Transgender Model Coming to RHOA?!

Move over Nene Leakes! There may be a new legend in Real Housewives of Atlanta history! TMZ reports transgender model Amiyah Scott joined the cast of RHOA.

After the departure of resident queen, Nene Leakes, the show will be in need of some spice and Scott may be just the cast member the show needs!

Scott would be the first transgender cast member on any “Real Housewives” show in Bravo history and could mean another step in visibility for trans women of color. In light of the rising death toll of trans women, it’s refreshing to see some good news for trans women of color.

It will also be great to see a trans women of color on a reality show, so that Caitlyin Jenner isn’t the only one repping for transgender women on prime time.

Scott is poised to bring some juicy background with her, as it’s been rumored that she’s had relationships with several rappers in the past.

We’re hoping the reports of Scott’s casting are true, because we can’t wait to see what she brings to the table.

This Real Housewives of Atlanta season might just snatch our edges to Naomi Campbell status!
