*Another physical altercation has been reported from the set of Bravo’s “Real Housewives of Atlanta” shoot – this time involving a former NBA player allegedly knocking one of the women to the ground.
According to TMZ, Glen Rice Jr. – the same former Wizards player recently arrested at T.I.’s Atlanta restaurant after he being shot – was involved in a volatile scene with potential cast member Tammy McCall Browning.
Producers brought in Browning, wife of Emory University tennis coach John Browning, to test her for a full-time gig on the show. She brought with her Rice Jr., thinking his presence would boost her chances. But when the two started drinking, the cast members complained to producers that Glen was getting too aggressive and making them uncomfortable.
According to TMZ, Tammy asked Glen to leave — and as one source says, “He lost it.” Glen reportedly stepped to one of the housewives, and Tammy tried to block him, only to get knocked to the ground by Rice Jr. Tammy “smacked her head pretty hard and began to cry,” according to TMZ.
Bravo cameras were reportedly rolling during the entire spectacle, and footage of Tammy reeling in pain was used in the promo for the new season. (Scroll down to watch.)
Tammy was eventually taken to the hospital for evaluation and released. But later, she and Glen returned to the home, where the housewives made it clear Glen wasn’t welcome. An argument ensued and cops were called to the scene.
Things eventually calmed down and Glen left without further incident. But TMZ’s sources say he was told never to come back on set.
Needless to say, Tammy didn’t get a peach this season.
This news follows reports in September that Cynthia Bailey kicked fellow cast member Porsha Williams in the gut during a boat ride.
