My 600-Lb Life: Whatever Happened To Brandi And Kandi?

Brandi and Kandi Dreier are twin sisters who received bariatric surgery from Texas-based physician Dr. Younan Nowzaradan (also known as "Dr. Now") and had their experiences with their procedures televised for the TLC reality series "My 600-Lb Life." Both the twins were approved to be operated on by Nowzaradan, but Kandi ran into a significant hurdle when her heart stopped while she was in the intensive care unit (ICU) for treatment of surgical complications (via People).

Luckily, both Brandi and Kandi survived the ordeal. The twins later followed up with People, and Kandi told the magazine that she was doing well, commenting, "There's not been any other setbacks. It's like it didn't even happen." At the time of that interview, Brandi and Kandi were reported to have lost 200 lb. each.

With their medical and personal challenges shown in their episode of "My 600-Lb Life," many fans have wondered what happened to Brandi and Kandi and how the sisters have been doing since they last appeared on TLC.

Brandi and Kandi Dreier are doing well

Even though their recovery appeared uncertain at first, it seems that both Brandi and Kandi Dreier have been doing well since they received their operations from Dr. Nowzaradan. Kandi has shared some of her Facebook posts publicly, including occasional photos of herself and her twin sister posing together (as pictured above). Both sisters are shown to be all smiles, with Kandi writing in her caption, "So blessed to have her as my other half ❤❤❤." In the photograph above, based on Kandi's having tagged her sister, Kandi is the one in the green shirt on the left, while Brandi is in the dark blue shirt on the right.

Since she and Kandi appeared on the follow-up series "My 600-lb Life: Where Are They Now?," Brandi married husband Femi Mark Eijs, whose full surname appears to be Ejioye (via Starcasm). A September 2021 noticem related to dissolved marriages in The Columbian, named Femi Ejioye and Brandi Dreier as having been granted a divorce decree, which suggests that the two are now divorced.

Per her Facebook profile, Kandi is listed as being in a relationship, but she does not share public posts frequently enough to glean much information about her romantic life.

Brandi Dreier is a mother of two

In addition to her marriage and divorce, since appearing on "My 600-lb Life," Brandi Dreier has become the proud mother of two children. She has two daughters by her ex-husband — one born in June 2018 and one born in October 2020 — and is reported to have kept her second pregnancy relatively quiet (via Starcasm).

Although she and her former husband have chosen not to make their children's names known to the public, Brandi's sister Kandi Dreier has referred to her nieces online using the nicknames "Boog" and "Goob," with the latter being the younger of the two (per Facebook). Kandi's nickname that she uses for herself with her sister's children appears to be "TT" or "Titi."

After the birth of her second child, Brandi publicly sought recommendations for a photography studio that could take photos of her family amid the COVID-19 pandemic in order to capture images of her second-born daughter while she was still a baby.
