Rumors Surrounding Sheree Whitfield Returning To "Real Housewives of Atlanta"
With the messiness at an all-time high on “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” rumors are swirling that producers are looking to bring back at least one old favorite as current cast members wait to find out if they’ll be asked back.

According to Atlanta blogger Funky Dineva, original cast member Sheree Whitfield might be returning for season 7 of the hit Bravo reality show. Sheree held a peach and coined reality TV catchphrases (“Who gon’ check me, Boo?”) for four seasons before her exit.

Fans haven’t seen much of her on TV lately; however, she did appear on “Watch What Happens Live” with Kim Zolciak recently.

She’ll be back on Bravo when Kandi Burruss’ wedding special airs in June. Reportedly, she received quite a bit of camera time on Kandi’s special day.

“By the end of Kandi’s wedding night, Sheree was filming full on scenes with Derek J and Lawrence,” Funky D reported.

Sheree hasn’t confirmed or denied the gossip, but the rumors have resulted in a lot of calls for Sheree’s return to the show.

One commenter suggested a tweaked “RHOA” roster including Sheree and Marlo Hampton with Porsha Williams and NeNe Leakes gone.

“We need @IamSheree back on #RHOA! I never understood y she was fired before? She was HILARIOUS!” wrote fan @TiarraNorcross.

Funky Dineva suggests Sheree’s departure had something to do with money, but since she’s been away from the series for two seasons, she’s reportedly ready to accept whatever compensation Bravo offers.

If Sheree were to return, she would be the first former “RHOA” co-star to come back as a full cast member. Sheree is one of four women who have left the show since its first season. Since their TV introduction, NeNe and Sheree’s friendship has suffered. Harsh words were exchanged at the end of season 4. However, NeNe has admitted that she misses the original co-stars.

“I never thought in a million years that I would say this, but I kind of miss the old girls a little bit,” NeNe told “Good Morning America” in December.

Though Sheree didn’t confirm the news, she did offer her fans some hope that the rumors are true.

“Its been an awesome day! Things r looking good…” she wrote.
