The surprise however comes in the form of Cynthia Bailey, a model who has also been cast. This brings the total number of Atlanta Housewives to a large seven. The five returning housewives brought us so much drama last year, one can only imagine what the addition of two new women will bring.
As for what is known about the ladies, Phaedra is a high power celebrity attorney that has represented celebrities such as Jermaine Dupri and Bobby Brown. She recently got married to Apollo Nida, and according to various reports, her husband has a rather impressive criminal background, and reportedly did a couple of years in prison.
As for Cynthia, she has a daughter with actor Leon Robinson aka Leon, and apparently has a lot of celebrity friends. She is reportedly best friends with actors Boris Kodjoe and Nicole Ari Parker.
This is a smart move on Bravo’s part as there had been rumors the five returning Atlanta housewives were all getting along, so these two new additions to the cast should shake things up a bit. After all, we would not want to watch an entire season about the women being nice to each other right? Anyone remember the infamous boring season 2 reunion?
