As Porsha Williams and Kenya Moore are confirmed for Season 16, there’s still no word on whether Sheree Whitfield and Drew Sidora will return.

During a visit to Dr. Heavenly Kimes’ dental office, Drew Sidora briefly commented on the upcoming season. When asked by Dr. Heavenly Kimes if the show would be good this year, Drew Sidora replied,

“I really, really hope so. I really do, it has to be.”


Sheree Whitfield also posted a cryptic message on social media, leading fans to speculate about the upcoming season.

“SHE gets her way. #NoDiscountsGiven”

Kandi Burruss-Tucker and Marlo Hampton have both made statements about their departure from the series. Kandi Burruss previously announced she was leaving “Housewives” after 14 seasons on the 2024 Grammys’ red carpet, stating:

“I decided I’m not coming back this year … I’m going to take a break, I’m going to take a moment… I’m not coming back this year.”

Marlo Hampton explained in a separate interview,

“My contract with Real Housewives of Atlanta ended when season 15 wrapped. This break from RHOA is a fresh start, allowing me the space to participate in new creative entertainment projects focused on my future, and not reliving my past.”

While Sanya Richards-Ross has yet to make a formal statement, “Housewives” producer and reunion host Andy Cohen asked his guest, Mariah Smith, how she felt about Kandi Burruss, Sanya Richards-Ross, and Marlo Hampton leaving the show on his radio program (March 14). This marked the first time that anyone from the network had acknowledged Sanya Richards-Ross’ departure from the series.

There has been plenty of buzz on social media about former cast members possibly returning, like Phaedra Parks (currently of “Married to Medicine”) and Latoya Howard, as well as rumors about new faces joining the cast, such as entrepreneurs Ming Lee, Tiffany Rose, and Gucci Mane’s wife, Keyshia Ka’Oir.

Fans can expect to see Porsha Williams’ contentious divorce from Simon Guobadia and Kenya Moore’s hair spa on their screens. However, they’ll have to wait a bit longer to find out who will officially join the “season five queens.”
