She’s back! According to a new report, The Real Housewives of Atlanta is bringing back a key member of the drama club as Shereé Whitfield is allegedly returning for season 8 of the hit Bravo series!

Radar Online claims the 45-year-old star will not only be back, but will also make an estimated $250,000 — which is double what she was initially offered from the network.


An insider says producers needed to “bring the drama” following NeNe Leakes’ departure from the show.

Real Housewives of Atlanta is the crown jewel in Bravo’s crown, and it has always been a ratings hit,” the insider explains.

With NeNe no longer the drama-queen star of the show, Shereé was ready to step in and take her place — but only for the right price!

“At the height of Shereé’s four seasons, she was making around $350,000,” the source reveals, adding, “Producers initially offered $100,000, and Shereé balked at the insulting offer. Finally, the contract was signed for $250,000, with an option to do another season at a higher salary.”

Well, we’re excited to see what has been happening with Shereé since she left the show — we’re sure season 8 will be filled with plenty of drama!
