Simon and Williams announced they were engaged in May after one a month of dating. Since then, Simon has accused Falynn of cheating on him with an Atlanta entrepreneur — a claim that man later denied on Instagram. In June, Falynn opened up for the first time about her split from Simon and his subsequent engagement to Williams, 40, on YouTuber Adam Newell’s Up and Adam!
Asked about Williams, Falynn insisted the Dish Nation host had no role in the breakup of her marriage. “No one has that power over my life, my husband’s life, and our marriage,” Falynn said. “Simon and I were the ones who were married to one another. We’re the ones who created a family together and built a life with one another. I blame the both of us. He is to blame, I am to blame, and that is all. Whatever came after that — not saying it was right, not saying it was wrong — but no, no one has that power.”

As a matter of fact, I remember receiving a phone call around 8 a.m. that morning when everything started making headlines and someone said to me, ‘Simon and Porsha, they’re engaged,’ and I remember arguing with them. I said, ‘No, my husband is a lot of things but he would never do that to me. That is just not who he is.’ ”
Still, Falynn told Newell that she wants the best for Simon, even if that means they’re not together. “I love Simon unconditionally and I just want him to be happy,” she shared. “I meant what I said when I took my vows and I meant what I said when told Simon I loved him unconditionally,” Falynn said. “If he’s happy, then I don’t care. I don’t care how… If my husband is happy, then okay. It hurts. It hurts like hell.”
Simon and Williams haven’t yet revealed when they will be tying the knot, but Williams did previously reveal that she’s planning not one, not two, but three separate wedding ceremonies for the occasion. “[Simon’s] African so we will have our native law and custom ceremony and a regular wedding, and then we’ll have another wedding at one of the houses that are out of the country,” Williams said. The reality star also said that Goubadia has let her take the reins on the planning their nuptials.
“He did say ‘Oh babe, it’s okay. Just do whatever you want. It’s your day,'” Williams told co-hosts Rickey Smiley and Sherri Shepherd. Posting the clip on Instagram, Williams gave a nod to the backlash she’s gotten over her whirlwind romance, writing in her caption that she’ll also be throwing another event around the same time: “a funeral for the haters.”
