Things are starting to fall into place regarding the peach situation for the upcoming season of Real Housewives of Atlanta. Nene, Porsha, Cynthia, Kandi and Eva have completed their first interviews and first checks have gone out Eva has Sheree’s peach. They are currently scheduling the cast photo shoot.
That leaves Kenya’s peach up for grabs. Two people were considered for that peach, Tanya Sam and Shamari Devoe. Tanya Sam refused to sign the contract. She wanted a guarantee of a six figure income. None of the contracts have a guarantee unless you have a Most Favored Nation contact like Nene does. Otherwise they negotiate a per episode amount but do not guarantee the number of episodes, particularly with new people who could be written out completely or demoted during filming. She’s a registered nurse with a wealthy husband or fiancé, not sure if they have married yet and it doesn’t matter because she’s out.
This is not the first time someone has refused to sign the contract. Last year, Shamea was offered a peach. She told people it was because her husband didn’t want her to; however, the real reason I’m told is because she didn’t want a lengthy contract with a do not complete clause. She sees to think she has other possibilities on reality TV.
On Friday 8/17, Shamari DeVoe signed her contract and claimed Kenya Moore’s peach. Production is very happy with her. She has exactly what they are looking for and she will be featured as a B-Story kind of like Sheree and Cynthia. Nene, Kandi and to a degree Eva will be the main focus. Somebody has to sit at the far end of the couches at the reunion.
Cynthia has selected her boyfriend for the season with a little help from Steve Harvey. I think the guy she is going to pretend to date this season is a guy that Steve Harvey set her up with on his show. That’s the same way she cast the one from last season. I expect it to be just as awkward.
Porsha has a new man who might actually be a thing this time. She has “redeemed herself” with production.
Marlo is the head pot stirrer this season.
Kandi and Todd are busy opening up new OLG stores. They have a small version of it going in at Phillips Arena. Todd is going to be on camera a lot this season between the new OLG and producing Kandi’s Bravo Show.
Nene’s storyline is focused around Gregg’s health issues.
Eva’s wedding is conveniently scheduled to take place to the finale.
And that’s the tea! There is always a chance that the peaches change, but this year things seem pretty set barring something unforeseen happening.
