Porsha Williams Guobadia Relaxes In Bathing Suit Before RHOA Return

Porsha is coming back to Atlanta!

It's official! Porsha Williams Guobadia is returning to The Real Housewives of Atlanta—and fans are thrilled. Williams, 42, has made sure to get plenty of rest and relaxation before the show starts production, sharing pictures of herself looking serene and happy in a one piece swimsuit by the water. "Serenity R&R," she captioned the post. "Beautiful!" a fan commented. Guobadia is excited to return to the show that made her a household name. "I'm incredibly thankful for the vision and faith NBCUniversal has put in me to be a larger part of their family," she said in a statement. "I'm looking forward to being back on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, and showing the world my new world!" Here's how the reality star lives her best life.


Treadmill In the Bedroom


Guobadia has a treadmill in her bedroom so she can workout as soon as she wakes up. "Currently, my schedule is so packed I had no choice but to put my treadmill in my bedroom," she told Glamour South Africa. "So now I see it when I wake up, and I get right into doing about forty minutes on an incline at a 4.0 pace. Then in the afternoon, if I have time, I work out with a trainer virtually. No matter what though, I make sure I'm on the treadmill at least four days a week and I get with a trainer once a week. Whether it's directly with a trainer or just at a gym, boxing is such a great way to get into shape. I've done it in the past and absolutely loved it."


Intermittent Fasting

Guobadia practices intermittent fasting (limiting her eating window to six hours) and enjoys a balanced diet. "As for my diet, I really am not on anything strict to be honest. I just do what makes sense," she told Glamour South Africa. "If I'm craving a hamburger, I'll have a hamburger. But then the next day I'll make sure that I have a salad, a lot of water, and a good mix of vegetables. Same goes for something like pizza, if I want it I'll have it, but then the next day I'll make sure it is filled with healthy habits."


Social Media Trolls


Guobadia is prepared for the challenges of being on TV again, especially social media trolls who hurt her in the past. "I'm not going to lie, their words cut me deep," she told Women's Health. "The negative comments would stay with me long after I stopped scrolling. They made me realize my insecurities were now being magnified on a TV screen for millions of strangers to judge. At one point, I even contemplated leaving the show. But Nene [Leakes] and Cynthia [Bailey], my other cast mates on the show, talked me out of it after I broke down to them crying. They validated my feelings and reassured me that everyone goes through a similar phase during their first season on the show, and that I was indeed a value to RHOA."


Bye, Ashy

Guobadia makes a point of keeping her skin soft and moisturized—and says her husband Simon does, too. "When I first met him, he would really lather up his body and make sure his skin was nice and glistening," she told BET. "I was like, 'Babe, you're feeling good.' He'd respond, "I'm on alert because I remember you told somebody,' Bye ashy' once. He was scared for me ever to see him ashy. He said, 'I don't want you judging me.' He is very much into his skin. I have gone on Amazon and bought him his own Nivea so he does not have to take mine."


Mental Health Awareness

Guobadia knows how stressful filming RHOA can be, and knows how to protect her peace. "Mental health is incredibly important, and I prioritize mine by protecting my space," she told Glamour South Africa. "When I'm not filming, I want no drama at all. Anybody that is upsetting my spirit and peace I separate myself from immediately. I also say 'No' a lot, as a way to put myself first. I probably say 'No' to things more than I say 'Yes.' Yoga is also beneficial and gives me some time to sneak away and be with myself. I really value my reflection and quiet time."
