Just when you think certain Real Housewives of Atlanta cast members have reached the pinnacle of ignorance, Porsha Stewart opens her mouth and embarrasses herself to no end. The reality star recently revealed her lack of understanding regarding United States history, confusing the Underground Railroad with actual trains.
As usual, there was plenty of drama on the latest episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. But the true entertainment arrived during the ladies’ Freedom Trail tour in Savannah, when Porsha Stewart made her ignorance on all things history abundantly clear.
During the tour, a guide pointed out ventilation holes in the First African Baptist Church, where “people crawled under to escape slavery.” A confused Porsha proceeded to explain, “There has to be an opening for the railroad.”
Fortunately, not all of the cast members on The Real Housewives of Atlanta are so woefully ignorant as Porsha. Following the reality star’s cringe-inducing statement, Phaedra Parks clarified, “It wasn’t a train. It was a euphemism, baby.” Kenya later added, “It’s almost hurtful to watch her be so dumb.” Kenya later took to social media to explain exactly how hurtful the statement was, tweeting, “I want to laugh but it makes me want 2 cry…when [Porsha's] grandfather fought 4 civil rights that she bragged about, to not know that there wasn’t a literal train!”
As usual, NeNe Leakes’ response to the hilarious flub was the most concise and the most entertaining. The popular Real Housewives star simply said, “Ding dong” with an amused expression on her face.
