OK, on to this last episode. I really want to speak about the Kenya/Stallion Booty vs. Phaedra/Donkey Booty issue, because I got a lot of tweets about this. Some people asked me why I don’t sympathize with Kenya, because they feel it’s like my business situation with Kim in the past. Well it’s nothing like my issue with Kim. Phaedra was going to pay Kenya up front her fee as a producer. Kim never paid me up front for anything. Our agreement was supposed to be an equal split from profits, since she was not paying a producer fee for rights to release the song up front. Once the money came, Kim said she should only have to pay on publishing and not an equal split of all profits. That’s where our disagreement came in. So basically Phaedra and Kenya didn’t have an issue about the producer fee. Their disagreement was that Kenya spoke to some of her connections and was able to get an offer for distribution. Phaedra didn’t ask Kenya to get her a distribution deal from what I understand, and Phaedra did not want to pay Kenya a percentage of royalties on any distribution deal. I don’t disagree with Kenya about wanting a percentage of a deal that she brought to the table, but if you can’t agree on terms, then you take the deal off the table, which is what happened. They agreed it was best not to do the project together.
But after deciding not to work on the project, Kenya just decided to take the idea and do it herself, and that’s the part I disagree with. Even if she had a deal on the table for a workout DVD, why did she have to basically steal the same concept and title of Phaedra’s idea? Kenya could have done a workout DVD that was not focused on the booty, but even if she was going to focus on the booty, why did she use a title so similar to Phaedra’s title? That wasn’t cool to me. Even though Kim and I disagreed on the music, I never tried to record “Tardy for the Club” or “Late for the Date” or “The Ring Means Everything.” Be original! Don’t plagiarize your friend’s or associate’s idea. That doesn’t sit well with me. I would be too mad if someone I talked to about an idea that I’m currently working on just ran with the idea as if it were OK.
I really love the relationship Kandi and Riley have, and I AGREE most people wouldn't understand the struggle of being a single mom, but a woman as well. Do what works for YOU Kandi! Kenya just MAKES me sick, I had to stop watching because I just don't like her personality or her characteristics as a friend. Kenya lost me when she was dogging the models at the Bailey Agency and when trying to be a HOMEWRECKER!
kandi you are such a snobb i dont like you at all you think that your so great fame an money has realy made you think you are all that your butt is too big it looks nasty an im sure its hard to keep clean an dont smell you showed up late a neenee house an was talking sh..t girl please thats y she didnt let you in lol and you cant sing to me sounding like a bird on crack get off the tv show cause your played out fake self yea you need that money you got to be somebody
Kandi, God bless you and your family. Girl do what your heart lead you to. There are people who has all kinds of thoughts, and feeling about your life because u r in the spotlight. But, Girlfriend, you have to "Stay Prayed Up", and follow the Sprit that rest inside you. Be Happy!!! A Fan always. H.W. From Tampa, Florida Congrats to u and Todd. Also, you are my favorite Housewife because you are fair and REAL.
Honey, if there is 1 thing I know for certain in this world, it is that you are a fabulous parent to that girl. I loved the new song and was thrilled to see you making music that moves you. Wishing you nothing but love. (I have "I'll Fly Above" on my Ipod and listen to it all the time when I walk) xo
Kandi God bless you i love the soñg i cried my eyes out, it made my soul happy there is nothing as good as soul gospel i need that..best show ever.keep up the good work, God bless you and the show
Kandi, I'm so glad you are not so "bedroom Kandi" this season.You were really starting to get on my nerves, especially having a young daughter. Also glad that you Mom isn't attending functions with you because when you and Phedra get together.................... Congrat's on your engagement. Sex toy's and Gospel, what a combo!
Kandi, you are an amazing daughter, mother, fiance, and friend. Your the only woman in the group thats level headed, smart, and has real talent. Keep up the good work!
Kandi, saw your comments justifying doing a gospel song. There is no need to justify anything that you do. None of us are sin free. Christians seem to forget that we aren't sinless, we sin less (some of us anyway). Keep doing you. There is NO ONE that can or should judge you. Thank you for the song, I pray that it ministers to someone's spirit, that lives be changed through it.
Your Sister in Christ,
@carcynlee yes we all have sinned and come short of God glory Kandi thanks for that song it touched my soul i cried my eyes out and to see your Dad cry made my heart happy May GOD give you more songs like that, i needed that keep up the great work, hurry up and put it where we can get it.. your Dad is good looking and his voice wow do he sing? ...all the ladies here fell in love with your dad..
I want to congratulate Kandi on her engagement. Kandi is a smart young woman. I'm going to trust her to know her circumstances and make the right and best decision for herself and her daughter. She has done a grest job shielding her daughter form the RHOA drama. We've seen her sparingly. I like the idea of a calaboration with Marvin Sapp. Kandi's talents makes her capable of dabbling in any genre. She dabbled in Country Music during another season. She has definitely proven herself to be a talented lyricist. I like that she tries different things and doesn't put herself in a box. It was nice seeing her dad on the show. It was that much more special because of their past. Kandi is showing us who she is as a person. I wish her nothing but success and happiness. ms. Burruss keeps it real most of the time. I hope she continues to be who she is and lay it on the line on an as needed basis.
Love that your doing a Gospel song with my fav. Marvin Sapp. Love to see your dad and hope you two will have a great relationship from now on!!
Kandi: Congratulations on your engagement. I am a new fan of RHOA. I didn't think I'd relate, but I find many of you to be the most likeable of all the housewives, and I like you the most. You and your mother are real class acts. I was so moved by your new single. I don't know anything about gospel music but I would totally buy this.
Hi Kandi, I just want to say i seen the show with your dad and you singn to God. It brought tears to my eyes. I watch all the house wives shows and out of all of them you can tell you are the only one with any sense ,lol. Seriously that song will bless you cause it came from your heart. God knows our hearts. I use to be a biker chic on drugs. Now I clean houses for filthy rich people .I have turned my life 100 percent over to God. I am so blessed and it is cause I am a good person always have been and I see you have always been .I love your new Gospel song congrads gonna be big. Praise the Lord.
Kandi, do you really think that it's a good idea for you and Todd to live together while your daughter is an impressionable young girl? I don't have a problem with people living together without being married, but when there is a child involved, things have to be done differently.
I am so happy for you. I agree on the pre-nup thing. You always kept it real. Loved your singing. You caugh good one this tie. I know your other love was taking from you but he is i heaven and He will approved for you.
Loving the Gospel!
Congratulations and Best Wishes on your engagement. He really seems like an awesome guy.
Hello Kandi: I'd like to CONGRATULATE you and your fiancée on your engagement. May God bless the both you to always just see each other and no one else in your relationship. Please do not use any examples from your fellow cast members and their marriages. Just allow God to be an intricate part of your love, devotion and respect for each other. Build your life together independent of any outside influences. Keep your business to yourself and you will keep busy-bodies out of your business! I just soooo appreciate your down to earth personality. You are totally in touch with reality and have been an example of NOT letting success change your head and direction. You are by far a keeper..... I wish you well and pray that God will continue to richly bless and anoint your life.
Just wanted to say that you are my FAVORITE housewife, well you and NeNe are tied anyway, but that's only because she has CHANGED so much! In my mind anyway I think that you have grown to love her as well, and is also a good indicator of WHY your my favorite housewife. I mean honestly, if someone can get a grip and move on with their life and their attitude we are the same type of person (I'm assuming here, cause obviously I do not know you like that) that says OKAY, whatever I like who you have EVOLVED to becoome :) Anyway, all I'm truly trying to say is that you are my favorite, hard working single mom on the show!
I am so absolutely delighted with your engagement and believe that you have EARNED and DESERVE happiness so much so that I'd stick my neck out there and say, I'm almost positive you and Todd will be extremely happy and blessed! He seems to be a GREAT young man as well!
You have done so well with your daughter that I'm confident she will adjust fine to the changes coming in her life, which I'm sure you have minimized!
Love you, from a T.V. screen :)
I only registered here today to comment on Kendra's blog, and let me tell you...I am NOT a FAN!!! I really wouldn't waste my time as a single mom working 40+ a week here in Tennessee- but, I am pretty sure that because I'm from the South, I GET IT! LOL Regardless, I do NOT get that heiffer!
Anyway, I could not go through the trouble of registering and all that B.S. without hitting you up! Hey! If you ever need assistance with your BLOG, I have MAD writing skills, and a seriouse understanding of P.R. sooooo just hit me up! I'd love the same opportunity as you ladies have had to take care of my family, yet be at home holding down the fort as well! my email is Shell0169@hotmail.com
Love you, Love your MUSIC and love your Spinal Fortitude and PASSION!!!!
Hi Kandi, Congratulations on your engagement. I wholeheartedly agree with the prenup. May I use this opportunity to address something that bothers me each episode I watch the show?Though this may not be read by you, I feel compelled to get it off my chest. Ready...here goes...Would you please hire a landscape company to trim your shrubs and sod your yard. Hopefully this will occur by next season. Your huge yard lacks flowers and diminishes the home's beauty. The camera man shoots from the bottom of the hill and it looks a HOT mess. Next, can we hire an interior decorator? Please don't have us revisit your home next season and it looks a hot empty mess. No, we CAN NOT do it ourselves. Have you not watched the other housewives shows. Atlanta Housewives homes are EMBARASSING!!! no pictures on the wall, no accent rugs, cheap furniture, EMPTY KITCHENS (no decanters filled with food). Always preparing their own foods; it's ridiculous, and poor Phaedra won't even let us in her pathetic looking home. Quit bragging about your house being paid for, yet living like a pauper. Come on I'm looking for better next season.
@reginagarvin never mind Kandi I got this one, I am sure Kandi thanks you for the love however you won't be missed in the line at the music store were ppl for along time have thought she was a talented and gifted artist and SINGER. But good lord home girl has been cashing royalty checks for awhile hmmm. Maybe a ear nose and throat specialist is in your future lmao!
I'm not an expert or a gospel fan but I think Kandi is truly talented and I like her twist on the gospel music.
Congratulations on your engagement and that things seem to really be going well for you. I like to see happy endings. God bless you and yours and I'm looking forward to hearing your gospel song. Blessings to you!!
Kandi sing your heart out I love you can't wait for the Gospel songs and you are beautiful lots of luck and joy
Kandi!! I've always thought you're way too put together to be on a drama filled reality tv show! and I just heard a preview of your new music..... YOU GO GURL - gospel, gospel, gospel. I'll be one of the first to purchase... show your glory and let it shine... following you!! Congratulations on your engagement!! xx happiness and blessings to you!
Why do you care about the DVD ??? None of your business . You sure have become a sneaky person. Spreading gossip all the way around.
Congratulations Kandi on your impending nuptials. I hope you are as happy in your marriage as my husband and I have been for almost 23 years. I have to admit that of all the housewives of RHOA, your demeanor has garnered my respect. I do not know why the women of RHOA have not expended more effort in trying to earn your friendship. I sincerely wish you the best in all your future endeavors.
Kandi, you've truly grown on me as one of the housewives... Unfortunately I've dismissed Cynthia because she has changed into a two faced female and I don't like her new
Hi Kandi! You have always been my favorite housewife. Congrats on your engagement! My daughter and I met you about a year ago in Georgia when we lived there. You were signing autographs outside of a store. Even though you had tons of people to meet, you were so approachable and kind. I have the picture of the you, my daughter and me from that day, and I framed it. Thanks for being such a kind person. Also, congratulations on your sex toy business doing so well!
HI KANDI CONGRATS ON YOUR ENGAGMENT ATLEAST THIS IS A TRUE COUPLE!!! NENE GETTING A DIVORCE JUST SO SHE CAN GET MARRIED ON TV IS THE MOST RIDULOUS THING I EVER HEARD OF.DONT NOBODY WANT TO SEE HER AND HER OLD ASS MAN GET REMARRIED JUST FOR THE FREE WEDDING AND THE MONEY SHES MADE A MOCHERY OF MARRIAGE AND SHE NEVER STOPS TALKING ABOUT "OH IM ON GLEE" OR "IM SO TIRED TODAY I WORKED ON MY SHOW ALL DAY"LETTING EVERYBODY KNOW SHES ON SOMETHING DONT FORGET ABOUT IT NOW. IF SHES GONNA BE AN ACTRESS SHE NEEDS TO "ACT" LIKE ONE ALL THE OTHER ACTRESS AND ACTORS OUT THERE DONT TELL US TIME AND TIME AGAIN "OH IVE BEEN WORKING ALL DAY" JUST SHUT UP ALREADY NENE!!! AND ANDY YOU REALLY FELL FOR HER BULLSHIT DIVORCE DRAMA? HOPEFULLY NOBODY WATCHES HER SHOW AND IT WILL BE A TOTAL FLOP!!!
Congratulations on your engagement Kandi! I only have 1 concern; why are YOU so concerned about the DVD drama?! Kenya and Phaedra are not "friends". Kenya just joined the cast, so why are you acting so surprised that they're both acting this way toward each other? When Kenya first started talking about Cynthia, Phaedra claimed "love: her then. Phaedra is a genuine person..period! Call Kenya what you want, but at least she's transparent! Stay out of the drama..remember your song :Rise above it"..Your in something that has NOTHING to do with you!
How the heck did you tell kenya she should have known better than to not have her paperwork together with Phaedra, when you didn't have your paperwork together with Kim.
Kandi, congratulations! You deserve happiness, peace and love. Somehow, with great humor, you are able to stay out of the drama and at the same time be honest and direct. The world is lucky to have you!
I'm so happy for you Kandi! Love you on he show..you keep it real. Best of luck to you & Todd & Riley! Such a lovely family!
Kandi, I am so elated for you...You and Todd make such a nice couple...As for the wedding, my suggestion is to have a small wedding only with family and then one hellofa big reception. Lord know you throw a great party and then you can relax at the reception and not be all nervous and such...God Bless you and your family, lots of luck to you
Congrats Kandi, very happy for you and Todd.... Forget the haters. Also, It's good to see you and NeNe talking.
Both you and NeNe are great role models. Keep up the great work.
Congratulations Kandi, you should think about a small intimate wedding on a romantic quaint Island or a beautiful spot in South Africa and have the reception in Atlanta. I wish you and your family much happiness, you deserve it. You are one of my favorites on the show, stay grounded. A prenuptial is essential in your case, be safe not sorry..
Congrats Kandi, you have always been one of my favs because your are an accomplished business woman and you tell it like it is. I'm 100% with you on prenups. Anyone that has major assets in this day in age, who want to act like its all butterflies and unicorns when it comes to love are just fools. You can't not predict future behavior. We have life insurance, health insurance, car insurance. Why the hell would you want look out for each others best insterests while yall are "in love" and maturely discuss the 'what ifs".
Congratulations Kandi. Let haters hate. It is what they do best. You should not care what Wendy Williams or others have negatively to say. I know words do hurt but like Jay Z says in his song, you gotta get that dirt off your shoulders honey and keep enjoying living your life. You and Riley and Todd have so much to look forward to. You were always good enough as so many other black women are and I am very glad that you did not settle. I know you loved AJ but I believe Todd is what was in store all along.
