Looks like rumors regarding season eight of RHOA won’t be slowing down anytime soon.
We recently told you some sources were claiming “Living Single” star Kim Fields got the boot because she wasn’t being messy enough, but Kim was spotted filming at Kenya’s recent party for her hair products line the other night.
E! News writes:
On the heels of the news that Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes is moving on to other projects, Bravo is spicing up its high-rated series with two additions: Amiyah Scott and Kim Fields, E! News has confirmed.
Scott is a transgender model (born as Arthur and raised in New Orleans) and although she hasn’t been offered a series regular role as a Housewife, she began filming with RHOA crews last night for the show’s eighth season.
“Amiya is a friend of Kenya’s,” a source tells E! News exclusively, “and she was at an event that Kenya threw last night. So she filmed last night. Other than that, she’s having conversations with production. Talks are happening but it’s too soon to say what will come of it.”
…Fields, who got her start in Hollywood as Tootie on Facts of Life (#RollerSkates4Evah), has been named a Housewife and the plan is to have her very much a part of the new season. However, a source adds, “Anything can happen.” Last night was the first time the RHOA ladies filmed with Fields, and we are told that there was no drama—just introductory pleasantries.
…Nene, of course, is not returning for the first time in eight years. Claudia Jordan is also out after just one season. The show’s other stars, including Kandi Burruss, Kenya Moore, Cynthia Bailey, and Phaedra Parks, are expected to stay on as main cast members.
