Viewers know Kandi Burruss from The Real Housewives of Atlanta, but long before catfighting, the Bravo personality was top charting in the music industry. A former member of the platinum-selling group Xscape, the Grammy-winning songwriter (TLC's "No Scrubs") wrote hit singles for superstars like Whitney Houston, Pink and Destiny's Child. Now, she's headlining her own Bravo show. The Kandi Factory (premiering Tuesday at 10/9c) brings Burruss back to her musical roots, as she mentors amateur musicians to find the next big sensation.
Bravo has green-lit 17 new series and added three scripted projects and three unscripted projects, including a spin-off for Real Housewives of Atlanta star Phaedra Parks, to its development slate, the network announced on Tuesday. Additionally, 18 reality shows have been renewed.
Rich People's Problems will feature Parks as the lawyer to Atlanta's rich and famous. Prior to Housewives, Parks made her living as an attorney, but has since added reality star, aspiring funeral home owner, workout video instructor and stun gun designer to her resume.
