Earlier this year, The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Stewart found herself in the middle of a highly-publizised feud with actress Tamala Jones.
Prior to their feud, it had been reported that Stewart was dating a man named Teodoro Nguema Obiang Mangue. However, Mangue was actually dating Jones, and once she discovered the false report, she immediately went public, slamming Stewart for lying and stepping on her toes.
Now, Jones is speaking out again, claiming the whole thing was Stewart's effort at gaining press.
“I really feel it was a publicity stunt, honestly,” Jones explained to Madame Noire. “But it was the person that she chose to put out there for the publicity stunt and what she was saying about that particular individual. It was the wrong person to choose.”
Although Jones was certainly upset that Stewart was being publicly tied to her man, what really set her off was the fact that Stewart had hinted that Mangue was showering her with gifts. While she never mentioned him by name, Stewart had been tweeting photos of elaborate gifts -- one being a Rolls Royce -- around the time of the report.
“He is from a country that already has a bad reputation in the US about how their money is being spent,” Tamala explains, adding, “You can say you’re dating him if that’s what you want to do for publicity stunt, but don’t lavish the gifts and all that stuff when they already have issues with where the money’s going to in the country.”
