Cast Changes in Season 16
With Kandi Burruss leaving, the cast of The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 16 is taking shape. After months of uncertainty, details about who will be back are emerging.
Kenya Moore and Porsha Williams are rumored to be part of the Season 16 cast. Bravo usually doesn’t comment on casting rumors, but updates are expected once contracts are signed.
Kenya Moore’s Return
Kenya Moore’s return is no surprise. She’s a long-serving cast member who always brings drama to the show. Losing her at the same time as Burruss would be a big blow to the show.
Porsha Williams’ Return
Porsha Williams joined RHOA in Season 5 and spent eight seasons as a full-fledged cast member. Her feud with Moore is a concern, as it could hinder the show’s rejuvenation. However, Williams has remained in the Bravo family with spinoffs, indicating that she’s always welcome.
Other Cast Changes
Other cast changes are expected in Season 16. Sheree Whitfield could return, but newer additions like Drew Sidora, Marlo Hampton, and Sanya Richards-Ross are less likely to return.
RHOA Season 15’s Lackluster Performance
RHOA Season 15 lacked excitement, with storylines going nowhere and developments being removed after promotion. The editing is an issue across the Real Housewives franchise, and the network will want to improve it after the recent season’s poor reception.
When Will Season 16 Air?
The Real Housewives of Atlanta is currently on hiatus at Bravo. New episodes are expected to return in late 2024 or early 2025.
Can a Revamp Save RHOA?
The Real Housewives of New Jersey is an example of a show that has successfully freshened things up. RHOA needs to take risks to stay relevant. Whether the latest changes will be worthwhile remains to be seen.
