Nothing is confirmed, but according to reports TV mogul and billionaire Ted Turner’s daughter is supposedly being cast for RHOA:
“The Real Housewives of Atlanta” will be welcoming a new lady with a rich pedigree — wealthy LAURA TURNER SEYDEL, the daughter of JANE FONDA’s ex, billionaire CNN founder TED TURNER. “Bravo wants to give the Atlanta series a face-lift, so it’s out with the old and in with the new!” an insider told The ENQUIRER. “Laura was featured earlier this season attending a charity event with housewife NENE LEAKES. She was so appealing that producers kept her in mind.
“She has a busy life, Atlanta connections and the name factor. The producers want to add some class to the sass, and Laura fits the bill.” The mother of three is still very close to her Oscar-winning former stepmother. A well-known Atlanta socialite, Laura is an environmental advocate who’s married to millionaire RUTHERFORD SEYDEL.
She’ll join a show that’s already lost KIM ZOLCIAK to a Bravo spinoff while NeNe has yet to renew her contract, the source said. Grammy winner KANDI BURRUSS has been assured a spot next season, but SHEREE WHITFIELD and PHAEDRA PARKS are still negotiating, according to the source. “Bravo loves Laura,” the source added. “Producers have even asked her to reach out to her high-profile friends to consider joining the cast.
“They’re hoping Laura can bring some classy events and big names into the mix. Of course, an appearance by Laura’s father Ted and his ex Jane would be the icing on the cake. Now that’s Atlanta’s high society!”
Hmmmm..that’ll be interesting to see how she fits in with that current cast of characters. SMH.
