Mynique Smith, NFL wife and personal trainer, was recently spotted filming Real Housewives of Atlanta season six, and even joining Kenya in getting into it with Phaedra! So, how does the potential new Housewife tie into the cast?
Access Atlanta spoke to Mynique’s husband, former Falcons football player Chuck Smith, and they report, “He said he has known NeNe Leakes for 24 years growing up in Athens and Mynique and Nene have been friends for 12 years.”
The other Housewives are not entirely strangers to Mynique, though. The site also adds that Mynique, “has not officially joined the cast but attended Leakes’ recent remarriage wedding with Gregg and got to know the other cast members and became friends with many of them.”
Straight From The A also reports that Sheree would come to Falcons games with NeNe, referring to NeNe as her “hood friend” to Mynique. Also, allegedly, Phaedra used to “kick it” with Mynique’s husband Chuck back in the day. Hmmm! This will make for some juicy drama!
Cast members nor Bravo are allowed to reveal official casting moves until the season is ready to premiere, but Chuck basically confirmed his wife as joining RHOA, saying, “She is just hanging out with friends, as a guest of NeNe but anything is possible. I support my wife in all endeavors she is involved in. I believe in her.”
Being friends with NeNe for years, who do you see her feuding with, besides Phaedra? I think it’s safe to say she is a “tall” along with Cynthia and Kenya!
Do you think Mynique will be a “full-time” or “part-time” Housewife? If the cast were upped to seven girls, she would obviously be full-time. But if Bravo kept it at six, maybe Porsha would be downgraded since she has no kids and no husband to propel a solid storyline?
