Somehow Porsha Stewart – a granddaughter of late civil rights leader Hosea Williams – got to the age of 32 believing that the Underground Railroad was an actual train.
On Sunday night’s episode of the “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” the ladies took a trip to Savannah, where they embarked upon a Freedom Trail tour, visiting a landmark church that was used as part of the Underground Railroad during the pre-Civil War era.
The tour guide explained that the holes in the floor were used for ventilation as people would pass under the church in a small four foot area of crawl space, which had Stewart puzzled. (Watch after the jump.)
“Well there has to be an opening for the railroad at some point because somebody’s driving the train,” Porsha said. “It’s not electric like what we have now,” she added.
“It wasn’t a train, baby,” Phaedra Parks explained as Stewart’s costars stood in shock. “That was just a euphemism, baby.”
“It wasn’t a train at all,” Parks continued as Kandi Burruss tried to help clear up Porsha’s confusion.
“Just a railroad,” Stewart said, now thinking it was train tracks. “Oh, I’m thinking it was like widespread.”
While Phaedra and Kandi simply tried to educate Porsha, the rest of the ladies had their own thoughts to share on Stewart’s headline-making flub.
