Bravo hasn’t wasted any time filling the slots left open by Claudia Jordan‘s rumored recent departure.
It seems that Real Housewives of Atlanta producers are pulling yet another high-profile name from the ether for the show! There are going to be a few new faces next season on RHOA, and B Scott reports that none other than Kim Fields may be among the new crop of peaches! Her potential storyline might be pretty juicy, since it will supposedly center on her husband’s alleged sexuality (there are whispers that he may be bisexual).
Also up for a test is actress Drew Sidora, who played T-Boz in VH1’s TLC biopic. She’s currently living in domestic bliss with her new hubby as they prepare for their arrival of their first child.
And if there wasn’t enough off-season drama swirling about for Cynthia Bailey, season 8 might bring some contention in the form of Lena Chenair. She’s an Atlanta-area socialite dating RL from Next, and he might have some words for Peter Thomas since he’s still waiting on a financial return from an investment into one of his businesses.
None of these castings have been confirmed by the network as of yet, but they wouldn’t be bad options to round out the cast. NeNe Leakes, Kenya Moore, Cynthia Bailey and Porsha Williams are all supposedly to return, but there are still a few slots on the cast that need to be filled. There’s no word yet on whether Phaedra Parks will come back for season 8, which means that RHOA is potentially down two cast members.
