Porsha Williams might not get to film Real Housewives of Atlanta inside the marital mansion she once shared with Simon Guobadia — but it won't stop cameras from rolling on her for her comeback season! Sources with knowledge of the situation told that the bitter legal battle won't delay production for Season 16, with another insider clarifying the production company won't film inside Porsha and Simon's home until a judge signs off the emergency order she filed earlier this week.

The exes have been duking it out over the prenup they signed before their 2022 wedding.

We broke the story — the reality star demanded she be allowed to film RHOA inside the residence she shared with her estranged husband, claiming it's "vital to her ability to sustain her income and employment."

Porsha was awarded possession and "sole, exclusive use" of the home last month and believed she was "free to use the marital residence as she pleases, including for filming and production purposes."

But Simon is pushing back.

But Simon's legal team fought back, demanding the court stay silent on the issue of taping in the house. The RHOA star claimed she bent over backward to accommodate her ex, promising Simon "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."

Porsha argued that his "sole purpose" in prohibiting her from filming inside the mansion was "to shield one party from disclosing sensitive, private, or personal information about the other party."

"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 wrote in her filing dated May 20 amid their ugly divorce war.

Porsha accused Simon of trying to mess with her income after dragging the reality show and Truly Original Production, the production company behind RHOA, into the legal drama. The star revealed the production company informed her "they will not proceed with filming Wife, which directly impacts and impedes ability to make a successful return to Real Housewives of Atlanta;" however, can reveal that she will be a huge presence on the show.

The judge has yet to make a decision.
