Could romance be in the cards for Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams and Dish Nation co-host Rickey Smiley? There's plenty of chemistry between the two and both have even expressed romantic interest in one another. However, both have also insisted that they are just friends and that mixing business with pleasure is not a good idea.
Porsha Williams Reveals the Only RHOA Co-Star She Would Trust to Set Her Up on a Date>>>
According to Smiley, it would be hard date his colleague because if things don't work out, they would break up and it would complicate things on Dish Nation.
"I think that she would make a great wife," Smiley said of Williams on Watch What Happens Live. "And what I see on [The] Real Housewives of Atlanta is not my experience with Porsha working with her every day and when we spend time together, just as friends."
But when a caller asked if Williams decided to leave Dish Nation if he would consider asking her out on a date, Smiley said "absolutely."
As for Williams, she also thinks highly of Smiley but asks fans to stop shipping them simply because they work together. "With Rickey, I want people to slow down," she told The Daily Dish. Chemistry like this that happens in these type of situations, he doesn't work somewhere else. We work together. So it's not easy to make that decision to cross that line. I've heard that he thinks that I would be a great wife. I think that he'd be a great husband. He's an excellent father. So as far as having kids and wanting to pick the right dad, he would be the one. But I think that we're just friends, overall."
