Porsha Williams is speaking out about her demotion on season 7 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Today when the new recycled cast photo came out, Bravo had Photoshopped Porsha out of the photo and put in newcomer Claudia Jordan. While Porsha’s role was up in the air, she was shocked to see she was only being referred to as a “friend” of the Housewives this time around!
Porsha shared a statement tonight via her rep, “This is not an easy time for me right now, but I want let everyone to know that I loved being a “Housewife” on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, and I am thankful for Bravo for the opportunity but it’s not goodbye, you will see me on the show throughout the season sharing and bonding with the other women and I promise to stay connected with my fans as I start an exciting new time in my life.”
But then in June, she announced that she was coming back for season seven, along with everyone else from the cast. Which leaves us shaking our heads and genuinely confused — not to mention intrigued — by the tweet and picture that Porsha posted very, very early this morning….
But that wasn’t the only cause for partying – as we reported yesterday Bar One is temporarily closing and reopening in a few months at a new location. Peter’s birthday party doubled as the final event at Bar One: Original Crispy!

Our favorite Atlanta bad girl, Kenya Moore, has had quite the busy summer. Not only is she filming the seventh season of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, but according to Kenya herself via Twitter, she also spent much of the summer traveling and working on a new TV show. Celebrity Apprentice, perhaps?
But that was not the only breaking news that Kenya was willing to share. Another fan asked about a book she may be writing and the answer may very well astound you.
If you recall, Peter was haggling with the landlord in court amid allegations that he owed $100,000 in back rent, fees, taxes, and utilities. The Real Housewives Of Atlanta star countered that he did pay but the landlord, but maintains the landlord wasn’t depositing the money in the bank to pay bills. Peter claims that as a result the building lapsed into foreclosure.
The owners listed the property for sale in March. Peter and Cynthia tried to buy it but someone else outbid them, so Bar One is on the move! While initially distressing given the “success” of the venue, Cynthia acknowledges it was probably for the best. “We had a lot of problems. It’s a residential neighborhood and people didn’t like the music and cars. People were always complaining.”
