Williams and her Sister/assistant Lauren hit up a few shows hoping to pop a squat on the front row for some much needed exposure but were shocked when they weren’t allowed the access they are normally accustomed.
Apparently the NYC Fashion world doesn’t see it for ‘reality girls’ and have made no qualms about blocking them from front row seats.

Stylist Phillip Bloch, pictured with Porsha spilled the tea to PageSix, stating that Porsha and reality stars like her are being blocked from sitting front row during Fashion Week by publicists and show runners.
“They’re giving reality girls a hard time,” he told us at the Vivienne Tam show at Lincoln Center. “They really just want the young, ingénue-y girls; you may not even know their names.”
Asked which stars have had issues, Bloch mentioned Atlanta “Housewife” Porsha Williams (who was seen with him at shows for Alice + Olivia and Vivienne Tam), adding,
“I have heard quite a few names. They gave people a hard time about seats . . . There’s a weird push-me, pull-you feel to it.
Yet you bring somebody and everybody is taking pictures. It’s good for the audience, it’s good for the energy.”
Apparently Porsha managed to talk herself into the front row of at least two shows, however her sister Lauren was apparently out of luck.

Are we surprised that Porsha’s ‘star power’ doesn’t reach NY Fashion Week?’ Or Nah?
