Now that both NeNe Leakes and Kim Fields have officially left Real Housewives of Atlanta for greener pastures, it's about time for a fresh face to make its way into town.
Luckily, we're hearing Bravo has already found their replacement for the RHOA OG… Lena Chenier!!!
But not only is the social media fashionista totally adorable, she already has some ties to current 'wives!

According to Straight From The A who broke the casting news, Lena and Kandi Burruss are friends IRL through the music industry since the newbie's fiancé is none other than R.L. Huggar from the '90s boy band Next.
But it gets better… R.L. actually has a rocky history with Cynthia Bailey's soon-to-be ex-husband Peter Thomas after the musician reportedly lost $10,000 when he backed the businessman's failed restaurant Bar One – he even filed a lawsuit!
Apparently, Lena was one of the finalists for the open spot on the hit docuseries, and after getting along with the girls at Porsha Williams' birthday party last month, producers officially made her real.
Ain't she just a peach?!
Make sure to catch Lena Chenier's debut when RHOA premieres this November on Bravo!
