As I told you earlier, Bravo Network is doing some house cleaning and getting rid of Real Housewives of Atlanta cast members who are no longer bringing in viewers.
According to my insider, Bravo plan to bring in 2 new cast members to fill in for outgoing cast members in season 9.
My spy didn't say who's leaving, but according to Rhymeswithsnitch, 4 cast members have already signed new contracts (Kandi, Kenya, Cynthia and Phaedra), leaving 2 cast members -- Porsha and Sheree -- out in the cold.
As usual, NeNe Leakes decides whether she comes or goes.
I knew you wanted to know the real deal, so I reached out to my insider (who begged for anonymity, and this is what they said:
"Well as the public knows Kim Fields will not be returning. And Porsha Williams' spot is contingent on if they find a strong new cast member that has great chemistry with the rest of the cast and a unique story line.
BRAVO really does not like the physical altercations Porsha has been involved in these past few seasons, and it's really hurting the brand especially the casting process.
BRAVO as a network does not want to be associated with physical violence on their network like VH1. Porsha's social media following, fanbase, and viewer likability are her only saving graces. So don't be surprised if there are 2 new housewives next season, but everything is still in the screening stages."
