The Real Housewives Of Atlanta Is Reportedly Getting A Major Cast Shakeup For Season 14 — Find Out Who’s In And Out (For Now)

According to a new report, the full-time cast of The Real Housewives of Atlanta will return for season fourteen.

MTO News reported that renewal contracts have been sent out, and for the first time ever, no Real Housewives of Atlanta cast members have been fired, according to All About The Tea.

Apparently, the outlet spoke to a Bravo executive, who allegedly confirmed that no peaches were revoked, amid a few salary twists and turns. 

“Everyone was asked back, except Tanya Sam– who made it clear that she no longer wants to be a part of the show,” the network insider confirmed via All About The Tea

The production source revealed that a salary cut turns out to be a demotion for one cast member. 

“But there has been a reshuffling of the cast – Kandi got a substantial pay cut, and Kenya got a raise,” the exec said, describing the pay cut as a “demotion.” 

The insider shared that Kenya Moore is now the highest-paid cast member, making approximately $1.5 million for the upcoming season. Meanwhile, Kandi Burruss will earn $1 million, and Porsha comes in just under Burruss’. The source also revealed that Kandi had been last season’s highest earner, bringing in close to $2 million.  

“Drew and Latoya will be back, and LaToya was offered a peach,” the insider shared. But it’s unknown at this time if Ali has accepted the network’s offer. 

While the entire cast is likely to return, Bravo is still looking out for potential newbies to shake things up for Season 14. 

“We’re looking for potential new cast members – and I expect there to be new ladies next season,” the source told the outlet, reported All About The Tea

Burruss previously hinted that she was unsure if she was returning next season. Burruss noted that she’s “always contemplating” a potential exit from the franchise. “It may be my time to say goodbye, and it may be my time to just be like, ‘I’ll stay a while longer,’” she told Access Hollywood back in April 2021. “You never know, I’m still kind of figuring things out.”

Last month, sources claimed that the network was looking to shake up the cast due to the show’s underwhelming ratings.

Ratings showed the premiere episode of Season 13 only pulled in 1.4 million viewers, which was a drastic drop from the previous season's first episode.

“RHOA was once Bravo’s highest-rated housewives show but has lost its superiority over other shows in the franchise,” the source told The Sun. “There’s going to be a big cast shake-up next season and some producers are mulling over asking Phaedra Parks to return.”

“Many insiders believe NeNe would help drive ratings, but her feud with producers seems to show no signs of letting up,” the source continued. “Fans were shocked when she left and there has been a question mark over whether she'll ever return, and it looks unlikely.”

The source added, “The hope is that having fan favorites like Phaedra come back will help the show rise back into the 2 million viewers-a-week arena.”

NeNe Leakes has encouraged viewers to boycott Bravo after she was let go from the Bravo hit reality series amid her messy feud with Andy Cohen. 

Parks joined RHOA back during the show's third season and was let go after filming of the Season 9 reunion taping. If you recall, it was revealed during the season 9 reunion that Parks was the one who told Porsha Williams about Kandi and husband Todd Tucker’s alleged plan to drug Porsha and have sex with her. An allegation that Burruss has denied, which resulted in Parks getting fired from the show.

The current RHOA cast consists of Cynthia Bailey, Drew Sidora, Kandi Burruss, Kenya Moore, and Porsha Williams along with ‘friends’ LaToya Ali, Marlo Hampton, and Shamea Morton.
