Burruss will replace DeShawn Snow. Read more and see photos, video and a biography of Kandi Burruss here.
The drama of the Real Housewives of Atlanta will continue for yet another season as the Bravo network officially announced its return today, June 23, 2009.
This season you can expect Kim Zolciak, entrepreneur Lisa Wu Hartwell, the outspoken NeNe Leakes and budding fashion designer Sheree Whitfield all to entertain with their return. However, DeShawn Snow will not be returning to the show and will be replaced by Kandi Burruss, former singer of the group Xscape.
Rumor has it that Season Two will “document the development of Whitfield’s She by Sheree fashion line and her dating life, Zolciak’s life after breaking up with beau “Big Poppa,” and Leakes’s upcoming self-help book for women.” Sounds pretty saucy! Will you be tuning into the drama of the Real Housewives of Atlanta? Kandi Burruss should be a great add to this season’s cast when the show starts up on July 30th, 2009 on Bravo.
Kandi Burruss was one of four members in the female group Xscape. There is not a whole lot of information out there relating to Burruss, however, after her five years with Xscape (1992–1998), Burruss tackled a solo career from 1998-2006. During her solo years, she focused on her song writing. Most notably, Burruss and a former bandmate wrote “No Scrubs” for TLC back in 1999 and the song achieved great success. A year later, Burruss released her debut album Hey Kandi. After lack of album sales, Burruss was dropped by her record label Columbia Records.
Over the course of her career, Burruss has written numerous songs and most recently formed the group Peach Candy with an Atlanta, Georgia partner named Rasheeda.
