The Real Housewives of Atlanta's seventh season recently wrapped, which means casting rumors regarding season 8 are in full-swing.
In the latest round of rumors, a number of women are discussed. So, who will reportedly return to the series, and who has allegedly been axed? According to a report on Tuesday, only three women are confirmed thus far.
"NeNe Leakes, Kenya and Kandi are confirmed for ['Real Housewives of Atlanta' season eight]," LALATE reported. In addition, the site claimed, "Sheree [Whitfield] is not joining RHOA, [and] producers are likely to give NeNe Leakes two to three full housewife allies on the show, to even out the balances."
LALATE also reported that Teresa Giudice's current incarceration has had an impact on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, since production on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, which also airs on Sundays, has been on hold.
"Sundays on Bravo are anchored for the last eight years by RHOA and RHONJ. RHONJ typically runs April to October. But with no RHONJ yet (and yes it is coming back), Bravo is rushing RHOA back into production sooner, starting next month," the site explained. "There is a fear that nothing will anchor Sunday well until RHOA is back ready to air, with the exception of Nene, Kim and Kandi’s spinoffs. In short, RHOA generally airs in October. But don’t be surprised if Bravo gets it back on air several months earlier."
