Porsha Williams Demoted on Real Housewives of Atlanta

Reality star will only have supporting role in upcoming season.

Published October 2, 2014

Porsha Williams clearly hasn't been earning her keep as a cast member on Real Housewives of Atlanta. Producers have demoted the reality star from series regular to just a "friend" of the other housewives, TMZ reports. 

The reasons for the demotion are reportedly two-fold: Williams' diva behavior during filming, and also her unwillingness to share certain personal details on camera.

After her explosive fight with Kenya Moore last season, Williams was naturally meant to be a major player on the upcoming season of RHOA, but sources at the show's network Bravo claim that, when producers tried to get Williams to talk things out with Moore, the former NFL wife nearly started another brawl. Producers also add that Williams tried to start a fight with new castmember Claudia Jordan.

As a result, producers have demoted Williams to a supporting role on the upcoming season and upgraded Jordan to a series regular. We're not sure since when brawling on camera is considered bad behavior for reality stars, but maybe RHOA is trying to keep it classy this season?
