The first trailer for Season 9 of the Real Housewives of Atlanta is finally here! Based on the explosive trailer, fans are in for another drama packed season. However, there were two ladies who didn’t make an appearance in the preview. Where are Kim Zolciak and NeNe Leakes?
Us Magazine reports that the trailer begins with Sheree Whitfield declaring her return to the show following years of being a part-time cast member.
“The bitch is back!” Whitfield says. “And the chateau is finally ready unlike ‘Moore Work Needed Manor.'”
Whitfield was taking shots at Kenya Moore about their race to complete their respective mansions, so it’s clear that their feud hasn’t gotten any better, and Moore didn’t take the insults lying down.
The clip then shows Moore calling out Whitfield about her unfinished estate.
“Ho?! Why you running away with your unfinished ass house?!” she told her co-star.
Along with her feud with Whitfield, Moore is struggling with her boyfriend, Matt Jordan.
“He kicked in my hotel room door,” Moore shared alongside clips of Jordan wrecking her house. “Just mad and hitting the walls.”
Speaking of dysfunctional relationships, Cynthia Bailey is still working through problems with her estranged husband, Peter Thomas. Bailey decided to part ways this past summer. She and Thomas had been married for six years.
“I want a divorce,” Bailey is heard telling a lawyer in the clip.
Despite the divorce talk, Thomas isn’t ready to give up on the marriage just yet.
“I love my wife,” he says. “I was in it ’til we died.”
Meanwhile, the drama on this season of the Real Housewives of Atlanta really kicks up after Phaedra Parks opens up about a client who threw a grenade at her business office.
“He was looking for you and he was going to blow you the f**k up,” Mama Joyce, the mother of Kandi Burruss, told her.
According to Bustle, the trailer makes it look like Parks and Moore are best buds now. As fans are well aware, the two ladies had a history of fighting and used to hate having to see each other in public. Did they settle their beef in Season 9? Or will they go back to their old ways?
As far as Burruss is concerned, the reality star is still adjusting to her new life with Ace, her 9-month-old son. According to Bravo TV, Burruss is also having issues with her daughter Riley, who is experiencing some growing pains of her own.
“Riley’s old enough to say whether she wants to have a relationship with her dad,” Burruss shared in the clip.
Riley has had a fractured relationship with her father, Russell Spencer, but it now sounds like Burruss wants her to reach out and re-connect with Spencer.
While it is clear that the ladies of RHOA will bring plenty of drama this season, fans are left wondering if Zolciak and Leakes will make an appearance. The former RHOA stars were rumored to be in negotiations for a return this season. Unfortunately, neither of them made an appearance in the trailer, so unless Bravo is keeping things tightly under wraps, it doesn’t look like Zolciak and Leakes will have cameos in Season 9.
At the same time, Kim Fields was rumored to be making a brief appearance this season. Fields returned for a short cameo in Season 8, but she will not be doing the same this time around.
Despite the absence of RHOA’s most beloved cast members, fans are still in for an explosive season when the hit reality show returns in November.
Season 9 of the Real Housewives of Atlanta will return to Bravo on Nov. 6. Be sure to check out the epic teaser below.
