A Mother's Love, which is based loosely on Kandi's own life, debuted at Atlanta's Rialto Center for the Arts on Friday. "Though things are exaggerated, you will see moments of my life in the musical," Kandi tells BroadwayWorld.com. Kandi is both the writer and the star of the play which also features a bevy of musical heavyweights.
"Writing A Mother's Love has been therapy for me in many ways. I've had to focus and not only co-write the script which is loosely about my life but have also written twenty (20) songs for the play in a very short amount of time which has allowed me to unload a lot of emotions inside of me," the Real Housewives of Atlanta star explains. The title is ironic given Kandi's own recent issues with her mother Joyce who openly disapproves of her relationship with Todd.
A Mother's Love is the story of a complicated relationship between a mother and daughter, focusing on a mother's difficulty to let her daughter make choices in her own love life. Hmmm… semi-autographical, Kandi? Or basically this is your life!
Access Atlanta is reporting that Cynthia is teaming up with MiddleMan Fresh for an afternoon complete with a runway show, make-up tips from the pros, and freebies. According to the site, the event will take place at the Wal-Mart off of Cascade Road on Research Center Drive, and organizers promise "models showcasing fall beauty and apparel looks styled by MiddleMan Fresh. The event will also include beauty consultations and giveaways from well-known brands while supplies last. Radio station V103 FM will be live on location." That's all well and good, but will any of Cynthia's cast mates be in attendance? You'll have to go and let us know!

Kandi admits it was the network's decision to cancel her show. "To be honest, we didn't really have a final conversation," Kandi tells Jasmine Brand. "They were like, 'Why did you tell people that it wasn't being re-upped?' They didn't tell me that but I kinda just assumed since we hadn't been talking about it. So I was like, 'I guess we're not doing it.'"
Do you hear that? I think it's Mr. Ozzy Osbourne inviting us to join Real Housewives of Atlanta'sKenya Moore for a ride on the crazy train! We're goin' off the rails, y'all (or at least she is)! Kenya is treating us to some juicy tidbits in her latest Bravo blog, touching on everything from Kandi Burruss' engagement to Cynthia Bailey's sex life. Of course, we're more focused on her delusions, right?
Kenya continues to call out Porsha Stewart for gay-bashing soon-to-be-ex-husband Kordell. While I don't condone Porsha's childish behavior in any way, shape, or form (seriously, get over it, girl!), Kenya slandered poor Walter's name all up and down I-85 by constantly insinuating that the only reason he couldn't possibly want to be with her is because he plays for the other team. She gives me a headache!
Let's not forget Conya's cop calling! I have no words…but Kenya does, so read on!
Last night on Real Housewives of Atlanta things continued to be down for our ladies as they dealt with family and marriage problems, divorce, eviction(!), surgery, and unemployment.
Things begin with Kandi Burruss talking to production partner Don Juan. Kandi has a brand new office and tells us she writes her best songs when going through complicated situations. And complicated is about to get more complicated as Don Juan has obviously been talking to Mama Joyce about Todd! `
Don is worried Kandi will let love get in the way of her seeing dollar signs and that her business will suffer. Ok – Poor Kandi! Seriously why is everyone all over this girl's bank account? Back off her, gold diggers! She needs to write a new version of No Scrubs!
Kandi discusses the situation with daughter Riley who reminds her mom that her marriage will have to come before her relationship with Joyce, who is either going to have to accept Todd or not! Watch Kandi write the best songs of her career and not give anyone a dime! #Scrubless
When so much reality gossip is petty and, let's be honest, a bit gross (Brandi Glanville'slatest, anyone?), it is so nice to hear of reality stars using their power for good. Real Housewives of Atlanta'sPeter Thomas and Cynthia Bailey are stepping up to the plate to help out an off-duty police officer who was shot while working his second job as a security officer. Don't even get me started on how the people who protect us don't make enough money…
After hearing the news that Officer Christopher L. Smith was shot in the face and leg while working security at an apartment complex not far from Peter's Bar One Tapas Lounge, the Bravolebrity is giving $5000 to double the Crime Stoppers Atlanta reward for information leading to the shooter's arrest.
