“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.”
“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.
Booze plus boobies, plus booty can equal a bride’s worst nightmare when you add her hubby-to-be into the equation. But Todd Tucker says that now-wife, Kandi Burruss wasn’t really tripping about his bachelor party.
“I do have a cool wife,” Todd recently boasted to Life & Style. “I think it’s just the modern day thing. Strip clubs are like, for guys right now, normal. Girls go there, too, so it’s kind of like, whatever! It’s so funny. There’s a big stripper culture in Atlanta and we’ve been to strip clubs together before. It’s just entertaining and fun.”
Although he pegs her as a “cool” wife, the reality TV producer did admit that Kandi set a few ground rules about how he should conduct himself at the party.
“She did [set rules]. We did have some rules. There was definitely no X-rated stuff happening. She said I could have a lap dance. She was OK with that.”
He didn’t specify whether or not he broke those rules, but he did confess to doing something that he didn’t really want his wife to see.
“We were pretty PG with it except for the little strawberry thing. When I bit from the girl’s mouth I thought, ‘Ehhh, you might’ve gone too far with that one.’ I feel like I might get a pass, depending on which angle you see it from. It may look like we touched lips if you don’t see it from the frontal part, but for the most part, it was just a lot of fun. It was a lot of fun, making it rain. We were just having a good time.”
Judging by last night’s episode, both and Kandi Todd thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
Check out footage from both of their parties below.

At this point, the most interesting thing about Kandi Burruss is the fact that her mother doesn’t know how to act –or she knows exactly how to act in order to secure a reality show spin-off. Either way, when we see Kandi all anyone wants to talk about is the drama Mama Joyce brings to her new marriage. And in her “Watch What Happens Live” interview with Andy Cohen, that’s what the callers wanted to know. One woman asked Kandi if she’d considered banning Mama Joyce from her home if she can’t find a way to respect her husband.
Here’s what Kandi had to say.
Basically, my mother and I we always have conversations. People think I don’t say anything to her and that’s not true. I say things all the time. She doesn’t always receive it. Whether or not she receives it, we do what we want to do.
Now the whole argument between his mom and my mom last week was because I did not allow her to come to the house one time when I felt she was going to come over and make Todd uncomfortable. And so she’s been holding a grudge about it ever since, like ‘Oh, I can’t come to your house.’ It’s not that she can’t come to my house I just didn’t want her to come if she was going to have an attitude, be saying negative things or not speaking.
Andy: Was there a point where you felt like you were going to have to shut her out completely?
Honestly, we go through those moments all the time and we stop talking for days at a time. Like right now we haven’t been talking for a couple days…it’s something about my dad. It’s silly to me. It gets to be petty sometimes. And that’s why I’m like ‘Ok, we just need a break.’
Apparently she must be waiting on me to call her because she’s never wrong. That’s what I’m saying. Regardless of what is said, she never sees her part in the situation. She always makes it seem like I’m just wrong. So we’ll go days until I call.
Other people pointed the finger in Kandi’s direction for the terms of her prenup. One of the conditions was that if they break up, he would have to leave their home within 30 days. She wanted to know that if they share the house together, why wouldn’t they split it if their marriage doesn’t work.
I did buy the house. He pays the bills but as far as the house itself…
Andy: You own it.
Well yeah. He doesn’t want the house. I don’t want people to think ‘Oh he’s trying to get the house.’ It’s just the fact that when you get divorced sometimes it can be a long, dragged out process. I remember talking to Bethenny recently and she was saying how she hated the fact–she had a prenup– but she they didn’t have any term where he had to get out. So he was there for a long time.
Andy: He may still be there as a matter of fact.
So that’s why attorneys put those stipulations in there.
Kandi also said that Todd’s mother is still mad, naturally, about the things Mama Joyce said about her. And when it comes to expanding their family she said that she and Todd want to have children but they’re not trying but not not trying. You know? They’re just going to go with the flow and see what happens.
You can check out the video clips from Kandi’s interview on the next page.
If you thought all was well in the Tucker-Burruss household because they made it down the aisle, think again. Kandi just stopped by our office and told us that her spin-off reality show, “Kandi’s Wedding Special,” has opened up a whole new can of worms between her and her in-laws and it’s not good. When I think of what Kandi told us, something makes me want to tell Mama Joyce she’s messed with the wrong one now because ever since Todd and his mom found out she called her a hoe — and his deceased father a pimp — things haven’t been so well between the newly joined families, and what’s worse is Todd and his mom are blaming Kandi for not telling them about her mom’s harsh words. And, child, that is just the beginning.
Check out the video above to hear how things are fairing between Kandi, Todd, and the in-laws in the video above. Do you think these two will outlast the family drama?
