How does Falynn Guobadia feel about this shocking engaged?

Upset? Angry? Dismayed? Totally stabbed in the back?

"I want to thank everyone for reaching out to me and offering their love and support," Falynn said in a statement on Tuesday.

"At this time, I am focusing on finalizing my divorce and healing. Sending positivity to all of you."

Falynn and Simon were married for two years before confirming their divorce in April 2021.

"After two years of marriage and 5 years of friendship, Simon and I have made the difficult decision to go our separate ways," Falynn wrote on her Instagram Story at the time.

She added back then:

"We are deeply thankful for the impact we have made in each other’s lives, as well as the bonds formed with each other’s children.

"This mutual decision was not made lightly.

"And despite our current willingness to be transparent, we only ask our friends and supporters to be respectful of our privacy as our family gets through this very difficult period."


According to TMZ insiders, meanwhile, Porsha and Falynn were never really friends. At all.

The website reports that the pair met on the very first day of filming the latest season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta and producers told them to act close.

Crazy, right?

Porsha, for her part, went on to confirm the timeline of her relationship with Simon yesteday.

"For all of you that need facts, I get the optics but Simon filed for divorce from a previous marriage in January. I had nothing to do with their divorce filing.

"That’s between the two of them.

"Falynn and I are not friends, and Simon’s divorce has been settled. Our relationship is a positive, loving step forward in everybody’s lives."

Porsha split with former fiancé Dennis McKinley for a second time in October 2020.

Simon, for his part, took to social media to praise his future wife this week.

"Did not expect to be blessed with a mate so soon," he wrote.

"We have done the individual work to sustain a healthy relationship, and I stand next to her, proud that we found each other.

"What we have is what we wish every single one of you out there – happiness."
