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.

Kim Zolciak took her final stand against her enemies on The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 10 Episode 21, and we think it’s fair to say she won’t be missed.
From deplorable comments to even more deplorable comments, Kim went out by pretty much incinerating what little credibility she had left.
If you watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta online, you will already know that Kim has been going at it with most of the other housewives all season long.
However, most of the housewives took offense to Kim branding Leakes as “sick and disgusting” for living in a roach nest.
The housewives felt like this lapse in judgment was racist, and that Kim should own up to what she did wrong.
“You’re reaching. Reaching,” Zolciak-Biermann fired back when she realized her words did not land with the ladies. “Don’t try it. It has nothing to do with the projects or none of that s—. A roach is a roach.”
But the real drama was saved for when Kim when Kim held a private meeting after the show was over.
However, Andy was not ready to admit defeat and urged Kim to make her comments heard.
“That bitch knows I’m not racist. NeNe knows I’m not racist,” Zolciak-Biermann said to Cohen.
“You know why you have not found another white woman to [join the cast]? Because nobody is dumb enough to do that!”
“Put yourself in my shoes — five African-American women — just hammered! I couldn’t even speak, my mind’s a f—— whirlwind!”
Kim then went a step too far by complaining that racism was only something being made bigger by social media.
“This whole racism thing in this day in age is b——. Everyone of those m———— on that couch owe this world a f—— apology for this racism s—,” she said.
“They already tried to claim that s— long ago. Nobody bought into it then because the social media wasn’t there and racism wasn’t f—— all that real. You know it.”
We wish we were kidding about what she said, but she drew a line and took a high jump over it.
It makes sense now that Kim is off the show because she never wanted to admit she was wrong, and the other housewives all seemed to echo Leakes’ sentiments about her.
“How much can a person take?” Kim asked Cohen in the show’s final moments.
“There wasn’t even one positive question for me. I was hammered! … There wasn’t a positive question. I have a very success marriage, I have beautiful children, there was nothing positive.”
But Andy knew Kim had made her bed, and he or the producers were not to blame for the way she acted.
“There was nothing positive, unfortunately, in your story from the season,” he told her. “It was all combative, it was. Because your whole time on the show as combative, it was.”
Yeah, we think it’s doubtful that Kim will ever appear on the series again, but she still has Don’t Be Tardy, and we’re not sure how that’s going to pan out.
Okay, what did you think of the final episode of the season? Did Kim go too far? Should she return to reality TV?
Hit the comments below.
Kandi Burruss doesn’t think it’s a big deal Kim Zolciak’s done with “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” … because she says her presence was hardly felt anyway. We got Kandi at LAX Friday night and asked her about Kim telling us she’s…
We think it’s fair to say that the days of NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak being cordial to each other are long gone.
In fact, it would not surprise us if the pair never spoke to each other again after The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 10 Episode 20.
The action kicked off as soon as Kim walked on stage. The eye rolls and looks of disgust made it obvious there was going to be much drama.
“You look younger than you did ten years ago,” Andy Cohen said to Kim, to which she responded, “I mean, I think that has a lot to do with makeup.”
“Your lips are considerably bigger. What’s the end game with the lips?” Andy grilled.
“It just depends on how I’m feeling at the moment,” Kim replied with a grin.
The conversation quickly turned to the NeNe-Kim feud, and it went nuclear when Kim started showing off the picture of NeNe parked in the handicap spot.
“All this bulls*** you’re gonna talk?” NeNe yelled at the naked selfie Queen. “Put it out now b**** I’m right here with your a**.”
Andy wanted to dig deep in order to find out the true reason for how these women are so at odds with each other.
Kim opined that NeNe was jealous of her life with her husband.
“You’re a hater. You are f***ing trash!” NeNe continued to rant at her nemesis. Unfortunately, the feud was cut short because there is still another week of this reunion to go.
Elsewhere, there was more drama for Kandi and Porsha. If you watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta online, you will already know that Kandi has been chanting for weeks that Porsha’s apology was fake as hell.
Surprisingly, Porsha seemed ready to bury the hatchet and finally move on with her life.
“I’m not putting any blame on you… I hear you loud and clear,” Porsha began her final attempt at an apology.
“It was a bad choice, and I wish I wasn’t a part of it. If that is what you were missing, you have it today. I apologize for the situation, and there is no but.” I
The ladies finally had a handshake, and that was that …. until next season.
Then, NeNe was put on blast for making friends with Marlo once again, and that’s because Kenya is not a fan of her.
This is the thing with these Bravo reality shows: You can’t be friends with someone one of your friends hates. It’s petty, but it must be part of the contract to appear on the shows.
Marlo appeared on the stage and wasted no time in voicing her displeasure about Kenya calling her a prostitute.
This made Andy ask Marlo where she made her money.
“I dated a billionaire,” she said as though she had a well-rehearsed response for everything.
In any case, the second half of the reunion lacked the luster that The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 10 Episode 19 had.
It’s time for a cast refresh and the producers know that. Sheree Whitfield and Kim Zolciak will not be back next season, so that’s a positive.
What did you think of all the action?
The Real Housewives of Atlanta continues Sundays on Bravo.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta fans just received some real, raw and terrible news:
One of the franchise’s most famous faces has said she will not return for the next all-new run of episodes.
Or the one after that… or the one after that.
Yup, folks, it’s true: Kim Zolciak is outta there.
On Saturday, the mother of six, who was traveling with husband Kroy Biermann, was stopped by a TMZ cameraman at the Los Angeles airport.
Asked about her future on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Zolciak made her answer as clear as can be, responding that she is “never, never” appearing on the series.
Because the show causes “too much unneeded stress,” she said.
Such a stance should not come as a shock to fans of this Bravo program.
Zolciak’s feud with NeNe Leakes reached new levels of intensity, immaturity and, some would say, racism over the past several weeks.
The reality stars, along with Kim’s daughter, went back and forth over whether NeNe has roaches in her home and, basically, over which of them sucks the most.
Prior to Kim’s TMZ-related confirmation, Andy Cohen even told People Magazine he assumed the veteran cast member had screamed her final on-air insult.
“I think she’s done, yeah,” Cohen told the publication, recounting the tension in filming the the Real Housewives season 10 reunion with Zolciak-Biermann and longtime rival Leakes:
“[Kim] walked out of that reunion and I said, ‘Yeah, I’ve seen the last of that wig at these reunions.'”
Here’s a glimpse at that walk-out:
Zolciak, of course, departed the show that made her famous back in its fifth season to film her own reality show Don’t Be Tardy./
But she made a triumphant and well-publicized return for Season 10 last year.
The three-part Real Housewives reunion special to which Cohen refers above kicked off on April 8 and has already stirred more than its share of hilarious controversy.
Case in point?
Marlon Wayans actually reminded the world he’s still alive a few days ago when he dissed Kim via Instagram by sharing an image of her from the reunion and writing:
“No we are not in production on White Chicks 2. The f–k?!”
Zolciak was offended by this jab.
“Was always a super big fan of yours and my kids loved you,” she wrote in the comments section. “This hurts but I guess its all for laughs.”
Hey, we laughed.
And we also assume we’ll see plenty of Kim going forward, despite this declaration.
She has quite the strong social media presence, having formed somewhat of a partnership with daughter Brielle.
They are always joking and posing together on Instagram and we’d be stunned if they don’t sign up for their own series at some point.
Just two days ago, perhaps in reply to this stage in her life and whatever the future holds, Zolciak wrote online:
Successful people maintain a positive focus in life no matter what is going on around them.
They stay focused on their past successes rather than their past failures, and on the next action steps they need to take to get them closer to the fulfillment of their goals rather than all the other distractions that life presents to them.
Will you miss her in Atlanta?
