We broke the news that on Thursday night, Kenya appeared at an event thrown by housewife Cynthia Bailey. And that event was filmed for the upcoming season of The Atlanta Housewives. Kenya appeared on camera - and had multiple interactions with all the housewives present, including Nene!

After the filming stopped, MTO News exclusively learned Kenya spoke with production and after a long and heartfelt discussion - the leading housewife agreed to continue filming for the remainder of the season - which finishes up this weekend.

Kenya also agreed to film a series of confessionals, and to appear on the reunion show.

MTO News can confirm that Bravo and Kenya are taking steps now to have her RE-JOIN the cast officially for the following season.

A Bravo insider told MTO News, "There's been a lot of bitterness, but it's not worth it. In the end Kenya needs us, and the [Atlanta Housewives franchise] needs Kenya."

Kenya is slated to become the second highest paid housewife, behind Nene, if she returns to the show.
