Since I didn’t blog last week, I’ll just give my thoughts on both last week and this week’s episodes.
The trip to Anguilla was gorgeous! I loved it and I am sooo glad Todd surprised me and came along. I really didn’t think he was going to make it. It would have sucked to have to go to a beautiful island like Anguilla and be alone while everyone else had their significant other.
Well, I didn’t know Kenya very well prior to the trip, but I think I learned a few things along the way. She has a flirtatious personality. Some of the things that she was saying and doing to other men I thought crossed the line for someone who supposedly wanted to be proposed to on that trip. The whole time I kept thinking, “Wow, Walter isn’t bothered by some of this?” Like her flirting with the two men at the party or her bending over in front of Peter, etc. Well, I just came to the assumption that maybe it’s just harmless flirting and Walter already knows and understands that’s just her personality. But even though Walter may understand, Phaedra definitely didn’t. Phaedra does not play about her husband, and she let it be known. LOL!
Kandi, I liked what you said in your interview referencing Kenya that if she will "bootlegg an idea from Phaedra, that she will do it to you as well." That was a very common sense approach that you brought to the table. However, on the 2nd season when Kim betrayed NeNe by no longer wanting to do the song "Don't be Tardy For the Party" with her after you made it into a hit, why did you not re-evaluate Kim's shady character at that time? Instead you allowed her to toss you to the side by disregarding your efforts once the royalties started to kick in. To add insult to injury, you did another song for her and she gave you the shaft AGAIN!!! You kept that user, of a woman, in your life way too long and you kept making excuses for her. Can you explain that please.....

Just love watching you on the show. You come across as very down to earth and seem grounded. It was good to hear you back Phaedra up when Kenya started talking about her and the video. That showed character....sticking up for what you believe in. Clap clap clap!
Kandi, I do not understand how bi-coastal Nene with her two primetime TV shows has time to blog, but not you.
I don't understand why are you and Todd moving so fast. Your daughter even thinks so. Now you constantly make remarks about nobody better mess with MY MAN etc.. I wonder if the remark a few seasons ago and on the reunion show may have some merit about you being a "sugar mama"
Your pup needs water! :) Every shot of him shows him panting, and the latest video clip shows him licking the toxic soap from the car wash.... Keep a big ol' bowl of cold water out for him all of the time, right? :)
I love your practicality and heart in the show- hope to see more!
Hey Kandi< you are so fun and cool, what a breath of fresh air you are to the show. I also think what a wonderful woman you are, doing your own thing, making your own way in life and keeping it real Congrats on your engagement, I think you deserve a happy life and I hope you get it! Best wishes to you. PS Loved you on WWHL, you looked awesome!
remember when kandi was having lunch with cynthia and right away started talking about nene. nene and cynthia are FRIENDS. who does that. STOP IT KANDI THIS TALKING ABOUT PPL BEHIND THEIR BACKS AINT CUTE
For someone that insists she doesn't want to be in the middle of anything you sure do continue to find yourself there. I actually really liked you but now I am disappointed by the lack of objectivity and basic business sense you displayed by backing Phaedra and her ridiculous point of view.
NOW THAT YOU'RE ENGAGED, KENYA REALLY HAVE TO GET OUT OF THE SHOW, ITS NOT RIGHT THAT EVERYONE HAS A MAN AND MISS AMERICA..OPS!!! I MEANT MISS USA.... IS STILL FISHING AT 40+...
did anyone else see the episode of WWHL when andy cohen presented joyce with a dildo and president barak obama image was on the head and kandi and her mama fell out laughing instead of getting up and walking out.
yvonnegraham Really? I missed that episode and I'm glad I did!!! That was in extremely poor taste, and was a blatant and outright insult!!! They probably didn't get it, but Riley would have. She is the smartest one in that family
you seem to have a need to always be involved in everyone else's business. at the hair salon, you couldn't wait to spill the beans to phaedra about kenya's stallion video. how fast did you pull that phone out of your purse? you couldn't even wait to get back to your car to make the call! it's plain embarrassing and makes you look foolish. mind you own business.
k217 If that situation would have happen with one of my friends, damn right I'm calling. Why would you keep something like from your "friend"? Kandi and Phaedra have been friends longer than Kenya been in Atlanta. I'm glad that some people are still loyal to their friends. Remember these women are friends on and off the show.
k217 have you been watching the show? the whole cast does that with their friends. Especially nene and cynthia.
kandi you are still messy. is it your business with phaedra and kenya video and derek j at the hair show u was down with kenya now u talking about her with kandi. yall both messy and need to have several seats
Kandi you are one of my favorite housewife, but the thing with Phaedra and Kenya I didn't like how you treated Kenya, just because of the fact when Kim did the same thing to you on her record deal you felt like you were in title to something for you time and effort, because you don't work for free, and I think that's double standards, because that girl did and do deserve something for her time and effort too. Just saying.
No blog for over one month. You have been my fav RHOA but since you I don't get to enjoy reading your blog and getting your feedback on the show.... I am done. It is a respect thing.
Kandi i am a huge fan of both your music and toy line especially happiness and joy, you are one of my fav housewives keep standing your ground and congrats on your engagement love it
kani's engagment ring costs almost 11,000 bucks, not alot of money for someone who CAN BUY EACH AND EVERYONE OF YOU M.F. IF I WAN TO. todd america's got its eyes on you
That's a good sign that Todd actually bought the ring himself instead using her money. If that's so, it's a very good sign.
Thank you Purple86. I agree. Also Kandi is a big believer in living within your means.
Ooh, Kandi, you don't deserve all the negative feedback, including Wendy Williams saying Todd is an opportunist. I have not gotten that feeling at all, just the opposite.
You and Todd (and Riley) are adorable together and look just right for one another. I send lots of white loving light to you all. Congratulations!
I understand not wanting drama at your man's party, but to say that, THEN walk away and start gossiping to Phaedra about it, HARDLY constitutes walking away! And by the way, we know you're excited about finally having a man, but there's no reason to want to hurt anyone as you stated.... RELAX!
@loving_my_life I enjoyed your comment to Kandi, what she is forgetting is that she purchased that home not him and she is looking like a BIG Mama to me,
marlo called her out for being a sugar mama at the last reunion show
You have to remember that most males in America do not earn as much as Khandi does...so instead of her looking for someone who earns more then her she is looking for someone who loves her.
Kandi, I am really happy for you. After everything with AJ you seemed to really pull thru. You and Todd look amazing together and I wish you a lifetime of happiness.
Congrats Kandi!!! Todd and yourself are perfect for each other. He seems like a great life partner, friend, father figure to Riley, and etc. Lots of love. You deserve it more than anyone!!
Kandi i really like you but you REALLY need to find a man with some real money,so your not always flipping the bill, you are an African Princess and you need to be treated like one,
@lala1966 I enjoyed your comment to Kandi, what she is forgetting is that she purchased that home not HIM, and she is looking like a BIG Mama to me,
Kandi, youve turned into a person I'm not too sure I like. You ised to stay neutral and above all the drama. Now it seems your falling in line with some of the other women. To your point about Kenya flirting with Phaedra's husband, it takes two. he seemed to "play" along as well. So Phaedra needs to "check" her man. Women not just "Kenya" will approach her husband all the time. HE is responsible for his space. Stop jumping on the " I don't like Kenya" band wagon. It's not a good look!
Did you buy your engagement ring for Todd too? You definitely over reacted with Kenya Kandi.
Kandi didn't you learn your lesson from A.J. Todd is just using you!! The helicopter ride, paying airfare for his friends & family (SMH). He said to you,"I ADORE YOU". All of the money you spent he could have at least said, "I LOVE YOU". I can't wait to see what he does for your birthday! Even your daughter, Riley has more sense than you! When Phaedra & the minister was at your house talking about marring you, you saw how fast Todd changed that subject. Learn how to let the man be a man in the relationship. Learn how to let the men spoil you!!!!!
I agree 100%. Also, why is it that Khandi seems to have a problem with women marrying rich men, but has no problem with men going after or marrying rich women? I believe Khandi also made a comment about her daughter not thinking everything should be given to her, but she seems to "give" everything to her men.
yesssssss pinktiger....riley why u date him for one month and hes in my house. kandi wake up
pinktiger I disagree with the words I adore you..adore is an elevation of love so if a person says they adore you that really is a loving gesture...in my opinion LOVE is LOVE and the bank account does not determine that....I truly love my husband and If I were to make it rich I would share everything I have with him...maybe Todd cant afford to give her an over the top birthday but it truly is the small things that count and perhaps that is what Kandi appreciates the most....anyway she looks happy and that is all that matters....I love to see people who are in love so I support their relationship ...I hope they make it
pinktiger Love is not achieved by someone spending lots of money on you. I'm assuming they have said they love each other as this point, but saying he adores her quickly in front of cameras and family does not make him less of a good boyfriend. By the way, Todd also is rich, he just may not be AS rich. It's okay for a woman to make more than a man and pay for a great birthday party. Who's to say he doesn't do things like that right back to her? How come men paying for a great birthday party is seen as chivalrous, but a woman doing the same thing is her being taken advantage of? What happened to feminism?
pinktiger Congrats to Kandi! I'm happy that she is happy. Hey, Phradra bought and paid and continues to pay for her hubby and she is happy and it WORKS so if Kandi wants to do the same with Todd so be it...at least she's happy. Btw, not to type ill of the deceased, but A.J. and Todd, totally different personalities and respect for Kandi. I'm wishing the COUPLE much PEACE, HAPPINESS, & ADORING LOVE!
@Aswillia1 @pinktiger Same thing this is supposed to be a house wife show, not House Husbands of Atlanta. As a Therapist I am building self esteem with my clients from SOME OF these dummies on this show it’s called what to do, and not to do, for a man.
@Aswillia1 @pinktiger Kandi said she &Todd purchased the home...even if she lied it, its her business and what she wants to do. Todd is not a bum and 10x better than that blatantly disrespectful AJ. Glad Kandi is happy.
KANDI i really like u.we have the same birthdays and yr lol...but girlfriend please clear something up for me.Please tell me u didnt right that song Kanya going around singing? Tell me u didnt.everybody cant sing KANDI.I know u work miracles but i wish she stop playing.i couldnt stand to listen....Oh and God sent u who he picked out for..good luck
Kandi, please don't take this the wrong way, your bf seems like a genuinely nice person....but looks so much younger than you...and the scene of the two of you getting in a helicopter, you going all out for his birthday, just looks like the way a rich guy who is older than his gf would do .... it is never attractive to see the roles reversed because people immediately realize that you have way more than this guy...so much more,,a pre nup is introduced...which is something you are forced to do i am sure...your mother will not let you have your fun without one....even she knows, a younger man, or even a man that has not earned a like income to yours just cannot always be trusted with your best interest....again, don't take offense to my comments....i am only writing what everybody else is thinking....its almst a no win situation because of the way our society thinks....shame on us
