Porsha Williams’ fiancé Dennis McKinley claimed that he cheated on her while she was pregnant because of the Real Housewives of Atlanta star’s postpartum depression. The couple had an intense therapy session on the December 15 episode because of Dennis’ infidelity. They have since reconciled.
“We had a rough pregnancy, all the way from start to finish,” Dennis, 43, told Porsha, 38, during couple’s therapy. “Sex during pregnancy, it’s nothing what a man wants to do.”
He continued, “And after PJ got here, postpartum was very real. We cried together like every night. That’s not a good enough why, but that’s the why I cheated.”
“It was a poor decision and it was a selfish decision,” Dennis added. “I made a mistake, I cheated.”
Porsha shot back, “A mistake, to me, is taking the wrong exit. You don’t make a mistake and set up with someone and cheat. That’s not where he needs to be in order for me to heal and move forward. He needs to be in a place in my eyes where he’s taking full accountability for his actions, period. No matter how it looks and feels. It insults me when he says mistake.”
The mom-of-one found out that Dennis cheated on her during her pregnancy when their daughter was 3 months old. “All the rough stuff that he said that I went through, he was literally by my side. And that’s one of the things that was really difficult,” Porsha told their therapist. “I’m terribly disappointed and I’m hurt,” she said.
“Our daughter is growing up by leaps and bounds every single day. If we’re going to be together for her, we’re going to have to start working on it,” the RHOA star told Dennis. “If you’re going to live how you want to live because that’s just what your loins want, we can move on with our co-parent life. But if you are really trying to make a commitment over here, that’s what I want to know from your heart.”
Dennis responded, “I want us to be together and that is not a co-parent situation. I apologize again. I hope we can get to a place where we start to communicate more and she can give me another chance.”
Porsha and Dennis split up in June following his infidelity and he asked for her engagement ring back. The couple then reconciled in August. In December, Porsha announced that they are officially re-engaged and planning to get married in 2020.
