B. Scott said Angela and singer Ne-Yo's ex-fiancée, Monyetta Shaw (right) were filming with the cast. Unlike most messy bloggers, B. Scott's tea is usually piping hot and accurate.

However, sources from the Bravo production team tell TMZ that Angela is not joining the cast. Angela is friends with a few other Real Housewives cast members including Marlo Hampton.

Angela has a minor son to raise and she has business ventures that require her attention.

Season 14 will include old timers Kandi Burruss, Kenya Moore, Drew Sidora, Sheree Whitfield, and Marlo Hampton. Sanya Richards-Ross, a former track and field star, has also been added to the lineup.

As for rumors that NeNe Leakes will make a surprise comeback, creator Andy Cohen is adamant she will not return.

He said, during an appearance on "The Real" last month:

"You know, we are in the midst of shooting season 14 of the Atlanta housewives, and it's great and Marlo has her peach and Shereé is back, and we have some new faces and some great faces and Kenya Moore is on fire, and so I am really focused right now on season 14 of the housewives of Atlanta and not really looking beyond that right now."

Angela Simmons declined to name her ex-boyfriend who laid hands on her in the past.

During an earlier interview with The Breakfast Club, Angela said, "I've firsthand dealt with abuse and never really spoke out about it and I know there are a lot of women that are stuck."

The single mom-of-one recently sat down with Hollywood Unlocked's Jason Lee to discuss her past abuse.

The 33-year-old Virgo didn't name her abuser but she shared the level of abuse she was subjected to.

"Well, hands thrown, hands used. I wouldn't say punched, but hands used and things thrown at me and stuff like that," she said. "Enough where there were bruises."

She added: "It wasn't okay and it definitely wasn't right and you know, I knew when enough was enough. Just after a while, being afraid, being scared, that's not fun. There's so many different things that you finally [makes you decide] this isn't for me."

When pressed to name the person who abused her, Angela said, "I would never speak on names."
