The leaves may be falling, but Shady Sunday is coming back again this Fall, with new seasons of The Real Housewives of Atlanta and Married To Medicine debuting Sunday, November 6! Bravo announced the premiere date this week, along with confirmation on who’s coming back – and what they will be sharing with us in the months to come.
Real Housewives of Atlanta season 9 will see a return of the same cast we know and love, with one notable upgrade: Sheree Whitfield is back as a full time housewife, ya’ll! Who gon’ check her BOO? Two snaps in a circle for that. Snap, and a snap. It’s Sheree’s first time holding a peach since season 4. Though hinted at heavily during the off season, NeNe Leakes is not currently on the Housewife roster (nor is Kim Zolciak) but we all know she will likely poke her head in front of the camera for a scene or two.
When Porsha Williams first appeared on Real Housewives of Atlanta, she was a modern day Stepford Wife. She did whatever her then husband Kordell Stewart wanted her to do and she ran every decision from her activities with the other Real Housewives to her wardrobe selection by him. That’s a far cry from the independent woman that’s on the show today. Not only is Porsha holding down a job at Dish Nation, but she also just purchased her first house post-divorce and posted a super cute video to celebrate.
Post-divorce, the Real Housewives Of Atlanta star has been living in a massive suburban mcmansion out in the sticks, so she’d have closets for her dogs. Porsha must have realized the underground railroad doesn’t make stops out there and decide it was time to trade-up!
Yes, Kandi Burruss does have a new music group, but she is not actually one of the performers. Instead, Kandi is the woman behind the scenes with this one. The group is called LOUD and is described on the official Instagram page as an “urban pop group.”
I’m not positive how long Kandi has been working with this group, but knowing Kandi, she doesn’t take on any project unless she is super invested so I have a feeling we should expect big things from LOUD in the future.
New York Fashion Week is in full swing and, as per usual, the reality TV stars never miss an opportunity to be photographed. Lucky us. 😉
Above: former (maybe?do I dare dream?) Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes was chosen by Malan Breton to close out his show, wearing a dress worth over ONE MILLION dollars. Why NeNe? “She embodies all women,” gushed Malan. “She really does. I think from my fanbase and other people that I know, she’s the one that’s constantly motivating women to be confident, to be who they are. And, you know, I love the Housewives franchise; I’m friends with so many of them. NeNe’s a very strong person and knows who she is. People admire her so much. For me, as a designer for women, it’s very important to me that women know who they are when they wear these pieces.”
NeNe, who likes to keep viewers guessing about whether she will return to RHOA or not each season, tweeted recently that “I wasn’t asked 2 b a full time housewife or part time but they got Sheree [Whitfield] & I think Kim Z.”
There were also rumors that Kim Zolciak might step back in as a cast member, but I don’t get why she would do that. Don’t Be Tardy seems like a way easier show to do. Unless of course, the money was better. And then there’s other original RHOA cast member Sheree Whitfield. She did return last season as a part time cast member, but that was not enough for me. I need the original ladies back on my show, but is it going to happen? NeNe shared the latest with her followers on Twitter.
