Two new women will be joining the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” cast this season. According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, they are lawyer Phaedra Parks (who has been on the “Tiny & Toya” show) and model Cynthia Bailey. It’s not clear as to what the exact role of the 2 women will be–like whether they will start off as official Housewives or just “friends” of the Housewives. But the two have indeed been confirmed as new faces on the show after rumors have been circulating for a while now.

Phaedra and her husband are also now expecting, so that should be interesting. The original four ATL Housewives (Lisa, NeNe, Kim, and Sheree) have 3-season contracts. No word on the type of contract Kandi Burruss signed. But supposedly, one of the Housewives will be leaving mid-season. Interesting….
