Everything You Need to Know About Season 12

From new babies to new beginnings, we're spilling all the tea on this season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta before it premieres Sunday, November 3 at 8/7c.

Let's catch up with each of our Atlanta queens and find out what we can expect! We've got exclusive updates from each Housewife, including some seriously surprising marriage news... And since nothing is more revealing than a new tagline, we'll be giving you a sneak peek at their soon-to-be-iconic signature sayings.  

Kenya Moore

"I was gone with the wind, but now I'm back and twice as fabulous."

Twirling back onto the RHOA scene, Kenya is ready to slay. She's loving being a mom to daughter Brooklyn, who is quite the athlete already: "That little girl...I don't know if she's going to be like an Olympian or a star athlete, but she is really, really strong, and I just love watching her in action." She also hit a major milestone, saying her first word! 

I really do have this fairy tale life... Or do I?

But everything may not be perfect for Kenya. She recently announced her divorce from husband Marc Daly, whom you'll see this season. As Kenya says, "I really do have this fairy tale life... Or do I?"

Cynthia Bailey

"The only time that I look back is to see how far I've come."

While her relationship with Nene may be rocky, Cynthia's romance with Mike Hill has never been better. And this season we'll get to see their engagement!  Will it be a destination wedding? A courthouse wedding? While there's a lot of planning to be done, Cynthia is definitely excited to #CHill: "I just know that I love Mike, and I can't wait to become Mrs. Hill." The couple has locked in a date for their nuptials however: October 10, 2020! Evidently Kandi was the one who gave her the idea to tie the knot on that day. 

I just know that I love Mike, and I can't wait to become Mrs. Hill.

Cynthia has also launched her newest business, the Bailey Wine Cellar! Now you can go have a "nasty old glass of wine" in Atlanta just like one of the 'Wives!

Porsha Williams

"This phoenix has risen, and I'm saying bye, ashes!"

New mom Porsha is bonding with all of the ladies as she navigates motherhood, but it sounds like there's definitely been some drama between her and Dennis, teasing the "ups and downs" in their relationship that you'll see in this "roller coaster" season. Can Porsha and Dennis make it work?

With relationships you have ups and you have some downs...

Porsha also has a lot of thoughts on Kenya's return... Where do the former frenemies stand now? Porsha promises that Kenya is "serving the kids, honey" and bringing it full force. But she's also seen a different side of her, noting "she's a mommy now, so she's got that soft side."

Eva Marcille

"I'm living my dreams not above my means."

Eva has her hands full between her new baby, new pregnancy, and new house! After all of the gossip surrounding her living situation, Eva has announced she's found her "forever home" for her family and is ready to be settled in Atlanta, especially with baby number three on the way.

We are moving into our forever home!

She also cryptically teased that the "tables have turned" this season on certain relationships. What does that mean? You'll have to watch and see...

NeNe Leakes

"I'm on a spiritual journey and still traveling first class."

Last season was tough for Nene between Gregg's cancer and her falling out with former BFF Cynthia. Things are looking up for her and Gregg though, and Nene revealed that they're doing better than ever. Part of it may be because the couple is exploring a new chapter in their relationship. According to Nene: "I'm not sure if we're going to have an open marriage, but we're definitely having a lot of open conversations..." This moment was teased in the season trailer, but time will tell how their marriage evolves. 

I'm not sure if we're going to have an open marriage...

As for her and Cynthia, Nene remained tight lipped. We'll just have to tune in to see how that unfolds!

Kandi Burruss

"Don't check for me unless you got a check for me."

Kandi's not only expanding her business empire, but her family as well! She's announced that she's moved forward with her surrogate, so a new baby is on the horizon, and her son Ace is super excited to be a big brother. Kandi also revealed that "three-year-old genius" Ace is already learning Mandarin. According to Kandi he's "not fluent yet, but he's saying a lot of words." Plus he has the "coolest" and "sweetest" personality to boot!

[Ace] is not fluent yet, but he's saying a lot of words in Mandarin.
