The women of Real Housewives of Atlanta have been back on set for a number of weeks cooking up fresh drama for the fans, but is there a new cast member in their midst?


With rumors swirling about Phaedra Parks excusing herself from the upcoming season of the show, thanks to hubby Apollo Nida’s impending eight-year prison sentence, it looks as though there may be a spot for a new girl to join the ranks.

So far, the top candidate seems to be actress and singer Demetria McKinney, best known for her role on Tyler Perry’s House of Payne.

Cynthia Bailey seemed to confirm the rumors of the cast’s latest addition via Instagram, posing with Demetria at a party for Kontrol magazine.

“Thanks @kontrolmag for the great party tonight@baroneatl for me & @demetria4real @julianlark#covergirls,” Cynthia captioned a pic of the pair together.

While Demetria’s hot career and good looks are sure to make her the target of some drama from her fellow housewives, it seems as though she may be able to share the burden of being the new girl. According to a source for Us Weekly, Demetria will be joined by another new castmate, Claudia Jordan, for season seven.

Do you think Demetria is joining the cast of RHoA? Do you think she would be a good fit for the show? Sound off in the comments!
