Real Housewives of Atlanta: Season 7 Casting Rumors

Posted on Apr 23 2014 - 10:33am by M&M

 

RHOA

According to MediaTakeOut.com, Bravo has issued contracts for The Real Housewives of Atlanta season 7 cast .

They are claiming, Nene Leakes, Kenya Moore, Kandi Burruss, and Phaedra Parks have been offered contracts and will return for season 7.

Who’s Gone? Porsha Williams (no surprise there), Cynthia Bailey, and Marlo Hampton have not been offered contracts, allegedly.

According to a MediaTakeOut.com source, Bravo producers want to “shake up” the show by bringing in new housewives with REAL drama and not manufactured story lines.

Interestingly enough, when Nene Leakes appeared on Watch What Happens Live recently for a one-on-one with Andy Cohen, she made similar comments about her ex-BFF, Cynthia BaileyNeNe suggested Bravo fire Cynthia and hurled insults at Marlo Hampton.

 

Nene Leakes sentiments seemingly coincide with MediaTakeOut.com’s source. The women Nene spoke negatively of, Cynthia and Marlo, were reportedly not offered contracts for next season. Nene did state, although she did not like Kenya Moore, she was “good” for the show.

Perhaps Nene and Andy Cohen, via the WWHL interview, were informing viewers indirectly of this casting news.

However, Marlo has been quoted recently as saying we (the viewers) have not seen the last of her. “Don’t worry. I’m not going anywhere!” Marlo said in regards to her status on RHOA.

Previously, it was rumored Marlo would join the cast as a “full-time” housewife  following her explosive showdown (with Nene) at the Bailey Bowl.

Marlo and NeNe are enemies since their heated shouting match at the Bailey Bowl.

Mynique Smith, wife of ex-NFL player Chuck Smith is also rumored to join the cast as a “full-time” housewife. NeNe and Mynique are close friends. Chuck Smith claims to have slept with both Kandi Burruss and Phaedra Parks. And it’s been rumored he also slept with Nene.

          • noarguingwithstupid

            It will never be that good!!!!!

          • twifan2

            So true, NAWS! That Bar is classier than Peter’s! 😉

          • noarguingwithstupid

            I just look at Peter and yawn. I cannot imagine that his show will be interesting, but what do I know???? Bravo knows best?????

          • twifan2

            Well, I don’t think I’ll be stocking up on box wine for his show…next!

          • Tigerlily
          • twifan2

            Just drags when you have to sit AND make it look like you’re enthralled. 😉

          • noarguingwithstupid

            Enthralled is hard to fake!!!

          • twifan2

            That’s why we have our tablets AND some people are watching movies on theirs! 😮
            Time for some True Blood reruns! 🙂

          • Tigerlily

            Yup. I have Conferences. 2 or 3 days of having to look enthralled. And what’s worse I’m the one, (well my company, you know what I mean), holding it! LOL!

          • Tigerlily

            Oh Twi, you have to do an ‘Orange is the New Black’ for Tre. Something like she ate a bad sprinkle cookie and fell asleep and she goes through the TV into the OITNB show, like Alice through the looking glass. Or some kind of Twilight Zone type one where the RHWONJ merges with Orange! LOLOLOL!

          • twifan2

            Like this?

          • noarguingwithstupid

            That’s pretty scary!!!!!

          • Tigerlily

            Oh SNAP! that’s awesome! FOTFL!

          • noarguingwithstupid

            Your brains did leave you head and went into the 800 lbs of sausage you made.

          • Tigerlily

            But you gotta have food for the fambly Naws. What else are they gonna eat? Sprinkle cookies???

          • noarguingwithstupid

            She’s the “cook” Fix that sausage!!!!!

          • Babson_Chick

            Oh goodness – she thinks she has brains!! Newsflash!!!

          • Tigerlily

            But Babs aren’t brains one of the ingredientenses contained your head?
            Oh wait were talking about Tre.

          • Tigerlily

            Never Mind!

          • noarguingwithstupid

            Oh Tiger, was her character’s name Lateesha? Oh How I loved that woman, RIP

          • Babson_Chick

            Yep cause I been edumacated!!

    • ZammyB

      According to the stories online, Moose turned on Cyn-the lights ain’t on bc she hired Greg’s jump off, whom he was growing close with while him and the Nenester were on their “break”. There’s pics of them online. Other than looking pretty, Cynthia has brought NOTHING to the show for seasons. She’s one to stir the pot then pull her hands out. It’s like Peter was a better hw than she was this season.

    • Tigerlily

      Moose turned on Cynthia the one and only time Cynthia ever stepped up to her. Cynthia called Moose out for calling Peter a B!tch. It is also rumored that Cynthia is friends with the woman Greg had hooked up with while he and Moose were on the outs. Now you know Linithia will not stand for that. Only she gets to dictate who can be friends with whom.

  • noarguingwithstupid

    Please someone tell me why a woman would want to work with 3 women rumored to have slept with your husband?? Maybe it has something to do with the fact that she can’t spell her name.

    • Marsbars09

      LOL! I don’t know NAWS, but sh*t is crazy for real!

  • RealitySuxx

    Kenya brings ratings…but thus far, she has manufactured everything except her Aunt Lori!! LMAO So hopefully her 3rd season brings SOMETHING other than rent-a-_____

    • noarguingwithstupid

      Do you think Aunt Lori IS her aunt???? I think central casting.

      • twifan2

        NAWS!!! 🙂
        How’s youses today?
        Comp working better now?

        • noarguingwithstupid

          Yeppers– How are youses???

          • twifan2

            Doing ok right now. Meetings all morning long. 🙁

          • noarguingwithstupid

            Sorry 🙁 Meetings about more meetings!!

          • noarguingwithstupid

            I always found that meetings begot more meetings!!!! Like Bunnies!

          • twifan2

            Yep, having more after lunch.
            Ugh! 🙁

        • noarguingwithstupid

          I’m just weird today, that’s all!!

          • twifan2

            Same old same old then! 😀

          • noarguingwithstupid

            Yes 🙂

        • noarguingwithstupid

          Not the computer–the operator of!!!

          • twifan2

            Oh I see. 🙂

      • Marsbars09

        That’s a good question, NAWS! It’s hard to believe they are related as the behave so different from each other.

      • Bernice

        Bawhahaha!

  • Babson_Chick

    Well I’d like to see someone added that is NOT a bestie with Da Moose a/k/a Linithia – of course it seems any friends of hers don’t last very long.

    • ZammyB

      Don’t u find it funny how every HBIC of EVERY franchise has the exact same problem?
      Nene, Tre, Lisa…it’s like only the hired help are their true friends.

      • Babson_Chick

        I do believe you’re right – except we get to see Lisa’s old friends Mo and Martin and they also have her back – unlike her Bravo fake friends.

  • ZammyB

    I like this…I think they need to ask Cigawigs back AND ShebySheree! They were NOT afraid of Nene and told her what they thought. Cynthia was her side kick till recently and CynCyn doesn’t seem to be one to step in Nene’s face. She’s also very very boring! I mean like a snooze fest. N her hubby Peter-ICK- the way he has been parading is like he wants to push the women out the way to get his own peach. I’m happy Phaedra is back, she always seems to have something going on. N now with the whole Apollo is an alleged thug, via a complaint, I’d LOVE to see more Dwight. He was and will always be one of my favs.

    Also, Manlow, the one who screams she’s an escort and who has been desperately trying to be a hw, she’s like Jill Zarin who won’t just go away. It’s not like she has a mad following or is even remotely likable. She’s a leech and will attach herself to anyone who will give her air time.

  • twifan2

    I thought the housewives didn’t or did get their contracts TIL AFTER the Reunion shows had been aired? o.0

    • noarguingwithstupid

      That’s always what I thought!!!

  • WestCoastFeed

    Media Take Out is not the most reliable source but they are also saying that Kenya has been fired from Celebrity Apprentice.

    • noarguingwithstupid

      Shut the Front Door!!!!!! No kidding? I am surprised!

      • WestCoastFeed

        She is said to be back in Atlanta where she did an interview about the reunion.

        • noarguingwithstupid

          I hope we get to hear about it!! Should be a good one!

    • twifan2

      DANG!!! I was hoping she’d last longer than Brandi! :/

    • So true. I HIGHLY doubt Donald would fire Kenya so early.

      • Bernice

        Other are saying it’s true. She back in ATL! Something about stealing a phone and other conflicts.

        • Stealing a phone? SAY WHAT???

  • WestCoastFeed

    I’d really miss not be able to just look at lovely Cynthia. But she was the only reason I ever peeked at any of the Atlanta shows ever. I was never interested in the stories, I just liked to look at her beautiful face.

    • noarguingwithstupid

      I loved the clothes, the hairdos and the face. I will miss her style for sure.

      • Tigerlily

        Hi Naws. Hope you are enjoying your day.
        I like Cynthia, she was boring at times, but I liked her. Agree loved the clothes, the hair-do’s, the make-up. And just when it looked like she might have been developing a backbone too. Bummer!

        • noarguingwithstupid

          I don’t think NeNe likes to see freshly grown backbones!!!!

          • Tigerlily

            Yeah, she kind of gave that away on WWHL, huh? lololl When she threw Cynthia under the bus and then backed that bish up twice to make sure she got all her digs in!

          • noarguingwithstupid

            I guess NeNe thinks Cynthia is going to choose NeNe over her husband!

          • Tigerlily

            Exactly, cause isn’t that what grown married people do?

          • RonnieIsBack

            Yes lilke all her other friends..who do not have any men….because is sure to give them nasty and rude advise that keeps them single…she likes being the only one married….

    • noarguingwithstupid

      Maybe we will see her on Peter’s new stupid show!!!

      • RonnieIsBack

        I think if it is a spinoff, she will spend her time on that show instead of RHOA

  • I take anything MTO says with a grain of salt, but I would love for Marlo to stay on as a recurring Housewife, keep Cynthia, so we can see Cyn vs. NeNe, and keep Porsha’s ass right where she’s been all along … in the dark.

    • Tigerlily

      Ita, Breanna, excellent take on it. Marlo’s a bit cray-cray, but I like her. Really like that she’s not afraid of anybody, especially NeNe. Would also love to see Cyn vs. NeNe. That could be epic.

      • Marsbars09

        Hi Tiger! Cynthia vs. Nene isn’t going to happen as Cynthia is scared to death of Nene.

        • Tigerlily

          HI Marsie! Yeah I know but I can still dream. lol I was hoping she might grow a spine over the hiatus!
          Did you see Tre is gonna be slumming in near my old hood in Queens, NY! She has no clue what she’s in for in that neighborhood!

    • SpringBreeze14

      I agree Briana they should get rid of Phaedra and Nene and bring in some more attractive women!

      • Marsbars09

        Attractive women. LOL! OK Breanna…

      • RonnieIsBack

        LMAO I know I am tired of seeing gator…

        • SpringBreeze14

          LOL!!!

    • Here Here!

    • Marsbars09

      Breanna, Cynthia vs. Nene is not going to happen. Nene will CRUSH Cynthia like a spider. And Cynthia doesn’t have the courage to go against Nene.

      • If Cynthia gets crunk enough, she might have her little moments, but we need to see that Cynthia vs. Kandi her. Otherwise, you’re right, NeNe will squash her.

  • Babson_Chick

    Ok Old Man Winter is opening his new bar “Sports One” in Charlotte and is filming there. Hopes for spinoff similar to Vanderpump Rules – I spit out my drink on that!!

    • noarguingwithstupid

      When pigs fly!!!!

    • twifan2

      DON’T ever waste good stuff, Babs! 🙁
      Spit out mouthwash instead. 🙂

      • Babson_Chick

        sorry couldn’t help it…..

        • twifan2

          *holds moment of silence for the wasted drink* 🙁
          Ok back to drinking! 🙂
          Cheers Babs! 🙂

          • Babson_Chick

            appreciate your condolences!! Trying again with a fresh drink. Cheers Luvie!!!

          • twifan2

            🙂

          • noarguingwithstupid

            One of my most favorite episodes!!!

  • Babson_Chick

    Did AATT have a story on Southern Charm or did we just talk about it?? Have some info. about it.

    • Tigerlily

      Do tell Babs. Spill the tea.

      • Babson_Chick

        Simmer simmer – lets give the poor girl a chance. Ok, T Rav was interviewed and he said he was embarrassed by some of the things shown on the show – they showed his weakest moments not things like his boardroom for his multi-mill. real estate developement but he accepts it. He and Kat and baby Kensie live on his 60 acre Brookland Plantation – dates back to around the 1800s. They’re not living in the big house but in rooms over the barn and he said they’re devoting most of their time with their baby. He’s so thrilled with his daughter and doesn’t know why he didn’t have one sooner. He was asked if there would be a Season 2 and he thought there might be.

        Oh and he said the baby was planned – no plans for marriage at this time – they’re concentrating on their baby.

        In other lowcountry news – in Moncks Corner, police are checking out a reported meth lab (goodness I guess you can find that mess everywhere).

        • Tigerlily

          Oooh! Good stuff! I like T Rav. He’s made mistakes but he seems willing to own them. I am so glad he’s happy about his baby girl, but I’m not too sure about that Kat chippy. Hope I’m wrong.
          Gosh. yeah drugs seem to infiltrate every corner of society.
          Bad, bad stuff.

          • Babson_Chick

            guess we’ll stay tuned – just hope they keep it real and not ruin this show like most of the HW franchises – am Over those but I’ll still snark of course

          • Tigerlily

            YeahI ITA Babs. Getting quite sick and tired of b!tches, b!tchin’ about other b!tches!

          • Babson_Chick

            Love it and you’re so right!! They’re just making themselves look like dumb bitches!!

    • Hi Babs….sorry, too much going on. I promise if they are renewed for another season, I’ll cover it.

      • Babson_Chick

        No probs – I’m just a Reality Piranha – always hungry for more

  • SpringBreeze14

    This show is finished. The NAACP were so fed up with the reunion and I don’t blame them. This show will end up just like Basketball Wives Miami just watch. I am done with reality shows period and will not be supporting criminals, frauds, cheaters, etc…If I was Kenya I’d get off a sinking ship…people can hate on her all they want but without her there is no show. I would love to see her and Marlo collaborate on something cause they were my favorites.

    • Marsbars09

      Hi SB! RHOA is headed straight to hell on a high speed boat! The fate was sealed when that fight went down at the pillow talk party and now the fight at the reunion.
      I guarantee there’ll be some more phyiscal violence next season especially with Carlos King at the helm.

      • SpringBreeze14

        Carlos King seems to be taking this show in the Love And Hip Hop direction and it’s not a good look!

    • RonnieIsBack

      Agreed!

  • Babson_Chick

    Someone just made a comment to So. Charm cast – hoping their reunion was better than the Atlanta one and WSS said he was bringing his scepter. This whole Atlanta tacky reunion has made the news everywhere – hope Bravo prod. is happy with themselves – fans are leaving.

    • SpringBreeze14

      It was definitely in the paper this morning! I really believe this reunion will be the end of this show.

      • Babson_Chick

        Hope so!! Hotlanta has turned into Hot Mess!!

        • SpringBreeze14

          ATL is a hot mess all the way around! That’s why folks are leaving…LOL

  • SpringBreeze14

    Sorry to hear about Cynthia but she wasn’t aggressive enough and I couldn’t stand her sorry husband…I’m trying to figure out why people have such an issue with Kenya and Marlo when Phaedra has nothing going on…her entire existence revolves around calling other women whores when she is one, and an ugly one at that!

    • Hey!! Nene is so low-down DIRTY. To get her friend fired because she’s friends with Kenya is disgusting!

      • RonnieIsBack

        Rumor has it she and Cynthia fell out because she became friends with the lady Greg cheated with…allegedly…but we know Moose..

        • Morning Sugah!

          I read that and would not be surprised but damn to get her fired over that is crazy!!!!

          • RonnieIsBack

            Hey lady!!!!!
            I agree. This why Nene’s Karma is biting her big time in the Moose azz…she is soooo mean and sooo nasty and her Hollywood star is fading super fast…

          • Hey Honey!

            I think it’s faded. Hollywood has closed their doors on moose. Ryan Murphy blocked her number long ago. That’s why moose has been so angry and unhappy. She threw shade at Kandi’s play yet Tyler Perry (the man she claimed to have his #) was there. She’s a fucking clown.

            You have a wonderful day sis! ♥ *muah*

        • SpringBreeze14

          I heard about that…LOL…if so I think it’s hilarious!

      • SpringBreeze14

        I know and it’s childish and I just saw a tweet she posted saying her and Cynthia will NEVER be friends again. I think Cynthia has become too good for this show as well. It always seemed like she had to dim her light to fit in with the ugly chicks on this show. The ONLY reason why I think Cynthia has not got dragged is because Peter does all her work for her…if Kenya wasn’t on that show they would gang up on her, the next pretty chick. That’s how those ratchet women roll!

        • Nene is such a sad bitter selfish person. She was never Cynthia’s friend. And poor Cynthia had Nene’s back but Nene never had hers. And your right if Kenya wasn’t around Cynthia would be their target….yup!!!!

  • Huh

    I know what Bravo CAN do.. fire Nene Leakes wig. It’s Dreadful, as the infamous Dwight would say. Lol

    • Ahahaha!!! Can you please send Nene’s wig an email?

      • Tigerlily

        OT Doc but did you see Tre is having a photo-op/book signing in one of the absolute worst neighborhoods in Queens, NY on April 26th?
        Even people on twitter are warning her already!
        WCF found it and posted it on the other thread.

        It’s located underneath the El, (Elevated subway tracks.) Across the street from the neighborhood Post Office and butts up against an auto-body shop.
        And is about 5 mins from one of the largest Trauma Centers/Hospitals in Queens.
        Oh how the mighty have fallen!

    • Tigerlily

      Yes but does it have it’s own twitter account yet? lol!

      OT Doc but did you see Tre is having a photo-o/.book signing in one of the absolute worst neighborhoods in Queens, NY on April 26th?

            No Richmond Hills, Queens. Close, almost as bad. It’s a one of the poorer neighborhoods in Queens. Lots of drugs and street crimes. Shootings, auto-theft, stuff like that. The club is located underneath the elevated subway tracks, across the street from the Post Office and an auto-body shop is right next door.

    Keeping kenya may be good for ratings but bad for the fans and the network in the big picture. She is a walking liability, that will end up against bravo legal department. What haopened at the reunion is just the beginning of the whack behavior we will witness. Nene needs to humble it down a bit, and momma joyce needs to stop appearing, stealing the limelight from slot machine Kandi. Nene wanted Cynthia off and she is off, I guess.

    Mynique is just plain stupid to act like she is cool with Chuck bragging about banging Kandi and Fakedra..it was in the past, but it still is probably unconfortable…especially with them talking about his sausage…ewwww. Nene probably already knew, hell we all did, who may not be coming back…I still do not think she has any power as to who stays and who goes (if so she would have had Kenya tossed out after last season) but she wants to look like she is still Boss..no ma’ am…I wish they would get rid of Fakedra..who cares if Apollo goes back to jail?
    I guess kandi needs a friend and so does Nene…I hope they have Marlo join..but really what more can they talk about?

    • I’m REALLY hoping Marlo joins because you know next season will be “gang up on Kenya” for “provoking” Porsha and getting her fired (as if any of them give 2 Fucks about stupid Porsha). You saw Fake and Kandi joking around about strippers as soon as Porsha was out of earshot.

    I would love for Cynthia to be gone. She is USELESS and SPINELESS when it comes to her husband. I would love to see Porsha stay.
