The Real Housewives of Atlanta have been filming for season 6 since early July and it looks like there will be a new wife in town! We expect that all of the season 5 cast is returning: NeNe Leakes, Kandi Burruss, Phaedra Parks, Kenya Moore and Cynthia Bailey. Not sure if Kim Zolciak, who’s role was diminished during season 5, will make any appearances. The group has been spotted filming around town and, most recently, on a trip down to Savannah. Here’s a few pictures the ladies shared from their trip.
So, who is this mystery Housewife?! Well, Bravo has yet to confirm anything but the woman who’s been spotted with the group and tweeted about by NeNe is Mynique Smith, wife of former Atlanta Falcons player Chuck Smith. Interestingly, teammates Chuck Smith and Bob Whitfield apparently were/are close friends which means that Mynique has known former Atlanta Housewife and fellow football wife Sheree Whitfield for some time. Sheree introduced Mynique to NeNe, too, so it seems that Mynique will not be coming into this group blindly. But wait, there’s more! Rumor has it that Mynique’s husband Chuck dated Phaedra back in the day AND that there’s still some bad blood there. Savannah locals report witnessing some type of altercation while the ladies were touring the city with Kenya and Mynique apparently leading the pack vs. Phaedra. At least she knows what she’s getting herself into. Can’t wait to see how much truth is in these rumors! What we do know is that Mynique is a personal trainer and mother of three.
No official word yet about a premiere date but Kenya Moore may have spilled the beans! When asked via Twitter when we can expect to the show back on air, she replied “It prob will air in November but IDK.” And, since the last two seasons have both debuted in early November, we think this is probably a pretty safe bet. But we’ll be sure to keep you posted when we know more!
