‘RHOA’: Is Sheree Whitfield Returning for Season 13?

Sheree Whitfield is one of the original cast members of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. The Bravo personality held a peach for the first four seasons of the series. She made a return in season 8 as a “friend of” the Housewives and was upgraded to a full-time star the following season. Whitfield’s housewife status only lasted for two additional seasons and left the cast before season 11.

Would Sheree Whitfield return to the Bravo show?

Whitfield made a guest appearance on Watch What Happens Live to dish on the RHOA Season 12 reunion. The fashion designer still has ties to the ladies and maintains contact with Cynthia Bailey, Kenya Moore, Kandi Burruss, and Kim Zolciak. If she would ever return to the show, she would fit right in as she knows all the peaches.

“I would never say never,” Whitfield said at the prospect of returning to RHOA. “We had a good time over there. When we’re having a good time it’s good… I’m in a different place right now and I would not say no.”

Whitfield seemingly left the door open to hear any offers Bravo might have for her about returning to the show. She would be the first housewife to return officially three times following their exits.

Sheree Whitfield shades Nene Leakes

If Whitfield were to return to RHOA and Nene Leakes continues on the show, they would most likely be at odds with each other. When the She by Sheree founder made an appearance on WWHL, she had some shade to throw Leakes’ way.

“I think Nene did really good tonight, her reads were amazing,” Whitfield said about Leakes’ performance during the first part of the RHOA reunion. “Whoever she paid for those, she owes them.”

Cohen said that Moore accused Leakes of paying someone to write her zingers to blast at the ladies.

“I don’t think it’s far-fetched,” Whitfield added. “She did great on her reads tonight, so again, glad she paid. I thought Kenya did great too on her read.”

Leakes seemingly reacted to Whitfield on Twitter to clear up her “reads.”

“Yes, my reads are written down and rehearsed,” Leakes tweeted. “Remember, I’m elderly, menopausal, and have no fu**in memory. In my younger days, I sat on [the] couch and read you bit***s from the top of my wig and have the most iconic reads to date.”

Is Cynthia Bailey leaving?

There are rumors that Bailey is about to leave an open spot in the RHOA cast and many have suggested returning Whitfield. Many believe that Bailey will not be asked to return to the show as she plans to marry her fiancé and move out to California. However, the former model denies that any contract negotiations have started for season 13.

“I have no plans to leave RHOA at this time,” she told The Shade Room. “Every year there are rumors saying that I am getting fired, or not returning. I’ve been a peach holder consistently for 10 years now. I love my cast and my Bravo family. I am looking forward to next season.”

Bailey denied that she was offered a friend role for the new season.

“That is completely false,” she added. “We just recently filmed the reunion, and have not started contract negotiations yet.”

The Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion continues next Sunday at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo.
