Every Spring, the Housewives take a break from the drama. But as soon as cameras go up, rumors about Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 9 hit the streets.

It’s Justin Diego with Real Housewives of Atlanta tea and today I’m gonna be sharing 10 things we already know about RHOA Season 9, so stay tuned to find out who’s coming back, who’s joining the cast, and a whole lot more.

This is RHOAtea Weekly: Everything we know about The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 9

1. The Peach Holders

Of course everyone wants to know if their fav’s are coming back. While it’s still too early to know who’ll be holding a peach. Here os what we know now. After winning Bravo’s most socially driven Award, it comes as no surprise that Kandi Burruss is expected to be back for another round.

Team Tall can expect Cynthia Bailey & Kenya Moore to make a their return as well.

And of course fan favorites Frick & Frack  (Porsha Williams & Phaedra Parks) are expected to be making their return to the RHOA cameras as well.

But what About The OG’s?

Sources close to the came are saying that Sheree Whitfield is definitely filming and back for season 9, while it’s still unclear whether or not Nene has even began filming. Bravo, what’s up with that?

2. Cynthia Divorce

As quiet as it’s kept, last season was all about Cynthia. In one of the biggest scandals in her Housewives career, We watched Peter and Cynthia fight to save their marriage after a video leaked that made it impossible for Cynthia to continue to ignore Peter’s cheating allegations.

Even after Peter tried to blow-off their marriage problems at the last reunion, the couple has  now gone public about their plans for a divorce. In an interesting turn of events, Peter booked an appearance on the Wendy Williams show to reveal that he was blind-sided by the whole thing and that he is actually still in love with Cynthia Bailey. We shouldn’t have to wait that much longer to get to the bottom of this. I’m pretty sure that tea will be served in the first episode.

3. Kandi & Phaedra beef continues

After a pretty tumultuous season, it looks like Kandi and Phaedra’s friendship is still unresolved and it may be time for Team Phandi to choose a side.

Earlier this summer Andy Cohen hosted the BRAVOS,  awarding Kandi Burruss the most social and Phaedra Parks the queen of shade. While all of the housewives weren’t invited to the show, fans were excited to see Kandi and Phaedra re-united for the first time since the reunion. Needless to say, that was a bust!

4. Kenya Moore foolery with Matt

Kenya’s New Lover Matt seemed to blast Kenya Moore earlier this summer on Instagram.

He shared a photo of Moore Manor, and revealed in the caption that they had decided to have a talk to speak on the status of their relationship and turn up for his birthday. But when he arrived, he was met with cameras and a television crew; he hinted that Moore left out the fact that they would be filming for the show during their time together. It’s a shame that Matt deleted the post before we could leave a long train of the crying face emoji in comments, but on the upside at least he’s hired for another season; right?

5. Phaedra Parks

Phaedra has been adjusting to the single life. No word yet on her relationship with Apollo Nida, but in a tense interview earlier this summer Parks made it very clear that it her relationship with Apollo is not to be a topic of discussion. Instead, our southern belle is = involved with this year’s presidential election and shared moments from her attendance at the DNC can be seen on her Instagram. Although Phaedra made headlines in July for being involved in an alleged Bomb-threat, Parks put rumors to rest and made it clear that she was never truly in harms way.

6. Porsha VS Kandi

Enstarz is reporting some turbulence after Porsha was allegedly outed for dating or having relations with one of Kandi’s ex boyfriends. (Riley’s father) Apparently Porsha didn’t think it was a big deal since Kandi is married to Todd now and doesn’t seem to have a relationship with the Mr. Man.

7. Porsha Bday Party was fabulous

It has been a huge year for porsha. Although she ended the season being thrown in front of the bus, Porsha has filmed the New Celebrity Apprentice, made strides in her career as a Journalist, and has been successful with her businesses. While celebrating a fabulous year Porsha gathered most of the ladies together for a fabulous party bus and a night with the stars.


8. Out with the Old, In with the Two New Wives

While it’s unclear whether Kim Fields walked away from the show, or if she was fired, word on the street is that Bravo is sending in two more ladies to replace her.

Here’s what we know about Mary am Ay Tac

Maryam Aytac

First of all, it seems she knows Phaedra from a UG affiliation, and is an active member of the business community.

According to Realitytea, Maryam is reportedly outspoken, well-connected, family-oriented, and has money! She and her husband have two teenagers, two goats, and own a successful local chain of restaurants called Cafe Istanbul. She’s also Persian, but don’t expect Shahs of Sunset!

Lena Chenier

She is reportedly the fiance of R&B singer Robert Lavelle. They could very well get married on the show, similar to the way Cynthia Bailey and Peter Thomas did season two.

She was tested a year ago but didn’t get picked, according to LoveBScott.

This shakeup comes as it is reported that Bravo is Fed Up with the previous casting fails and is looking to bring back the Classy Upscale and Influential Housewives series we came to love.

(no fake men, fake mortgages, fake bank balances, fake careers, fake businesses, fake marriages, and fake friendships)

10. Nene Leakes May Not Hold A Peach

Earlier this summer Nene Appeared on LIVE with Kelly! and was asked about her role in the New season of the Real Housewives of Atlanta. While she was careful not to confirm or deny her role, she did promise to be around “In some capacity”

Later in July, Nene Leakes took to Instagram to post a new selfie and was asked about RHOA 9. Fans were outraged to find that she hadn’t even filmed yet
