7 Former Real Housewives Of Atlanta: Where Are They Now?
Bravo’s reality series The Real Housewives of Atlanta is only one branch of their ever-popular Real Housewives franchise, but it’s definitely one of the most successful. RHOA was the second show in the Real Housewives franchise to be developed back in 2008, not long before The Real Housewives of New York City. Season 9 is currently on air and features only a few ladies who’ve been around since the beginning. Similar to most of the other Real Housewives shows, RHOA has a lot of former Housewives who either disappeared from reality television all together, or moved onto new opporutnies. Here’s a list of 7 former Real Housewives of Atlanta — find out what they are up to now!
7. Kim Fields
This Housewife was hired on to replace Sheree Whitfield in season 8, but she only lasted one season and Whitfield managed to snag her coveted spot back for season 9. Kim Fields was a good addition to the cast, but she clashed with fellow Housewife, Kenya Moore. Fields is well known as an actress for her roles on NBC sitcom The Facts of Life as Dorothy and Regina on the Fox sitcom, Living Single. Not even a year after announcing she was joining the cast of RHOA, it was announced that Fields wouldn’t be returning. “It was for the experience. It was to be able to do a genre that I’d been asked to do before and finding a way to do it that made sense for my team and for the family. Overall it was a really great experience,” said Fields when asked about her departure. Instead of continuing on with Bravo, she joined the cast of Dancing with the Stars for season 22 and was partnered with dancing pro, Sasha Farber. Fields and Farber landed in eighth place after being cut in a double elimination.
6. Sheree Whitfield
Even though Whitfield is currently apart of the cast once again, she took a three season hiatus from 2012 until 2015 when she returned as a “friend” in season 8. The former Real Housewives of Atlanta was supposed to return as a main cast member in season 8, but producers chose Kim Fields over her, which is why she was demoted. During her three year hiatus, she was awarded $75,000 from her ex-husband Bob Whitfield for missed child support payments. In 2013 she appeared on Iyanla: Fix My Life which showcased the failure of her clothing line She by Sheree and the lack of completion of her McMansion, Cheateau Sheree. On a brighter note, she was able to launch her jewelry line called She by Sheree in 2015, but then was busy settling a tax lien that was filed against her in 2013 totalling over $150,000. The infamous “Who Gonna Check Me Boo?” reality star is back and currently one of the main cast members of RHOA for season 9 which is on air right now.
