Olympian Sanya Richards-Ross Reportedly Joins 'RHOA,' Replacing Porsha Williams & Cynthia Bailey For Season 14
It’s going down in the ATL!
After OK! spilled Real Housewives of Atlanta stars Cynthia Bailey and Porsha Williams are out for season 14, reports are surfacing Olympian Sanya Richards-Ross is being eyed as a potential castmate.
The track star is already gearing up to begin filming with the ladies, reported LOVEBSCOTT. If all goes well, and the audience takes to her, producers will crown her as a full-time cast member.
Richards-Ross is a phenom on the track, primarily in the 400-meter sprint. She was the 2012 Olympic champion, 2009 world champion, 2008 Olympic bronze medalist, and 2005 world silver medalist in the sport.
Following a career-ending injury in 2016, the 36-year-old former athlete retired and joined NBC as a track and field analyst. She published her memoir, Chasing Grace: What the Quarter Mile has Taught Me about God and Life, a year later.
