Girl! Bravo released the trailer for season 7 of “Real Housewives Of Atlanta” and if you thought the show reached its peak seasons ago, you’re in for an explosive surprise.
NeNe Leakes, Phaedra Parks, Kenya Moore, Kandi Burruss, Cynthia Bailey and Porsha Williams are all back with our favorite husbands and newcomers Claudia Jordan, Demetria McKinney. Between Apollo’s wild encounter with Phaedra before turning himself in to serve an eight year sentence and Phaedra’s attack on Kenya after being accused of cheating–it’s clear their storyline will be the highlight of the show. But, that isn’t to discredit the rest of the cast who are equally going through their own struggles.
After watching the trailer for the fifth time, we’ve pulled out some notable moments that we’ll be looking forward to in the season.
Kandi’s Mom & Todd Tucker’s Mom Still Don’t Get Along
Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker may be married, but their mothers just can’t get along. Mama Joyce is still talking about that a** whooping she “almost laid” on Todd’s mother and Todd’s mother is still talking about punching Mama Joyce in the face. Sigh. They are way too old for this. Our fear is that Todd will eventually get fed up with the ridiculous drama and leave Kandi all together. We pray otherwise.
Cynthia Bailey Burns Her Friendship Contract
Honey, Cynthia is not here for the BS with NeNe Leakes this season–she got a dose of independence and has no intentions on coming back. in case you don’t remember, NeNe and Cynthia severed their friendship last season after NeNe said Cynthia’s husband Peter was acting like a “b*tch.”
This time around, it appears that Cynthia grew a backbone (and a blonde weave) and refuses to rekindle her friendship with NeNe. “I love you Cynthia, you’re my sister” NeNe said while shedding tears. By the looks of it Cynthia gave zero f*cks. “I’m just seeing a Cynthia I didn’t know existed,” NeNe revealed. In the next scene we see Cynthia seemingly deleted NeNe from social media. At one point, Cynthia burns her “friendship” contract on the kitchen sink.
Oh how the tables have turned!
Claudia Jordan Is Messy Boots
Like us, you may still be questioning Claudia Jordan’s presence on the “Real Housewives Of Atlanta,” (in case you’re wondering, she made an appearance on “Deal Or No Deal” and “The Apprentice”) but we think we see what producers saw in her when she auditioned for the role–she’s about that turn up life. Claudia is clearly the troublemaker this season. We think it’s safe to say she has it out for Porsha and NeNe. She gets into it with both of the ladies in the two-minute trailer which is bold because NeNe does not play games! Don’t come for her unless she sends for you.
It appears that Claudia is trying to be the next Mrs. Kordell Stewart and scores Kordell’s phone number in a scene that makes her out to look vindictive and shady. Porsha makes it known, “You’re trying to provoke me and it’s not going to work.”
Porsha has bigger things to worry about, like her demotion from a main cast member to a secondary character, who is no longer holding a peach. Bravo released the official cast roster for the new season and Porsha wasn’t on it! It seems like Porsha doesn’t have much of a storyline with Kordell out of the picture, so we’re just happy she wasn’t given the complete boot and she is too. “No more peach for me, but I still love checking in with my girls” #Blessed #SomethingMajor #JustHereToSlay #TeamPorsha,” she posted on Instagram.
While tension brews between Porsha and Claudia, things are heating up between Claudia and NeNe. “You’re a whore. Hollywood ain’t looking for you,” NeNe stings in one scene. Do we need anymore evidence that Claudia is going to be the new Kenya?
Phaedra Swings On Kenya
Phaedra and Kenya’s rivalry finally boils over this season. And what did it take? Kenya accused Phaedra of cheating on her husband Apollo (who she allegedly tried to sleep with) with an African man name “Chocolate.” Who and what? Phaedra lost her cool and it looks like she lashed out at Kenya with her purse or shoe. Can’t say we didn’t see that coming… You think Kenya would hit her chill button after Phaedra read her for filth at the last reunion special.
Apollo Gets Crazy With Phaedra
Apollo and Phaedra get into a heated dispute moments before he is set to turn himself into prison for an eight-year stint after pleading guilty to charges related to identity theft and bank fraud. The encounter doesn’t do anything to dispel looming divorce rumors. If we had to guess it, we’d say Apollo and Phaedra’s marriage doesn’t look like it’s going to make it.
Watch the trailer, below and tell us your thoughts on the two-minute clip.
Season 7 airs November 9 at 8PM on Bravo. See you there!
