When Tom Joyner says you’re the hardest working woman in show business, it really means something. But he’s right to give Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member Kandi Burruss the title. During the show’s run, Burruss has released new music, produced a song for former castmaste Kim Zolciak, done a musical, created a sex toys line gotten married to fiancee Todd Tucker, and shot a wedding special, all while dealing the drama of her disapproving mother.
Despite all the trouble with Mama Joyce, Burruss is now officially a newlywed. She says she’s enjoying the moment.
“It feels amazing like everyday that I can say something like ‘Yeah, my husband’s there,’ Burrus says. “I get the biggest kick out of it. I crack up.”
The former BET producer turned reality show star was initially reluctant to sign the pre-nup Burruss required, something that obviously didn’t go down well with Mama Joyce who was already giving him the side-eye.
“He always said that he would sign it,” Burruss tells the Tom Joyner Morning Show. “After he met with his attorney, they brought some up that they thought was unfair. But it wasn’t anything to do with the money part or him leaving or I’m leaving. I think my attorney added some things like “Upon death’ what would normally be in a will. So it wasn’t about the money. They had added some stuff.”
As for the wedding special, get ready for some fireworks. And not the ones that are displayed in the sky.
“I get along with his mama great. She’s super nice,” Burruss says of her new mother-in-law.
But how do the two moms get along? Unsurprisingly, they don’t.
“Ummm, not so great. Our wedding special is going to be off the chain with his mama and my mama.”
As for Burruss’ elaborate wedding gown custom-made by Rico Shapiro, she says reserve your judgment until the special airs.
“I know a lot of people had opinions on it but you did not see the whole dress.”
