Back to Atlanta: Kandi Burruss on Season Four of Our Favorite Bravo Series


The Real Housewives of Atlanta is back on Bravo for season four, and we could not be happier. In hopes of getting a little inside scoop about what to expect, we got R&B veteran Kandi Burruss on the phone to try and get her to dish. While she was a bit tight-lipped about what went onwhile the cameras rolled, she did tell us about jumping into country music, her favorite lady on the show, and her new side business that left us blushing.

This is season four of the show, but your third season. How are you enjoying it?

It has its share of drama, but for the most part, I do like being on the show. It has brought a lot of great opportunities for me. The good outweighs the bad.

Which of the ladies would you say you're closest with?

Phaedra. I knew her a little before the show. We hadn't hung out a lot, but when we did she cracked me up. Since the show I've become closer with her and have a mutual respect for her. We're like-minded in a way. She keeps you laughing.

Last season things were tense between you and Kim. Have they cooled at all?

We're cool. We're trying to work through things. We weren't ever not being nice to each other, just not talking as much.

And now you're writing country music, correct?

Yes. It's always been a dream of mine to get into country music. I was brought up on country. It's really nothing but R&B music with a twang. It's real subjects and real life, and people can relate to it, so for me it's the same.

Will you be working on an album during this season of the show?

I'm working with Jodie Messina, writing on her album. I'm not recording my own country album, just writing songs. Working with Jodi turned out good, so you'll get to see that this season.

You also have a side business, which is, well, vibrators...

It's an "adult luxury line," is what I like to call it [laughing]. I have a web show where I talk about sex and relationships, and last year I got invited to be a guest on Dr. Laura Berman's show. When I met her she had these toys out, all her own line. It made sense. I figured she has talkshow about sex, I have a talkshow about sex, so why not? She's actually one of the richest women in Europe from having her line and in-home parties where women buy it. I hope to be doing that, too.

So, like, what kinds do you have?

There are actually a lot of toys out there, but they are mostly marketed toward men. I wanted something that was focused more for women. Something she'd use. I have a very discreet one, so you can keep in your purse. One looks like a makeup compact, another looks like a lipstick, if you saw it. I also have one that vibrates wirelessly to music, which I thought made sense since I'm a music veteran.

This could be a recession proof business it sounds like.

Well, like my mom always says, women are the same at 60 as they are in their 20s or 30s. They want to feel good too!
