NeNe Leakes and Claudia Jordan may be MIA from the upcoming season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, but the rest of our favorite Georgia peaches will be back according to OK! Magazine. Kandi Burruss, Kenya Moore, Phaedra Parks, Porsha Williams and Cynthia Bailey are on board for season 8. Actually, make that five and a half, Burruss is pregnant with her first child with hubby, Todd Tucker.

Porsha Williams will resume her status as a full-time cast member. Williams was downgraded to a “friend” after her physical altercation with Kenya Moore during the season 6 reunion show. Even though Williams was demoted, she was very present throughout season 7 thanks to her ongoing feud with Claudia Jordan and speculation about a mysterious sugar daddy paying for her lavish lifestyle.

William’s love life should be front and center once again, since the reality diva recently announced she’s dating NFL star, Duke Williams.

“Porsha is getting her peach back,” a source told OK!

With Leakes and Jordan departing from the show, it has been reported that former RHOA star Sheree Whitfield and actress Kim Fields (Facts of Life, Living Single) are being considered as replacements.

Filming has begun for the upcoming season, but a premiere date has yet to be announced.
