Good news, RHOA fans! All your favorite Atlanta Housewives are returning for Season 7 and, today, Bravo announced the premiere date!
The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 7 will premiere Sunday, November 9 @ 8pm ET/PT!!
Yes, the ladies are back and bringing plenty of drama to the new season! Here’s how Bravo describes things:
A lot has changed since we said goodbye to the women after the epic Season 6 Reunion. NeNe has embarked on several professional pursuits: she’s starred in Cirque du Soleil’s Zumanity, launched a clothing line, and is prepping for her Broadway debut in Cinderella. Kandi Burruss is ready to expand her family with her new husband Todd Tucker, but faces unexpected road blocks along the way. Kenya Moore is also pursuing her dreams of starting a family while Porsha Stewart has joined a popular local television show as an entertainment correspondent.
But there is still plenty of drama brewing among the circle of women—and their families. Cynthia and NeNe will attempt to rebuild their friendship after having a falling out—and in one emotionally charged scene, we see NeNe fighting to hold back tears. Phaedra Parks is also struggling with raising her two boys after husband Apollo Nida was incarcerated—and he isn’t going quietly after he discovers his wife is allegedly dating a new man.
Sounds pretty epic, right?? Well, there’s more! We are also being introduced to two new cast members this season! Meet Demetria McKinney and Claudia Jordan:
Demetria McKinney (photographed above, right) is an award-winning actress and singer who resides in Atlanta with her 14 year old son. Best known for her role as Janine Payne on the hit TBS sitcom Tyler Perry’s House of Payne, Demetria has also appeared in numerous stage plays including Meet the Browns, Why Did I Get Married, The Mountaintop and Dreamgirls. She currently co-stars on the TV One sitcom The Rickey Smiley Show and has a recurring role on Lifetime’s Devious Maids.
Even though her acting career keeps her busy, Demetria always makes time for her first love—music. She recently released her first EP Officially Yours to rave reviews. Demetria has been dating TV executive Roger Bobb for several years and would love to take their relationship to the next level. Balancing her career and relationship while raising a son as a single mother hasn’t always been easy, but Demetria strongly believes family comes first.
Claudia Jordan (photographed above, left) is a TV and radio host who recently moved to Atlanta from Los Angeles. She is currently working as a co-host on The Rickey Smiley Morning Show and a frequent contributor on HLN’s Dr. Drew On Call. Before she became a media maven, she was a “Miss Rhode Island Teen USA” and “Miss Rhode Island USA” title holder. Claudia has also been a model on The Price is Right and Deal or No Deal. Most recently, the Rhode Island native appeared on NBC’s All-Star Celebrity Apprentice.
Claudia loves the social scene Atlanta has to offer and is good friends with Kenya Moore who enjoys having such a fun friend around.
Word is that Claudia will be a full-time Housewife while Demetria is joining in a supporting role. Also in a supporting role this season? Porsha Williams! That’s right, Porsha won’t be holding a peach this season after having been demoted. Last year’s reunion antics may have had something to do with that decision…who knows.
But, I know what you really want to see here…the RHOA Season 7 first look trailer! Here you go:
So, what are your thoughts about The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 7? The new cast? Porsha’s demotion? Will you be watching on November 9?
