It’s time to board the Bravo train to Hotlanta!

The first preview of The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 8 is out and the ladies, and newcomer, Kim “Tootie” Fields, are bringing the drama. Best line is when former “Facts of Life” star, Kim, says, “Are we grown-ass women talking like this?” This statement can universally be applied to everyone of the Real Housewives franchises, don’t you think?

Who’s in and what’s new…Kandi Burruss is pregnant and considering Mama Joyce as their nanny; Cynthia Bailey is dealing with husband Peter Thomas getting all up in another girl’s lips; Porsha Williams wants sperm to get all up inside of her; Phaedra Parks is contemplating divorce from the imprisoned Apollo Nida; Kenya Moore is on a dating rampage trying to find love; and returning veteran, Sheree Whitfield still has not completed Château Sheree. Newcomer, Shamea Morton will replace Claudia Jordan.

NeNe Leakes is out (Enter applause here!) — and reported previously, several women including Kim Fields, Sheree Whitfield and Marlo Hampton were are all competing for the coveted peach for the upcoming season. In addition, newcomer, Tammy McCall Browning will be featured on a few episodes as a friend of a housewife.

Bravo’s press release states:

After months of overcoming numerous hurdles to conceive, Kandi and Todd are ecstatic to welcome their first child together. However, Kandi is faced with juggling the highs and lows of pregnancy coupled with a busy life as a hard-working career woman. Ready for her fresh start, Kenya has decided to build the ultimate dream home, “Moore Manor,” all while continuing her quest for love. Meanwhile, Cynthia is on-the-go more than ever, but unsettling rumors surrounding her marriage threaten to cause a strain on her relationship with Peter. With Apollo still incarcerated, Phaedra adjusts to life as a single mother while maintaining her successful career, including potentially purchasing her first funeral home. Embracing a new chapter, Porsha is currently dating a new beau as her business ventures continue to thrive. Actress and director Kim Fields joins the ladies this season and although she is new to the mix, she is no stranger to the spotlight. Fan favorite Shereè Whitfield is back on the scene, while newcomer Shamea Morton joins these feisty Southern ladies for another unforgettable season.

A source close to production informs us that Sheree Whitfield is not an official housewife, she’s on “friend of a housewife” status for now. And, Sheree has NOT signed a contract instead she signed a payment agreement with True Entertainment. Now, this could change as the season progress as we saw in season 7 when Claudia Jordan went from “friend of” status to full-time housewife.

Check out the exclusive season 8 first look below:

This season is filled with fun, fighting, friendship, fertility, and basically a lot of f’ed up stuff. Season 8 begins on Sunday, Nov 8 on Bravo.
