The Real Housewives of Atlanta may have lost a ‘star’ player in Nene Leakes, but it appears they’ve picked up two drama queens in return: Sheree Whitfield & Marlo Hampton!
The popular reality show has been taping around town for months now and this past weekend, the first ‘full cast’ event was held during Cynthia Bailey’s eyewear launch party.
