For years fans of ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta’ have called for ‘Wife’ Cynthia Bailey to be given the boot for failing to match efforts made by the likes of cast members NeNe Leakes and Kenya Moore to push the series to higher ratings ground.
Bailey joined the hit series in its fourth season and was introduced as a close friend of the aforementioned Leakes. Today, her time as a ‘Real Housewife’ may have come to a end.
In the wake of the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” fight — where Cynthia kicked Porsha — production sources tell us show honchos are reviewing footage of the incident and weighing their options for discipline.
We’re told producers want to see just how bad (or good, for ratings) the fight was … and there’s a possibility Cynthia could be demoted to the dreaded ‘friend of the cast’ title — as opposed to full cast member. And yes, that would mean a cut in pay too.
As for why PW’s neck isn’t on the line? We’re told there’s no rule against antagonizing — hell, that’s the meat of the show — but getting physical crosses the line.
“Sources” close to the series claim Williams confronted Bailey when she learned the ‘Bar One’ belle attempted to have she and a friend booted from the boat party the ladies were filming a scene on. What happened next? Said sources say Bailey kicked the ‘Flatline’ singer in the stomach when she asked her why she’d attempted to have her removed.
