Kandi Burruss Reveals New Details About the “Heart-to-Heart” She Had with Andy Cohen About Her RHOA Departure

The RHOA alum opened up about how Andy reacted after she decided to step away from the show.

When Kandi Burruss announced last month that she was leaving The Real Housewives of Atlanta after 14 seasons on the cast, Andy Cohen gushed on Instagram that Kandi is “one of the greats” and a “superstar.” On his Sirius XM show, Radio Andy, he declared, “She impacted not only the show, but she impacted the way that we do business behind the scenes, and that is powerful.”

More recently, Kandi shared new details about how Andy initially reacted to the news.

On the February 29 episode of The Viall Files podcast, Kandi clarified that she chose leave the show and went on to detail the conversation she had with the Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen host after he heard the news. “Andy was actually sad that I left,” she said. “He and I had our good heart-to-heart before anybody else in the world knew. We had our own moment.”

Once Andy confirmed he had been notified of Kandi’s departure, “He was just like, ‘I mean, I don’t know how I feel about this,'” Kandi shared. “And I said, ‘Well, I don’t know how I feel about it either, but I just think it’s time.'”

Kandi first announced she was leaving RHOA while walking the red carpet at the 2024 Grammy Awards in February. “I decided I’m not coming back this year,” she told Variety. “I’m going to take a break, I’m going to take a moment… I’m not coming back this year.”

When Andy posted about the news on Instagram, several Bravolebs commented on his post with heartfelt reactions. Cynthia Bailey dubbed her former RHOA castmate “the people’s champ,” while Guerdy Abraira and Lesa Milan both called Kandi a “queen.” Gizelle Bryant also praised Kandi for being “a straight shooter.”
