Goodbye NeNe Leakes, and hello Amiyah Scott! ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ has reportedly added the transgender model to the cast for next season!
Real Housewives of Atlanta has a new lady in town — the stunning Amiyah Scott! The transgender model will reportedly fill the shoes of NeNe Leakes, 47, after her departure, and will be the first transgender ever on the show.
Get ready! Amiyah will join the RHOA ladies next season, according to a report from TMZ. The brunette beauty, who was born Arthur, reportedly began her transformation 10 years ago when she was 17. Her profile on ModelMayhem states that she resides in New Orleans and is a model and makeup artist, internationally known in the underground ballroom scene. Amiyah also notes that she has “been faced with many of ‘life’s’ obstacles” but has “overcome them all and have become a better person because of them.”
Amiyah has been romantically linked with rappers including Souljah Boy, Ocho Cinco and Boobie Gibson. However, the stunner opened up to Fabfemme.com in 2014, saying that it was difficult to have a normal romance. “Realistically I am transgendered and it’s something that I can’t hide,” she told the mag. “It’s not going to be a secret. I realized around 18 or and I just realized this would be a secret I couldn’t keep. I want a life and a family just like everyone else. I don’t want to live in the dark about who I am anymore.” She also said she was friends with model Amber Rose and singer Keyshia Cole.
We have a feeling Amiyah will make a great addition to the RHOA cast. We will sure miss NeNe, but it seems like Amiyah has just the strong personality to fill her shoes!
RHOA is also reportedly adding Kim Fields from Facts of Life, according to TMZ.
