Revenue and Assets
As a musician, Burruss amassed a substantial fortune. She has a worldwide record sales total of over 7 million thanks to her debut album with Xscape. When she struck out on her own, she did well financially, too.
She won a Grammy for her work on the No Scrubs soundtrack for TLC. Reality television has become her primary source of income at the present time.
Reality Blurb claims that she makes $2.3 million per season for her role on RHOA. Kandi bolsters her salary with side gigs in the media and the business world. Because of this, she has the highest estimated net worth of any Housewife on the show at $30 million.
History and Development
On May 17, 1976, in College Park, Georgia, Kandi Lenice Burruss entered the world. Patrick, her older brother, was only 22 when he died in a vehicle crash in 1991. She finished high school at East Point, Georgia, a suburb of Atlanta, at Tri-Cities Performing Arts High School.
At the age of 15, she made her television debut on BET’s “Teen Summit.” She joined Xscape alongside Tamika and LaTocha Scott and Tameka “Tiny Cottle” while still in high school.
Jermaine Dupri brought them to his label, So So Def Recordings. The year that Kandi finished secondary school was 1994.
When Xscape released their debut album, “Hummin’ Comin’ at ‘Cha,” in the fall of 1993, Kandi was a senior in high school. It had two singles that reached the top 10 on the R&B charts, and it peaked at #3.
The year 1995 saw the release of “Off the Hook,” Xscape’s second studio album. Their final album, “Traces of My Lipstick,” was published in 1998. LaTocha Scott decided to pursue a solo career after the release of the group’s third album.
The foursome reunited soon after, with members contributing to the soundtracks of “Hardball” and “Big Momma’s House.” After then, Xscape didn’t return until 2005.
Burruss has found fame as a songwriter as well. She penned Destiny’s Childs’s “Bug a Boo,” “Bills, Bills, Bills,” and “The Writings on the Wall,” as well as TLC’s “No Scrubs.” She’s also a songwriter, having collaborated with the likes of Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Alicia Keys, Pink, and Usher.
Kandi Burruss’s debut solo album titled simply “Hey Kandi,” was published in the year 2000. Singles “Don’t Think I’m Not” and “Cheatin’ on me” were released from the album. Her 2010 effort, “Kandi Koated,” was her second studio recording release.
Kandi is not only the CEO of Kandi Koated Entertainment but also the founder of her own record label. These luxury sex toys for ladies can be used as cosmetics on the go and then reconverted into fun playthings.
She hopes to one day have Bedroom Kandi, which sells lingerie, lotions, body sprays, candles, and sex toys, be as successful as Victoria’s Secret.
Riley Burruss was born to ex-couple Kandi Burruss and Russell “Block” Spencer in 2002. After only a few months of dating, Burruss proposed to Ashley “A.J.” Jewell in early 2009. On October 9, 2009, Jewell was slain after a confrontation outside of a strip club.
In January 2013, Burruss announced her engagement to Todd Tucker, a former line producer on “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.” While filming Season 4 in 2011, the two began dating. They tied the knot back in April 2014.
Ace Burress Tucker, born to Burress and Tucker in January 2016, is a happy addition to the family. A surrogate delivered their daughter Blaze in November of 2019.
The 2020 coronavirus pandemic saw Riley Burruss’s high school graduation, and her mother posted images of the event on social media. Riley is one of the many promising young minds that will be joining the NYU class of 2024 in the upcoming autumn of 2020.
For some reason, “The Chi” is her favorite show on TV. Joyce and Reverend Titus Burruss, Kandi’s biological parents, have split up. Her father, Titus, explained why he and Kandi’s mother, Joyce, split up in the lead-up to their 2014 wedding.
Joyce allegedly kicked him out because he was smoking and drinking excessively. If you ask Kandi’s mother, he cheated on her, she says. He called that false. After a long day at the office, he returned home to find the locks had been jimmied.
He said that he was forbidden from seeing Kandi because her mother had filed a restraining order against him.
After Kandi posted a photo of herself, her mother Joyce, and their children Ace and Blaze on Instagram in the summer of 2020, the image went viral.
