porsha“Real Housewives of Atlanta’s (RHOA)” youngest reality show cast member, Porsha Williams (pictured) has just landed a sweet permanent gig as co-host of the syndicated pop culture show “Dish Nation.”

Williams, who has temporarily been subbing on the daily, zany, celeb gossip and humorous commentary nightly program,  joins the likes of drive-time co-host radio personalities Rickey Smiley, Gary With Da Tea and HeadKrack.  So far, so good, Williams seems to have found her niche, “On my very first day in the Atlanta studios of ‘Dish Nation’ I immediately felt a natural chemistry with the team. Rickey Smiley is an amazing comic and I am thrilled to learn and grow with one of the best morning hosts in the country,” she said in a statement according to Dish Nation.

Williams, who is also an entrepreneur and sometimes model, will be sharing her thoughts on up-to-the-minute celeb news and gossip over more than 60 syndicated markets across the country.

The 32-year-old Georgia socialite whose marital/divorce woes with ex Kordell Stewart were aired for all to witness on her reality show is also known for sharing thoughts that have not shown her in the best intellectual light. She has had to defend herself against such talk show celebs as Wendy Williams for referring to her as “less than smart.” Even on the RHOA, Williams has had to defend her ‘smarts’ and go toe-to-toe with cast members such as Kenya Moore, who view her as a mental midget.

Will Williams be able to hold her own and match wits with her outrageous “Dish Nation” cohorts, time will tell!  Stay tuned….
