We’re still midway through Season 6 of Real Housewives of Atlanta, but there’s already word around the rumor mills that the Season 7 cast has been finalized. And while the blogs and Twittersphere have been alive with speculation about whether fifth season newbies Kenya Moore and Porsha Williams will be given the axe, rumor has it that not only will all of the current Housewives be back, but they’ll have two new Southern Peaches joining them.

Have any guesses as to who those ladies might be? If you guessed NeNe Leakes’s ex-bestie (and former bridesmaid) Marlo Hampton, you are absolutely correct — and we’re not shocked. The friendship and the ensuing fallout between these women was very real, and — as much as it pains us to admit — it makes for good television.

All About the Real Housewives also reports that NeNe’s pal Mynique Smith, who notably attended the disastrous Pillow Talk party this season, will also be on board for the Bravo reality hit’s next outing. This also seems like a natural choice, as Mynique and her hubby Chuck have been involved in a lot of the drama this season — particularly with Kandi Burruss. Don’t you dare imply Todd is an opportunist, he’s a prince!

Here’s what else the (unconfirmed) report has to say about the season:

“The entire cast of the popular Bravo reality tv series is expected to return for a new season- NeNe Leakes, Kandi Burruss, Porsha Stewart, Phaedra Parks, Cynthia Bailey and Kenya Moore. On top of that, it looks like the drama Marlo Hampton stirred up with Leakes in her recent appearances snagged her a full time cast member spot as well. But it doesn’t end there as Mynique Smith is also rumored to be joining the cast. Viewers might remember Smith, who’s NFL player husband Chuck reportedly used to date Burruss and Phaedra. The couple, who are close friends with Leakes and her husband Gregg, caused a slight stir in recent episodes when he denied his relationship with both of the women in what appeared to be an attempt to save face with his wife.”
