Rumors are swirling everywhere that producers of the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” put out casting calls for new
suckers women to join the cast. Reportedly, two new peaches have joined the show.
According to the blog, Straight From the A, Demetria McKinney and Claudia Jordan have signed
their souls over to with Bravo and they intend to bring drama with them.
Demetria McKinney is an actress/singer. She has starred in Tyler Perry’s “House of Payne” and is a huge presence in the Atlanta scene. She apparently has a reputation of being a gold-digger. Her boyfriend, Roger Bobb, is a good friend and producer of Perry’s– and a multi-millionaire. She is said to not to have been a ‘real life friend’ to any of the other cast mates and it was the influence of her status in Atlanta and Bobb’s money that helped her secure the job.
Claudia Jordan is a former model who has appeared on “Celebrity Apprentice” in the past and will reappear in the upcoming season. Much like another member of the cast, she was a pageant girl. She won 1997 Miss Rhode Island and competed in the Miss USA pageant. She is also an Atlanta socialite and local radio station host. Jordan has been linked to aging rapper and “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta,” star, Benzino. She’s even appeared in one of his music videos.
The women have been spotted filming with other cast members at Peter Thomas‘, Bar One. Speaking of Thomas, the powers that be at Bravo might not be too happy with him, seeing that he confirmed that Demetria and Claudia joined the cast when he did a recent interview.
The two women have denied reports that they have joined the cast. That doesn’t mean a thing as they may have a gag order until Bravo does an official press release. IF they did join the show, I can only imagine the fireworks. There is a lot of competition between the women wanting to be actresses.
