Real Housewives of Atlanta: Overview
The Real Housewives of Atlanta continue to live their fabulous lives in Georgia’s capital city in this incarnation of the popular reality TV franchise.
Relationships, a staple of the “Real Housewives” shows, take center stage as usual as the ladies’ love lives experience ups and downs.
The sassy women’s entrepreneurial spirits are also in full bloom as they juggle their personal and professional lives, along with their busy personal calendars.
In June 2015, Bravo announced that The Real Housewives of Atlanta had been renewed for an 8th season, with both NeNe Leakes and Claudia Jordan leaving the show. After NeNe’s departure, the franchise became the first Real Housewives show to not retain any original cast members.
In September 2015, Bravo announced that Porsha Williams had signed on to be a full-time housewife again, along with newcomer, actress Kim Fields.
The network also announced that previous housewife Shereè Whitfeild, together with new cast member Shamea Morton, would join the series in a supporting role, with other former cast members – Leakes, Hampton, Jordan and McKinney – all making guest appearances.
