Bravo just rolled out its first look at the upcoming season of Real Housewives of Atlanta, and we’re a little baffled by the new cast members.
While Cynthia Bailey, Kandi Burruss, Phaedra Parks, Kenya Moore, and Porsha Williams all return, the housewives are getting a little more company: Living Single star Kim Fields.
Exactly, I was thrown for a loop too.
Here’s how Bravo breaks down the upcoming season:
Baby joy, marital drama, and unexpected faces are just some of the hightlights from the upcoming season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, premiering Sunday, November 8 at 8/7c. From the supertease alone, it’s clear Season 8 has no shortage of ups and downs. Viewers will get to go inside Kandi Burruss’ pregnancy and see first hand the challenges Cynthia Bailey and Peter Thomas are facing in their marriage. Kenya Moore is still looking for love while also building what has been dubbed “Moore Manor.” (Do we smell some competition for the Dubrow Chateau down in the ATL?) Always-busy Phaedra Parks is embarking on life as a single mother while husband Apollo is incarcerated. Oh, and, Porsha Williams has found love.
The season also welcomes a few new women to the mix: Facts of Lifestar Kim Fields, as well as former Atlanta Falcons and Atlanta Hawks Cheerleader Shamea Morton. And some familiar faces return, with original Housewife of Atlanta Sheree Whitfield dropping in. We know — we can’t wait until November, either.
So, Nene’s out, Sheree’s back, and Regine Hunter is joining the cast? I can’t even deal.
Take a look at the trailer below.
Will you be watching when Real Housewives of Atlanta returns in November?
