“Real Housewives of Atlanta” breakout star Kenya Moore and former “Cosby” kid Keshia Knight Pulliam are the names being thrown out.
Moore’s antics on the Bravo reality show has propelled the show to new ratings heights seasons 5 and 6. Knight Pulliam, 34, was Rudy on “The Cosby Show” and con artist Miranda on “Tyler Perry’s House of Payne.” She was the first eliminated from the 2013 ABC celebrity diving show “Splash.”
Donald Trump has highlighted a few Atlanta celebrities over the years on his NBC reality program, including recent “Rachel vs. Guy” winner Herschel Walker, Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins of TLC and Moore’s current nemesis on the show NeNe Leakes. (Leakes just joined “Dancing With the Stars.”)
Other names being thrown about: football player Terrell Owens, newsman Geraldo Rivera, “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” cast mate Brandi Glanville and the dreaded Kate Gosselin.
NBC has not said when this upcoming season will air but the show effectively took the 2013-14 season off. It’s scheduled for sometime during the 2014-15 season. The last cycle ran in the spring of 2013 with Trace Adkins winning an all-star edition.
