Real Housewives of Atlanta Update!

Written by Lauren S.

The Bravo show Real Housewives of Atlanta has begun shooting Season 6! Wet Paint is reporting NeNe Leakes, Cynthia Bailey, Phaedra Parks, Kenya Moore and Porsha Stewart are currently being followed around Atlanta by Bravo cameras. Kim Zolciak-Bierman quit the show during season 5 but she can be seen in her spin off show “Don’t Be Tardy…”, also on Bravo. She told Enstarz she “can’t say that (she) won’t return to Real Housewives of Atlanta.”

The Real Housewives have been filming since at least May. Access Atlanta reports some of the ladies were filming at Lime in Buckhead on May 13. There are stories about several of the Real Housewives right now so here is an update on our favorite ATL ladies.

Porsha initially quit the RHOA when her husband Kordell filed for divorce on March 22. She later changed her mind and asked Bravo to take her back. It was reported Porsha was locked out of her house by Kordell and asked for temporary spousal support. Kordell says Porsha parties all night and was a terrible step mom to his son. Their divorce is now even nastier due to a cheating scandal on Porsha’s part.

NeNe’s spinoff I Dream of NeNe will air in September. We will get to see how NeNe and Greg Leakes’ June 22 wedding came together. NeNe’s The New Normal has been canceled but NeNe is still a working actress. She will continue her role on Glee as Coach Roz. NeNe was a judge for the miss USA pageant on June 16.

Kim Zolciak-Bierman’s spin off show “Don’t Be Tardy…”just finished it’s second season. Kim is pregnant with her fifth child, the third with her husband Atlanta Falcon Kroy Bierman. She is being sued by Kandi Burrus for profits from the song Don’t Be Tardy For The Party.

Phaedra gave birth to her second boy in May. She scored her own Bravo spin off show called Rich People Problems. Phaedra will be a mediator for legal disputes for civil cases. Phaedra also has a new book coming out called Secrets of a Southern Belle, a book of etiquette.

Kandi Burrus is currently planning her wedding to fiancé Todd Tucker. The couple have yet to finalize their plans. She told Examiner “I have so much to think about now, so much to prepare for. I’m clueless,” Kandi reveals. “We don’t know if we want a destination wedding, or if we want to do it in Atlanta. Do we want a big wedding or a small intimate one? Do we even want a wedding? Should we just get married privately and do a big reception?” This month Kandi and her friend Peaches Chin opened a third location of their retail clothing store Tags.

Cynthia Bailey’s modeling agency The Bailey Agency is growing and has relocated to a larger space. The new location is on Memorial Drive near her husband Peter Thomas’ establishment Bar One. Cynthia will be judging the upcoming Hooters pageant. A doll is being created in her image. Cynthia joins the ranks of the many women from franchise to publish a book. Recently, Cynthia revealed she has an illness that caused her mid section swell. For now she is not revealing the cause of her illness. It was first thought Cynthia’s expanding belly was due to pregnancy.

Kenya Moore has been evicted from the house she was renting in Roswell. She is accused of not paying her rent and not keeping up the property. Kenya did not appear at her court date, but she said the reason is she never got the notice. Kenya has been given a new hearing on July 9.

Bravo has not yet announced when the new season will air.
