  • Until the latest episode of Bravo’s “Real Housewives of Atlanta” (RHOA) Kandi Burruss had been relatively low key during season 5.

    As she concentrates on a new relationship with her fiance’ Todd Tucker and decorating her new home, Burruss hasn’t had time to get caught up in the never-ending drama between the “talls and smalls” that seems to be the focus of the program.   But, her manager, Don Juan, noticed her career has been lagging as she puts all of her energy toward her personal life.

    Agreeing that she need to re-focus, the 36-year-old singer/songwriter/producer went back to the studio and unexpectedly laid tracks for a … gospel record!  Don Juan was  understandably taken aback when his client said she wanted to add a gospel song to her next CD.   Although Burruss has been successful making hits for her self and others and has dabbled in other genres (Country and House for instance), the R&B singer’s desire to do a gospel album comes as a surprise because Kandi, a single mom,  is known for speaking candidly about sex. More importantly, she owns a sex toy line (“Bedroom Kandi“) and hosts a sexually oriented web show (“Kandi Koated Knights“), two factors that are not typical of an artist that sings about/for the Lord.

    Apparently, Burruss is looking to make another hit.   The song, entitled “Prayed Up,” features platinum- selling gospel artist Marvin Sapp.  He sings and preaches the gospel.  She sings and sells sex toys. Online comments suggest this collaboration struck a bad chord with the majority of viewers.

    Days after the show aired, on Facebook, Burruss expressed  that she was prepared for disapproval:

      • WELL IF YOU LOVE THAT, I KNOW YOU WILL BE ECSTATIC TO HEAR HOW THE BIBLE SAYS CHRISTIANS SHOULD HANDLE IT. PLEASE PRAY THAT THE HOLY SPIRIT GIVES YOU CLARITY AND THEN READ THE FOLLOWING SCRIPTURES.

        Galatians 6:1 ESV
        Brothers, if anyone is caught in any transgression, you who are spiritual should restore him in a spirit of gentleness. Keep watch on yourself, lest you too be tempted.

        2 Thessalonians 3:15 ESV / 49 helpful votes
        Do not regard him as an enemy, but warn him as a brother.

        2 Timothy 4:2 ESV / 44 helpful votes
        Preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with complete patience and teaching.

        1 Timothy 5:20 ESV / 34 helpful votes
        As for those who persist in sin, rebuke them in the presence of all, so that the rest may stand in fear.

    3. This is totally ridiculous. If she is prayed up or praying at all on a serious note she would realize that God is not into selling sex toys, whatever they are. Jesus on the mainline what is happening to us in this hour. I know the world of God says we need to redeem the time because the days are evil and it is so true. People want to engage in any and everything and say they are christian. Television these days has more evil garbage on then a city dump truck and I choose not to watch it. Let us pray for real, for real~~

    4. Truely it’s a shame to do those things..if you’re prayed up then you’ll know the truth. I’d rather be poor & righteous than be rich playing with sex toys encouraging others to do the same..while singing gospel! No I’m not judging I’m only making a righteous choice…can I get an Amen somebody..probably not..this is Tom Joyner’s website isn’t it? That’s why I Can;t get an Amen..judge me for not doing something & I’ll judge you the same.

      • New International Version (©1984)
        God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
        The opportunity is there for the taken, but many don’t take it because we have to be politically correct and not tell people that God’s word doesn’t change…even if you are wealthy.

        • She wants to straddle the fence with the toys, live in boyfriend, etc., but say she is a Christian. Christian means a follower of Christ. It’s trying to be more like him everyday. She’s going in the opposite direction. Christianity is making Jesus Lord (over) and Savior of your life. He runs you, you don’t run him, you live for him. She is blinded, not meaning harm, but needing correction in love.
