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."
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.
Kandi Burruss' ideas about planning a wedding in 5 weeks are as crazy as Joyce's ideas about, well, anything – but most specifically Todd Tucker. Last night was illuminating because it seems Mama Joyce gave Kandi's father Titus 'The Todd Treatment' way back when they were married! So let's dive right in – it's juicy, but in the manner of a car crash or Lindsay Lohan wandering around Rodeo Drive sans panties.
Kandi meets her dad for dinner to see if he'd be willing to officiate her ceremony. He is of course in agreement. Kandi reveals that for many years following her parents' divorce Titus, now a pastor, was barely around and she did not see him for years. And it turns out that likely has everything to do with V For Vendetta: The Mama Joyce Modus Operandi.
Kandi Burruss is facing wedding opposition from Mama Joyce, obviously, but is her father Titus prepared to give his daughter away to Todd Tucker?
On tonight's episode of Kandi's Wedding, Kandi asks her father to officiate the wedding but gets caught in more family drama. Plus, Todd is reeling from Mama Joyce's accusations against his parents and Kandi's wedding planning committee deals with Carmon's departure! A preview is below!
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!
With the premiere of the Real Housewives of Atlanta: Kandi's Wedding, earlier this week, we got a front row seat for the planning of Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker'sComing to America-themed wedding. And if you saw any of the last season with our girls from Atlanta, you knew that this spin-off was going to be drama-filled. At the end of the season Kandi's family had yet to approve of Todd — and that is putting it kindly — and Kandi had not started planning her wedding, despite wanting to have it in a couple of months.
Bravotv.com sat down Todd Tucker to get his take on meeting Kandi, his relationship with Mama Joyce and her sisters and Carmon, Kandi's best friend and personal assistant who quit over the wedding in the premiere episode.
Last week was the premiere of Kandi's Wedding, while we were all hopeful Mama Joyce had undergone a lobotomy, personality transplant and a change of heart, she did not have time to visit the wizard on her days off and was, alas, completely unchanged!
This week she continued her crusade against Todd Tucker, accusing his mother of being a "hoe" and his deceased father a "pimp". WhileKandi Burrusswas also dealing with that incident, her bridesmaid, best friend, and past Mama Joyce victim Carmon quit in the midst of planning the Coming To America themed wedding. Needless to say, it was a bad week!
In her Bravo blog, Kandi discusses Mama Joyce's mouth and behavior and where things stand with Carmon now.
Last night was the premiere of Kandi's Wedding. Unfortunately what is supposed to be a joyful occasion for the couple has been usurped by drama and negativity! Of course Mama Joyce is doing everything in her power to destroy Kandi Burruss' happiness; from telling Kandi she's fat, to accusing Todd Tucker's parents of being a retired pimp and ho. Seriously Mama Joyce said Todd's mother Sharon was a former "working girl" who had trained Todd to hustle for Kandi's money. And Todd's now deceased father was once her pimp! If I were Sharon I would be getting an attorney on the phone immediately! #LawsuitByBravo
Other than Mama Joyce, Kandi's BFF and bridesmaid Carmon has been shoved into the role of impromptu wedding planner. Kandi tells her team (which includes manager Don Juan) that she wants to plan her entire Coming To America themed wedding in 5 weeks – and to save money (since Kandi is a girl who loves a deal!) she's decided to skip the high-priced wedding planners and rely on her assistant/bridesmaid Carmon and another employee, her event coordinator Johnny who has done a few simple weddings in the past. Oh lord – this spells trouble in both Zamundan and English!
