Okay, I have been getting info all weekend on RHOA casting which “officially” starts filming today. And I don’t like it one bit. I admit I post the tea faster when it is something I want to hear and try like hell to disprove it if it is something bad. This is bad. Like really bad.
The last RHOA casting scoop I had said that Nene, Kenya, Kandi and Cynthia were in and Claudia, Porsha, and Phaedra were on standby. Once Nene “left” I know we here at TamaraTattles were hoping that Claudia would come back. Well, that is not what I am hearing.
The thing about this very early casting tea is that things change all the time and nothing is set in stone. What I am hearing now is that the only people who seem completely safe are Kandi and Cynthia. What about Kenya you ask? Because I have asked that to everyone I know, and it seems that Kenya and PHAEDRA are in the same pot. Producers are worried about both of them having enough storyline to be a full time housewife. They are both going to film and decisions will be made in a few weeks as to what to do with them. I can’t imagine Kenya not coming back, ESPECIALLY with Nene gone, but this is the word on the street in both NYC and Atlanta.
Even worse, Claudia is still OUT and Porsha is back IN. Again, this to me is a casting mistake in my opinion. It looks like Porsha may be getting her peach back. She reportedly has found a “boyfriend” to date on the show. Wouldn’t it be funny if it was Walter? Who the HELL wants to film with Porsha? No one, that’s who! So to review, Kandi, Cynthia and Porsha seem destined to return. Kenya and Phaedra are in the possible category and Claudia is still out at this point.
The other bit of tea is that Kim Fields is not fitting in with the other women. The returning cast mates don’t think she is a good fit for the show. (That is the polite way of saying they don’t like her.) HOWEVER, production is very pleased with her. No one has mentioned the other three hopefuls at all. I didn’t ask about them specifically, because like I always say I try to listen to what I am given and not ask too many questions so that my sources don’t get irritated and stop talking.
To me, this sounds like a disaster. I know that Kandi is popular on the show, And I love Cynthia, But I don’t see a show where Kandi, Cynthia and Porsha are steering the ship. UGH.
What do y’all think?
