*Apparently, everyone just wants to move on from the fight between Porsha Williams and Cynthia Bailey on the set of “Real Housewives of Atlanta.”
As previously reported, the two were on a boat with co-stars Kenya Moore and Kim Fields when they started arguing. It escalated to Cynthia kicking Porsha in the stomach, according to TMZ.
A source tells E! News that Porsha is not planning to press charges against her co-star.
“Everyone just wants to put it behind them,” the insider says. “There’s a lot of filming left to do and they just want to move forward.”
So production continues on Season 8 of the Bravo series. Two new cast members, Amiyah Scott and Kim Fields, have joined the cast following day-one Atlanta Housewife NeNe Leakes’ departure after seven seasons.
Scott is a transgender model (born as Arthur and raised in New Orleans). Earlier this month, a source told E! News that she had not been offered a series regular role as a Housewife, but had begun filming with the ladies.
“Amiya is a friend of Kenya’s,” a source told E! News exclusively, “and she was at an event that Kenya threw last night. So she filmed last night. Other than that, she’s having conversations with production. Talks are happening but it’s too soon to say what will come of it.”
Meanwhile, Fields has been named a Housewife and the plan is to have her very much be a part of the new season. The show’s other stars, including Kandi Burruss, Kenya Moore, Cynthia Bailey, and Phaedra Parks, are expected to stay on as main cast members while Claudia Jordan is leaving after just one season.
