There are two new ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta‘ on the block, so get your claws out.

The cast of Season 3 was announced Thursday by Bravo, welcoming southern belles Cynthia Bailey and Phaedra Parks to the catty club when the series returns on Oct. 4th.

Unreliable rumors circulated during the off-season that drama queens NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak might be fired from the show, but they are indeed back for more.

It’s actually Lisa Wu Hartwell who won’t be returning this year.

Joining the show this season in her place are Phaedra Parks, a pregnant newlywed, who’s also an entertainment lawyer, and model Cynthia Bailey, who recently (reluctantly) married restauranteur and entrepreneur Peter Thomas.

Along with Leakes and Zolciak, cast members Kandi Burruss (*who joined in Season 2) and Sheree Whitfield also return.

Are you looking forward to the third season with the ladies of Atlanta?
