Kandi Burruss from The Real Housewives of Atlanta is definitely comfortable in the skin she’s in. Singer, producer, boutique owner, mother, and that’s NOT all! Launching her new “Bedroom Kandi” line of sexy, chic toys. Stay tuned for her NEW show on Bravo called “Kandi Factory” where she’ll take us deeper into the music business. I got a chance to chat with Ms. Kandi & find out her beauty must-haves and what she really hates to see on men!
1. How would you describe your personal style?
When I’m not performing I’m very laid back and casual. I wear jeans, leggings, or hooded shirts with a fly flat boot. Now if I’m doing an appearance or something I like to wear heels. I’m so short and they give you an extra little something.
2. Would you say being on the hit Bravo show “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” has helped or hurt your musical career?
It’s think it’s helped… The show has brought awareness to my music. A lot of people didn’t know what I’ve been doing since Xscape with my writing and producing. I went on tour and opened for Fantasia. The crowd stood up on their feet to sing “Fly Above” with me. I don’t feel my label at the time promoted me as much as they should so, I know they heard the song from watching the show.
3. What’s the makeup “must have” you wouldn’t be caught dead without?
A good concealer. I have naturally dark circles under my eyes, people think I’m tired but, I’m not. I like M.A.C’s NC 50 and of course lip gloss! Also a satin bonnet for your hair so it’s not all fuzzy when you wake up.
4. What trend would you like to see go away?
Skinny jeans on men! I’m not a fan. I saw a dude the other day with stretch pants on. I wasn’t feeling it!
5. What’s next for Kandi Burruss?
Right after the RHOA season check out my new show “Kandi Factory”. I’m also executive producer. It will teach you even more about the music business and what it really takes to make someone hot.
