“The Real Housewives of Atlanta” is reportedly adding two new ladies to its all-star cast.
On Monday, Love B Scott reported that actress Drew Sidora, 35, and YouTube star LaToya Ali, 33, are joining the hit Bravo franchise for its 13th season.
The blog reports that the two ladies are set to get peaches, which implies that both will be full-time Housewives.
Reportedly, the reality TV show chose Sidora and Ali because they want to the program to start “trending younger.”
Last month, Ali, also known as LaToya Forever, announced that she and husband Adam Ali have called it quits after six years of marriage. The two share three children.
Per Love B Scott, Adam has reportedly told production that he does not want “certain things filmed.” The outlet says that if Ali is unable to document certain aspects of her life, she will be demoted to a “Friend.”
Ali is a close pal to current Housewife Kandi Burruss, and wished her a happy birthday in May.
Sidora, who is married to Ralph Pittman, has appeared in television shows such as “That’s So Raven,” “The Game,” “Hindsight,” and the TV movie “CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story.”
She and Pittman share daughter Aniya Grace, 2, and son Machai, 5. Sidora also has son Josiah from a previous relationship.
In June, Eva Marcille, who has appeared on “RHOA” for three seasons, announced she is retiring her peach.
“I appreciate the bond of friendship that I’ve made with my castmates and strong personal relationships I have with numerous executives and producers of Bravo,” she said in a statement. “I am thankful for the opportunity I was provided, however, after speaking with my family and representatives, I believe that what I hope to accomplish for the culture and community will be better served by focusing on other opportunities.”
Per Love B Scott, Burruss has confirmed that the “core four” Housewives — including Kenya Moore, Cynthia Bailey, and Porsha Williams — have begun filming the new season.
Despite rumors, a Bravo spokesperson recently told People that OG NeNe Leakes has not been fired.
“There is no truth to this story — NeNe was not fired and conversations for the next season are still ongoing,” the spokesperson told the outlet.
