RHOA Shake-up: Who’s In, Who’s Out?
With The Real Housewives of Atlanta (RHOA) undergoing a major shake-up, fans are eagerly speculating about who will be returning for Season 16. While Kandi Burruss recently announced her departure, rumors suggest that Kenya Moore and Porsha Williams might be making comebacks.
NeNe Leakes’ Return Unlikely
However, one familiar face that won’t be gracing our screens is NeNe Leakes, one of the most iconic Real Housewives. During an appearance on The Tamron Hall Show, Moore addressed the rumors surrounding Leakes’ potential return.
“According to our boss, that door is closed,” Moore revealed, referring to the show’s producers. However, she added, “You never know” what could happen.
Why Leakes’ Return is Unlikely
Leakes’ departure from RHOA after Season 12 was marred by a contract dispute and a subsequent lawsuit against Bravo for creating a toxic work environment. Given this history, it’s understandable why producers would be hesitant to bring her back.
Moore Open to Returning, but Focused on Other Projects
Moore also discussed her own future with the show, revealing that the cast started making other plans when the network took too long to make decisions about Season 16. She focused on other projects, as did Burruss, who reportedly declined a contract renewal offer.
RHOA Season 15: A Disastrous Run
The previous season of RHOA was widely considered a disappointment, with storylines and feuds that failed to resonate with viewers. This has led to speculation that Bravo will take a different approach for Season 16.
Could Porsha Williams Save RHOA?
With Williams having been off the show for a couple of years, her return could bring fresh storylines and excitement. However, the rest of the cast needs to be strong to help the show recover from its recent slump.
Stay Tuned for Updates
Fans will have to wait for official updates from Bravo regarding the show’s future. In the meantime, they can speculate and hope for a more exciting and engaging Season 16 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta.
