RHOA: Kandi Covers JET / Talks Todd…And Mama Joyce

b26774fd119703364c4f7ffdcb94b61b RHOA: Kandi Covers JET / Talks Todd...And Mama Joyce

Season six of The Real Housewives Of Atlanta has been the show’s most action-packed yet — thanks largely to the narrative of Kandi Burruss, boyfriend-turned-fiance Todd Tucker, and of course, Mama Joyce.

Viewers of the Bravo hit have watched with shock, awe, and open jaws as the singer and businesswoman has tried to navigate through the drama that is her personal life.

Still, in pressing on and promoting the upcoming DVD release of her aptly titled musical ‘A Mother’s Love’, Burruss styles and profiles a-front of JET magazine’s April 2014 issue.

Peep the cover above and excerpts below…

On Her Hustle Factor

“When I speak about anything on camera I want to accomplish it before we finish taping. I am a ‘do what I say’ person. I want people to know I’m not a [phony].  I hate when people on reality shows mention how they want to do this and that, but you never hear of it again”

On Fiance, Todd Tucker:

“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.”

On Mama Joyce:

“When my mother was younger it was all about getting a man to be a provider. She leans toward a man who is financially more well-off than the dude who is just a good guy. I’ve dated guys who are more successful than me, and my mom is like, no matter what he does wrong, you have to work it out.”


The latest issue of JET is on newsstands now.

Singer, songwriter, reality star, and entrepreneur, Kandi Burrus certainly wears many hats.

This week saw Burruss debut a snippet of new song ‘Let Them Love’. For fans of ‘Housewives’, the cut very much plays into Kandi’s current “storyline” on the show (see: Todd, Mama Joyce) – a fact which us wondering if this is smart or tacky.

In any case, set for release on January 21st (via her own imprint, Kandi Koated Entertainment), you can get a taste of what the talented star is serving up below.

Quote of the Day: Bow Wow Slams Kandi Burruss, Labels Her ‘Wack’ For Declining Invite To ‘So So Def’ Anniversary Celebration

49c24830d5c42de04b5cf668d8dcdec0 Quote of the Day:  Bow Wow Slams Kandi Burruss, Labels Her Wack For Declining Invite To So So Def Anniversary Celebration

Well it looks like ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ star Kandi Burruss shouldn’t expect a wedding gift from rapper Bow Wow, if his recent comments are anything to go by.

For, as fans know, hip hop producer extraordinaire Jermaine Dupri is set to be honored in his native Atlanta for two decades worth of contributions to the music industry via his ‘So So Def’ imprint.

While many of the roster’s occupants appeared to have jumped at the opportunity to honor their mentor at the ‘So So Def All-Star Anniversary Concert‘, a certain former Xscape member appeared to have other plans – namely launching her own ‘Ladies Night’ tour.

News of such sent Bow Wow on a Facebook rant – one that saw him label Burruss as ‘wack’ (amongst other things) for her expected absence.  See his fiery quote below:

Role Models : Evelyn Lozada, Kandi Burruss, Tamar Braxton & Chrissy Lampkin Join Forces For ‘VIBE’

81cfda86a9aeeedf56a7836d4058fbeb Role Models : Evelyn Lozada, Kandi Burruss, Tamar Braxton & Chrissy Lampkin Join Forces For VIBE

Love them or hate them, Reality TV stars are hot property in today’s world- turning otherwise fame seeking hopefuls  into multi-media darlings.

So, in honor of their impact, VIBE called on Atlanta’s Kandi Burruss, Basketball ‘wife’ Evelyn Lozada, Love & Hip Hop star Chrissy Lampkin and Braxton sister Tamar for their June/July 2012 SEXY ISSUE.

Peep excerpts from their spread before it hits news stands below:

VIBE: Star Jones started a petition,lashing out against women and violence on reality TV. What’s your reaction?
Evelyn: [Bursts into laughter] I think she’s going to have to get a whole lot of names. Actually, I like the petition and I like the controversy because I’ve learned controversy is good.

But I think she’s irrelevant. And she’s using our coattails to get relevant again. Nobody gives a f*ck about her.

Do any of you see yourselves as role models?

Chrissy: I guess if somebody is afraid to speak their mind and wanna stand up for themselves, then yes. I want people to realize that they can have whatever they want.

You can be respected in your relationship exactly the way you want to be. It’s up to you to go get it.

Some of the stuff is a little heavy, but you’re not going to be exposed to crazy situations in life just by watching reality TV. You can go to the corner store and see crazy shit going on. You can go to school and see crazy shit.Don’t put it all on me.

Kandi: You would never imagine how many people come up to me on the street: “How could you be a part of that? It’s a disgrace to Black people.” I’m on a show called Real Housewives and I’m not married so I guess I represent single mothers out there who are handling their business and trying to take things to the next level.

So when people say, “You shouldn’t be on the show, it’s like, “Well, who do you want to go on there? More people you don’t like?”

So you’re saying the producers orchestrated the violence?

Chrissy: Absolutely. They would go as far as telling the new girl, “Chrissy thinks she’s Queen Bee around here so we need you to step up because nobody here has a strong enough personality.

We need you to shut it down.” They were feeding people this negative energy from the door. I have no reason to lie.

Preview: ‘The Kandi Factory’ (Real Housewives Of Atlanta Spin-Off)

The runway success of Bravo’s  ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ has seen much of the cast try their hand other ventures. However, for Kandi Burrus the “reality” pie is one she clearly has a sweet-tooth for, as she is gearing up for the premiere of her spin-off series ‘The Kandi Factory’.

Set to debut on March 4th, the show will see the former Xscape singer give two protégés, with no music industry experience, the chance to fly to Atlanta where she will write an original song for each based on their personal experiences. Thereafter, the amateurs will be coached her team of “experts” – comprised of a producer, choreographer and stylist – to master the key elements that make a pop star.

The winner will see their song and accompanying video produced and released by The Kandi Factory.

A reach? Perhaps. However, we applaud Ms. Burrus’ hustle. More power to her.

Will you be watching?
