Andy Cohen reacts to the news that Kandi Burruss shared about no longer appearing on the upcoming season of Real Housewives of Atlanta. 

During a red-carpet interview at the 66th annual Grammy Awards, Burruss revealed that she will not be returning to the hit reality show for the new season. Andy Cohen responded to the news on social media and said, “What can I say about @kandi!? One of the greats! A superstar! What a run! #Worldwide #RHOA.” 

He continued stating that he would be talking to Kandi during his radio show. “I have a lot to say,” he wrote. Back in November, it was revealed that the show was getting ready to do a major cast shake-up before the production of season 16. According to sources, producers are taking their time deciding on which women will be invited back to the show. 

However, Kandi said that she was done waiting for a response. “I’m not keeping up. I already said it, so I’ll tell you. I decided I’m not coming back this year. It’s been 14 seasons, and they allowed us to sit around for a little too long, 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.”

She continued, “But it’s not just that, It’s just like, after you really have time to think, and 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 for so long, it feels weird to think not to do it?’ So I was just like, ‘You know what? I’m going to take a break, I’m going to take a moment… I’m not coming back this year.’”

Kandi Burruss was the longest-running housewife on the show after she joined the cast in 2009 for the show’s season season.
