Is Kandi Burruss Joining the Cast of ‘Empire’?


Kandi Burruss has made no secret about her love for FOX’s scripted hit, Empire, and now it looks like the Kandi Koated mogul might have a shot at joining the cast.

The 39-year-old recently informed her social media followers that she’s very amenable to the idea of tackling a guest role on the show.

One of Kandi’s Twitter followers recently suggested she should join the show as the mother of character Freda Gatz, played by rapper Bre-Z.

While Kandi certainly has enough on her plate as it is, between raising her two kids, running Kandi Koated, and Real Housewives of Atlanta, which starts filming again soon, she made it clear she would eagerly accept the part.

“Great idea,” she replied.

This isn’t the first time Kandi’s hinted she’s into the idea of becoming Empire’s newest star.

Just a few months ago, the reality TV darling posted a photo of herself with actress Taraji P. Henson to Instagram, informing fans she’s definitely a member of Team Cookie.

Kandi also took some inspiration from Cookie’s sexy style in a recent photo shoot, posing in lingerie similar to a look the Lyons family matriarch wore on the show.

We think Kandi would make a great addition to the cast — let’s just hope she doesn’t leave RHoA for scripted TV!
