Cynthia Bailey is currently filming season 5 of Real Housewives of Atlanta. After a drama-filled season 4, producers have made a few tweaks. Sheree Whitfield won't be returning, and the cast will be getting at least one new housewife. In fact, they've been spotted filming with several new faces. For now, Cynthia is saying what she canÂ—with a few slip-ups.
Regarding Shere's exit, Cynthia told Ebony, "I never want anyone toÂ—I meanÂ—if it was her choice not to come back, then great, but I never want to see someone get fired." Cynthia may or may not have just admitted to Sheree's firing. After she left, many claimed it was not by choiceÂ—everyone except for Sheree!
As for the new additions, Cynthia is a bit more reserved. She explains, "I will say that we're presently shooting and there may or may not be a couple of new housewives in the mix." Keshia Knight Pulliam, Kenya Moore, and a few other Atlanta ladies have rumored to be joining the cast next season. Several photos of Kenya Moore with the cast have surfaced, leading fans to believe that she's the frontrunner for Sheree's coveted role of housewife.
Cynthia Bailey and the ladies will return for a fifth season some time at the end of this year or beginning of next year.
