*It was Brandy, Kandi and Andy on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live” Sunday night, with host Andy Cohen asking Brandy Norwood if she would take a part on Fox’s “Empire,” and asking “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Kandi Burruss if her show could survive without NeNe Leakes.
She said the show would “be fine” without the its lone original cast member.
“I know everybody’s like, ‘Oh, that would be crazy,’ but people thought it was going to be crazy when Kim Zolciak left the show, and our ratings went up. They didn’t go down,” Burruss said. “And I just feel like we gotta remember that the show is not about one person, it’s about everybody.”
“I think she’s great, don’t get me wrong,” Burruss said. “I think she’s great for the show, I just think the show is bigger than one person. If that was the case, her show by herself would have had the same numbers as ‘Housewives.’”
Meanwhile, Brandy said she take an “Empire” gig “in a heart beat.”
“I keep hearing that question,” said the actress and singer.
