The Real Housewives franchise is not afraid to fire a lady. Just ask the entire cast of The Real Housewives of New York City.

Things are heating up for the southern peaches. And The Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member Demetria McKinney might be getting the ax.

Originally slated to be a full-time Atlanta Housewife, McKinney, 35, was hired to join the cast for season 7. But she didn’t make the cut and was demoted to a “friend” of the housewives.

But her domestic days on Bravo, even as a friend, might be ending.

According to a Radar Online report, McKinney was not at the reunion taping in Atlanta, prompting speculation that her first season on the show will be her last.

Despite her initial conflicts with Phaedra Parks and NeNe Leakes, the insider claims that “the producers didn’t feel that Demetria had enough to bring to the table.”

This isn’t the first time an Atlanta Housewife has been traded in for a newer model. Porsha Williams, ex-wife of pro-footballer Kordell Stewart, was demoted in October.

But even Porsha came to the second half of the reunion taping, leading some to believe McKinney’s Housewives career is over.

The jury is still out if we will see Demetria on the show again. Even though the cast of the Atlanta Housewives keeps changing, let’s hope the fights keep on keeping on.
