AceShowbiz - Kandi Burruss was recently announced to be one of the cast members for the new season of CBS' "Celebrity Big Brother". While it may be good news for fans of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" star, Kandi's new gig may cost her spot on the Bravo reality show.
MTO News claims that executives at the network feel blindsided with the cast announcement. It is said that the folks at Bravo are "furious" with the reality star for joining another reality show while she's a cast member of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta". Not to mention, "Celebrity Big Brother" and "RHOA" air at the same time slot, which is Sundays at 8 P.M.
" 'Big Brother' will be running at the same time as 'Real Housewives of Atlanta'," an awestruck Bravo executive allegedly said. "She's directly competing with us. What the f**k was she thinking."
"RHOA" producer Andy Cohen also gave Kandi the "Jackhole of the Day" in the recent episode of "Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen". A fan wrote on Twitter following the episode, "So, @Kandi was last nights 'Jackhole' on @BravoWWHL with @Andy? Dang! THE SHADE! #WhatsReallyGoingOn?! #WWHL #BravoTV #Andy #KandiBurruss #Kandi."
"did you watch WWHL last night? Andy made Kandi his Jackhole because of her outfit? I call bullshit. I heard a rumor that Bravo didn't know she was going on Big Brother and people are pissed because it is on at the same freaking time as RHOA," another fan tweeted.
