Kandi Burruss is an American R&B singer-songwriter, record producer and reality television personality best known for winning a Grammy for scoring (with bandmate Tameka "Tiny" Cottle) the TLC No. 1 hit No Scrubs.
On television, she is best known as one of the cast members of the reality show The Real Housewives of Atlanta, since 2009.
She is a former member of the platinum-selling musical group Xscape, who 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's elite.
Kandi's world was turned upside down in 2008 with the death of her former fiancé. Working to rebuild, Kandi is starting to date again and is back in touch with her father who she learns is sick with cancer.
After her Capitol Records deal fell through in 2009, Kandi signed with a new label and is putting together a new album with songs heavily inspired by AJ.
Ever the survivor, Kandi moves forward building a solo career, a love life, and developing a friendship with the other housewives, particularly Kim.
