The Real Housewives Of Atlanta Begins Filming Season 8 — Cast Spotted Filming With Marlo Hampton And Shereè Whitfield!

The claws are out! The Real Housewives of Atlanta began filming their eight season on Friday, August 8 at the launch party of Cynthia Bailey's eyewear event. Kandi Burruss, Phaedra Parks, Kenya Moore and Porsha Williams were all at Cynthia's event, along some other familiar faces.

Sheree Whitefield and Marlo Hampton were also spotted at the event, which means we’ll be seeing more of them when Bravo hit series returns. Just last month, it was reported that Whitfield was negotiating with Bravo for her return after a four year hiatus.

Apparently, Porsha and Marlo got into an argument with Cynthia’s husband Peter Thomas at the party! Sheree and Keyna didn’t let them hot the entire spotlight, however – they also got into a huge fight, with one throwing water at the other, reports ET.

According to our friends All About The Tea, Marlo and Phaedra got into a heated argument at the event. The site also reports that negotiations are still ongoing with Sheree, as Bravo wants her to film without a contract in place, just like they did with Claudia Jordan last season. Jordan was initially hired as a 'friend of' the wives last season but then halfway through filming she was promoted as a main cast member due to her ongoing beef with NeNe Leakes and Porsha Williams.

As we reported, Cynthia Bailey, Kandi Burruss, Phaedra Parks, Kenya Moore and Porsha Williams are all returning. Despite being demoted last season, Williams is returning as a full-time housewife, just like Countess Luann did on #RHONY.

Some video clips surfaced on social media of the ladies filming the event with Sheree and Marlo thanks to our friends All About The Tea, check them out below!

NeNe Leakes, Claudia Jordan and Demetria McKinney are not returning for season eight. Back in June, Leakes announced her departure from the show that made her a star to focus on other career opportunities. Leakes will be hosting a primetime game show on ABC Network alongside Anthony Anderson and Betty White.

Despite reports claiming that Leakes may appear in a guest role, the self proclaimed rich bitch has made it clear that it won't happen - at lease not this season.

“I love Bravo – they’re my family – I may pop up and play with those girls and every now and then. I’m sure I’ll come back at some point, I just won’t come back in season 8,” said Leakes.

NeNe insists that leaving the show was purely to follow a great opportunity. “It’s not about the money,” she continued. “If it were about the money, I would have stayed.”

This isn’t necessarily goodbye to RHOA forever – just goodbye for now,” NeNe’s manager Steven Grossman told Perez Hilton.

There’s no word yet on if Facts of Life alum Kim Fields is officially joining RHOA, despite the rumors currently going around that she’ll be a part of the cast. Last month there were rumors claiming that Married to Medicine star Mariah Huq was in talks to replace Leakes due to their similar personalities.

Are you ready for Season 8 of RHOA?
