Remember when Real Housewives of Atlanta star, Porsha Williams thought that the underground railroad was an actual train underground? Well now the reality star is defending her seemingly ignorant comment.
During an interview with Radar Online, Williams told the news outlet that she simply had a brain lapse. “I’ve definitely had my little airy moments throughout the season and people giggled about them, I giggled about them. But this was something that’s close to my heart,” she said.
“Out of respect for those people of the struggle, I wanted to make sure I went back so that whenever I have the opportunity to speak again, I speak intelligently and I don’t misrepresent the legacy of my family or those people who paved the way for us,” she said.
Porsha, who takes pride in that her grandfather, Hosea Williams was a civil rights leader, went on to say that the entire incident was a learning experience. “The thing about life is you need to grow to learn from your experiences,” Stewart said. “You need to grow from it and learn and that’s just what I did.”
During a recent episode on the hit Bravo show, the girls too a trip to Savannah, Ga where they visited one of the safe houses used by slaves to escape to free states. When the guide showed the small ventilation holes in the ground, the reality star replied, “Well, there has to be an opening for the railroad at some point, because somebody is driving the train.”
