There seems to be a cast shakeup in the works for the Real Housewives of Atlanta. Rumors have swirled that Kenya Moore and Sheree Whitfield have lost their peaches because of difficulties covering their relationships, but it looks like Marlo Hampton could be joining the cast full-time.
So why do fans think Hampton will be more than a friend next season? This past week she tweeted a selfie with the caption, “Finally got my peach,” and the message immediately got happy reactions.
According to Atlanta Black Star, there have also been rumors that Eva Marcille would be replacing Moore. Ever since the former Miss USA married Marc Daly last summer sans Bravo cameras, the reality star and the network have been at odds. And, it looks like Marcille’s wedding planning could be a big part of next season.
Whitfield is reportedly getting the boot because she has run out of time to create a good storyline for herself and incarcerated boyfriend, Tyrone Gilliams. And, the news has reportedly left her “very upset,” but she claims to be fine.
“Bravo can’t film inside or even outside the jail. This is causing a problem with her storyline,” an insider revealed back in April.
One star that will definitely be back for season eleven is NeNe Leakes, who over the past month has been supporting her husband Gregg as he battles serious health issues. He was in the hospital for 16 days during the month of May and doctors recently diagnosed him with cancer, which they have since removed.
This Father’s Day will probably be one of the most memorable ones we’ve ever had together! We are usually doing something all fancy but today we chose to just enjoy each other, have some company over and take tons of pics right here in the kitchen? no really, I love you more today than ever Gregg. Happy Father’s Day hunni❤️ @greggleakes
All of Leakes’ cast members have been there for love and support, and Hampton sent Gregg a hand-crafted Bible with a bonded leather cover, gilded edges, brass stampings, and a jewel-encrusted cross. Hampton also included a note that read, “Sending you a gift that I know I could never go wrong with. Hope you are feeling better.”
Leakes posted a pic of the King James Bible and wrote in the caption that her husband thought the gift was his “most beautiful gift to date.” She added that the picture didn’t do it justice.
In a recent heartfelt Instagram post, Leakes thanked all of her co-stars, including rival Kim Zolciak, for their thoughtfulness and prayers.
Filming for season eleven begins next week, and new episodes of RHOA will return to Bravo later this year.
