Kandi and Todd already have a three-year-old son named Ace Tucker. Kandi has sixteen-year-old daughter Riley Burruss from a previous relationship and Todd’s daughter Kaela is twenty-two. Soon, they will add another baby to their family!
Sometimes I don’t realize how old I’m getting until I see photos of other people’s kids. Allow me to present, Exhibit A: Kandi Burruss’ eldest child, Riley. When we first met Riley on Real Housewives of Atlanta, she was a shy little girl being raised by her single mother. Over the years, viewers have watched Kandi try to navigate a relationship with Riley’s father, who hasn’t played a large role in his daughter’s upbringing. Through the twists and turns of Kandi’s life, Riley was by her mom’s side. Now she is practically a grown woman and ready to take on the world.
Kandi’s daughter has definitely gone through some changes. Riley gained a stepfather in Todd Tucker. His daughter was brought into the Burruss group as well. Then Todd and Kandi welcomed their son, Ace, in 2016. Riley has always presented as bashful and not particularly outspoken, but being raised in the spotlight isn’t easy. We’ve never seen Riley engage in, shall we say, other activities of celebrity children. As a testament to her overall goodness, Kandi gifted Riley a Porsche Cayenne for her Sweet Sixteen last year. Nicki Minaj even had special floor mats made with Riley’s nickname! Well, it’s that time again, another birthday to celebrate. But Riley didn’t get a fast ride this year, she took to social media with another idea.
Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss has been very open with her struggle to balance career and family time. In last week’s episode, the cast did their version of rose and thorn during their last dinner in Japan. Eva Marcille asked the ladies to discuss the highs and lows they have in their lives right now.
Kandi gushed her “highs” are all about how amazing all of her businesses are doing. For her “lows,” she admitted she struggles to find time for her family. She explained this is why her husband Todd Tucker and her daughter Riley Burruss aren’t too thrilled with her desire to have another baby. Apparently, fans of the show are also upset over Kandi’s work life balance.
Real Housewives of Atlanta vet, Kandi Burruss has been ensconced in the Celebrity Big Brother House since January 21. Her husband Todd Tucker has been vigilant on social media requesting fans to vote for Kandi as America’s Favorite Houseguest. The winner of this illustrious honor receives $25,000, so Todd is “invested” (see what I did there) in Kandi bringing home the prize.
It is safe to say Todd feels Kandi’s celebrity friends have not shown enough support for the working mom. He recently shared encouraging words for Kandi, and thinly veiled threats for others, to keep the $25,000 hope alive.
Kandi won’t be the first Real Housewife to be a Big Brother houseguest. In its first season, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum, Brandi Glanville, made it to day 24 out of 26 after two back to back nominations for eviction.What will be Kandi’s strategy to avoid getting
dragged in this b*tch put on the block?
On last night’s Real Housewives Of Atlanta episode, Porsha Williams‘ relationship with Dennis McKinley was tested. Then, she turned to the professionals for help. In happier news, the women also learned they’re going to Japan to sightsee, enjoy amazing cuisine, and take in all the local culture… HA!
We pick up at Tanya Sam‘s house. Tanya is obviously in denial. She pretends she’s hosting a real dinner party, with her real friends. However, this is a Real Housewives Of Atlanta party with fake friends who are paid to hate each other. In this case, Kandi Burruss is threatening to leave before dinner is even served (and the trip to Japan announced) because Porsha called her fake.
The drama began when Kandi threw Todd Tucker a Michael Jordan themed 45th birthday party. Being benevolent (Or something like that!) Kandi invited Porsha and Dennis McKinley. And because parties are gathering places to bring people together from all sides of the spectrum Kandi also invited her “worker” Jami. Jami happens to be friends with Dennis’ ex Sherri. Sherri happens to be tattooed on Dennis’s body, and Jami happened to bring Sherri as her plus one. And then Sheri happened to loiter around Porsha and Dennis until Porsha walked away, then Sherri walked over to Dennis and gave him a hug and a kiss, just as Porsha happened to walk back over. Obviously Porsha got a little miffed and confronted Sherri. Wouldn’t you?
On last night’s Real Housewives Of Atlanta, Porsha Williams relationship continued to be THE word on the street. Kandi Burrus found herself in hot water for running her mouth. Also, NeNe Leakes got some bad news about Gregg’s health.
It’s Dennis McKinley‘s turn to be in the hot seat and meet Porsha’s mom. They get together at his hookah lounge CRU, which makes perfect sense since Diane doesn’t like the smell of hookah.”Between hookah, hair, and hot dogs, there’s not one other word that begins with ‘H’ that could describe my Dennis,” Porsha brags. Dennis, who doesn’t have hair, but does have the delightful distinction of looking hot dog-esque (sans the ‘hot’ part). Aren’t hookah lounges passe – just like visible panty lines, which Porsha, unfortunately, has in those way too tight jeggings.
