Things are getting peachy in Atlanta! The current cast of The Real Housewives of Atlanta will all be returning for season seven, multiple sources confirm to Us Weekly. Plus, two more — Demetria McKinney and Claudia Jordan — will be joining the pack!
Kandi Burruss, Kenya Moore, Cynthia Bailey, Phaedra Parks, and Porsha Williams will all be coming back for another year of cat fights, cocktails, and good times. Veteran Housewife NeNe Leakes, too, will be making a comeback for one final season; the budding actress and performer's contract is up after season seven, one source explains.
Leakes will have new pals to socialize with before packing her bags. According to the insider, singer/actress McKinney has officially signed on to be a full-time Housewife. TV and radio personality Jordan — who has appeared on the U.S. version of Deal or No Deal — will have a supporting role.
Newbies may change up the dynamic, but tensions are still high between some of the costars. Producers are apparently scrambling to make pot-stirrer Moore get along with the other women. As fans know all too well, Moore got into a vicious brawl with castmate Williams during the taping of their Bravo reunion back in March. Leakes took to her personal website in April to defend Williams while noting that she doesn't "condone violence."
The premiere date for Season 7 of RHOA has yet to be announced.
