Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams sparked engagement rumors after she was spotted leaving a diamond store in New York City with her new beau, Dennis McKinley, on Friday (July 6).
TMZ caught up with the couple as they left Leon Diamond jewelry store and asked if they had been looking at engagement rings. Williams coyly responded, “We were just looking at everything.”
Since early June, the reality star has been writing the hashtag, #DM, on several of her photos and video postings on Instagram. After having a couple of her relationships play out on the Bravo’s series, Williams decided to keep her latest relationship out of the public eye.
She did, however, reveal that she was seeing someone during a segment of Dish Nation, the radio show she co-host. “It’s always when you’re not looking anymore. It’s when you go ahead and give up… I stopped looking, and he arrived. Thank you, Jesus!” She exclaimed.
It was not until a few days ago that Williams’ new boyfriend was revealed as McKinley, an Atlanta businessman. According to the Jasmine Brand, he owns an investment company called Detroit Equities, a hair company and previously worked as an actor.
There has been no mention of when, where or how Williams and McKinley met.
