Kandi Burruss wins an award but not quite a Grammy

Kandi Burruss in 2000 received a Grammy co-writing TLC’s hit “No Scrubs.”

Earlier this week, the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” entrepreneur won an award of a different sort: “Best Overall Sex Toy” by Adult Video News. Apparently, this is considered a high honor in the adult entertainment world.

Credit her “Bedroom Kandi” line, featured on “Real Housewives of Atlanta.”

(And yes, this item comes on the heels of that Kim Kardashian item yesterday. I’m digging deep in the dirt!)

Burruss will make appearances this weekend in Oakland (at the Good Vibrations store) and West Hollywood (at The Pleasure Chest.)

She worked with OhMiBod to create a vibrator that moves to the beat of music through an Ipod. The products include toys designed for “discreet travel” as well as special massagers and lubricants.

Burruss’ music career isn’t making her oodles of cash right now. Instead, besides the income from “Real Housewives,” she owns a Smyrna boutique TAGS, recently introduced a new card app called Kandi Koated Spades and operates a sexy online show “Kandi Koated Nights.”

I tried to get Kandi on the phone but she’ s in the middle of doing press today on the West Coast and hasn’t had time to call me.

My girlfriend used the toy while playing the drum solo from The Grateful Dead’s last live album release and ended up in the emergency room.

Well, let’s see, another week end has gone by with yet another hollywood awards (themselves) program. And guess what, this coming week end another awards (themselves) program.
Don’t you people get tired of these self serving awards all the time!

Yes, Hollywood pats themselves on the back. To me it is not a much different than some sports (football). The Oscars are the Superbowl. The Globes and the other various awards are the playoffs. So why shouldn’t they be able to come down to a single winner? Other than The Oscars, most are shorter in length than football. I would rather watch an awards show than a game where players try their hardest to injure players from the other team. The biggest thing that hurts movies and tv shows is words. Either by not being written well or by reviews by critics and audiences. (Yes I know sometimes bad acting can too.)
