Kandi Burruss, the newest cast member of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" reality TV show, reflects on her first season on the show in between filming the reunion shows (part one airs Oct. 29): "People didn't really catch me in a lot of drama on the show. Me and the girls didn't really know each other that well for me to really involve myself in a lot of stuff that was going on. What you see is in my personal life, which is real." Burruss poses in the living room of her home in Fayetteville.
