It looks like The Real Housewives of Atlanta is about to get very interesting.
According to TMZ, transgender model Amiyah Scott will reportedly join the series for its eighth season.
Producers of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” have figured out a way to fill the shoes NeNe Leakes … and it starts with the first transgender on the show.
TMZ has learned … Amiyah Scott will join the cast next season. Amiyah is a model who was born Arthur and began her transformation 10 years ago when she was 17.
Amiyah has been romantically linked to a number of rappers.
The show is also adding Kim Fields from “Facts of Life.”
That’s definitely one way to shake things up following NeNe Leakes’ exit.
Our sources currently on set say that Amiyah is presently at an event where The Real Housewives of Atlanta is taping; however, they say that while she’ll be appearing in some capacity, she is not an official housewife nor has she been added to the cast… yet. If you recall, Claudia Jordan filmed with the ladies for season seven and was promoted to “housewife” status right before the season premiered.
The news comes after Real Housewives of Atlanta alumnae Sheree Whitfield and Marlo Hampton were spotted filming for the show’s upcoming season earlier this month.
