Kandi Burruss

Kandi thanks family and friends for their support and prayers in the wake of AJ's tragic death.

on Oct 5, 20090

Kandi's official statement on the passing of Ashley AJ Jewell:

"I am devastated by the loss of AJ. His death comes on the heels of the passing of my beloved Uncle Ralph, and with both of them gone my heart is heavy with grief. I had spoken to AJ two hours before I got the call that he was in the hospital. Never in a thousand years did I think it was going to be the last time I heard his voice. He was taken way too soon. There are so many things that I should have said to him, wanted to say to him... But now it's too late.

I want to extend my heartfelt thanks to all of my family and friends -- and that means my twitter and facebook friends as well -- for the beautiful words of encouragement, prayers, and the sweet condolences. I make it through these difficult days because of you. I know this is cliché' but I urge everyone to treat each day as if it's your last and tell that special someone you love them today. Don't wait. It may be too late.

Please pray for his children, his family and Riley - they too are grieving the loss of an incredible man, son, brother and father. I wish you all had gotten to know the AJ we all knew and loved."

Khandi love your personality. You seem genuinely sweet BUT please STOP wasting time on KIM! The time that you spend on her is time that can be better spent assisting someone who actually has "real talent". KIM CAN'T SING! She might gave a talent BUT singing aint it! Your a real singer so you should know this already! Sorry but I have to keep it real! She's seeking instant overnight success without the talent and passion to put in the work and earn it! Tardy for the party was your brainchild &song not Kim's and she should be thanking you every day for doing her that favor! Anyone can make someone sound halfway decent by adding electronic equipment to the voice! If the person can't hold a tune without equipment and music they can't sing period!

Hello Kandi,

Obviously I love the show and all the housewives including yourself. And today I was watching a previous episode from last season and you and your mom were not on the best terms about you getting married to AJ. And I jus started to think from a religous stand point I'm not the most spirtual person in the world but I do believe in God and fate. Something in me tells me that your mother was right in the end, and he was not the man for you. Just think about it no offense becasue I have had a few people pass away close to me and I kno how it is. That's just my view on the situation and how tragic it was. But with that much love to you and i simpathize with you and his family, may he rest in piece...

Kandi, I love you girl and you stay as you are. They say NeNe is real, they don't know what real is...YOU ARE REAL and may God continue to bless you and heaven shine upon you. And keep putting that loud behind NeNe in her place if she gets in your face and continue to be close to Kim, she got a little back bone and I think you can help strengthen it when it comes to NeNe and Sheree with their immature double team ways. Glad you are back and I love you girl!!!

Kandi, I was just watching an episode from last year and I just wanted to say how much I appreciated you (style, energy, talent, maturity, spirit) and I hope all the best for you in the future. Everything definitely works well for you and I wouldn't change a thing. That's what we need more of in this world, everybody brining their own light to table. Take care, just a fan.

Kandi, you've got star power in every way and you've brought that to the show. I have only one request: STAY AWAY FROM KIM ! Nene was my favorite housewife but now you are. You have brought that balance.....I guess a little bit of all the others except Kim.

kandi- I hope that you remain with the R.HW.of ATL.; you bring some dignity to the show. It is apparent that some of those who profess being ladies don't have a hard time acting less than. Your Mom had some valid concerns regarding your choices so don't discount some of her advice. With age comes wisdom. In due respect I do submit my condolences upon you loss of AJ. Just remember that God is in Charge, He sees all and knows all. He doesn't put on us no more than we can bare. Let your faith in Him guide you through these times. Choose your friends wisely. I watch the show as much as I can and some affilations & associations need to be revisited. Young ladies look up to you; you are their role model. Take note that they don't only watch you for your entertainment career but also your personal life; you've put it out there. Your young beautiful and gifted. Much success and better choices and may God bless you and your family.

Sorry to hear what happened! I hope you wrote your feelings all down! After i lost my friend reading what i wrote always made me think of the good but also the sad times too!

It's been a year and we're all meeting to laugh and have a special hello for him. Even though he isn't here we still all think about him!

Best of luck

Hi Kandi

I just finished watching the last season and I am devasted to hear about your loss!

It really took me by suprise, it looked as though you were both headed in the right direction.

Throughout the series you have consistent in who you are as a person - It's refreshing to see someone in the show that isn't deliberately nasty and dramatic for the sake of ratings!

I wish you all the success and most importantly happiness!

Sincere condolances to you & your loved ones. May the future bring you many blessings & success.

I'm addicted to watching the show. You are one of my favorite characters who remains so grounded. I've watched all the other ladies & you are the epitome of class. Just goes to show all the money in the world can't buy you class or deceny as a human being. Great job & look forward to seeing more of you in the future.

Cheers from Down Under ;o)

Hi Kandi,

When I heard that there would be an addition to the show, I was a bit reserved. Then when I watched and continued to be glued to the screen, you were the only REAL person on the show. A breath of fresh air and one of the few that keeps it real. Keep being You Kandi, you're beautiful inside and out. I'm so so very sorry for your loss and want to extend my sympathies to his daughter and family. My heart goes out to you all. Take care and keep bringing out those beautiful songs, I'm a fan for life :)

Kandi, I have watched these shows turn classy women into trashy women. You are so strong and so in control, your mother should never worry about you and your life choices she has done a great job. I love watching you very classy. You are by far my favorite Housewife of all the Housewives shows. Stay true to your self. A fan for life.

Love Kandie but she dont fit into the mix with the other girls. I hope you guys replace her with somebody else. She is so boring to watch and she is not classy. This is suppose to be a show about classiness and thats not her. please get someone new to replace her. I skip over all of the scenes with her on them.
