Peter Thomas was in Atlanta during Cynthia Bailey's star-studded wedding weekend, according to celebrity blogger ATLien.

The former Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member ran into old friend Todd Tucker, and the two men had to be separated by club security.

Kandi Burruss' husband was once a close friend of Peter's but apparently they fell out when Phaedra Parks's ex, Apollo Nida got out of jail and resumed his friendship with Peter, 60.

Peter and Apollo, 41, appeared on ATLien's show a few months back and Apollo shared how he felt betrayed by his former friend, Peter, who revealed that Apollo used Kandi and Todd's garage to store his things during his bitter divorce from Phaedra, 46 (pictured with Apollo during happier times).

Todd and Kandi fell out with Peter for gossiping.

Recently, Peter bumped into his former friend, Todd, at an Atlanta area nightclub and the two men almost came to blows! ATLien spills the tea below.

Kandi Burruss took to social media to advertise her ample ASSets on Tuesday. The 44-year-old mom of three warned her eldest daughter, Riley, not to swipe left on her photo gallery to save her child from the embarrassment.

In the photos, Kandi poses on a beach wearing a revealing bikini with Louis Vuitton logo print. In another disrespectful photo she shows off her ample butt cheeks.

"Ok rileyburruss DO NOT swipe left! I don't want you to block me. Everybody else swipe at your own risk!" she wrote.

Kandi mused about the rumors surrounding her husband, Todd Tucker, suggesting he approved her THOT photos. "...& before y'all start @todd167 said go ahead. ... I'm giving y'all a 90s #2livecrew album cover on the 2nd pic. Thank you @le__archive for the earrings!"

The "Bills, Bills, Bills" co-writer married Todd in 2014 after meeting him on the set of Real Housewives of Atlanta. They share a son, Ace, and infant daughter, Blaze.

Atlanta entrepreneurs Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker appear to have closed their new restaurant before it even opened.

A loyal reader emailed a photo that shows the RHOA cast members took down that gigantic "Blaze" sign over their shuttered steak & seafood restaurant in Southwest Atlanta.

If you recall, Kandi and Todd announced the opening of their newest establishment in the Camp Creek Marketplace last month. They also placed a "NOW HIRING" sign in the window.

But, according to my spy, the big Blaze sign came down days ago and there is no indication that the restaurant will be opening its doors anytime soon.

The new restaurant was inspired by their infant daughter, Blaze Tucker, who was delivered via surrogate on Nov. 22, 2019.

The couple already own and operate three "Old Lady Gang" soul food restaurants around the metro Atlanta area.

My spy noted that Blaze steakhouse may have been in conflict with Blaze Pizzeria restaurant chain in Atlanta.

But a quick search of Atlanta businesses turns up other "Blaze" establishments, such as Blaze strip club, the Atlanta Blaze men's lacrosse team, Blaze radio, and Blaze Sports America, among others.

Another explanation is that the funding for Kandi and Todd's new restaurant fell through. They managed to secure funding for Blaze restaurant through the government's PPP coronavirus stimulus relief package.

According to Screenrant.com, the couple received between $150,000 and $350,000 in PPP funds set aside for struggling small businesses amid the pandemic.

The loans were approved on April 29 and the funds were disbursed through TruFund Financial Services, despite the fact that Kandi allegedly has a net worth of around $30 million.

According to Screenrant.com, Kandi and Todd shouldn't have been entitled to the PPP loans in the first place since they pass themselves off as a wealthy couple.

A stressful marriage can take a toll on a woman's health. Women who suspect their husbands may be cheating on them are especially vulnerable.

Kandi Burruss took to her Instagram Stories to confess that she gained 20 pounds since May. Ironically, that's around the time when rumors swirled about her husband, Todd Tucker, and a certain voluptuous real estate agent.

The 44-year-old mom of three said she was struggling to lose 10 pounds, leaving her with 30 pounds as her weight loss goal.

"Okay so today is Wednesday, I believe it's the, is it the 16th of September? This is the first day back to working out," Burruss said.

Kandi added: "I gained 20 pounds since May. Since you know... well not at the beginning of Covid."

Marital stress can cause symptoms such as fatigue, weight gain, forgetfulness, insomnia and mood swings.

Women tend to pile on the pounds by eating greasy, fatty foods, rather than healthy foods from all 5 food groups (dairy, vegetables, fruit, grain and protein).

Kandi continued: "The beginning of Covid i was working out and i was in shape. And even then I wanted to lose 10 pounds but I ended up getting lax and comfortable and I ended up gaining 20."

"So that means I have have 30 pounds of which I would like to lose. I just want to better myself overall. I just want to get used to making working out a regular routine."

In the video titled, "I need help! Thank God for family... I hope I can stick to this 7 am workout schedule," Kandi explained that her cousin Patrick has volunteered to work out with her.

"He's a trainer. He got up and came to my house at 7 to workout and that's going to be my regular time. I hope I can stick to this."

Kandi and Todd share two children. They also have grown daughters from previous relationships.

Here are some tips to handle stress in a marriage:

1. Seek Self-Awareness

Pick the most common stress response for you and your spouse. When you notice this behavior, acknowledge the presence of difficult emotions and discuss them.

2. Listen

Listen to your spouse. Sometimes thoughts and emotions are misinterpreted because you don't listen. If you're having a hard day, ask your husband to listen to you.

3. Explore

Encourage your spouse to explore his feelings and describe what's going on inside him. Try not to be judgmental or accusatory, but have empathy for what your spouse is feeling. Name and validate painful emotions. Offering comfort for past hurts can help reduce painful emotions.

4. Seek out stressors from your spouse's childhood

Seek out your husband's feelings. Ask him about his childhood. If he feels overwhelmed, anxious and burdened, ask him if he felt overwhelmed, anxious and burdened as a child. Ask him what happens when he feels this way.

5. Resolve stress

After listening, ask, "How can I help?" Perhaps he needs some time alone after an emotionally exhausting conversation. You don't have to anticipate what he needs, you just have to ask.

Kandi Burruss often leaves her children with her husband, Todd Tucker, while she's out taking care of business. As you know, the reality TV star is the main breadwinner in the household.

Todd shared a video of their daughter Blaze Tucker on his Instagram page.

Todd takes Blaze for a ride in the stroller around the neighborhood. He mentions that it's 87 degrees outside.

Little Blaze looks absolutely miserable under a blanket in hot weather.

Wrapping a baby in a blanket in 87-degree weather is a no-no. Babies tend to overheat quickly because they have a smaller skin surface area to remove heat than adults.

The average temperature of a baby is 97.5 degrees vs. 98.6 degrees in adults. Studies have shown that thick clothing, too many layers, blankets, and high temperatures increase the risk of SIDS, or infant sleep death.

A fever in a baby is considered 100.4 degrees and higher. 100.4 is a low grade fever in an adult.

The easiest way to tell if a baby is overheating is to touch her skin. She will feel unusually hot and the back or her neck may be perspiring.

It's okay to let toddlers walk around the house in diapers during warm summer months. The room temperature should be kept between 68 degrees and 72 degrees.

It should not feel too cool or too warm to an adult. If the room feels warm or hot to you, imagine how it feels to a small baby who doesn't have as much skin surface to remove heat like you do.

Signs of Overheating in Babies

The signs of overheating in babies include:

  • Fever witout sweating
  • Skin feels warm/hot to the touch
  • Baby seems listless or lethargic (low energy)
  • Your baby is cranky and miserable
  • Baby has a rapid heartbeat
  • Baby seems dizzy or confused
  • Baby is vomiting or rejects food
  •  

    If your baby is too warm, becomes restless or throws the blanket out of the crib, she is probably overheated. Take her temperature and turn the thermostat down.

    A baby's head radiates heat. Avoid putting hats on a baby's head during warm summer months.

    How to Cool Your Baby Down

    If you suspect your baby is overheated, there are steps you can take to avoid a trip to the emergency room.

  • Offer your baby could fluids
  • Turn down the thermostat
  • Dress your baby in light clothing
  • Give your baby a lukewarm or room temperature sponge bath
  •  

    If symptoms don't improve, contact your baby's physician

    Kandi Burruss broke down in tears while trying to explain police brutality to her 4-year-old son, Ace Tucker.

    On Wednesday's episode of "Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen," the "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star got emotional while explaining an adult conversation with her toddler, who previously dressed up as a police officer for "Career Day" at his school.

    Kandi said her son asked her if cops were "the bad guys" now.

    "Now, isn't that crazy to have to explain that to a 4-year-old?" Kandi told Cohen and Tamron Hall via Skype. "For you to be black and have to worry about the police being the bad guys? I know y'all say I cry all the time, but that's an emotional thing for me," the reality star said through tears.

    Speaking to Cohen directly, Kandi said, "I know you care about us, but you don't have to think about that ... That's something that we have to think about for our sons."

    Kandi also said hr 17-year-old daughter, Riley, unfollowed her white friends who refused to discuss racial politics on their timelines.

    "She is very opinionated. She was like, 'OK. I am unfollowing every single friend or person that is not black who is not speaking up about this, who is not showing that they are an ally with our community.'"

    Andy Cohen broke his silence about Stassi Schroeder's termination from Vanderpump Rules. Cohen said he supported Bravo's decision to fire Schroeder and 3 other cast members, including Kristen Doute, for their racist actions in the past.

    Schroeder, who is white, was fired on Tuesday for a 2018 incident involving cast member Faith Stowers, who is Black.

    "There's so much happening in the Bravo universe," Cohen said on his Sirius XM podcast show. "So much talk about Vanderpump Rules and then, of course, the reunion ended up airing last night. I will say this about what happened. I absolutely support Bravo's decision, I think it was the right decision."

    Cohen spoke up about Schroeder's dismissal after fans of the Bravo show pestered him via emails and social media.

    He was quick to say he has no control over the show's programming or casting, having stepped down as executive producer in 2013.

    "I want to remind people because I've been getting so many tweets and messages and whatever about Vanderpump Rules and about Southern Charm and other shows. I'm not in charge of programming at Bravo anymore," Cohen added. "I am not an Executive Producer of Vanderpump Rules. I don't have anything to do with the show except I love it and that I host the reunions."

    But NeNe Leakes was not satisfied with his explanation. The Real Housewives of Atlanta alum hinted that Cohen should be fired because he allowed the racist atmosphere to prevail on his sets.

    She was also annoyed that Cohen chose castmate Kandi Burruss to confide in about Black Lives Matter, rather than NeNe, who everyone knows came up with the original concept for RHOA way back when.

    The show is NeNe's legal property as co-creator. That’s why NeNe can never be fired - in case you're wondering.

    Georgia's governor lifted restrictions so Georgians are free to move about the state without face masks. But residents in other states are not so lucky.

    Instagram users were outraged when they saw photos of reality TV personalities Tameka "Tiny" Harris, Antonia "Toya" Johnson and Rasheeda attending Kandi Burruss' 44th "Mask Off" birthday bash without face masks on in southwest Atlanta.

    Toya posted photos from the gathering which she captioned: "I stepped outside today for a quick second to show the birthday girl some love..... Happy Birthday @kandi..."
     

    One irate Instagram user wrote:

    "Didn't None Of Yall Have On Masks And We Wonder Why The Cases Are Rising Still Especially In Atlanta Smh,' and someone else praised Rasheeda's looks: Man I know Rasheeda was hot... especially with that hoodie on. I would have been sweating bullets."

    In fact, Georgia's coronavirus cases have gone down since Gov. Brian Kemp lifted the restrictions.

    Meanwhile, Kandi shared a photo of her family after the event. "I haven't been going out either! I was so happy to see y'all. FRFR!... Thank you."

    We love, LOVE the picture of Kandi's daughter, Riley, rocking her natural hair in an afro after wearing hair weave all her life!

    Kandi Burruss shared new Instagram photos of her infant daughter, Blaze Tucker, who was delivered by a surrogate. Twitter followers couldn't believe the baby is three months old already.

    The Real Housewives of Atlanta star and her husband Todd Tucker share 4-year-old son, Ace Tucker. And Kandi has a grown daughter, Riley, by music industry veteran Russell "Block" Spencer.

    Kandi, 43, froze her last remaining eggs after she gave birth to Ace at age 39. The busy entrepreneur hired a surrogate to carry Blaze.

    "It seems like just yesterday when @acetucker was small like @blazetucker. Time flies!," the proud mommy shared on Instagram.com. "I can't wait to see what the future holds for #blazetucker... My sunshine on a cloudy day."

    She captioned another adorable photo of Blaze: "My youngest turned 3 months old yesterday! Time is flying by. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for @blazetucker."

    R&B singer-turned-reality TV personality Kandi Burruss is "truly saddened" after a shooting wounded three people and sent diners fleeing for their lives at her Atlanta restaurant over the weekend. Kandi, 43, is best known as one of the original members of the girl group Xscape.

    A man entered the Old Lady Gang (OLG) soul food restaurant off Camp Creek Parkway in east Point on Friday and shot another man, according to East Point police. Two bystanders were wounded by gunfire. According to police, all three victims are expected to survive their injuries.

    The restaurant is managed by Kandi's mother, Joyce (pictured right), and owned by The Real Housewives of Atlanta star and her husband Todd Tucker (center).

    In an Instagram post titled "God's Got You," Kandi wrote:

    "My family and I are truly saddened by the unfortunate events that occurred at Old Lady Gang (OLG) Camp Creek, on the evening of February 14th, an evening that was meant to celebrate love, unfortunately turned into something quite different.

    "Our prayers and thoughts go out to the individuals that were harmed or in any way negatively impacted. We are aware that this matter is being actively investigated by law enforcement and we are cooperating with law enforcement to bring to justice those involved."

    Kandi explained why she opened her restaurants in high crime areas of Atlanta:

    "As African-American business owners, it has been our goal to invest in our community by bringing jobs, quality dining, and a positive experience to the greater Atlanta area; we hope that you know and understand that the acts of violence that occurred yesterday evening do not, in any way, serve as a reflection of OLG or its values.

    "We appreciate all of the love and prayers that have come our way and we encourage anyone with any information regarding any aspects of the events that occurred to please reach out to law enforcement as soon as possible."

    Kandi and husband Todd opened the original restaurant at the Castleberry Hill location in 2016, and the chain now has three locations around Georgia.
