Kandi Burruss Says SWV & XSCAPE: The Queens of R&B Is “Nothing Like” RHOA for This Reason

Plus, hear Kandi tease some of the drama to come on the six-part limited series.

Kandi Burruss is giving fans a reminder that while SWV & XSCAPE: The Queens of R&B features just as much drama as The Real Housewives of Atlanta, the new series is like nothing they've ever seen before. 

As she recently told E! News, “Yeah, there are Housewives that come up every now and then and wanna sing — but it’s nothing like having XSCAPE and SWV singing, OK? That is a major difference, because people are going to hear the songs that they love all throughout the show, whether it’s performing onstage or at rehearsal.”

Kandi and the rest of the SWV & XSCAPE: The Queens of R&B cast — which includes her fellow XSCAPE members Tameka “Tiny” HarrisLaTocha Scott-Bivens, and Tamika Scott, as well as SWV’s Cheryl “Coko” GambleTamara “Taj” Johnson-George, and Leanne “Lelee” Lyons — also give viewers an up-close-and-personal look at their lives offstage too.

“I think a lot of people are curious how their favorite artists, what they are dealing with personally and how that translates to them hitting the stage,” Kandi said. “People may get so upset with their favorite artists, but if you really got to see what they’re going through at home or going through personally, then maybe people would have a little bit more sympathy for some of the artists out there, a little compassion.”

Teasing some of the drama to come, she added, “You’ll see all the ins and outs of what it takes to put on a performance like that together, but then also how you have two strong groups basically bumping heads. We’re bumping heads trying to figure it out, and then, throughout that, we’re also dealing with our own personal issues as a group — whether it’s family issues, whether it’s business issues — where we may not be on the same page.”

“At the end of the day, you gotta see how we all are able to still try to be professional and give the fans what they want,” Kandi concluded, “even though everything behind the scenes is falling apart.”
