“The Real Housewives of Atlanta” returns Monday, October 4 with a highly anticipated season 3 on Bravo. All the “housewives” are set to return sans Lisa Wu Hartwell. The show replaces Hartwell with new cast members Cynthia Bailey, a former model, and entertainment attorney Phaedra Parks—a close friend of unofficial housewife Dwight Eubanks. Parks is supposedly already under fire. She’s married to a younger man who’s in prison.

Original cast mates NeNe Leakes, Sheree Whitfield, Kim Zolciak, and Kandi Burruss will pick up where season 2 left off.

“The Real Housewives of Atlanta” boasts 3.6 million viewers with ages ranging from 18-49. The series is Bravo’s highest rated series of all of the “Real Housewives” franchise.

We don’t know about you, but we’ll be tuning in for the third installment of straight diva foolery.

Our predictions: Sheree and Cynthia will go head-to-head for the true fashionista of Atlanta title. And NeNe and Kim will team up against Phaedra for, we don’t know, something deliciously ridiculous. We confess, we’re eating up every bit of it. Well, at least until a real scripted series with authentic actresses returns to the small screen.

Are you tuning in? What are your “Real Housewives of Atlanta” predictions? Sound off!

    I’ll check it out. Where do they get Kandii being an original cast mate? They have got rid of the one’s that were to real and kept the fake one’s. NeNe is a Hater and she will clash with all of them ,because she already has clashed with the one’s from last season. It doesn’t look the same anymore,they have went through changes and there the White girl is still in the running and she hasn’t done anything and won’t. I don’t know people ,I don’t think ATL should let this show represent the Classy,Wealthy,Professional side of town. Peace

  • Oh yes… I must admit I will be in front the television with pop corn and all…

    I will DEFINITELY not be watching this! I liked Kim Wu Hartwell and she was really the only one who made sense on the last season. This cast seems to be full of drama!

    Predictions: Kim and NeNe will team up against Phaedra; they will also continue their love/hate relationship. Cynthia will get along with everybody (as her and NeNe are already friends). Sheree will bump heads with Kim. Kandi stand clear of drama, but buddy up with Phaedra and give her the low down on how NeNe can make one lose their religion lol.
