Tonight the THREE-Part Real Housewives Of Atlanta reunion begins – meaning the drama between NeNe Leakes and Kandi Burruss will finally explode! Actually it seems like the entire reunion is NeNe-central (sorry NoNeensters!) because as Kandi explains, “She had a break-through.”
“She was bringing up some things in her past that really struck a nerve with her. Like talking about things in her childhood.” says Kandi of NeNe’s sobbing meltdown. “It brought about a different emotion.”
Apparently NeNe’s meltdown was a bonding moment for the group as all the women comforted her. “It was better than last year’s [reunion]. There was no hair pulling, so I guess that was progress,” Kandi laughs. “But, how do you have all this arguing and then skip off?”
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 lives with us. And we would not have it any other way. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite snapshots and selfies from this week. Enjoy.
As Bravo describes, Kandi and Todd decide to plan a Burruss-Tucker family ski vacation to Colorado to take their mind off of Todd’s mother Sharon’s sudden passing. There, they face “newlywed” issues from “struggling to blend their families to trying to get pregnant.” So, basically their RHOA storyline??? A preview of Kandi’s Ski Trip is below!
Rumors have been swirling that Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker will be capitalizing on the success of their wedding spinoff with a show about married life called Meet The Tuckers, which will chronicle the ups and downs of about blending their unconventional families, dealing with mama drama, merging their careers, and building a successful marriage.
Kandi and Todd just visited Europe to celebrate their 1-year anniversary. Starting with Paris, the Real Housewives Of Atlanta stars then traveled to London, and finally Amsterdam where sources say Bravo cameras have been trailing them during their “surprise” trip, supposedly planned by Todd. While in Amsterdam the even ran into Orange Is The New Black star Danielle Brooks!
It’s either raining Real Housewives Of Atlanta spinoffs over at Bravo! Or some people just thirsty for attention… Claudia Jordan recently hinted on instagram that she may be headed for her own solo show. Lifestyles Of A Bunionista, anyone?! Meanwhile Kandi Burruss is ready to move into the motivational speaking realm of things and wants to share what she’s learned from her successes and failures – reality TV included!
First up, Claudia! The newbie RHOA star enjoyed Easter brunch with producers Carlos King and Brent Nisbett (who also produce Hollywood Divas with Todd Tucker!) and she announced that “may be” a spinoff is coming…
There have been several rumors that Claudia (who knew Carlos) was cast on the show specifically to cause conflict (with a certain Housewife who has since issued her a C&D letter) and was coached by producers. As a result of some acrimonious situations (some of which were edited out) and the vociferous complaints of other Housewives about favortism and storyline manipulations, an EVP was let-go. Carlos even did an interview promising that Claudia would bring the drama. However, NeNe Leakes has a longtime friendship with Princess Banton-Lofters, the creator of RHOA…
Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker are continuing the family business of reality TV! According to reports the couple has inked a deal and has been quietly filming a spinoff about their blended family drama called ‘Meet The Tuckers‘!
Married life has not been easy for Kandi and Todd from Mama drama, to combining a household with their two teenaged daughters while also trying to build a production business as a couple. The couple has also dealt with the sudden passing of Todd’s mother Sharon. All of the mishaps, mayhem, and family planning has been featured on Real Housewives Of Atlanta cameras and the couple’s previous wedding spinoff Kandi’s Wedding.
Kandi has seemed over the drama on RHOA this season and she hasn’t really engaged with co-stars instead focusing on her own family, including counseling with Todd, probably because her spinoff deal was in the works all along!
Steve says that Kandi and Todd seem to be one of the realest reality couples. Kandi says that a lot of people worry before the new season about what they’re storyline will be, etc, but they don’t. “We just put our life out there, we’re not secretive, we don’t try to hide things or portray ourselves a certain way. Because I don’t think people like that anyway. I think people relate to you more when you just give them your normal life. We all go through the same things.” Todd says “we have real issues.”
In real time, Kenya‘s birthday was Saturday. Her blog suggests that she spent it with a new love interest. “This week has been phenomenal. I took two days to celebrate my birthday. I have to say, my favorite was a couple’s massage and stimulating dinner with new people. To be honest, I feel like my life is taking a turn for the better. I think forgiveness has been key. Not only forgiving others who have wronged me, but also forgiving myself for the wrong I’ve done as well. Through my personal journey my world and heart have expanded and I’m growing every day. With that said, I’m finally able to receive and attract love the way I have always wanted.”
