The Kandi Factory - Season 1

via press release:


Guest Stars Include Singer Ruben Studdard and Phaedra Parks

NEW YORK – April 24, 2013 –Bravo Media brings music to your ears with two new episodes of “The Kandi Factory” airing Sunday, April 28 at 10pm and Tuesday, April 30 at 10pm. Immediately following “Married to Medicine” on Sunday, April 28th, there’s a meltdown at the Factory. The team brings Lizzy, a talented 22-year-old singer/songwriter full of potential but with a dark, painful relationship with her mother that has kept her emotionally repressed from her music. Kandi pushes Lizzy to the limit to face her pain and channel it into an emotional ballad. Up against Lizzy is Brandon, a 23-year-old Disney parade performer. He has all the ingredients for stardom, but his lack of ‘flavor’ could keep him marching permanently if Kandi can’t find a way to break his shell. Then, tempers erupt in the studio when Don Vito pushes Selasi’s buttons too far. Phaedra Parks makes a special appearance to help mediate the dispute and whip the team into shape.

Tune in to another tune-filled episode of “The Kandi Factory” on Tuesday, April 30 at 10p.m. when Kandi's team takes on Garrison, a "Soccer Mom" looking 42-year-old administrator with rock star dreams.  But, Garrison’s aspirations become her nightmare as she is forced to confront her deep-seeded fears about sexuality when Kandi writes her a pop anthem titled “The Mighty O” – based on Garrison’s own personal journey with her sexuality. Facing off against Garrison is Kevin, a successful 28-year-old lawyer, eager to become the next R&B sensation. However, Kandi is not fully sold on his swag, and tries to teach him how to “woo” the ladies. The stakes are even higher this week as American Idol winner Ruben Studdard joins for a special guest appearance.

    They’re clearly trying to help boost the ratings with this move. Kandi Factory was been struggling to get decent ratings and it’s probably because there isn’t much “drama” like the other Real Housewives type shows.

  • Sandra Oh

    It’s not an enjoyable show. The “talent” is not talented and the songs are blah. I like Kandi but I’ll pass on the show.

  • Jonathan

    Kandi just doesn’t have the personality to have a show for an hour all about her. She has written good songs in the past tho.

    @Jonathan – I think she does have the personality, but it’s not showcased on The Kandi Factory. If this were to follow her through her engagement, her interactions with her mother, remodeling her house, building her businesses, etc like Don’t Be Tardy or Bethenny Ever After, then I think it could be really great. But the show she’s doing is a singing show, makeover show, and therapy show all rolled into one… not exactly anything fans of the drama and style of the Housewives franchise would necessarily want to watch.
