Apparently ‘Check My Charges’ Marlo Hampton now fits the Real Housewives Of Atlanta brand just like Sheree “She By SheBroke” Whitfield does! How the mighty have fallen. Despite promises of revamping Atlanta Housewives, Bravo decided, instead, to turn back time by returning BOTH Marlo and Sheree for season 8 – and they’re already fighting up a storm but not with each other… (Yet).
The new season of RHOA finally – officially – kicked off filming because NeNe Leakes‘ abrupt departure put the show in a tailspin. Reports from sources close to production say that Sheree has finalized her Bravo contract and is returning as a full time Housewife!
We can always count on the ladies of Real Housewives Of Atlanta to keep it 100! And to prove it they celebrated their 100th episode by spilling-all to Andy Cohen. “The Atlanta women are funny! We’re honest and real, and we never bite our tongues,” describes Kim Zolciak of the pride that comes with RHOA.
All of the Housewives – past and present – feel the success of the show and also its magic was that it showcased affluent African-American women. I have to ask, other than Kandi Burruss: Who are these affluent Housewives again? Certainly they’re not referring to SheBySheBroke?! (“A fashion show with no fashions?! How dreadful!”). And then they dish on bad hair (NeNe Leakes is voted the worst), bad fashions (no declarative winner) and worst fight (again, no declarative winner).
I was hoping Sheree and Lisa Wu-Hartwell would be appearing but they didn’t! My favorite part was seeing the ladies’ audition tapes – first of all how freaking different does NeNe look? But how freaking the same is her ego – large and in charge of everything!
Claudiaconfirmed the firing on her Facebook page. She thanked the show for giving her an opportunity to move to Atlanta and appear on RHOA. The show is on vacation this week and Claudia’s last gig was reporting from the Essence Festival last week.
Over on the East Coast: Bravo reality stars Arzo Anwar (Blood, Sweat and Heels) and Dr. Tabasum Mir (The Singles Project) have their hand prints immortalized at Buca di Beppo restaurant in Times Square, NYC. RHONY star Ramona Singer was photographed at the Hamptons Magazine Cover Party held at Barn & Vine in Bridgehampton.
Sheree Whitfield‘s financial problems continue! Seriously, girl, have you never heard of a financial advisor???? In addition to owing money to seemingly everyone in Atlanta – from her attorneys to the State of Georgia to her ex-husband Bob Whitfield – She By SheBroke also owes the IRS a whopping $287,707.86!
In a recent interview with All Things Real Housewives, Bethenny dished on her co-stars and shared her thoughts on how Real Housewives of New York has changed since season 3. “I think it had changed in that it was contrived, in my opinion, because it had been on for so long that people who were new would know what to expect and think that’s how to manufacture drama,” she surmised.
Bethenny continued, “Coming back this season felt more like what it used to be like. Not contrived, it felt… it took a minute, I’ll be honest… but I feel like the tone was set to just be real and not be contrived and manufactured. You don’t need to do that, you can be interesting enough.”
She By SheBroke has re-branded herself as a “fitness coach,” – finally – but cannot recover from the heartbreak of Bob Whitfield‘s missing seven-figures, so she’s never moved on after their divorce. Instead Sheree hardened her exterior shell, along with her heart, and Patti dubs her a “crockpot woman,” because she’s so slow to warm up.
Nonetheless Sheree is relying on Patti to help her find that “instant connection.” The butterflies, the tingles, which Sheree says she’s never had. You mean Bob never gave her tingles?! No… “When I love, I love hard,” promises Sheree. And when she divorces, she divorces hard too… In fact, Sheree might as well come with a disclaimer: Court is my extracurricular activity! Paying bills… that’s your job!
Sadly, Sheree never even gets to the love stage, because she slams the door shut before anyone can peek inside.
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from this week. Enjoy!
