Here’s What To Expect On Season 10 Of ‘Real Housewives Of Atlanta’
The ladies of The Real Housewives of Atlanta are back for a tenth season of the hit show. Sunday Nov. 5 at 8/7c on Bravo. Here’s a rundown of what’s ahead for this group of frenemies who are never short on shade.
New Friends, Old Enemies
By now you know that Kim Zolciak Biermann is returning to the show and even though she’s an original cast member, not everyone is excited to have her back in the group. In an exclusive interview with theGrio.com, Kenya Moore revealed that she’s less than impressed with Wig’s return. Eva Marcille isn’t a full-fledged cast member, but she’s sure to bring some new energy to the show this season. Her boyfriend, Michael Sterling, is currently running for Mayor of Atlanta so let’s hope nothing too explosive happens. It looks like Porsha and Phaedra are still on the outs and Porsha’s new “Frack” may be Kim. Wonder if that’s part of the reason for her fallout with Nene? These two pull no punches while attempting to hash out their differences so prepare for some explosive dust-ups between these former friends. Despite years of ups and downs, it seems Nene and Kenya are finally friends.
Expect to see big things from a few of the cast mates when it comes to their love lives. Cynthia is embracing her newly single status and finding out how fabulous turning fifty can be. Now that Chateau Sheree is near completion, Sheree has her sights set on another big house—the penitentiary. It looks like she may be dating an inmate who is known around town for being a con artist. As far as Phaedra’s love life is concerned, rumors have been swirling that she’s getting hot and heavy with Shemar Moore. So far, it’s all speculation, but she’s not going out of her way to deny there’s something going on.

ABC Developing Comedy Series ‘White Dave’ — Produced By Gabrielle Union & Lebron James
ABC is developing a new single-camera comedy from LeBron James’ SpringHill Entertainment, Gabrielle Union and filmmaker David E. Talbert. Written by Talbert (who was behind Almost Christmas and First Sunday) based on his real-life experiences, “White Dave is about a young African-American teenager, who has grown up in an all-white suburb, suddenly moves to an all-black neighborhood when his mom remarries.” This is yet another project for SpringHill, as they are producing a Madame C.J. Walker miniseries for Netflix starring Octavia Spencer, as well as a sneaker culture comedy at Starz. James/SpringHill’s first foray into television, Survivor’s Remorse, was just canceled by Starz. Union will wrap up Being Mary Jane on BET with a TV movie in 2018. She’s also starring in two upcoming films, The Public and Breaking In. https://shadowandact.com/gabrielle-union-abc-comedy-lebron-james-white-dave
