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 Bailey. NeNe 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.
