Real Housewives Of Atlanta is Bravo’s most diverse Housewives franchise, and now they’ve reportedly added transgender model Amiyah Scott to the cast!
According to sources close to the show Amiyah, formerly Arthur, has been added to the cast in an effort to shake-up stale storylines.

Producers are reportedly in crisis mode over filling the dramatic shoes of the departed NeNe Leakes, so they want to do something exciting to reel in viewers and bring buzz to RHOA. Producers have been in talks with Amiyah, who has been romantically linked to a number of rappers (including Souja Boy and Whiz Khalifa), to join the show as a Housewife next season.
Sheree Whitfield is also said to be back, with Marlo Hampton also returning as a ‘Friend.’
In addition to modeling, Amiyah is a makeup artist and beauty consultant with a celebrity client-base in ATL and several links to reality stars. Sources reveal Amiyah is friends with Chad Johnson (formerly of Evelyn Lozado), Keyshia Cole, Amber Rose and more. She also had a feud with K. Michelle. Amiyah is also known for her discretion pertaining to her high profile love interests – she is said to have dated a number of celebrities and musicians who are in the closet and chose their careers over revealing their sexual preferences.
Amiyah began transitioning 10-years-ago when she was 17 and is extremely confident and comfortable in her skin.
TMZ also confirms that former Facts Of Life star Kim Fields is the second new Housewife.
Amiyah has been keeping any affiliation she may have with RHOA uber-quiet; there’s no mention of her filming on twitter or instagram, and none of the other ladies have mentioned her either.
Additionally, none of the reputable ATL blogs (which usually have excellent sourcing on the shows) have mentioned Amiyah filming or being spotted with the other ladies. They have all confirmed Kim Fields sightings.
I think Amiyah could be a really interesting addition if Bravo doesn’t play to the shock factor by focusing predominantly on Amiyah being transgender, but I also wonder about adding yet another woman who is not a “Housewife.” If Amiyah joins that means only Cynthia and Kandi are married (and are we really counting Cynthia?). Of course, Atlanta has always done things differently but in recent seasons there has been a real identity crisis on the show. I would personally love to see one of the ladies from Married To Medicine join RHOA – they fit the ‘Housewife’ mould more than any of the current RHOA ladies!
