Has the official cast of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” been revealed? A photo uploaded by the unofficial Instagram page of RHOA posted a photo showcasing what is believed to be the cast for season 11 of the popular Bravo reality TV series. The caption to the post read, “It’s OFFICIAL! Here’s your cast for season 11. Are y’all here for it? Eva, Tanya and Shamari join Nene, Kandi, Cynthia and Porsha for an interesting season! IT WILL BE EPIC! 👀 #RHOA”
Whether or not this is the official photo, fans were too distracted by the absence of cast member Kenya Moore.
“Where is Kenya!!!!!! Hell no”
“I know Kenya pregnant but I love to see her on the show “Twirl “ where you at?”
“No show without Kenya….Yawnnn lol”
Other fans commented about some issues they had with the promo altogether.
“I need to know why Kandi and Porsha are on the end??”
“I don’t like the picture. They need a do-over.”
“This is a mess…who the heck is that in the middle??? Why is Porsha in the corner?? oh hell nah!!!”
Fans’ inkling that the photo wasn’t the final product may have been on the money. Hours after the photo was released, NeNe Leakes made a statement on her IG page, “It SUCKS to have a LEAKED cast photo out there that doesn’t represent some of us in the best light! funny how this only happens with #RHOA cast! Just know that, this is NOT the OFFICIAL cast photo! Soon come #RHOA @bravotv”
Despite Leakes’ comment disputing the validity of the photo, many believed it’s because her photo was the “least attractive” of the ladies not because it’s not the official cast.
Moore losing her peach was a known-known for some time. Back in August, Kandi Burruss confirmed that Moore was not filming for the new season. While on “The Porsche Foxx Morning Show” she revealed that the mommy-to-be would not be in the new season. “I’m not allowed to say anything..I mean, people already know. It’s all over the internet. My girl, Kenya, she hasn’t been taping with us lately. If that’s gonna change, I don’t know.”
Former “America’s Next Top Model” Eva Marcille took Moore’s place. Newcomers include Shamari DeVoe, wife of R&B singer Ronnie DeVoe and former singer of girl group Blaque. Also, Tanya Sam, a former nurse turned tech entrepreneur who’s married to Dr. Paul Judge.
