Marlo Hampton and Mynique Smith rumored to join 'RHOA' cast

The seventh season of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" may be even more explosive than the current one. As reported by All About The Real Housewives on Tuesday, March 18, Marlo Hampton and Mynique Smith are rumored to have been offered positions for the show's next season.

Marlo, NeNe Leakes's friend-turned-enemy, is rumored to have been offered a position as a starring housewife. Joining her will be Mynique, a close friend of NeNe's and whose husband reportedly dated two of the current housewives in the past. Unlike Marlo, however, it's not clear whether Mynique will be a starring housewife or just a recurring one.

"It looks like the drama Marlo Hampton stirred up with Leakes in her recent appearances snagged her a full time cast member spot as well. But it doesn’t end there as Mynique Smith is also rumored to be joining the cast," reported Enstarz.

The addition of Marlo Hampton and Mynique Smith isn't going to displace any of the current housewives.

According to Enstarz, "the entire cast of the popular Bravo reality tv series is expected to return for a new season- NeNe Leakes, Kandi Burruss, Porsha Stewart, Phaedra Parks, Cynthia Bailey and Kenya Moore."

If all of the current housewives really are returning and Marlo and Mynique will be added, that would mean eight starring housewives!

However, considering that the current season of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" hasn't even ended airing and the cast has yet to even film the reunion, it's unlikely that Bravo, which typically makes its decision on who to invite back after the reunion has been filmed, would already decide who they want for the next season. NeNe is certainly probably hoping that the rumors of Marlo joining the cast proves false!

Who do you think should go and/or be added for the next season?
