The Real Housewives of Atlanta is back for a 5th season on Sun., Nov. 4 at 9 p.m. The two NEW Housewives is Socialte Porsha Stewart and actor/director/producer Kenya Moore. Returning “Housewives” Cynthia Bailey, Kandi Burruss, NeNe Leakes and Phaedra Parks. Kim Zolciak, who recently starred in her own spinoff; won’t be returning to the show full time cause her story line is basically boring.
New ventures, sizzling romance, a whole lotta donkey booty, and two new Housewives arrive to turn up the heat in Hotlanta. Season 5 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta follows NeNe as she embarks on a new adventure as a rising star in Hollywood. In the love department, NeNe flirts with the idea of rekindling a romance with her ex, Gregg, meanwhile, new love is in the air for Kandi who has recently found herself a man. Focused on their expanding businesses, Cynthia dabbles into the world of pageants and Phaedra decides to create a fitness video all about achieving that signature “donkey booty.” Recently married Housewife Kim is also busy expanding her family, but manages to make it out for the ladies’ events — even ones where NeNe is the guest of honor. Will these two ever make up or will she further distance herself from the group in favor of her family and man? New Housewives Kenya and Porsha also join the mix and waste very little time stirring things up among this group of southern ladies. (9/21/12)
