Kandi Said She Told Todd She’d Have His Back When He Quit His Job
Are you a fan of OWN’s series “Black Love”? We happen to love the show, which highlights black couples, many in the entertainment industry discussing the intersection of work and love lives, and roles at home. They admit that knowing when to turn off the business brain and transition to home life is a constant battle. The latest season features Kenny and Jessica Burns, Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker and more. A new episode airs tonight, but we’ve got an exclusive clip for you now. In the clip below Kandi talks about being all in when she’s in love and how she told Todd she’d have his back when he quit his job. Watch the clip to see what happens:
Would you take a leap of faith like that? We’re just glad it worked out. We love us some Kandi!
Episode: Money, Power, Respect airs Friday, November 22 (8 p.m. – 9 p.m. ET/PT) on OWN
Kandi, 43, previously spoke on getting a surrogate after having difficulty getting pregnant.
“You know how we all just think it’s easy?” said Kandi to ESSENCE. “You’re going to get pregnant whenever you feel like it?” she asked rhetorically, laughing. “For years and years, I was on birth control [and I] didn’t even know that I didn’t need it anymore.”
She also revealed on RHOA that she has two frozen girl embryos ready to use so this baby will presumably be a baby girl.
Todd and Kandi already share 3-year-old son Ace. Kandi is also mom to 17-year-old Riley and Todd has an older daughter Kaela, 22.
Happy birthday Kandi Burruss! Todd Surprises Kandi With A Luxury Car
Todd Tucker is so sweet to his hard-working wife, Kandi. He just surprised her with her dream car (he thinks). In a recent video posted to Kandi’s youtube channel, Riley Burruss records Todd explaining why and how he knew to surprised Kandi with a brand new Bently truck before her May 17th birthday.
She wants one, but don’t know which one. Rather invest it in something else…which is totally the way we roll. But, sometimes you have to treat yourself.
Todd chose a crispy white version of the truck for Kandi to stunt in.
Peep how Kandi’s completely taken aback when she realizes what her birthday gift really is.
How sweet! In more good Burruss news, Riley made the honor roll at school. Nice way to end her senior year!
The co-founder of Old Lady Gang dressed in a suave suit as he posed alongside Burruss, who kept her hair in a simple bob and wore a shimmery multi-colored dress.
“ISSA COUPLE! #TheTuckers lookin’ good for New Years! #BoodUP #RHOA,” a “Real Housewives of Atlanta” fan account captioned the festive photo taken at the Hennessy Black Beautiful Bosses dinner on Dec. 31
Several fans remarked on how Tucker ditched the beard he sported when he went to the UNCF Mayor’s Masked Ballearlier this fall in favor of a low-shaved goatee. It made him look much more debonair.
“Alright now Todd looking like a snack.”
“Todd is looking extremely suave Suit, different shapes facial hair to expose his cheekbones. Good look #kandibewinningoutchea.”
“@iph0neshawtyyy Todd looks like Martin Lawrence back in the Bad Boys days.”
“Pleaseeeeee tell me I’m NOT the ONLY one zoom in on Todd WOW, 2019 thank you..”
Others couldn’t even recognize him.
“Todd……. doesn’t look like Todd.”
“That dont look like todd”
“Who is that young Man you with Kandi??? I’m telling Todd!!”
“Harpo who dis man??”
“Lol that do not look like him.”
“Omg Todd!!! I thought that was someone else y’all look great!!!!!”
Tucker’s come-up with his looks comes after an episode of “RHOA” that aired Dec. 30 showing Burruss confronting her mother, Mama Joyce, about her renewed tension with her husband.
While chatting with Porsha Williams last year, Joyce said of Tucker that Burruss “took a lemon and made lemonade.”
When addressing how upset the remark made Tucker, Mama Joyce told Burruss, “I meant it as a compliment.”
“If they said you went from lemon to lemonade, I’m glad that lemon chose me!” she added. “Whoever got with you, if they a lemon, they couldn’t have got with you. If they a lemon, and you made lemonade, they couldn’t have picked a damn better lemon!”
Burruss, who noted Tucker was making six figures, explained her mom’s comment was a backhanded compliment. Then, Joyce exclaimed, “well, he wasn’t hot before he got with you.”
The pair visited with Tucker later in the episode, and Joyce was able to explain she had no ill-will against him. Instead, she said she was touched by the fact that Tucker took in Burruss’ teenage daughter Riley Burruss as his own.
“I just hope y’all will be together forever, loving each other and being the best partners y’all can possibly be because y’all got it going on,” Mama Joyce admitted.
The apology put the family back on track to being a happy one after Mama Joyce previously claimed Tucker was an opportunist even after he wed Burruss in 2014.
