REPORT: 'RHOA' Producers Only Plan to Keep 3 Housewives, Find Out When Filming Starts and if NeNe Leakes is in Talks to Return

It’s been a busy week for the fans of The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

First, rumors began to fly that casting was underway after it was reported that Sanya Richards- Ross and Drew Sidora removed RHOA from their respective Instagram accounts. However, Drew later claimed she never had the hashtag in her bio. Now, it’s being reported that serious decisions are being made about RHOA season 16. Plus, is NeNe Leakes in talks to return to the show?

Fans have known for a while that the RHOA producers wanted fresh faces for the show. However, exactly how many new ladies was the question, and fans wanted to know if their favs would be fired. 

Now, the Jasmine Brand is reporting some exclusive news. According to insiders, they are currently looking for brand new housewives for the show. Additionally, the RHOA producers only plan to keep three current peach holders. 

There is no word yet on which three current peach holders will remain on the show. However, the internet seems to think it would be for sure Kandi and Kenya, but the third is a toss-up based on fan reaction. 

It had been previously reported that the powers behind RHOA wanted famous women from Atlanta. This would be similar to Kandi joining the show during season two. However, the word now is that Bravo does not have the budget to pay for celebrities, but they do want well-known influencers or socialites. 

According to the report, filming should begin in the spring of 2024. If correct, this would mean that RHOA would probably air around the same time it did during its heydays, which is during the fall. It’s also important to point out that they could begin filming before they have the cast fully set as reality shows often test out new cast members by filming them with the existing cast. 

Some fans may recall that Kenya recently revealed on Carlos King’s podcast, Reality With the King, that she filmed for quite a while before being offered a contract. She didn’t actually get the contract until the incident when Porsha used the wrong title while introducing her at an event. 

The other news being reported is that NeNe Leakes is not in talks to return to RHOA. Yes, she and Bravo now follow each other on Instagram, but it seems she won’t be coming back unless something changes. However, an insider told The Messenger that Porsha has been ‘approached’ to join the show. 

So, which current RHOA peach holders would you like to see stay on for season 16?

Scrap Atlanta. Period. The glory days of the show and the interest of the city are over.

As long as Sanya’s gone, I’m good. She’s the Gina of ATL. I’ve never liked Drew, either. Her life is either truly disturbing or manufactured to be disturbing. Unlike Monica, though, it doesn’t entertain me at all.

I agree on Drew, but a Bop-less Sanya could be good.

I think it’s a mistake to keep Kenya. She’s just so hard to watch. It’s so manufactured and so negative. I miss RHOA in its heyday. I wish they’d bring back Phaedra and Porsha and Nene and Sheree and Kim and they could ALL check their “I’m famous now” attitudes at the door and have fun like the old days.

I’m neutral about Khandi, Kenya and Sheree staying. Their acts are certainly tired, but they are kind of grandfathered in by being on the show so long. I say give them one more season to do something entertaining, then fire them if they don’t. If Porsha comes back that could produce some drama between her and Kenya.

Sanya is both annoying (bop bop bop) and a bore. She has no storyline. Drew is a whackjob. Fire them.

A lot of people found her boring, but I kind of liked Cynthia. I think a show in this franchise needs one person to be the voice of reason among the chaos, which Cynthia often was. She is single again, so that could produce a dating storyline. Hopefully she has learned not to marry, or even date, a serial cheater.

I agree about Cynthia, she should have never been let go, once she was, there was such a huge divide especially between Marlo & Kenya, she was usually able to bridge the gap between them.

Auntie Oxidant November 24, 2023 - 10:43 am

I feel the same way about Cynthia. She was a nice person who was a good foil for Nene and Kenya. The shows need someone to balance out the divas.

BR November 24, 2023 - 1:03 am

I think having a soft reboot will be better than a full tbh, I mean with the full reboot of RHONY they were good, but I was bored half the time and I feel ATL would be the same. I also, don’t think Kenya or Marlo should be back, they are both the reason for the divide. I don’t mind seeing “teams here and there” (ex. talls vs. smalls) but at the end of the day I want the ladies to all be able to get along at certain points and not always be divided. Drew can also go, she just gets on my nerves.

Wish Cynthia would return, I always liked her on that show, and I know I might be minority but I would like to see NeNe back.
