With the way people are coming and going on “The Real Housewives” franchise, no wonder Kandi Burruss has locked down a backup program.
Bravo has greenlighted a new special for the Atlanta “Housewife” called “The Kandi Factory,” which would follow the singer/songwriter as she tries to turn aspiring artists into successful stars.
Apparently, “Ever since Burruss turned Kim Zolciak‘s single ‘Tardy for the Party’ into a digital download phenomenon, she has been bombarded by thousands of wannabe artists desperate for her popstar secrets,” a statement from Bravo says.
And since Grammy winner Burruss “believes she can turn anyone with raw talent and drive into ‘something hot,’” she’ll be proving it in this special.
The mom of one has a “team of experts” at her “Kandi Factory” to help her whip two newbies into shape. According to Burruss, all it takes is three things: a song, a look and a top notch performance. (Question, "RHOA" fans: Did Burruss pull that off with Kim?)
