Lisa Wu Hartwell is out of The Real Housewives of Atlanta; while Phaedra Parks and Cynthia Bailey are in.

The latter is a former model and part-time actress. Bravo has released a press release that lets viewers get to know Bailey a bit better before this series returns for season three on October 4. Consider these important facts about the latest Housewife:

Real Housewives of Atlanta
  • She is not a wife… yet. Bailey’s main storyline will revolve around pressure from her boyfriend, Peter Thomas, to get married.
  • She’s a long-time friend of NeNe Leakes.
  • She was born in Alabama and moved to New York City at the age of 18 to pursue a career in modeling.
  • She has walked the runways in Paris and Milan and guest-starred on The Cosby Show.

With The Real Housewives of New Jersey soon concluding its season, Bailey and company will have seriously dramatic, scripted shoes to fill when it comes to replicating the insanity of Danielle Staub and the whining of Teresa Giudice.

Will they meet these expectations? Tune in. Find out.
