Bravo has finally released promo photos for ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta‘ season 5 with two newbies in tow.
We all knew that Sheree Whitfield was fired from the show for asking for more money to help fund the construction of ‘Chateau Sheree’ and the unofficial cast member Marlo Hampton wouldn’t be returning probably due to the gay slur she made, but where is Kim Zolciak????
According to Examiner, Kim was close to giving birth at the time the photos were taken, but she will still be apart of the show although her role is “slightly reduced.”
So, just exactly who are these other two chicks you’re wondering. Well, I’m sure most of you know about or have heard of Kenya Moore. She’s a former Miss USA, model turned actress who is currently not married (so how is she really a housewife). The other newbie is Porsha Stewart, wife of former NFL player Kordell Stewart.
Meet Kenya Moore:
Kenya Moore is the triple threat with beauty, brains and talent. Originally from Detroit, the former psychology major left Michigan with fierce drive and determination to build her own unique brand.
Perhaps most recognized for being crowned Miss USA, Kenya is also known for acting and having worked with many “A” list stars, is a film and TV producer and CEO of Moore Vision Media. She finds Atlanta to be the perfect environment to grow a business and a rich social life. Aside from being a serious career woman, Kenya enjoys writing, hitting the gym, and never passes up an opportunity to speak her mind. A hopeless romantic, Kenya is ready to start a family with her Mr. Right.
Porsha Stewart is a saucy southern lady and embodies the essence of a confident woman wise beyond her years. A true “Georgia Peach,” Porsha was born and raised into a prominent family in Atlanta and is the granddaughter of Civil Rights leader and philanthropist, Rev. Hosea Williams. Residing in the exclusive Buckhead community in Atlanta, Porsha is a recent bride to former NFL football player Kordell Stewart and takes prides in being a new mom to her stepson, Syre.
Porsha always keeps family first, but in her spare time she manages to nurture a budding music career as well as various business ventures. Porsha will be taking her family’s legacy and enriched heart for giving into her new family with the unveiling of Kordell & Porsha Stewart Foundation for Cancer Research. Porsha also enjoys spending time outdoors, reading, yoga, and afternoon dips in her pool. Well-known on the Atlanta social scene, some might say Porsha has it all.
I’m sure with there being plans of Nene leaving the show, they’ve added two new chicks to bring on the drama as Bravo has already revealed in the synopsis:
New ventures, sizzling romance, a whole lotta donkey booty, and two new Housewives arrive to turn up the heat in Hotlanta. Season 5 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta follows NeNe as she embarks on a new adventure as a rising star in Hollywood. In the love department, NeNe flirts with the idea of rekindling a romance with her ex, Gregg, meanwhile, new love is in the air for Kandi who has recently found herself a man. Focused on their expanding businesses, Cynthia dabbles into the world of pageants and Phaedra decides to create a fitness video all about achieving that signature “donkey booty.” Our recently married Housewife Kim is also busy expanding her family, but manages to make it out for the ladies’ events — even ones where NeNe is the guest of honor. Will these two ever make up or will she further distance herself from the group in favor of her family and man? New Housewives Kenya and Porsha also join the mix and waste very little time stirring things up among this group of southern ladies.
The series delves into the lives of six sassy women from Atlanta’s social elite. Juggling families, careers, and jam-packed social calendars, the Real Housewives live their triumphs and frustrations out loud. Atlanta continues to be a character in itself as one of the hottest entertainment hubs in America. These driven and ambitious women prove that they’re not just “housewives,” but entrepreneurs, doting mothers, and feisty southern women.
Welp! There you have it… Will you be watching????
