That’s right, it’s Kandi Burruss from the 90’s group, Xscape, and she just signed on as the latest ATL Housewife, while Tiny will stick her nose in as a quasi-housewife:
NeNe, Kim, Sheree, and Lisa, make room for one more! EW.com has learned exclusively that DeShawn Snow’s replacement on Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta is Kandi Burruss, a singer-songwriter from the platinum-selling ’90s R&B girl group Xscape (which also included sistersLaTocha and Tamika Scott, as well as Burruss’ best friend Tameka “Tiny” Cottle). Burruss is undeniably the most notable member from Xscape. Since the group parted ways in the late ’90s, she had a somewhat successful solo singing career (her biggest hit: “Don’t Think I’m Not”) but has seen ever greater successes with songwriting. Along with Cottle (who’s married to rap superstar T.I.), she wrote TLC’s 1999 smash hit “No Scrubs.” Burruss has also penned jams for Mariah Carey, Destiny’s Child, Boyz II Men, Alicia Keys, and Faith Evans. The singer-songwriter has a daughter, 6-year-old Riley, from a previous relationship, and a boyfriend. Burruss fills the spot vacated by DeShawn Snow, who is the wife of Cleveland Cavaliers NBA player and NBA TV announcer Eric Snow.
Now, we get it. The marriage part of ATL Housewives is optional. Anyway, it should be plenty interesting to see Kandi mix it up with those other ATL housewomen.
Let’s Just Kick It and watch some old ass Xscape, shall we?
