Bravo may lose a majority of its “Real Housewives of Atlanta” cast if one of its newer stars gets the boot.
According to a report from TMZ Tuesday, reality star Porsha Williams, the former wife of retired NFL player Kordell Stewart, is on the chopping block following her recent scuffle with cast member Kenya Moore. Despite Williams being pegged as the instigator, allegedly assaulting Moore during the taping of a Season 6 reunion special at the Biltmore Hotel in Atlanta, last month, the cast of “RHOA” is reportedly siding with the newly divorced reality star, telling Bravo that they will walk if she is given her pink slip.
“The entire cast of ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta- minus one- is threatening to walk off the show,” reads TMZ’s report, adding that the stars, specifically NeNe Leakes and Phaedra Parks, are planning to ask producers to remove Moore, 43, from the program in favor of their 32-year-old pal, Williams. “They despise Moore because of all the drama she stirs up,” reports TMZ, later adding, “The women have made it clear ... they'll walk if Porsha gets fired.”
According to original reports, the brawl between Moore and Williams erupted during a "RHOA" taping on March 27. Allegedly, Williams appeared to have a “nervous breakdown” before charging at Moore. The fight is rumored to have included “clawing” and “hair-pulling.” In Moore’s 911 call to authorities following the fight, she alleges that Williams “assaulted” her by hitting her head.
Rumors of Williams' possible firing first made headlines last month, one day after the explosive reunion altercation, a source close to production telling Radar Online that her future on the series was unknown. “Was she fired? No. Would she potentially be? Who knows? Anything is possible right now, clearly,” said the source, adding that as of March 28, Williams had yet to be handed her walking papers. “A lot of conversations have to happen, so no decisions have been made yet,” added the source.
As of Tuesday, TMZ reported that all “RHOA” stars' contracts are on hold while producers reassess the casting.
“The Real Housewives of Atlanta” season finale airs Sunday at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo. The explosive reunion will air in two parts, the first half premiering on April 20 and part two airing on April 27.
