Kandi Burruss Readies Her OWN BRAVO SHOW "The Kandi Factory"

Kim Zolciak isn't the only ATL Housewife getting a spinoff show.  As we previously mentioned, Kandi Burruss is indeed set to kick off her very own show as well.  And it has just been given the official greenlight from BRAVO.

 

Deets inside...

Last month, single mom Kandi had Bravo cameras in tow at her sex toy line launch in NYC...but they weren't the "Real Housewives of Atlanta" cameras.  So we figured she was getting her own spinoff.

And today, BRAVO confirmed that they have officially given the greenlight for "The Kandi Factory" starring, of course, Kandi Burruss herself.

The new special will follow “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star and multi-platinum songwriter as she helps other artists reach their musical dreams. Ever since Kandi turned Kim Zolciak‘s single “Tardy for the Party” into a digital download phenomenon, she has been bombarded by thousands of wannabe artists desperate for her popstar secrets.  So Kandi believes she can turn anyone with raw talent and drive into “something hot” and wants to give aspiring artists a shot at their dream.

According to Bravo, in the special, Kandi will give two protégés the opportunity to come to Atlanta and learn the fundamentals of pop music success. She has identified three factors that have to fit perfectly together to create a pop sensation: the song, the look and the performance.  Then Kandi and her team of experts at The Kandi Factory will work with the two contestants in order to turn them into music superstars.

“With her breakout personality and straightforward attitude, Bravo fans have grown to love Kandi on ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta,’” said Eli Lehrer, Vice President of Development for Bravo. “‘The Kandi Factory’ will capture a unique look at her successful music career as Kandi transforms two music hopefuls into the next big popstar.”

Will you be watching?  P.S.  Kandi's also switching gears with music and focusing on writing country hits for popular artist, JoDee Messina.

I like Kandi...but I have to

I like Kandi...but I have to agree...I can't imagine her alone on a reality show. I don't think she is boring, but at the same time, I don't find her interesting enough to have her own show. This reminds me of a football player whose two employees/assistants are making his show...I hope that doesn't happen to Kandi.

Jazze Pha has already tried

Jazze Pha has already tried this formula and it didn't work. I don't like the title. At first glance you would think this was a sensual, soft core porn escapade. With that being said, it doesn't seem interesting. Too many karaoke reality shows already exist. X-Factor, American idol, The Voice, Make me a superstar...etc. You just need something fresh. Would have loved if she was bringing you into the studio with big name artist. Showing the difficulties in composing the records, the negotiations, etc. A little bit more of the business side of music. Leave the drama at home.

Congrats to Kandi but I dont

Congrats to Kandi but I dont find her interesting enough to follow her on an entire show. She seriously didnt bring anything to RHOA other than Tardy for the Party. I guess if the show included a Xscape reunion situation, it would be cool. But...why not?

GO KANDI! While she is not a great singer, and she has problems producing hits for herself, she is a musical genius when it comes to writing hits for others. So Kandi and Kim have their own shows?! Ladies watch your back because NeNe is NOT happy right now! I loved NeNe the first season, but everything after she is just a stereotypical loud, ghetto, black women. Sad but true!

I actually think the show

I actually think the show would be better without Nene. Being a reality show personality has that woman thinking she is a celebrity. Nene has become a pretentious monster. I don't see how she can think that anyone sees her beyond being abrasive, ignorant and out of touch with "reality". I hope Phaedra and new girl bring her down a couple of notches.

Ladies and gentleman, this is

Ladies and gentleman, this is what you call ignorance. Wow! Do you actually hear yourself? Television is not JUST for entertainment? It is also a platform that educate. So what is Sesame Street (a long-standing program where pre-schoolers learn from) ... why is there a network called CNN, why is there CBS Evening News? To EDUCATE the masses and keep them informed. You need to pick up a book. Please don't EVER re-produce because I would hate for your ignorance to trickle down. You are a lost soul. Folks like you are the one's that continue to support and perpetuate the ignorance that is Nene. Applauding her childish behavior.
