Tonight is the series premiere for Kandi Burruss' new show, The Kandi Factory. Each episode Kandi will take two aspiring artists and craft their talent, stage presence, performance, and skill as they compete to record a song.
Last year Bravo did a sample of the show which ended up being the most-watched first time premiere in Bravo's history. Of course, Kandi's show quickly became a full-time thing after that. Below are photos and bios for tonight's contestants along with a video preview for tonight's episode!
Last night was the first installment of the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion. Kenya Moore lived in the hot seat this reunion as she got it from all the ladies (even Andy Cohen!), so that must explain why she was constantly fanning herself. Reunions By Krayonce!
This whole reunion could be photo-capped with the fantastic facial expressions of both Phaedra Parks and Krayonce. Everybody knows a picture is worth 1000 words. Both ladies threw shade at each other up one side and down the other, but Phaedra and her legalese definitely trumped Miss WHO-S-A. Sorry!
Kenya brought two accessories besides a full arsenal of nonsense: a fan and illusion netting. Illusion netting!
Girl was also shades of radioactive orange not found in nature that only seemed to glow more and more ominously as the snark got heaped on her in spades. Kenya was twisting like a tornado trying to twirl her way out of the insults. As Phaedra pointed out, that fan was a weak defense and she better have something stronger if she wants to battle!
Kandi Burruss has been working on The Kandi Factory for what seems like ages. Her show will follow the singer/songwriter/reality star as she mentors up and coming artists who are recording their first single and creating their own music video. It seems very fitting. Kandi's RHOA co-star Phaedra Parks is also getting her own show…and she's basically Atlanta's answer to Judge Judy. Also fitting.
Who should feel the need to weigh in on Phaedra's new series? Why it's none other than fomer (booted) Atlanta housewifeSheree Whitfield!
Kandi has the ability to make fun of herself and tell it like it is without being catty while throwing other people under the bus. It's no surprise that Kandi has a lot of opinions on her co-starKim Zolciakand the lawsuit brewing between them regarding Don't Be Tardy for the Party. However, Kandi is able to express her feelings without the cattiness that often rears its ugly head when stars are getting buzzed in the clubhouse.
Last night was the season finale of Real Housewives of Atlanta. I would say it was a little sweet and a little classy, but it wasn't. It was mostly a lotta ratchet.
See Kenya Moore threw the big end of the season party. And at Kenya's party she wants things her way – or the highway. Well, parking lot at least. Kenya decided her Atlanta "coming out" event would be an Iconic Black Women In Film gala. She assigned all the ladies of RHOA a character because there was to be some sort of performance associated with the role. The only performing I saw was a low-budget runway show in which they all waltzed up on stage did a couple hip pops and sat back down on a folding chair in the audience. Apparently that's how Krayonce defines a play though cause she was two shades of bent out of bootyshape about Porsha Stewart coming in the wrong costume.
