Xscape's Kandi Burruss Is The New "ATL Housewife"!+Oprah & First Lady Michelle Cover O Magazine

Deshawn Snow's replacement on "Real Housewives of ATL" has been named. And it's Kandi Burruss, formerly of Xscape. She's now a songwriter (and has written for Destiny's Child and others) and is married to was previously linked to Kevin She'kspere Briggs who produced "No Scrubs". I know Tiny is somewhere extra salty right now. The new season of ATL Housewives just started filming and will likely air some time this summer. Deshawn said previously she believes she was cut from the show because she wasn't a circus act like the other women. So will Kandi be cuttin' up on the show? This might get more interesting than I thought... And for the first time, like ever, Oprah is sharing her O magazine cover with someone other than herself. And who better to break the mold with other than First Lady Michelle Obama. The ladies are chit chatting about the First Lady's first weekend in the White House and how the Obama family sees it as their responsibility to make the White House what she calls the “people’s house.” Nice.

Before you say how fake Real

Before you say how fake Real Housewives of Atlanta are...understand this is a TV show--some things are real but other things the network will exaggerate for ratings. You think someone with Bill Gates' wealth would do a reality show? No, these ladies were lucky enough to gain fame but yet have the same struggles we all do. Don't take TV too seriously. Even the Brady Bunch cast were sleeping with each behind the scenes...who cares it's entertainment. Someone posted this dirt on another site about the (all white cast) Orange County Real Housewives ;) Everyone questions the OC housewives’ finances. Tamra’s house keeps going in and out of pre-foreclosure, having recently been renegotiated into a 40-year loan, but Simon remains unemployed. Vicki purchased a second home in Coto just before the real estate market tanked. Many accuse Gretchen of being a gold digger, but she reportedly got nothing when Jeff died. Tammy found out when Lou died that there was no money, and had to sell her home. Lauri’s new husband, a developer, is involved in many, many lawsuits at the moment and it’s only a matter of time until their financial house of cards falls. Lynne appears to live in a tiny rental condo with her family of four. While she’s not flaunting wealth, most of us doubt she can even reallBefore you say how fake Real Housewives of Atlanta are...understand this is a TV show--some things are real but other things the network will exaggerate for ratings...think about it...Duh!

Jeana appears to have done well for herself, but she is in real estate in Orange County. She is the only one of the OC housefraus who appears to be living within her income. To maintain the lower-middle-class status she tries to live up to on the show.

Yo, Andre Leon "Tangy" Talley

Yo, Andre Leon "Tangy" Talley usually does not register on my radar, (only to view his fooleywang ensemble), but his article in VOGUE (the first and only time I will purchase this long drawn out, ad filled mag and only got it to see Mrs. Obama, she is on the cover) REALLY made me proud. I recommend that yall read it. I was cheezin when I got through reading it. He actually has some substance, geez....

I cannot wait to get this

I cannot wait to get this magazine. Michelle and Oprah... so fantastic! I am so disinterested in RHWOA. I live in Atlanta and I know this is not the true depicttion of classy, educated black women in this city or ANY city in America. This is just Bravo's sneaky racist way of poking fun at wealthy black people by finding the most profane example of black wealth and putting them on TV. That is also why Deshawn was taken off the show. Sure the other RHW shows have cattiness and odd beahvior, but the Atlanta version had the most extreme out of the 3 cities and that angers me. We need to be careful with the trash we support simply because black faces are involved. They are truly laughing AT us, not with us.

I love that Black people are

I love that Black people are running it...Back in the day, unheard of was a black billionaire, black owned magazine, and most of all a Black First Lady. The next generation we got some big shoes to fill of people who (not just cracked) but broke that glass ceiling. A true inspiration we can do anything we put our minds to. Let's keep up the work!

CORRECTION Kevin She’kspere

CORRECTION Kevin She’kspere Briggs produced "No Scrubs" by TLC...sorry had to correct that because i'm thinking he prodcued the TV Show "Scrubs" because Tasha left the No out and thats my shit (Scrubs that is) lol...had to go google that. For a second I was like oh shit a black man produced that, but nope...he's a music producer, the wonders of GOOGLE

Oprah should be on her cover!!!I think its great that she has Mrs. Obama on it with her and i thought michelle outfit and belt is cute. it's funny cause i was watching ellen today and i never watch, but she had a segment calling on the phone harpo studio trying to be the first on the cover of O mag. i dont know if she knew of michelle cover, she never mentioned it. she was on hold for 10 min and after all that they said oprah was in a meeting and would call her back. LOL Oprah is always a step ahead!! YES WE CAN

Oprah is fiya! The first time

Oprah is fiya! The first time in a nine year history that she allows someone else on the cover of her magazine and it's the first African American first lady, Michelle Obama. This is just too much fierceness at once.

RHOOC or one them other housewife's supposed to be coming out this summer not RHOA...Nene said they will air Sept or Oct which would exactly 1 year from the first Season...but whatever Kandi...to be the next housewife...interesting!!! Doesn't Kandi have a child by Block (Rick Ross' co-manager)? I need to keep my ear to the streets on this one. I heard Tiny and Kandi were BFFs...Tiny probably turned them down to do her own show (the did the vblog on).
