Which star is still holding a peach?

The battle for a spot on the Real Housewives of Atlanta is heating up, and RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned the fates of Phaedra Parks, Kenya Moore and even Sheree Whitfield.

Porsha Williams’ dramatic fight with her baby daddy and money issues are expected to be part of a storyline on the upcoming season of RHOA, but an insider snitched to Radar that her job might actually be in jeopardy over the situation.

Kandi Burruss’ worst nightmare had the potential to become a reality with the return of nemesis Phaedra. Radar readers recall Phaedra was fired from the show after spreading a bizarre rumor that Kandi and her husband wanted to drug and sexually assault Porsha. Following the drama, Phaedra apologized for her comments and even met with Bravo executives to try to win back her peach.

And after burning almost every bridge on the show, NeNe Leakes realized she was friendless, so she concocted a plan to bring back a familiar face.

“Porsha’s job could be in jeopardy this season if she doesn’t deliver authentic stories,” the insider told Radar. “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.” Radar reported that she was pulling in a whopping $1.3 million for the upcoming season.
