NeNe Leakes Denies Cast Trying to Keep Porsha Williams On the Show


ChristianPost.com:
NeNe Leakes is denying that her fellow "Real Housewives of Atlanta" cast members have come together in an attempt to stop Porsha Williams from being kicked off the show.

Kenya Moore Moore, the 43-year-old former beauty queen was allegedly assaulted by Porsha Williams, 32, after the former reportedly continued to mock the latter's public divorce from former NFL player Kordell Stewart. After sources like Radar Online, Us Weekly and TMZ shared the news complete with accounts of what took place from anonymous witnesses, news surfaced that the show's stars refused to sign new contracts if Williams was booted.

However, Leakes, 46, insists those reports are false.

"I don't know where that came from. I've never said that," Leakes insisted to ESSENCE magazine. "We don't group up together to do much. You know all of us aren't goosing up together to be going to bat for Porsha."

She revealed why the likelihood of the rumors were not true.

"We don't collectively do anything. But I will say this, I don't think that Porsha deserves to get fired based on the fight with Kenya," Leakes told the magazine. "I do think she was on the chopping block before she got into the fight. Fighting Kenya did not help her case."

A 911 tape featuring Moore surfaced online, where Moore does tell authorities that she was assaulted. However, the former beauty queen took to Twitter to speak about the matter shortly after it took place.

"#TeamTwirl one thing u will NEVER see me do is fight," Moore tweeted. "Your brain and tongue are your most powerful weapons."

While E! News reports that the altercation did take place, sources tell the publication that it was not as dramatic as some have reported. Another source told Us Weekly Moore was not badly injured but did not rule out the possibility of her pressing charges against Williams.

Despite the severity of the altercation, Williams may now be in hot water after the dispute. The Bravo television series producers reportedly have a zero tolerance policy for violence after a brawl involving Apollo Nida and Brandon DeShazer took place earlier in season six of the show.

While the decision to cut Williams from the cast has not been officially made, TMZ is reporting that sources close to the situation believe she is on the chopping block after recent events.
