Awesome news: Kandi Burruss scored herself a new acting gig, and she couldn't be more excited about it. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star took to Instagram to share a string of photos from the set — and the best part is that the project is filming right around the corner from Kandi's house!

Kandi woke up bright and early for a morning shoot, but found out that she wouldn't be filming until the afternoon. It's so nice that she was able to just go back home and relax while she waited!

"I got up at 6am for @sewjodie & @latashawright to do my hair & makeup but when I got to the set they said they probably won't need me until 1pm," Kandi wrote, adding, "Thank God they're shooting down the street from where I live! I came home & put my pj's back on. #rushtowait #actingjob #ineededsomeextrasleep #ihopeidontmessupmyhairandmakeup."

We're not sure what show (or movie?) she is starring in, but we do know that she is working with some awesome people. Kandi later shared some pics of her with her castmates from the set.

"On set with @denise_boutte & @_nicole_eggert #setlife," Kandi wrote, along with, "#setlife with @lammanruckerofficial."

Denise Boutte and Lamman Rucker both starred in Tyler Perry's Atlanta-set show, Meet the Browns. Nicole Eggert hit the scene as Jamie in the ‘80s sitcom Charles In Charge, and got pulses racing with her famous opening credits run on Baywatch.

We can't wait to get more details on this exciting venture.
