The Real Housewives of Atlanta added Drew Sidora to the cast ahead of season 13, but she hasn’t really been around for any of the group events so far.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta might have lost NeNe Leakes last season, but they had some hopefully new ladies tossed into the mix.  Or so we thought!  Drew Sidora was the only lady given a peach to become a full-time RHOA cast member but so far, we’ve seen her way less than the “friends” this season.  LaToya Ali and Falynn Guobadia are both heavily featured, though only LaToya was listed as an actual friend of the cast.

Latoya and Falynn have both been to many of the group outings, and the ladies even went to Falynn’s house for a swim party earlier in the season.  Drew had dinner with Cynthia Bailey one time and has otherwise not been at any group events.  What gives?  Her only scenes show her being gaslighted by her angry and seemingly awful husband.  Did she get a show of her own?

For her first season, there has been very little storyline or face time for Drew.  A lot of fans seem to forget she is even on the cast, seeing as she hasn’t been around any of the women.  We are already on episode five and she hasn’t been to a single event besides the wine event at Lake Bailey!  That’s kind of the point of these shows, to watch the women interact in group settings.  Of course, the pandemic made life (and filming) a lot different, so perhaps it was virus related?

We heard that her husband’s father passed away prior to the last episode, so maybe they went to the funeral and had to quarantine after?  Maybe she just didn’t fit in with the group?  Either way, how is she a full-time housewife that has zero interaction with the rest of the cast?

Hopefully, she just wasn’t back in town yet for the filming of this event.  They usually introduce new cast members slowly, but with a shorter season, it seems we are running out of time for her to mingle.  Get back here Drew, we wanted to like you!
