The gossip blogs are ablaze with rumors that Sheree Whitfield is gone again from Bravo's "The Real Housewives of Atlanta."
She was booted after season four and came back part time season eight before re-gaining her peach seasons nine and 10.
LoveBScott broke the story. Michelle Brown of StraightFromtheA followed up with her own shady read.
Bravo doesn't normally announce cast changes until later in the summer. Shooting for a new season of the show typically begins in May or June.
Sheree's primary problem has been her inability to create juicy story lines for herself, which is why she was cut the first time around. She is now dating a man Tyrone Gilliams but he is in prison for several more years. The producers can only do so much with that. Plus, she isn't terribly close with anybody on the main cast. She and Porsha Williams were close for a time but then she became offended in last week's episode when she heard second-hand that Porsha told Shamea that nobody on the cast could be trusted.
Porsha, for what it's worth, posted a single word followed by a Peach emoji on Twitter after the story hit the streets:
Sheree has remained friends with Kim Zolciak but Kim hates NeNe Leakes and Kim herself is unlikely to get full-time status on the show again any time soon. (Sheree, by the way, hasn't particularly enjoyed my coverage of her over the years. She has me blocked on Twitter.)
Kenya Moore's status this year has been in question after her secret marriage and her new husband's resistance to show up on camera. But he finally did accede to production demands and Kenya's fiery appearance on the upcoming reunion shows may have helped her lock her peach in for season 11.
Cynthia Bailey, Kandi Burruss, Nene and Porsha are clear for season 11 as well.
Eva Marcille is in the best position to go full time after a promising season 10. She arrived from Los Angeles mid season and is about to get married to Atlanta attorney Michael Sterling.
"The Real Housewives of Atlanta" season 11 reunion shows airing April 8, April 15 and April 22, 8 p.m. Sundays, Bravo
