Kandi Burruss has landed a recurring role on Lena Waithe's series, The Chi which streams on Showtime.
According to Deadline, Kandi will play Roselyn Perry, the estranged wife of Douda (guest star Curtiss Cook), back at his side to influence his political agenda and to help herself.
Season three cast includes Ntare Guma Mbaho Mwine (Queen of Katwe), Jacob Latimore (Sleight), Alex Hibbert (Moonlight), Yolonda Ross (Treme), Shamon Brown Jr., Michael Epps, and Birgundi Baker.
The successful show landed some unsavory headlines after Jason Mitchell, one of the stars of The Chi, was dropped from the popular series following claims of misconduct.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Tiffany Boone, who played Mitchell's girlfriend on 'The Chi,' was among several actresses on the series who had issues with Mitchell. Boone reportedly made several complaints of sexual harassment and allegedly felt so unsafe with Mitchell that at times her fiance, 'Dear White People' actor Marque Richardson, came to set when she shot scenes with him. She later told producers of the show that she could not continue to work with him.
Mitchell's character will reportedly be killed off in the upcoming season.
