Real Housewives of Atlanta returns Oct. 4: Cynthia Bailey, Phaedra Parks replace Lisa Wu Hartwell?

Former cast member Lisa Wu Hartwell doesn't appear in a new promo photo for the third season of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta," which premieres Oct. 4 on Bravo.

She's replaced by two new cast members: Cynthia Bailey and Phaedra Parks.

Who are they?

Cynthia Bailey is a model who lives in Atlanta with her 10-year-old daughter, according to a bio posted on Bravo's website. She's friends with fellow cast member NeNe and is at a crossroads in her relationship with her boyfriend.

Phaedra Parks is an entertainment attorney who's involved in several charities. She's friends with cast members Kandi and Dwight. She's pregnant and has a younger husband who served time in prison for a "white collar crime."

Returning cast members are Kandi Burruss, Sheree Whitfield, NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak.

I've attached the trailer for the third season to this article. Frankly, it's pretty amazing.

If you thought things couldn't get more awesome than "Tardy for the Party," you were wrong.
