Sheree Whitfield Marlo Hampton RHOA S8 2

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.

[sidebar: ‘Full cast’ meaning that everyone full and/or part time was included in the taping.]

Being that the event was public, there were tons of photos that hit the net, and to everyone’s surprise ex-‘housewife’ Sheree Whitfield and former background character Marlo Hampton were spotted filming with the ladies.

Nene’s departure is clearly good news for both Whitfield, who is still knee deep in tax liens and Hampton, who has been begging to return as well. But there’s also another RHOA ‘return’ that benefited from Leakes’ departure.
