Ronnie Devoe from New Edition's wife Shamari Devoe signed on to be the newest member o the Atlanta Housewives. But MTO News learned that the storyline that producers are pitching her - may end up DESTROYING HER MARRIAGE.
MTO News spoke with a member of the Atlanta Housewife production team and have been told that they are trying to weave a "cheating" angle into Shamari's storyline. The insider told MTO News, "Her storyline isn't set yet, but it will probably have to do with her thinking [Ronnie] is cheating. He's on a nationwide concert and gone for more than half of the year."
When we asked specifically if the person on production believed that Ronnie is ACTUALLY cheating, we were told, "Who knows."
But it doesn't matter. You see, Shamari signed a contract that allows Bravo to create WHATEVER storyline they want - whether it be real or false. And according to an IRONCLAD contract, Shamari can't do anything about it.
Good luck to her and Ronnie. . .
