Kandi Burruss has worked hard for her money but she also makes sure to give back! Kandi and new husband Todd Tucker hosted the Kandi C.A.R.E.S Season Of Blessings food drive.
Gathering a few of her celebrity friends the Real Housewives Of Atlanta star collected turkeys, canned foods, and other holiday items to help those in need prepare a Thanksgiving meal for their families.
Hosting the fundraiser in conduction with My Fair Sweets Bakery, guests purchased items from a specially-crafted desserts menu with a portion of the proceeds going towards Kandi C.A.R.E.S. single parent programs.
I had to resist the urge to write this post in all capital letters because I could not agree more with Kenya Moore‘s blog this week. So much so, I want to scream it! Sing it while twirling down the middle of a busy street! Send a copy of it to her Real Housewives of Atlanta co-stars! I will spare you the capital letters, but I can’t promise I won’t twirl here or there. #Kidding #NotCrazy #NotTwirling
“Brandon is the funny to my bone and the little brother I’ve always wanted. He is my constant source of sunshine. His impersonations and jokes always have me in stitches. ‘Really B*tch‘ was inspired by all the hypocrites and contrarians that are verbose when it comes to maligning me. i.e., I’m a whore but I can’t get a man, I’m fake but two new Housewives got their boobs done this year, I paid a man to play my boyfriend but I’m broke,” shares Kenya. “These ridiculous oxymoronic statements never cease to amaze me as to how they would be spoken from anyone’s mouth.”
Kandi addressed the fact that she bought a house very very very close to her own for Mama Joyce. Did I mention it’s close?!? The thought of Mama Joyce within walking distance gives me hives, but she isn’t my mama. Kandi obviously feels differently. When asked if she was worried about Mama Joyce being so close, Kandi said, “No, not at all. It would be easier for me to stop by and check on her. She is getting older, so the closer the better.” That’s understandable – but Mama Joyce isn’t sane. Good luck, Kandi. LOL
Kandi added that Joyce and Todd are “cordial” these days, but she admitted that Joyce wanting an apology from Sharon is ridiculous. “I have no idea how my mom thinks Todd‘s mom should apologize when she won’t apologize for the things that she said.”
Last night on Real Housewives Of Atlanta a little redemption was served piping hot and brewed strong. Apollo Nida came clean about lies he told about Kenya Moore trying to get with him. The most shocking thing is that everyone was shocked Apollo would lie in the first place; liars lie, and so do criminals.
Lord – these are trying times when I have to type the word “fellatio” over and over again, but so be it. Thank you Bravo.
Apollo decided he could take no more of living in deceit – his soul needed purging, the man must be redeemed. Apparently two steps outside a prison cell he had an epiphany – and he ain’t gonna do bad no more! OK, well not quite, but Apollo finally copped up to lying about Kenya.
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from this week. Enjoy!
“Phaedra is always assuming I’m siding with Apollo, which isn’t true,” insisted Kandi. “Todd and Apollo became pretty good friends, so I would say he takes Apollo’s side a lot. Todd and I have serious debates over their issues. I get to the point where I am like, ‘Listen Todd, we should not be arguing about their problems.’ It’s crazy really.” Phaedra said NeNe has been the most supportive.
Apollo Nida‘s legal issues were the main focus of the Real Housewives of Atlanta season premiere, but we did get to see little bits of what the other cast members have been up to since the reunion. Cynthia Bailey, who’s on the hunt for a new best friend, followed the scent of loneliness and ended up on Kenya Moore‘s doorstep.
I imagined Cynthia saying to herself, ‘I shall call her Krazy, and she shall be mine, and she shall be my Krazy.’ HaHa. Don’t get me wrong, though, Kenya‘s crazy is the only reason I watch RHOA. Kenya took to her blog to share her thoughts on the season premiere. Including titles: RIP Baby Velvet, Detroit vs. Everybody Else, Ignorance is not a Handicap, Promise to Detroit Children, and Love Me or Hate Me. So dramatic. So Kenya. Here we go.
“Words cannot express the turmoil this situation has caused our family, and I can’t even begin to articulate how hard it has been,” said Phaedra. “When you face a situation like this, you can choose to either break down or stay strong; I chose to stay strong because I have two young children that need a parent to give them stability and keep the ship sailing.”
