“Goodbyes are never easy, and this one is especially hard. For the past eight years, I’ve worked on one of the most fun, collaborative, exciting, and best-produced shows on television,” wrote Porsha.

“But as I continuously start new chapters in my life, it means I have to close others. So sadly, August 27th will be my last day at Dish Nation.”

The newly engaged reality TV personality continued, “Since 2013, everybody at Dish has been like family to me. There’s a lot of people I’ve met along this journey that I am incredibly thankful for. Whether it was on-air or behind the scenes, they’ve endlessly supported my career and more importantly, my happiness.”
