*Kandi Burruss of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” sat down with TV Guide to discuss her involvement in another season of the Bravo reality series.
“To be honest with you, I didn’t know if I was coming back,” she told the magazine. “I was like, ‘Eh, I don’t know.’” It was the businesswoman in her who made the call.
“It’s both good and bad being on this show. I’m glad to be part of a successful series, of course, but there are other things that [the cast] can’t talk about on our end that we feel should be better,” she says. “I didn’t feel like I had to do the show, but I knew it would be a good tool to do the things I want to do outside of it.”
First up? A new album, out Dec. 14. She sang one of the tracks on Monday’s “Housewives.”
In the below TV Guide Q&A, Kandi talks about working with cast member Kim on new material, being forced to make peace with NeNe, and beginning a new relationship on TV. (Her fiancé, Ashley Jewell, who viewers got to know in Season 2, was killed in a bar fight last year).
