Discussing her friendship with the Duchess of Sussex in an interview with Australia’s “The Project,” which took place three days after her US Open defeat, Williams, 36, said she and Markle, 37, stay in touch regularly.

“We were actually just texting each other this morning,” revealed the tennis ace.

“We have known each other for a long time, but we really are relying on each other a lot recently,” she added.

After reportedly meeting in 2010, Williams’ bond with Markle continued to grow over the years. In May, the athlete and husband Alexis Ohanian attended the former “Suits” star’s wedding to Prince Harry, a moment Williams believes will have a lasting impact.

“To have such a monumental moment in England, nonetheless of all the places, I felt like we were literally watching history,” Williams said of the royal nuptials. “I feel like in a few years we are going to look back at that moment and it’s going to be so historic. It’s going to be something that people never forget. The whole service was really wonderful, and most of all I just wanted to see my friend be happy. And I think that’s what happened.”

While Markle supported Williams at Wimbledon over the summer, the newest member of the royal family missed her friend’s outburst on the court at the Open earlier this month.

Williams exploded on chair umpire Carlos Ramos after being penalized for getting coached on the side by her coach, Patrick Mouratoglou. She believes she was unfairly treated because of her sex.

“I just don’t understand … if you’re a female, you should be able to do even half of what a guy can do,” she said.

We really love the friendship and sisterhood between these two. Let this be encouragement to reach out to your “strong friend” today. I am sure they would appreciate the love right now!

Porsha Williams & her boyfriend, Dennis McKinley, are expecting their first child together

“When I found out I was pregnant, I was excited [but] I had mixed feelings. The other feeling that I had beside excitement was fear,” the Real Housewives of Atlanta star, who suffered a miscarriage six years ago, reveals to PEOPLE in an interview for the newest issue, out Friday.

“I’ve had a miscarriage before in my past, which I’ve also been open about because I suffer with fibroids and had to have a myomectomy,” continues Williams, 37. “So just the fear of, ‘Is the baby going to be okay? Will I make it full term?’ All those questions that you ask if you’ve had a miscarriage before.”

“Going into the first appointment and being able to see baby and hear baby and know that baby is fine, then I can really wrap my mind around actually becoming a mommy,” she explains, sharing that she would be seeing her little one for the first time later on the same day as the interview.

Having a miscarriage is devastating for any parent, and we definitely understand her pain and reservation. We are hoping and praying that she has a healthy baby and carries them full term with no complications. Things are really looking up for Porsha. Not only are she and her boyfriend, Dennis McKinley, about to be new parents; the eleventh season of RHOA is set to debut this November, and she is still making moves in the hair business and radio/television with her line of weaves and on Dish Nation.

Congrats again Porsha, you deserve it!

Michael B. Jordan is definitely know stranger to superhero films as he portrayed The Human Torch in the ill-fated 2015 installment of the Fantastic Four, and most recently asthe villainous  Erik Killmonger in Marvel’s Black Panther movie. As also previously reported Warner Bros. is moving forward with a Supergirl film.

The Black Superman, Calvin Ellis

We have to say seeing Michael as Superman would be awesome, but I am not sure how well received he would be by the general populace, let alone fanboys. There is a way they could pull it off. In other universes in the DC Multiverse, there is a Black Superman named Calvin Ellis, who is not only his world’s Man of Steel, but President of The United States as well. It would be awesome to see this character brought to life. Then, there are the denizens of Vlathos Island on Krypton who were Black Kryptonians and created their own Wakanda-like paradise on the doomed planet.

What do you guys think? Would Michael B. Jordan make a great Superman? Sound off in the comments section below!
