Bravo‘s Real Housewives of Atlanta isn’t scheduled to return until the Fall, but already, things are heating up for the ladies of Hotlanta. What can we expect to see when the new season premieres? We’ve got all the deets from NeNe Leakes and Kandi Burruss on everything from the beef between Kim and Kandi over Ms. Zolciak’s music career, to the yet to be confirmed new Housewife, Marlo Hampton.
1. In the past few seasons of Bravo’s Real Housewives of Atlanta, we’ve seen Grammy winning singer/songwriter, Kandi Burruss, work her magic for cast mate Kim Zolciak, helping her to produce not 1, but 2 tracks that have brought Kim lots of success — and even more money. But after being burned by her friend, Kandi says that one thing we won’t see is another Kandi Koated Kollaboration between her and Zolciak.
“I only did those two songs. We’re not doing anymore,” says Burruss, who adds that she has yet to receive her producer’s fee from “Tardy for the Party.”
2. Last season, NeNe Leakes and her husband, Gregg, went through a bit of a rough spot in their marriage (to put it mildly), with Leakes going as far as meeting with a divorce attorney to find out what her options were. But following the show’s season finale, the Reunion Special, and even throughout her stint on NBC‘s Celebrity Apprentice, it seemed that their divorce dragged on forever. Well, according to Leakes, the divorce will continue to play out in front of the cameras in the upcoming season, and fans will also get a better understanding of the “dirt” that led to their separation.
3. Though Bravo has yet to confirm the new addition to the RHOA fam, it looks like Marlo Hampton is, in fact, shooting scenes with the ladies as an official Housewife.
4. It’s rumored that Hampton, who’s engaged to NFL player Charles Grant — yes, the same Charles Grant that NeNe Leakes was reportedly stepping out with a year ago — was brought on board to ruffle NeNe’s feathers. But the network’s plan may have backfired. The ladies have apparently been getting along really well. The proof? A recent tweet from Leakes: “Thanks @iheartmarlo 4 being woman enough 2 talk 2 me, Instead of believing that thirsty wanna b.”
So, it seems that any problems that the two had, they squashed. As for the “thirsty wanna b” …. Guess we’ll have to wait to see who that turns out to be.
5. Marlo Hampton is in, but does that mean that Kim Zolciak is out? Kandi made it clear that she won’t be working with Kim this season, and NeNe Leakes didn’t mention her at all (???), which is rare, so could it be true that Kim Zolciak is no longer a Real Housewife of Atlanta and will be starring in her own spin-off? Hmm….
The new season of Bravo’s Real Housewives of Atlanta premieres this Fall on Bravo.
