The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 8: TGJ’s Top 5 Wishes

Published: Thursday 25th Jun 2015 by That Grape Juice

With taping set to commence for season 8 of ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta,’ That Grape Juice countdowns the 5 things that we’d like to see from our favorite melo-drama mama’s during their next run.

5. Reunion


An “all-in” scene with every housewife past and present in order to usher in the new season. Picture it! Nene holds a cookout to start the new season wiping the slate clean with enemies like Kandi Burruss, Sheree Whitfield, and Marlo Hampton being invited for a true feel good, get the hell over it type moment. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills had a mini OG reunion as the original cast members came to Kyle’s annual white party and had a blast on the dance floor. We’d love to see Nene, Kim, Sheree, Lisa, and Deshawn reunite at said scene for a cute 1, 2 Step.

4. Bring Back Sheree Whitfield!


We’ve been saying this forever! Andy, if you’re reading this we need our She by Sheree! We want to know what’s going on with Chateau Sheree as well! Like, just who can bring that Southern sass we’ve grown accustomed to? Sheree Whitfield, that’s who! Who gon’ check me boo?

3. Genuine Stories


An example of a Housewives brand that is exploring real issues are the Real Housewives of Orange County, celebrating their 10th season we’re set to see Shannon Beador tackle her husband David’s infidelity, trouble maker Tamra Judge find Christianity (thank goodness), and the overall mother of all Housewives Vicki Gunvalson deal not only with her boyfriend Brooks Ayers’ cancer diagnosis but the unfortunate passing of her mother during filming. If these ladies can be so transparent and have REAL things going on, certainly the Atlanta girls can deliver a side of realism with the sass and shade we’ve come to love as well.

2. New Girls


Not just any new girls, some with real relationships to the cast. The cast from season 5 – 7 eventually did damaging things to each other that are far beyond repair and now it’s obvious that if Kenya, Phaedra, and Porsha are on the same cast it will be the fourth season in a row of the same old song and dance. Demetria would have been a perfect addition this season as she is an actress, booked singer, and dates the infamous Roger Bobb, however with 8 girls filming last season, she got lost in the shuffle of shade. People were nervous with the exits of Sheree and Kim and we were brought in the crazy that is Kenya Moore and our favorite history teacher Porsha Williams. Hopefully we get women that are equally as dynamic.

1. The Ladies Moving On


Over the past season I’m sure it was hard to get the ladies together and genuinely get along. If the rumors ring true about Nene, Kandi, and Kenya being the only solid peach holders SO FAR this season, hopefully Nene can truly move past her issues with Kandi and Kenya to make for an entertaining show. Word on the streets here in Atlanta is that there are some new faces, and an old face or two popping up and what is making the Real Housewives of New York City a huge success is that they fight like cats and dogs, but genuinely do care about one another so they fight, make-up, and move on. Lather, rinse, repeat.

    Why are these ratchet h*** still on TV? Which homosexual came up with this mess of a show?

    • Molly June 25, 2015

      What shows are you a fan of?

      • LB June 25, 2015

        I like science fiction, action, adventure, thriller and anime, suspense drama.

        – Game of thrones
        – The 100
        – Naruto
        – Attack on titan
        – Pretty little liars
        – Defiance
        – The originals

        Just to name a few.

      • Molly June 25, 2015

        Pretty little liars slays!!!!!!!!! Even tho im kinda disappointed with s6 so far. Who is your fav? I live for Mona, Spencer, and Hanna.

      • LB June 25, 2015

        I like Spencer

    • OMG Logic!!! June 25, 2015

      Girl… judging by some of the trash in your list, you’ve got no room to criticize this show. I mean Naruto? SMDH bottom of the barrel anime.

      • What now June 25, 2015


      • Molly June 25, 2015

        Bless lovebirds heart.

      • LB June 25, 2015

        What’s wrong with Naruto? The action scenes are awesome plus the storyline is pretty good.

        You’re probably so gay you cannot stretch your hand far enough to wipe your as$, hence your enjoyment of trashy reality shows like this one.

      • OMG Logic!!! June 25, 2015

        What’s wrong with Naruto? Let me do a quick run down:

        1) Riddled with Cliches
        2) Some of the laziest animation ever seen in a Shounen (and for one of the most profitable manga/anime is just inexcusable)
        3) Horrid character development (anyone remember anyone other than the protagonists? No because Kishimoto apparently forgot they existed as well)
        4) Plot holes galore. The amount of glaring backtracking and story changing that Kishimoto did during the 2nd half of the story is horrible.
        5) Power creep. Oh remember how Madara is being built up as this Godly unstoppable villain? Let me bring this random “mother of Jutsu” that obliterates him completely out of nowhere. THEN let me make Naruto and Sasuke trump her as well! Because Plot-no-Jutsu!

      • LB June 25, 2015

        You probably think those things because you watch the show and don’t read the manga. If you read the manger first and then watch the show, the experience is so much better.

        I am not going to argue your points mostly because I don’t feel like it. Enjoy your reality TV.

      • OMG Logic!!! June 25, 2015

        I read the manga as it was coming out lol. Although to Naruto’s credit, it never got to the ludicrously bad level that Bleach got to, and it at least had a very solid first half (Beginning, Chunin exams, Sanin appearance, Sasuke retrieval). That manga and anime was just an insult to readers everywhere.

    • You tried June 25, 2015

      Dream on TGJ SERIOUSLY u want Sheree to come back?? For what her time was up lol chateaux Sheree is in foreclosure lmao that’s all u need to know ! And NENE LEAKS is a boss lady she doesn’t need to hold a peace treaty between any of the ladies! She tried that ! ITS U THAT NEED TO “MOVE ON”

  2. Mother Mariah June 25, 2015

    Im just glad Claudia is gone.

    • Kayla C June 25, 2015

      I’ll be satisfied once Phaedra or porsha is gone, one of the two has to go

  3. rellz June 25, 2015

  4. AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig June 25, 2015

    My wishes
    1. Kenya will finally find a man that she isn’t paying by the hour
    2. Nene aka NayNay will upgrade her chicken chow-mein noodle hairstyles
    3. Demetria will go away
    4. Nene and Cynthia will work things out
    5. Phaedra will find herself a good chocolate man

    • Molly June 25, 2015


  5. Molly June 25, 2015

    We need this upcoming season to be epic. Tbh the Porsha Kenya Nene and Phaedra drama is so tired. But I still want those four on the show hopefully Sheree comes back she’ll change the dynamics.

  6. AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig June 25, 2015

    Demetria is a damn fool. How you gon let some dude hit it for 8 years with no commitment, and then at the BedroomKandi party you find out he’s been fvcking some blue wigged trick. Phaedra’s tea is always steaming hot, because Demetria’s career is not going to take off at 36 and Ms Park read tf outta her. #BYE

  7. What now June 25, 2015


  8. Casual-T June 25, 2015

    Compare this show, editing-wise, to Love & Hip Hop Atlanta. LHHA has a core made up of the ladies and gentleman shown in the credits — Mimi, Karlie Redd, Erica, Rasheeda, Joseline, and Stevie J — plus several others who bring in their own storylines. Most notably, this season has seen Joc and KD have a dominating storyline despite neither being credited as a star of the show. RHOA needs more personalities to keep from having to overwork all of the same storylines. I think they should bring back Sheree and Marlo, Mallory (Cynthia’s sister), plus Diana or Lexi, while keeping all of the current ladies. I also think Ashlee Wilson Hawn of Big Rich Atlanta would be a great addition. And, no more transplants! — Atlanta women only.

  9. OMG Logic!!! June 25, 2015

    Where’s Kim Zolciack though? I’m still waiting for her return.

  10. Rihanna’s biggest fan June 25, 2015

    This show is so f****** stupid

  11. R June 25, 2015

    The cast I want, in order of importance:

    Kim Fields

    Potential newbies:
    Monifah or Keke from R&B Divas: Atlanta

    Claudia – I think she is the wittiest person to have ever been on this show, but she really did seem to struggle for a storyline. Fantastic personality better suited for a different kind of show

    • AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig June 26, 2015

      You’re totally right about Claudia. She was witty but the producers seemed to force her into storylines i.e other peoples business all the time. It wouldn’t have been so bad if she had a man on her arm or at least went on a date but she really didn’t have much going on, in comparison to what the other girls brought in on the 1st season. Nene told the producers what time it was LOL

  12. Phillip June 25, 2015

    Why do people keep comparing RHO -Atlanta to New York CIty or Beverly Hills? Last time I checked the Atlanta series had the best ratings out of all of them so they don’t need to change a damn thing! And as far bringing back Sheree, she washed up and delusioned as ever so its pointless to bring her back. I think they should bring Chili into the mix or Ciara!

  13. @JanetCIARA_ June 25, 2015

    Im bored with the franchise, They need to introduce an ALL NEW cast!

  14. You wanna love it right bettor like you do then my funky money June 26, 2015

    ????☕️ wow people will watch it

  15. justmeeeee June 26, 2015

    Nene is a BOSS and that’s fact #1

    Hell No I do not want Sheree back because she is too angry and way too broke to be on there. Kim can stay gone too.

    I was super glad to hear Claudia’s boring b*** is gone

    Kim FIELDS seems cool.
    They need to give Portia her peach and get rid of demetria.

    Add 1 more decent housewife and let Marlo be a friend of the show.

    Honestly Kandi’s cry-baby self can go too
