Kandi Burruss shows off her engagement ring

Kandi Burruss Todd Tucker

Kandi Burruss and her boyfriend Todd Tucker are officially engaged, according to Alwaysalist.com.

“I’m happy and very excited about building a future with Todd,” Burruss told AlwaysAList.com exclusively. “He makes me smile from the inside out!”

Burruss, 36, an accomplished singer/songwriter, met Tucker, 39, a line producer on the RHOA set during filming of season 4 in 2012. They were formally introduced by former celebrity attorney, and RHOA co-star, Phaedra Parks while filming an episode in Africa.

Burruss flashed her diamond engagement ring in a photo shoot for US Weekly. Tucker reportedly sought the permission of Burruss’ 11-year-old daughter, Riley, before he popped the question.

Burruss dated Riley’s father, Block Spencer, before meeting her fiance, Ashley “AJ” Jewel, who died from injuries he sustained in a fist fight in 2009.

      I won’t be going in on my ring because I would assume he would ask me out of the blue with a ring in hand. We don’t talk marriage. It is going to be up to him to have the nuts to take the chance, ask me and accept the yes or no I give him. I’m not in to pre-planning my engagement… that’s his job.

      @RIF – I wasn’t there nor was my credit line when ring was purchased, but I had input. Pictures/ideas of the style I wanted had been discussed. I would have hated to be pouting, until it grew on me. I like things a certain way, I’m weird like that…..

      But 2 carats ain’t nothing to sneese at, I don’t have a loop on me, but that’s a pretty rang, looks like it has many facets (flat surfaces) Great sparkle.

      If you’re a furtue Doctor :wink: a pawn shop ring shouldn’t even be in your vocabulary for your beloved.

      No, I don’t believe in going half on a damn ring, but a Woman should not expect a six carat, interlocking glacier.

      If I love you, the love will supercede the size of the diamond, but that doesn’t mean you get the ring from a fcukin dispenser inside Golden Corral, either…

      i think the picture of her hands with the ring would have turned out better if they would have rotated the picture :think:

    • Just Looking Don’t Ask Me NOTHING

      Well assuming that the two of you will soon be husband and wife and he didn’t pay cash for rang. You gonna know how much money is going out your bottom line (couples budget), and if they ring cost/is worth anything you can’t even take it out the store withouth having insurance. So I guess it’s all relative about the cost, it’s something you both gotta be comfortable with. I say all that say, yeah she paid for it. :coffee:

      Bottomline the size of the engagement ring don’t mean shyt if he don’t or ain’t gonna respect the union. Period.

      oh, i’m not going that detailed Just Looking. We have separate accounts and it would stay that way after marriage and would be stated that way in the pre-nup. I pay half, he pays half and what we do after that with our money is individual business.

      I know this is not traditional and other people do things differently but, I’ve been married and divorced… I learned a few things that will work better for me next time financially if I go down that isle again.

    • Just Looking Don’t Ask Me NOTHING

      @Who Dat – I do agree with you on the ring, it really don’t matter. As a ring collector. #dontjudge

      It really doesn’t matter, it how that person treats and cares for you. Cause a rang ain’t gonna keep you warm at night or change your bed pan when you get 72, remind you to take your meds and sit your rambling ass down. Just saying….

      My ring ended up in the Gulf of Mexico so…. I’m not sure an appraisal would have done any good anyway.

    • FuturedocDonte

      I always figured if my aunt and uncle who have been married 46 years got married WITHOUT her having a ring…who needs one at the beginning? After 5 kids and MAJOR up’s and down’s..she has more rings than she can count these days.

      He works as a producer of sorts. SR has him as a line producer. The reality is, right now, he doesn’t have the money Kandi has. I think that’s something you just have to accept in the beginning. If you can’t move beyond it, move on. She looks happy and he looks good. And he looks happy. Congrats to them.

      He has some type career that could grow quickly into something else, so he’ll be alright. As long as he’s not some bum with dream, drive, or determination. I actually like her better with him than A.J. His story was never str8 and direct. And he wasn’t articulate at all.

      An exponentially larger number, of whom surviving records are painfully incomplete, had been forced into labor through county and local courts, backwoods justices of the peace, and outright kidnapping and trafficking. The total number of those re-enslaved in the seventy-five years between the end of the Civil War and the beginning of World War II can’t be precisely determined, but based on the records that do survive, we can safely say it happened to hundreds of thousands. How many more African Americans circumscribed their lives in dramatic ways, or abandoned all to flee the South entirely, to avoid that fate or mob violence? It is impossible to know. Millions. Generations.

      Gun Found in 7-Year-Old’s Backpack at Queens

      A handgun was found in the backpack of a 7-year-old student at a public elementary school in Queens on Thursday morning, New York City officials said, leading to a tense few hours as the school was placed on lockdown while the police made sure there was no danger.

      Good read DTTS. This stood out the most:

      First, the sweeping banishment of slavery. And then, an often overlooked but powerful prepositional phrase: “except as a punishment for crime.”

      Is that why prisons are turning into private corporations? Is this shyt still on the books (legal)? Thanks hun…I am going to research the hell outta this write up :thumbsup:
