Real Housewives of Atlanta Producers Replace NeNe Leakes With Familiar Faces

Submitted by on August 9, 2015 – 9:05 amNo Comment

A few familiar faces will step into the shoes of the Real Housewives of Atlanta ‘Queen Bee’ NeNe Leakes. As we previously told you, NeNe announced she would not return for season 8 of the popular Bravo reality series back in June to pursue other endeavors.

In NeNe’s absence, producers have signed former cast member Sheree Whitfield and NeNe’s former friend Marlo Hampton to the show. According to TMZ:

…Sheree Whitfield has finalized her contract with Bravo to return to the show and was filming last night [Friday]. We’re told former cast member Marlo Hampton will make the occasional appearance on the show as well.

Sheree was an original member of the RHOA cast. Reportedly, she was fired from the cast after season 4 amid a dispute with the show’s producers over money. Marlo joined the show as a friend to the cast during season 4, and returned for season 6 during which she had a major falling out with NeNe.

It’ll be interesting to see how things will play out for RHOA post-NeNe. As we previously reported, another former cast member, Lisa Wu, said in an recent interview for my column “The SCOOP” that the show will “absolutely” lose viewers without NeNe.
