Drew Sidora is reportedly joining season 13 RHOA
Love B. Scott reports that Sidora is a new full-time cast member of RHOA. Sidora allegedly has been in talks with RHOA producers for several years and after the latest cast member shake-up, Sidora finally has her peach.
Scott reports that Sidora is also bringing along her close friend, Canadian YouTube star Latoya Ali, aka LaToyaForever. Ali filmed a few scenes with the cast last year, but none made the show. Ali is also friends with Kandi Burruss.
While Sidora’s filming process is going smoothly, the same can’t be said for Ali. The popular YouTube star is in the middle of a divorce with her husband and he has been reluctant with filming certain aspects of their story. Ali’s role will be as a friend to the show.
The report reveals that producers are adding Sidora and Ali to appear to a younger demographic. Sidora and Ali are 35 and 33, respectively.

In 2019, Sidora took her talents to the stage, starring in the stage adaptation of Set It Off as Jada Pinkett Smith’s character Stoney. Sidora departed the play early after suffering an injury to her achilles heel.
Sidora underwent surgery and was forced to sit the remainder of the play out, but hoped to return once she healed. After not hearing from the promoter, Je’Caryous Johnson, she sued for over $1 million in damages, as reported by Eurweb.
Sidora lives in Atlanta with her husband and three children. Prior to marrying business consultant Ralph Pittman, Sidora was engaged to be married to record executive, Ricky Brascom. Brascom was arrested for drug trafficking, which Sidora told People in a 2015 interview that she was blindsided about.
Sidora and Pittman married in 2014. They share two children together and raise Sidora’s son from her relationship with Brascom.
If the rumors of Sidora joining the cast are true, she’d be the second actress on the cast. Kim Fields joined in season 7 and left after one season to focus on her acting and directing career.
