Kandi Burruss is putting her foot down, finally. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star stopped by Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live and spoke to host Andy Cohen about the current state of her marriage, especially her relationship with Mama Joyce.
While she is currently settling into newlywed life, she’s still dealing with the fall out from her wedding, the prenup drama and her mom. Here are the highlights:
On her prenup with Todd:
This is the issue. I did buy the house. He pays the bills. As far as the house itself [I own it].[...]But he doesn’t even want the house so I don’t want people to think, ‘Oh he’s trying to get the house,’ because he doesn’t even want the house. It’s just the fact that when you get divorced, sometimes it can be a long, dragged out process. I remember talking to Bethenny [Frankel] recently and she was saying how she hated the fact — she had a pre-nup — but they didn’t have any term where he had to move out so they were still in the same house for a long time. That’s why attorneys try and put those stipulations in.
[Posted on Twitter] Reading tweets & people say I’m unfair with the prenup but if I didn’t do the prenup, & Lord forbid we divorced & I had to give half of everything, the same people would tweet me calling me stupid….Todd didn’t even get his attorney until 2 days before the wedding. He & I had already talked about what we thought was fair & I thought we were on the same page.
Our prenup never said if he got sick I would leave him. Todd was just saying that its possible I could leave him with nothing if he got sick
On Mama Joyce:
Well, basically my mother and I always have conversations. People think I don’t say anything to her and that’s just not true.[...]I say things all the time, but she doesn’t always receive it. Whether or not she receives it…we do what we wanna do. Now the argument last week between [Todd's] mom and my mom, I did not allow her to come to the house one time when I felt like she was gonna try to come over to the house and make Todd uncomfortable. She’s been holding a grudge about it ever since. It’s not that she can’t come to my house, it’s just that I didn’t want her to come if she was gonna have an attitude or be saying negative things or not speaking.
On being currently estranged from her mom:
Honestly, we go through those moments all the time. We stop talking for days at a time. Like, right now, we haven’t been talking for a couple days. It’s something about my dad. It’s silly to me. It gets to be petty sometimes so to me it’s just, okay, we just need a break.[...]Apparently she must be waiting on me to call her. She’s never wrong. regardless of what is said, she never sees her part in the situation. She’ll always make it seem like I’m just wrong so we’ll go days ’til I call.
On if her mom and Todd’s mom will ever get along:
I hope so. One day. Todd’s mom is really upset right now. She doesn’t like the things my mom has said about her on the show because she really didn’t know those things.[She called his mother a streetwalker and his father a pimp.] She’s really upset about that.
Let me say, that’s not true about his mom. I just felt like when my mom said it, his dad wasn’t there to defend himself so as soon as she said it, that’s what stood out to me. A lot of times my mom and I go back and forth and it just goes in one ear and out the other because I don’t hold onto any of that.
