The gang’s all there! The cast of The Real Housewives of Atlanta are enjoying some fun in the sun in Ocho Rios, Jamaica this week.
In the group shot above pictured left to right are: Chris Morgan, Kim Fields, Sheree Whitfeld, Phaedra Parks, Bob Whitfield, Porsha Williams, Cynthia Bailey, Greg Leakes, Nene Leakes, Peter Thomas.
This one group shot has sparked a ton of questions and and a slew of fairytales. You’ve got questions? I’ve got answers…
More details + photos below…
As reported yesterday, Nene surprised cast members with her return during their trip to Jamaica and while many didn’t believe it when I wrote it, Leakes confirmed the news with a simple instagram post with the caption, ‘Hunni I’m home! #RHOA’.
It’s my guess that network execs demanded that Nene return to the show because of the lagging storylines. It’s not secret that Carlos King and Nene DO NOT GET ALONG, so it wasn’t his call for her to return and he was reportedly as surprised as anyone else when Nene showed up on set.
My sources revealed that only one other housewife knew about Nene’s return (I’m assuming Phaedra, since she’s involved with Bravo’s legal department) and Kenya is clearly feeling ‘some kinda way’ about Nene’s return.
Have no fear, Kenya is definitely in Jamaica, but she reportedly refused to pose in a group shot with Nene. She did, however post a short video of herself being carted back to her room on a luggage rack.

Earlier this year, Cynthia Bailey’s husband, Peter Thomas, chose to stay away from the RHOA cameras after producers decided to focus on his marital issues.
Word on the curb is that Bailey and her husband had been a bit estranged after video leaked of Peter getting a bit too close to a clubgoer (click HERE if you missed that).
Bailey stated in several interviews that the video itself is not grounds for divorce, but it seems the pair has been spending quite a bit of time apart. Cynthia has been forced to face the vicious group of ladies alone for the most part this season.
Meanwhile, the net is also buzzing about the unexpected appearance of Sheree’s ex-husband, Bob Whitfield in Jamaica. I’ve got ALLLLLL the tea on these two but I’m not going to pour it all at once.
For the record, Sheree and Bob are not back together as a couple.
It’s no secret that Sheree’s image is in the toilet and her kids have often suffered from her lack of judgment. She spoke about her plight during an appearance on HLN, where she said she just wanted to fade into obscurity and never return to television.
It’s not the kids’ fault that their mom is an idiot, but they have suffered a tremendous amount of torment over the fact that she’s become the laughing stock in Atlanta. Without any marketable skills, Sheree desperately needs this second chance.
Bob is playing along to help secure her spot and ATTEMPT to improve her image. Well… that, and he loves being on television. But I digress.
Stay tuned… this season is going to be quite entertaining!
