Bravo continues to roll out info about the new seasons of some of the channel’s staple shows. Earlier this week we heard about the addition of Wolfgang Puck to the cast of “Top Chef” and this morning we met some of the new names that will be prowling “RHOBH.”

Now, the network has announced two new additions to the cast of “Real Housewives of Atlanta” with the departure of Sheree Whitfield. On its website, Bravo notes that “New Housewives Kenya and Porsha also join the mix and waste very little time stirring things up among this group of southern ladies.”

So who exactly are the new arrivals?

According to the site:

Kenya Moore is the triple threat with beauty, brains and talent. Originally from Detroit, the former psychology major left Michigan with fierce drive and determination to build her own unique brand.

Perhaps most recognized for being crowned Miss USA, Kenya is also known for acting and having worked with many “A” list stars, is a film and TV producer and CEO of Moore Vision Media. She finds Atlanta to be the perfect environment to grow a business and a rich social life. Aside from being a serious career woman, Kenya enjoys writing, hitting the gym, and never passes up an opportunity to speak her mind. A hopeless romantic, Kenya is ready to start a family with her Mr. Right.

Porsha Stewart is a saucy southern lady and embodies the essence of a confident woman wise beyond her years. A true “Georgia Peach,” Porsha was born and raised into a prominent family in Atlanta and is the granddaughter of Civil Rights leader and philanthropist, Rev. Hosea Williams. Residing in the exclusive Buckhead community in Atlanta, Porsha is a recent bride to former NFL football player Kordell Stewart and takes prides in being a new mom to her stepson, Syre.

Porsha always keeps family first, but in her spare time she manages to nurture a budding music career as well as various business ventures. Porsha will be taking her family’s legacy and enriched heart for giving into her new family with the unveiling of Kordell & Porsha Stewart Foundation for Cancer Research. Porsha also enjoys spending time outdoors, reading, yoga, and afternoon dips in her pool. Well-known on the Atlanta social scene, some might say Porsha has it all.

“RHOA” returns for its fifth season starting November 4.
