Kandi Burruss secured a new spinoff.

Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Kandi Burruss is a veteran of the show. She’s been open about her life on the platform from the beginning. And she’s never shied away from showing the ups and downs of her family life. So it’s no surprise she decided to do the same when it comes to her struggles in the restaurant industry. OLG was actually Todd Tucker’s idea. He figured that he and Kandi could pull off a successful soul food brand with the help of Kandi’s mother and two aunts. So Bravo decided to greenlight a reality show based on OLG. So “Kandi & the Gang” became a reality. And it premiered days ago on the network after the “Real Housewives of Salt Lake City” reunion.

Interestingly enough, fans had a lot to say about the show on social media. Some questioned if it was a good idea for Kandi to be so open about OLG’s challenges. In particular, Kandi has been having a lot of issues with staffing. And some of her employees don’t seem to be the right fit for the roles they have been hired for.

Ratings for “Kandi & the Gang” have been a hot topic on social media.

Then, of course, Kandi and Todd have been receiving criticism on social media for their business choices. During the final few minutes of the season premiere, the restaurant lost power. It was revealed that neither Kandi nor Todd took the necessary steps to secure a power generator. And although it was something they knew they needed to do to prevent outages on busy days, they still didn’t get it done.

Well, the ratings for the season premiere caused a lot of conversations. In fact, many compared the numbers to “Porsha’s Family Matters.” Interestingly enough, some suspect NeNe Leakes may have thrown some shade once the ratings went viral.

  1. Sigh…I like NeNe. But this was so unnecessary. I’m sure she’ll lie and say this wasn’t shade but it obviously was.

  2. People are going to be mad when Kandi’s show gets another season. Bravo loves her and that’s not changing anytime soon. All this hoopla for someone who will always come out on top!

  3. Yeah, “you already know” said the hata who has ZERO shows. Go sit down somewhere and take some time to breathe with your quick fast and in a hurry NEW Boo.

  4. Kandi is one of the most unproblematic people so if you have an issue with her, you’re probably the problem. She showed support to NeNe when Gregg died and NeNe is still being shady because she’s jealous that it’s Kandi that the producers and network love more. NeNe could have had everything she wanted and more from Bravo if she wasn’t so difficult to work with. Liking her can be exhausting at times. She keeps self sabotaging.

  5. I get it people think Kandi is boring but dragging and shading her about these ratings makes absolutely no sense because RHOA was declining in views while Nene and Porsha were still on the show. And Porsha’s spin-off may have done better than the OLG show but it wasn’t a huge hit either if we’re being honest. People are tired of RHOA and they really have to bring it next season because the interest is drying up.

  6. I stopped watching RHOA, RHOP & M2M simply because I don’t like how Black women are being portrayed.
    Sometimes there are good times until someone decides they have to bring an A & B situation to the rest of the alphabet, Always at an event too!
    I love Nene but she kinda cut her own throat publicly. If Andy is racist wouldn’t that have been a concern way before she made the accusation? No because I guess she was the main peach holder and cashing those checks.
    Same goes for Phaedra’s doings using Porsha to get at Kandi. Still don’t understand that move.
    Honestly I thought Nene has moved on totally and forgotten about anything/anybody RHOA. I hope Kandi is unbothered but social media will let anyone that’s interested know.

  7. To be honest, I hope the rest of the season with OLG is much better. When you have a popular restaurant, you shouldn’t have a line around the building with a wait time of over a hour long, that’s a big turn off from coming to this place of business. Also the reviews for both restaurants are horrible. Khandis should expand to a bigger building, with better decor (tables and chairs). This place has been here for several years and they have made some serious money because it is expensive to be soul food. All businesses just about have a backup generator, really?! Ms. millionaire Khandis Burris. Unbelievable..
