Drew Sidora Not Joining 'RHOA'

A rep for the star denies the actress tested for a spot on the reality show

The remaining peaches for season eight of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" are up in the air, but there's one star who definitely won't be getting one.


Earlier this month it was reported actress Drew Sidora had been spotted filming for the reality show's upcoming season. Her name had been thrown into the mix with fellow actress Kim Fields, Atlanta business woman Lena Chenier and a dancer named Tammy.


It turns out those reports were false. A rep for the star told The Jasmine Brand:


"Drew Sidora will indeed be busy this Fall! Following the birth of her second child, Drew will return to TV in a new series, as well as co-star in 'The Choir Director' and 'The Preacher’s Son,' the highly anticipated film adaptations of Carl Weber’s 'New York Times Best-Selling' books. Drew is also on deadline to complete her forthcoming cookbook and planning the annual Girl Summit for her DreamMakers charity. She has truly embraced and loves being a working mom. Contrary to published reports, 'RHOA' producers did not 'test' Drew’s 'Housewife' qualifications for the upcoming season; however, we can confirm that she excels daily as both wife and mother."


Bravo has remained tight-lipped on any additions (or subtractions), but says it will announce the news in the near future.


"It's still too early to talk about who's confirmed for the next season," the network said in a statement. "We haven't begun production, but we're excited about how the season is shaping up, and look forward to announcing details soon."
