Sure did! RT @Rhomie_xOx: This lady coming to clear her name looked staged @Kandi.”
Burruss quickly shut down the fan, “blame production. don’t blame me… I had absolutely nothing to do with that!”

One fan backed up Burruss writing, “Production never catches heat. It is always the cast. They are just told most of the time to show up.”
A suspicious fan said “I’m glad Porsha seen right through that set up straight away. Watching Kandi and Cyinthia play innocent hurt my ears and eyes” and another wrote “Obvious set up like girl everyone know Kandi has had issues with porsha and Kandi don’t drink nobody would walk up like that nahhh.” One viewer believes, “Kandi is so petty. Porsha did not attend Kandi’s events because she was set up last time and Kandi filmed scenes with Jamie.”
Another responded, “They love trying to set you up for the fallout… ???better stop NEXT CHECK IN BRAINSTORM MODE… ….and go.” Someone pointed out “That’s the only logical explanation Kandi… she already had a mic on so you know it was production.”
Williams first began dating McKinley back in June 2018. A couple of months after they announced they were together, Porsha revealed she was pregnant with her first child. She and Dennis would eventually get engaged in September and welcomed daughter, Pilar, in March.
She would call off their engagement in June but reconciled months later. They were even seen in Las Vegas getting hot and heavy, grinding on each other at the club.
In the Vegas photos, McKinley and Williams were clearly comfortable with each other, with him placing his arm around her tightly. She captioned the post, “Adults only Viva Las Vegas Bikini: @gsaintsgirls#ParentsNightOut #PoolParty#LoversLane.”
After the premiere episode, Williams focused on the positive and not the alleged cheating. She shared personal photos with her baby PJ from behind the scenes.
She captioned her photo, “My baby & me! “Pj Holiday Edition” ❤️ @pilarjhena Hair: @gonakedhair” A fan commented, “I love your new bond with Kenya!❤️ Such a better message to bring out there instead of the fights. And your girls are gorgeous.”
