“Real Housewives of Atlanta” fans were shocked to learn NeNe Leakes has decided to give up her peach before filming season eight, although she’s still open to making guest appearances in future seasons but sources claim producers are hoping Kandi can step up and serve as the new lead of the hit reality show.

When RHOA 8 filming starts next month, Kandi Burruss will be the show’s new star. And Kandi’s storyline will anchor the rest of the cast members’ plotlines for the 2015-2016 season, LALATE can exclusively report. Cast and producers are still working on storyline arches for new and returning cast members. But Burruss will be the core of the revamped show, LALATE can report. Kandi will have to remain true to herself and her self-proclaimed “Team Kandi Only” as co-stars attempt to pull Burruss into their own corners over the next season.
