AceShowbiz - "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" may or may not lose one of its cast members. It's reported that the filming for the new season of the Bravo reality show is being postponed as the show is having difficulty in coming to terms with Porsha Williams.
According to MTO News, the new mom is "playing hardball" during negotiation for a new contract with the network. It is said that Porsha is demanding a huge raise for the new deal.
In season 11, the TV star reportedly made $31,500 per episode which is equal to $630K for the season. And for the upcoming season 12, Porsha is seeking more than double her last salary. The report suggests that she wants Bravo to pay her $75,000 per episode or $1.5M for one season.
A source close to the production believes that Porsha's fiance Dennis McKinley is the mastermind behind the crazy demand. "Porsha is being very aggressive with her demands, that's coming from [Dennis]," says the insider.
When asked if Bravo is considering to let Porsha go because of that, a Bravo executive shares that the network will do its best to keep her on the show. "No [Bravo] will pay her. It's coming out of someone else's salary though," the exec reveals.
This is not the first time that Dennis is said to be bringing tension with Bravo. The bosses at the network previously were said to be upset after Dennis set a live streaming service called Peach Lemonade for his fiancee and baby mama.
While fans praised the couple for the new "money moves," this apparently got Bravo honchos "nervous." A Bravo executive said, "Porsha is on an exclusive contract. She can not be on any other reality shows without Bravo's consent. I don't know what type of cameras he's going to have in their house. Also the word 'peach' is Bravo's copyright."
Another source close to production added, "It seems like Dennis is trying to finesse Bravo."
