“I was chasing She By Sheree and calling her,” Andy said with a laugh. “Let me tell you something, it was not that easy. She plays hard to get!”
When asked why she opted to return to the reality TV staple this year, Sheree said, “I just felt like it was a good time,” recalling how her previous stint on the show was tough because she was going through a contentious divorce and custody battle.
Money is a “given,” the 46-year-old added, speaking of her impetus for a homecoming.

As for the cast, Sheree noted Kim Fields wasn’t really “meshing” with the group, but said she’s put her differences with “friend of the Housewives” Marlo Hampton behind her.
“So much time had passed, so we just started talking again,” the Chateau Sheree owner explained. “It was like water under the bridge.”
In this Sunday’s episode of RHoA, Sheree will join Kim, Porsha Williams, and Phaedra Parks at the Million Man March in Washington D.C.
Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 8 airs Sundays at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo.
