Season 10 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta wraps on Bravo and word is the network has fired Sheree Whitfield. New reports reveal why she's been axed from the show.
'RHOA' Gives Sheree The Boot
It looks like Sheree Whitfield will not have a peach for the 11th season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. While she sparked lots of drama on the tail end of season 10, her “bone collector” status isn’t the reason producers don’t want her back for another round.
It turns out that her romance with jailbird Tyrone Gilliam is the real reason she was let go. Apparently, it's not a storyline that is good enough for the reality series.
“Bravo can’t film inside or even outside the jail,” said an insider. “This is causing a problem with her storyline.”
Fans know this isn’t the first time Whitfield has been reportedly fired by Bravo from the reality show. Although she is an original cast member, she left the show after season 4. Then, she had returned as a part-time co-star in season 8 before she was given a peach again in seasons 9 and 10.
The Future Of 'RHOA'
It didn’t take long for some of her friends-turned-enemies to respond to her alleged firing. Porsha Williams kept it simple when she wrote "Karma" on Twitter to share her thoughts on Whitfield’s possible firing.
NeNe Leakes, who got major issues with Sheree Whitfield after Leakes had called Gilliam a con artist on the show, replied to Williams’ comment. She hinted that Whitfield’s partner-in-crime Kim Zolciak wouldn’t be back for season 11 either.
"Smokey and the bandit tried it," wrote Leakes. "Bye girls."
As for the other co-stars, Kenya Moore was reportedly at risk of being fired until she announced her pregnancy at the reunion. Her drama during the reunion, as well as her husband Marc Daly’s change of heart when it comes to filming, were also reasons she’ll have a peach again.
Newcomer Eva Marcille hasn’t been inked as a full-time cast member yet. Word is she’ll appear as a friend of the show next season.
The regulars such as Leakes, Williams, Kandi Burruss, and Cynthia Bailey are slated to return for a new season.
The potential housewives normally receive their contracts, if renewed, roughly two weeks after they tape the reunion. The contracts include the number of seasons the housewife will sign on to, including their salary. The cast does not go into negotiations for a new contract after each season.
Part two of The Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion is set to air on Bravo Sunday at 8 p.m. Eastern Time.
