La’Porsha took the time to chat with HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY after the big American Idol finale on April 7, and she wanted to explain why she has always felt that her history as a survivor was so important to share.
“To be a domestic violence survivor is a lot of daily work,” La’Porsha explained EXCLUSIVELY to HollywoodLife.com. “It can be a physical turmoil on you and you need a lot of strength to get through that. A lot of people said that I was using my story to have a sob story, and to gain tears.
