All six ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ set to be back for season four

the-real-housewives-of-atlaNot surprisingly, “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” will be back for a fourth season. And Bravo is keeping the same six women: NeNe Leakes, Sheree Whitfield, Kim Zolciak, Phaedra Parks, Kandi Burruss and Cynthia Bailey.

This is the first season where they have chosen to make no change.

And despite rumors of Kim or NeNe leaving for spinoffs, Andy Cohen is sticking with what’s worked already. “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” is the most popular “Housewives” franchise, averaging nearly 3 million viewers per episode last season, up from 2.7 million season two.

"Real Housewives" is not changing cast. Who would you have wanted most to leave?

(Word is that “Real Housewives of D.C.” is already gone after one season. It’s unclear if “Miami” will merit a second season.)

Production for Atlanta is supposed to begin this month. Given how cold the relationship has become between Kim and NeNe, will they have any desire to reconcile again.

Oh, and that $3.2 million house Kroy Biermann and Kim were looking at in Roswell to lease-purchase?  The deal fell through, according to the real estate agent Rebecca Currie, who admitted Kim was a bit peeved that Currie spoke to me (although it was Kim’s daughter who Tweeted out the information a few weeks ago.)

RHOA (Real Housewives Of Atlanta) – So that’s what it stands for! I have some WOW (World Of Warcraft), GWTW (Gone With The Wind), and LOTR (Lord Of The Rings) to catch up on. See you on HALO (High Altitude Low Orbit), unless you’re into parachuting, in which case, I’d see ya a whole lot closer to the ground. (High Altitude Low Opening). ;)

thugs? really?

“thug” as defined by merriam-webster: a brutal ruffian or assassin.

really? these women are a lot of things, but in no way thugs. chris has obviously benefited from a georgia education.

these women are – and in no particular order – entertainers, entertainment lawyers, mothers, and wives. they’re even gold diggers, ex-strippers, ex-wives, even shameless.

above all else, they have one of the highest rated shows on television, they entertain millions of people, and they are recognizable.

who is this chris guy again? oh that’s right. someone no one knows with a name so common he could be anyone hiding behind a computer. in other words: lame

now do you need that defined for you as well?

TEAM NENE!

Chis why are they thugs? Are they criminals? Why are they going to be in jail or dead in 5 years? And lastly, why do you take time to post your idiot comments on here? Leave it to the people who enjoy the show. That would be 3 million of us.

why are they thugs on this show? because they argue and fight just like the rest of the housewives? because there are more black criminals than white, all blacks are criminals? there are more black criminals because of the socio economic environment that alot blacks grow up in. and this is true because blacks have only had equal rights for 50 years. yea, thats probably younger than you chris.

I hope they phase NENE out after the few episode, from what I read yesterday that’s the plan they have for that big moose. She never has anything positive to say about anyone on RHOA or Celeb Apprentice, but she calls everyone else a hater.

To the Redneck Chris, First of all you don’t even watch the show so why are you dissing it? You want to talk about thugs? Have you seen the Real Housewives of New Jersey? Those woman have NOTHING on the Housewives of Atlanta and FYI they are White and Italian. Talk about thugs.

And second are you just upset because they don’t do the Real Rednecks of Atlanta. You want to discuss race, fine but be a big boy and not try to hide your disdain for blacks through a forum about a reality show.

It would be nice to have another white chick or two for Kim. I feel sorry for her, especially when all the black chicks use the race card on her. Pathetic. I really hate the Atlanta show… now Beverly Hills… those women are hot, they actually have money, and are housewives!

OMG, I can’t believe the level of racisim that still exists in the U.S. In my country there is over and above tolerance for other races, in fact we embrace all cultures to allow ourselves to grow and get all that is offered in life. Who would think of calling “The Real Housewives Of Atlanta” thugs, criminals, low class only in America darling only in America. Grow up! Nene, you’re of great talent and will go far, Kandi, you already made it, and Phaedra congratulations on being a successful woman. From my perspective that’s the problem, most of the Atlanta housewives are Black, beautiful, educated and successful.

I really like films being made in Atlanta, or GA for that matter. Can we have some Sci Fi or Horror even? Anything original? This is [facebook]; somebody get a camera!

Can people think of nothing else? Zombie dolphins that only eat gold converging on the capitol. Aliens landing… news at 11. Zeguuin’s abduct local… news at 5. Secuni’s launch first attack at the sun..Something, anyone? New virus allows complete control over host implants.. news at 2.

Rogue 1.35 GHz signal unleashes havoc for mobile devices. Remote controlled homes trap owners. Ancient Hex proves ominous. Artifact begins glowing in Atlanta. Meteor launched from Russia to balance galactic gravitation instabilities. Just sayin…

OMG! Not again! Can we get some “Real Housewives” of Atlanta on Bravo. The ONLY Housewife on the show is PHAEDRA PARKS. Why call it REAL HOUSEWIVES of ATLANTA when only one lady is a real housewife, and she WORKS FOR A LIVING, making an income!!

We know its all about the money and ratings, but, BRAVO channel, give us a break!!

LOL…you are surprised about the level of racism on these boards? Please…I am a native Atlantan and I know that in the South we have the most hardened, uneducated, racists around. There is no use in arguing with them on these boards they will never, ever, have anything decent to say about a black person . So even though we all know that behavior on these housewives show is basically the same….but oh when its the black women…well thats just different,…..HA …welcome to the South!

Glad to hear the DC housewives was cancelled. The other housewives were so mean to Michaele, it was a real turnoff. I liked Michaele and her shenanigans—it was like watching a clown at a circus.

I for one look forward to a new season. I like the “housewives”, all the areas, except for Miami. I have tried to watch them, but they are plain scary. There are some weird looking women on there. Andy should rename Miami to the Real Botox Fans of Miami…..give me some good downhome Atlanta girls. Red, yellow, black or white….nothing like a good Nene and Kim fight!

To Chris, you should know who the most criminals are in this world….you and your white ancestors. You all have been robbing, raping, killing for centuries now. You need to check yourself!! I love the Atlanta Housewives series!! They are the most real and if NeNe did not return, I would not watch the show. I am Team NeNe all the way!! Miami needs to be cancelled, it as BORING. I could not even watch because of the one lady’s mom…..she was SCARY with her botox face.

I knew they would bring the RHOA back, it’s Bravo’s highest rated show ever! They are making so much money off of those ladies, I hope they are paying them well! I like most of the ladies ESP. Kim, Phaedra and Sheree. The rest are extremely boring except Nene. She’s good tv but that’s it. If she didn’t return the show would be a lot classier, she brings it down,she never has anything good or positive to say about anyone including her husband! She thinks people are laughing with her but we are laughing at her. Replace her please

Seen NeNe the other day almost ran into the back of my car in Gwinette Co. as she sat in her Land Rover on the way to Sun Trust I guess nobody niew who she was but me. She did look very nice as she entered the Suntrust Bank. Since she has stated her pockets are deep I guess she was checking on the pocket.

Lets just say that they are all entertainers. I have not seen anything thuggish in either of them. They are all women that are working to support themselves and their families. It is an honest living and I can personally appreciate their talent. Each one brings different skills and talents. Lets give them the benefit of the doubt. There is something there that BRAVO recognizes and can use. The ones calling them thugs are home watching because you are either a fan or appreciate the story lines. There is enough meanness in the world. Lets make a difference in how we reference people. They are people you know and if you do not like it, change the channel. It is as simple as that.

Yeah, Kim is seeing how Troy can’t afford her ! He makes 500,000 base pay for the Falcons and can’t even get into a 3 million dollar house ! Good ! and by the way the Atlanta Falcons may cut him this summer. He is a Bust and a wasted draft pick ! See how long Kim be with him when the Falcons cut him !

Black, white, brown the color does not matter when you are hiding behind a computer and no one can see you. We don’t know whether Chris is black, white or brown and it really does not matter. There is one thing we do know and that is people who make racist comments are people of all colors who consistanly try to cause problems through blogs by making racist comments. If no one acknowledges their comments maybe they will stop typing them. Just pray for these behind the computer lonely people and also at the same time pray for all the people in this world who are loosing love ones due to earthquakes,tsumi’s,hurricanes,cancer,heart attacks,strokes,suicides,killings and etc. Life is too short to dwell on negative blogsters’ Love and let someone love you!

I LOVE the Atlanta Housewives!!!! I hope all the ladies return, however, the same story was published before Season 3 began. They said the entire cast of Season 2 would be returning and no one would be added. Well…wrong. Lisa Wu was gone and Phaedra Parks and Cynthia Bailey were added. So I will wait until the ATL Housewives finish filming for Season 4 to see who IS coming back and who WILL be added. I think there will be a new housewife. They have to keep the show fresh!! But as long as Nene is still on I’ll always watch!!!!

Was surprised that Sheree was asked to return. I have nothing against her, but her storylines last season were quite boring. I do hope they get rid of that old Miss Thing, aka Dwight Eubanks.

This show to me is really stupid. My question has always been. Don’t you have to be married to be a housewife, How many women in this show are married? The operative word is WIFE…….
