About this blog

KB824037

This is a blog about Kandi Barbour who a porn actress and nude model from the late 70’s and early 80’s. She would continue to work as a dancer for several years after her retirement from making movies and modeling.

There are lots of photos, videos and information about Kandi on the internet, but most of the biographical information about her online is apparently incorrect. From where she was born, raised, her apparent birth name and age were all incorrect.

After many years of being out of the public eye, word of her death in January 2012 shocked and saddened many. Even more saddening was the fact she was also homeless at that time and no living relatives could be found to have funeral arrangements for her.

This blog is an attempt to provide a little more insight to Kandi and all of the things related to Kandi above and to correct erroneous info online about her. The info was gleaned from those who knew Kandi and public records detailing some of her later years .

There will be no nude pictures or porn on this blog as that material is readily found all over the net.

  1. Jim South of World Modeling Agency use to call her “Dandy Candy”she reminded me of Delta Burkes character in Designing Women. Immediately I thought Kandi Barbour….what ever happened to that vivacious,raven haired,big busted beauty..?
    Now I know…so sad how models and actresses in that business haven’t been shown any kindnesses and financial gratuities as a thank you for all the gazillions of dollars they have made since legalizing sex on film combined with the Internet.
    I worked with Kandi on many still and movie sets,I did her hair and make-up many times. Diana Hardy did find her first,then she sent her to my boyfriend Bob Veze,who shot her a few times,I did her make-up and hair for most of those shoots. Always energetic, funny,very animated & emotional but seemed troubled at times. Many girls got into this Bizz with self destruction in mind,insecurities and self loathing,desperate for many reasons…money,attention,love…..? So many lovely girls I’ve known and witnessed their destructions…now here’s another one.
    Rest in Peace Kandi,
    Your in my prayers……Laurie Smith

  3. I found the so very sad to hear about Kandi. But to give a little more in site to this sad story. Kandi had work as a feature at Fantasy on Jonestown road in Harrisburg Pa. Gary the owner of the club rented the apartment out to her. Kandi had been staying in the apartment for some time as I remember. In fact she had been staying and working there when I started to dance. She was having many problems on and off even back then. The owner was not the most reputable person he did not look out for her best interest let’s just say that. That was around 1985. There are many of us who remember her very well. She helped me out a lot when I first started. But some how i feel she felt very alone and was depressed. There is a lot that I would be able to add but do not feel as if it should be like this. Those interested may contact me and I will be more than happy to provide any information I can . RIP… Our Dear Kandi. You will be sadly missed and so Dearly rememberd. Much Love….
