This ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ Castmate Reportedly Just Lost Her Peach This Week (Tea + Receipts)

Are Real Housewives of Atlanta producers snatching peaches away left and right?

Earlier this summer, we told you that the contracts for Kenya Moore, Sheree Whitfield and Kim Zolciak-Biermann were not renewed after Season 10.

Newbie Eva Marcille got promoted from “Friend of the Show” status for Season 11 as the RHOA production team set out to find two new faces.  

After a monthly search, producers found their replacements: Shamari DeVoe, (wife of R&B singer Ronnie DeVoe and former singer of girl group Blaque), and Tanya Sam (a  RN and director of a company building agency).

Early reports said she was going to be “hilarious” new addition to the cast; as insiders predicted that could become a “fan favorite” for the new season. 

Tanya was even spotted filming with “The Talls” of RHOA - Nene Leakes, Cynthia Bailey, and friend of the show Marlo Hampton.

As BRAVO gets ready for the November 4th return of their hit reality show, MTO News is reporting that Tanya Sam has been demoted. Yup—she is no longer a peach holder on the show. 

It seems that the upcoming season is going to be a total snore or something? According to folks both in production and at Bravo, it is being deemed a "disaster". So, they are bending over backwards to make things more interesting.

MTO insists that Tanya was demoted last week. It seems she had already been hired as a "housewife" and given a peach, but minds were changed.

Need proof? Bravo posted promo images two weeks ago, with Tanya in the middle of the ladies.

And…here is a cast snap that was since shared. Notice Tanya is not there anymore. Bye, sweetie!

This was meant to serve as a warning to all the other cast members…to create drama in their storylines or else!

In an emergency meeting held last week, producers allegedly warned the entire cast that they have to mix it up and draw in viewers, no matter what it takes. And if they don’t? They will get their peach grabbed back LIKE TANYA SAM.


Oh and the trailer for the upcoming season is being bashed by fans, who seem to find the proposed plotlines predictable, “stale” and “boring”. Do you agree with this assessment? Hm. 

(But this was pushed out a week later than expected, as because producers had to re-edit it, after making the last minute determination that Tanya would NOT be a main cast member after all).

Um, BRAVO is really not playing around, huh? It seems that they may have send Kenya Moore packing for a semi-related reason.

“They were all told they have to share everything on the show. They are under contract to share their whole story. Not bits and pieces,” an insider previously noted.

Should the current cast be clutching their pearls and dialing up the nonsense, then? Probably.
