Porsha Williams and Dennis McKinley’s relationship may have started with a bunch of hurdles, but Sunday’s episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta showed that they were in it for the long haul.
Dennis had been dropping hints about a proposal to Williams for quite some time, so she kept getting her hopes up only to be let down.
Porsha and Dennis went out for dinner and drinks with Shamari and Ronnie DeVoe. That’s when Dennis opened up to Ronnie about his plans.
“Oh, you’re gonna propose on Friday?!” Ronnie whispered in excitement. “Damn, son! You got it all mapped out?”
“I got it mapped out. She don’t know,” Dennis replied before confirming that his romantic plans involved a helicopter ride.
Thankfully, Lauren, Porsha’s sister was in the know from the get-go, so she was on hand to help out in any way she could.
That meant keeping up the ruse that Porsha was on her way to a charity event.
“For real, I’m legit scared,” Porsha said of getting on a helicopter.
“I actually texted [Dennis] the other day, and I was like, ‘I don’t think I even wanna do the thing. Just cancel it. Let’s just do something else.’ And he sounded so disappointed that we weren’t gonna go. So I was like, ‘Okay, you know what? Fine. We’ll go.'”
When the day arrived, Porsha and Dennis managed to get in and out of the helicopter without any issues.
That was a huge positive given how scared Porsha was. Williams was concerned because there were no other people around.
“They’re probably here already,” Dennis replied. “They can only fit one couple at a time.” Porsha totally bought it.
“I’m glad I got my makeup done!” Porsha said as the duo walked into the high-class building.
In a truly romantic moment, Porsha realized her favorite song was playing. When the pair got to the room, there were flowers, photographers and even the singer of her favorite song.
“Would you like to be Mrs. McKinley?” Dennis said as he got down on one knee. Porsha gleefully accepted.
“You don’t understand how many times we have sung this song in the car to each other,” Porsha said in a confessional.
“I have my parts, he has his parts, and Lil’ Mo is here singing it to us! I’ve dreamed about how he was gonna propose. I thought he was gonna propose in Miami, I thought he was gonna propose here, I thought he was gonna propose there.”
“But for him to do it like this with the helicopter and Lil’ Mo and all the flowers and — can we talk about the ring? He did that! Thank you, boo!”
“Just thinking about how alone I was at first, and now,” Porsha said as she fought back tears.
“No one will ever understand what it means for me to have gone through a miscarriage before, all by myself, without the person who made that child with me as my support, to now be pregnant and have the man who is the father of my child be so loving, so thoughtful. It means the world to me.”
Elsewhere on this romantic installment:
– Kand and Todd continued their quest to have another child. Todd was still on the fence of taking the surrogacy route, but started to question everything when they met Shandi, a potential person who could carry their child.
– Eva tried to find the perfect dress for her upcoming wedding, but she was shocked to learn the one she had her eye on could not be made in time.
– Nene and Gregg couldn’t stop arguing, and Nene started to wonder whether their relationship was, once again, about to come to an end.
