The Real Housewives of Atlanta newbie Shamari DeVoe is returning next season in a friend role, instead of a full-time housewife. According to recent reports, Shamari was fired after just one season as a full-time housewife. According to Radar Online, Shamari was fired. NeNe Leakes recently got a raise for a $2.85 million dollar salary next season and Kandi Burruss, Porsha Williams and Eva Marcille were confirmed to return next season to the RHOA as well. According to sources, Kenya Moore is still negotiating her return to the show.
According to Radar Online sources, “Shamari was shocked when she was told that she was fired, but unlike Kenya Moore she is allowed to be on another show and find work somewhere else if she wants.”
Shamari and Ronnie DeVoe confirmed Radar’s story that they owed the IRS $366,000 in back taxes as the show began airing. Ronnie had said on the Dominick Nati Radio Show, “There’s some truth to everything in life. We’ve all had some tax challenges at some point, or doctored up some documents to be able to get some type of tax return. S**t happens in life. That was one year that was a really good year and money was used to be able to take care of some other things. Every year after that has been amazing and paid for and up to date. We own up to our flaws ultimately. We are not a perfect couple. We are not perfect people.” Shamari added, “We are human.”
I’m looking forward to next season of the RHOA! I’m glad Shamari will still be around in a friend role. I wish them all the best. I hope that Kenya returns to spice things up, she twirls! I also hope that the rest of the cast can get along next season, after this season became so intense. We’ll have to stay tuned, loves!
