Kandi and Friends Turned Up for Her Birthday — and Yes, There Was Twerking Involved

The #RHOA mom let loose for her 40th birthday celebration in the Bahamas. 

By Laura Rosenfeld

When Kandi Burruss posted a photo of herself in a vibrant magenta swimsuit surrounded by many of her famous friends on Friday, we knew it was going to be a weekend to remember. And indeed it was, as evidenced by Kandi and her clique's epic account of their Bahamas vacay this weekend. 

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta on Peacock and the Bravo App.

Kandi, her husband Todd Tucker, and many of her well-known gal pals, including Rasheeda Frost, Lil Wayne's ex Toya Wright, who also appeared on last season of Untying the Knot, and The Real Housewives of Atlanta's Shamea Morton, jetted off to the Bahamas in celebration of the hitmaker's 40th birthday on May 17.

One highlight of the trip was an impromptu dance party in which twerking was not an option.


Kandi also busted a move in an LBOP (little black one-piece). We still can't believe she gave birth to son Ace Wells Tucker just a little more than four months ago.

Speaking of little Ace, he got to enjoy some fun in the sun, too with his dad, Love & Hip Hop Atlanta's Kirk Frost, and his son Karter Frost.

A vacay is the perfect time to get your Snapchat on, as Baby Tucker demonstrated with Toya.

No VIP vacation like this would be complete without an afternoon out cruising around the Bahamas.

Kandi, Todd, Kirk, and his wife Rasheeda Frost reigned supreme as two undeniably cool couples on this trip.

But Kandi also spent a lot of time with just her girls, like when the stylish squad hit up the club.

The ladies looked fierce as they said farewell to their island getaway.

There was just as much skin shown and good vibes in the air during the RHOA cast's trip to Jamaica last season. Get a behind-the-scenes look, below.
