Real Housewives of Atlanta is back for a seventh season! Although cast mates Nene Leakes, Kandi Burruss, Cynthia Bailey, Phaedra Parks and Kenya Moore will all be returning, Porsha Williams has been replaced by Claudia Jordan. Well, maybe not exactly.
Porsha will instead have a recurring role as a friend to the housewives. And, should we be surprised? Perhaps not.
If you all remember, Porsha had an all out brawl with Kenya Moore during the season 6 reunion show. Well, more like dragged Kenya across the floor. The assault landed her behind bars temporarily for assault.
According to Bravo TV…
NeNe has embarked on several professional pursuits: she’s starred in Cirque du Soleil’s Zumanity, launched a clothing line, and is prepping for her Broadway debut in Cinderella. Kandi Burruss is ready to expand her family with her new husband Todd Tucker, but faces unexpected road blocks along the way. Kenya Moore is also pursuing her dreams of starting a family while Porsha Stewart has joined a popular local television show as an entertainment correspondent.
But there is still plenty of drama brewing among the circle of women—and their families. Cynthia and NeNe will attempt to rebuild their friendship after having a falling out—and in one emotionally charged scene, we see NeNe fighting to hold back tears. Phaedra Parks is also struggling with raising her two boys after husband Apollo Nida was incarcerated—and he isn’t going quietly after he discovers his wife is allegedly dating a new man.
Porsha Williams will recur as a friend of the Housewives alongside newcomer actress-singer Demetria McKinney. The new season, which is sure to be filled with plenty of drama if the trailer above is any indication, kicks off on Sunday, November 9 at 8 p.m
