Bravo renews 'Real Housewives of Atlanta,' two related spinoffs

Bravo today renewed its most popular series "Real Housewives of Atlanta" for a seventh season, set to return this fall.

Two spinoffs were announced as well: a third season of Kim Zolciak's "Don't Be Tardy" will return this fall. (Zolciak left the show season five.) Also, Bravo will be airing a short-term series about Kandi Burruss and her recent nuptials to Todd Tucker.

The most recent episode of "Real Housewives" this past Sunday drew 3.66 million viewers, its worst performance since Dec. 15. It's averaging 3.8 million viewers this season, its best yet. The season finale airs Sunday, followed by the three-part reunion show.

Here are details Bravo provided of Kandi's series, which is similar to NeNe's recent spinoff about her marriage called "I Dream of NeNe."

“The Real Housewives of Atlanta: Kandi’s Wedding” (working title)

Produced by True Entertainment with Steven Weinstock, Glenda Hersh, Lauren Eskelin and Carlos King serving as Executive Producers. Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker also serve as Executive Producers.

You are cordially invited to celebrate the wedding of Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker.  Against vocal family opposition that played out dramatically in season six of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” Kandi and Todd have decided to move forward and tie the knot.  Each episode follows Kandi and Todd as they plan a larger-than-life “Coming to America” themed wedding ceremony, signifying the couple’s initial introduction in Africa.

In the press release, there was no reference to other spinoff ideas related to Phaedra Parks and the men of "Real Housewives of Atlanta."

In other "Real Housewives" news, Kenya Moore has threatened to get Porsha Williams fired for attacking her at the "Real Housewives of Atlanta" reunion taping last month at the Biltmore, but the other "Housewives" are not going to take this lightly, according to sources with TMZ.

NeNe Leakes, Cynthia Bailey, Phaedra and Kandi are reportedly banding together to support Williams. They are threatening to leave the show if Bravo executives dare fire Porsha, an idea they came up with during Kandi's wedding this past Friday.

I have not been able to corroborate this information.
