Will Mia Thornton return to RHOP Season 7?

Fans have wondered if Mia Thornton will return to The Real Housewives of Potomac Season 7. Mia had a dramatic first season as a newcomer in Season 6.

Bravo has not announced The Real Housewives of Potomac Season 7, so it is unclear who the potential cast would be.

Mia reportedly was not a fan of the nature of The Real Housewives of Potomac. She said in a tweet, “I should have watched seasons 4 and 5. I thought I was signing up for Housewives of Beverly Hills vibes. I prefer to keep it classy.”

After the season ended, rumors emerged that Mia did not want to attend the reunion. When questioned about that, Mia responded, “Because we (G &I) didn’t feel this platform was adding value to our lives. We don’t do ‘nasty’ drama.”

The Real Housewives of Potomac is currently on hiatus on Bravo.
