Cirque du Soleil TOTEM Premieres In Atlanta


Congratulations are in order for Real Housewives Of Atlanta star Kandi Burrus who recently announced her engagement to Television Producer Todd Tucker.

Though the pair’s relationship has unfolded on screen during season five of the show, their romance actually blossomed behind-the-scenes while filming the show’s fourth season in 2011.  They met on his birthday during the RHOA infamous trip to Africa (he was a producer on the show) and they have been together ever since.

Tucker, 39, proposed on New Year’s Day (after seeking approval from Burruss’ 10-year-old daughter, Riley) during a New Year’s celebration with friends at the couple’s home in Atlanta, US Weekly reports.

Us Weekly posted Kandi’s first official engagement picture.

Todd picked out this ring based on a ring Kandi actually spotted on a “Housewives” trip.  So he had the ring shipped in from Las Vegas and it’s designed by Gregg Ruth.

So Todd dished that to the magazine that he carried the ring around for three to four months, and then popped the question during a New Year’s Eve celebration shortly after 1AM.

And while RHOA fans may not be totally surprised, Burruss, 36, says she was.

She took to Twitter Tuesday to express thanks for the outpouring of congrats she and Todd received from friends and fans, followed by another message of thanks that read:

“Dear God, I wanna take a minute, not to ask anything from you, but to simply say thank you, for all I have.”

Thanks to everyone that are sending their well wishes! @Todd167 & I appreciate the love from you all!
This is not the first time viewers have seen Kandi fall in love and get engaged on the show.  Viewers watched Burruss’ rocky engagement to former fiancé, Ashley “A.J.” Jewell, unfold during her first season on the show.  Although Kandi’s daughter Riley had a good relationship with AJ, Kandi’s mother did not approve of Kandi marrying a man with so many children from previous relationships.  Unfortunately, the relationship ended tragically when Jewell was killed in October 2009.
Many folks do not believe Todd is sincere in his love for Kandi, but one things for sure, Kandi is smart about her money and she will definitely have an iron clad pre-nup!  Let’s hope for her sake and Riley’s that this is the real thing.  She’s such a sweet girl that deserves happiness.
