Todd Tucker Recalls the First Time He Met Kandi

The newlywed says he was attracted to "her great butt."

Kandi's Wedding is upon us in all its glittery, Coming To America-inspired glory, but the road to the altar wasn't exactly littered with roses and good tidings for Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker. The happy couple have dealt with quite a bit of adversity from Mama Joyce, but in spite of it all, they're fondly recalling some of their most romantic moments as we ready for the big event.

Todd recently opened up about planning the wedding, the drama with Carmon, facing Mama Joyce and more—and he also dished about meeting Kandi for the first time.

How did they link up? Kandi caught Todd's eye while they were both in South Africa on a Real Housewives of Atlanta trip. He was working in production at the time, and their romance sparked despite the fact that Housewives/crew romances are generally taboo.

"I was trying to play it cool in Africa as it's against the rules to cross the line with the talent," Todd remembers. "In Production that's a big NO NO! … I loved her smile, she had a great butt! LOL! She seemed very humble and genuine."

We're sure it must've been a shock to not only fall for Kandi while taping RHOA, but to walk down the aisle with the cameras rolling only a couple of years later! The wedding turned out to be a gorgeous affair, but Todd wasn't too keen on getting DIY with the planning at first.

"I wanted no part of planning the wedding," he says. "I just wanted to enjoy our wedding day! It was a big production, and I didn't want to have to deal with vendors being on time as I walked down the aisle."
