Kim Zolciak and Kandi Burruss Both Have Spin-offs Premiering in April

kim-zolciak-kandi-burrussBravo sent out a press release today about Kim and Kandi’s spin-offs. They will both be on Tuesday nights starting in April. I will copy the whole press release after the jump because it is sort of interesting. Meanwhile, I’ve been hanging out a bit with my lawyer friends around town lately. You know, just socially…and I managed to find out that Kim’s show will show the adoption process and that the Fulton County Court allowed the cameras in the courtroom for the entire proceedings. Since it is my understanding that the adoption is officially completed, this most likely means Kim’s Mother’s request of the court to be granted visitation rights probably will not happen. It is also likely that Fulton allowed that courtroom drama to be filmed as well. We all know Karen is not exactly camera-shy. Click through to see the official show descriptions. The Kandi Factory has A TON of participants so it seems the show will be a full on season.

NEW YORK – February 28, 2013 – Bravo Media’s “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” stars Kim Zolciak and Kandi Burruss keep it real with their southern charm and no-nonsense personalities as “Don’t Be Tardy…” and “The Kandi Factory” take over Tuesdays. Zolciak’s spin-off, which follows newlyweds Kim and Kroy as they juggle married life and their ever-growing family, premieres with back-to-back episodes on Tuesday, April 9 at 9 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. ET/PT. Debuting immediately after at 10 p.m. ET/PT, is the series premiere of “The Kandi Factory,” which follows Grammy Award winner Burruss as she mentors aspiring musical artists on their potential journeys to stardom.

It’s only been a year since Kim Zolciak’s million-dollar wedding to the Atlanta Falcons defensive end Kroy Biermann, but a lot has changed in the newlyweds’ life. This season as their family grows even bigger with the addition of a fourth child, Kash Kade, they’re working on remodeling their new home while Kroy and his team are enjoying an extremely successful football season with the hopes of making it to the Super Bowl. But as everyone knows, the path to success isn’t without some bumps in the road. The Biermanns are living in tight quarters in Kim’s old townhouse, impatient for the seemingly endless construction to finish; Kim’s daughters, who’ve had their mother all to themselves for most of their lives, now have to share her with their young siblings. To make matters worse, Kim’s parents, who haven’t spoken to their daughter since Kim kicked them out of her wedding, are dragging her to court for visitation with their granddaughters. Kim refuses to let any of this bring down her spirits because as she says, “Just ask, believe and receive.”

“The Kandi Factory” follows former member of the platinum-selling music group Xscape and Grammy award-winning singer/songwriter Kandi Burruss as she helps 16 aspiring artists jumpstart their dreams of success in the music industry. Having written mega-hits like “No Scrubs,” for TLC and “Bills, Bills, Bills” and “Bug A Boo” for Destiny’s Child, Kandi is a music veteran with an incredible eye for talent. In each stand-alone episode, she 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.

From rocky recording sessions to stumbling through choreography, the transformations that the contestants undergo are a must-see as the show takes viewers through the gut-wrenching process of their makeovers with Kandi and her team of experts – comprised of producer Don Vito, choreographer Victor Jackson and stylist Kwame Waters. Don Vito, a sought-after producer, has worked on multiple genres in the music industry including Kim Zolciak’s breakout single “Tardy for the Party.” Victor is a Georgia-born choreographer who has worked on performances for artists including Lil Wayne, En Vogue and Chante Moore. And, with a stellar track record as a professional wardrobe stylist, Kwame is a personal shopper for some of the industry’s chart toppers including Perri “Pebbles” Reid, Tiny and En Vogue. 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.

    Who did Kim’s boob job. They’re spectacular!

  2. I’ll watch Kim’s show. Absolutely zero interest in kandi’s. none. I see it flopping big.

  3. Not watching Kim … but I’ll watch Kandi.

  4. Sher

    Not interested in Kim and Kroy, they have been prejudice assholes since marrying. Will watch Kandi’s would like to see the different talents that are competing. I see that one is from the Bay Area, that will make it even more interesting.

  5. Sher

    Oh and they are photoshopped to death in this pic

  6. Gela916

    Haven’t we already seen an episode of Kandi’s show, or did I dream that? Anywho, I like singing competition type show, so I’ll tune in and check it out.

    I have no patience for Kim, period.

  7. Moshi

    Cool, Church Point is about 1.5 hours from me! Nice!

  8. Ms Urethra Franklin

    Well well well. Kandi & KZ are polar opposites of each other.

    Kandi is a hard working independent woman with the talent, drive, & business skills.
    …. and Kim is a dependent lazy skank with no talent & no skills (well maybe one)….

  9. phakedraparks

    I would never watch anything that stars that trash box Kim but I’ll watch Kandi’s show.

  10. Danielle

    Kim’s hair looks thin in this shot. Is it her own mane?

  11. Lori

    I definitely wont be watching the Candy factory, unless you guys all say its over the top good or something. I can not STAND her voice and the way she talks, so much to the point that unless her scene has to do with another housewife I have to fast forward through it. Lol So yeah…

  12. I’ll watch Kim’s show. Love her with the family. It’s awesome. I’ll pass on Kandi’s show simply because I am not into any of the singing/competition shows, no matter how large or small.

  13. Cleo

    That must be an old pic. Kandi still has her Woody Woodpecker hair.

  14. Lachris

    Kim really has the man whipped! lol Maybe it’s just me who find it weird that Kroy is only 10-11 years older than her oldest daughter yet is legally her father now I guess since he has adopted her.

  15. Lulu

    I don’t care for either on so I won’t be watching.

  16. JustAFan

    I probably won’t watch kandi show. But I may tune into Kim show every once in a while. I wonder does tamara have tea on Phaedra rumored show

  17. Mallory

    I know it’s an old pic but I loved Kandi’s hair in this style. She was so skinny too!

  18. lilkunta

    if kroy adopted brielle/ariana he had to have permission from their bio dad right? kim hasnt ever said who brielle’s dad is. ariana’s dad Daniel is in jail,so did he sign away his rights.

    Kim just REALLY hit jackpot bc now when they divorce Kroy will have to pay child support for 4 kids instead of just his 2 sons.

    • Nobi206

      I caught that too! Kim is a smart gold digger. When they divorce he will have to pay for his boys and the younger daughter that is not his in anyway.

  19. Nobi206

    Kim and Kroy are the most disgusting reality tv couple on today. The way Kim spoke about her mother and father when they sent the $25.00 for KJ was beyond me. Kroy is also picking up on Kim’s nasty habits. Oh yeah and Kim throwing her own mother out of her wedding for using the bathroom in her house CLASSLESS! It’s funny though cause Kroy’s big checks are not coming in yet ( he did well last season) and he alongside his family were being evicted moving back into the house that his wife’s sugar daddy built. Blow to the ego. As for Kandi she is way to boring to have her own spin off. I also heard that Phaedra is getting some type if Judge Judy court show on Bravo.

  20. Add Phaedra to the list. Just read on Sulia Phaedra got a spin off using her legal talents. Is this the demise of RHOA? They need a cast makeover anyway. Including NENE!!!!

  21. I think it would be a great idea to give Cynthia her own show utilizing her modeling agency. Her platform could be similar to America’s Next Top Model, the Face, or Toddler and Tiara’s. I know there are shows like that already, but heck these shows are duplicating each other anyway so why not? I’d tune in for sure!
