Sheree Whitfield: Fired from The Real Housewives of Atlanta!

by at .

Major change is underway on The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

First, as previously reported, Kenya Moore is pregnant with her first child.

The 47-year old made this stunning announcement on Sunday night at the outset of the show's reunion special.

Sheree Whitfield Looks Odd

But while Moore is set to welcome a new life into the world, one of her long-time castmates must now prepare to bid farewell to her former life.

That's right: Sheree Whitfield has been fired from the franchise.

According to Us Weekly insiders, the Bravo personality has not been invited back for Season 11 of this beloved reality TV program.

And the the tabloid makes it very clear that Sheree most definitely wanted that invitation to be extended.

She's "very upset," the source says of Sheree, especially because her termination is reportedly linked to boyfriend Tyrone Gilliams.

As those who watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta online, or who follow the lives of these ladies closely know well, Gilliams is currently behind bars.

He's serving 10 years in prison for stealing $5 million in wire fraud schemes.

Why might this situation have played a role in the  network’s decision not to bring Whitfield back?

“Bravo can’t film inside or even outside the jail. This is causing a problem with her storyline,” the source explains.

It's worth noting, of course, that Teresa Giudice got a raise to return to The Real Housewives of New Jersey,even though her husband is in jail right now...and she recently got out of the clink!

Bravo can expect to receive some questions over this, possibly race-related double standard in the days ahead.

Why does a white woman almost get rewarded for a jail stint and a black woman gets punished?

This is not the first time that Sheree has exited the series, of course.

After starring on The Real Housewives of Atlanta for the first four seasons, the departed the program in 2012.

She then jumped back on board in a friend/supporting role for season 8 in 2015 -- and returned as a full-time Housewife the following year for seasons 9 and 10.

Talk about a roller coaster of a journey, huh?!?

It may perhaps serve as some solace to Whitfield that Kim Zolciak won't play a role on Season 11, either.

Kim has been Sheree's closest friend for the duration of her time in Atlanta.

But with these two not part of the cast going forward, we need to now ask:

Will you even tune in for Season 11?!?
