Can Kandi Burruss work her musical magic once again? The “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star is getting her own Bravo special to find out.

Bravo announced Thursday it’s giving the official greenlight to a new special featuring Burruss called “The Kandi Factory.”

The premise of the special will see the Grammy-winning songwriter/reality star mentoring two performers, bringing them to Atlanta to learn Music Stardom 101 from the mistress who turned castmate Kim Zolciak’s single “Tardy for the Party” into something of a phenom. (Zolciak is also reportedly getting her own spinoff show.) Then Kandi and her team of experts will try to turn them into superstars.

“With her breakout personality and straightforward attitude, Bravo fans have grown to love Kandi on ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta’,” says Bravo’s VP of Development Eli Lehrer in a statement. “The Kandi Factory will capture a unique look at her successful music career as Kandi transforms two music hopefuls into the next big pop star.”

“The Kandi Factory” does not yet have an airdate, but the fourth season of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” returns Sunday, Nov. 6 at 10/9c on Bravo.
