After a one-off airing last year, Kandi’s weekly show arrived feeling like a cross between “American Idol” and “America’s Next Top Model.” Each week she’ll pit two pop star hopefuls against each other in a bid to record a single based on their personal life and make a music video. Assisting Kandi and mentoring the contestants are producer Don Vito, choreographer Victor Jackson and stylist Kwame Waters.
Now, we know Kandi has serious writing credits like TLC’s “No Scrubs” and Destiny’s Child’s “Bills, Bills, Bills” under her belt, but she’s also responsible for Kim Zolciak’s “Tardy for the Party.” And given the horrific track record “Real Housewives” has in the music industry, we’re not sure why anyone would actually believe getting on a show related in any way to that franchise could help their career. Clearly some people will do anything to get on TV.
The good news is Kandi remained as likeable as ever throughout the series premiere. (It’s easy to see why she ranked second among all Atlanta housewives in our Season 5 popularity poll.)
