Kandi Burruss Covers JET Magazine


Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss looks radiant in Spring colors on the newest cover of JET Magazine.

In the issue, Burruss opened up about how she keeps up her credible career as a reality star, singer, songwriter and entrepreneur.

“When I speak about anything on camera I want to accomplish it before we finish taping,” she said of her drive and ambition. “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,” she added.

She also talked about her relationship with her fiancé, Todd Tucker and credits some of her business savvy ways to Tucker.

“I love that Todd is affectionate and relationship-oriented,” said Burruss. “But he’s also a leader and a planner, and because of his production background he makes me a better businesswoman.”

It’s no secret that Burruss’ mother, Joyce Jones, is not supportive of her daughter’s union with Tucker. Mama Joyce gave her thoughts during the interview and admitted,”If they are married and it lasts, I will be the first to apologize.”

Burruss added: “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.” She added, “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.”
