Shamari May Be Demoted From Housewife Status & Other ‘RHOA’ Season 12 Rumors
Things could be shaking up in Atlanta for a couple of our favorite Georgia peaches. ‘Real Housewives Of Atlanta’ season 11 just wrapped, with most of the housewives left in a standoff with reality TV veteran, NeNe Leakes.
In the ashes of their friendships, Bravo has reportedly already started looking at season 12 and deciding who stays, who goes, and whose roles need to change.
Rumor has it that Shamari DeVoe, the wife of New Edition’s Ronnie Devoe, could be demoted to “friend” status, according to LoveBScott.
That would put DeVoe on the same level as Marlo Hampton, who has been a frequent on the show for the past few seasons as NeNe Leakes friend.
The insider also said that newcomer, model Eva Marcille’s, position was up for debate, but they reportedly decided that the new wife and mama of two was worth keeping around the crew.
Kenya Moore, who left the show to focus on her husband and child, is allegedly working on a new contract with the series.
At the time of her departure, a source told People, “Everyone wanted to have Kenya back, but they wanted to have the old Kenya back — the one who isn’t afraid of the cameras,” an alleged production person told the outlet. “You can’t have secrets and be on reality TV. Especially when other Housewives are showing all of their lives — the good, bad, and the ugly. They need to see your life.”
But perhaps Kenya has finally taken enough time away and is ready to spill the tea again. Porsha, who left the show amid the “sex dungeon” scandal, reportedly hasn’t been ruled out as a cast member for season 2.
New mommy Porsha, Kandi, Cynthia, NeNe, and Tanya and Marlo are expected to come back to the show in the same roles as before.
