Last week, “Real Housewives of Atlanta” fans were given a major shock when unconfirmed reports claiming Claudia Jordan had been fired from “RHOA” surfaced. Then the shocks continued when news came that veteran actress Kim Fields has joined the cast for the show’s upcoming eighth season. And while fans have been shocked many times over cast news and rumors over the past couple of weeks, actress Drew Sidora put one rumor to bed recently when she denied reports that she’s been tapped to join the show.
In a statement to TheJasmineBrand.com, Sidora’s reps explained that all rumors that “RHOA” producers wanted her to be a part of the show are false.
“Drew Sidora will indeed be busy this Fall! Following the birth of her second child, Drew will return to TV in a new series, as well as co-star in ‘The Choir Director’ and ‘The Preacher’s Son,’ the highly anticipated film adaptations of Carl Weber’s ‘New York Times Best-Selling’ books. Drew is also on deadline to complete her forthcoming cookbook and planning the annual Girl Summit for her DreamMakers charity. She has truly embraced and loves being a working mom. Contrary to published reports, ‘RHOA’ producers did not ‘test’ Drew’s ‘Housewife’ qualifications for the upcoming season; however, we can confirm that she excels daily as both wife and mother,” Sidora’s reps said.
Well, that rumor may be put to bed, but we’re anticipating some more cast shake ups before Bravo finally makes their final cast announcement later this year.
