The Real Housewives of Atlanta just made history with its stunning new cast member.

Bravo has reportedly cast transgender model Amiyah Scott on the show, according to Variety, making her the first-ever transgender woman to be featured in the Real Housewives franchise.

It's not clear just yet what role Amiyah will play when we see her on the show's season eight, but we do know girl can slay a selfie. She hasn't confirmed the gig herself, but on Instagram, Amiyah describes herself as a "model, makeup guru, weaveologist, mermaid, transformer, beauty consultant and unicorn with an invisible horn" (we could stare at her feed all day).

Amiyah started transitioning 10 years ago when she was 17, according to TMZ, and has reportedly been romantically linked to several rappers. She also had already built up a following before getting cast on the show. Prior to the announcement, Amiyah had hundreds of thousands of followers on Instagram.

In addition to her casting, TMZ also reported former Living Single and Facts of Life star, Kim Fields, will be joining the show.
