Well, these two are wasting no time. Newlyweds Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker recently revealed to In Touch magazine that they’re already trying for a baby!
“We’re trying now for a baby!” Kandi shared. “We haven’t succeeded yet. If it happens today, then we’re good with it.”
Kandi went on to share that her and her new husband are really excited about having kids together.
“We’re really looking forward to having kids together,” she added. “I can’t wait to [have] one big family!”
While we’ve known that Kandi has been wanting a baby for quite some time now, the fact that they’re already trying is huge news—especially considering that the ink has barely dried on their marriage certificate. As you may know, Kandi and Todd tied the knot two weeks ago in a beautiful “Coming to America” themed ceremony. They each parent one child from previous relationships.
We can only imagine what Mama Joyce has to say about this, but we’re super happy for Kandi!
At the start of “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta,” Lil’ Scrappy led viewers to believe that his ex-girlfriend, Diamond, abandoned him during a time that he needed her the most. However, according to Diamond, the reality star had been physically abusive to her during her relationship, which is what pushed her to leave.
“He was mentally abusive, physically abusive,” the former Crime Mob rapper recently told The Breakfast Club. “We fought, like you ain’t beatin’ my a**. Yeah, he got some issues. Some demons, he needs some help.”
“He has bad spending problems,” she continued. “I think you, you know, people go through phases. I think we’re better off as friends. I don’t want to try to continue to be in a relationship and we end up not liking each other; hating each other. I just want people to know we’re not together.”
Unsurprisingly, Diamond admits that she bumped heads with the two women who probably play the biggest roles in Scrappy’s life: his mother and his daughter’s mother, Erica. While there are rumors that Erica and Diamond got into a physical altercation at one point, Diamond says they never actually hit one another.
“Nah, we got into it before but we never fought.”
As for Momma Dee, the “Sisterhood of Hip Hop” star blames her for ruining her credit.
“I got his mother an apartment—that she trashed and messed up my credit at one point in time, terrorized. I co-signed for her a condo.”
Considering all that she has been through with Scrappy, Erica and Momma Dee, her addition to the “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” cast would’ve made for extremely interesting TV. However, Diamond says she could tell from the beginning that appearing on the show wouldn’t be a good look.
“They was using our names for ratings. I had a meeting. I wanted to see what it was about, you know as a businesswoman. It wasn’t really going with the whole plan of my music career. I don’t think it was a good look for me. I wanted to focus on what I had going on in my life currently, they wanted to focus on what happened in the past.”
Contrary to popular belief, Diamond also revealed that she and Soulja Boy are no longer together.
“I’m single. We been broke up. Y’all need to catch up. Kimora Lee Simmons and Russell hang out together all the time. We do business together.”

Last season of “Love & Hip Hop,” on-again, off-again lovers Tahiry Jose and Joe Budden appeared to part ways for good after Tahiry declined the rapper’s dramatic Times Square proposal. Though she briefly touched on it during the season, the vixen-turned-reality-star recently opened up to The Breakfast Club about her decision.
“I can’t trust him,” she said. “As far as the proposal, it was real, but everything Joey said about giving me that ring; that’s what Tahiry wanted. You’re going to give me a ring after you cheated because you thought that’s something I wanted? When do you give me a ring because you wanted to be with me forever?”
“We did talk for like a month or two after the proposal. But once it was about to air, he kind of started to act funny.”
Tahiry also touched on those pregnancy rumors that were floating around a few months back.
“There’s always rumors. Yeah, there was a rumor. Joey tweeted something like that. And then I was seen sipping champagne at some Time Warner event, so. I mean really, do the math. It was like hours later. I’m not ready for kids. I’m ripping and running everywhere. I mean, could you imagine me? I mean, what am I gonna do with a belly?”
“I actually have a meeting tonight. We just sit down and see what works for Tahiry, what works for VH1 and what’s going on in my life. That’s how we regroup after every season. So we’ll see. I’d definitely do another season.”
As for her beef with ex-best friend Rashida Ali:
“That’s what people do on camera—you never know what happens and how people might react. People change in front of the cameras. That caught me by surprise.”

‘She Went So Hard, She Doesn’t Want To Be Wrong:’ Kandi Burruss Shares Why She Thinks Mama Joyce Is Still Anti Todd
When Mama Joyce first began her campaign against Todd Tucker, most of us figured that she was trying to prevent her daughter from making what she perceived to be a terrible mistake. But now that Kandi is officially Mrs. Todd Tucker, we’re kind of wondering why Joyce is still campaigning against him although he’s technically family now. Well, Kandi believes that her mother went so hard against Todd in the beginning that she’s still putting up a fight to save face.
“She’s still not giving him any credit,” the newly married star confessed during an appearance on “Bethenny”. “I’m still trying to figure it out myself. I think at this point, she went so hard, she doesn’t want to be wrong. So maybe she’s just sticking with it.”
Speaking of husbands and marriage, Kandi also spilled on her unusual bachelorette party, which she says Phaedra took to a whole new level.
“She’s always been one to turn up the party. She didn’t do the norm. My friends were like, ‘Are we going to have another male stripper Kandi?’ But this time she went totally left and made if fun. She had a little person come and do some things, an old lady come. It was out of the box, people that you wouldn’t expect to see doing something like that.”
As for rumors that Porsha Williams may be fired from the show for her altercation with Kenya Moore, Kandi says she doesn’t think the fight is a good reason to fire Porsha.
“There was a lot going on, I can’t tell you everything. She was definitely provoked—I would think. If you’re going to let someone go, it shouldn’t be because of that.”
“No one has told me they’re getting rid of Porsha, so I haven’t given my opinion either way. There have been other times where violence was had—whether it’s been NeNe choking Kim or when Sheree pulled Kim’s wig. It’s been other things that have happened that people didn’t get fired for so I don’t think it was fair to do that to her. I feel like everybody on our cast was great this year, as far as the storyline. I want to see everyone go to the next season, even Kenya. I personally, but I don’t know how everyone else feels.”
Watch a clip from Kandi’s interview below. Turn the page for another.
Shortly after we told you that a warrant had been issued for the arrest of Porsha Williams yesterday, the newly divorced reality star turned herself in to the Fulton County Sheriffs Department. According to TMZ, Williams was charged with simple battery, which is a misdemeanor. She was released shortly after surrendering to police on $2,000 bond, but not before she snapped one of the most glammed up looking mug shots we’ve ever seen.
In case you haven’t been keeping up with ratchet headlines over the past few weeks, the battery charge stems from an altercation that occurred between Williams and “Real Housewives of Atlanta” rival Kenya Moore at the reality series’ reunion show taping.
“Kenya brought sex toys to the reunion taping to taunt Porsha about Kordell’s sexuality and she couldn’t take it anymore,” an eyewitness recalled.
“Porsha beat the sh*t out of her! She is a little thing and she jumped on her and pulled her down to the ground by her hair, and Kenya doesn’t have a weave, it is all her own hair.”
“Porsha was sick of her saying that she was Kordell’s beard and those toys were the last straw. Porsha is a skinny thing but she was whopping her butt!”
As we’ve previously reported, Williams may not be the only one smiling for a mug shot camera. Word on the street is that she is pulling to have charges pressed against Moore as well.
Would you leak a sex tape? Sell out your friends and family? You may say no but these celebrities found themselves doing that and more for some time in the lime, all for just the possibility to be famous.
Make A Sex Tape
On Love and Hip Hop Atlanta, Mimi Faust played the jilted good girl to Joseline Hernandez’s home wrecker. But when her sex tape dropped, we found out that Joseline wasn’t the only one desperate for 15 more minutes of fame.
Just days after Kandi and Todd tied the knot, Mama Joyce came forward and revealed that there was a bit of disharmony between the bride and groom a few days before the wedding because due to Todd’s refusal to sign the prenuptial agreement.
“I got a little pissed at the bridegroom the night before this wedding,” Joyce explained. “He kind of held up on signing the prenup and didn’t come to the rehearsal dinner because he didn’t want to sign it. His mom said she didn’t see no reason for him to have to sign because they were in love. He was the one who didn’t have a damn thing, but that’s another story. But from what I understand, he did sign.”
During a recent interview with the Tom Joyner Show, Kandi admitted that there was an issue regarding the signing of the prenup in the days preceding the wedding, but not for the reason that most of us may have been lead to believe.
“He always said that he would sign it, but I guess after he had met with his attorney they were bringing up stuff that they felt like was unfair. It wasn’t anything to do with the money part. My attorney had added some things that would normally be in a will. Itwas some extra stuff.”
As for Fantasia’s colorful wedding speech, Kandi says people blew it way out of proportion.
“It really wasn’t that serious,” the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star expressed. “I hate that people tried to turn it into something else. It didn’t bother me at all. I was laughing my butt off. I thought it was funny. She had a drink or two, so she was feeling good. She’s supposed to feel comfortable around me. It bothered me that people tried to make more out of it than what it really was.”
Kandi also confirmed rumors that Mama Joyce and Todd’s mom, Miss Sharon, don’t get along so well. Apparently we’ll be able to witness the in-law drama unfold once her Bravo wedding special airs.
Listen to Kandi’s full interview below.
For weeks we’ve been discussing the fight that went down between Porsha Williams and Kenya Moore at Bravo’s recent “Real Housewives of Atlanta” reunion show taping. Since news of the fight broke, several cast members and executives from the network have come forward to offer their two cents on the altercation. But now it appears that things are being taken a step further.
As you may recall, following the altercation, Moore called 911 and told the dispatcher that she’d been attacked by Williams. It was unclear what happened once authorities arrived to the scene. Well, until now that is. According to TMZ, Williams has been charged with assault because of the altercation and a warrant has been issued for her arrest.
Williams is apparently already aware of that warrant, however, and her attorney, Joe Habachy, says that she will turn herself in tomorrow. It also appears that this legal war won’t be a one-sided thing. It’s being reported that Williams’ defense team is requesting that the D.A. file felony aggravated assault charges against Moore.
We will continue to keep you posted as this story develops.
At this point, it’s been confirmed that a fight did in fact occur between Kenya Moore and Porsha Williams at the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” reunion show taping. What’s interesting though, are the reactions to the fight by the folks who witnessed it first-hand. As you may recall, Nene Leakes recently expressed that while she does not condone violence, Porsha was provoked.
“They welcome a good argument, that’s always good television,” the “Dancing With The Stars” contender explained. “But to touch each other is really crossing the line. But they did get in a physical altercation. I feel like one was provoked, the other one, knocked her out. Like, ‘provoke me, BOP!’”
Bravo VP of Development and Talent and reunion show host, Andy Cohen, recently commented on the fight as well.
“There was an altercation that took place between Kenya [Moore] and Porsha [Williams],” Andy said during an episode of AskAndy. “They stood up…I think I stood up pretty quickly. It was such a flash, and it started to escalate,” he continued. “I was trying to prevent it, and a couple other people jumped in too. To me, it came out of nowhere.”
Though talk of the fight appears to have fostered greater anticipation for the upcoming reunion show, Andy seems totally turned off by the whole thing.
“The other women felt Kenya provoked her a bit…I was so shocked and surprised and really upset,” he said. “I don’t want that to happen. I think it’s gross. And I think it’s just totally inappropriate. It’s wrong. It’s not entertaining. It’s just bad.”
Watch Andy discuss the fight below.
For about a year now, it’s been rumored that “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” star MiMi Faust and her boyfriend, Nikko, had a sex tape floating around. In the newly released “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” supertrailer, the existence of the video was confirmed by MiMi, Nikko, Stevie and Joseline.
“I’m in such another place, I don’t even realize when that camera is on,” MiMi tells Nikko in the trailer.
Well, the camera was definitely on and according to TMZ, those tapes have been acquired by Vivid Entertainment. Vivid executive Steve Hirsch says he acquired the tape and recently got MiMi and Nikko to sign off on it. According to Hirsch, “Love & Hip Hop” producers have also given their blessing on the tape. The tape, which has been titled “MiMi & Nikko: Scandal In Atlanta,” will be released later this month.
