RHOA star searching for talent for new show.

on Oct 6, 2011 - The Dish0

Kandi Burruss of the Real Housewives of Atlanta
Stop the music: The Real Housewives of Atlanta's Kandi Burruss is getting her own spinoff! "Its official @Kandi Gets the Green light from @bravotv,'" the Grammy-winning 'Wife tweeted.

So, what will her new show entail? "I'll be doing for people what i did for Kim on our show basically. That's the short answer. :-)" Think you have "Tardy for the Party" chart-topping potential? Kandi's searching for talented singers, 18 and over, to work with her team of producers, song writers, stylists and vocal coaches.

And although she's stepping into Simon Cowell territory, Kandi's not forgetting her RHOA roots. "no i'm not leaving. my new show is about music. totally different from housewives so its cool to do both," she clarified on Twitter

K's fellow Bravolebs are already singing their praises for her latest project. "Congratulations to @kandi on her new show! Great business move!" co-star Cynthia Bailey tweeted. The Real Housewives of New Jersey's Teresa Giudice posted, "Congrats @Kandi on your new show The Kandi Factory! Wanna be a singing star? Kandi can hook you up!"

As for the hardworking single mama, she's appreciative of the well wishes -- and a bit overwhelmed with emotion. "My motto:Dont b comfortable n your success of 2day bcuz thats from your work of the past. What u do 2day will bring success 4 the future!" Kandi tweeted. "Uncontrollable tears just came 2 my eyes right now...Everything n my life is coming 2gether & I'm thankful 2 God & every1 that supports me!"

Want to be part of The Kandi Project? Check out our casting page -- hurry, deadline is October 24.

Hi kandi, I am so proud of you and all you do, well I want to start with ,I am one of the ones who got left behind, I have no talent when it come to singing, but I won't let that stop me, look what you done for kim, but what I do have is i'm funny, yes funny, everyone say I should be in comedy, and I think so, I want to act and I know how to do that or become a comedian, which ever come first, so if you can have a door open for me, that will be great, so if you will think about this, if not I still which U well.....

You are always amazing! Sorry that Sheree is getting you bogged down in the whole holding a baby baloney, but just like you sing, rise above all the haters!!! Cause you are a winner and the best revenge is always, living well!!! XOXOXOXO!!!!

Kandi your class shines through, I love your mom too reminds me of mine. I have a friend that has the most amazing voice her voice is very powerful. $300000 scholarship from pepperdine. I believe in her and I know she is amazing, she does not want to spend the time becoming famous because she goes to nursing school as well. I dont want that voice to go to waste. It is obvious that god has blessed her she needs to use those vocal cords. Help us, you will not regret this decision I promise you.

Both Erika ( first call from casting, I forgot I applied - What a SHOCK ) and Lindsay ( Casting Director ) have made my year. All of the great praise and attention truly leave me feeling blessed. However, now both are onto new projects and have left me with the uneasy " . . . now we wait." Can you PLEASE tell me WHEN we get to find out who is going to be working with Kandi? I'm going crazy over here not knowing - DeAnna
