Kandi Burruss Net Worth is $35 million
Real Housewives of Atlanta Salary $550,000 per season
Kandi Burruss joined the cast of Real Housewives of Atlanta during Season 2. She replaced former cast member Deshawn Snow. She entered the series through her friend former star Lisa Wu-Hartwell is also no longer on the show. Before being in the television business Kandi was a big star in the music industry. She began her music career singing with the R&B group Xscape when she was 17. The group featured Tiny who is now married to rapper T.I. and the two have their own series. The group released two albums that both went platinum before separating. She continued releasing music as a solo artist and had her first solo number 1 with Don’t Think I’m Not from her only album Hey Kandi. Her older brother died in a motorcycle accident a few years prior and she dedicated a song to him on the album.
She has become a staple on the series and the longest cast member on the show besides NeNe which is why Kandi is paid $550K per season. The large sum of money was granted to NeNe in season 4 but this time NeNe’s pay has gone to a massive $1 million. We all know Kandi doesn’t need it after she continues to get royalties from her song writing credits totaling an annual salary of $2 million a year. She also gets paid per quarter, 4 times a year, from her songs. But NeNe’s acting career has slowed down since she was cut from Glee and the New Normal was cancelled. It seems Kandi might be the only baller on the series.
She and former member Tiny wrote music for mega group TLC including their biggest single No Scrubs which won Kandi a Grammy for R&B Song of the year. She also wrote music for Alicia Keys debut Album songs in A Minor which sold over 10 million copies worldwide.
Kandi crossed industries and began an overnight internet talk show called Kandi Koated Nights. The show began airing live and featured a few of her celebrity friends. Kandi and her guest discuss relationships, sex, and headline news stories. The show led her to start a sex toy line. The line of toys are sold at high end Hotels retailing for over $100 per item. Her online series became a big hit after being featured on Atlanta Housewives. She is now working with several producers on bringing it to television.
Kandi Burruss is dating Todd Tucker. The two met while filming Housewives. He was a producer for Bravo and he quit his job so that they could begin dating. He is a regular on season 5. But during a new sneak peek of what’s to come in season 6 it doesn’t look like the couple is going to last. Kandi’s mother who can sometimes be a little overbearing claims she heard Todd has been with Kandi’s longtime friend Karmin. Oh gosh!
