Kandi Burruss tied the knot in April, but it was not without major (and I mean Mama Joyce) drama. Despite the uphill battle the couple faced, Kandi and Todd Tucker are happy, in love, supportive of each other, and eager to grow both their brands and their union.
Speaking to Ebony, Kandi shares her keys to a fulfilling marriage and gives her tips for making it in business. Since their wedding Kandi reveals that she and Todd have been spending most of their time apart due to work commitments.
"I guess we still don’t feel married yet. We went from seeing each other and being together every day to a long-distance relationship—because he’s in L.A. producing his show, Hollywood Divas, for TV One, so we see each other on the weekends. Sometimes we don’t even get to do that."
Kandi adds, "We make it work through a lot of communication, and we try to see each other as often as possible."
Peter Thomas makes no secret that he feels his charming personality is a major asset to Real Housewives of Atlanta. But he is more than just a pretty face, he reveals his savvy business persona, his long-standing hustle as an industry player, and why featuring positive black relationships on television is so vital.
In a new interview, Peter talks filming RHOA season 6 (yes, Cynthia Baileywill return) and makes some surprising announcements about his new business partner – and he also slams fellow Atlanta reality shows!
“Peter Thomas was Peter Thomas before the Real Housewives of Atlanta. Reality TV didn’t make Cynthia Bailey or Peter Thomas like some of the other people on our show. We were doing big shit before this," Peter quips to Uptown Magazine. "I am certainly not new to the entertainment industry and people in the industry knew me well before my wife became a Real Housewife.” Peter worked behind the scenes in the music and entertainment industry with several big-name players.
On this week's episode of Real Housewives of New York the drama was all about supposed scandals and the gossips that spread them. At the center of some salacious stories was Carole Radziwill, whose ex-boyfriend Russ was accused of sleeping with Sonja Morgan while Carole and Russ were still dating!
Putting her intrepid reporter skills to good use, Carole did some digging and discovered that not only was the story untrue, it was fabricated for a storyline! Ouch! When your own talent is calling you out on making things up, that's not very reality TV, is it reality TV maestros?
I personally have had enough of Mama Joyce to last a lifetime. And hopefully the powers that be at Bravo take my opinion as the gospel of truth and make that a reality. Unfortunately I don't see that happening. #Losers
With Real Housewives of Atlanta's off-the-chart ratings this last season, rumor has it all the ladies will be returning and Bravo will add one newbie to the cast – so who does Mama Joyce want that person to be? “Well, me!” Mama Joyce told Wetpaint. “Maybe not a Housewife, but something! I should have a peach, don’t you think? I think I was a very important part of this last season.”
When one goes about the admirable task of raising money to fund cancer research and puts in the extra mile to turn it in to a fun event for those invited, and then goes so far as to provide the opportunity to shop you think the guests would be occupied enough to just smile and be polite. Unfortunately LuAnn de Lesseps underestimated Aviva Drescher's need for attention. And her ignorance about what churns a woman's appetite! Answer: Her Father!
Unfortunately for our poor friend LuAnn not everyone has read Class With The Countess cover-to-cover. Aviva may have read Carole Radziwill's books but she has certainly skipped an equally important Housewives text – the ultimate guide to good behavior – because the Real Housewives of New York star behaved abominably during LuAnn's luncheon.
First Aviva decided to send text messages advertising her father George's recent three-way with a former Miss USA, and then she proceeded to talk about the inappropriate topic throughout the entire lunch. Luckily Aviva stopped long enough to at least bid on a dress, but she interrupted LuAnn's co-host's speech about her mother's cancer battle to discuss her father's battle with keeping it in his pants. As a result LuAnn is disgusted.
Parents of the Year (something tells me that is the title of an upcoming Kanye Westdelusional rant rap!) After returning from their honeymoon last week, Kim Kardashian and Kanye are back to their busy jobs of… taking more trips!
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians couple just returned from a lavish trip through Prague and Ireland and now they are headed to Punta Mita for another lavish trip at a private home to celebrate Kanye's 37th birthday. How is that not declared a national holiday?
Unfortunately Kimye may be missing something important… daughter North's first birthday. Kim knew there was something she forgot, but she assumed it was a hair appointment. North turns 1 on June 15th, which is this Sunday so hopefully they'll return in time. (They probably will since it's also Father's Day – photo ops!) Honestly I think the most time those two have spent with their child is when they posed for their Vogue cover. However a source tells Us Weekly Kim is planning to have another baby soon. Kim is hoping for a boy.
Is divorce is in the air over at the Parks-Nida residence or is Apollo Nida just giving his two cents about prenups?
A good friend of Todd Tucker's, Apollo says he offered Todd advice during this week's episode of Kandi's Wedding because he believes Todd and Kandi Burrussare equals and started out an on even playing field where business savvy is concerned.
Apollo says Todd was feeling stressed out about several situations from his issues with Mama Joyce to planning the wedding that left him feeling out of control. As a friend, Apollo advised him to stand up for himself. The prenup was one area Apollo had experience with given that he too is always accused of being after his wife's money.
