See What Has Kandi Burruss and Porsha Williams Reuniting
The present and former Real Housewives of Atlanta cast members teamed up on a high-flying new project.
Kandi Burruss and Porsha Williams have reunited for a high-flying project. The present and former cast members of The Real Housewives of Atlanta both appear in MTV’s new comedy Pretty Stoned. Page Six has the details, and here’s what we know so far:
The flick takes place in Atlanta and centers on two coworkers with very different personalities. One character, named Stella, is described as a “proud stoner,” while her coworker Darcy is an “overachiever.” The two women come together over a little issue involving $20,000 of marijuana.
Here’s where Kandi comes in. The Xscape singer plays Mrs. Thompson, who is the “fabulously wealthy” mother of Darcy’s girlfriend Meena. Porsha makes a cameo in the film. Photos from the set show PJ’s mama in costume, wearing giant hoop earrings and a sparkly pink ensemble.
Both women took to Instagram to tease the upcoming film. In her post, Porsha shared some photos from the movie and announced that it will air on April 19. “[I’m] so excited!” she added. “So many great people are a part of this project. Can’t wait for you to watch!”
Kandi also shared her enthusiasm in an Instagram post of her own, writing, “I’m in a movie with some really dope women! I can’t wait for y’all to see it!”
Earlier this year, Kandi shared another exciting career update. Last spring, the RHOA mama and her husband, Todd Tucker, became producers! The duo backed the Broadway revival of The Piano Lesson.
The all-star cast included Samuel L. Jackson, John David Washington, and Danielle Brooks, and Broadway World reported on January 3 that the production had become the “highest-grossing August Wilson play” in history.
Kandi posted the thrilling news on her Instagram feed a day later. “Another dream coming true!” she wrote. “Thankful to be a producer on [The Piano Lesson] which is now the highest-grossing [August Wilson] play in Broadway history.” Kandi added that the news was a “great way to start 2023!”
Meanwhile, among her other projects, Porsha has continued her work in philanthropy. In a February 27 Instagram post, Simon Guobadia shared photos from the 2023 Pink Awards and applauded Porsha’s involvement in the charitable event.
In his caption, Simon wrote, “In support of Breast Cancer Awareness, we attended the 2023 Pink Awards where [Porsha] was a featured presenter in support of her aunt [Elisabeth] Omilami who is a breast cancer survivor and recipient of the Samaritan award.”
He added, “Our prayers go out to these brave women.” Porsha responded to her husband’s words in the comments, giving him some love with a red heart emoji.
