Bravo is yet to announce a premiere date for The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 5. But fans of this Bravo franchise can expect it to re-launch in October or November.
They can also expect two fresh faces to get in on the annual drama:
- Kenya Moore: A 5’10” former Miss USA winner who has appeared in Waiting to Exhale and Deliver Us from Eva, among other films.
- Porsha Williams-Stewart: The wife of retired NFL quarterback Kordell Stewart and granddaughter of Civil Rights Leader Hosea Williams.
The aforementioned women will join regulars Phaedra Parks, Kandi Burruss, Kim Zolciak, Nene Leakes and Cynthia Bailey, although sources say Zolciak's role will be greatly reduced due to her pregnancy.*
But the tension between Kim and NeNe will remain, as an insider tells In Touch they "are still not speaking," while Kenya and Porsha "will add some very needed new drama and storylines."
We have no doubt. Producers are likely finalizing their scripts as we type.
*UPDATE: Zolciak has given birth to a son!
