When The Real Housewives of Atlanta stars Phaedra Parks and Porsha Stewart appeared on the fourth hour of the Today Show this morning, they spilled some tea about the fifth season of our favorite show. 

When asked about what it’s like to have two newbies, including Porsha, in the cast, Phaedra said, “It’s always good to have some new blood; we love a little spice in our gumbo down south.”

As for what causes most of the tension this season, Porsha revealed that it was due to “strong personalities.”

“It’s just like your real life: you have girlfriends and you’re not going to like everyone in the group, and that’s how it is for us,” Porsha noted.

Sounds like “strong tension” is code for plenty of drama!
