Kandi Burruss and husband Todd Tucker experienced a tense moment in the December 22 episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta as he showed his wife the future location of OLé G, a new Mexican restaurant in their culinary empire. Kandi said that she was concerned that Todd was overextending himself starting multiple businesses without officially launching any of them.
"Todd has felt the pressure of him needing to make more money ever since we got together. Like, people have always questioned him being with me and whether he was with me for money and all this," Kandi said during an interview in the episode. "So he's always been in this position of him trying to prove to the world that he doesn't need my money."
But Kandi wanted to make it clear that Todd isn't investing money into these projects that he didn't earn. "We make a lot of money together through our businesses together. [And] we reinvest our profits into new businesses," Kandi tweeted to one fan on December 22. "So whatever is spent is what he helped make."
Kandi elaborated in another tweet: "FYI. Todd is not spending my personal money. That is still safe [in] my savings portfolio. He [and] I have made a lot of money together which is what we use to invest in new business ideas. He helped make it so he can help decide how it’s spent. Thanks for your concern but we’re good!"
The RHOA mogul also agreed with another fan on Twitter that "Todd will get the job done!" "I know he will," Kandi replied to the fan. "He always does."
In fact, Kandi has long been supportive of Todd's dreams. She recently opened up in a series called Black Love about how she encouraged Todd to go after new endeavors when he considered quitting his job.
"I'm a person that, if I love you and I'm with you all the way, in my mind, there's nothing that we cannot do together. So I'm always gonna figure out a plan, like, we can get that! Even though he was definitely making good money, but in my mind, I'm like, we'll figure out how to make that. You'll be fine, don't worry about it. Jump off this cliff, I'm telling you. I got you, let's do this! And we did an event the first month after he quit his job," Kandi shared. "I was just trying to show him, if we put our minds together, there's no limit to what we can do. Like, just take the risk, let's do this!"
