Kandi Burruss guest starred in the cast of the Broadway musical Chicago last year, and a new dramatic acting role is about to take her back to the Windy City state of mind.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta singer, who is currently expecting her third child via surrogate, has announced that she will appear as a character named Rosalyn Perry on Season 3 of The Chi, Lena Waithe's gritty television exploration of the South Side of Chicago. And speaking of drama, Kandi will also return to RHOA for an explosive Season 12 on Sunday, November 3 at 8/7c.
"I’m thankful to God for all the blessings that’s happening in my life right now!" she wrote in an Instagram post. "So excited to share that I’ve joined #TheChi for a recurring role in season 3!!!!! Thank you @lenawaithe & The Chi team for allowing me to be a part of this amazing show! I can’t wait for the world to meet Rosalyn Perry!"
When Kandi appeared on Broadway, she told The Daily Dish that people could expect to see a whole different side of her than what they normally see, so we fans can assume the same for her portrayal of Rosalyn Perry.
"I feel like people see me do business. They see me hang with the girls and act crazy with the girls, but they never really get to see a lot of me performing, singing," she said. "It's so funny just doing the Xscape reality show for Bravo last summer, it was a shock to a lot of people because [they] knew that I was an artist prior to but it's been so long. People hadn't seen that side of me in a long time. I saw a lot of people were like, 'I'm happy to see you again, performing again on stage.' And I feel like a lot of people are saying the same things when they come out to the shows for Broadway. And they're like, 'Oh my god, I'm so glad you came. You need to do this more.' So it's night and day. Kandi on stage at Chicago the musical is night and day from Kandi on Real Housewives."
