Kelli Ferrell On RHOAtlanta

Following a recent cast shuffle, the season 16 costars of The Real Housewives of Atlanta (RHOAtlanta) have finally been announced. The network revealed on May 14 that Porsha Williams will rejoin season 15 stars Kenya Moore and Drew Sidora on the reality show following a two-season break.

Viewers may expect to see more well-known faces in the upcoming season. Cynthia Bailey, who starred in the show for ten years before leaving in 2021, has returned to the cast as a cast friend. Shereé Whitfield, who is a fan favorite, will sadly not be back next year. This month marks the start of production, with the 2025 launch date.

These women need to demonstrate that they possess the necessary skills to appear in a drama with strong characters like Kenya and Porsha.

Production on the series is expected to begin this month, with a 2025 release date established. Shereé Whitfield, Marlo Hampton, and Sanya Richards-Ross are leaving the show, while Kandi Burruss is leaving after 14 years to concentrate on new endeavors.

How Much Is Kelli Ferrell Net Worth?

With a thriving career in the hospitality business, Kelli Ferrell has amassed a net worth under $1 million. She is the chef and owner of Nana’s Chicken Waffles.

Talking about her career, she grew up assisting her mom and grandmother (“Nana”) in the kitchen, making sweet and savory delights such as fried chicken, banana bread, and lemon meringue pie. The Buckhead resident had no idea that long after she reached adulthood she would be using those recipes to create cookbooks and the popular Southern comfort food restaurant Nana’s Chicken-N-Waffles, which will open a second location in Buckhead by the end of 2023 in addition to its current location in McDonough.

“My passion is really for people: seeing them happy, connecting through food and shared experiences,” Ferrell told Simply Buckhead.

Her career as a restaurateur did not begin in the culinary field.

After moving to Atlanta in 2003, she attended Bauder College, a college housed in the Phipps Plaza basement, to study fashion marketing and design. She worked for rapper Bow Wow’s mother Teresa Caldwell after graduating from college in the early 2000s, assisting her in opening a boutique in Atlantic Station. After that, Ferrell went back to her native Maryland to open her own business, which the recession forced to close in 2009.

However, she decided to change her career and began visionboarding her new restaurant concept. The first Nana’s Chicken-N-Waffles was launched in 2016.

Ferrell now refers to her as a “fashion foodie” as she incorporates her style into her work. Her cookbook Kooking with Kelli, for example, is styled like a fashion book. It is packaged in a red box that reads, “Let’s Eat!” and has a stylish Ferrell sporting some of her best-loved brands, including Christian Louboutin, Alice & Olivia, and The Vault By Sacha.

Due to her own experience with the dearth of female support in the male-dominated food sector, Ferrell also co-founded Women in Restaurants to empower women in the hospitality industry through resources, events, and education. Ferrell hopes to have her cooking show in the future.
