Kandi-JET

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.”

Those ‘Fresh Prince Of Bel Air’ syndication checks may continue to line the pockets of the show’s stars 18 years after it wrapped, yet that hasn’t halted the hustle of Tatyana Ali.

There, she dished on her upcoming movie ‘November Rules’, as well new music. Perhaps, most interestingly though, the 35-year-old revealed that she was glad when ‘The Fresh Prince’ wrapped.

‘Tasty’ temptress Kelis is looking to give fans something new to taste as she serves up new music alongside a new foray into television.

Indeed, with her 6th studio album “FOOD” set to blast onto the scene on the heels of its first single and video “Jerk Ribs,” Kelis is looking to turn this reignited buzz to boil with a new show on the Cooking Channel called ‘Saucy and Sweet’.

“The show, called “Saucy and Sweet,” will premiere on the channel Feb. 26 and will feature the singer’s culinary creations — “food with attitude,”.

Her foray into TV precedes Kelis’ “FOOD” album, which is due April 21 as her first release on indie label Ninja Tune. Produced by TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek, the album exudes its culinary theme in the tracklist, with “Jerk Ribs” joined by “Breakfast,” “Cobbler,” “Fish Fry” and “Biscuits ‘n’ Gravy.”

“Saucy and Sweet”, which will air at 8:30 p.m. ET on Wednesdays exclusively on The Cooking Channel, will see the ‘Milkshake’ singer give a bit more to bring the boys to the yard.

Will Smith is undoubtedly one of the Hollywood’s most bankable stars.  However, what fans shouldn’t bank on, is seeing the Oscar-nominated beau in the sequel to his hit film ‘Independence Day’.

Indeed, the film – which has grossed nearly a billion dollars worldwide since its 1996 release – is being eyed for a redo by Fox, according to Deadline.  The blockbuster film won’t be, as of time reporting, seeing an appearance from Big Willie.

Via Deadline:

“…director Roland Emmerich and co-writer and producer Dean Devlin are going to have to take on those Earth-leveling aliens without Will Smith. I’m told reliably that Smith informed the studio that he won’t be joining in on a sequel that the filmmakers hope to have in theaters for July 4 weekend, 2016. That marks the 20th anniversary of the 1996 original that grossed $811 million worldwide…”.
