The Real Housewives of Atlanta is getting some new additions in the form of an actress and a YouTube star – just the kind of new faces we need!
Let’s face it, The Real Housewives of Atlanta needed some new faces. Drew Sidora and Latoya Ali seem to fit the bill. While they might be a bit younger than the rest of the cast, it always shakes things up a bit when two new women are added. Get to know the new RHOA stars a little better below with some preliminary, but useful, information.
As far as Drew goes, you might remember her from That’s So Raven, Step Up, or even White Chicks, according to her IMDB page. Drew is 35 married to Ralph Pittman, with whom she shares Aniya Grace and Machai. Drew also has a son, Josiah, from another relationship, according to People.
Drew has 145k followers on Instagram and seems to be very focused on her family and children. You can see a photo of the family on Father’s Day from her Instagram. She is rumored to be a full-time housewife, but that can always change as filming goes on.
Back in 2015, Drew was dating Ricky Brascom. She was planning their wedding while expecting their first child together, according to People. Brascom was later arrested for drug trafficking and the pair obviously did not stay together.
Latoya is known better by her YouTube channel name, Latoya Forever, which she started in 2012. Latoya is 33 years old and is from Ontario, Canada. She was married to Adam Ali in 2014, but they announced earlier this year they were divorcing. The couple shares three children together, Samia, Zayn, and Ayah.
She wrote a book about her life on YouTube which was titled “LaToya’s Life: Uncut Mishaps of a YouTube Star,” which was released in 2016. With 1.46 million subscribers on her channel and another 730k on Instagram, Latoya will definitely bring a strong fan base with her.
Unfortunately for her, the divorce is bound to be her storyline for the first season. This usually ensures enough drama for a second season but is obviously a bit traumatic to go through while the world is watching. She is rumored to be a friend this season, but that can always change too.
Eva Marcille announced she was leaving the show back in June, and Nene Leakes is still up in the air as far as casting goes. It seems like these new additions would be a refreshing start for RHOA, one that would do just fine without Nene.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta will be back on Bravo later this year.
