Intervention Taught America About Candy Finnigan

“Finnigan, a recovering alcoholic from Kansas City, was at the top of the list, but producers worried she looked “too old.” “I got a call the day after I did the mock intervention,” Finnigan tells me. “They said, ‘We didn’t realize you were that old.’ I said you can’t be 17 and sing the blues. If you want somebody who’s 5-foot-10 with big tits and blonde hair, I ain’t it.”

    LOL Candy! I’ll be honest. At first, I didn’t really care for her. She grew on me over the years and I must say, I actually love her now. I am so glad she’s still on the show.

    I love her no nonsense attitude. But, it’s tinged with warmth and care. I would consider it a privilege to ever see her speak. What she did with Sylvia was nothing short of a miracle.
