“Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Sheree Whitfield was noticeably absent from the Bravo upfronts event Wednesday (April 4), and as a result, rumors immediately started swirling that the She by Sheree designer wouldn’t be returning to the series.
A tweet the same day from costar NeNe Leakes would suggest that Sheree did, in fact, get her walking papers from the show.
“The news I just got was music 2 my ears! That’s why u don’t bite the hand that feeds u,” NeNe writes.
One outlet reported that it was actually NeNe that was to blame for Sheree’s alleged firing, saying NeNe gave producers an ultimatum and threatened to quit the show if Sheree wasn’t let go.
NeNe seemed to address the rumors by taking to Twitter on Friday, posting, “Look I’m powerful but I ain’t that powerful.” She also retweeted a follower’s comment, which says, “lol I knew they were goin 2 find away 2 blame U.”
Neither Sheree nor Bravo have responded to the rumors yet, though Sheree did note via Twitter that she has been in the Caribbean for the past week with her children, which might also explain her absence from the Bravo event.
Do you think Sheree will be back on “The Real Housewives of Atlanta”? Will you watch if she’s not?
