Bravotv.com: What have you been up to since last season and the wedding?
Kandi Burruss: Just getting used to being a wife and learning how to live life as a blended family. On the business side, I've been writing new music, revamping my Kandi Koated Nights show (as well as developing some other online shows), expanding my Bedroom Kandi Brand, and also maintaining my Tags Boutiques.
Bravotv.com: Were you nervous at all about having Kaela come live with you and Todd?
KB: Yes, I was a little, because Kaela is 18 and I want to build a good relationship with her. I never want her to feel like I'm the wicked step mom. I'm scared to put too many rules on her in fear of her feeling like I'm being too harsh, but there still have to be rules.
Bravotv.com: Was it difficult meshing you parenting style with Todd’s?
KB: Yes. Todd is a lot sterner than I am, and he feels like I'm not stern enough. We are still trying to find our happy medium.
Bravotv.com: How tough was it dealing with Apollo’s legal situation while being a friend to both Apollo and Phaedra?
KB: It's very hard. Phaedra is always assuming I'm siding with Apollo, which isn't true. Todd and Apollo became pretty good friends, so I would say he takes Apollo's side a lot. Todd and I have serious debates over their issues. Sometimes I get to the point where I'm like, "Listen Todd, we shouldn't be arguing about their problems." It's crazy really... At the end of the day Phaedra is my girl. I'm always going to be honest with her about what I think. Sometimes we have a difference of opinion, but it's not because I'm taking anyone's side against her. Never that! It always sucks when two people that you really like are going through something as crazy as this. I've always heard that when a married couple goes through a divorce the people close to them end up going through the divorce with them. I never understood what that meant before, but I do now.
Anyway I'm sure you all are going to go crazy on me for saying all that, but hey, "I said what I said." LOL!
