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.
