'RHOA': Kandi Burruss Responds To Rumors That She's Being Replaced By Jeannie Mai From 'The Real'

The Real Housewives of Atlanta is set to return for Season 14 with OG Sheree Whitfield as a peach holder and Marlo Hampton finally bumped up to full time.

Now, Kandi Burruss is speaking on what to expect this season. She’s also addressing speculation that she’s being replaced by The Real co-host, Jeannie Mai.

Rumors surfaced that Jeannie Mai could allegedly replaced Kandi Burruss

Season 14 of RHOA is reportedly wrapped but a rumor came out that Burruss could possibly exit she show and be replaced by Mai.

“Kandi was boring this season, and she’s the highest-paid housewife. She’s gone after this season,” a source told The Ricky Smiley Morning Show. “This new season is expected to be one of the best in YEARS. Sheree and Marlo are the stars of this season. Drew brought the drama, and so did Kenya. But Sanya and Kandi are on the chopping block.”

Kandi Burruss says the rumors aren’t true but she welcomes the new addition

Burruss has heard the rumors and is laughing them off. In a recent interview with ET Online, the Kandi & the Gang star says it’s simply not true.

“I didn’t understand. I don’t know who makes these rumors up,” Burruss, noting the season has already been filmed. “I think somebody secretly wants to get rid of me or something. I’m like, ‘Too late. I already filmed season 14.'”

Despite denying the rumors she's being replaced, Burruss wouldn’t be opposed to Mai joining the show.

“Now here’s the thing, I’m cool with Jeannie,” Burruss added. ” And I love her. So, please, I would love for her to come on. Like for the next [season]. I don’t know if somebody wants her to come through,” she continued. “I mean, it would be great to see her. I would love for her to be a part… We’re friends, so let me be the one to bring her on.”

Burruss recently spoke to Shadow and Act about her new Bravo series, 'Kandi & The Gang'

“On Kandi & The Gang, I think you’ll get to see a lot of transparency because I think after so many years, a lot of people don’t want to mess up their brand, they don’t want to show certain things when it comes to RHOA,” she said to us in a recent interview. “It’s not even really about Todd and me, it’s more so about the stuff that’s happening with everybody else that works there and this is their first season on television so they are extremely transparent about everything that they have going on. Another thing is that this series has more men than any other reality show that I believe that Bravo has.”

Kandi & The Gang airs Sundays on Bravo.
