Lisa Wu Hartwell of “Real Housewives of Atlanta” fame tweeted this afternoon that she will be on “Tyler Perry’s Meet the Browns” on TBS next Wednesday at 10 p.m. EST.
I called her publicist April Love, who gave me some more details. Hartwell, who knows Tyler Perry, auditioned and got a role as a fitness instructor named Jenny. Hartwell describes herself as a trained actress. She taped her “Meet the Browns” bit last year. The Comcast DVR description of the show notes, “Brown and Derek join an exercise class.”
Love also said Bravo is considering several different potential people for the sixth housewife, not just entertainment attorney Phaedra Parks. A decision will likely be forthcoming within the next couple of weeks since production is set to start next month.
The latest name she heard who could be joining the popular Bravo show is someone she has worked with in the past: veteran model Cynthia Bailey (below) She is co-owner of the Uptown Restaurant & Lounge in downtown Atlanta off Courtland St. (not to be mistaken for the comedy club off Marietta St.)
