A few months ago we told you that newly engaged Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss made it very obvious that she’s “team prenup.” Some found her revelation to be a bit shocking, as prenuptial agreements can sometimes be a touchy subject that celebrities rarely wish to openly discuss, especially newly engaged couples. In a January blog post, she expressed that a prenup is nothing more than a safety precaution.

“I do believe in prenups. I know that some people feel if you are truly in love and are planning to be dedicated to your marriage that a prenup somehow means the person requesting the pre-nup is expecting the marriage to fail. I don’t agree. I feel like it’s a safety precaution. Just like if you have a fire extinguisher in your home it doesn’t mean you expect it to burn down, but you’re just prepared to put out the fire before it starts if need be.”

In the April issue of Upscale, the 36-year-old reality star further discussed why she would probably be signing a prenuptial agreement before tying the knot with producer fiancé, Todd Tucker. During the interview Kandi expressed that she was shocked by the public’s reaction to her initial prenup talk.

“I don’t see why it’s such a huge topic of conversation. Prenups should be standard. Those things should be put in place when everyone is thinking clear-minded. Why would you wait until y’all fall out? People do things to hurt the other when they’re hurt. If I was a man and made that [comment about prenups] I don’t think people would’ve even cared, probably.”

She also spilled on her relationship with Todd, revealing that he’s hardworking just like she is.

“The cool thing about Todd and I is that he’s very smart, intelligent. We have so many ideas that we’re planning to make happen together. We’re workaholics. That’s something we’ve been talking about lately, trying to find more ‘us’ time.”

What do you think of Kandi’s stance on prenuptial agreements?

    is it different if the woman is white, Indian, Chinese? What was the point in saying “white” celeb women? And fyi, Mariah Carey is not white!

    Good for her. When you are coming to the table with significantly more bread than your significant other there is absolutely NOTHING wrong with protecting those assets that you made before them.

    That aside, who does Kandi’s weaves? The one on this cover is one of her better ones but on the show it seems like she takes saving a penny too far and gets the cheapest stuff she can find. That weave in Anguilla was simply horrid.
