There is a cast shakeup coming for Season 14 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta and it’s been confirmed by the Bravo honcho Andy Cohen himself. For weeks, rumors have surfaced that several old faces would be making a return and some long-standing cast members are potentially on the outs.
Sheree Whitfield is reportedly in talks to make a comeback for the third time. Witfield is said to be of the highest interest to producers considering her prison bae Tyrone Gilliam was recently released and the two are moving full speed ahead with their relationship.
Marlo Hampton is vying for a peach after being a friend to the show since season 4. But there are some who may not return.
Cynthia Bailey has been open about potentially being given the boot. She’s been a full-time cast member since season 3, showing two marriages and one divorce. The former supermodel admits she prefers the option to return but is fine with whatever the decision has been. She reportedly has yet to be asked back.
Amid her controversial engagement to her former co-star Falynn Pina’s ex-husband Simon Guobadia, Porsha Williams is also reportedly not eager to return. Williams has been on the show since season 5. She allegedly does not want the drama surrounding her engagement to be a central focus. But she’s not bidding adieu to Bravo as she has her own eight-episode spinoff in the works.
Season 13 newbies Drew Sidora and LaToya Ali are also allegedly not returning. Cohen spoke of the cast shakeup in a recent chat with Entertainment Tonight, saying, "You know what? We are noodling with the configuration of Atlanta as we speak.”
He also hints that the rumors Whitfield is returning are true, saying, "I always love Sheree," he said with a smile.
RHOA is expected return later this year on Bravo.
