Fantasia had her own run on reality TV with her VH1 show, Fantasia for Real, but grabbing a spot on RHOA will mark her first time starring on a reality show since Fantasia for Real ended in November 2010.

Seeing that Tasia is very close friends with RHOA’s Kandi Burruss and already has some reality TV experience, her addition to the show isn’t a stretch. Plus, with how open Tasia has been about her relationship and family drama in the past, she’d likely have several topics to pull from for her storyline.

And her recent return to the studio to begin work on her new album would also make for an interesting addition to the show. But with her busy touring and performance schedule and the fact that she hasn’t been on reality TV show in five years, some fans are doubtful Tasia is really being considered for RHOA.
