Bravo has finally released the official cast photo for season 5 of their hit reality show, The Real Housewives of Atlanta
Kandi Burruss, Nene Leakes, Cynthia Bailey & Phaedra Parks return for the drama, while Kenya Moore and Porsha Stewart are the two newbies on board (which I exclusively revealed many many months ago HERE and HERE).
Noticeably absent? Sheree Whitfield (who quit after she got fired at the end of Season 4), Kim Zolciak (hate to say I told you so) and Marlo Hampton, who apparently offended Bravo higher ups last season with her gay slur.

was dapper in her Black suit as she supported her hubby Peter Thomas
‘s men’s health black tie event last night by dressing in men’s attire (September 19, 2012).
Cynthia was joined by fellow RHOA cast mates Kandi Burruss, Phaedra Parks and newbies Kenya Moore & Porsha Stewart who all came in support of Thomas’ “Salute to Excellence Awards: Men’s Health Awareness Charity Mixer” which was held at Atlanta’s Biltmore Hotel ballroom.
The event was hosted by all of the real house “husbands.”
Apollo Nida, Todd Tucker, Kordell Stewart and Leon (Bailey’s ex) all played host, and Nene Leakes (who did not attend because she is filming in LA) was represented by her fake ex-hubby Gregg Leakes .

, was the guest of honor recently at the Black Girls Run event in Atlanta (September 15, 2012).
Black Girls Run held a weekend long 5k/10k race in their ‘drive to end hunger‘. Whitfield didn’t run with the Black Girls because she “tore her ACL,” however she graciously signed autographs for fans of her fitness regimen.

shared the photo above recently of all the Season 5 “housewives” in one place.
The season hasn’t even started yet and Bravo hasn’t “officially” announced any new housewives but pictured above is Kenya Moore, Phaedra Parks, Burruss, Nene Leakes, Porsha Williams-Stewart and Cynthia Bailey… noticeably absent? Kim Zolciak, who I told you months ago, won’t be involved as much this season.
[Sidebar: Is it ok for me to gloat and say ‘I told you so!’ yet about the newbies? Or are y’all still questioning my credibility? ]
Kandi and the RHOA crew visited Nene in Hollywood and took the photo on the set of “The New Normal.” I’m not sure if the ladies were merely visiting to show support or if it will be part of the show, but we’ll find out soon enough.

has become pretty crafty at answering interview questions these days.
The blond leggy granny hit up Conan O’Brien’s late night TBS talk show a few days ago and he seemed quite enamored with Mrs. Leakes, who was there to promote her upcoming sitcom, The New Normal.
With a few smooth compliments about her beauty, Conan managed to get NeNe to open up about her love life and when he asked NeNe if she was in a relationship, the Atlanta “housewife” revealed that she’s “legally single” and dating men (insert side-eye).
I guess that means she’s just paying Gregg to be her “driver” these days.
