New ventures, sizzling romance, a whole lotta donkey booty, and two new Housewives arrive to turn up the heat in Hotlanta…

On November 4, The Real Housewives of Atlanta returns for its fifth season welcoming two newcomers, Kenya Moore and Porsha Stewart, while series veteran Kim Zolciak fades to the back and will pop up from time to time.  Earlier this year, we also learned Sheree Whitfield is no longer a cast member.

So, what have the Georgia Peaches been up to?

This fall we will see NeNe continuing her acting pursuits on NBC’s The New Normal.  She is also the author of Never Make the Same Mistake Twice and is an advocate against domestic abuse..  She and Gregg maintain a complex relationship, which causes her to struggle with moving on.

Cynthia dabbles in pageants now!  She and Peter recently celebrated their two-year anniversary and their union continues to grow strong.  As thriving entrepreneurs, they are faced daily with the struggle to maintain balance with work, their relationship, and family.

With baby Ayden now talking and potty trained, Phaedra is able to attend mortician school full time in an attempt to become the ”Vera Wang” of funerals.  She and husband Apollo create a fitness video to help others get a “donkey booty” but face drama along the way.

Actress/director/producer and CEO of Moore Vision Media (also known as former Miss USA) Kenya Moore is a hopeless romantic and is ready to start a family with her Mr. Right.  She finds Atlanta to be the perfect environment to grow a business and a rich social life.
