Kandi Burruss is finding new ways to pay her “bills, bills, bills.”

The Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter and star of Bravo‘s Real Housewives of Atlanta is joining the cast of NEWSical The Musical . The off-Broadway’s smash comedy is described as a “Forever changing, completely un-sanitized musical mockery of all the news that’s fit to spoof. From Honey Boo Boo to selfies, Pope Francis to Miley Cyrus, marriage equality to Obamacare, NEWSical The Musical sets all of today’s biggest pop culture headlines to song.”

Burruss joins the off-Broadway production for two weeks, beginning Monday, January 13th, with her final performance occurring on Sunday, January 26th. “I am thrilled to join the cast of NEWSical The Musical,” said Burruss from her home in Atlanta. “Having just come off of my own musical production, NEWSical The Musical furthers my journey in entertainment to, simultaneously, do more of what I love: act and sing. Being a part of an illustrious list of stars that have previously joined the show is an honor.”

Buruss isn’t the only celebrity to grace the NEWSical The Musical stage. Previously, guest stars include celebrity gossip guru Perez Hilton, Broadway’s original Annie, Andrea McArdle, Saturday Night Live and most recently, La Toya Jackson.

“42nd street will be sweeter than ever when Kandi arrives in January,” predicts the show’s producer, Tom D’Angora. “She’s a quadruple threat: a television personality, award winning singer-songwriter, record producer and actress!”

NEWSical The Musical currently features Christine Pedi (Chicago, Sirius XM Host, Talk Radio), Michael West (When Pigs Fly, Forbidden Broadway), Susan Mosher (Hairspray, Suds), David Foley Jr., Meg Lanzarone and Dylan H. Thompson.
