Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams should consider herself a lucky woman these days. She was facing 5 years for protesting outside of the Kentucky Attorney General’s home over the officers behind the killing of Breonna Taylor not being arrested. She ended up being released shortly afterwards and said it was “my pleasure” in regards to the entire incident.

Williams now, unlike many in the country has a job to return to in the Real Housewives of Atlanta but with caveat. Production has told her that in order for her to start back filming, she needs to go into quarantine for 14 days first. She first came on the show in 2012 and has quickly risen to become a fan favorite. She’s also been nicknamed the “Real Housewife of Activism” amid her protest. And it turns out it’s in her blood. She said in a recent Bravo Watch What Happens Live appearance that while protesting with her grandfather at 6 years old, she was chased by a KKK member. Most could only imagine.
Also expected to return to the show is NeNe Leakes who was rumored to have not only been fired from the show but to be replaced by comedian Monique. Bravo and Monique have both denied both rumors. She’s also finally getting her own show after accusing Wendy Williams’ ex-husband from trying to block her from having her own show as well as Kandi Burruss. The show, Glamsquad Showdown is E!’s new reality glam series that she’s co-hosting alongside Brad Goreski.
Someone not returning is America’s Next Top Model star Eva Marcille. In a statement to The Jasmine Brand she stated, “I appreciate the bond of friendship that I have made with several of my castmates and the strong personal relationships I have with numerous executives and producers at the Bravo and Truly Entertainment companies.”
She continued saying, “I am thankful for the opportunity I was provided. However, after speaking with my family and representatives, I believe that what I hope to accomplish for the culture and community will be better served by focusing on other opportunities. I look forward to serving my community on the Rickey Smiley Morning show and finding ways to be a voice during this transformational time in our country for people of color.”
So who all can’t wait for season 13? We know season 12 just finished and we just saw the reunion but we’re counting down. The season has already begun filming this week.
