Since the members of 1990s R&B group Xscape buried past issues and reunited talking to Big Tigger on V-103 a few months back, interest in the reunion has been intense.
They are planning a new album and still putting together a tour. There are dueling biopics planned. And now Bravo is shooting a reality show about them.
UPDATE: Bravo confirmed the news on Thursday, saying the working title is “Xscape: Still Kickin’ It.” It will be a four-episode special.
Bravo makes a good home for the show since Kandi Burruss is already a staple on the network. Of course, VH1 aired six seasons of “T.I. and Tiny” as well. (LaTocha Scott took part in the second season of TV One’s “R&B Divas Atlanta.”)
TMZ said the show is taping now and will lead to their first appearance together in 20 years at the Essence Festival in New Orleans. Bravo is planning to air it later this year about the time season 10 of “Real Housewives of Atlanta” debuts. The story said Mona Scott Young of “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta” fame will oversee the project.
When I talked to Kandi in March, she said she had a long-time beef with former Xscape group mate LaTocha Scott that goes back at least a decade. Kandi said since the New Edition miniseries on BET, fans inundated the four members with requests to reunite. She was finally willing to move forward after receiving a sincere apology from Scott.
