"I Just Want To Touch The Rocks"

Pilar Jhena McKinley has endured enough photo sessions this holiday season. The youngster recently refused to pose for pictures with her mom, Porsha Williams, during their recent trip to Costa Rica.



Porsha tried to get her daughter to pause for the cause of taking a candid. Pilar, however, was more interested in connecting with nature.

“No,” Pilar screamed. “I just want to touch the rocks,” the youngster told her mom. Porsha attempted to get her daughter into the spirit by saying, “Come on PJ. Let’s take one picture. Just one.” The youngster, however, was not in the mood. Pilar walked away to leave Porsha to take pictures by herself.

“Pj – ‘Uh uh get somebody else to do it,’” Porsha said of her daughter’s attitude in the moment. “Pilar loves to take pics with mommy,” Williams told her social media fans. Some critics were not convinced that the youngster has been enjoying the spotlight, though.


“She just wants to be a kid, and have fun,” one social media follower said. “Everything is not a publicity or photo opp,” the Instagram user added. Another critic wrote, “Gurl! It is not your baby’s jam to be out there all the time. Check it.”

Pilar Jhena took lots of pictures during her mother’s wedding weekend last month. The youngster served as the flower girl for the ceremony in Nigeria as well as in the United States. Pilar was a great sport for all of the photography sessions during such a momentous occasion. Now, it seems the youngster is tired of all the attention.

Regardless of how Pilar feels about the spotlight, it is for certain that her mom works hard to have a strong bond with her daughter. “My mother is my best friend,” Porsha said during an interview last year. “She is the person that, like, if something exciting is happening to me, I want to kiki with her,” the Real Housewives of Atlanta (RHOA) star revealed.

“I love that I have a really close relationship with my mom, and I just know that my daughter Pilar and I will be the exact same way.”

Pilar Jhena is Porsha Williams’ daughter with businessman Dennis McKinley. The RHOA parents six kids with her husband, Simon Guobadia.
