There is no such thing as a perfect human being or marriage! Every marriage has its share of problematic issues, and every human being has succumbed to mistakes. A productive marriage consist of two people who stands together as one that continuously strive to build each other up.

Ms. Holt-Martin is a strong and straightforward woman who isn’t a fan of sugar coating words! The one thing you can always count on from Porsha Holt-Martin is a heavy dose of “realness”. This bold WeTv fan favorite tells it like it is and makes no apology for it. You can’t refute the fact that Marriage Boot Camp stars, Porsha and Byron Martin, were encountering difficult time within their marriage. With an omission of infidelity on Bryon’s behalf, this couple faces a rough road ahead. On Marriage Boot Camp, Porsha presented Byron with divorce paper in which he tore up. In true Porsha fashion, she retrieves an additional copy of the divorce papers. Byron ripped them up as well!
One of the most important factors in a marriage is successful communication. A marriage without a positive way of communicating point of view and emotions will in due course fall apart. Communication is a fundamental building block of life. It is the foundation for development in relationships. The lack of effective communication in a marriage can be damaging. The ability to make an effective effort to not only listen, but understand what your spouse is communicating. This is the key to creating a healthy line of exchange between spouses.
In an exclusive interview with h-connect, this WeTv breakout star, Porsha Holt-Martin, speaks candidly about her marriage taking responsibility for your actions instead of placing blame, maintaining romantic sparks in a marriage, role playing, date night, misconception that she bullies her husband, and the future of her marriage.
Author B.L. Brown-Tell h-connect readers about yourself? Where are you from? What’s your passion?
Porsha-I am 30 years old. I have one daughter; she’s 8. I was born and raised in Greenville, Mississippi. I’m a people’s person with a passion for entertaining. People love to be around me because I’m real and I will say what others are thinking but may not have the courage to say.
Author B.L. Brown - Where did you meet your husband, Byron Martin? How long did it take Byron to ask you out on a date?
Porsha - Byron & I are from the same small town. We actually lived right around the corner from each other. It didn’t take Byron long to ask my sister about me, but it took me forever to respond because I was in a relationship already.
Author B.L. Brown - Where did Byron take you on your first date? What is your ideal first date?
Porsha - We went to a local restaurant called “Mexican Grill”. My ideal first date consists of a romantic night, and me getting to know my date better. I like to take things “SLOW”!
Author B.L. Brown - What was the defining moment in which you realized Byron Martin was the man you wanted to spend the rest of your life with?
Porsha - I knew early on Byron was the one for me because he took his time with me, he didn’t rush me. He was a complete gentleman; I was impressed.
Author B.L. Brown - If you could describe yourself in one word, what would it be?
Author B.L. Brown – On season 1 of WeTv Bridezillas Boot Camp, Bryon admitted to cheating on you. What was your initial thought after hearing of your husband’s infidelity?
Porsha - At first, I didn’t believe it because Byron had already told me that they made him say that. I later founded out that Byron was lying. To answer your question, it was hard to believe because Byron doesn’t admit to anything.
Author B.L. Brown - Porsha, you are a strong, straightforward, somewhat controlling woman. Do you feel your behavior impacted some of the problems in your marriage, such as, poor communication?
Porsha- LOL! Yes, I do feel that by me being a loud person that I do come off strong and that maybe that’s reason why Byron doesn’t open up to me.
Author B.L. Brown - Are you and Bryon still together?
Porsha- This million dollar question will be answered soon on a special on WeTv, please tune in.
Author B.L. Brown – What’s the worst moment you experienced on WeTv Bridezillas Boot Camp?
Porsha- I wouldn’t say the worse, but I hated that I looked like I was in denial about Bryon’s admission of infidelity because I wasn’t in denial.
Author B.L. Brown - What’s the most valuable tool you gained from appearing on WeTv Bridezillas Boot camp?
Porsha-I would say… my 1st impression to my cast mates.
Author B.L. Brown - What does open and honest communication in a marriage mean to you? What does respect in a marriage mean to you?
Porsha- Open and honest communication is everything in a marriage, because without that there is no marriage. Respect is everything in general to me. If you can’t respect me, then we can’t be together.
Author B.L. Brown- Do you think being friends with your spouse is an important part of marriage?
Porsha Yes!!! Actually that’s most important because I feel like you and your spouse should know everything about each other. When my friends stabbed me in back and I faced personal difficulties, I could always rely on my husband to love and support me no matter what.
Author B.L. Brown- Has there been any substantial event that has changed your marriage? If so, what was the event? How did it affect your marriage?
Porsha Event? No! Nothing can change or impact my marriage but me and my husband. If either of us did something, we should be held accountable for it, instead of blaming outsiders.
Author B.L. Brown - What is the biggest misconception about you?
Porsha- So glad you ask this. People think that I bully Byron. I really hate that people feel that way. I go out my way to help encourage Byron in whatever he needs or wants to do.
Author B.L. Brown- What are some qualities you admire the most about Byron?
Porsha- Byron is the sweetest person you will ever meet. He’s that guy that will carry an elder person’s bags to their car, and he will help change a flat tire. I could go on all day about him, but he’s a great guy.
Author B.L. Brown- How important is it to maintain romantic sparks in a marriage?
Porsha -Let me tell you, this is a must!!! Role playing, date night, I love to keep the fire burning.
Author B.L. Brown- What’s next for Porsha Holt-Martin, the career woman? What can you reveal to us about your next project?
Porsha – I want to transition into acting, and yes, you will see more of me on TV. My fans love me and they want to see more of me. I have to give them what they want.
Author B.L. Brown- Is there anything else you’d like to share? (about yourself, company, products, services, up and comings business ventures, etc.).
Porsha- Yes, expect to see me on a plus size runway, plus size clothing, and girly products from me. I love purses, shoes & accessories.
