When this season of the Real Housewives of Atlanta first started to air I couldn’t stand Ms. Porsha Stewart. She came off as a ditz and to be honest not even a funny likeable ditz, she was BORING. I couldn’t believe someone with an actual legacy would do a reality show. It also surprised me that she seemed for unlearned, I mean it seemed like she hadn’t read or travelled or lived really. The words she mangled, “perturd” comes to mind, weren’t even funny.
About two weeks ago I started to actually feel sorry for her. She suffered from a “too busy being pretty syndrome.” It seemed she lacked not only direction in her life, but also a bankable or buildable skill set. While everyone else was going to school, working and or hustling she was too busy enjoying the perks of being pretty and bubbly and that’s not a bad thing if you also build on your talent or interests. People around her might have pumped her up and soothed her with the promise of marrying a man with prestige.
She probably thought the way to keep him was to submit to him and keep him happy. This philosophy neglects our own happiness. I am a traditional woman and the bible does say that wives should submit to their husbands, but it also says that husbands should submit to their wives. This latter is the point Porscha missed.
I don’t know her, duh, but she seemed so lost and grasping for her own identity. It almost seemed that she didn’t know what she liked or disliked. Her identity does not seem to be based on who she is and what she can do, but rather the things and people around her. I think she came on the show to find something to do, to find an identity.
What makes Porscha’s situation even sadder it that the ladies tried to tell her to find her voice and she went so hard for her dad, excuse me, husband. Then the dirt bag took her dream in not allowing her to return to the show then filed for divorce papers according to rumors AND did so without telling Porsha, blind sighting her and make her look like a dang fool.
Now I’m rooting for Porsha, I hope she has had her fill of humble pie. (Remember she was like maybe if you blah, blah, blah you’d get a husband and she said that was Kenya Moore old and irrelevant?) Actually, I wouldn’t mind if she returned to the show to show her progress or maybe tell the world who she is.
