Kandi Burruss fiance

kandi-burruss

When Kandi Burruss first joined the cast of the Atlanta Housewives, no one knew what to expect from this newbie. Throughout all the drama, Kandi has managed to keep her cool in dealing with love, life and drama. During the season, Kandi got along with all the housewives’ except NeNe Leakes. However, in the interview with ESSENCE, she reveals that she and NeNe are cool. The Grammy-winning singer and songwriter also talks about her upcoming album.

Below are excerpts from Kandi’s interview with ESSENCE:

ESSENCE.COM: Now that the reunion show is upon us, do you feel you and NeNe had any resolve?
KANDI BURRUSS:
I didn’t really need any resolve. I feel the argument between her and me was so petty. I’m one of those who believes if it’s nothing and she’s cool with me then I’m good too, so let’s keep it moving. I would say that during the cast’s last trip to L.A. we pretty much got along, and I was thinking, okay, she’s cool again. Fine, then let’s be cool.

ESSENCE.COM: Before your fiance’s untimely passing he gave one interview and shared his thoughts about your mom. How’d you feel about what he said?
BURRUSS:
I was pretty upset and not feeling too tough about parts of it because it wasn’t necessary. He said that she needs a man, but he tried to hook my mother up with some married guy. I asked him if he was married and A.J. told me no. The first time my mother and this man met, they had a conversation and he told her that he wanted to be honest with her and admitted that he was married, so they never dated or saw each other after that. My mom was angry and called to tell me, and I was like, wel,l I didn’t know. But I try not to harp on that because he’s no longer here, but that was my gut reaction when I read the article.

ESSENCE.COM: Congrats on releasing your EP of your upcoming album, “B.L.O.G.” (B—— Love Online Gossip). Have you been inspired to write a song in memory of A.J.?
BURRUSS:
On the EP there’s a song on I’d written earlier on A.J. and my relationship called “I Just Know.” It really could be a wedding song it’s so beautiful and it fit the best point of our relationship. So my holding the release of my album isn’t so much because I want to add songs as a tribute, but it’s too much going on right now and instead of making rush decisions I was like, Let me just slow down after experiencing two deaths back-to-back. Again, this EP will just give my fans a taste of what’s to come on my album.

ESSENCE.COM: Well, we can’t wait after knowing the magic you worked on Kim’s single “Tardy for the Party.” Is there anything you’d like to say in parting?
BURRUSS:
I just want to thank everyone for showing so much love and support over these last few weeks, especially those who sent me Twitter messages. Although I wasn’t replying, I really did appreciate them. Every time I got teary-eyed I’d read those messages and they would make me feel better. I don’t know why the kind thought of strangers lifts you up, but they did and I’m so grateful for that kindness.


Kandi Burruss with ex-fiance AJ Jewel

Tragedy besieges upon Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Kandi Burruss as her ex-fiance, A.J. Jewel has died.

Police confirmed Friday night that Kandi’s ex-fiance A.J. Jewell was killed at an Atlanta night club, reports MyFoxAtlanta.

There are currently no suspects in custody.

Kandi updated her Twitter status with the following 3 hours ago -

“I could never n a million years imagine this happening. please pray for AJ’s children. that’s who im the most concerned 4. Im just in one of those moods where i dont wanna talk, i dont wanna b held & told its gonna b ok. i just wanna cry myself 2 sleep, alone.”

Our deepest condolences go out to Kandi and AJ’s family.

UPDATE – Atlanta police spokesman James Polite says Fredrick Richardson has been arrested and charged with voluntary manslaughter in the death of Ashley “A.J.” Jewell. Richardson was hospitalized after the alleged fight and will be taken into custody once he is released.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Kandi Burruss has found herself in a hard spot. Between the blogosphere and her mother, Kandi can’t seem to catch a break from all the disapproval surrounding her engagement to AJ Jewel. The disapproval stems from AJ being the father of 6 kids by 4 different women. Kandi’s harshest critic also happened to be her mother, who was very open about her non acceptance of AJ.

In a recent interview with ESSENCE.com, she answers some important questions- whether her mom has finally accepted AJ, If she and AJ have a future together and why she is raising three girls instead of one. She also reveals that AJ was previously married to one of the mother of his kids.

Below are some excerpts from the interview-

Throughout the show your mom has expressed her discontent with your fiancé. Does she still feel the same?
Yes, but what people don’t realize is that my mom’s [disapproval] happened before the show. When she feels strongly about something she won’t answer my calls and she gets very dry and everything. My mother has been overbearing since my brother died in a car accident in Mexico when he was 15. He told my mom he was going to Florida with a cousin and instead he was in Mexico and I don’t believe my mom has ever forgiven my cousin. Ever since that happened she became extremely over protective of me and when I got my first record deal at 16 even more so.

Speaking of which, inquiring minds want to know what exactly does AJ do for a living?
AJ over time has done a lot of things, including running this collection agency while we were together and he just recently bought into this strip club.

Hold up. Did you just say you and AJ are no longer together?
(Laughs.) We’re on hiatus. He’s a great guy and he’s not the type to sit on his behind like a scrub, so it has nothing to do with that. Yes, he has a lot of children, and yes, I didn’t know about them all at first but I got over it because as long as you handle your responsibility and spend time with your children it’s not an issue for me. Another thing I want to set the record straight on is that AJ was married before. A lot of people make comments like, if he didn’t marry his other children’s mothers then why do you think he’s going to marry you.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star, Kandi Burruss, seems to have had a change of heart as she disclosed that she is not getting married after all.

It seems the pressures of the show and the drama associated with her fiance, A.J. has doomed the couple. “We’re on hiatus,” the former Xscape member said on radio station WVEE’s “The Frank & Wanda show.

Majority of the drama stems from the fact that her fiance A.J. has 6 kids by 4 different women. Kandi’s harshest critic also happened to be her mother, who was very open about her non acceptance of A.J.

The whole A.J. fiasco has apparently taken a toll on Kandi and her mother’s relationship. Kandi said it got to a point where she didn’t know if she wanted she and A.J.’s relationship to endur in order to spite her mother or because she was in love.

Kandi happens to be my current favorite Atlanta housewife, however I cannot understand her thought process in wanting to marry a man with 6 children by 4 different women. I hear there’s a shortage of men in Atlanta, but surely times can’t be this hard.

These are excerpts from the interview.

Will we see your wedding on camera?

No, uh-uh, it didn’t get that far. You will see us trying to plan, but you will see a lot of the problems and the different issues that are going on.

Have you set a date?

We haven’t set a date, and I’m just going to be real with you: We have been having serious issues. My drama has been ongoing since the taping has stopped. We just got engaged right before the taping of the show. So things that I would have to deal with or things I would have to learn about, I had to learn about and deal with it while the cameras were there, which makes things even more tense, you know what I mean?

Of course, but are you still together?

Um, we are dealing with things, but that’s about as far as I can go.
