Even though mixing Atlanta Housewives and business has had mixed results for Kandi Burruss in the past, the Grammy winner's willing to give it another go. When asked recently by Loop21.com if she'd considering working with Real Housewives of Atlanta co-star NeNe Leakes, Kandi replied, "Actually I would. I wouldn't say we're the best of friends, but I don't consider her an enemy. I said I was pretty much done with working with any reality artists, but just for the fun of it to show what I could do, I would help her if she wanted to."
And she wouldn't exactly be starting from scratch, either. "[NeNe] actually can carry a tune. I'm not saying she's Whitney Houston, but she definitely can carry a tune, and that's all I really need."
For the time being, Kandi's focusing on giving other budding songbirds their wings. "Basically, so many people came up to me every day after I helped Kim on the show saying, 'Oh, if you helped her I know you can help me,'" the Georgia peach explains about the idea behind her upcoming show. "So with The Kandi Factory we're going to take the different people that we choose and help them get a new record, a new image, a new video and turn them into something. And hopefully I can live up to the challenge."
Oh, and Mary J. Blige and Janet Jackson, in case you're reading this, Kandi wants to work with you next. Call her!

Hello Andy, love Atlanta Housewives. My all-time favorite "Housewife" has to be Khandi and I'm learning to love Cindy, especially when she sits down with Miss J..I just can't even believe now NeNe is going to try to sing. Well then I can sing too! Can Khandi work with me to put out a single and I'll have the next Hit song. Please! But I do believe that NeNe does bring the "Drama" to Atlanta Housewives. I also love that the show is accepting of postitive productive working Black Gay men and all the accepting Straight allys & "FairyGodmothers. Thank you as a proud openly Gay African/Caribbean male.
