1. Kandi Burruss & Todd Tucker Are Finally Getting Married
A huge congratulation goes to Real Housewives of Atlanta star, Kandi Burruss, for after many months of objection from Mama Joyce, she and Todd Tucker are finally jumping the broom and it is all going down today (April 4). If you are an avid watcher of RHOA (me!) you have seen the turmoil and stress Burruss has gone through for such a joyous occasion, and you also see how much her and Tucker love each other. I wish them both life-long marital bliss! While we all wait for the wedding special to air on Bravo!, you can check out the pictures from the Bachelerette Party below!
P.S. If you haven’t checked out Burress’ A Mother’s Love trailer, watch it here!
