There hasn’t been much talk about BET’s “Toya: A Family Affair” returning for a second season. Could that be because Toya Wright is heading to “Real Housewives of Atlanta”?
Since season 4 began taping, there have been rumors of new cast members coming to the show. Marlo Hampton was believed to be an official new “wife” before the current season launched. Keshia Knight Pulliam’s name has also been mentioned as a potential new star next season.
Now, there are reports that Toya is being considered for the show.
Toya’s no stranger to reality TV, having starred in two series on BET. Although she was already somewhat known as Lil Wayne’s ex-wife, she really came to fame as half of the BFF duo on “Tiny & Toya.”
However, she’s not the only person being considered for the job, according to Straight From the A. Nicci Gilbert from the R&B group Brownstone is reportedly also a contender.
Toya is already friendly with many of the “RHOA” cast members. She’s been seen out and about with Kandi Burruss, who is good friends with Toya’s TV co-star Tameka “Tiny” Cottle. She’s also rubbed elbows with NeNe Leakes, Cynthia Bailey and Phaedra Parks.
It’s too soon to speculate, but based on her existing friendships and height, Toya may be part of “the smalls” team, which would leave “the talls” at a numerical disadvantage if Marlo isn’t officially added to the team roster.
