Best Off-Screen reality TV Initiative: Kandi Burruss
Kandi Burruss is a unique reality star because she had fame and fortune before appearing on Real Housewives of Atlanta, due to her successful run as a singer, songwriter and boutique owner. However, Kandi used Bravo’s RHOA as a platform to sharpen her business acumen by expanding her empire beyond music. Kandi has landed a spinoff reality special entitled The Kandi Factory, where she turned competitors with mediocre talent into overnight pop stars, as well as a line of sex toys called Bedroom Kandi. Anyone who watches RHOA knows that Kandi has a high “freak number,” so she teamed up with popular sex toy company, OhMiBod, to help create devices that would inspire closet freaks and people who are out in the open as well, to “love themselves” a more. Award-winning products in the Bedroom Kandi line include massagers, bullets, vibrators and more. Business must be booming because Kandi has expanded Bedroom Candy to an at home consulting business where enterprising individuals can host their own parties and turn a profit by selling the goods.
