Real Housewives' Porsha Williams Apologizes For Anti-Gay Speech

May 07, 2014

The Real Housewives of Atlanta's Porsha Williams has apologized for a sermon she gave three years ago that included comments criticized as anti-gay.

"My heart was heavy and it's imperative for me to address the issue," Williams says in a video message released to People Wednesday. "God loves all of his children."

Williams, 31, has been widely criticized after a controversial sermon she gave three years ago recently resurfaced online.

"We Christians are supposed to be telling the hooker on the street, the drug dealer ... the gays, the lesbians – we're supposed to be trying to save them and tell them, 'You are worthy,'" she said in the footage, posted Monday by TMZ.
