Drew Sidora [b. May 1, 1985] is another story of an already-established woman joining reality TV on The Real Housewives of Atlanta. And like a bunch of stars in the business, her marriage is also thrown into the scene. But she is not able to make a mark the way she would've liked in her debut season of the show.
Ever since the start of the 13th season, talks of the divorce between Sidora and her husband, Ralph Pittman, has often sprung up. The conflict came from his issue with her joining reality TV in the first place. After having two kids together (and raising her first kid from a previous relationship), her castmates and viewers find him too controlling for her.
Leaving that for a different story, Sidora's success comes before her days on Disney's That's So Raven, having started as a child actor but barely making her mark until Disney. Regardless, after a number of acting stints, she is still trying to manage her singing career around The Real Housewives of Atlanta. And throughout the years, she's earned quite a pretty penny.
Drew Sidora's Net Worth and Income Sources
Throughout her multi-professional career, Drew Sidora (previously Drew Sidora Jordan) is estimated to be worth $1.5 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth’s calculations. It is not comparable to the fortune of her castmates, like that of another singer Kandi Burruss’s $32 million or recently departed NeNe Leakes’ $14 million. But she's worked for it and is still a millionaire.

Sidora has been in the industry as long as one can imagine her to be and then some. She started out with acting in a music drama, Divas, starring Khalil Khan, at just nine in 1995. However, it wouldn't be until 2003 that she'd ever get a role in anything. But a single episode of What I Like About You as Angela was all she needed to kickstart her acting career as a teenager.
With a major role in Never Die Alone as Ella in 2004 as part of her résumé, she subsequently landed the four-episode role as Chantel in Disney's That's So Raven. From then on, it was a streak of roles for the 35-year-old. She was in a Tim Allen + John Travolta movie, Wild Hogs, in 2006 after the Step Up role. The notable movies she did after them were Man of Her Dreams , B-Girl , She's Not Our Sister , and Hope for Love  before moving back to TV series with the mini-series JD Lawrence's Community Service in 2013.
The highlight of her acting career is often thought to be the 2013 biopic of the girl-group TLC, CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story, in which she portrayed the lead singer Tionne Watkins, aka T-Boz, alongside Keke Palmer as Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas and Rochelle Aytes as Perri "Pebbles" Reid.
After two major TV shows, One Love  and Hindsight , and a lead movie role of Sandra in Could This Be Love in between, she moved on to doing only movies to this day. She has a history with Eva Marcille, who left the thirteenth season of RHOA and has a net worth of $4.5 million herself. They did a comedy-drama, Sister Code, together in 2015 that starred the two and Amber Rose, playing foster sisters.
The mother-of-three did a movie per year since then until 2020 with the two movies in succession, White People Money and Influence, all the while filming RHOA. It was a busy year for the actor regardless of the world.
Sidora's Music Career Is a Little Hazy
Everyone expected to see Drew Sidora living her glam life in movies and music, but her tumultuous romantic relationship hardly let that part of her life be on the screen. RHOA did let us know that she was trying to get her music career going further, but she did get herself involved in it quite a long time ago.
In 2006, she performed for two tracks of Step Up, ’Til The Dawn and For The Love, even writing the latter one. A year later, she also featured in the song Three Can Play from the movie Three Play That Game and writing it as well. She was one of the dancers in Sean Paul’s Give It Up to Me music video, featuring Keyshia Cole.

It's not clear if she made any music for a while but she did sign a record deal with Slip-n-Slide Records in December 2008. She released her first single under the label immediately after in January 2009, titled Not Alone, featuring Atiba. It was an instant hit and was supposedly directed towards her ex-boyfriend at the time, Yung Berg. The pair did collaborate on his music video, Sexy Lady, in April 2007, obviously playing his girlfriend. He's had his troubles since then.
Sidora has a number of random single releases, the most prominent of which include For the Love, 2007's Slow It Down, 2010's Juke It, and 2018's Winner. There is a mention of an album supposedly released in 2016 but with no mention of a name, the details, and the official tracklist. Maybe expand the discography, at least.
These days, however, she's had to deal with reality TV and the notoriety that comes with it. She does have a plan to expand her music career but only with the marriage to her husband staying strong.
Sidora and Her Husband Ralph Pittman Seem to Be Doing Alright As of Now
The 35-year-old has three kids. Her oldest, Josiah Jordan, born in March 2011, comes from an earlier boyfriend, hence her name popularly written as 'Drew Sidora Jordan'. She married her current husband, Ralph Pittman, in 2014 and has two children with him, a son, Machai [b. June 2015] and a daughter Aniya [b. February 2018].
"He's mine," she says (in another IG post).

The first thing viewers noticed upon meeting Sidora on RHOA is the conflict with her husband. It's common knowledge that Pittman was not too happy with her choosing to be a part of the show, just for the fact that he did not want to be in the spotlight like that. But he did reportedly say he would support her choice regardless, and it's now the reason they are on Bravo.
The pair were seen in a marital counseling session which didn't particularly go well, but they've assured that they are still trying to be consistent with the counsels and that they are both fighting equally for the marriage to stay the way it should be.
Fans see a different side of the marriage though, considering she has admitted of talking about divorce on the show. They feel like he's being too cold and inconsiderate to her choices; even the counselor thought he was punishing her to get what he wants. He has talked about depression and anxiety as the reason for his behavior. Even though the events happened months before they were seen on TV, fans feel he's still unfair to her.
Currently though, they don't seem to complain about each other because they are sure they care for each other the same way. Considering the bachelorette party for Cynthia Bailey that brought up a whole tornado between them. They did have an alright Valentine's Day.
