Kandi & Todd became Mr. & Mrs. Tucker on April 4th.  Now, their official wedding photo is out.  And that wedding gownis full of dramatics.  Kandi, who sparkled from her tiara to her toes, said, “The whole thing was like a fairy tale!”

And a custom $20,000 Reco Chappele custom wedding gown with a 12-foot train and bottom half made of ostrich feathers is indeed fairy tale like.

The nuptials, which didn’t go down without shade thrown from Mama Joyce, took place at Atlanta’s Le Fais Do-Do event facility in front of 300 guests.  It will air on Kandi’s upcoming wedding spinoff special on Bravo.

Kandi revealed to In Touch Weekly about planning this huge wedding in just a month, “I didn’t know if I was going to be able to pull this all together….I couldn’t wait around hoping things would get better. I just had to do it and hope for the best.”


And Mama Joyce may have had some shady ish to say afterwards, but at the ceremony and reception, the mother of the bride was on her best behavior. Moms told In Touch Weekly“Time will tell if Todd gets my blessing, but if Kandi’s happy, then I need to be happy for her.”

This woman…


Kandi’s bridesmaids–who all wore white–included matron of honor Tamera Wynn, maid of honor Carmon Cambrice(wonder what Mama Joyce had to say about THAT!), former Xscape groupmate Tiny, Fantasia Barrino, Love & Hip Hop Atlanta’s Rasheeda Frost, and RHOA’s Phaedra Parks and Joyce Dallas.

We’ve also learned co-stars NeNe Leakes and Kenya Moore were not at Kandi’s wedding.

And speaking of Fanny….we hear she CUT UP at the reception!

Tabloids were reporting that Fantasia–had allegedly too much to drink–was cursing and using completely inappropriate language throughout her toast.  Kandi was supposedly horrified and left the wedding.

However, Sherri Shepherd–who attended the wedding–revealed today on “The View” a little nugget of info.  She said she’s bound by a confidentiality agreement she had to take a picture with (LOL), but she knows Kandi did NOT leave her wedding.  She was dancing the night away.

Sherri said she was not going to confirm or deny the story about Fantasia (her body language totally confirmed it though), but she posed the question of whether you would allow your bridesmaid to give a toast if you KNOW their behavior changes with alcohol.


*UPDATE* Kandi has now told media that she was NOT offended by Fabtasia’s F-bomb filled wedding speech.  They’ve been friends a long time, and the bride loved it all.

According to sources, Big Sean broke off the engagement to Naya Rivera earlier this week because she was way too controlling in the relationship and would fly into jealous rages — even breaking furniture in his home. She was very insecure in the relationship, due to his studio schedule and him always being on the road and she would say things to emasculate him during arguments such as, “If you don’t listen to what I say, I’ll ruin your career.”

According to TMZ:

We’re told she was suspicious whenever Sean was with other women and  would work herself up into jealous rages … once breaking an expensive lamp during a rampage in his home.

We’re also told Big Sean and Naya went to couples counseling — which apparently worked because Sean realized how much he HATED being a couple … and decided to get the hell out.

Sources close to the couple also tell us that Naya was pissed when Sean decided to get out of the relationship, so her reps leaked the story to Star Magazine that Big Sean had cheated on her to create a sob story.  She also tweeted that he stole jewelry from her house, to paint him as a thief, when he actually took back a Rolex watch that he gave her as a gift. The watch was the first piece of jewelry he bought when he made it big.

We are told that the relationship was bliss before the engagement, but with any relationship, over time, you get to know the real person. Big Sean takes the concepts of family and “forever” very serious so he decided that getting married may not be the best decision to make at this time. He’s also hurt by what has transpired because he was deeply in love with Naya and never would have expected things to turn out this way.

As far as the two getting back together, after the tweets, planting stories and accusations of thief, it’s highly unlikely.

Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned! In 2010, Naya was accused of keying Glee co-star Mark Salling’s car after flying into a jealous rage and accusing him of cheating with other women.
