Here is the latest EXCLUSIVE TEA on the confusing RHOA Casting .
The new production team for RHOA does not seem to know what they want. Their tactics seem to be film a bunch of random stuff and figure it all out later. But now they are going to be doing it without Claudia. Claudia appears to be out for good this time. Claudia has opted to work her own booking (often with Demetria McKinney) and leave RHOA behind. Claudia has been making a lot of changes in her life and moving her career in a different direction. RHOA can’t seem to promise anyone anything at the moment and Claudia is not one to sit on the sidelines while other people get their shit together.
So Claudia and Demetria are in NYC doing their thing. I hope Claudia changes her mind, but my sources say that Claudia needs to work and she always seems to have some sort of event or photo shoot lined up.
There is always the chance that when RHOA production finally gets their act together they may approach Claudia again with a bigger offer. But as of this moment, Claudia is out again.
Porsha is in the same situation as Claudia is in. With Claudia throwing in the towel and doing her own thing, this may improve Porsha’s chances. Because Porsha is working on Rickey Smiley, (when she isn’t shooting assault rifles in the dessert) she is tied to Atlanta and will be available at Bravo’s beck and call. You know, like a good little beck and call girl.
Bravo has continued to shoot test shots with Kim Fields and the new girl “Tammy” but it’s still not a done deal for any of them. There were a couple of filming trucks at Phaedra’s recently. They did not look like the usual production vans, but there is a new production crew this year so who knows. The crew was not there very long AT ALL. It might have been something for that plastic surgeon she does promos for. I’ve gotten ZERO information on Kenya, Kandi or Cynthia filming but I’m told they are all three for sure back fulltime.
It is very late in the month for things to be this chaotic. I don’t think they were prepared for negotiations with Nene to fail. That combined with a new crew has left things in a huge mess. I realize I keep bringing you slightly different tea every few days, but things keep changing every few days. At this point, I am wondering if there will even be a new season. Seriously. Wouldn’t Nene just love that. It seems the place really is falling apart without her.
