Filming for the upcoming season of the Real Housewives of Atlanta is still a ways off but cast members are already preparing for their time in front of the cameras. Bravo has not announced an official cast list for Season 12, but there are rumors that Kenya Moore is looking to win her peach back.
In a recent interview, RHOA star Cynthia Bailey opened up about Moore’s rumored return. Bailey would not confirm that Moore is in contract talks with Bravo, but she did confess that bringing Moore back would be a good move for ratings.
It’s official. Kenya Moore will be back with a peach 🍑 on #RHOA for season 12!!! Read FULL story + EXCLUSIVE details on https://t.co/77UV8aDsOJ (LINK IN BIO) https://t.co/tILYi7icIO… https://t.co/k5JpZkBooQ

“Kenya Moore is definitely good for the show,” Bailey shared, adding that Moore is “in a really, really beautiful place.”
That said, Bailey is still good friends with Moore, so a recommendation from her is not that surprising. In fact, Bailey butted heads with NeNe Leakes this season when she invited Moore to a cast party. The drama then heated up during the reunion, and inside sources claim that Leakes was so angry that she lashed out at Bailey.
Insiders also say Leakes discovered that Bailey has been lobbying to bring Moore back next season. It is not clear if producers are seriously thinking about giving Moore her peach back, but she would definitely make things interesting between Leakes and Bailey. Moore was a part of the RHOA until Season 10. She appeared as a guest this season and had a limited role in the drama.
According to Reality Blurb, other potential names have been thrown in the mix for Season 12. This includes Tamar Braxton, Phaedra Parks, and possible downgrades for Shamari DeVoe and Eva Marcille.

Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen recently said that Braxton is not going to be a part of the show, but the verdict is still out on rest of the ladies.
Bravo has not announced when casting will begin for the new season.
New episodes of the Real Housewives of Atlanta – possibly with the return of Kenya Moore – return later this year on Bravo.
