How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta on Peacock and the Bravo App.

And as Season 14 has been airing, they have continued to put the ups and downs of their life together out there. In the August 7 episode of RHOA, several new insights into their marriage and relationship as parents came to light, including Ralph revealing that he no longer planned to adopt Drew’s son, Josiah, from a previous relationship.

Drew opened up about that emotional topic in the recent episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta After Show.

“We were in Jamaica. I’m hearing this literally for the first time. He made an announcement [previously] to me and my mom that he was going to adopt Josiah and it was this whole moment that we were, like, literally in tears,” she recalled in the RHOA After Show, before opening up about Ralph’s decision not to pursue the adoption and why, as you can see in the clip above.

Drew also revealed more about why she “felt blindsided” by Ralph telling the group about his decision during the Jamaican vacation.

As it turns out, Ralph also revealed during the August 7 RHOA episode his plans to write a book about being a stepparent (Drew and Ralph have two kids together, son Machai and daughter Aniya). In the RHOA After Show clip below, Drew opens up about what it felt like to learn about the book deal and being asked to write a foreword for the book. She also shared an update on how much he’s been sharing with her about the book today.

“I think it’s an important conversation that needs to be had, because we don’t talk about it. There is no blueprint on how to blend a family, but it is so challenging,” she noted. “I felt like he might be on to something [with this book] and I want to support him because it could help a lot of people.”
