As this outlet reported, Porsha was awarded possession and "sole, exclusive use" of their marital residence last month, telling her she'd be "free to use the marital residence as she pleases, including for filming and production purposes."

"There is no logical or rational reason as to why Husband now seeks to prohibit Wife from filming at the marital residence, other than in an attempt to retaliate against Wife and intentionally restrict her ability to earn a living and expand her career," Porsha charged in her emergency order dated May 20.

Porsha stated that given Simon's "aggressively litigious behavior" of dragging the reality show and Truly Original Production, the production company behind RHOA, into the legal mess, they have advised her "they will not proceed with filming Wife, which directly impacts and impedes ability to make a successful return to Real Housewives of Atlanta."

According to Porsha, Simon's sole purpose in prohibiting her from filming inside the home is "to shield one party from disclosing sensitive, private, or personal information about the other party." She claims she's made it clear that "she would not film in areas that are personal to Husband, or areas that may contain information personal to Husband, including his bathroom, closet, office, etc." in an attempt to resolve the matter, but Simon isn't budging.

"To prevent Wife from filming her day-to-day activities and lifestyle in the residence to which she has exclusive possession, use, and occupancy is neither reasonable, nor fair to Wife, as it essentially restricts her ability to earn a living, and impedes her ability to provide a realistic view into her life, which is necessary and vital to be a successful reality TV personality," Porsha charged.
