The success of a Real Housewives season is based on several factors, one of the biggest being the cast. The Real Housewives of Potomac has been so successful because the cast is truly an ensemble and they all bring their A-game year after year. And we saw last year on the Real Housewives of Orange County that no matter how hard you try, some ladies will just NOT work well together to make good TV. The rumblings around the current grandma-filled season of the Real Housewives of New York is also evidence of that, especially considering they’re a teeny tiny cast of 5 this year. And that’s clearly why Bravo is taking its time to figure out the next move for the Real Housewives of Atlanta.
Last season of RHOA was a bit all over the place. The Bolo hype was real, but aside from that, the season felt disconnected and a little stale. Kenya Moore and Porsha Williams will obviously never resolve their issues, and that as a storyline is played out. Newbie Drew Sidora and her bad wig was a bit of a bust. And Kandi Burruss and Cynthia Bailey essentially brought NOTHING to the season, and 50 Cynt even had a whole ass wedding. And again I’m pleading, WHY IS Marlo Hampton STILL PEACHLESS? Make it make sense.
And there have been rumblings about who’s in and who’s out next season. 50 Cynt might be finally on the outs after a long run, and it seems like a good time for her to say goodbye. Who knows if Porsha will want to bring her messy new engagement to Simon Guobadia (and her minimum of three weddings) onto the show to be ridiculed next year.
But a new report from TMZ suggests that the Bone Collector will only return if she has a peach in her hand. Marlo should make the same demands after everything she’s given to RHOA throughout the years. Sources close to production allegedly told TMZ that Sheree is only interested in a return if she’s a full-time housewife. She tried the “friend of” thing in Season 8 and that wasn’t her speed.
The new report dispels rumors that Sheree is already 100% locked into Season 14. And honestly, I get her making the demands. It’d be her third time swooping in to bring something fresh to the show. And her newly rekindled relationship with her prison boo is obviously an interesting storyline. Maybe this time she’ll actually bring some She By Sheree joggers into the picture. But I’ll believe that as soon as I see Sonja Morgan’s toaster oven on the shelves.
TELL US – DO YOU THINK SHEREE WILL BE PICKED AS A FULL-TIME HOUSEWIFE NEXT SEASON OF RHOA? WHO DO YOU WANT TO SEE GET THE BOOT FROM THE CURRENT CAST?
