RHOA’s Kandi Burruss Describes the Stupidity of Living the Glamorous Life

by Dr. Boyce Watkins

Just the other day, we wrote on FJT about Phaedra Parks, star of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, whose husband, Apollo Nida, http://financialjuneteenth.com/real-housewives-star-phaedra-parks-husband-arrested-for-identity-theft/" rel="nofollow - was recently arrested on charges of bank fraud and identity theft.   That led to an interesting Financial Lovemaking conversation about the importance of choosing a financially-responsible mate, and also avoiding the trappings of financial gluttony.

Another RHOA star, Kandi Burruss, offers a different perspective.    During an interview on the Hot 97 Morning Show, Burruss explained that being a reality TV star is not as financially rewarding as some might think.  She also used it as a way to explain why she works to live below her means.  Here’s what she had to say, according to Madamnoire.com:

“On a new reality show they’re not making anything,” she said. “If they are getting anything, it may be like $2,500 per episode to $5,000, at the most. Most times, like say for instance the women who started out on our show, in the beginning they didn’t get anything for that first year. They got like $5,000 for the whole season just for the use of their house. When I first came on they didn’t really hardly pay me anything either. A lot of those shows do not pay a lot of money.”

Kandi mentions that anyone thinking about going into reality TV should be sure to have something to promote during their appearance.  She says that the show is more like an infomercial than anything.  I’ve heard the same things behind closed doors.  Often, reality TV shows are short-lived and aren’t very well compensated.  But people who don’t understand business become excited about the idea of being on TV without having any kind of plan for long-term financial stability.  This can be a recipe for disaster.

“This is what I always tell people: Don’t go on the show thinking you’re going to make a big lick off of the salary. Think of it more so as your infomercial. How are you going to make this show sell your business or your product. If not, you’re just going on there to make a a** of yourself.”

Kandi also said that her mother gave her a great foundation on the importance of keeping your budget in check and living below your means.  She says that just because times are good, that doesn’t mean you should live high on the hog and set yourself up for financial failure.

“I was looking at financial books and everything since I was a teenager because my mom was always, ‘Don’t put your eggs in one basket.’ And I didn’t go to college, so you get kind of scared like, ‘Okay, I’m getting all of this money right now, but what I am gonna do now?’ I didn’t want to put myself in a position where I was living so expensively that if something happened next year or two years from now and I wasn’t making the same money, I couldn’t afford my lifestyle. So that’s the first thing, you gotta live below your means.”

“Let’s say for instance if you’re just starting out, it’s some people who can afford $1,000 apartment and go get a $1,000 apartment. That would not be me. If I can afford a $1,000 apartment, I’m going to try to find a $600 apartment and save the $400 towards something I want to invest in. A lot of people handicap themselves from being able to go after their dreams because of the kind of lifestyle they  become accustomed to.”

Financial Juneteenth lessons from this story:

1) The words “rich” and “famous” don’t always go hand-in-hand.  The worst thing in the world is to be famous and have everyone think you have more money than you actually have.  This happens a lot for entertainers who have no understanding of business models.

2) Conservatism is the key to financial survival:  Unfortunately, materialistic culture promoted through music and movies promotes the opposite, leaving us looking really stupid later on down the line.

3) You must be your own business and brand in this ever-changing economic landscape:  Even if someone gives you a job, always find a way to create your own job. Kandi seems to get this, and that’s why I am proud of her.

This is why I LOVE Kandi. This is practical wisdom that I almost never hear about especially from the entertainment world. She doesn't put on for nobody and only does what makes sense for her and her family. Riley is def getting that sound background that a lot of black kids don't, or maybe kids period I dunno.

I doubt it
She rents, Kandi pays cash
Kandi has a lot of song writing credits and business ventures

Nene was on one season of a scripted show
And a guest on another
She hasn't booked any other acting gigs

I barely watched that show (didn't have the channel) but she did strike me as the friendliest and most down to earth of all the bunch. I admire people who manage to achieve all the while remaining humble. It's uncommon out there.

Kandi stay being messy in a nice/nasty sort of way, Todd ain't signing nothing but checks made out to cash into his account.

The Luxury home market in the Metro Atlanta area has been on a steady decline for the past few years. Only recently, has it began to stabilize and tick up. Renting could've been in their best financial interest at the time.

ETA - Remember, Kandy bought a fixer-upper and had the resources an another residence to reside in while she put equity into it.

Yea 8k sq ft is insane for a single person, but who knows, it could one of those deals where the rent is really cheap so the house is lived in and full of furniture to show potential buyers. You just never know what the actual deal is.

Love kandi.
1 mil is easy to blow though after paying the tax man, agents, buying all designer everything, luxury cars, etc. . At the end if the day It's not about how much money you make, it's about how much money you keep.

I know people making 75k, whose net worth is more than a lot of people making double because they don't participate in the luxury goods market.

I think Kandi is the only financially stable one in the group.  How is renting a home in your 40s an option unless you have no other choice.  They all seem to love that lifestyle.  Like, Kenya renting a home at 43, but parking a Bentley in her driveway supposedly given to her by her rich African boyfriend.  If I was 43, and dating a rich African guy, I would have a house paid for in cash and a baby to show for it.

Well she's 43 and says she desperately wants to have a child, so tell your dude to keep the car and give you sperm instead.  I don't understand her priorities.

Also, at 43 you can't be holding on for the ring.  You only have so many eggs left.  Getting both is ideal, but you have to be realistic.

yep that sex toy line has raked in some serious coin. and she went straight to the masses to sell it, put up the release party on twitter and errbody n their mama showed up coz they knew they would be on tv. Nene and the other dumb housewives were thumbing their noses talmbout "how dare Kandi invite us to a Twitter party, da hail?!" well duh, that's who's gon buy the product, no middle man necessary...and i think only Phaedra bought some toys that night, the other cast members wanted their freebies Sleepy

Great advice Kandi. I refuse to believe Nene is worth anywhere near 10 million. All she cares about is luxury goods and I don't think she cares about saving her money. She only cares about flossing it

The bently could be kenyas. Getting loans is way too easy. When I graduated college I think I came out making like 60k. I decided I needed a new car so I applied for a loan. So here I am 23 year old, I had perfect credit, but still, they pre approved me for a loan up to 45k at a 5% interest rate. I couldn't believe it.

At the end of the day I only financed 17k. My next car I decided I was gonna pay for in cash. Like kandi. My momma didn't raise no fool.

Please explain. IMO, its seems like the people who can afford it the least are the ones purchasing/renting luxury items/homes.

I dunno about renting homes, but
you think the people who are saving income tax returns, refund checks, and child support have enough or buy often enough to keep the companies open?

I know what he was saying
I'm saying it's not true

But people like to believe white I mean rich people don't spend as much on frivolous luxury and I will let the myth continue if it helps them sleep at night

I think the point is, it's a little more prevalent in our community due to a myriad of social an economical sub issues.

i don't know about all the comparisons on rich vs. poor spending habits i think the main point that kandi is getting at is that it's the that people who live below their means to come out on top regardless of income. 
as your income grows, your ability to buy things grow. rich people buy luxury goods all the time, but those items are like a fraction of their income, they are not having to wait until their check comes or put checks together to pay for those items.

It look like they left them 2 chairs, that deer and said we will be back.
