The Real Housewives of Atlanta cast is locked in multiple major feuds right now.
NeNe Leakes is going off of Porsha Williams and on Cynthia Bailey and has apparently decided that everyone is her enemy.
Bravo is scrambling to deploy their cameras so that they can capture all of this messy drama for themselves.
HollywoodLife reports that showrunnes are putting the pedal to the medal so that they can begin production.
"[Real Housewives Of Atlanta] producers want to start filming Season 12 as soon as possible," an insider reveals.
The source specifies that they want to do this "so they can capture the ongoing drama between Porsha [Williams] and NeNe [Leakes]."
Real talk, does anyone need NeNe specified with her last name? She’s not the only person named NeNe, but she is the only Real Housewife.
(It’s not like she’s named Lisa)
The insider adds that they want to capture that "as well as the drama between NeNe and Cynthia [Bailey]."
"Producers were supposed to start filming in June," the source reveals.
For producers, that’s along month and some change away.
Too far, by their estimation.
"But they are trying to get everything in place," the insider shares.
The soruce says that they’re doing their best to prepare "to begin earlier if possible."
Cynthia Bailey and NeNe were once fast friends.
They have been feuding over the most peculiar subject — Cynthia’s party.
If you’ll recall, Cynthia didn’t give NeNe a head’s up that Kenya Moore would be attending her party.
As a result, NeNe accused Cynthia of lying to her.
In NeNe’s view, Cynthia betrayed her, and she refuses to accept her apology.
And then there’s Porsha Williams.
Porsha accuses NeNe of not being supportive of her because NeNe didn’t attend her baby shower.
(A lot of anger and resentment and bitterness over who attends which parties, huh? It’s like being 14 again)
And then there’s the fact that Porsha went into NeNe’s closet when NeNe had specifically asked that everyone stay out of it.
Petty? Yes. But an extremely fair boundary to set and not a reasonable one to cross.
Following the Reunion special, NeNe and Porsha have taken their quarrel off camera.
On Instagram, Porsha announced that NeNe had body-shamed her following her pregnancy.
NeNe did bombard her with a series of vicious insults.
(Say what you will about NeNe, but she is relentless and creative with her personal attacks)
So yeah, these two aren’t making peace any time soon … but that doesn’t mean that Bravo’s cameras want to miss any of the action.
Not to be all armchair psychiatrist here, but … maybe part of NeNe’s especially short fuse and these feuds isn’t about the other women.
Don’t get us wrong, we understand why Cynthia and Porsha are clashing with her.
But considering Gregg Leakes’ cancer battle and the very real toll that it has taken on NeNe, could it be that she’s just … frustrated.
Gregg has lashed out verbally at her, and it’s really gotten to her.
Could it be that she’s lashing out at Cynthia and Porsha because they’re "safe targets" for her frustrations?
Or maybe she’s just, you know, a reality star and she’s feuding like it’s her job because it is literally her job.
