Kandi Burruss Dishes on the Things She’d Never Leave Home Without

We all know that Kandi Burruss is a knockout. And now The Real Housewives of Atlanta mom is looking like a certain famed boxing champ, too. 

How to Watch

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

Kandi is currently in Philadelphia, and no trip to the City of Brotherly Love would be complete without a visit to the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the same ones that Sylvester Stallone's character triumphantly ran up during the iconic training montage in Rocky. Kandi reenacted the famous moment, looking the part in a gray sweatshirt and everything, and she captured it all on Instagram for our enjoyment. She even sang some of the theme from Rocky, "Gonna Fly Now," to really set the mood.

I had to do the #RockyBalboa in #Philly.

As you can see, Kandi eventually made her way to the top where she and her husband Todd Tucker lifted their arms just like the boxer. Relive the original moment, below.

Kandi has already run into a famous sports figure during her Philadelphia vacay: 76ers star Allen Iverson.


We may not hear Kandi shout the name "Adrian" ever on RHOA, but funnily enough, just like in the movie Rocky, there is an Apollo that's well-known to this group of Georgia Peaches. And Phaedra Parks' ex-husband is going to cause a stir on Sunday night's new episode when his girlfriend unexpectedly strolls into town. Sneak a peek at the surprising moment, below.
