Atlanta Hawks CEO and part-owner Steve Koonin, left, presented rapper Tip “T.I.” Harris, center, with an expensive Audemars Piguet timepiece backstage before the Hawks home opener on Saturday. Koonin was very appreciative of T.I. for helping to save the Hawks after that messy racial incident involving former owner Bruce Levenson. Other celebs in the house included reality TV stars Tameka Harris, Kandi and Todd Tucker, and rapper 2 Chainz.

Bravo Network released the trailer for Real Housewives of Atlanta‘s upcoming Season 7. Apparently cast member Porsha Williams has outlived her usefulness on the scripted TV show. She will only appear in occasional scenes. That’s probably due to the fact that she’s contractually obligated to co-host Dish Nation’s syndicated TV show with radio host Rickey Smiley.
7th grader Riley Burruss covers Tiffany Evans‘ original song “I’ll Be There”. Riley is the daughter of RHOA star Kandi Burruss and industry veteran Russell “Block” Spencer of Block Entertainment. Riley has a strong voice for a kid so young. It’s hard to believe she’s only 12-years-old. She sounds a little nervous performing in front of a crowd, but her raw talent is unmistakeable.

RHOA star Kandi Burruss took to social media to explain why her musical, A Mother’s Love, was abruptly canceled. The musical starred Kandi, Shirley Murdock, Tony Terry, and Q Parker of the group 112.
Without being specific, Kandi blamed the promoter for the tour’s cancelation. Ironically, Kandi and her husband, Todd Tucker, are listed on the flyer as the tour’s promoters. Refunds are available at the point of purchase.
Local socialite and business woman Kandi Burruss has a marriage that will last the test of time. The 38-year-old Real Housewives of Atlanta star married the show’s former cameraman, Todd Tucker, in April after dating for 3 years.
This past weekend, Kandi threw her husband a sex-themed party to celebrate his 41st birthday.
Socialite siblings Kim and Khloe Kardashian were among the well-heeled reality TV personalities attending the NBC Universal Cable Entertainment Upfront in New York City on Thursday, May 15.
