Gird your peaches because Bravo is planning a MAJOR casting shake-up for season 14 of the Real Housewives of Atlanta!
“RHOA was once Bravo’s highest-rated housewives show but has lost its superiority over other shows in the franchise,” a source told The Sun.“There’s going to be a big cast shake-up next season, and some producers are mulling over asking Phaedra Parks to return.”
The Bravo insider added, “The hope is that having fan favorites like Phaedra come back will help the show rise back into the 2 million viewers-a-week arena.”
On top of Phaedra’s possible comeback, insiders say that the return of OG NeNe Leakes would also help boost ratings. However, that is unlikely since NeNe has been publicly blasting Bravo and RHOA producers ever since her contract negotiations for season 13 went awry.
“Many insiders believe NeNe would help drive ratings, but her feud with producers seems to show no signs of letting up,” the source explained before noting that “Fans were shocked when she left, and there has been a question mark over whether she’ll ever return, and it looks unlikely.”
RHOA currently stars Cynthia Bailey, Kenya Moore, Kandi Burruss, Porsha Williams, and Drew Sidora.
RHOA airs on Sundays at 8 pm EST on BRAVO.
