The “Real Housewives of Atlanta” are starting out season 8 with a bang….sans NeNe Leakes. Find out what’s already gone down during filming inside…

Well isn’t this interesting? The pic above was snapped outside of Cynthia Bailey’s eyewear launch this weekend in Atlanta. You may notice a couple of familiar faces: Sheree Whitfield and Marlo Hampton.

According to reports, Sheree has signed a new contract with Bravo to return with a peach. We can see all the Chateau Sheree and She by Sheree shade now….and it will be epic.

As for why NeNe’s former friend Marlo is in the pic above, we hear she will be returning on a “friend of the Housewives” basis, much like the position she was in previously.

Marlo and Kenya Moore were spotted chatting up Cynthia’s husband Peter Thomas inside. But it wasn’t all rosy at the event. ET reports that Porsha Williams and Marlo got into a fight with Peter! And that’s not all…Sheree and Kenya allegedly got into a bit of a catfight at the party as well. And we an only imagine what type of shady talk was spewed.

Kandi and Todd were there minding their pregnant business. Gotta love it.
