While there are two Real Housewives shows in full swing (and another to premiere next month), several other members of the franchise are taking a break. And what does a hiatus mean? Casting rumors galore!

The Real Housewives of Atlanta

There’s been much speculation about whether several of the ladies of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta would return after the dramatic last season. Porsha Williams was removed from the reunion after attacking Kenya Moore which lead people to believe she’d be fired. Phaedra Parks’ husband Apollo Nida pled guilty to fraud, which will most likely send him to jail. And NeNe Leakes seemed to grow tired of the show that made her famous. 

But all six ladies, including everyone listed above and Kandi Burruss and Cynthia Bailey, will be returning for season 7, according to E! News.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

Both Joyce Giraud and Carlton Gebbia were fired from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills after only one season each last month, and so now Bravo is looking for new cast members to replace them.

While it may have been rumored that they were looking to hire back Camille Grammer, she shut down the notion on Twitter, saying that she’s too busy dealing with medical issues and just trying to get healthy.

While we’ve already heard that both Yolanda Foster and Lisa Vanderpump are trying to get Mohammed Hadid’s fiance, Shiva Safai, to appear, Christine Chiu is another woman being rumored to be the new star. According to RadarOnline, Christine’s husband is a plastic surgeon (so they are presumably very rich) and this is the third time Christine has tried to be on RHOBH

The Real Housewives of Miami

Joanna Krupa of The Real Housewives of Miami is shooting down rumors that she’ll be transferring coasts to star on RHOBH. She told Access Hollywood that she and her husband are not planning on moving and it’s only ever just been a rumor.

And although RHOM has not officially been renewed yet, she seemed to indicate that even if it was, she would not sign on for another year.

“Ever since Miami finished, I’ve been focusing on so many more things in my life,” she said. “I think it’s much more healthy to discontinue that run. Housewives was an amazing chapter of my life. It was great because it saved my relationship with my husband and we had an amazing fairytale wedding, but I think it’s time to move on.”
