Porsha Stewart Thought The "Underground Railroad" Was A Real Train

l had to laugh, but I could not believe Porcha Stewart thought the "Underground Roalroad" was in fact - a real train.  "She got to be kidding me!"  I wonder what the other housewives thought about it?  Porsha Stewart had her Jessica Simpson chicken of the sea moment on the Dec. 22 episode of (RHOA) The Real Housewives of Atlanta. But her lapse had much more historical context than any fish-or-fowl mix up.  The 32-year-old visited a landmark church with holes in the floor, which were used for ventilation on the Underground Railroad (as led by Harriet Tubman) during the pre-Civil War era. The group's tour guide said they still don't know how groups of escaped slaves managed to get in and out from the crawl space. Porcha, whose great grandfather was civil rights leader, Hosea Williams, quickly piped in with her thoughts on the matter.

"Well, there has to be an opening for a railroad at some point," she said. "Because some body's driving the train. It's not electric like what we have now."

The other (RHOA) looked on in shock and irritation as their newly-single pal continued to talk about the historical system as if it was actually working railroad.

"Really? Like you really thought it was an actual train that took them through?" Cynthia Bailey said in her side interview.

Former pageant queen -- and Porcha Stewart's biggest nemesis -- Kenya Moore found it to be more offensive than shocking.

"It's almost hurtful to me to watch her be so dumb,"  Kenya Moore said in her private interview.  Naturally, sassy Ne Ne Leakes had some thoughts of her own on Porcha's flub.

"Ding dong! He's not talking about put baby sis on the train or on the damn public bus," she exclaimed.   Porcha has not yet commented on her on-air faux paux, but her onscreen nemesis, Kenya Moore, took to Twitter to continue discussing the topic.

"When her grandfather fought 4 civil rights that she bragged about, to not know that there wasn't a literal train! #freedomwasnotfree #RHOA," she wrote.

I'm still laughing about this - as of today.  How can anyone be that stupid? I guess history wasn't Porcha's subject.

  1. I can understand why Ne Ne and Kendra is going off on Porcha. I know she was not good in history to think that the Underground Railroad was a real railroad.


As Always, Open Discussion

If anyone out there in cyberspace - who followed and know the complete history (from 'almost' day one) of Jon and Kate Gosselin -- this blog is for those who want to discuss and show their support for Jon (even if everyone thinks he is a "douche-bag" he's still the father of the Gosselin 8. Jon has made mistakes in his past. He has apologized for those mistakes and to everyone through the media and to Kate - even if she wouldn't let him apologize to her face to face, Jon has apologized to Kate (more than I can say for Kate, "She has not apologized to Jon or the public yet.") No matter what you think of Jon, I support him as a person and the father of the Gosselin 8 and for all he's been through, especially with his 10 year marriage to Kate Gosselin. If you're not a supporter of Jon, that is your decision, do not attack any of my posters or me (T) on this blog or demand anything from my posters or me (T) that justifies our support for Jon. If any attacks or demands are made against my posters or me (T), you will be deleted from this blog. It is our right to support Jon and our freedom to express our opinions about Jon. If you don't like it -- that's too bad!
