With all the bickering with Phaedra Parks, naturally we all assumed that's who NeNe wanted exiled to the Island of Lost Housewives. But in a preview of this Sunday's hour-long WWHL special, NeNe reveals it was actually Porsha Stewart she wanted fired!
"Yes, I did feel that Porsha at that time needed to leave the show because there was something – I'm a good judge of character; I've been blessed, child, I've been given a gift – and I kept feeling like Porsha and Kordell were not being real enough," NeNe admits.

Speaking of Porsha, rumors recently arose that she and Kordell Stewart were faking their marital problems and divorce so she could have a fighting chance at remaining on the show with a new storyline.
Porsha's rep emphatically denies the allegations to HipHopHollywood. "That's absolutely ridiculous. Given everything this abrupt filing has put her through in the public, she would never bring something like this on herself, ESPECIALLY with them having a child in the house. She wishes things could have been different but that simply is not possible."
However Kordell himself seems to be making conflicting statements. Is he regretting ending his marriage with a surprise divorce filing? He recently posted an instagram photo (below) of a tropical island and wrote: "What ya’ll think???? Here to work it out? Ya’ll have been supportive so I’m asking, may not work, but I’m going to try. All the prayers are appreciated."
Unfortunately it seems he forgot to clue Porsha in on the plan. She responded with "I wish." Further down the comment thread Kordell elaborated that he wanted Porsha there, but hadn't actually invited her. This man needs to stay off twitter!
A friend told Sister2Sister, that Kordell does love his wife but the show put too much strain on their relationship. “Kordell really loves Porsha and it got to be too much for them. It wasn’t something planned for the show.”
A source confirms to WetPaint that Porsha was definitely not using a divorce storyline as leverage to return to RHOA. "This is the toughest time in Porsha’s life,” the source shares. “Not only did her marriage fail, it’s happening in front of the whole world. This is not made for TV. It’s real and it’s incredibly painful.”
NeNe appears on Watch What Happens Live Sunday, May 5th at 8pm for an hour-long special sit-down!
