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.
In her blog, Teresa shares that she’d hoped for a nice relaxing getaway to Vermont. Instead, there was “drama, drama and more drama!” Having made up with Jacqueline before the trip, Teresa hoped her frenemy would behave herself. “But everything that happened with her on this episode made me start to question her again. Whenever there was drama on this episode, Jacqueline was involved,” she admits. Too true.
In a recent interview, she attributes her success, in part, to the sage advice of wildly popular talk show host Ellen DeGeneres. Some might recall that Bethenny visited Ellen on her talk show back in the day when Bethenny Ever After was filming and then helped Bethenny get her own talk show off the ground. At the time, Bethenny’s own (now failed) talk show was poised to go live, and the advice Ellen gave her then was, as I recall, to “just be herself.” Unfortunately, this advice didn’t work out so well for Bethenny in the end.
While we were home Sunday night filing our nails and taking out the garbage like regular people, Lisa Vanderpump and daughter Pandora Vanderpump Sabo were rubbing elbows with Hollywood elite at the Emmy Awards. You know, just another day in the life of Bravo royalty!
On the red carpet, Lisa took the time to dish on her two Bravo shows poised to premiere in the next few weeks: Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Vanderpump Rules. Of VPR, Lisa shares that it will be a “tumultuous ride” as the cast marches its way toward the wedding between Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz. But, Lisa admits, the cast still love each other despite their endless bad choices and backstabbing ways!
Bethenny gushes about Shields, “He’s exceptionally brilliant and funny, and a very major family person.” Bethenny has known Shields as “a friend” for 27 years, and shares that her daughter Bryn met him when she was a baby. She says Bryn thinks “he’s very silly and fun and nice.”
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.”
