BRAVO GREENLIGHTS NEW SPECIAL "THE KANDI FACTORY" STARRING KANDI BURRUSS

Special Follows "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" Star As She Transforms Music Hopefuls Into The Next Big Popstar

NEW YORK - September 29, 2011 - Bravo Media and Kandi Burruss hit a high note as the network announced today it has greenlit "The Kandi Factory," a new special following "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" star and multi-platinum songwriter. Ever since Burruss turned Kim Zolciak's single "Tardy for the Party" into a digital download phenomenon, she has been bombarded by thousands of wannabe artists desperate for her popstar secrets. Burruss believes she can turn anyone with raw talent and drive into "something hot" and wants to give aspiring artists a shot at their dream.

"With her breakout personality and straightforward attitude, Bravo fans have grown to love Kandi on 'The Real Housewives of Atlanta,'" said Eli Lehrer, Vice President of Development for Bravo. "'The Kandi Factory' will capture a unique look at her successful music career as Kandi transforms two music hopefuls into the next big popstar."

In the special, Burruss will give two protégés the opportunity to come to Atlanta and learn the fundamentals of pop music success. She has identified three factors that have to fit perfectly together to create a pop sensation: the song, the look and the performance. Burruss and her team of experts at The Kandi Factory will work with the two contestants in order to turn them into music superstars. Will they listen to Burruss' advice and rise to the occasion or will they bomb?

Burruss is a Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter who resides in Atlanta with her nine-year-old daughter, Riley. She is a former member of the platinum-selling music group Xscape and the recipient of a Grammy for her work on TLC's mega-hit "No Scrubs." She's also switching gears with music and focusing on writing country hits for popular artist, JoDee Messina. Burruss juggles her busy life as a single mom and hard-working career woman, but also finds time to let loose on the Atlanta social scene, stepping out with members of the music industry elite.

Produced by True Entertainment with Steven Weinstock, Glenda Hersh, Mark Ford and Kevin Lopez serving as executive producers.
