‘RHOA’ star Porsha Stewart blames brain lapses on her missteps

“The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Porsha Stewart had a bad experience while filming the show a few months ago. The group went to visit some historical landmarks, where the women saw one of the safe houses slaves used to scape to the free states. She made a comment about the underground railroad, saying, “Well, there has to be an opening for the railroad at some point, because somebody is driving the train.” According to a new Radar Online report published on Jan. 29, “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Porsha Stewart is now revealing that her brain may have been at fault for some odd comments.

Of course, her comment quickly made headlines because of her grandfather, Hosea Williams, who was a civil rights leader. “Yeah that was a brain lapse,” she revealed to the website. “I’ve definitely had my little airy moments throughout the season and people giggled about them, I giggled about them. But this was something that’s close to my heart.”

And it sounds like it isn’t something she has forgotten. In fact, after the episode aired, she went back to educate herself about the underground railroad and the safe houses the slaves went to. And it sounds like she wants to improve how she comes across on the show.

“Out of respect for those people of the struggle, I wanted to make sure I went back so that whenever I have the opportunity to speak again, I speak intelligently and I don’t misrepresent the legacy of my family or those people who paved the way for us,” she said. “The thing about life is you need to grow to learn from your experiences,” Stewart said. “You need to grow from it and learn and that’s just what I did.”
