A fairly large entertainment site is reporting that Porsha has replaced Phaedra with Kim Biermann as her new BFF on RHOA. The same site says that Kim and Porsha are currently filming together. The short version is this is fake news. It’s a slow news day today and sometimes that leads some sites to just make stuff up. I am addressing it here because I’ve gotten a few questions about it today.
The facts are that production isn’t even rolling into town until next week. Last I heard, they had not even hired a new showrunner to replace Carlos for season ten. Next week will be a lot of logistical work, hashing out location permits, pinning down everyone’s story line. In general it will take some time to get things up and running again.
THEY HAVE NOT STARTED FILMING RHOA YET!
Rumors like this get traction because it sort of makes sense. Who the hell is Porsha going to film with? Kandi, Cynthia, Kenya don’t want anything to do with her and haven’t for some time. All three of them have been attacked either physically or verbally by Porsha. Kim and Kenya have been taking shots at each other on social media since the end of season nine. Kim will have a fake alliance with Sheree. But Kim is only part-time. Nene is not interested in filming with Porsha either. So in all likelihood, Porsha’s scenes will have Sheree and Kim as her “friends.” It’s not rocket science.
BUT THEY HAVE NOT EVEN STARTED FILMING YET.
Porsha spent last weekend hosting a party on a yacht in Miami for a gay pride event. Kim seriously does not leave her house and family unless she is getting paid. In fact, she had the puppy adoption people bring the puppies to her house rather than taking all the kids in. Sheree’s daughter has been keeping her busy with her recent graduation from high school. Getting her off to college is a possible storyline for her in season ten. Sheree is pushing the fact that she is one of the original housewives as a reason for a Sheree, Nene and Kim alliance. I don’t know how Nene feels about that.
Nene’s son Brentt graduated from high school recently as well. She has taken Brentt and friends on a trip to Miami, bought him a very expensive jeep, rented a Rolls Royce for him to drive to prom, and had at least two professional photo shoots of him done. She is also trying to include him in her business ventures again.
Remember when she was flying to Haiti to sign people up for that ridiculous MLM plan that was supposed to make everyone rich? Well she doesn’t do that anymore. Brentt has also removed all of that crap from his social media. She is now back to selling flat tummy tea, the scam diet tea that sells for $50 a month. You can buy the same product in Kroger as green tea with a diuretic and have the same experience. That experience is… you will pee a lot.
This weekend, Nene and Brentt are having a sip and see at SWAGG, a store that she claims some sort of ownership in but in actuality is more of a paid spokesperson. Think Sonja Morgan and Tipsy Girl. I expect this endeavor to be slightly more successful than Tipsy Girl though.
So to answer your question, the article is false. But it is almost time for me to start poking around for the actual facts regarding season ten filming.
