Kandi Burruss May Have Trouble In ParadiseBy: Emily Greene - November 4, 2013
Real Housewives fans were happy to have their Atlanta ladies back.
On Sunday, Season 6 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta premiered, giving just a glimpse of what has been happening since last we saw the ladies.
One surprise for many, including RHOA star Kandi Burruss, is the rumor her fiance, Todd Tucker, has been cheating. In a trailer for Season 6, Burruss’ mother, Mama Joyce, informs her that she heard rumors that Tucker has been out and about, cheating on Burruss.
In the video below, around the 1:30 mark, you see Mama Joyce broach the subject of the cheating rumors. She tells both Tucker and Burress that she’s heard he’s been stepping out with Burruss’ friend Carmen.
Now it’s a well-known fact that Mama Joyce is not a fan of Tucker, and she believes he is only with Burruss for personal gain. Burruss has tried and tried to convince her mother otherwise, but Mama Joyce still believes he isn’t worth Burruss’ time.
Burruss’ response to her mother’s allegations of Tucker being an opportunist, “I wrote ‘No Scrubs’.'” (Burruss is the famous writer of the hit TLC song.)
But is there any truth to the rumor? Burruss’ RHOA costar, Cynthia Bailey, believes it could just be other women wanting what Burruss has. “I think that when you are a successful woman and you have a lot going on, other women are attracted to your man. They’re like, ‘If you want him, maybe I should want him. It’s just the way it is. It’s only a matter of time before there are rumors that get out that say, ‘Oh, so and so said that she was with your man. We all go through that,” said Bailey.
Bailey also believes Burruss should talk it out with Tucker before making any rash decisions. Bailey said, “The best advice I can give to Kandi and to anyone who has been phased with cheating rumors — because I’ve certainly been the victim of it as well — is to just ask the questions. Ask your man what’s going on and just kind of move on.”
And in this world of social media and everyone seeking their 15 minutes of fame, it may be a bit hard to believe that Tucker is cheating on Burruss. Added Bailey, “That’s the beauty of social media: I would get that tweet in two seconds, so it’s kind of hard for these guys to really stray. Because usually the girls that would stray with a married man, or a committed man, they’re going to tell somebody.”
So maybe, just maybe, this is just a rumor. Only time will tell.
