Initially, Kandi’s new show was believed to be called Hot Atlanta but it’s now been revealed that the real name of the show was Haute Lanta.
“She has too many demands and wasn’t willing to budge. She has some star power, but for a new show, there’s not much of a budget. Marlo wanted too much,” a source tells TheJasmineBrand.com.
So, what were some of Marlo’s demands?
Sources say she wanted things like “first-class flights” and overall was “just being too difficult to work with.”
However, other sources say Bravo wasn’t happy with Marlo leaving RHOA for another show on another network. Haute Lanta was set to air on We TV which isn’t part of the NBCUniversal family.
It turns out that Marlo wasn’t even going to be the star of Haute Lanta and that they show was an ensemble cast much like Real Housewives.
The Haute Lanta cast was to include “Project Runway alum Ken Laurence; The Fashion Show alum Reco Chapple; celebrity blogger Funky Dineva; Kontrol editor Julian Clark and more.”
Filming was set to start in July but at this point, it looks like that won’t be happening.
I think this is a great time for Bravo swoop in and give Marlo a peach for season 11 of RHOA. Perhaps if Marlo isn’t attached to Haute Lanta it can get off the ground. I’m sure there are other fabulous women Kandi can find to fill Marlo’s shoes.
Are you surprised Kandi’s new show has been axed? Do you believe Marlo was too demanding? Should Bravo make Marlo a Housewife?
