About Totally Candy

Totally Candy

Totally Candy is a comedy site for women lampooning celebrities, pop culture, news, chick stuff and everyday absurdity.  We also pluck funny videos, news stories, photos and other silly stuff from the Web to share with you.  We officially launch in September 2016 and hope you’ll stick around ’cause we’re just getting started around here.


Candy Kirby, Founder & Editor-in-ChiefHeadshot-blue

A former television writer and humor columnist for outlets such as Redbook, Nickelodeon, HelloGiggles and Disney, Candy noticed there was a decided lack of comedy sites with a more feminine sensibility (no, she doesn’t mean vagina jokes and a floral background…although she can’t deny that would make a compelling package, as well) — which was her inspiration for creating TotallyCandy.  Candy previously was a professional job hopper in Corporate America, having worked at several top public relations agencies in New York City, as well as in brand management for the Fortune 50 Company, Boeing, in Seal Beach, Calif. She then took the next logical step in her marketing career to become a staff writer for the CBS daytime drama, “The Bold and the Beautiful,” where she penned many scripts featuring prolonged heated stares and countless “Who’s the Daddy?” story lines.

Candy has a Master of Science degree from Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism, just outside of Chicago. Born and raised in another major city, Mechanicsburg, Pa., Candy now resides in Los Angeles with Mr. Candy, their two young kids, and their ridiculously fluffy cats, Lucy, Lola and Larry.

Yes, Candy is her real name. No, she has never been a stripper, prostitute or Scottish Terrier. Can’t believe everything you see in the movies, people. Except that all telephone numbers begin with the digits 555. That’s true.

Candy loves to hear from readers. Feel free to e-mail her at Candy[at]totallycandy[dot]com or call the TotallyCandy hotline at 555-4321.



With a background in both editorial and marketing, Candy and her team are well-positioned to partner with sponsors and collaborate on fun, effective branded content that resonates with women who appreciate humor.  Media kit coming soon…!
