Porsha Williams has a perfectly good reason for why she was arrested this time!
Is it fair to say that 2014 was kind of rough for the “Real Housewives of Atlanta”? That’s an accurate assessment, right? Porsha drew sighs of sympathy (and exasperation) when she was clapped in some handcuffs earlier this week. She wasn’t behind bars for long as she posted bail just in time to ring in the New Year!
It was reported that she was snagged by cops during a traffic stop for speeding and driving on a suspended license. It was bad look for Porsha considering that this was the second time in less than a year that she’d been arrested.
Unlike last time, she wasn’t popped for yanking a co-star by her roots; it was for a family emergency, and she’s accepting full responsibility for her mistakes.
“I was headed to visit my grandfather who is very ill with cancer in the hospital, and I was pulled over. I was wrong for speeding absolutely and apologize for putting anyone at risk,” she said in a statement.
“I tried to explain the situation to the officer and show him that all my paperwork was in order, but he refused,” Porsha continued. “Handcuffs are not comfortable or a good look for anyone. I was released, I have my license, my car, and my freedom.”
The masses still haven’t seen her latest mug shot, but we’re sure it was probably just as fierce as the first one.
