Kandi was a guest on the Tom Joyner Morning Showearlier this week and it’s clear she was psyched about the impending tour. “Everybody get your tickets now!” she declared. But for those of you who have purchased or are thinking of purchasing tickets for the musical and expecting to see exactly what was shown on RHoA last year, we should warn you that there are some surprising casting changes.
While Kandi noted that the tour features “most of the same cast,” she did say that Meelah Williams from R&B Divas: Atlanta and Motown trio 702 is expected to take Porsha Williams’
place. Though Kandi had her issues with Porsha appearing in A Mother’s Love (as we saw on RHoA girlfriend loved to miss rehearsals) it doesn’t sound like Porsha was replaced for any scandalous reasons.
Most likely Porsha, who is currently filming RHoA Season 7 with Kandi, wasn’t able to commit to a nationwide tour given that she just scored a gig on Dish Nation. The fact that (we think) Porsha’s new boo is based in Atlanta probably didn’t help either. RHoA fans who were hoping to see Porsha in action might be a bit bummed, but we still have high hopes for the national tour.
And since the tour will be going to various venues all around the country, Tom had to ask Kandi about her rider (a list of a performers demands before a performance) which was leaked earlier this summer. Among Kandi’s requests? KFC cole slaw and a new toilet seat!
“I mean, you don’t like KFC cole slaw?” Kandi questioned when asked about her humorous list of must-haves.
As for the new toilet seat Kandi reasoned that the venues they’re going to see thousands of rear ends a year. “I don’t want to put my butt on that same seat,” she said with a laugh.
Are you surprised that Kandi’s leaked rider is real? Surprised Porsha is being replaced? Sound off below!
