The upcoming cycle of "Real Housewives of Atlanta" will feature some brand-new faces this time around. With Kim Zoliack no longer being a title cast member, the Bravo show has added two new Atlanta socialites to the mix. Joining NeNe Leakes, Phaedra Parks, Kandi Burruss, and Cynthia Bailey will be former Miss USA Kenya Moore and Porsha Stewart. This season will also mark the first all-black cast since the show's inception.

Stewart is the wife of former Pittsburgh Steeler Kordell Stewart and the granddaughter of Civil Rights leader and philanthropist Rev. Hosea Williams. As for Moore, the former pageant queen has also been acting in television and film for over a decade, having landed roles in "Meet the Browns," and the high-grossing "Trois." The new season of RHOA airs this November.
