The Real Housewives of Atlanta‘s season seven reunion will be taped in Atlanta this Friday. However, unlike previous reunions, there’s going to be tons of security to ensure nothing too eventful, like violence, goes down.
The Real Housewives reunion “will have a lot of security,” an insider told Radar Online on March 25.
“Big burly men will be off stage, ready to intervene at even the slightest hint of physical violence.”
According to the report, the Real Housewives reunion fight between Porsha Williams and Kenya Moore last season made for ratings gold, but garnered tons of bad press for the network. In response, Bravo has banned alcohol completely from Friday’s Real Housewives reunion filming in Atlanta, and when it comes to the cast’s behavior, production is doing what they can to avoid violence at all costs.
“Producers have drawn a very hard line in the sand, and have reached out to each of the ladies making it very clear there will be no violence tolerated. The cast members will be required to sit in their assigned seats, and not allowed to get up until there is a break, or unless given permission. Any deviation will result in immediately being removed from the filming, no questions asked!”
As the Inquisitr previously reported, Bravo has yet to confirm the eighth season of the Atlanta installment of the Real Housewives, but that hasn’t stopped casting rumors from swirling. In one of the most recent reports, a source claimed NeNe Leakes was ready to leave the show and focus on other business ventures, including her acting career and new clothing line.
Last month, the source told Radar Online that Leakes was doing the “bare minimum” of her contract, with regular Bravo blogs and an occasional tweet, encouraging fans to watch the Real Housewives, as her co-stars went above and beyond to promote the series seventh season.
As for why Leakes was limiting herself, the source claimed she had grown to “hate” the Real Housewives, and felt Claudia Jordan and Kenya Moore were “bringing the show down.”
In a separate interview with Radar Online, Leakes spoke of potentially leaving the Real Housewives, claiming she was unsure if she could handle another year with Bravo. At the time, Leakes also suggested she may move on to her own spinoff series.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta season seven airs on Sunday nights at 8 p.m. on Bravo.
