Kandi Burruss: Getting A Pre-Nup

Kandi Burruss, The Real Housewives of Atlanta star hasn’t had the easiest engagement to fiancé, Todd Tucker. Their relationship has been strained because of Kandi’s mom, Mama Joyce. Mama Joyce has hated Todd from day one and has been very vocal about her feelings towards the Reality TV Producer. She believes Todd is an opportunist, using Kandi for her money.

Kandi is on the cover of Jet Magazine this month and discussing her relationship with Todd and her mama. The soon to be Mrs. Tucker told the publication she is continuing to stand by her man and shut down the naysayers.

“We are moving forward, I have a date, but I’m not saying. We are doing a pre-nup, it’s like insurance. You don’t want to need it but but it’s there in case a disaster happens.”

Kandi is enjoying both her professional and personal success while ignoring the “haters.”

“I love that Todd is affectionate and relationship-oriented. But he’s also a leader and a planner, and because of his production background he makes me a better businesswoman.”

It’s no secret that a big strain on the couple’s relationship is disapproval of Todd from Mama Joyce (even leading to a potential breaking point for Todd.)

With a wedding being inevitable, even Mama Joyce seems to be softening. “I pray I am wrong,” Kandi’s mom told JET. “If they are married and it lasts, I will be the first to apologize.”

    How many more episodes of Atlanta will there be? Are they going to center around Mama Joyce and her interference with the wedding plans?

    • noarguingwithstupid

      I am really getting sick of Kandi’s Aging Mother interferring with Kandi’s life. If the rest of the wedding plans are just going to be a repeat of Kandi’s Mother acting like an asshole, then please just wake us when the wedding is over!!!

      • WestCoastFeed

        Forget about Mama Joyce. I want to see Kenya and NeNe go at it.

        • noarguingwithstupid

          Yes, I would like to see that too!!!!

        • Marsbars09

          I think the Kenya-Nene-Marlo saga is going to come to a head either on the last episode of the season or at the reunion.
          Ladies and gentlemen, bolt down your chairs! LOL!

          • Nene told producers to fre Marlo after field day……from what i hear that is suppose to be the last of marlo…..

          • Marsbars09

            Are you stating the producers are taking cues from Moose?! I sure the hell hope not. Moose is big headed enough as it is.

          • twifan2

            PLEASE let Ney Ney be the FIRST OFF DWTS!!! 😀

          • Marsbars09

            Twi, no one can shoot themselves in the hoof like Moose can.

        • Tre’s Twits aren’t Angelic

          I don’t think I’ll see it, but I’m expecting that that guy dancing with Neigh Neigh is going to be done for after this season.

          Because Neigh Neigh is going to blow out his knees or wreck his back structure or something like that.

          Those guys and girls are major gluttons for punishment!

          • WestCoastFeed

            Yes, I see a back brace in his future.

          • noarguingwithstupid

            And a neck brace!!! He will be a mess if it does not end quickly!!!! If her hooves slip, and he goes to catch her, he will be in traction or worse for a long, long time!!!

          • Marsbars09

            Yeah, he will be one f*cked up man.

          • Marsbars09

            Worker’s compensation.

          • Marsbars09

            Twits, you’re so crazy!

        • Dr Seuss

          Marlo and Nene in the ring would be awesome!!

          Marlo: “Tell the whole of Atlanta why you don’t speak to me!!!!”

          Marlo stung the queen bee! Bloop!!

      • Marsbars09

        ITA. I just commented in order for Kandi’s marriage to have a shot of success, she must decide whether she’s going to be Todd’s wife or Joyce’s daughter.

        • SAMRA1116

          She’s going to always be her daughter, but Kandi herself need to put a wall up—don’t come in my house, call me on the telephone, call our family or talk about my husband anymore. I’m not having it.

          • Marsbars09

            Samra, when I said “daughter” I meant Kandi appeasing her mother at the expense of Todd and her own happiness.

          • SAMRA1116

            I know, but Kandi knows how to do that. AJ had 7 kids n several baby mommas —she accepted him —this is mostly for show
            MJ don’t like no man in Kandi’s life. Most is for the new show.

      • twifan2

        Todd is going to have to sit Kandi down and tell her what some of HIS boundaries will be. THEN they both need to have a little chat with MJ & ‘discuss'(tell) them with her.

        • Marsbars09

          Hi Twi! Great idea! 🙂

          • twifan2

            Think Kandi will go for? I hope so!
            MJ will not attend! 😀

          • Marsbars09

            Unfortunately I don’t think Kandi will proceed with life without Mommy Dearest’s approval. Remember the episode when Todd & Carmon tried to convince Kandi to simply set up boundaries with her mother? Girl, Kandi was damn near hysterical!

          • twifan2

            RUN! Todd! RUN!!!!!!!

    • Dr Seuss

      There are 6 episodes left. I think the Mama Joyce stuff is dying down and the Nene vs Kenya vs Marlo is heating up.

      • WestCoastFeed

        Good, Kenya is so cunning. And NeNe is such a disaster.

      • RealitySuxx

        BRAVO must REEAALLLYYY be tired of Ms Leakes, to have given Kenya all this ammunition. LMAO

        • Bravo always has a STAR and an Antagonist
          STARS / Antagonist
          Example Lisa is the breakout star with Kylie/Brandi as antogonist then ALL cast gang up

          STARS / Antagonist

          LISA / Kyle, Brandi / ALL gang up
          TERESA / Melissa / ALL gang up
          BETHENNY / Jill / ALL gang up
          LEA BLACK / Marisol / ALL gang up
          VICKI / Lauri/Gretchin / ALL gang up
          NENE /Kim / ALL gang up

          • WestCoastFeed

            And hasn’t everyone tired of that story line by now?

          • twifan2

            Me! Me! ME!!!!!

          • Dr Seuss

            Chris is right but I am so over Bravo pulling the same stunts season after season. Women getting along and having fun works also. When RHOA season 6 started, the women all got along and it enjoyable to watch.

        • Dr Seuss

          That’s exactly my thoughts also. I think Princess Andy thinks, I made these bitches, I can take them out. Nene got a little too big for her thongs and a bit too Hollywood.

  • Marsbars09

    So, Kandi is going to go ahead and marry Todd. I agree with Kandi. Just for her protection, she needs an air tight contract in place. The other thing I’m concerned about is Mama Joyce. I’m sure somewhere along the marriage MJ is going rear her uncouth mouth and act a fool. I believe before Kandi marries, she needs to decide whether she wants to be Todd’s wife or Joyce’s obedient daughter. The two relationships cannot co-exist.

  • Tre’s Twits aren’t Angelic

    I have a family member and his wife who have proven to me over a very long time (like 40 years) that they aren’t people I would put any support in anymore. I mean they’ve been given far too much leaway to correct what they have consistently done that has put me off. There are certain things that are deal breakers. And a couple of years ago, I gave them the heave ho and the ship has left the port and they aren’t on it.
    If Crazy Azz Mama Joyce was my mom and she had consistently done what she does for years and years of time, she would have hit the skids long ago. My energy would go into my child and not to the mother who was so against me. I’d also probably consult some hypnotic regression therapy to understand why the relationship was so negatively impacted.
    I did this with my family members and the clarification was confirmed for me. I didn’t know why it was happening, but it made so much sense after that therapy.
    I keep checking in to see if I should open the door again, and because I trust my intuition, and I keep getting acknowledgement to let the situation remain as it currently is, I follow that lead.
    Sometimes, it’s best to let the sleeping dog, sleep.

    • Marsbars09

      I understand where you’re coming from Twits, and good for you for setting boundaries.
      I’ve learned people have a hard time setting boundaries with family members. They think just because they share the same DNA that gives them the license to mistreat you. I too for years have suffered from that kind of abuse and somewhat still to this day. The difference is I recognize when to keep my distance and limit the amount of time I spend with blood relatives.

  • Bryan

    “I think Kandi needs to get a pre-nup with that old woman, kick her out of her house, and stick her in a old folks home”

    • Marsbars09

      Goddamn! Lawrence looks just like a woman! Is he transgender?

      • Dr Seuss

        I know right. His make-up looks flawless. and those lashes are fierce!!

    • Dr Seuss

      Hi Bryan! LMAO!! Don’t forget her ignorant ass sisters too.

  • SAMRA1116

    Kandi is best to protect her $$$$… She did earn them herself.
    Mama Joyce will need to be INVITED over, don’t pop over anytime she wants.
    Boundaries needs to be mad—Kandi is also accustomed to this treatment.

    • Marsbars09

      Hi Samra! That’s what I was alluding to in my previous comment. Kandi really needs to set boundaries with her mother if she wants a chance at a successful marriage.

  • RealitySuxx

    Pre-nup signed, sealed and delivered .. next – containing Joyce…..but a baby will do that. LOL As soon as Kandi has a baby, Joyce will change her tune – no way will she want to be cut out of all that.

    • Dr Seuss

      Hi RS. Happy Sunday!

      I REALLY hope so cause she’s so damn ridiculous. I nicknamed Mama Joyce Gangsta Boo.

    • pre nup was signed before they left for mexico

      • Dr Seuss

        I believe so also. I heard they eloped in Mexico.

  • Dr Seuss

    Join me tonight for #RHOA liev tweeting and live blogging on All About The Tea.

    • Marsbars09

      I’ll be there!

  • Momma Joyce the STAR and main focus = hence her entire story arc S6 was
    staged story arc – semi scripted. Preplanned antagonist character they
    need for a theme of Kandi spin off wedding show.

  • Mexico is the cliff hanger leading into Kandi’s wedding spin off with
    Momma Joyce the STAR and main focus = hence her entire story arc season
    6 was faked. Preplanned antagonist character they need for a theme of
    Kandi spin off wedding show.

  • #rhoA season finale end of April – only 5 more episodes left and the cliff hanger is ALL ABOUT TODD AND KANDI MARRIAGE

    • RealitySuxx

      Awww…so we won’t get to see the play??

    Phaedra feels that it’s time to question Apollo and Kenya. Gregg
    discloses an issue he has with Peter. Kenya wants to re-do NeNe’s pillow
    talk event with the hope that things will go smoother.

  • March 16, 2014
    The group drives deep into the Mexican jungle for an erotic swimming
    session. Kenya informs Miss Lawrence about her thoughts on Porsha and
    Kordell.
    Later, Kenya selects a few of the women to visit a shaman with her.
    Porsha and Phaedra escape from the craziness by relaxing at the pool.

  • Kenya always seems to be “acting”…… like one would “act” if you are reading a script “cold”
    I truly believe Kenya thinks rhoa is all acting/scripted

    • Dr Seuss

      Definitely a business opportunity. Kenya is no one’s dummy. LOL!

  • twifan2

    I feel kind of bad for Porsha getting ‘integrated’ by Peter, greg, Todd. smh
    Peter needs to stay out of it!
