Remember how we told you that a transgender model was about to join Real Housewives of Atlanta as a replacement for NeNe Leakes??

Well, it seems as though Amiyah Scott found an even better gig than the Bravo docu-series show… because it was just announced on Sunday that the 27-year-old actress has joined the cast of the upcoming Empire spinoff!

Apparently, Lee Daniels loved Amiyah's look after seeing her name pop up when the RHOA casting news first took place, and she must have nailed her auditions in August, because she'll now be playing a singer in the prequel about Cookie's life.

There's no casting news aside from the fact that the almost-reality star will be playing a singer, but we can't help but notice that she does look a lot like Taraji P. Henson — could she have the landed the lead role?!

Congrats on the good news, Amiyah!

Will U be tuning in for Empire Part Two when it premieres in 2016 on FOX??
