Keshia Knight Pulliam Joining ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta?’
Real rumors are continuing to swirl about the upcoming season of Bravo’s “Real Housewives of Atlanta.” The latest? There’s a new ‘small’ in town. StraightFromTheA, who’s successfully predicted out reality TV’s favorite housewives in the past, claims that Keshia Knight Pulliam will be the latest addition to the program. Pulliam, best known for portraying Rudy on “The Cosby Show,” will reportedly join NeNe Leakes, Cynthia Bailey, Kandi Burruss and Kim Zolciak when “RHOA” returns this fall.
While Pulliam’s placement has yet to be confirmed, it marks the second time she’s been linked to the Bravo TV hit. In January, there were reports that she’d be a new cast member, reports she vehemently denied. “Guys, you can’t believe EVERYTHING you read!” wrote the actress on Twitter. “I am NOT going to be on Real Housewives of Atlanta!!! There is absolutely no truth to this rumor … I have no idea how it started.”
What is very much true, however, is that there’s an open spot on the program left behind by Sheree Whitfield, who announced her departure in March. “Yes, it is official. I’m leaving ‘RHOA,’ ” she said. “I enjoyed my time working with everyone affiliated with the show.”
Since Sheree’s announcement a bevy of ladies have been rumored to be her replacement, including a former Miss USA, an R&B wife and an actress. If Pulliam isn’t taking the final spot, then who will? Check out three women rumored to be in the running below. –danielle canada
