Attorney Phaedra Parks (of The Real Housewives of Atlanta), Mona Scott Young (producer of Love & Hip-Hop) and Atlanta rapper Rasheeda, all joined Kandi at her Tags Boutique for a live show last Wednesday night (January 11, 2012).
[Sidebar: Young just so happens to be in town casting for Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta – yuup! it’s happnan! I told ya so…]
The topic of the show was ‘Does Love and Hip Hop Work In Relationships’ and Kandi and her crew spoke with the guests about things ranging from relationship woes in the hip-hop music industry to details about the show itself.
ATLien and “Everybody Knows” Phaedra Parks…
It was Kandi’s first show of the new year and it started out with a BANG!
More bhotos + watch the “Love & Hip-Hop” edition of Kandi Koated Nights below…
Co-hosts Nikki-Nicole and DJ -A-One (above) kept the crowd rolling with entertainment news and commentary, while comic Vanessa Fraction, Don P (Trillville), Tammi Faye (Bad Girls Club/Jazze Pha’s baby mama) provided a bit of insight about keeping love alive in an industry where sex sells and groupies give it away for free.
ATLien & Rasheeda
Female rap artist Rasheeda, who has been happily married for years now, spoke about keeping a relationship in tact while facing the temptations of the music industry.
Rasheeda’s husband is also in the music industry, but the two have managed to keep their love alive and have so far avoided all the unnecessary drama that comes along with being in the spotlight.
ATLien Phaedra & Mona Scott Young (Producer of Love & Hip-Hop)
Later in the show, Kandi took questions from the audience and I got the chance to ask Mona Scott Young (Love & Hip-Hop) about last weeks “fight” between Chrissy Lamkin & Yandy Smith. (click HERE if you missed Episode 8 – THE BIG FIGHT)
I dunno if you noticed or not, but during the fight Yandy made a comment to Chrissy like “I used to have YOUR job b*tch!” – I took it to mean that she used to be Jim Jone’s GIRL but Scott said that wasn’t the case, stating that she’s been asked that, but she thought Yandy was referring to Chrissy’s job of “holding Jim down” managing his schedule, handling his money & legal issues, etc. [insert side-eye]
…that is… IF I had one.
Kandi and I are gonna have to work on the “A” sing… *sigh*
Congrats to Kandi, producer Don Vito and the Kandi Koated Nights crew for a successful first show of 2012!

What are YOUR thoughts?
Is it possible for a relationship to survive when it’s under public scrutiny ie reality shows, public figures, etc… ??
