As the coronavirus pandemic continues, more and more Bravolebrities are coming out with their own experiences contracting the virus.
Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Jennifer Aydin revealed she had the illness, along with her father and daughter. More recently, Real Housewives of Atlanta alum, Sheree Whitfield contracted it as well. Now another RHOA former star has also divulged their diagnosis.
Minus Eva Marcille,
who got fired “quit’ the show, Real Housewives of Atlanta will most likely return with most of the same cast members who were on last season. Yes, we know that NeNe Leakes has been very publicly dragging out her contract negotiations, but she’s probably going to come back, because, well, as Sheree Whitfield said, she needs this check.
Porsha Williams, Kandi Burruss, and Kenya Moore all got their offer letters. Cynthia Bailey most likely did as well even though she’s only in Atlanta when she films and she has the most boring personal storyline every single season. Rumor has it, there are two women joining the cast for the upcoming season.
It’s hard to escape hearing about coronavirus. No one is immune to the virus, and that includes our favorite Bravolebrities. We have already told you about Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Jennifer Aydin testing positive. Real Housewives of New York’s Ramona Singer also tested positive for the antibodies. Not to mention our Father of all things Bravo, Andy Cohen, who got COVID back in March. The whole thing is scary and hits home for so many of us. While some housewives aren’t really taking the whole matter seriously, so many are being affected.
Case in point, one more Real Housewives alum has tested positive too.
Every cast needs a good overhaul every now and then. In my humble opinion, unless we have a golden cast full of storylines, these shake-ups should be on the semi-regular. But I’ve said it before and I will say it again, Real Housewives of Atlanta is my favorite franchise. Season after season, they deliver. Even when their storylines are meh, the cast is strong enough to entertain their audience.
But as much as I love my RHOA, I could always do without Miss Nene Leakes. I can’t even hide it, guys. I’m sorry if you don’t agree with me but I must speak my truth! Despite being an OG and central cast member, NeNe brings nothing to the table. She hasn’t since her glory days of Kim Zolciak and Sheree Whitfield feuds. On top of that, she can’t stand to see any of her castmates succeed. For someone always talking about her own success, you would think she would be happy that there is enough to go around. Finally, she regularly refuses to film and storms off when things don’t go her way. See this past season’s reunion.
NeNe Leakes is having quite the season on Real Housewives of Atlanta. Despite bringing little to that table (in my humble opinion), she stays in the news. And maybe that’s her end game. Doing the bare minimum on the show and then staying in the lime light on her own terms.
So far this season, we haven’t seen much of her. But we’ve seen her all over her Instagram and YouTube channel, ripping her cast mates to shreds. NeNe has accused Kandi Burruss of never being number one at anything in her life. She’s called Eva Marcille boring. She even reignited an old beef with Sheree Whitfield. NeNe couldn’t even finish filming the reunion when ex-accomplice Yovanna Momplaisir showed up to tell her side of the Snake Gate story. And let’s face it, storming off made NeNe look guilty as hell for starting the whole thing, just like Yovanna was saying.
Pretty much no one leaves a successful reality show. Sure, it happens, but it’s just not the case with anyone who’s a Real Housewife. As per usual, NeNe Leakes is whining about how difficult it is for her to be on Real Housewives of Atlanta, issuing empty threats about how she might consider leaving. Girl, we all know that this show is the backbone for any side project that you may have going on. Let’s be honest, NeNe needs this show just as much as she needs it herself.
Despite her temper tantrums and reunion walk-outs, NeNe is not quitting this show. There’s just no way. No matter how unfair she feels she’s being treated, NeNe isn’t leaving. She did that once when she thought she was going to become a big Hollywood actress and we all know how that worked out. Or at least that is how her frenemy Sheree Whitfield feels.
As we are all aware, we are living in some tough times these days. At least, we have some entertaining TV shows to watch while we are social distancing and staying safe in our homes.
As a result of the coronavirus outbreak, Watch What Happens Live has been filming new episodes via video chat. Andy Cohen hosts from the safety of his New York City apartment. And different guests video chat in from wherever they are. Although it’s great to see the stars glammed up with pounds of hair extensions and self-tanner, this filming from home thing definitely has some advantages. For instance, there are no travel schedules to consider. This means that it is possible to have premium guests every single night.
Well, Sheree Whitfield wasn’t a cast member on Real Housewives of Atlanta last season, but that didn’t stop her from getting involved in some drama. After all, Sheree is the “bone collector.” Sheree exited the show after Season 10. Apparently having her incarcerated boyfriend, Tyrone Gilliams, woo her from prison wasn’t a blockbuster storyline.
Sheree had some strong feelings about a YouTube interview that RHOA star NeNe Leakes did with Jennifer Williams. Jennifer is a cast member on Basketball Wives.
