The Real Housewives franchises return to Arena

There is no shortage of drama on Foxtel this November, with new seasons of The Real Housewives of Atlanta and The Real Housewives of New Jersey launching same day as the US.

The new season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta returns with Cynthia Bailey, Eva Marcille, Kandi Burruss, Nene Leakes and Porsha Williams gearing up for more drama. Kenya Moore is back with the family she’s always wanted, ready to spice things up and Marlo Hampton and Tanya Sam return as friends of the cast.

Busy as ever, Cynthia is ecstatic to continue building her entrepreneurial empire, opening Bailey Wine Cellar for all Atlanta wine enthusiasts.  After a whirlwind romance with her boyfriend, she’s on cloud nine after he made it official, proposing to her in front of all her family and friends. Cautious, but optimistic, Cynthia wonders if she can mend her roller-coaster relationship with friend turned foe Nene Leakes. Meanwhile, always moving forward, Nene has reconnected with her husband, who is now cancer-free, but tensions rise when she is reunited with former friends to hash out past grievances.

Still elated from the wedding of her dreams, Eva is expecting baby number three, while juggling the ups and downs of her friendships, the challenges of pregnancy, and trying to find her dream home before the arrival of her baby. In other baby news, Porsha is over the moon about her baby girl Pilar Jhena and couldn’t be more excited to be a mother. Dealing with the aftermath of salacious rumors surrounding her fiancé’s infidelity, she is faced with the cold truth that her happily-ever-after may be on hold until she can figure out where her relationship stands. 

Always in high demand, Kandi’s life shows no signs of slowing down as she expands her empire while expanding her family with the help of a surrogate. Her husband optimistically seeks to open more businesses, but with so many balls in the air, Kandi worries they won’t have time to get everything done before the arrival of their newest family member.

Back and bolder than ever, Kenya has finally gotten what she’s always wanted with her husband and baby Brooklyn, but a fairytale ending isn’t always what it seems and despite her best efforts, her roller coaster relationship may be coming to an end. Although motherhood has been kind to her and she enjoys embracing her softer side, she will never walk away from a challenge or shy away from speaking her mind.
