If you’ve followed her story on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, you know that Porsha Williams (formally Porsha Stewart) is newly divorced.  I caught up with Porsha to get her thoughts on  moving forward as a single woman,  changing her name and her new ‘baby’.

S&LF:   Why did you decide to change your last name?
PW:        All the way up until the divorce signing, I had planned on keeping Stewart. But something came over me and as I was driving a way, I called my lawyer and asked that he change it back to Williams. I simply changed my mind, as we women often do. I am glad and proud to be back in the Williams family!

S&LF:   How do you feel about being single again?
PW:       I feel nervous, excited, hopeful and healed. The future is ahead of me and I intend to embrace it everyday

S&LF:   What can you do as a single woman that you could not do as a married woman?
PW:        Now that I am single, I can pour all the love and attention that I gave to my marriage into myself. It is important to truly love and value yourself as a woman. That’s where our strength truly lies

S&LF:   Are you excited or nervous about dating again?                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            PW:       Yes I am! My first date was on the Steve Harvey Show….that really pushed me back out there. I want to take my time and enjoy being courted. I was so nervous at first but, I am enjoying it now

S&LF:   How intense is your desire to become a mother?
PW:         I believe in family! So, yes I want to become a mother. But right now I need to focus on my hair business GONAKEDHAIR.COM… that’s my baby right now

S&LF:   Do you want to marry again?                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              PW:         I’m a hopeless romantic. I absolutely want to get married again. I trust God’s timing though
