'Real Housewives of Atlanta' Casting Confirmed! Original Cast to Return with NeNe Leakes Plus Two More


Multiple sources confirmed that "Real Housewives of Atlanta's" original cast will all return for season 7.

This means that Kandi Burruss, Kenya Moore, Cynthia Bailey, Phaedra Parks, Porsha Williams and NeNe Leakes will all be featured in the show's upcoming season, according to US Weekly.

To add to the thrill, two new cast members have also been named, specifically, Demetria McKinney and Claudia Jordan.

McKinney will reportedly join the cast as a full-time housewife, while "Deal or No Deal" star Jordan will sign on as a recurring guest on the show, E! News reported.

Jordan's other credits include a two-episode appearance on "The Celebrity Apprentice." The former Miss Rhode Island also competed in the Miss USA pageant and is presently involved with being a DJ at DishNetwork's "Rickey Smiley Show," according to the Christian Post.

McKinney on the other hand works as a singer and philanthropist. She has appeared on a handful of Tyler Perry shows, specifically TBS' "House of Payne," the same publication noted.

Leakes' contract will expire after season 7 which means that this could possibly be the former "Glee" star's last season on "RHOA."

Meanwhile, months ago, the fate of all of the housewives was in question especially after Moore and Williams got into a huge fight back in March during the show's reunion show.

Williams attacked Moore and was later on arrested by police officials.

At that time, Leakes publicly defended Williams via her Twitter account where she wrote, "condone violence."

This triggered even more controversy that the "RHOA" cast members are taking sides. However, today, it seems that everything that has been ironed out amongst all of them.

As of late, none of the housewives have commented regarding the news and there is still no set date for the "Real Housewives of Atlanta's" season 7 premiere.
