‘Is That Bill Cosby?’ Fans Trash Kandi Burruss for Picking ‘Grandma Myrtle’ as Winner of Dungeon Party Costume Contest

Singer Kandi Burruss is still riding high off the success of her #WelcometotheDungeon party and on Saturday, crowned the “twerking, rapping, singing” Grandma Myrtle as the winner of her $1,000 costume contest.

The “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star announced Myrtle as the winner in a hilarious video posted to her Instagram page.

“… Last night I forgot to announce the winner of the $1,000 for best costume on stage,” Burruss wrote. Well @grandmamyrtle won! I had my team scoping the crowd all night & everyone kept talking about the lady with the huge wings walking around the party. She went above & beyond so that’s why I picked her. I awarded her with the prize at the meet & greet after the show. Congrats @grandmamyrtle#WelcomeToTheDungeon”

The side-splitting video shows Myrtle, a social media sensation, sexy dancing to Burruss’ newest song “Ready for This,” which debuted the same night as the dungeon party. Fans couldn’t help but applaud the character’s outrageously flashy costume.

“Wow! She is off the chain!” one fan wrote. “Winner hands down! @kandi The Gram is lit with post from your party! Congratulations!”

Not everyone was happy about Myrtle winning the contest, however, arguing Kandi could’ve picked a more deserving winner.

“I thought you guys were serious regarding the Costumes!!” one fan griped. “Some people spent $$$ on their outfits, and were serious about the Dungeon theme…😐”

“How tf somebody in a Bill Cosby Costume win?” wrote another. “I thought this was a sexy type party, not Halloween.”

The anticipated sex-themed party drew guests from all over Atlanta, including celebrities Monica Brown, Tammy Rivera and singer Sevyn Streeter, who performed on stage. Videos from the exclusive event showed partygoers breaking it down in red lingerie while exotic dancers graced the stage with their acrobatic talents.

“We had a good time tonight y’all,” Burruss said in a post from the event.
