With its fifth season looming on the horizon, “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” will reportedly add two new members to its already outrageous cast. Who are the lucky ladies who will join the ranks of NeNe Leakes?
In Touch Weekly got the inside scoop Wednesday on the two newest additions to sign onto Bravo’s hit “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.”
So who are the new housewives? The first is former Miss USA, Kenya Moore. Moore has dabbled in the movie industry, with acting roles in the movies Waiting to Exhale, I Know Who Killed Me and Deliver Us from Eva.
The other newest cast member is Porsha Williams-Stewart, the wife of retired NFL player Kordell Stewart, also known as slash for his role in the Pittsburgh Steelers offense as a dual threat — quarterback and wide receiver. Williams-Stewart was recently spotted at a wine launch party hosted by “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Cynthia Bailey.
Bravo is trying hard to recapture the magic that the program once promised. In 2009, the show’s sophomore season, it was not just the highest-rated show among the “Real Housewives” franchise, it was the cable network’s highest-rated show, as well.
Bravo, which is part of the NBC family of networks, declined to comment on the In Touch Weekly report, opting to maintain a sense of surprise about the newcomers to the TV show. The cast of the upcoming fifth season of the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” has yet to be announced. In spite of that fact, the “Real Housewives” is reportedly set to premiere later this year. Stay tuned!
