Kandi Burruss was in the Bravo clubhouse tonight to chat up Andy and answer questions from viewers about tonight's episode of Kandi's Wedding. They talk strippers, prenups, unruly mothers and the possibility of babies.
They dive right in and get to the subject of the clause in the prenup that says Todd Tucker gets nothing in the event of Kandi's death. "Well there were a couple of extra things in there. Maybe one or two. But I removed that. My thing was, overall, there was nothing major that we couldn't just change – like the one or two things that he said was a real problem. The only things his lawyer kept saying were things that were financial. And I'm like 'you and I already discussed this. We were supposed to be on the same page.' What is he talking about?"
Did anything she saw at Todd's bachelor party upset her? "No. Stuff like that doesn't bother me. I know some women have a problem with the stripper thing, but we're in Atlanta, that's normal."
How does Riley feel about the Todd/Mama Joyce situation? "Riley doesn't put much thought into it. She was totally supportive of me moving forward."
A caller asks Kandi if she thinks she should have a conversation with Mama Joyce about respecting her marriage and if she can't agree to it, ban her from the house? "My mother and I always have conversations. People think that I don't say anything and that's not true. I say things all the time. She doesn't always receive it." She adds, "the argument last week between my mom and his mom was because I did not allow her to come to the house one time when I felt she was going to come over and make Todd uncomfortable. So she's been holding a grudge ever since."
Andy asks if there was a point when Kandi just thought 'I can't do this anymore, I'm gonna have to shut you out of this completely'? Kandi shares, "We go through those moments all the time. And we stop talking for days at a time. Like right now we haven't been talking for a couple days. Something about my dad. It gets to be petty sometimes, so we just need a break."
Kandi adds, "Regardless of what is said, she never sees her part in the situation. She always makes it seem like I'm just wrong. So we'll go days until I call."
Why did Kandi wait two days before the wedding for Todd to sign the prenup? "Todd and I had been talking about the prenup and my attorney had been telling him to get in touch with an attorney. Todd didn't even get an attorney until two days before the wedding. I don't want to put anything on it like it's his fault. It's both of our faults." Kandi says her attorney had wanted to get with Todd's attorney a week or more before when she was doing the rough draft but he didn't want to get an attorney until the final copy was done.
Andy asks her how she would handle it if Sharon didn't like her as much as Mama Joyce dislikes Todd. "I don't think I'd handle it as well as Todd. Todd is really good at staying cool, staying calm. I would always try to be respectful of anybody's mom just like I am with my own mom and I love his mother. But then if someone kept saying things constantly, I don't know. I can't say. "
A caller asked about the prenup house wording – that Todd would have to move out in 30 days – what if he wanted the house? Kandi says he's not trying to get the house, he doesn't want it. "When you get divorced it can get dragged out. I was talking to Bethenny recently and she was saying how she hated the fact that – she had a prenup – but they didn't have any term where he had to get out, so they were still in the same house. That's why attorney's try to put those stipulations in. "
Andy brings up that he learned recently that Kandi and Ramona Singer are good buddies and keep in touch. He says they seem like an unlikely duo. "Since I first met her a long time ago, we exchanged information and she actually kept in touch over the years. You run into others and say 'oh let me get your number' and you don't really call them, but she does."
Will Sharon and Mama Joyce ever get along? "I hope so, one day. Todd's mom is really upset right now. She doesn't like the things my mom said about her on the show." She said Sharon didn't know what Mama Joyce said until the show started airing. "She's really upset about it."
Andy asks why Kandi only told Todd about some of what Joyce said. "I know this is horrible, but when my mother was talking about the situations, the only part that clicked to me is what she said about his father. " Andy says "not about the mother?" Kandi says "In my mind, they both said things about each other. His mama said things, too. First let me say that's not true about Todd's mom. When my mom said it, I just felt like his dad wasn't here to defend himself. So, when she said it, that's what stood out to me. And a lot of times my mom and go back and forth and it just goes in one ear and out the other. I don't hold on to any of that."
On having kids she says they're not trying, but they're not not trying. If it happens, it happens.
Kandi then admits that if Todd was the one with the money, Mama Joyce would not treat him the way she does.
