Porsha Williams, cast member of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” and “Dish Nation,” collapsed at a local mall and landed at Piedmont Hospital Monday, according to TMZ.

She is reportedly okay. This follows a fainting spell in March on a plane. That was blamed on low blood sugar and TMZ speculated that may be the case this time as well.

Williams has not posted any updates on her Instagram or other social media as of this morning. Oddly, the TMZ story didn’t specify which mall she was at but given she ended up at Piedmont, it was probably Lenox or Phipps.

A representative who works on Rickey Smiley’s staff said she’s doing well and taking the day off. She will be back on “Dish Nation” tomorrow.

Williams was a full-time cast member of “Real Housewives” seasons five and six as well as eight. (She was dropped to recurring season seven.) Based on all accounts, she is shooting season nine as a full cast member.
