The runway success of Bravo’s  ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ has seen much of the cast try their hand other ventures. However, for Kandi Burrus the “reality” pie is one she clearly has a sweet-tooth for, as she is gearing up for the premiere of her spin-off series ‘The Kandi Factory’.

Set to debut on March 4th, the show will see the former Xscape singer give two protégés, with no music industry experience, the chance to fly to Atlanta where she will write an original song for each based on their personal experiences. Thereafter, the amateurs will be coached her team of “experts” – comprised of a producer, choreographer and stylist – to master the key elements that make a pop star.

The winner will see their song and accompanying video produced and released by The Kandi Factory.

A reach? Perhaps. However, we applaud Ms. Burrus’ hustle. More power to her.

Tracee Ellis Ross may have found her footing with new BET show ‘Reed Between The Lines’, but the actress saw her world rocked when the show she rose to fame on, ‘Girlfriends’, was unceremoniously dropped by The CW.

Still a ratings winner at the time of its axe, the series was seen by many as a victim of an “Urban” cull by the network.

While The Fresh Prince of Bel Air enjoyed an impressive 6 year run, the sitcom’s impact on pop culture is immeasurable.

Indeed, the show – which saw viewers the world over welome Will, Carlton, Ashley, and co into both their living rooms and their hearts – is a television classic.

As such, the reuniting of the show’s cast was never going to go unnoticed.

This week saw Karyn Parsons (who played ditzy sister, Hilary) host a luncheon to benefit the charity Sweet Blackberry. And joining festivities were her former cast-mates Will Smith, Alfonso Ribeiro (who played Carlton), James Avery (who played Uncle Phil), Tatyana Ali (Ashley).

The Banks’ butler Jeffrey (played by Joseph Marcell), as well as the two Aunt Viv‘s were unfortunately absent.

However, seeing Will and co together again took us back to the good ol’ days.
