The reunion show for Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” has been put on hold as cast member Kandi Burress deals with the sudden death of her ex-fiancé A.J. Jewell.  According to, The taping was supposed to take place last week for a two-part airdate of Oct. 29 and Nov. 5. There’s no word yet if or when the show will be rescheduled.

Kandi’s former band-mate and close friend Tameka “Tiny” Cottle, says Kandi is holding up OK these days:

“She’s doing much better,” Cottle told E! Online. “She’s a strong girl. …I speak to her every day. I go and visit her. I went to the funeral. Whenever she needs me, I’m there.”

Burruss’s Atlanta cast member Kim Zolciak also commented on her friend’s strength in recent days.

“It’s been very difficult,” she told Us Magazine. “I went to the funeral on Friday, and I don’t think I have ever been that sad in my whole life. I don’t want to see my friend upset. It’s terrible. It’s something that will stay with me for life.”

Kim added, Burruss “is strong and she will pull through, but she is devastated. I walked out of the funeral thanking God for my blessings and just realizing that in a matter of a minute, your life can be over.”
