Kim Zolciak isn’t the only ATL Housewife getting a spinoff show. Kandi Burruss is indeed set to kick off her very own show as well.  And it has just been given the official greenlight from BRAVO.

Last month, single mom Kandi had Bravo cameras in tow at her sex toy line launch in NYC…but they weren’t the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” cameras.  So we figured she was getting her own spinoff.

And today, BRAVO confirmed that they have officially given the greenlight for “The Kandi Factory” starring, of course, Kandi Burruss herself.

The new special will follow “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star and multi-platinum songwriter as she helps other artists reach their musical dreams. Ever since Kandi 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.  So Kandi believes she can turn anyone with raw talent and drive into “something hot” and wants to give aspiring artists a shot at their dream.

According to Bravo, in the special, Kandi 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.  Then Kandi and her team of experts at The Kandi Factory will work with the two contestants in order to turn them into music superstars.

“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.”

Will you be watching?  P.S.  Kandi’s also switching gears with music and focusing on writing country hits for popular artist, JoDee Messina.
