Bravo released a teaser to the fiery three-part “Real Housewives of Atlanta” reunion show starting April 8 and concluding April 22.
Of course, Kim Zolciak and NeNe Leakes go at it over Roachgate and Kim gets all emotional. There’s some sort of situation where Marlo Hampton supposedly tried to blackmail NeNe. And can Porsha Williams’ apologies ever be deemed real?
This season has seen a major dropoff in overnight ratings numbers in recent weeks, falling to 2 million when 2.5 to 3 million had been the norm. Last year’s overnight reunion numbers hovered around 3 million with more than 4 million after DVR usage was added.
Bravo provides a summary of how each episode will go:
The three-part reunion kicks off with a bang on Sunday, April 8 at 8PM ET/PT when a shocking revelation is dropped early, leaving the ladies utterly speechless. Then, Kandi and Porsha get into a heated exchange of words as they attempt to unpack their complicated relationship and work through unresolved issues. Next, the ladies are joined by Marlo Hampton and Kenya is taken to task on keeping the details of her marriage hidden behind closed doors. NeNe reflects on the emotional season she’s endured and Porsha works to defend herself against a myriad of accusations that her apologies are insincere.
During part two of the reunion airing Sunday, April 15 at 8PM ET/PT Eva Marcille joins the ladies and wastes no time questioning the sincerity of Cynthia’s love interest. Keeping on the topic of love, the ladies get candid with their opinions surrounding Shereé’s prison bae and both she and Cynthia find themselves in the hot seat defending their relationship status. As the dust settles, tensions rise once again when Kim returns to the reunion couches for the first time since season six, bringing her face-to-face with frenemy turned enemy NeNe for the first time in months.
In the final installment of the reunion, airing Sunday, April 22 at 8PM ET/PT emotions reach a boiling point with Kim at the center of it all. Kim reflects on her return to the show which leads to a fiery verbal encounter between she and Kenya. There is no holding back when NeNe and Kim go head-to-head in the ultimate war of words, but with a decade worth of friendship between them, could this be the final breaking point?
