After the fourth season, Whitfield, however, left the show before returning in season eight as a friend to some of the housewives.
For seasons nine and ten, Whitfield was brought back as a main cast member, but after the end of the tenth season, she left the show. The latest season 12 of "Real Housewives of Atlanta" came to an end in May, and a reunion was filmed virtually.
Like Whitfield, Andy Cohen, the show's reunion host, was diagnosed with COVID-19, but he has long recovered and has returned to his hosting duties, which he does from home while quarantining with son Benjamin.
Despite their efforts to keep safe, some of the biggest stars in Hollywood have also fallen victim to the novel coronavirus.
On July 13th, basketball player Russell Westbrook took to Instagram, where he revealed that he had tested positive before his team's departure to Orlando.
A week before Russell announced his diagnosis, Keisha Lance Bottoms, the Mayor of Atlanta, revealed that she tested positive for COVID-19.
Kimberly Guilfoyle, the girlfriend of Donald Trump Jr., also tested positive for the virus. At the time, Guilfoyle was said to be asymptomatic. In this time of uncertainty, it is best to keep staying safe and protected as the world joins forces to combat COVID-19.
