Filming for "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" is officially underway and things are already getting heated between members of the cast. As you may recall, the Bravo series' cast was shaken up for Season 8, but it appears the drama remains between existing members. Porsha Williams and Cynthia Bailey have had their issues in the past and it doesn't look like a resolution will be coming any time soon.
According to TMZ, the pair were involved in a physical altercation during a boat cruise in Atlanta. It's unclear what started the fight, but sources said they heard Williams, 34, and Bailey, 47, shouting back and forth and calling each other names. Bailey is said to have tried to have remove herself from the situation, but Williams refused to let it go and followed her across the boat. She reportedly got in Bailey's face, prompting her to defend herself. The publication reports the former supermodel kicked Williams in the stomach. Producers then jumped in, preventing the fight from escalating. The violent encounter was captured by Bravo's cameras, so it seems fans will get the chance to see it for themselves.
Sources told E! News Williams has decided not to press charges against Bailey. She and the rest of the cast are reportedly hoping "to put it behind them." The source implied that filming had only just begun and, it seems the ladies don't want this feud to set the tone for the rest of the season.
"There's a lot of filming left to do and they just want to move forward," the source said.
This is not the first time Williams has been involved in a fight during "RHOA" filming. She and co-star Kenya Moore came to blows during the Season 6 reunion special. The pair, who have spent a majority of their time on the show at odds, were involved in a heated discussion when Moore, 44, pointed a princess wand in Williams' face. Williams then threw the toy across the stage, prompting Moore to break out the bullhorn she brought along incase such a situation arose. This further infuriated Williams, leading to a knock-down, drag-out fight of epic proportions. Needless to say, props are no longer allowed at "Housewives" reunions.
Williams and Bailey have not addressed the rumored fight. Bravo has yet to announce when "RHOA" will return to TV.
