It looks like there could be a major cast shakeup on Real Housewives of Atlanta as the ladies start filming for Season 12, and new mom Porsha Williams could be in danger of losing her peach amid the recent drama with her baby daddy, Dennis McKinley. Has his cheating scandal put Williams on the RHOA chopping block?
According to Radar Online, the drama between Williams and McKinley will be a significant part of her storyline in the upcoming season – and Bravo cameras have already caught a major fight between the couple that will appear on Season 12 – but an insider says the situation could end up costing Williams her job.

“Porsha’s job could be in jeopardy this season if she doesn’t deliver authentic stories,” claims the insider. “She can’t act like Kenya and hide things from the show. If she does, she could lose her status as a full-time housewife, which would cost her a lot of money.”
Williams’ salary for Season 12 is reportedly $1.3 million, which she desperately needs after being hit with a $240,000 tax lien earlier this year.
Things appeared to be going well for Williams at the end of Season 11. She was about to give birth to her daughter, Pilar Jhena, and she was engaged to McKinley and planning her wedding. The couple even starred in their own spinoff Porsha’s Having a Baby.
But, in recent weeks that has all changed amid rumors that McKinley was unfaithful. YouTuber Tasha K. has also claimed that McKinley is abusive, has a cocaine problem, and is a shady businessman who loves get-rich-quick schemes.
Tasha K.’s source also claimed that McKinley is a “clout chaser” who is using Williams to promote his new streaming service, and this has caused problems with her employer.
“Dennis got into it with one of the Bravo executives because he just started a streaming service. Porsha is going to be the brand. She going to help him make more money. He’s getting the publicity that he always wanted to help him continue to carry the brand,” Tasha K reported.
McKinley has denied the cheating rumors, and one of the women he allegedly hooked up with – WAGS Atlanta star Sincerely Ward – says that she has never met McKinley and would never do that to Porsha Williams.
As for the rest of the RHOA cast, Phaedra Parks is not coming back despite the rumors that she was returning. Kenya Moore will be a part of the cast for Season 12, but she took a massive pay cut and will get limited screen time, and NeNe Leakes has burned so many bridges, it isn’t clear how she will fit in.
New episodes of Real Housewives of Atlanta will return to Bravo later this year.
