If you have never seen RHOA Housewive Kandi Burruss in Concert I truly suggest to her live.  I got trick into going to dinner with a friend of mine where after dinner my friend Butter told me she had a surprise for me.

So we wind up parking on 7th street NW and walk down the street.  I’m thinking we going to re-visit some old stumping grounds in that area.  No we get in front of the Howard Theatre and she pull out these tickets.

I have not been out in ages so when she surprise me YES I boo-hoo like a child. Kandi has a voice that will make you stand up and want to hear more.

This show was truly a wonderful delight and yes if RHOA Kandi Burruss was to ever come back to DC to do a show I will be there.

Real Housewives of Atlanta Kandi Burruss is Finally suing Kim Zolciak Over “Don’t be Tardy For Party”

Now before I start let me just say about  damn Freaking time Kandi has waken up and decided to take action against Kim.

In October, 2010, Burruss explained the situation on a Bravo blog.

I hardly got anything from “Tardy For The Party.” That is the truth. I am not mad about it. I really blame myself, because I didn’t handle my business correctly. The back story is that when we first did the song, I had Vito (the producer that helped me with the music) talk to Kim about how we would get paid. I didn’t want to have that discussion with her because sometimes doing business can make a friendship uncomfortable. We had already signed a publishing split sheet that split the publishing (writer’s royalty) equally between myself, Vito, her daughter, and Ed (the guy who wrote the country version). I totally wrote the version that everyone knows and is for sale all by myself, but since I took the title “Tardy For The Party” from the country version Kim originally had, I wanted to be fair and give Kim’s daughter and Ed something. Okay, I hope y’all are following me. 

When Vito talked to Kim the agreement was supposed to be that we were just going to split all the royalties from the song (not just the publishing royalties) equally. Mind you I wrote it, pulled in the people to get the music done, gave her free studio time, produced her vocals, etc. with no upfront fee. So I thought, “Cool, we can split the royalties equally, and it’s all good.” I didn’t know if the song was going to make money or not, so I definitely didn’t want to charge her all this money upfront not knowing if she would make any. As a friend I wouldn’t do that. If it’s just business I don’t care, but it wasn’t just business.

So when the money first came in, Kim gave me a check of a third of the money she had received at that point. Everything was cool, but then she came back to me a week later saying she was all upset because her attorney said she shouldn’t have to pay me on the overall royalties, and that she should just pay me on part of the publishing royalties. She asked me for her money back. It kind of came off like she felt I was taking advantage of her. So it irritated me. Mind you, even though Kim and Vito verbally agreed to splitting all royalties, we never put that in writing. So I just gave her the money back. She gave me a much smaller check that her lawyer said I should receive, and I never got another check. Period. Even though the song has gained more royalties since then, and another dance version was released that I never received a publishing check from.

As a writer you’re supposed to get paid everytime that song is played on radio and TV. Since I’m on this show, I allowed Real Housewives of Atlanta to play the song for free so that she could fully benefit off of the song getting played multiple times on our show. She doesn’t have a major label pushing her song to radio, so she doesn’t get the same airplay an artist that is on a major label gets. That’s why I said, “If I would have given this song to another artist, I could have made way more money.” Meaning I would have gotten royalties off of record sales, licensing fees from TV, radio airplay royalties, and I would have charged them a fee upfront. But it’s ok, I am not mad. I will write many more songs that I can do that on. Kim just went along with what her lawyer said, which is what you should do in most cases. I should’ve put what our agreement was in writing from the begining so there wouldn’t be any confusion. This situation in no way makes me have ill feelings towards Kim. The money won’t make or break our bond. I just know going forward we have to treat business as business and friendship as friendship
