After a week of swirling rumours, Kerry Katona appears to have confirmed that she’s joining The Real Housewives of Cheshire. While nothing’s official yet, Kerry has used the immediate wake of her firing from Atomic Kitten (after a bitter feud with Natasha Hamilton) to move in with Ampika and make some vague Instagram posts about “starting the next chapter.” Sounds legit to us.
If you’re one of our many foreign readers to whom this impenetrable Brit babble means nothing: Kerry Katona is an original member of the pop group Atomic Kitten (“Whole Again” remains a jam) who’s more famous as a tabloid staple and perennial reality show contestant. She also partook in a series of disastrous off-the-wagon morning TV appearances and a couple of kicky frozen food ads. RHOCheshire is in every way the next logical step in her career.
With Kerry in the hopper and Ampika eying a return (The Secret works!), RHOCheshire is poised to shatter records as the first Housewives franchise with a 19-member cast.
