Phaedra Parks

Sheree has a basement open house

The Real Housewives of Atlanta is long overdue for a cast shakeup. Atlanta is one of those cities that always has casting problems — the new girls tend to be one season and done. And often they rely on bringing old faces back into the mix, which doesn’t always work out the best. It’s time for some true newbies and Atlanta’s most fabulous to get thrown into the mix. And someone PLEASE get a peach in Marlo Hampton’s hands.

There’s been talk that Sheree Whitfield might be making her third return to the show for the next season. She’s been teasing it on Instagram and Andy Cohen mentioned an alum would be making a return to another city. Since Andy is not shy about his love for Sheree, it seems like she’s the safe bet to return. I’d bet on that over the idea that we’re EVER going to see joggers from She by Sheree.

Phaedra Parks

Real Housewives of Atlanta alum Phaedra Parks is a controversial character. When she first joined the show, she was hilarious with her quick one-liners and over-the-top parties put on by none other than Dwight Eubanks. When Phaedra was good, she was good — pickle photo shoots, her mortician journey, her donkey booty in a thong. But when she was bad, boy, did things get dark. We can’t forget her crusade against Kenya Moore, calling her a “whore” every chance she got, based on lies from her ex-husband Apollo Nida. And the nail in the coffin was when she spread horrible rumors about Kandi Burrus and Todd Tucker, claiming they were planning to drug and rape Porsha Williams. While Miss Phaedra might have no regrets from her time on RHOA, she probably should have a few.

As an RHOA cast shakeup is imminent, fans have been talking about who they’d like to see added back to the show. Phaedra and OG Sheree Whitfield’s names have been thrown around quite a bit. And to be honest, I was rooting for Phaedra. I miss her hilarious reads and her adorable children on my TV. But her actions are unjustifiable and she needs to put in the work to earn a return. And based on some of her recent social media activity, it’s not exactly looking like Phaedra is ready to sit back, listen and learn. Unfortunately.

Cary Deuber Hints At Possible Return To Real Housewives Of Dallas

Let’s discuss the Real Housewives of Dallas it’s precarious status after a frustrating season. Kary Brittingham dumped salsa on beds and spent the majority of the time with her new BFF tequila. Stephanie Hollman blinked a lot and defended her buddy after making a video mocking Asians, and a social media exercise in how to be a complete dick courtesy of Kameron Westcott’s family went down after the reunion. The whole thing was a mess.

Losing LeeAnne Locken to asshole comments about Kary’s heritage taught no lessons in sensitivity or owning mistakes and Season 5 fell apart after recently-tapped Tiffany Moon arrived as the first Asian cast member. Fans were appalled at how Tiffany was treated and Brandi Redmond’s self-imposed victimization of a tone deaf video no one forced her to make didn’t help. Viewers called for firings or cancelling the show completely and now rumors are swirling some ladies are out. If one door closes, another one opens, and Cary Deuber might be behind door number one.

Kandi Burruss Announces She Will Produce Her First Broadway Play

I firmly believe there is literally nothing Kandi Burruss can’t do. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star is a singer, songwriter, producer, restauranteur, actor, businesswoman, philanthropist — the list goes on. She’s also a badass mom and wife to Todd Tucker, and they are the definition of a power couple. Even though some people (*cough cough* NeNe Leakes) question Kandi’s career or come up, she remains unbothered and always finds a way to make her coin. The moral is don’t start none with Kandi and there won’t be none. Hear that, Phaedra Parks?

Season 13 of RHOA showed me that while I love Kandi, she might be beyond the show. While she used to get in blow-up fights with the cast, now she seems calm and collected. Well, unless you’re messing with her food. She doesn’t seem to hold grudges, forgiving Porsha Williams after all their history. She knows the definition of girl code and could teach Kenya Moore a thing or two about loyalty. Plus, she’s the Mistress Angel and has always been true to who she is on the show, through the good times and the bad. (Those rough days of Todd vs. Mama Joyce have stuck with me).

Cynthia Bailey Removes RHOA From Instagram Bio Sparking Rumors She’s Leaving The Show

After Season 13 of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, the cast is clearly due for a shake-up. Marlo Hampton needs a peach in her hand, to fix the “snoozefest” of a show. Kenya Moore and Porsha Williams’ long-time feud has been overplayed. And we even had #Bologate and Prophet Lott, yet the season just didn’t hit like the good old days. But I gotta give the ATL ladies a break — the COVID-19 pandemic took its toll on all Bravo shows. And it definitely wasn’t the worst — looking at you, Real Housewives of Orange County.

There’s been a lot of buzz about who will appear on RHOA Season 14. LaToya Ali may be one and done after her explosive debut. There are always rumors swirling that Phaedra Parks and/or Sheree Whitfield will make a return. Maybe even NeNe Leakes, never say never. And it’s obvious some of the girls just need to go.

Even though Cynthia Bailey went forward with her superspreader wedding last year, she brought very little to the show. She really has been chilling on the sidelines since the days of Peter Thomas causing drama are behind her. Just look at the last reunion — she barely said a peep. Aside from defending having a huge wedding in the midst of a global pandemic, so big that even Bravo bailed on filming.

Andy Cohen

The Bravo gods have answered our (my) prayers — Heather Dubrow is returning to the Real Housewives of Orange County. The news of Fancy Pant’s long-awaited return comes along with some arguably even better news — Kelly Dodd and Braunwyn Windham-Burke are OUT for good. No more Kelly Fraud’s nasty comments and total ignorance. Or Braunwyn’s over-the-top narcissism. Both ladies were eyeing for a return, but the fans have spoken. And Boringwin really uprooted her entire life as she knew it for a TV show that doesn’t want her back. What a shame. Oh, and Elizabeth Lyn Vargas is out after one season, but we hardly got to know her anyway.

The Fancy Pants news is just too much to bear. We’ll finally see the completed Dubrow family mansion. Terry Dubrow, despite duping fans about Heather’s return, will be back on our screens to provide plastic surgery advice and corny dad jokes. And this could lead to a potential Tamra Judge return, but no news has been announced yet. CHAMPS FOR EVERYONE, except maybe Shannon Beador.

Bethenny Frankel Sonja Morgan RHONY Real Housewives Of New York

After a year in a pandemic, a United States election, and a massive boost to the Black Lives Matter movement, reality TV is looking a little differently these days.  True Bravo fans will remember the 2016 Real Housewives of Atlanta episodes where Phaedra Parks and some of the other wives attended Black Lives Matter events. Four years later, these other franchises are still playing catch up. That includes the iconic Real Housewives of New York who finally welcomed their first Black cast member after eleven seasons! Welcome to a more accurate reality on your reality TV screen!

For boasting a life of worldliness and civility, Luann de Lesseps sure does seem lost. Though, who can forget that dreadful Diana Ross costume she tried to pass off just a few seasons ago? Shockingly, Sonja Morgan is coming through in a way I don’t think anyone predicted. Sonja was both eloquent and accurate when taking up for the movement and newest Housewife, Eboni K. Williams in last weeks’ episode.

Porsha Williams Real Housewives Of Atlanta RHOA

Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams is truly living in her own fantasy universe. She was given a huge rock from HER FRIEND Falynn Guobadia’s soon-to-be (keyword: soon) ex-husband Simon Guobadia after ONE MONTH of dating. Yes, after she spent Season 13 teasing a potential reunion with Hot Dog Dennis McKinley. And (poorly) denying any hoe-like activities with Bolo at Cynthia Bailey’s bachelorette party. Welp, now she’s engaged again, and frankly, I’m exhausted.

Porsha and Simon are on the same planet, posting on Instagram like they’re the C-List version of Bennifer or something. Despite the cheating allegations, a questionable timeline and other women coming out of the woodworks. I’m with Marlo Hampton on this one, the whole thing is just a big red flag.

Despite Porsha’s total lack of respect for her friend Falynn, who she brought on the show and didn’t even negotiate a contract for, she’s still being rewarded. Kenya Moore is still the villain on RHOA for hogging a crabcake and stirring the pot. At least she can own up to her mistakes when she crosses the line with someone’s man. Porsha’s got a 3-part spinoff coming this summer and is toying with the idea of a Bravo wedding. We already know her lapdog Shamea Morton will be a bridesmaid since we can point our fingers at her for getting this whole mess of a relationship started.
