Kenya Moore is returning to RHOA for the upcoming season. I’ve known this was probably happening for a bit; however, I didn’t want to confirm it until the contract was actually signed. Because, I wasn’t really sure it was happening. The contract negotiation phase went on forever last season between Kenya and Bravo and ended with Kenya deciding to walk away. So we’ve been hearing rumors for a while but now it is confirmed.
This does not guarantee Kenya a peach. The contract she signed is a per episode contract. But, at this point I’m told the peach is there for her to take. Or lose. And both Bravo and Kenya are happy with the deal .I feel confident she will get the peach. But, I am always hesitant until it actually happens.
I am once again hearing that Eva Marcille’s peach isn’t completely locked in. This is the similar to last year when they couldn’t decide between Tanya Sam and Shamari Devoe. Ultimately, they went with Shamari and lived to regret it. This season, if they aren’t happy with Eva they have Tanya on the back burner to take her peach.
Meanwhile, the Nene Leakes problem persists. The only person who wants Nene on the show is the bravo suit who makes the decisions. As I previously mentioned, production is dropping like flies. The showrunner from last season doesn’t have it in her to spend another five months or so with Nene. So she left when Nene was picked up. They are hoping to hire a new one some time this week. Good Luck with that.
What’s Nene’s Story?
The talent executive at Truly Original is trying to hammer out everyone’s storylines. While four of the RHOA have a baby storyline, no one wants to film with Nene. Also, Nene doesn’t fit into anyone’s story. Nene also doesn’t have a story of her own. No one knows what to do with her. BECAUSE, she should have been fired. Now, after insulting and assaulting everyone, Nene says she is prepared to go on an apology tour. I am not sure anyone is interested in Nene’s fake apologies.
So production is supposed to start this month. And everything is a hot mess. Like it or not, Porsha Williams will be the primary focus of the season. She’s got a lot going on. Kandi Burruss has her surrogacy storyline. Eva Marcille is pregnant again! Kenya has her baby. It’s going to be a very baby-centric season.
So who do you think will crack and film with Nene Leakes? Cynthia? Kandi? Will it be like RHOBH this season with everyone on the outs with one cast member? Who knows? First things first. This circus needs a ringmaster. Until they get a show runner for this season, the show can’t go on.
And how excited are you that Kenya Moore is returning to RHOA?
