Kandi Burruss is head over heels in love with her fiancé, Todd Tucker, and even though Mama Joyce isn’t too fond of her daughter’s choice of partner, The Real Housewives of Atlanta star is sticking by her man. Kandi has made it abundantly clear that Todd is the guy she wants to marry and spend the rest of her life with, and even though the tension between Mama Joyce and the production professional has been very hard for Kandi to deal with, Todd is here to stay.
On the January 5 episode of RHoA, Mama Joyce said that she thought her daughter was picking Todd over her own family, which felt “like a dagger” in her heart. Kandi listened to her mom, but declared her love for Todd on Instagram on January 6. “My #MCM @todd167,” she wrote along with a picture of her cute man wearing a red leather jacket.
A little investigating confirmed that MCM refers to Man Crush Monday. In other words, Kandi took to Instagram to declare that she has a crush on Todd. Aww! Even though he isn’t looking at the camera in the photo Kandi posted, we must admit that he’s quite a looker!
Still, even with Mama Joyce out of the picture things have been tough for this newly engaged couple. In next week’s episode Todd tells Kandi that he’s considering taking a job that would force him to travel all over the world, something Kandi isn’t exactly thrilled about since the pair is just about to start work on their play, A Mother’s Love. The tears start flowing when Kandi starts to worry that Todd could be using the play as an excuse to stay in Atlanta with Kandi, which could lead him to resent her later.
Since this scene was filmed months ago we’re happy to report that Kandi and her crush worked through this issue, though we don’t know if Todd ended up taking the job.Do you think Kandi and Todd will ever make it to the altar, or do they have too many issues to sort through? Vote below!
