There's been all kinds of fun, along with drama, as fans have watched how Kandi Burruss has handled mixing business and family on Kandi & The Gang, the series that follows Kandi and her hubby, Todd Tucker, working with their employees — some of whom happen to be Kandi's relatives — at their Atlanta hot spot, OLG.
One such relative is Kandi's cousin Patrick Dallas. Kandi previously opened up about Patrick after a fan noted, "I love the way Patrick has [Kandi and Todd's] back," to which Kandi responded on Twitter, "Yes! Patrick has our back [and] we have his!"
Well, Kandi highlighted just how much she looks out for her cousin, the grandson of OLG's Aunt Bertha Jones, in the recent April 10 episode of Kandi & The Gang. When the subject of Patrick's relationship with his girlfriend, Safari Foxe, came up, Kandi was candid about her concerns regarding their relationship, telling Patrick that Safari should "support [him]" in his desire to want a housewarming party. Kandi later noted in an interview in the episode, "I need to get to know Safari a little bit better. Period."
Recently, Kandi took to Twitter to further comment on her cousin's relationship, saying, "I like Safari but Patrick is my heart. I’m keeping my eyes open!"
Speaking of getting to know Safari, Kandi and Mama Joyce Jones also paid Patrick's girlfriend a visit at her nonsurgical body sculpting business in the April 10 episode, where Mama Joyce had a first-time experience that Safari recently posted about on Twitter.
"Mama Joyce was kinda hesitant about getting a butt lift but she loved it!" Safari wrote in her April 10 post. "I know y’all seen her check her reflection."
In addition to opening up about how close she is with her cousin in the April 10 episode, Kandi also shared even more about her bond with Patrick, who was named after Kandi's late brother, Patrick Riley. "Patrick is my [heart]! My brother Patrick [and] Patrick my cousin," she wrote on Twitter.
Patrick also took to Twitter to share his thoughts on the housewarming party, revealing that, despite Safari's initial objections to having the event, they would proceed with the gathering. "Had to put my foot down," he wrote in an April 10 Twitter post. "The Housewarming is going to happen!"
In a recent interview with The Daily Dish, Kandi shared her excitement about having her family and employees share their lives with the world. "Well, I mean, I think it's kind of cool because my family has supported me for years, just through me being on the show or whatever," Kandi shared. "And so I think, finally, it's their time to kind of shine or whatever. I like that because now, multiple things: They get to have a platform where they get to work on all their dreams and give them their purpose or whatever. And then on top of that, now they get to see what I have been dealing with [laughs]."
