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
