Oh, you thought the clash of egos over Chateau Sheree and Moore Manor was a relic, a thing of past, left behind in season eight of The Real Housewives of Atlanta? How quaint.
As this exclusive sneak peek of the season nine premiere proves, the one-upping over real estate between Kenya Moore and Sheree Whitfield rages on. When Kenya decides to throw herself a housewarming party despite that fact that her home is still weeks away from being done, she can't resist herself and responds to her guest Sheree's compliment with a dig.
"It's been a long journey," Kenya says to Sheree after her soon-to-be neighbor says the house has come a long way. "I can't imagine what five years feels like."
"It's not taken five years. I didn't break ground until 2012. So it's been four—you're off one year," Sheree counters, reminding us that Chateau Sheree has been years in the making. But if you thought that she'd let that shade slide, you don't know Sheree. "But this whole house is the same size of my, uh, master suite," she continues, spilling one of her two beverages in the process.
"If she's gonna throw stones at me, at least throw stones from inside your house," Kenya says in her interview, forgetting that Sheree was a guest in her equally unfinished home who she insulted first.
Much to a silent Cynthia Bailey's (and our) relief, the shade is short-lived as Sheree pivots to who among the crew Kenya had invited to tour her not-quite-finished home. Kandi Burruss? On her way. NeNe Leakes? Can't make it. Phaedra Parks? Bygones be bygones. Porsha Williams. "I didn't because the last time we were all together, she chased some girl out the door," Kenya explains. "I just want to be safe in my own home."
You know what that means: Cut to Porsha picking Phaedra up, ready to be her plus one to the party. Cue the fireworks.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta returns for season nine on Sunday, Nov. 6 at 8 p.m. on Bravo.
(E! and Bravo are both part of the NBCUniversal family.)
