With rumors constantly swirling that fans' favorite Real Housewives of Atlanta stars are in talks to sign on for Season 10, Sheree Whitfield's feelings about Kim Zolciak's possible return to RHOA are super relatable. You guys, could this really be happening? Could Zolciak actually be returning to bring more drama to the RHOA cast? If so, it appears that Whitfield, like many of us, is totally here for it. (Bustle reached out to Bravo for comment when there were first reports about Zolciak's return, but did not receive an immediate response.)
In a recent interview with Us Weekly, Whitfield spilled her feelings about the possible reunion, revealing that she also hopes that the rumors are true. She gushed,
“I think that would be awesome. If Kim came back full-time, that would be amazing! I think what we all add as the OG women is that we are more authentic. We did have some loyalty to one another even when we were fighting.”
It certainly sounds like Whitfield is more than ready to serve-up some reality realness, if you ask me. I also have my fingers crossed that there is some truth to the rumor that series vet Nene Leakes is also considering a return to the show. I think fans would agree that having the trifecta of Leakes, Zolciak, and Whitfield, the three main cast members from the show's inaugural season, would be the perfect way to breathe new life into the peach state franchise.
As completely expected, the return rumors have also come with their fair share of behind-the-scenes drama. While there's been chatter that Leakes will only reportedly sign on if she is paid more than Zolciak, Leakes seemingly shot down that notion in a video interview with TMZ.
Should the reunion magic actually happen, Whitfield says she'd be totally on-board for Leakes' return as well. She explained to Us Weekly,
“I think that would be good, too. I think bringing the OGs back is a great idea. I mean, it’s a milestone. It would be the 10th season. So it would be a great way to celebrate!”
Both Zolciak and Leakes have been absent from the show for quite some time. Leakes left the series in 2015 after seven seasons, while Zolciak exited in 2013 to appear in her own spin-off show, Don't Be Tardy.
However, Zolciak did make a brief appearance in an episode of the recently wrapped Season 9 of RHOA and was there just long enough to trade a few nasty barbs with Kenya Moore. The entertaining moment proved that the mother of six is more than prepared to bring some consistent drama to the RHOA set.
I mean seriously, all of this is way too exciting for me. Having all of the vets back on the scene for Season 10 would be a whole new reason to tune in. But I suppose beggars can't be choosers, so I'll just have to settle with the news of Zolciak's possible return. However, I'll still be praying for more word on Leakes, of course.
