4 Women We Think Should Replace Sheree on 'Real Housewives'

It's apparent that to be a cast member of the Real Housewives series you don't actually have to be a "housewife." As previously reported, Sheree Whitfield will not return for the 5th season, so we have to wonder: who will Bravo find to replace her character on the show?

Atlanta is the home of many successful artists, entrepreneurs and entertainers and is known for harboring those that are considered to be "new money." With that said, finding a replacement shouldn't be too hard. Here are four candidates Vixen thinks would make a perfect fit for the cast...
Keisha Knight Pulliam
Keisha is a veteran in the Hollywood scene. We all know her as Rudy from The Cosby Show, but in recent years, she's appeared in Beauty Shop, Tyler Perry's House of Payne and Madea Goes to Jail. Last year she was nominated for a NAACP Award for best supporting actress on House of Payne, and recently, she was spotted hosting a charity event in Atlant--which helped to raise money for AIDS treatment and food for children in African countries--with Ne-Yo's main squeeze, Monyetta Shaw.

Although she stays clear of any negative press, we would love to get a glimps of her personal life, i.e., who she's dating and what moves she's making in the acting world. She recently made a cameo on an episode of RHOA as she was seen chatting it up with NeNe, so the transition would be smooth.
Monyetta Shaw
We know her as the mother of two and the girlfriend of R&B heavyweight Ne-Yo. In addition to being Ne-Yo's main squeeze, Monyetta has had cameo's in Soul Men and Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins. She also co-owns a boutique in Atlanta called Emerlyn & Ester. Recent rumors circulated that Monyetta was to be considered for the RHOA cast but nothing had been confirmed by Bravo. Who wouldn't want to see Monyetta and Ne-Yo and their growing babe interact on a more personal level?
Marlo Hampton
Natrually, we expect Bravo to transition Marlo's occasional appearances to a more constant role on the show. She already has beef with several cast members, and we all know the drama surrounding her character makes for good reality TV...and we want to know more! How does she get the money to fund her lavish lifestyle and will her friendship with Nene Leakes last?
Toya Wright
Toya is no stranger to reality TV. She co-starred in Tiny and Toya with T.I.'s wife Tameka "Tiny" Cottle, and after that stint ended, she starred in her own reality show spin-off Toya: A Family Affair, both of which aired on BET. Determined to make a name for herself, she became a New York Times bestselling author and is the face of Ampro hair products, a venture she shares with her husband music producer Mickey “Memphitz” Wright. Toya is said to be friends with current cast members Kandi Burruss and Phaedra Parks, and it was recently reported that Bravo was considering her to be a candidate for the show. Her calm and collected disposition could be just what the RHOA cast needs to balance out all the drama.

Kelly Rowland Says Her Highly-Anticipated Project Is "Definitely Coming"

Six years ago, Kelly Rowland released her fourth studio album titled Talk a Good Game. The project boasted hit singles like "Kisses Down Low" and the transparent "Dirty Laundry." Now, the Houston native is preparing to release a project that'll surely satisfy fans' patient earbuds.

In an interview with Billboard, Rowland shared her hopes for putting out a new body of work and the pressure that she's encountered since she's been in the studio. "This is by far the longest, most pressure-filled process ever, only because I know what it's supposed to be and I have been so hard on myself. I know it," she said. "And it's the first time I've said it out loud. I've been extremely hard on myself. But it's definitely coming, and I'm more so excited about this project than anything else."

The news follows the recent release of Rowland's "Kelly" track, which was met with critical acclaim in November 2018. In addition to preparing the release of new music, the "Motivation" singer discussed fans' wish for a Destiny's Child reunion. The rumors have been fueled by social media photographs of Rowland with either Beyonce or Michelle or all three, especially during Beyonce's past Coachella performance. But Rowland assures readers that it's not what they think.

"It's so funny. I guess every time people see us together, they just see music but I see sisterhood, and that's what we are and that's what me, her, Michelle [Williams] and Solange and I are. People see us all together, they immediately think music. I'm like, no. Just family." As Rowland previously mentioned Solange, she hopes to one day work with her again.

"I'm a huge fan," she said. "I love her writing and how detailed and particular she is. I always wanted to figure out how the heck she has so many different layers of harmonies when she is constructing these vocals, and it's so complex but simple. It's genius. It's the genius in her genius mind that she has in there." One of the last times the pair collaborated was on Rowland's "Simply Deep" track off her debut solo album of the same name. Solange also penned a few songs off the same project. Fast forward to 2016, and Rowland's vocals were featured on Solange's iconic A Seat at the Table.

Teyana Taylor To Pay Homage To Ballroom Culture In "WTP" Video

Teyana Taylor aims to keep her hot streak of innovative videos coming thanks to this recent announcement. Taking to Instagram on Wednesday (Jan. 9), the "Gonna Love Me" singer will show adoration to ballroom culture in the visual for "WTP."

Directed by Gregory "Beef" Jones, The Aunties Inc., and Taylor herself, the Harlemite takes viewers on her journey to the expression-filled space where she hopes to rack up 10s across the board from a group of judges. The premise of the video also seems to follow a mockumentary format airing on a fictional network named FEMTV. Alongside Taylor, other men and women get ready to display their talents and confidence on the ballroom floor.

"WTP" is featured on the mother-of-one's sophomore album, K.T.S.E., which was released in June 2018. While the rollout's controversy didn't entirely muddle the excitement behind the project's debut, Taylor said she was sold on the idea that her album would be treated as the biggest out of G.O.O.D. Music's string of releases last year.

"I didn't know ahead of time that there wouldn't be any singles or visuals. But I knew that it was going to be the five-album thing," she said during a HOT 97 interview. "[Kanye] wanted [my album] to be last, he wanted mine to be the biggest. That's the way they sauced it up. I was sold."

The video will debut on Jan. 19. Check out the teaser below.

Trina Braxton’s Ex-Husband, Gabe Solis, Dies After Battle With Cancer

Gabe Solis, the ex-husband of Trina Braxton, lost his battle with cancer, Thursday (Dec. 20),  TMZ reports. He was 43.

Solis passed away at his home in Texas, surrounded by friends and family, according to the outlet. No official details have been released about his passing.

Solis had reportedly been keeping his cancer battle private. His death came as a shock to his loved ones. On Friday (Dec. 21), Braxton seemingly mourned the loss of her ex-husband with a cryptic Instagram meme reading, “I need a hug..E bottle of wine.”

The former couple tied the knot in 2003, and appeared together on previous seasons of WEtv’s Braxton Family Values. Despite finalizing their divorce in 2015, Braxton and Solis confronted lingering issues from their marriage during an episode of Iyanla: Fix My Life, earlier in the year.

Braxton has since moved on to a new relationship, but remained friends with Solis.
