While Porsha Williams and Cynthia Bailey are out for Season 14, track star Sanya Richards-Ross is in. The gold medalist is the latest Georgia peach to join the cast.

According to LoveBScott, if all goes well, producers will crown her as a full-time cast member — but they have to see how she resonates with the Bravo audience first.

The 36-year-old decorated athlete became a household name when she won three consecutive gold medal titles in the 4 × 400 meters relay at the 2004, 2008, and 2012 Olympics.

After suffering an injury, Sanya was forced to retire from the sport in 2016. She later joined NBC as a track and field analyst.

Shereé was an original RHOA member, who held a peach until Season 4. After taking a short break, she returned as a friend in Season 8 before coming back full-time the following year. She officially ditched the cast after an explosive Season 10.

Cynthia reportedly wasn't asked back. As for Porsha, she's moving on up with her own spin-off.

"I'm told Porsha is NOT returning," reporter Anthony Dominic wrote, adding that RHOA stars Kandi Burruss and Kenya Moore aren't going anywhere.

Shereé has teased fans for years about a possible comeback, most recently while sitting down with Bravo daddy himself, Andy Cohen.

When asked if she would ever consider returning in an episode of Watch What Happens Live last year, Shereé responded, "I would never say never," continuing, "We had good times over there. When we have a good time, it's good."

Admitting that "sometimes it goes low," Shereé really got RHOA fans excited when she said, "I would never say no."
