It’s looking a bit like deja vu on the set of the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” right now as “breakout star” Kenya Moore is once again caught up in a little drama over money. Basically she’s saying she’ll return for a sixth season of the show, but only if the money is right. I.e. you know she’s probably asking for a major raise since she was the most talked about cast member this season.
I’m actually not mad at Kenya for that, I’m just curious how much she’s asking for — you know mama thinks she’s the pioneer of all things black and fabulous. According to TMZ, the beauty pageant queen is “finalizing talks with Bravo to come back next season, but her paycheck has become a sticking point in contract negotiations.”
As expected, TMZ also says the issue will be settled very soon and her return is pretty much a done deal, which means the network is not trying to let that ticking time bomb of a cast member go and will probably pay her whatever her crazy heart desires to see her cause more mayhem another season.
Surprisingly, at least to me, Porsha Stewart is expected to come back too, but in a smaller role. If anything, I thought she either wouldn’t return in order to reconcile with Kordell, or she’d have an even bigger part in the case, being that her current marital troubles are the stuff reality TV perfection is made of. I thought for sure producers would be all over her divorce battle for the sake of ratings, but perhaps Porsha made the decision to scale back considering reality TV was likely a major culprit in the breakdown of her marriage. Whatever the reason, let’s hope things work out for the best for her.
BTW, are you glad Kenya’s coming back next season?
