Singer, songwriter, entrepreneur, and Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss recently landed a recurring role on Showtime’s The Chi.

The “Don’t Think I’m Not” singer will appear in season three of the Lena Waithe-created drama series, as Deadline reports.

Burruss will portray the character of Roselyn Perry, the estranged wife of Douda (guest star Curtiss Cook), back alongside her husband to influence his political agenda and help herself during the process.

The show is currently in production in Chicago and will return to Showtime in 2020. Burruss recently portrayed a drug-addicted mother in the independent feature Never Heard from Riveting Entertainment. It co-starred Robin Givens, Romeo Miller, and Karrueche Tran.
