Kandi Burruss is renowned for having many hustles – the latest of which sees her starring on ‘The Chi.’
During the promotional run for the hit series, she was quizzed in earnest about her main bread and butter – the ‘Real Housewives Of Atlanta.’
Season 13 of the Bravo smash is in production and much ado is being made about who will be joining the ladies.
Also of note is the continued presence of Eva Marcille.
The mother of three announced her departure from ‘Housewives’ last month. Yet, this week she’s been spotted with much of the cast – sparking questions surrounding whether or not she will still be part of the show. Perhaps in a “Friend Of” capacity or more.
Well, in a new interview with Entertainment Tonight, Kandi was asked directly about all of this and more (including an OLG spin-off show).
Check out what she had to say below…
On Safety During Filming:
“Let me say kudos to Bravo and kudos to Truly Original, who produces our show. They have been going above and beyond to make sure that everybody is safe. The cast and crew, we’re all being tested weekly, as well as they only allow very few people within [a] scene. If [any] one of us go out of town or do anything, then we’re quarantined.”
On Eva Marcille Still Appearing On The Show:
“I was talking to her about that yesterday. I was saying people still want her to be amongst the group, even if she’s decided not to be a regular part of the show. So, obviously, that’s always up to her. As of now, she’s like, ‘No.’ But I hope she changes her mind, because at the end of the day, we do have a genuine relationship; that wasn’t for camera or anything. She invited us over to her house because she cooked, and then she invited Kenya and Cynthia. And the cool thing is — what people are not going to get to see is — that her and Kenya are, like, really cool, super tight now.”
On Casting Rumors – Namely Nene’s Alleged Departure & Recruitment Of Two New Names:
“I don’t know what NeNe’s doing.
I just started taping, so I’m not sure who’s in and who’s out. They don’t let us know, normally. Typically the way it works is, in the beginning of taping we just see more [of] my own personal life and story and eventually you start trickling in scenes with other people.”
On OLG (Old Lady Gang) Restaurant Spin-Off Show:
“I’m not allowed to tell you [much]. I think the cool thing is, there are many, very extremely funny characters that will be a part of OLG. They will be more entertaining than you can even imagine. How about that?”
Roll on season 13!
