It’s finally here! The reunion show taping for The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s seventh season is being filmed on Friday in Atlanta, Georgia, according to a source speaking with RadarOnline.com. And we gathered all the juicy details we’ve learned so far about the highly-anticipated Bravo special!
Following Porsha Williams’ attack on Kenya Moore during the Season 6 reunion show taping, Bravo has beefed up security to avoid another brawl. “Big burly men will be off stage, ready to intervene at even the slightest hint of physical violence,” the insider said.
And though the ladies typically enjoy a drink or two on the show -- with Claudia Jordan even telling OKMagazine.com recently that Moscato will be one of her tools to get through the reunion taping -- the source said that no alcohol will be allowed at the reunion this year. Now that's a major change!
The absence of alcohol is said to be the call of producers since they reportedly felt that it may have contributed to the attack on Moore last year. “The alcohol had been flowing and it was a disaster waiting to happen,” the insider said, referring to the ladies’ fight.
Oh, and the taping is expected to last a whopping eight hours or longer, with the insider adding that hair and makeup is “not included in that timeline” and is “expected to take two hours for each cast member.” Sounds like someone of our RHOA faves may be needing a nap on Friday!
Producers have also made a point to reach out directly to each of the ladies to inform them that no violence will be allowed at the reunion. “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,” another source told RadarOnline.com.
The source added that the RHOA ladies “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!” Let’s just hope NeNe and Claudia are kept far away from each other! Do you think this year’s RHOA reunion show will be more dramatic than last year’s? Tweet us @OKMagazine or let us know in the comments section below.
