Check out the promo pics and video for season 5 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Also, NeNe Leakes, reality star and now big time Hollywood actress and her New Normal cast mates grace the pages of the October 2012 issue ofVogue magazine.
Yes Gawd Hunty. Real Housewives Of Atlanta Atlanta is back. Season 5 of the #1 Housewives franchise is scheduled to premiere Sunday, November 4th at 9pm. Bay-Bay, if y’all thought The Doll was crazy over Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, you ain’t seen nothing. I go totally bananas over RHOA, not to mention that I am personally connected to several of them
Notice anything missing from the above photo? Let me help you out, Kim Zolziak. If you have not heard by now, Kim is no longer a leading lady on RHOA. There has been all kinds of T’s going around as to why. Here is what Bravo had to say:
Our recently married Housewife Kim is also busy expanding her family, but manages to make it out for the ladies’ events — even ones where NeNe is the guest of honor. Will these two ever make up or will she further distance herself from the group in favor of her family and man?
Now here are the real T’s. Kim is happy, and has everything she wants and could hardly careless about Bravo, the check, or the other ladies. Earlier and the year, several of the housewives staged a filming boycott because they were doing the bulk of the filming and realized that Kim was not filming as much. The other ladies general sentiments were “I’ll be damned if she is not having to tape as much as we are and collect a check equal to ours or larger”, as was the case last season considering that Kim was pregnant. Not to mention, during much of the filming of season 5 she was pregnant again. Bravo under the pressure of the other women tried to get Kim to film as much as possible, but kim wasn’t having it. Having a husband, kids, and residual monies from Big Papa, Kim was like “screw it, you better use what little footage you have.” Making Kim a B character was the nest way to somewhat keep her involved for the sake of keeping her fan base happy as well as keeping the other ladies happy.
While I am spilling The Real T, it is not secret that Sheree’ got fired. No matter how she tries to slice it and dice it, he was fired. Long story short, the execs at Bravo worked with Sheree’ relentlessly in an effort to help her build a solid story line. Mama failed to produce. Additionally, she had the nerve to roll up in the Bravo TV offices and ask for more money because NeNe and Kim had being succesful in doing so, Bravo told her to go kick rocks.
Alright, Out with the old and in with the new. Meet the two newest additions to the RHOA cast. Porsha Williams-Stewart & Kenya Moore. Check out their Bravo Bio’s:
- Active Philanthropist
- Exploring a Music Career
Porsha Stewart is a saucy southern lady and embodies the essence of a confident woman wise beyond her years. A true “Georgia Peach,” Porsha was born and raised into a prominent family in Atlanta and is the granddaughter of Civil Rights leader and philanthropist, Rev. Hosea Williams. Residing in the exclusive Buckhead community in Atlanta, Porsha is a recent bride to former NFL football player Kordell Stewart and takes prides in being a new mom to her stepson, Syre.
Porsha always keeps family first, but in her spare time she manages to nurture a budding music career as well as various business ventures. Porsha will be taking her family’s legacy and enriched heart for giving into her new family with the unveiling of Kordell & Porsha Stewart Foundation for Cancer Research. Porsha also enjoys spending time outdoors, reading, yoga, and afternoon dips in her pool. Well-known on the Atlanta social scene, some might say Porsha has it all.
- Former Miss USA
- Had Roles in ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’ and ‘Waiting to Exhale’
Kenya Moore is the triple threat with beauty, brains and talent. Originally from Detroit, the former psychology major left Michigan with fierce drive and determination to build her own unique brand.
Perhaps most recognized for being crowned Miss USA, Kenya is also known for acting and having worked with many “A” list stars, is a film and TV producer and CEO of Moore Vision Media. She finds Atlanta to be the perfect environment to grow a business and a rich social life. Aside from being a serious career woman, Kenya enjoys writing, hitting the gym, and never passes up an opportunity to speak her mind. A hopeless romantic, Kenya is ready to start a family with her Mr. Right.
So this is the last ounce of T I am going to poor. NeNe Leakes in an effort to clean up her reality tv image and better paint herself in the image of a hollywood star is being nice this season. Word has it that Kandi will come off these season more as the “main” character and that Kandi has replaced NeNe in the villain role. Kenya does not like Porsha and beats up on her the entire season. We wont be seeing any of Marlo Hampton and the remainder of the drama will be typical.
I definitely can’t wait for the season to start. The RealHousewives Of Atlanta are my guilty pleasure. Get into the first video promo:
With most folks asserting that NeNe Leakes is the first reality tv star to crossover into mainstream Hollywood, the newly established actress has landed on the pages of the October 2012 issue of VOGUE. She is pictured with the cast of her new TV show “The New Normal” which stars Justin Bartha, Andrew Rannells, Georgia King, Bebe Wood and Ellen Barkin.
