Kandi Burruss is proving that she is much more than just a cast member on the Real Housewives of Atlanta. On Bravo’s The Kandi Factory, the former Xscape member helps 16 aspiring artists jump start their dreams of success in the media industry.
Throughout her career, Kandi has written hits like “Bills, Bills, Bills” and “Bug A Boo” for Destiny’s Child, and won a Grammy for penning TLC’s “No Scrubs.” On her new series, Kandi will put everything on the line by offering two aspiring singers, with no music experience, the once-in-a-lifetime chance to fulfill their dreams.
The Kandi Factory will focus solely on Kandi the music producer, and not her personal life. Fans who are anxious to hear more about her recent engagement will have to wait until the next season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta.
“’I’m not leavin’ Housewives just yet,” Kandi said during an interview with theGrio’s Chris Witherspoon. “So if you still want to [see] all of that, I guess you have to watch the Housewives.”
Kandi also weighed in on her reported feud with her fellow Real Housewives cast member NeNe Leakes. Kandi said there is no feud between her and NeNe, however she feels NeNe neglects to acknowledge her accomplishments.
“I don’t think we have a feud. I don’t even consider it a beef. I just feel like we don’t mesh well,” Kandi confessed. “I’m happy with everything she’s doing. I’ve told her many times and I’ve said it to the world, that I think that she’s doing some wonderful things… but it’s like she’s never complimented me on anything… Ever.”
Tune into The Kandi Factory tonight at 10 p.m. ET on Bravo.
