In case you missed episode 3 of Real Housewives of Atlanta, a new cast member was introduced last night.

The cast is getting younger and younger every season, as Bravo TV producer's push the aging Divas out the back door in hopes of boosting the show's ratings with a fresh new cast on season 13.

So far, their new strategy isn't working as the ratings continue to plummet, according to Michelle "ATLien" Brown. RHOA's ratings plummeted for the second week in a row.

According to Michelle, episode 2's ratings was 1.18 million viewers. Michelle says the RHOA cast is struggling without NeNe Leakes.

Anyway, back to the new cast member. Her name is Falynn Guobadia, 31, and she joins LaToya Ali and Drew Sidora, the latter of whom was promoted after appearing as a "friend" for three seasons.

In Sundays episode, Falynn invited RHOA cast members Porsha Williams, Porsha's sister, Lauren, and friend, Tanya, to her house for some poolside fun.

Falynn's net worth is estimated at $2 million and she is a fashion model, influencer and public speaker.

According to another blogger, Falynn agreed to appear on the show in exchange for a hefty paycheck. Don't tell me Falynn got the money that NeNe left on the table?

Falynn's husband, Simon, 57, is CEO of the SIMCOL Group, KLC Petroleum, and SIMCOL Petroleum. He also owned a restaurant that was forced to close down during the pandemic. His net worth is estimated at $25 million.

The couple is childless but they have children from previous relationships. Falynn has three children from her prior marriage. Her eldest son, Troy, is 14. She had him when she was 17.

Love & Hip-Hop: Atlanta cast members Sierra Gates and BK Brasco recently announced their engagement.

Sierra, who appeared on 3 seasons of LHHATL before being promoted to the main cast in season 9, accepted Brasco's proposal at the grand opening of his men's store, Band of Brothers, on Dec. 5.

The couple celebrated their engagement in Instagram photos snapped at maskless parties in Atlanta area nightclubs.

In an interview with MadameNoire, the couple talked about their future and their unorthodox relationship.

Sierra said that the success of their relationship is due to their decision to be celibate for a year.

"We love each other like love. A different type of love. We even took sex out of the equation for a whole year," she said, adding that God told Brasco that He would bless him if he didn't touch her for a year.

"When he told me that I was like, 'Boy, you just wanna cheat! Do what you wanna do!' And he was like, 'I really need to do this for my own mental. I really need to line myself up and I really need to be a better man for you.'"

Sierra claims it's completely normal to be celibate for a year while in a relationship.

"Honestly, I promise y'all, once we took that sex out of the equation, we found a deeper love for each other. Inseparable. We can lay next to each other. Most people like to be physical with each other. We can lay next to each other and just don't touch and be laughing, having a good time looking at movies, arguing, laughing again, cooking. Spending time with each other."

Losing a job is always difficult. Last month, NeNe Leakes tearfully admitted she was fired from Real Housewives of Atlanta, the reality TV series she helped to create in 2008.

After calling bloggers liars for months, 55-year-old NeNe finally came clean during an episode of Tamron Hall. She confessed that she was forced off RHOA by the show's producers.

She stopped short of saying why (hint: her attitude needed adjustment).

Now NeNe claims she is "losing sleep" because of the "trauma" she's been through.

In a heavily filtered post on her Instagram stories, NeNe said, "I haven't slept well lately! Kinda in a daze. Sometimes when you've been thru [trauma] it's hard to sleep."

NeNe's followers expressed their support for her, saying she has a lot to live for despite being kicked off RHOA.

Others begged her to stay off social media due to its addictive and manipulative environment.

Tanya Sam walked away from Real Housewives of Atlanta in mid-season over a male stripper scandal.

Tanya, who is not an official 'Housewife’ - but collects a paycheck as a "Friend of the Show", walked off the set and refuses to film the rest of the season, production sources told TMZ.

According to TMZ sources, the drama started at a bachelorette party for castmate Cynthia Bailey (right) when Tanya (left) and Porsha Williams allegedly participated in a threesome with a male stripper -- after the cameras stopped rolling.

The tech startup entrepreneur is reportedly upset over the focus on the show's male stripper incident. She's also annoyed that her fiancé's cheating took center stage in season 12.

Tanya reportedly quit the rest of the season, so viewers will notice she is gone after a few episodes.

She is allegedly so upset that she's not even considering doing the reunion show when the season wraps.

After months of denials, NeNe Leakes finally confirmed that she was let go from the cast of Real Housewives of Atlanta after 12 seasons.

But Wendy Williams doesn't believe NeNe will go quietly. The talk show Diva is convinced NeNe will beg for her job back after the going gets rough.

Wendy, 56, resumed her talk show on Monday, and discussed NeNe's departure from RHOA.

"It's a money thing," said Wendy, who has an on-again-off-again friendship with NeNe, 52. Wendy is convinced NeNe is simply holding out for more money.

"She said she can't do it. She knows what she's worth and she can't be there. There's not enough filming time for her to make sense and there's not enough money in it for her to make sense."

Wendy said NeNe is too desperate for attention to stay away for long.

"NeNe will always be the queen bee and I don't believe she won't be back. I think she likes a lot of attention and I think Bravo likes to boil the pot and bring them back."

Wendy said she texted former RHOA executive producer Andy Cohen, and "he texted back and said [there will be] 'a lot of surprises this season.'"

"In conclusion, I don't believe anything about the NeNe thing," Wendy said.

NeNe Leakes is in good spirits a day after confirming she is departing Real Housewives of Atlanta after 12 seasons.

NeNe posted a boudoir photo that showed her wearing a lacy negligee on Friday. The former stripper captioned the heavily Photoshopped photo, "Sometimes you have to hit the reset button."

NeNe's unmade bed was blurred out in the background of the photo.
 

NeNe confirmed her exit from RHOA in a video on her YouTube channel on Thursday. "I have been on an extremely, extremely long, exhausting, tiring, emotional negotiation," she said.

NeNe tried to save face by claiming she made the decision to leave.

"There's been a lot of emotion flying from both sides. It has been hard, and I have made the very hard and very difficult decision to not be a part of 'Real Housewives of Atlanta,' Season 13. It wasn't an easy decision for me. It was hard."

Word has it that the producers thought NeNe, at age 52, wasn't connecting with Gen-Z. Her constant rants and jabs at everyone from her castmates to producers grew tiresome.

"I'm just so happy that I can say that I was a part of a genre that opened up doors for black ensemble reality shows," she said.

She thanked Bravo's producers for "all the memories, the laughs, the tears."

Bravo isn't done cleaning house. Other aging cast members who will be phased out next year reportedly include Cynthia Bailey, 53, Kenya Moore, 49, and Kandi Burruss, 44.

NeNe Leakes officially confirmed her departure from Real Housewives of Atlanta after denying the rumors for months.

The news that NeNe was let go from the reality TV franchise was first reported by blogger B. Scott in June.

The mom of two responded to allegations that she was not invited back to the show due to insubordination and being a b*tch to her castmates.

"I promise I'll be the first to tell you myself! Thanks you for the love," she tweeted in June.

NeNe's manager also shut down rumors that she was dismissed from the cast after repeated acts of insubordination on and off the set.

"It is absolutely not true that Nene has been fired from RHOA," Leakes' manager, Steven Grossman tells PEOPLE. "Furthermore, it was made abundantly clear prior that she will always be welcome on the series as long as she wants to be."

A confidential source told Sandrarose.com that NeNe was "hurt and depressed" after being dismissed from Bravo's longest-running 'Real Housewives' franchise.

"She thinks her friends have abandoned her and she can't trust anyone."

According to earlier reports, NeNe was canned by Bravo execs after years of intolerable behavior and insubordination on the set.

According to gossip blogger B. Scott, NeNe will soon go public with allegations of racial discrimination against True Entertainment and Bravo.
