Bomb Threats, an 'Unstable' Ex and Daddy Issues Dominate New Season of 'Real Housewives of Atlanta'

Bravo fans, buckle up: The Real Housewives of Atlanta is almost back!

In addition to a brand new supertease, PEOPLE can exclusively reveal the official cast announcement for season 9 of the hit series, set to premiere Nov. 6: Cynthia Bailey, Kandi Burruss, Kenya Moore, Phaedra Parks and Porsha Williams are all returning, and RHOA alum Shere√® Whitfield is returning as a full-time housewife. (She previously starred on the show seasons 1–4.)

And while O.G. Atlanta Housewife NeNe Leakes doesn’t appear in the trailer, it certainly still has plenty of the show’s signature blend of nights out, fights and one-liners.

First up, we’ve got Whitfield stirring up drama with Moore over construction at Moore’s new (and still unfinished) home: “The bitch is back and the Chateau is finally ready,” says Whitfield, flaunting her own newly finished mansion. “Unlike ‘More Work Needed Manor!’ ”

“Look, ho—” Moore says, before Whitfield fires back: “Ho?! Why you running away with your unfinished a– house?!”

But Moore has bigger fish to fry: The star is also going through a rollercoaster relationship with her on-again, off-again boyfriend Matt Jordan.

Things appear to be going well at first, with Parks remarking to Moore: “Real sex does you good, girl” — but things quickly take a dark turn.

“He kicked in my hotel room door,” says Moore in the next scene, crying. “Just mad and hitting the walls."
