Peter Thomas, husband of Bravo's The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Cynthia Bailey has confirmed that Claudia Jordan is slated to join the cast for the show's seventh season.
After rumors circulated for days that the radio host and former Celebrity Apprentice contestant was going to make her debut on the popular series, Thomas slipped up and confirmed the news.
Thomas spoke with sports talk radio station WCCB about the opening of his new bar, Sports One, when he revealed Jordan was taping for the show in an S2S Magazine article, published on Friday.
"Bravo crew came out, Kenya [Moore], new girl Claudia, my wife, Kordell [Stewart]. We shot at the bar last night until 2 in the morning. The two new girls are extremely beautiful, so there was a lot of chemistry in the house.
The other newcomer Thomas could be referring to is House of Payne actress Demetria McKinney as she is another woman rumored to be joining the cast.
McKinney is currently dating famous producer Roger Bobb, who has also worked closely with iconic director Tyler Perry. According to Atlanta blog Straight From The A, Bobb was able to use his financial resources to get on the good side of Bravo producers in order to secure McKinney a slot on the show. The site reported that McKinney has also already began filming even though she does not have any connection to any of the current cast members ju st yet.
Jordan and McKinney have yet to speak on the rumors. But if Jordan is joining the cast, she'll most likely be an ally for Kenya Moore. Check out what she had to say about Moore in the video below.
