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.

      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.

      First, I am not going to grill him on where he got it and how much it cost so, I won’t know it came from the pawn shop or the cost. Second, I would hope he would get the stone fitted properly in the setting before giving it to me.

      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…

      Just Looking Don't Ask Me NOTHING says:

      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:

      :yes: No questions or anything…

      Bottomline the size of the engagement ring don’t mean shyt if he don’t or ain’t gonna respect the union. Period. I would like something nice but shyt i’ll happily take something small and build to something greater.

      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.
