There is a definite schism in the ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ cast after Porsha Williams threw down with Kenya during the April 20 reunion episode, and Kenya subsequently pressed assault charges on her co-star. But a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that the rest of the ladies — especially NeNe — just want the whole thing to be squashed.
Is this the end of the Real Housewives of Atlanta as we know it? After an all-out reunion brawl between Porsha Williams and Kenya Moore resulted in criminal charges for Porsha, both ladies’ futures on the show are in doubt. Unless NeNe Leakes has something to say about it! A source tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively that the RHOA mother hen is organizing a campaign to sort this whole mess out.
NeNe Leakes Wants Kenya Moore To Drop Porsha Williams Charges
“NeNe’s been the one rallying the other girls [to get Kenya] to drop these charges,” the source says, referencing the misdemeanor battery charges Kenya has pressed against Porsha. The fight was bad for all the reality TV ladies in NeNe’s mind, and the longer the feud goes on, the worse it’s going to get. So NeNe has apparently launched into full-on politician mode.
“NeNe has been instrumental in this!” the source asserts. “She’s already reached out to every girl including Kenya and she wants to set up a lunch without Porsha, so they can all talk this out and really convince Kenya to show some mercy. They all acknowledge that Porsha’s messed up, that’s a given. But Kenya holds all the cards and NeNe really thinks she can straighten all this out.”
Porsha is extremely grateful for NeNe’s overhaul on Kenya, the source adds, and she really hopes a little outside help will do the trick.
Porsha Williams: Will She Be Fired From ‘RHOA?’
But she shouldn’t hold her breath. Porsha’s participance in RHOA is in total jeopardy and the odds don’t appear to be in her favor. “Porsha knows she f**ked up and is hoping Andy [Cohen] will forgive her and allow her to stay on,” the same source told us exclusively. Unfortunately, the source also said that Porsha will more likely be fired because Andy and other Bravo producers are 100 percent against violence on any of their shows. But even if Porsha’s fired, it’d be a nice consolation prize if Kenya dropped the charges. So will NeNe’s campaigning work, HollywoodLifers?
