“I Would Have Been Fed Up Before The Jail Situation Ever Came”: Kandi Burruss Speaks On Whether Or Not Phaedra Should Divorce Apollo
In a chat with The Breakfast Club alongside her husband Todd Tucker, Kandi Burruss spoke about married life and filming the new season of “Real Housewives of Atlanta.” During that conversation, she was asked about good friend Phaedra Parks, and whether or not they had spoken about what Parks should do about her marriage. With Apollo Nida currently behind bars and looking at eight full years away from his family, many assume that Parks will run for the hills. But Burruss says she wouldn’t have left Nida over his second stint in jail. In fact, she would have left a long time ago if she was Parks.
If She Advised Parks To File For Divorce:
No, I didn’t tell her to get a divorce. See, I’m cool with Phaedra, but Todd is cool with Apollo. So this conversation gets heated sometimes. He and I debate about the situation.
What She Thought About Nida’s Behavior Over The Years:
It’s a lot of stuff about that situation that you’re going to find out on the new season, so I can’t really tell you. I can’t, no, but it’s some things that will be surprising about that situation that’s going to come on the new season. So I can’t go too far about that. It’s some things that’s going to come back that you’ll see that you’re going to be like, ‘huh!?’
If She Would Leave Her Husband If He Went To Prison:
For me, if it were my husband or whatever, I wouldn’t leave him just because he was going to jail. I wouldn’t. But if it was about the other stuff that was going on that would be different. If he was just doing me wrong all the time, I would be like, ‘I don’t have time for this.’ There are certain things that could put any relationship in a bad position. But I would just say that I would have been fed up before the jail situation ever came…
I feel like, if she does do anything, I feel like she’s going to be judged just because people are like ‘Oh you’re supposed to stay down for your man.’ But nobody really thinks about whatever else may go on. I don’t think that’s fair.
You can check out Burruss’ full conversation, alongside Tucker (who is promoting “Hollywood Divas”) below. Her statements about Parks and Nida start around the 9:25 mark.
Kandi has been very open and honest about the fact that she wants to get pregnant as soon as possible, like yesterday.
And she and Todd posted what could have been a telling photo at a shoe store this weekend which left many wondering if she’s finally gotten her wish. On Saturday, Todd and Kandi were in LA and both of them made a point to post pictures of Todd looking at infant shoes.
Kandi posted the image on her Facebook page with the caption:
“In LA shoe shopping! Hope y’all kickin it today and enjoying something.”-tt
If you recall, Kelly Rowland announced her pregnancy in a similar fashion, placing infant shoes next to her husband’s Tim Witherspoon’s.
Last month, Kandi told In Touch Weekly, “I want to get pregnant this year! Knock it out by 39! I just don’t want to keep waiting. At first we thought it would just happen, but it hasn’t yet. So now we’re clocking days and making an effort. We really want to start a family together.”
Kandi even told In Touch that she wants a boy this time around. “I always wanted to have a son. With girls, you’re scared somebody’s going to take advantage of them or something. I just feel like boys are easier. You don’t have to worry as much.” Both Kandi and Todd have daughters from previous relationships.
What do you make of this picture? Do you think it’s an announcement of some sort or will you need more proof?
Though she made it clear that she’s not pregnant yet, Kandi Burruss says she’s definitely still trying.
“I want to get pregnant this year!” she told In Touch Weekly.
“Knock it out by 39! I just don’t want to keep waiting,” she continued.
According to Kandi, she thought that they’d be able to conceive without putting forth any real effort. But now that it hasn’t happened, they’re being more proactive about it.
“At first, we thought it would just happen, but it hasn’t yet. So now we’re clocking days and making an effort. We really want to start a family together.”
She adds that she’s still hoping for a boy and wouldn’t be opposed to undergoing fertility treatments to make it happen.
“I always wanted to have a son!” she exclaimed. “We’re even open to in vitro fertilization. The cool part about that is we could guarantee a boy.”
Hopefully Kandi gets her baby boy sooner than later.
Apparently some were speculating that newlywed Kandi Burruss is with child. But the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star is saying, not so fast! In an Instagram post shared earlier this week, Kandi subtly shut down the rumors.
“Tonight I decided to rock @tagsboutique again,” Kandi captioned a photo of herself rocking an adorable skirt and top combination before drawing attention to her snatched waist. “My top & skirt is from my store Tags. Shoes are @loubitonworld.
Underneath I put on my #WrightWaistTrainer from @latashawright (so everyone can stop saying I’m preggers… SMH), & last but not least I’m rocking my girl @rasheedadabosschick #PurpleDragon lip gloss from her makeup line #Poiz. Get the look at TagsAddicts.com #IveBeenTagged #TagsAddict #AddictedToTags #LegsHipsBody #ThickChickAndHeLovesIt”
While she may not be pregnant, currently, Kandi has expressed a desire to have a child with her new hubby, Todd Tucker. As you may recall, we told you back in April that the couple had already began trying for a new baby.
“We’re trying now for a baby!” Kandi gushed.. “We haven’t succeeded yet. If it happens today, then we’re good with it.”
“We’re really looking forward to having kids together,” she added. “I can’t wait to [have] one big family!”
We’re wishing both Kandi and Todd the best!

We all watched Todd endure his fair share of hell from Kandi’s mother, Mama Joyce, on the “Real Housewives of Atlanta.” And most of us can agree that he handled it with more class than many of us would have–including Kandi herself.
So with that in mind, it’s only right that Kandi show her man extra special attention whenever she can.
Todd’s birthday is coming up on August 4 but apparently, Kandi couldn’t wait to surprise him.
She posted a picture of her new husband in the white Corvette she bought him on Instagram. Here’s how she captioned it.
Happy Birthday to my love @todd167!!! I love you babe! His bday is Monday August 4th but we’re celebrating all weekend :* #stingray #corvette #MadeInTheUSA #HeLovesHisGift I’m a good wide! Lol!
Yes, props to you Kandi. “You done good.”
Tiny recently stopped by The Breakfast Club, where she spoke candidly about a plethora of different topics including her marriage to T.I., that infamous Mayweather photo and Xscape’s throwback beef with Biggie Smalls. Check out a few highlights from her interview below.
On meeting T.I.:
“His first record was out, but it didn’t do so good. He was just a little young man. He’s a little bit younger than me. It kind of took me a a minute before we started dating because he was so young, but he was cool. He was sweet and very nurturing. He made sure he was real protective. I liked all that.”
On if industry man can be faithful:
“I mean, I would hope so. I hope for it to be possible.”
On being a ride or die:
“I was just kind of sitting back in the cut letting him do his thing and I was falling back. I felt like that was a part of, you know, riding with him because that’s kind of what he needed at the time. Then, you know, all of the jail sentences, you know just being there. I’m down to make him feel like the king.”
On her relationship being under the microscope:
“It is what it is. We living a real life here and however y’all wanna see it or take it…what you see is what you get. I mean, some of the rumors and sh– ain’t true, so I don’t really get all in my emotions.”
On if she hung out with Floyd to make her husband jealous:
“I was not. I mean, who didn’t want to go to the fight? I was in the picture with a whole bunch of people, so.”
“It’s just a picture, you take plenty of pictures all day, everyday.”
On women claiming that they’ve been with T.I.:
“I don’t really go into all that. A lot if the stuff they say, I know ain’t true. It don’t really bother me. I don’t bring it up unless I feel like it got some kind of substance to it, but not nothing from Instagram or anything.”
On T.I.’s mom telling them to work things out on social media:
“She’s new to social media and doesn’t really know how it works yet. She’s just thinking, ‘Oh, this is where they talk. The young people talk on social media.’ So she did it and I think she didn’t know that everybody is watching you.”
On Biggie dissing Xscape back in the day and calling them ugly in a song:
“We did feel a kind of way. We were working on our 2nd album and Jermaine was like, ‘Biggie here. He wanna come to y’all show.’ We were like, ‘Hell nah! No!’ Then he came and Jermaine was like, ‘He wants to talk to y’all. He wants to meet y’all.’ We were like, ‘No!’ But the night that he passed, we were at the party and he asked to talk to me and Kandi. Kandi was like, ‘I’m not going over there. I don’t wanna talk to him.’ So I was just like I’m going to go over there and see what he’s talking about.”
“He just apologized and said that he should’ve never said it and how he was ugly too and how you guys look good now. And that was that. I just told him we weren’t feeling him at all. But I was glad we got to talk before he passed. It was on March 9th, the same night.”

Yesterday, Apollo Nida was hit with a sentence of eight years for bank fraud and ID theft, and I’m sure it’s a harrowing time for him and his family. But many are wondering how Phaedra Parks is doing. She was not present to support Nida during his sentencing yesterday, and considering that their marital issues seemed to get worse and worse during season six of the show, many are wondering if Parks will even stick around for Nida’s second prison stint. But one person who has the inside scoop on how Parks is faring in all of this is good friend Kandi Burruss. When asked how Parks is doing, Burruss told Hollywood Life that she’s distracting herself with work, including promoting her book, Secrets of the Southern Belle: How To Be Nice, Work Hard, Look Pretty, Have Fun, and Never Have an Off Moment.
“Phaedra’s doing great. She’s basically working. That’s how I deal with things too; when I have a lot going on, I just put more into work.
I know that she’s promoting her book and doing the book tour and stuff like that and she’s not really trying to focus as much on what’s happening.”
I know it can’t be easy. During yesterday’s sentencing, Apollo apologized to Parks and his family for all that he put them through this second time around, saying he was sorry “for letting them down.”
But what do you think the next move will be for Parks? Do you think she’ll stay and support Nida?
“It Was A Very Tough Time Getting Through This Wedding”: Todd Tucker Speaks On Struggle To Film “Kandi’s Wedding”
I just want to thank everyone for supporting Kandi and I. It was a very tough time getting through this wedding. I did this in hopes to show our young men it’s okay to get married, though things will be tough and you will have to put in work. I’ve shared my life with the world I hope you were entertained but at the end of the day I hope you learned something and was able to take something away from my experience. With that said I thank you all from my heart for the love and support!!! BX 167 for life!!!
It isn’t the first time that Tucker has spoken about his struggles to get to the big wedding day. He told Buzzfeed the following:
“During filming, I wasn’t sure that we were going to make it. There were times when I felt like I couldn’t do this anymore.” But he does say that in the end, he’s head-over-heels in love with Kandi and that his favorite part of their wedding was watching Kandi smile.
“It was such a great moment to see her so happy that she couldn’t even control it.”
Kandi Burruss has been getting a lot of prenup backlash. But we don’t think Todd got such a raw deal. From weight gain clauses to baby buy outs, Hollywood prenuptial agreements can get crazy. Todd should probably thank his lucky stars that he got off light.
