We already got a trailer for Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 13. The new episodes start on December 6. We all knew Cynthia Bailey, Kandi Burruss, Kenya Moore, and Porsha Williams are returning as full-time cast members. NeNe Leakes and Eva Marcille are out (although Eva is a bridesmaid in Cynthia’s wedding). Drew Sidora is a full-time cast member and there are a bunch of other “Friends of the Housewives.
How are they not done filming this season yet? Is it that good that they just can’t put the cameras down? Or are they not getting good enough footage so they’re hoping for more? Well, apparently, production is still going. And, no, I’m not just referring to the post-principle shooting confessional interviews. Apparently, they’re still hosting all-cast events at this point, less than a month before the season starts airing. However, they recently paused production.
Real Housewives of Atlanta is down one OG, but one thing is for sure, Season 13 is insane. Filming through a summer filled with a pandemic, fighting for racial equality, and planning Cynthia Bailey’s wedding, the ladies are back and very ready to party.
Viewers will meet two new cast members. Drew Sidora is joining the group full time and Latoya Ali will show up as a friend. Tanya Sam and Marlo Hampton, with her eternally empty hands, will appear part time as well. If a worldwide health crisis and extensive racial unrest weren’t big enough issues to address, we will also dive deep into the rabbit hole of STRIPPERGATE. Judging from the trailer and someone’s questionably placed ankles, this particular rabbit hole will be long, dark, and have dollar bills in his g-string.
Real Housewives of Atlanta is in desperate need of a cast shake up. Now, they have the chance. NeNe Leakes’ messy departure has been making headlines for some time now. At least Eva Marcille went low key about not coming back. So that leaves at least two spots open on the show.
While NeNe isn’t doing the show any favors, it looks like Eva put in a good word for two possible peaches.
We all know how much Cynthia Bailey wanted to marry Mike Hill. Even before he popped the question, she was talking about their upcoming wedding. She even created her own (over-used) hashtag #Chill, which was clever at first, but got played out after its excessive use.
Now, it’s official. Cynthia did something that no other Real Housewife has done before- she got married twice on the show. And, no, those ill-fated vow renewals don’t count. Hopefully, the day went better than when she married Peter Thomas. Her sister hid their marriage license, making it clear that both she and her mother disapproved of the union. Clearly, their instincts were on point with that one.
Usually, wedding-related storylines are simultaneously boring and annoying on Bravo shows. However, it sounds like Cynthia Bailey’s bachelorette party got pretty wild. Will we see that when Real Housewives of Atlanta returns for another season? That remains to be seen since they are still filming.
But, apparently, two cast members hooked up with each other and a male stripper at her party.
It’s looking like there’s a huge shake up headed to the Real Housewives of Atlanta this season. Not only has Nene Leakes exited stage left, but we have some new recruits! That’s right. Don’t forget we’ve already been teased with two new wives. Drew Sidora and LaToya Ali. Drew is coming to us as a friend of Kandi Burruss. My favorite trivia about her is that she acted in That’s So Raven. LaToya is a YouTube star. Welcome to 2020 y’all. Remember when housewives were all selling real estate or married to retired athletes?
Porsha Williams, who has been super busy getting this country right and tight when it comes to Black Lives Matter, is also bringing someone new to the show for season 13. I actually can’t for this new one! She sounds…perfect!
Minus Eva Marcille,
who got fired “quit’ the show, Real Housewives of Atlanta will most likely return with most of the same cast members who were on last season. Yes, we know that NeNe Leakes has been very publicly dragging out her contract negotiations, but she’s probably going to come back, because, well, as Sheree Whitfield said, she needs this check.
Porsha Williams, Kandi Burruss, and Kenya Moore all got their offer letters. Cynthia Bailey most likely did as well even though she’s only in Atlanta when she films and she has the most boring personal storyline every single season. Rumor has it, there are two women joining the cast for the upcoming season.
