Confirmed: Phaedra Parks, Cynthia Bailey new castmates on ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’

cynthiaBaileyEssenceCoverApril Love, a local PR rep for Lisa Wu Hartwell, confirmed to me that both attorney Phaedra Parks and model Cynthia Bailey (left) are now new castmates on “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” which began shooting its third season this month.

Mediatakeout broke the news about Bailey earlier today.

I reported the rumor about Bailey being in the running in February.

Love doesn’t know about how Bravo will deal with seven housewives and how they are going to pare the cast down to something more manageable during the season.

If anything, it’s smart for Bravo to shake things up and shift the dynamics, which were starting to get a wee bit tiresome toward the end of season two.

The four original housewives (Kandi Burruss came on year two) have three-season contracts. It’ll be interesting who will stick around for a fourth season – if there is one.
