Kandi Burruss has made a career out of speaking her mind and being super open about her sexuality, but that doesn't mean that her easygoing attitude hasn't cost her some jobs along the way. During a recent chat with CurlBox, a company offering hair products for curly 'dos, The Real Housewives of Atlanta star revealed that she once lost a major opportunity due to her honest personality.
"Have u gotten any backlash from being so open?," Kandi was asked, to which she responded, "Yes! I have been rejected for something BIG because of it."
Kandi didn't go on to give any details about what this "something BIG" was exactly, but we're guessing it had something to do with a business venture. Really, we think any opportunity that didn't want Kandi to be her true self probably wasn't a very good match for her anyway.
We think it's awesome that Kandi is so comfortable in her own skin and able to freely talk about what makes her tick. Starting her own sex toy line, Bedroom Kandi, has been a huge success, so we definitely think Kandi made the right call when she opted to hold on to who she really is deep down inside without conforming to any expectations from society.
During the same chat, Kandi pondered, "As a black woman I have found that a lot of other black women r afraid to openly discuss sex. Everything is so hush hush."
We're glad Kandi is speaking up!Do you think Kandi is "too open"? Sound off in the comments below!
