RUMOR: NeNe Leakes Demoted To "Friend of the Housewives", Porsha Stewart and Cynthia Bailey Fired From "RHOA"

I don't believe any of this for a second. Besides, considering that RHOA is easily the highest-rated 'Housewives' franchise, Bravo execs would be idiots to change a thing:
With Season 6 of Real Housewives of Atlanta over and done with, all the talk has turned to who will be returning for Season 7 and the rumors are rampant. The latest word is that the show's only remaining original member could be delivering her last "Bloop." According to Tamara Tattles and RumorFix, NeNe Leakes may be losing her peach come Season 7, along with newcomer Porsha Williams

"My Bravo sources tell me that on Friday 'Pick up Letters' were sent," Tamara Tattle dishes, adding, "Okay so I have heard from a legit source that Nene and Porsha are relegated to possible FRIENDS of the housewives."

She went on to explain, "Yes, Porsha was fired, but all the controversy led Andy to maybe, possibly let her come back in a Marlo capacity ... But Nene is no longer worth her salary and they are letting her go."

Meanwhile, RumorFix is reporting the same rumors, but with one addition to the chopping block: Cynthia Bailey. Their site claims, "According to show insiders, Cynthia Bailey, Porsha Williams, and NeNe’s contracts have not been renewed for another season."

The story on the street is that NeNe made big demands for Season 7 — including a pay raise and a say in who she would or would not film with — and Bravo wasn't on board with her diva attitude. Earlier this week, reports surfaced that Andy Cohen was fed up with the Glee actress, too.

Still, other sources insist there is no truth to the rumors and NeNe herself has cast doubt on the gossip on Twitter.

"Laughing @ all these RUMORS," she posted on May 10.
