Rumors that NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak had been fired, Lisa Wu Hartwell had been replaced and new housewives had been added have definitely kept the rumor mills spinning.

According to Access Atlanta, April Love, a PR rep for Wu Hartwell confirmed that Bravo has added two new housewives to the Atlanta cast: Attorney Phaedra Parks and model Cynthia Bailey.

]]>The Real Housewives of New York” has seven confirmed housewives, as well. Socialite Sonja Morgan and wedding planner Jennifer Gilbert joined this season, though we have yet to see them on the show. Rumors have spread that housewives may have been let go from the show, but Bravo has not confirmed the chatter. When Zap2it approached Bravo for confirmation of the two new Atlanta castmembers, they replied, “We announced that all 5 housewives from Season 2 will be back but no 
other cast announcements at this time.” How do you feel about having two more housewives on the Atlanta show?
