AceShowbiz - Filming "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" apparently is not doable while being sober for one of the cast members. A new report suggests that the cast member would be high on cocaine before filming "most" of her scenes.
A member of the show's production team claims to MTO News that one of the Housewives was caught by the production staff on multiple occasions powdering her nose prior to shooting her part. The insider doesn't reveal the name but she is allegedly not an original cast member of the show.
The current season 11 of "RHOA" stars NeNe Leakes, Kandi Burruss, Cynthia Bailey. Porsha Williams, Eva Marcille and Shamari DeVoe. As it was only NeNe who is an original cast member among them, it is safe to assume that the said high member is either Kandi, Cynthia, Porsha, Eva or Shamari.
"It's sad, but I think she has a problem," the insider shares. "She would go do her drugs, and then come out and say crazy stuff on camera."
The production team is reportedly worried about the cast member's drug use, but it appears that some others are seeing it as something not entirely bad. "It made for better scenes," the insider reasons. "When she was high, she would say outrageous stuff, so it was better for us [in production] in a way."
Doing cocaine prior to filming is apparently not something new on "Housewives" franchise. The source reveals that the drug is used rampantly on other "Housewives" shows. "[Cast member] did cocaine for her scenes. I don't know if she does it everyday like some of the 'Housewives' on the other shows," the insider says.
Debuted on November 11, season 11 of "RHOA" airs on Sundays at 8 P.M. on Bravo. Its executive producers are Steven Weinstock, Glenda Hersh, Lauren Eskelin, Lorraine Haughton-Lawson, Luke Neslage, Anne Swan, Anthony Sylvester and Andy Cohen.
