Kandi Burruss is pretty busy these days.
From her uber successful sex toy line ‘Bedroom Kandi’, clothing boutiques and upcoming premiere of her first stage play ‘A Mother’s Love’ starring former Danity Kane member D. Woods, Burruss is always on the move.
Recently, media partner theJasmineBRAND.com caught with the Atlanta native, chatting with her about why her Bravo spinoff, ‘The Kandi Factory’ was canceled, rumors that there are spin-off plans to film her wedding (to fiancee Todd Tucker) and why she believes reality stars don’t deserve a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Check out a few excerpts from our interview:
We are enjoying the show, ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta’ but I have to ask you about your spinoff – what happened? Was it your call for the show not to return?
“Well, no. To be honest with you, we didn’t really have a final conversation about it so I just assumed that they were like, “Why did you tell people that I wasn’t being real because they didn’t tell me that”. It was kind of like I assumed that we hadn’t been talking about it so I was like, “So okay, well I guess we’re not doing it.”
Reality T.V. has been getting really big so do you think that it’s time for reality T.V. stars to get our stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame?
I don’t know about all that. I don’t really think that that would… To me, I don’t really see – not just for being a reality T.V. star, you’ve to be doing something other than reality just in order to get a star on the Walk of Fame. I mean to me, with reality, they’re just being themselves and they’re a little crazy. Some of the people who are on the Hollywood Walk of Fame – to me, they’ve really worked hard to earn that. So I don’t know about this.. that’s different.
