The Bravo suits are taking forever to makeup their minds about who will stay and who will go for RHOA season 12. Currently, the only definite yes is Porsha Williams. This is not a shocker, she has been moved into the role of queen bee.
The bad news for us is that Kenya Moore is not in negotiations at all. She was not even contacted by Bravo. So there is no indication that she will be back in any capacity on RHOA season 12. I think that is a huge mistake. But, it is what it is and this is what my sources are saying. I can’t discount it because it is not what I want to hear.
In other news, while no final decision has been made regarding Nene Leakes, it seems the suits are afraid to move on without her. At least for the upcoming season. While releasing her is still on the table, it seems their ratings metrics are leaning toward keeping her. It does seem like they are taking their time sending out pick-up letters for next season. Are they deliberately making her squirm?
If they do in fact keep her, Nene Leakes is pushing hard for Phaedra Parks to come back as a friend on RHOA season 12. Because God knows she needs a friend. This will take a considerable amount of time away from Phaedra Parks new career as as Wilhelmina model. But we must all sacrifice for the greater good.
Tamara Tattles exclusive source reports that they are not planning a major shakeup. Research and focus groups are lackluster on both Eva Marcille and Shamari Devoe. The suits prefer Eva over Shamari for the most part. But they are both budget-friendly so they will both likely stay.
Don’t Expect A Major Shake Up On RHOA Season 12
As of this moment (save your thumbs if it changes) it looks like everyone is coming back. The only possible change could be Tanya Sam. Shamari Devoe could be demoted to a friend and Tanya would take the peach. This is a choice they went back and forth on for a couple MONTHS during the casting for this season. Tanya Sam seems to bring more shade. Shamari Devoe is a little less interesting but appeals to their favorite demographic. It’s really not a big deal either way.
I’ll keep you informed if I hear of any changes to the cast for RHOA Season 12. Don’t blame the messenger. Remember, I told you the Bravo suits were very pleased with the ratings this season. On the bright side, at least they aren’t talking about Sheree Whitfield.
