Real Housewives fans are rarely shocked. After the intrigue and plot of season 13 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta were weak, the most shocking development occurred after the reunion was finished.

What is Simon Guobadia’s net worth?
Simon Guobadia, a Canadian entrepreneur, businessperson, and producer, has a net worth of $40 million. In 2014, his other restaurants – Time and Buckhead Bottle Bar – also closed down.
Guobadia moved to the United States in the 1970s and worked as a tax manager at an Atlanta-based firm, Deloitte, from 2004 to 2006. Guobadia became the CEO of Simcol Petroleum Limited Company in 2007.
Guobadia is also an active philanthropist, having produced films such as Buckhead, Son of the South, Theatre Jail Dogs, and Kill.
His most lucrative enterprises have been restaurants, but they all came to ruins quickly. Simon’s Restaurant debuted in 2017 but closed in May 2020 due to the epidemic.

Simon’s worth tens of millions
As a result of his charitable giving, he has a net worth of around $40 million, according to several reports. But he’s not only a big spender; he’s also a dedicated philanthropist. He sponsors faith groups and initiatives that aid minorities in Atlanta, according to The Atlantan.
“As a first-generation entrepreneur who has overcome his own obstacles and has prevailed, it is critical for me to give my time and resources to assist others in seeing beyond their own circumstances,” he added. “I give back so that Black excellence will become the rule rather than the exception.”
Simon Guobadia and Porsha Williams’ personal life
The relationship between Williams and Simon Guobadia started in Season 13 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, when cast member Falynn Guobadia invited Williams and some other friends over to her house to hang out.
