Atlanta is taking over Tuesday night! Former and present Real Housewives of Atlanta stars Kim Zolciak-Biermann and Kandi Burruss both have highly anticipated spinoffs premiering on April 9th! 

First up, viewers will be treated to a wigtastic double feature of The Wigs & Cigs hour, aka Don't Be Tardy featuring Kim, her hair, Kroy Biermann and the fam – now with four kiddies, so help us Jesus. 

A year after Kim's million-dollar wedding (and eviction), the family is working on their latest dreamhouse as they are all squeezed into Big Poppa's condo. And despite Kroy having a very successful season with the Falcons, Kim's daughters are struggling to adjust to having a new dad and two baby brothers all competing for the attention of the wigtriarch. 


And that's not all –  Kim is no longer speaking to her parents who in turn have taken her to court hoping to get visitation with Brielle and Ariana. Yes, Bravo cameras will be capturing all of that family drama to preserve embarrassment for all time's sake.

However, per the Bravo press release, "Kim refuses to let any of this bring down her spirits because as she says, 'Just ask, believe and receive.'"

And now onto Kandi! Bravo gave a brief glimpse of The Kandi Factory last year which scored whopping ratings, and with that a full-season was born! 

Kandi will work with "16 aspiring artists jumpstart their dreams of success in the music industry." Looking for raw talent Kandi will then help aspiring stars groom fine-tune their talents to make it in the business." 

Each competition-based episode, Kandi "will put everything on the line by offering two protégés with no industry experience an opportunity of a lifetime – to master the key elements that make a star and a chance to fulfill their dreams. Kandi recognizes something special in each of the contestants and through the process she hopes to discover the next rising star."

The show will also feature a bevy of industry experts including Kandi's longtime production partner Don Vito (often featured on RHOA), choreographer Victor Jackson and stylist Kwame Water

"The winner of each episode who creates a lasting impression on Kandi and her team will score the ultimate career break – an original song based on their personal life and written by Kandi herself, plus, a music video produced by her accomplished team." 

A preview of The Kandi Factory is below! 

Don't Be Tardy double feature airs at 9 & 9:30pm EST on April 9, followed by The Kandi Factory airing at 10pm.
