Not 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.
(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.)
