The Bravo Gods have answered our prayers, because two of our favorite housewives are getting their own shows! Former and present Real Housewives of Atlanta stars Kim Zolciak-Biermann and Kandi Burruss both have their own spin-offs, debuting April 9th!
Don't Be Tardy will feature Kim, her hair, Kroy Biermann and the kids, and picks up a year after Kim's million dollar wedding. The family is working on their latest dreamhouse and in the meantime are all squeezed into Big Poppa's condo. Hang on, they're living in the condo of the guy she use to date? Awwwwwkward.
We're also going to see all the drama that goes down between Kim and her parents.
A few months ago Kim's mother, Karen Zolciak, petitioned the court for grandparent's rights claiming she hadn't seen the star's daughters (whom she helped to raise) since Kim and Kroy Biermann's wedding. The kids later testified in court, saying they have no wish to maintain a relationship with their grandmother. Ouch.
Kim's dad is also accusing her of being a pathological liar and humiliating their family, but Kim isn't going to let the negative juju get in the way of her TV stardom.
Now on to Kandi!
On The Kandi Factory, Kandi will work with 16 aspiring artists and help jump start their dreams of making it in the music industry" Looking for raw talent, Kandi will then help aspiring stars to groom and fine-tune their talents in order to make it in the business.
Each competition-based episode, Kandi "will put everything on the line by offering two protégés with no industry experience an opportunity of a lifetime – to master the key elements that make a star and a chance to fulfill their dreams. Kandi recognizes something special in each of the contestants and through the process she hopes to discover the next rising star."
"The winner of each episode who creates a lasting impression on Kandi and her team will score the ultimate career break – an original song based on their personal life and written by Kandi herself, plus, a music video produced by her accomplished team."
Let's face it, Kandi is the only RHOA star who actually has talent (okay, NeNe too) so it makes sense that she goes for a competition based reality show, rather than the let's-just-follow-me-around variety. Here's a preview clip:
Will you be watching either show on April 9th?
