Kandi Burruss' Future Boyfriends Must Pass Daughter's Test
Riley, 8, gets the final say in her mom's love life.
For now, the only action The Real Housewives of Atlanta's Kandi Burruss is getting is talking about sex during Kandi Koated Nights. But once the single mom is ready to end her year-long celibacy promise, she's okay with introducing a new man in her life to daughter Riley right from the get-go.
"My daughter said that when I bring someone into my life she wants to meet them when they're just my friend," Kandi tells Urblife. "I know a lot of people say you shouldn't bring people around your kids, but we have a very open relationship, and I've vowed to never date someone she doesn't really like or that can't have a good relationship with my child. She says she can tell if someone is genuinely nice to children and they like them, or they're just being nice to her to get in good with me. She doesn't want to have someone around us that's just trying to get in good with me."
And it sounds like Riley won't be an easy lady to please. Kandi confesses that in the wake of the bullying epidemic happening in school across the country, it's her own daughter who she reminds to be nicer.
"I'm getting on her about not being the bully!" the 34-year-old mom says. "My daughter has a very strong personality and she's a leader. She's the one in her clique that all of the little kids are trying to follow and do what she does. I had an incident recently where she said she got in trouble because her friends were screaming at some other little girl for 'biting her style.' I said, 'You don’t have any style!'"
Good luck, fellas!
