Real Housewives of Atlanta Storyline for Shamea Morton's

Morton joined the Real Housewives of Atlanta cast in Season 8 and is still billed as a friend of the housewives. She has been a friend of the housewives since Season 6 bot only got upped at the 8th season.

Shamea is very close to full-time housewife Porsha Williams and considers her as her best friend, with the two backing each other up whenever they get into fights.

Porsha Williams defended Shamea when Kenya Moore lied about the latter. Williams even went on to say that Shamea played a huge role as a matchmaker to her relationship with Simon Guobadia.

She’s friends with a lot of the women on the show, but her closest friends are Porsha Williams and Kandi Burruss. She has had conflicts with Phaedra Parks, Eva Marcille, Kenya Moore, and Marlo Hampton, despite her good relationship with Williams and Burruss.

She claims she’s been given a peach, but owing to family duties, she declines a full-time position. Despite the fact that she is merely a fan of the show, she has appeared in two reunion specials. The first was her Season 9 reunion, which she missed owing to her feud with Parks. Parks was accused of flirting with her ex-husband by Morton. She’ll also be a regular on the RHOA After Show and will appear on the season 13 reunion special.
There have been offers for Morton to join the show full-time, according to her. Burruss and Williams, she claims, can attest to the network execs offering her a peach.

While Morton acknowledges she’d like to be promoted to full-time, she claims she hasn’t yet since her spouse is wary of appearing on reality television.

Despite this, Morton says she enjoys her work on the show because it allows her to have the best of both worlds. She also says she isn’t rushing into the part because she has a secure life and work, and stardom isn’t a priority for her.
