Porsha shocked Real Housewives of Atlanta fans when she revealed she was dating her RHOA costar, Falynn Guobadia’s ex-husband, Simon Guobadia.
While RHOA viewers know plenty about Porsha, they’re wondering who her new man Simon is and what he does.
When Simon was introduced on RHOA Season 13, he was still happily married to Falynn. Despite their 25-year age gap, the couple expressed they were very happy together.
However, between then and now, Falynn and Simon filed for divorce and Simon began dating Porsha.
Porsha revealed the relationship Monday and admitted that she and Simon have only been dating for a month, and she and Falynn are no longer friends.

We have done the individual work to sustain a healthy relationship, and I stand next to her, proud that we found each other. What we have is what we wish every single one of you out there – happiness. So when I asked…she said yes. That is ALL that mattered. Thank you again for your love and support. Truly appreciated,” he concluded.
