The Real Housewives of Atlanta is facing a seismic shift going into their next season, which is filming now. We have two notable exists from the show. One being long time fan favorite, Porsha Williams, who ended up being a not-so-fan favorite after she alleged stole another woman’s husband. But that move paid off with not only a giant ring for Porsha, but a spin off too. So now she won’t have to answer to her RHOA castmates. Another exit came from longtime housewife, Cynthia Bailey. Look, she’s been boring on the show for years. And now that she’s married, I didn’t see much of a storyline there either.
Now to the new editions. Well, not exactly new but new and improved might be the better term to use. Sheree Whitfield is back on the show and already earning her place with a peach, thanks to drama with her paroled boyfriend. It looks like despite her best efforts, we won’t be seeing him with Sheree. Or on screen at all, courtesy of the cease and desist he sent to Bravo. The couple is reportedly not speaking over the incident so Sheree might have just wasted a few years waiting for him to get out of jail. And that brings us to Marlo Hampton, a staple of the show for many years, but only as a “friend of”.
But where Sheree and Marlo go, drama is bound to be found. This season it’s like going to be in the form of cast member Kenya Moore. Kenya has always had a tumultuous past with the two (ok and everyone else). Last season, Kenya and Marlo seemed to set their issues aside for the sake of exposing Porsha in #bologate. It doesn’t look like that lasted though. On a recent Instagram post by realhousewivesofatlthetotaltea, they found out that Kenya and Marlo unfollowed each other on IG. Kenya and Sheree also did the same.
Despite the possible beef with Sheree, it looks like Kenya was initially happy she was coming back. Earlier this month, Kenya shared her thoughts on Sheree’s return, “It’s been really amazing having her there. We have great chemistry. We are just like ladies who lunch. We are so in tune with each other right now. So it’s been really fun.”
As for Kenya and Marlo, things might have taken a quicker turn for the worst. A few weeks ago, Marlo posted a cryptic message in her Instagram stories. It read, “I will unfriend, uncousin, unf–k, unco-worker, unfollow, unfamily a draining soul REAL quick.” Fans speculated that she was shading Kenya. Marlo had already previously discussed some of her hesitation with her newfound friendship with Kenya. At one point Marlo said, “Loyalty is really big when it comes to an Aquarius, and when Kenya didn’t invite me to her housewarming party and her birthday party because her and NeNe [Leakes] reunited, that crushed me. Because Kenya and I would be on the phone, she’ll be FaceTiming me outfits, I was out in L.A. at her house. So, it’s going to take time.”
Looks like time has run out on this friendship.
