Is Shereé Whitfield coming back to ‘RHOA’?

Earlier this, Whitfield made an appearance on Watch What Happens Live. It had been rumored that she was interested in returning to RHOA in the upcoming season 13. Andy Cohen asked the reality star if that’s something she would want to do, leaving the door open.

“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.”

In a separate interview, Whitfield said being on RHOA is a great platform and if she were to return, she would need to have a conversation with the network.

“I’m feeling good,” she told Hollywood Life. “I’m just living simple, focusing on the things that I love which is health and wellness right now and empower and inspire other women. [Bravo and I] would have to have some conversations. Like I said, when I’m with the girls, sometimes we have an amazing time and it’s an amazing platform, no doubt.”
