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?
Although Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker are finally husband and wife, the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star admits that their relationship doesn’t quite feel like a marriage yet. This is largely due to the fact that the newlyweds only get to see one another on weekends, as Todd is currently stationed in Los Angeles filming for TV One’s new series, “Hollywood Divas.”
“We went from seeing each other and being together every day to a long-distance relationship—because he’s in L.A. producing his show, Hollywood Divas, for TV One, so we see each other on the weekends,” the singer/songwriter confessed to EBONY. “Sometimes we don’t even get to do that.”
As for how they are making their marriage work in spite of the distance, Kandi says it hasn’t been easy, but communication is key.
“We make it work through a lot of communication, and we try to see each other as often as possible,” the reality star explained. “There was a time when we both got really busy and went a while without seeing each other. I actually was getting really upset, almost crying. I called him fussing one day and, as I was fussing, he came through the door and surprised me. To me, you have to do things like that and make your relationship a priority. Our new rule is to not let two weeks go by without spending time together. That’s the limit.”
Kandi also offered advice for soon-to-be married couples. For one, she says that everyone else’s opinions shouldn’t hold weight in your relationship—a lesson she admits to have learned the hard way.
“Of course, everyone also says to not let anyone in your business. Obviously, that was a big issue with my mom, and I’m working on that. I had to be like, “Hey, this is what we’re doing and this is how we’re rolling.”
The former Xscape singer also reiterated her point about communication.
“Going into the marriage, everyone had something to say. (laughs) Of course, everyone says communication is key. I agree. Actually, I think that’s why Todd and I have worked as a couple for so long. He enjoys talking often. In fact, I need to step my call game up throughout the day. And if we have disagreements, I’m less inclined to want to talk about it. He wants to talk everything out. That’s helped me get better with my communication.”

I used to be so confused when I’d hear women say they didn’t want to date a momma’s boy. I remember thinking, I thought men who loved their mothers were to be commended? But there’s a difference between loving your mother and choosing to swing from the umbilical cord. And if we learned anything from this past season of RHOA, it was that boys aren’t the only ones who suffer from this disease. Kandi is so indebted to her mom, she almost allowed her to thwart her happiness with Todd.
We all saw that it was pretty bad; so much so that Kandi said if the roles were reversed, she doesn’t know if she would have handled it with as much grace as Todd did…or at all, for that matter.
In an interview with Russ Parr, a listener asked Kandi how she would have reacted if Todd’s mother treated her the way Mama Joyce treated Todd. Here’s what she had to say:
“Of course I would have been upset. I would never disrespect anybody’s mom. I wouldn’t do that but I don’t know if I would have been able to handle it as well as he has. I probably would have been like, ‘Man, I ain’t got time for this’ so I had to commend him for being so patient.”
Shoot, we commend Todd for being patient too and we don’t even know him. (Though judging by the tone in Kandi’s voice and the chuckle afterward, she might have commended him in a way only a wife can…or I might have read too much into it.)
Anyway, I thought that question brought up a good point to ponder. If you were dealing with a man who you loved as much as Kandi seems to love Todd, would you be able to put up with a Mama Joyce type character? Would you or could you marry a man with a mother like Mama Joyce? And if so, what type of action would you require that he take to make your life a bit less stressful?
You can listen to this portion of Kandi’s interview in the video below.
It’s no secret that Mama Joyce had some concerns when it came to Todd Tucker marrying her daughter. She argued that because Todd didn’t seem to be hustling to secure other jobs, she was certain that he was only with Kandi to steal her money.
Well hopefully, recent news will ease her concerns. (i.e. Shut her up.) Earlier this week, we told you about the new reality show, “Hollywood Divas.” And today we learned that Todd Tucker, Kandi’s husband will be producing the show, along with RHOA and “Love and Hip Hop” producer Carlos King. So that was the secret project that Todd was working on in LA that threatened him and Kandi’s honeymoon plans.
As you know the show will follow the lives of actresses Golden Brooks, Countess Vaughn, Lisa Wu, Elise Neal and Paula Jai Parker.
Todd released this statement through TV One:
We are excited to be a part of the TV One family on this groundbreaking series about the lives of Black Actresses in Hollywood. Our goal is to continue the success of capturing compelling stories about women from all walks of life.
And Kandi took to Instagram, referencing MadameNoire’s story by the way, to share in the joy.
Congrats to my hubby @todd167 & @kingdomlos on their new show Hollywood Divas that they’re producing for TV One! The show stars Golden Brooks, Elise Neal, Paula Jai Parker, Countess Vaughn and @1lisawu !!!! Tune in this fall and see the REALITY of life as a black actress in Hollywood.
