We’re hearing that ATL housewife Kandi Burruss may be replacing Paula Abdul on American Idol.  Abdul announced she was leaving the show yesterday via twitter.

Here’s Paula’s tweet:

With sadness in my heart, I’ve decided not to return to #IDOL. I’ll miss nurturing all the new talent, but most of all..

I’ll miss nurturing all the new talent,but most of all being a part of a show that I helped from day1become an international phenomenon.

What I want to say most, is how much I appreciate the undying support and enormous love that you have showered upon me

It truly has been breathtaking, especially over the past month

I do without any doubt have the BEST fans in the entire world and I love you all

Kandi would be perfect as she is a singer/songwriter.
