The multi-hyphenate, who joined the Atlanta franchise of the hit reality series during the second season in 2009, is the longest-serving cast member. 

But, now Kandi Burruss said it’s time for her to take a break. 

On the red carpet of the 2024 Grammys, Kandi told Variety:

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.

Kandi Burruss added:

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.’

There has been a lot of chatter about recasting “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” to breathe new life into the reality series that has become stale and forced. 

It appears Kandi also saw the writing on the wall.
