For fans of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, the drama will continue. According to Radar, all the ladies will return for a sixth season.
Cynthia Bailey, Kandi Burruss, Porsha Stewart, Phaedra Parks, Kenya Moore and, yes, NeNe Leakes have all signed up for Season Six. A source close to production confirmed that “the ladies have already signed their contracts … [They] brought their best game forward this season, and the production team knows how valuable they all are.”
On Leakes returning, the source said: “NeNe is definitely going to be back because, of course, she’s the star and, even though she has other jobs, RHOA wouldn’t be the same without her!” Leakes's value hasn't translated just into ratings but into a huge raise as well. She will be the highest-paid Atlanta housewife, getting a reported $1 million for her return.
The news comes as the reunion shows for Season Five are beginning to air. While the final part of the reunion won’t air until next week, word has leaked that there will be a huge confrontation between Phaedra Parks and Kenya Moore. The issue? Kenya is accused of propositioning Phaedra’s hubby, Apollo, for sex.
"Let’s get this clear, my husband just asked her for advice on an acting coach,” Parks is reported to have said. “Kenya continued to text him, saying, 'Oh, you look nice.'” No word on if the exchange goes beyond words, but Kenya is said to defend herself from the claims.
