You know Kandi Burruss from Real Housewives of Atlanta, where she handles the drama with such class and sass that Bravo gave her her very own show. Kandi stopped by Daily Shot to tell Ali about The Kandi Factory, which “is all about me taking people who have always wanted to sing or perform and helping them achieve their dream.”
Kandi knows what she’s doing when it comes to music. She wrote the 1999 hit, "No Scrubs," by TLC, which won the 2000 Grammy Award for Best R&B Song. She also wrote "Bills, Bills, Bills" for Destiny's Child and "There You Go" for Pink.
On her show, she takes two hopefuls each week, and does her very best to turn them into star material. “We change their image, we give them a full choreographed show, and at the end of five days, they have to perform in front of a live audience”
So how well does it work?
“It wouldn’t be a great show if you didn’t have a little hot mess on there,” Kandi says.
In her spare time, Kandi also runs a highly successful business, BedroomKandi.com, which sells “personal massagers” and “intimate luxury products.”
Ali jokingly asked which one would make a good Mother’s Day gift. But Kandi said a lot of her clients are women of a certain age, “My mom says that women over sixty need them more than young women.”
