Are you ready for the ladies of The Real Housewives of Atlanta to return? Ready or not, they are back with some new Georgia Peaches to shake things up!
Cynthia Bailey, Kandi Burruss, Kenya Moore, Phaedra Parks and Porsha Williams are all returning, and RHOA alum, Shereè Whitfield, is back as a full-time ‘Housewife.’
RHOA O.G. NeNe Leakes confirmed she has not been asked back as a full-time cast member but will likely make a few guest appearances.
Sheree and Kenya continue their battle of the mansions in Season 9. As viewers saw in Season 8, both Sheree and Kenya have lavish homes under construction just down the street from one another, and the ladies have exchanged shade regarding their respective lodgings. The two wagered bets who would have their home completed by Christmas. In the teaser for the new season, Whitfield is heard saying
“The bitch is back and the Chateau is finally ready,” says Whitfield, flaunting her own newly finished mansion. “Unlike ‘More Work Needed Manor!'”
“Look, ho–” Moore says, before Whitfield fires back: “Ho?! Why you running away with your unfinished ass house?!”
Aside from her drama with Sheree — Moore is tackling major relationship drama with on-again, off-again boyfriend, Matt Jordan. In Season 8, we’ve witnessed Moore search for a meaningful relationship. Viewers were excited when she introduced down-to-earth Matt. Kenya put him through his paces but Matt appeared up for the task. Things appear to be going well at first, with Parks remarking to Moore: “Real sex does you good, girl” – but it appears their relationship has succumb to the reality TV curse.
“He kicked in my hotel room door,” says Moore in the next scene, crying. “Just mad and hitting the walls.”
In a shocking scene, security cameras capture Matt smashing out windows in Moore‘s garage!
Kenya‘s sorta BFF, Cynthia Bailey, is also going through relationship drama, as her marriage to Peter Thomas is falling apart. The couple separated and now divorce is on the horizon.
“I want a divorce,” Bailey tells her lawyer in one scene, as Parks and Moore wonder if the star has a new “love interest” after she’s seen arriving alone at someone’s apartment.
But Thomas might not be ready to move on: “I love my wife,” he tells Todd Tucker, “I was in it ’til we died.”
Over at the Burruss compound, the family celebrates the arrival of baby Ace but Kandi Burruss is fighting with her baby daddy, Russell Spencer, father to Burruss’ daughter, Riley, 14.
“You said you’re not going to chase me or Riley?” Burruss demands at one point over the phone.
“I’m not chasing nobody,” responds Spencer.
“Don’t tell me you ain’t gon’ chase my child – you should chase her!” Burruss fires back.
Another shocker comes after an old client of Parks’ arrives at her office “with a grenade.”
“He was looking for you and he was going to blow you the f— up,” warns Burruss’ mother, Mama Joyce.
