UPDATE: I REALLY enjoyed Kandi and Todd's Bravo spin-off, Kandi's Wedding! I LOVED seeing all of the drama that lurked behind the pictures I posted months ago. If you're feeling nostalgic, peruse through the post to get a recap of all the festivities and be a part of the select few who know what Todd and Kandi's compatibility chart says about their relationship!
UPDATE (4/1714): As most of you know, the shower rod of LHHATl's Mimi Faust was the scene stealing star of her new "film!" Now everyone wants to hang on a shower rod, including Kandi from RHOA!
Side Note: MediaTakeOut.com just received word that MiMi and Nikko are flying out to LOS ANGELES as we speak - to FINALIZE THEIR DEAL with Vivid Video. According to our snitch who is EXTREEEEEEE-EMELY CLOSE to Mimi, the pair have yet to SIGN THE FINAL DEAL with the pron company.
The insider explained, "Vivid wanted to give then $100K, but they held out. [MiMi knew] how big the tape was, so she waited until all the buzz about it came out, and then she made the deal with Vivid."
So what is the deal for MiMi. You may need to SIT DOWN before you read this. MediaTakeOut.com confirmed that MiMi will receive a GUARANTEED $5 MILLION from the sale of the tape. And we're told if the tape sells more than a MILLION COPIES (which it is expected to), she will get 50% of the sales on any copy sold after the million.

UPDATE (4/11/14): OMG, that face is PRICELESS, Mama Joyce! To even attempt to crack a smirk probably would have been too painful for her! So, if you thought Mama Joyce worked through her issues with Todd ...YOU'RE OBVIOUSLY WRONG!!!! According to radaronline.com:
Kandi Burruss tied the knot with Todd Tucker in a romantic wedding filmed for reality TV on April 4, despite the objections of her mother, Mama Joyce, who exclusively told RadarOnline.com that she begrudgingly attended the wedding and completely ignored the groom the whole time!
The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Mama Joyce has made no secret about her distaste for Burruss’ fiancé, but on her daughter’s big day, she says, she kept her mouth shut.
“I didn’t really pay any attention to him,” Mama Joyce told Radar, confirming that she completely ignored Tucker during the wedding. “We didn’t talk.”
Outspoken in her disapproval of her daughter’s choice for a husband, Mama Joyce said “I was very nice!” despite her bad feelings.
“It was her decision to make to marry him and she says she’s happy and she didn’t see anything wrong with him so she did it,” the reality TV star said.
Mama Joyce, who is managed by the Tara Thomas agency, told Radar that she did think Burruss, 37, was a “beautiful” bride and that the whole event was wonderful.
“Everyone was very nice and there weren’t any fights,” she revealed.
But Mama Joyce did take the time to slam her RHOA co-star Cynthia Bailey, telling Radar, “Besides what Cynthia says, our family doesn’t fight all the time. It was a very classy wedding and everybody had a nice time.”
As for the future of Burruss and Tucker’s marriage, Mama Joyce told Radar that she isn’t expecting it to last for a long time.
“Time will tell, but I only pray that I’m wrong and that they do last,” she said. “But I don’t see how they can.”
Centrictv.com is reporting Mama Joyce is toying with the idea of penning a tell-all book, which will likely include details about her daughter's decision to marry Todd. She told toofab,
"People been asking me about one, so I think I will write one."
Write a book for what...it was on tv! Sheesh, this blog post is a book in itself!!!
While Mama Joyce is busy being mad, Kandi and Todd be like...

UPDATE (4/9/14): According to InTouch Weekly:
The Real Housewives of Atlanta star tells In Touch, “The whole thing was like a fairy tale!”
Their nuptials took place at Atlanta’s Le Fais Do-Do event facility in front of 300 guests. Kandi — who really knows how to make an entrance — emerged from behind a wall of ostrich-feather fans in a custom $20,000 Reco Chapple gown with a 12-foot train.
“I didn’t know if I was going to be able to pull this all together,” Kandi admits to In Touch, revealing that she organized the entire ceremony in just a month. “I couldn’t wait around hoping things would get better. I just had to do it and hope for the best.”
Luckily she wasn’t disappointed. Kandi’s mother, Joyce, has called Todd “an opportunist” in the past and accused him of cheating after he and Kandi got engaged in January 2013. But at the ceremony and reception, the mother of the bride was on her best behavior. Joyce confesses to In Touch, “Time will tell if Todd gets my blessing, but if Kandi’s happy, then I need to be happy for her.”
Kandi’s bridesmaids included matron of honor Tamera Wynn, maid of honor Carmon Cambrice, rapper T.I.’s wife Tameka ‘Tiny’ Harris, Fantasia Barrino, Love & Hip Hop Atlanta’s Rasheeda Frost, and RHOA’s Phaedra Parks and Joyce Dallas. The entire wedding party wore white.
Check out pics below from necolebitchie.com, InTouch and allaboutthetea.com.
RHOA cast mate, Phaedra Parks, Fashion Queens' Derek J, and American Idol winner Fantasia and her date are shown below. And Kandi's in her reception dress in the following picture with Tamar and Vince, Lil Wayne's ex-wife - Toya Wright, and Sherri Shepherd.
UPDATE (4/9/14): OMG!!!! Kandi's wedding is the gift that keeps giving to a gossip blog!!!! You will NEVER guess what soon to be ex-friend, Fantasia, said at Kandi's wedding reception. Prepare to *clutch pearls*!!!!!
Via RadarOnline reports:
According to a new report from the National Enquirer, the reality star’s April 4 ceremony was turned into a nightmare when guests were left shocked by Fantasia’s foul mouth, leaving a fellow bridesmaid to rip the microphone right from her hands.
“Kandi was horrified!” an eyewitness told the magazine.
“She and Fantasia are close, but this may ruin their friendship.”
The wedding was a blow-out event, with two live lions greeting guests as they arrived and Burruss’ father, a minister, performing the ceremony.
But Fantasia’s speech put a damper on the classy event, attended by Burruss’ fellow RHOA co-stars Porsha Stewart, Phaedra Parks and Cynthia Bailey, along with celebrities Keshia Knight Pulliam and Sherri Shephard, who were all left with jaws dropped by her vulgar toast.
“Fantasia started by saying, ‘Kandi, you are my m*therf**kin’ friend and I love you,’” the source told the Enquirer.
“Then she called Kandi the ‘realest b*tch I know’ and rambled on about her big butt. Todd was furious, and the other bridesmaids got Fantasia to sit down. Thank goodness!”
Come to find out centrictv.com is reporting that Kandi said she was not angry at all, as "sources" tried to report. A rep for the star said she was not horrified, in fact, she loved Fantasia's speech and the two had a blast at the wedding.

UPDATE (4/8/14): According to mediatakeout.com
As most of y'all know by now - Kandi and Todd were OFFICIALLY MARRIED over the weekend, but it almost didn't happen. MediaTakeOut.com spoke with a person IN THE KNOW who told us that Kandi and Todd had a DISAGREEMENT about the pre-nup . . . and up until the day BEFORE THE WEDDING, they hadn't resolved it.
But Kandi was TOUGH . . . and she stayed STRONG, telling Todd that either he SIGNED IT . . . or he can kick rocks. Eventually Todd signed the paperwork and they were married. Here are the terms of their pre-nup:
1. Kandi gets to keep the house, her cars, and any and all assets that she had before they got married.
2. In the event that Kandi dies, all of her assets go to daughter Riley, and not to Todd.
3. If the marriage ends before 5 years Todd gets NOTHING. If the marriage ends between 5-10 years, Todd gets $100K, and after 10 years, Todd gets $300K.
4. The couple agree to have separate accounts. Any money and any assets that aren't in accounts with Todd's name ONLY - belong to Kandi 100% in the event of a divorce.
Why would Todd have a problem with this??? Read further for Momma Joyce's thoughts, details on the couple's wedding and pre-wedding celebrations, and find out what I think drew this couple together!
UPDATE (4/7/14): According to necolebitchie.com:
This weekend, Real Housewives of Atlanta’s star Kandi Burruss and her fiancé Todd got hitched in a beautiful ceremony in Atlanta in front of family and friends, and even though Kandi’s mother didn’t hold up the wedding with her shenanigans, afterward she had a lot to say during an interview with Too Fab.
When she was asked if she objected to the wedding, she responded:
I had no reason to bite my tongue. I’m not gonna be the one to stop her from jumping into the fire. I tried, I did all that ahead of time. Too late for me to pull out of it then, not gonna make a fool outta myself!
Long as she’s happy, that’s the one that has to be happy. Doesn’t make no difference if I’m happy or not, she’s the one that has to live with him. I did everything I could do. If she’s jumping in the river with sharks, she’s gonna get chewed up.
It’s not about me, whether I’m right or wrong. People show you their best when you’re dating them, so if she’s seeing the best now, the worst is yet to come.
I can’t wait till you see the wedding pictures … to see how beautiful I was. [<----- face palm]
She also revealed that she actually spoke at the ceremony and said some pretty nice things:
I said, ‘She looks very happy. I’m happy that she’s happy and I hope that she continues to be happy. I hope she’s always as happy as she was last night.’
That may be hard for Kandi when her mom is spilling tea about how Todd didn’t want to sign a prenup until a day before the wedding! She dished:
I got a little pissed at the bridegroom the night before this wedding. He kind of held up on signing the prenup and didn’t come to the rehearsal dinner because he didn’t want to sign it.
His mom said she didn’t see no reason for him to have to sign because they were in love. He was the one who didn’t have a damn thing, but that’s another story. But from what I understand, he did sign.
Meanwhile, Kandi remains unbothered by her mom’s antics. The newlywed is still basking in that post-wedding afterglow, which unfortunately will not include a real honeymoon. But for a good reason: Todd’s making his coin!
Kandi revealed on her IG that Todd’s production company is setting up a show so they won’t be doing any honeymooning until next weekend, and even that will be a quickie.
Good afternoon! I woke up feeling blessed & highly favored this morning & I hope you did too! I just wanted to say thank you for all of your well wishes prayers for @todd167 & I. I know people are asking why am I on IG when I should be on my honeymoon. Well @todd167′s has to go out of town to set up a show his company is producing for a network that’s just starting production this week. We’re gonna do a quick getaway next weekend.
Although I would have loved to take one of those long honeymoons & fly out the day after the wedding, anyone that watched #RHOA knows that I wanted Todd to produce his own shows & work for his self & that dream is coming true so I’m not complaining! So send him some love & congrats on his show being picked up as well! #EvenThoughItMeansHeWillBeInLAfor5months….
According to Sister 2 Sister, the couple will star in a wedding spin-off later this year.

UPDATE (4/4/13): It's official, Kandi is literally a REAL Housewife Of Atlanta now!!! According to In Touch Weekly:
A rep for the Real Housewives of Atlanta star confirms to In Touch that Kandi and TV producer Todd Tucker wed in a beautiful ceremony in Atlanta on April 4.
“This is one of the best days of my life! I never imagined that I would marry my best friend. Todd’s been that to me,” Kandi exclusively tells In Touch. “And to have just had the wedding of my dreams, it’s all been so beautiful. Now it’s time to party!”
The couple met in 2011, during filming of the fourth season of the hit Bravo reality series and got engaged January 2013. Kandi has one daughter, Riley, 11, from a previous relationship. This is the first marriage for Todd.
TI's wife, Tameka "Tiny" Harris, posted a picture from the rehearsal dinner the evening before the wedding. As you can see, the bridesmaids shown in the picture do NOT include any Real Housewives. Joining Tiny are American Idol winner, Fantasia and Rasheeda from Love and Hip Hop Atlanta. Looking good ladies!!! You see the camera crew in the background, right!!! I just knew Phaedra would be a bridesmaid, makes you wonder...will Phaedra return to the show next season???? Maybe she was in the bathroom :o)

UPDATE (4/3/14): RHOA Kandi Burruss's fiance, Todd Tucker, celebrated his up-coming nuptials the way most men do ...with his boys and some exposed booty poppin females!! Now why pictures exist is beyond me!!! Regardless of how many sex toys you sell, I know Kandi don't wanna see any parts of this before her wedding Friday. Then again the pictures probably exist because there may have been a film crew there. According to bossip.com:
Todd, along with the other “house-husbands” and LHHATL reality star Kirk Frost, got it poppin’ for his bachelorparty with a few scantily-clad, p-poppin’ pole huggers at Bar One in ATL.
Click on the pics in the photo gallery to see how the men turnt up!!!
According to necolebitchie.com:
After tons of drama this season, Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss will finally jump the broom and marry her fiancé Todd Tucker this Friday, April 4.
With the big day fast approaching, the reality star and budding businesswoman gathered up family, close friends and the RHOA cast for a bridal shower and bachelorette party yesterday.
During the day, the bridal shower was pretty PG but by night, things turned up when the girls hit Compound Nightclub and later the strip club where they were entertained by a midget stripper. Housewives co-star Phaedra Parks was in attendance, as were friends Carmon, Tiny, Shekinah and Rasheeda. Despite side-eyeing her daughter’s pending nuptials to Todd Tucker, Mama Joyce was also there to support Kandi.
The contrast between Todd and Kandi's pre-wedding celebrations, tho!

Although people question the authenticity of reality TV, it’s quite easy to sense what’s authentic and what’s blatant shock value material! Kandi is a Taurus, and a Taurus woman isn't concerned with grabbing the spotlight. So this means Kandi doesn't have to resort to the overly dramatic antics...she's comfortable being her true self. I've been reading this book entitled Friends on a Rotten Day – The Astrology of Friendships. It’s a very accurate description of the various traits of our girlfriends based on their zodiac signs. This is what it said about Taurus females –
She wants the best for herself, and doesn't need to collect personal kudos! – You think you know Kandi’s achievements, but believe me, you have no idea…the girl is a beast!
“She doesn’t feel like she needs to be saved by men.” – Kandi is not looking for a sponsor, she sponsors herself! As RHOA cast mate, Lawrence, would say – “She knows how to make a coin!”
“You’ll very rarely get her to change her mind when she thinks she’s right.” – That’s why she can endure Mama Joyce’s wrath, Kandi’s gonna do what Kandi wants to do!
“Normally she has great people instincts, but she’ll push them aside if she’s dazzled by a seductive charmer with a winning smile and handsome features…” - Uh oh!
Now the last trait is a little concerning because we all have seen Todd’s smile and natural charisma. But I think Kandi knows what she’s up against. When I heard her tell Todd that they could be a power couple together on a RHOA episode, everything made sense. She has a vision about what they can accomplish together, and the play, A Mother’s Love, was just the beginning. A Taurus’ soul craves security, in the form of possessions and money. Todd’s a Leo, so he’s looking for what he can get out of life for himself. So, I think they both see opportunity in each other, but I wouldn't call them opportunists. I would just say that they’re “doing them!” Unfortunately, this comes with a price, as seen in their compatibility chart.
Ambition and large scale enterprise are the main recurring positive themes in their compatibility chart. However, the negative recurring theme is separation! I selected a few aspects with traits that are repeated a number of times in their chart. Let’s take a look!
Kandi Burruss – May 17, 1976 – TAURUS
Todd Tucker – August 4, 1973 - LEO
Todd’s Moon squares Kandi’s Saturn. Kandi discourages, limits, frustrates and delays Todd's efforts and progress, disregarding Todd's feelings. Kandi's duties and responsibilities will discourage or depress Todd. This aspect is not good for marriage. Kandi will tend to nag and will be too critical. This can be a source of misunderstanding and disagreement. Kandi demands much attention from Todd and is hard to please. This will try the patience of Todd. Todd will have to learn patience and forbearance in this association. In marriage there may be troubles with other members of the family which threaten marital harmony.
Shout Out to Mama Joyce!!!!
Todd’s Sun squares Kandi’s Uranus. Kandi's unpredictability keeps Todd "up in the air". Kandi will resent the influence of Todd and rebel against any authority Todd shows. Cooperation seldom is achieved. This aspect often causes separations or a spasmodic association. Unless they both are poised and self-disciplined, a close association is not likely to be satisfying. There may be violent reactions. Kandi resists Todd and both are impatient and rebellious toward each other.
Todd’s Moon conjuncts Kandi’s Uranus. This aspect can indicate a spontaneous and magnetic attraction and sometimes an unconventional one. It arouses romantic feelings, but unless there are many aspects to bind the two, they may be changeable or fickle toward each other. This aspect has the suggestion of infatuation or fascination that will be temporary, but if the association can become permanent, this aspect stimulates a continuing romantic appeal. In friendships this association is apt to be spasmodic or sporadic. Attachments may not be lasting.
Kandi’s Saturn sextiles Todd’s Pluto. This aspect can aid planning together and uniting efforts for large-scale enterprises. It stimulates the ability to make good use of experience.
Todd’s Saturn trines Kandi’s Uranus. This aspect aids the industry and progressiveness of the two. Kandi's new ideas can unite with Todd's experience and caution for cooperative efforts toward a constructive goal.
These last two goal-oriented aspects are acknowledged by the couple in the following excerpt taken from a Creative Loafing interview posted at clatl.com on November 26, 2013.
Well, obviously that word "opportunist" has been thrown around. How do you react to that when you hear that word, Todd?
Todd: The crazy thing is I really don't react to it because it doesn't apply to me. People say 'opportunist' and it's like, what opportunity am I taking from her to advance myself? I'm from the TV world; I'm not from the music world. So it's not like she's opening doors for me to do my next album or managing me. Moves that I make in TV, she doesn't have those connections to pick up the phone and say, 'Greenlight my man's show.' I'm out there pitching my work and doing my thing; so that opportunist word, I don't feel like it applies at all.
What would you consider to be Todd's greatest strength, Kandi?
Kandi: He definitely knows how to make things happen. If I have an idea or a dream or something that I want to do, he knows how to put things in motion. People can say what they want about [him being an] 'opportunist' - and that irks the hell out of me because I definitely needed him to help make this musical happen. He didn't even want to do this; I wanted to do it and he figured out how to put it together. This is a big production, and obviously production is his strong point because he knows how to put the crew together. He knows how to run a ship. So for me, he's the perfect person as far as being a team.
And as far as family, I notice that every single day he's talking to his mom all day too, so he loves his mother as much as I love mine. And most women want a man that loves his mother, because they always say if a man loves his mother he's going to truly love you.
Disclaimer: I do not have the birth times of Kandi and Todd, and having birth times enhances the accuracy of the assessment. And I'm not 100% sure I have the correct birth date for Todd. If anyone can confirm, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for reading. Blessings!
