Can Kandi Burruss Go On?

Sunday, October 4, 2009

Street violence has hit the small screen with the weekend death of Kandi Burruss's ex-fiance Ashley "A.J." Jewell at an Atlanta strip club. A.J. reportedly died after being bashed in the head with a bottle outside a club he was buying. A club employee is being held by police.
With all the sad news, can Kandi go on?
Her first season on the show, Kandi didn't quite fit in -- in a refreshing way -- with the housewife stereotype. Sure, she had the money, and even the fame, but she lacked the obnoxious attitude, the materialistic selfishness that made co-stars like NeNe Leakes and Sheree Whitfield such gossip magnets.
She wasn't exactly good TV.
Like DeShawn Snow, Kandi was a regular chick. She did however have the drama in her life, most of it emanating from her courtship of A.J., the father of six children.
Her mother was deadset against the wedding, and now it will never be.
What people don't know is that Kandi also just lost a loved one, a dear uncle, a week ago, and was already going through a tough time.
Word is that the Bravo people are scrambling with how to deal with A.J.'s death, especially since the reunion show is set to tape next week.
Should they cut him out of the upcoming episodes? Should they re-edit them to reflect his death?
Whatever they do, Kandi will no doubt be cast as a sympathetic character, especially with her disagreements with NeNe coming to a head now.
Somehow the other "Housewives" franchises -- in New York and Orange County, etc. -- had managed to avoid real-life street tragedy, although sickness did manifest itself
but in Atlanta, it came to fruition. Of all places, Atlanta.
Will the show go on? No doubt it will, but will it have a black cloud?
Reach out to Kandi on her Twitter page.

A tragic situation. I agree that Kandi is refreshing and her journey draws me to the show, as I am getting hella tired of all the other women. I don't think A.J. should be edited out of the show at all, and I highly doubt that Bravo would do it because they want the ratings. I think the question is will Kandi even be up to doing a reunion show? I mean, who would want to sit there in the mist of bullshit that I am sure will come from NeNe with all that she has just gone through?

I guess we'll see what happens when the time comes.
