At this point, Bravo reality show casts experience about as many shake-ups as the Trump White House.
There’s the occasional stalwart Housewife who’s been with her series from the start, but few are able to strike that balance where they can to drum up enough drama to satisfy viewers, but not so much that they permanently piss off their castmates.
In other words, for every Lisa Vanderpump, there’s a Kim Zolciak-Biermann, who’s come and gone so many times even she probably couldn’t tell you if she’s currently a member of the Real Housewives of Atlanta cast.
RHOA has more of a revolving door than other shows in the franchise but the season 11 picture is beginning to develop.
There was a time when none of the original Housewives were main cast members, but NeNe Leakes and Sheree Whitfield both made their returns over the past two years.
Whitfield has been ousted once again, but next season, NeNe will be joined by Kandi Burruss, Cynthia Bailey, Porsha Williams, Kenya Moore and — drumroll please …
Newcomer Eva Marcille!
Eva is a familiar face to fans of the franchise, as she appeared as a “friend of the cast” in season 10.
Of course, that wasn’t Eva’s first foray into the world of reality television, as she initially made a name for herself as the winner on her season of America’s Next Top Model.
These days, Eva is a mother of two, but fear not — she hasn’t lost her taste for drama.
Earlier this week, Marcille pulled no punches when discussing her fraught relationship with Kenya Moore in an interview with Us Weekly.
“She was gone for most of the season,” Marcille told Us.
“And I thought mean girls died in like high school like, I didn’t realize they were knocking on 50 but hey girl live your best.”
Marcille did offer some sympathy to Moore, stating:
“I thought like she’s on this whole other space you know. I get her irritation towards certain people that she’s had history with.”
As we said earlier, Sheree Whitfield won’t be returning next season, nor will Kim Zolciak-Biermann, who — like Marcille — had part-time “friend” status last season.
So the cast will look considerably different in season 11, but we’ll sure they’ll still be serving up what fans keep coming back for:
Plenty of drama, and gossip as juicy as a Georgia peach.
