We’ve already told you that Demetria McKinney and Claudia Jordan are reportedly expected to be a part of Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 7, but now we’ve got even more details about the ladies’ grand reality TV debut!

Per Us Weekly, an insider says that that Demetria — the singer/actress/philanthropist who already has beef with Kenya Moore — will be joining RHoA Season 7 as a full-time Housewife, while Dish Nation radio personality Claudia will be billed as a “Friend of the Housewives”.

The gals will join the already existing cast — Kenya, NeNe Leakes, Porsha Williams, Kandi Burruss, Cynthia Bailey, and Phaedra Parks — bringing RHoA’s grand total to eight, very opinionated women.


As we mentioned, word on the street is that Demetria and Kenya don’t get along but that Kenya and Claudia, who also has a beauty queen past, are friendly. Us notes that producers are urging Kenya to get along with the two newbies (since when do reality TV producers preach peace?) so at least the Queen of Twirl is halfway there.

What’s more? The mag also notes that Season 7 will be RHoA vet NeNe’s last. NeNe talks about quitting every season, but apparently she’ll be gone for good when her contract is up after this go ‘round.

Only time will tell if Demetria and Claudia officially join the cast and if NeNe really is on her way out, but we’re psyched for Season 7 either way!

Are you intrigued by the possibility of two new Housewives, or do you think the cast is getting too big? Weigh in below!
