Cast members threaten to walk if Stewart is fired.
It's good to have friends in influential places. After rumors surfaced that Bravo executives were looking to axe Porsha Stewart from Real Housewives of Atlanta, her co-stars are proving that they have her back.
According to TMZ, the Real Housewives of Atlanta castmembers — except Stewart's nemesis Kenya Moore — presented a united front to the show's producers after Kandi Burruss's wedding (which was filmed for an upcoming special), saying that if Stewart is fired, they would all walk. What's more, RHOA heavyweights Phaedra Parks and NeNe Leakes are maneuvering to have Moore, who most of the cast has accused this season of stirring up drama, fired from the show instead.
Things came to a head between Stewart and Moore during the show's reunion special, during which they castmates got into a heated brawl. According to sources, executives were looking to use the debacle as an excuse to fire Stewart, but the stand-off with the rest of the cast may make that impossible.
Whoever thought we would see such a display of unity among our favorite backstabbing bunch?
