Kandi Burruss and her family are showing fans another side of themselves on Kandi's Ski Trip, which premiered on Bravo on Sunday. The three-part special chronicles Kandi, husband Todd Tucker and their family heading to Colorado for some quality time.
And Kandi said watching the series reminded of her something. "I am born and raised in Atlanta and I am very country and I have a definite accent, but when I get around my family, it gets worse!" she tells Us Weekly. "So I laughed so hard at points watching because it reminds me of the black Beverly Hillbillies."
The series also focuses a bit on Kandi's mom, Mama Joyce's, relationship with Todd, which hasn't always been warm and fuzzy. "My mom was pretty good because before the trip we had just lost Todd's mom, so she was being very nice to Todd," Kandi says. "She was there for him and was better to him, so their relationship was pretty cool."
She further notes that filming with family, in general, can be an emotional experience.
"Dealing with your family, it makes it much more emotional for me because you take everything to heart," she reveals. "When I have a thing with the ladies, it's like whatever, but when I go through these things with my family, I really, really care about how they feel and making up with them. It's more of a serious issue with me. My family, they're very open and they say anything in front of the camera—they don't hold back—so you never know what they're going to say. It's very different from the ladies on Housewives!"
Despite the show's title Kandi admitted it's not really about actually what went down when everyone hit the slopes. "The funny thing is, the show is called the Ski Trip, but it's not really about the skiing! You don't even really see that much skiing going on," she says. "It's about the dynamics of these families."
