Kandi Burruss Says She Will Not Return For Season 16 Of The Real Housewives Of Atlanta

Kandi Burruss confirmed that she’s hitting the breaks on “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” and will not return for season 16.

The Xscape singer revealed the news at Sunday’s 2024 Grammys. “I decided I’m not coming back this year,” she told Variety’s Marc Malkin on the red carpet.

Burruss, 47, has been a staple on the hit show since joining the Bravo reality series during its second season in 2009.

She met her husband, Todd Tucker, and welcomed two children while on the show, but now feels it’s time to go another route.

“A friend of mine was like, ‘Why do you keep doing it?’ And I was like, ‘Well, I think because I’ve just been doing it so long, feels weird to think not to do it?’ ” said Burruss. “So I was just like, ‘You know what? I’m going to take a break, I’m going to take a moment.”

“It’s been 14 seasons, and they allowed us to sit around for a little too long,” said Burruss. “But during that time I had started working on a lot of other things, and I got some nice big projects coming soon, so I’m super excited about those things.”

At BravoCon 2023, Real Housewives executive producer Andy Cohen talked about the status of RHOA, explaining that production was on hold as the network reworked the cast.

As for now Burruss and her husband are producers on The Wiz, the iconic 1970s musical which is returning to Broadway for the first time in over 40 years.
