The Real Housewives of Atlanta season 7 finished airing in June and the ladies are back to filming a new season already! This time around with major cast changes and some original faces reuniting. 

Sheree Whitfield, an original cast member of the Bravo reality series, has been spotted filming the new season of RHOA alongside current cast members, but it’s not clear if she’ll return in a full series-regular capacity, a source tells All About the Tea.

Several of the ladies were spotted at Cynthia Bailey’s Eyewear Launch Party on Friday night and photos and video surfaced of Sheree Whitfield, filming with the cast.

As All About the Tea EXCLUSIVELY reported earlier this week, multiple issues are causing stalled progress, regarding Bravo nailing down solid casting decisions.

A source explains that negotiations are ongoing with Sheree Whitfield, but Bravo wants her to begin filming without a contract in place, in a rundown similar to how Claudia Jordan busted onto the Atlanta scene. 

Our source dished that there is also some discord within the cast, and certain women are refusing to film with each other, causing more problems for production. 

NeNe Leakes is out — she announced she won’t be returning for season 8 of the reality series. Kenya MooreCynthia Bailey, Kandi Burrus, Porsha Williams, and Phaedra Parks, all attended Cynthia’s launch party. Cynthia’s sister, Malorie Massie was also in attendance, sparking rumors that Malorie may be joining the cast. 

Some hot tea to spill — according to a source, Marlo was in rare form and got into a spirited argument with Phaedra Parks at the event. As well as Sheree Whitfield and Kenya Moore.

A very pregnant Kandi Burruss posted a pic of selfie cookies gifted to her by Cynthia at the event.

Also in attendance is fan favorite “friend of housewife,” Marlo Hampton! Miss label whore was spotted filming with the cast. During season 6, Marlo and NeNe exchanged heated words that almost came to blows and NeNe had production show Marlo the door. But now that NeNe has exited stage left, producers have brought Marlo back in the mix. It’s not clear if she’ll be returning as a full-time housewife or a ‘friend of.’

Below, watch a video of Marlo filming with the cast at the event.  

The franchise is no stranger to cast shakeups — Atlanta added Claudia Jordan and Demetria Mckinney for the seventh season, but they’re not expected to return for the upcoming eighth season. Stay tuned for more developments of the ATL.
