LOS ANGELES (LALATE EXCLUSIVE) – Is Kandi Burruss joining Dancing with the Stars next season? While Kandi, ABC and BravoTV have yet to comment which Bravolebrity, if any, could be joining DWTS next season, at the moment it would seem likely that Kandi would be the likely Bravolebrity frontrunner followed by Kyle Richards and either Vicki Gunvalson or Tamra Barney.
ABC’s DWTS castings took a turn several seasons ago when the show casted Lisa Vanderpump as its first BravoTV star. The RHOBH & Pump Rules star at the time had one of the digital footprints on social media of any Bravo personality. In fact, Lisa’s appearance played a major storyline in the last RHOBH season with the “fake fainting” debate. Vanderpump has admitted to news that NeNe Leakes often calls her for advice on housewives shows. And shortly around the same time, Leakes inked her spot on DWTS, the second Bravolebrity to date.
ABC has not indicated if it would look to BravoTV again for another member next season. But if ABC’s previous casting history is any indication, ABC has casted BravoTV personalities with the largest digital footprints. Among them are Kandi, Kyle, Vicki, Tamra and a few others.
But Burruss is widely perceived as one of the most popular housewives of the entire franchise, which would could correlate into record voting if Kandi joined the show. Kyle Richards, however, from her splits to gymnastic moves, has long indicated on RHOBH that she is exceptionally flexible. Finally Tamra Barney for many has been perceived as the fittest of any Bravolebrity currently because her enormous devotion to fitness and operation of her facility CUT Fitness. For now, Kandi seems the most likely, if she wants the gig. And if the judges don’t give Kandi top scores, they will have to answer to Mama Joyce.
