Deadbeat dads everywhere can relate to Kandi Burruss' ex-boyfriend Russell "Block" Spencer.

When September rolls around this year, the music manager and father of three will have two less mouths to feed.

Block took to social media over the weekend to celebrate the expiration dates of two of his child support obligations.

He shared a video clip of a man dancing, and captioned the video: "... me after september – officially getting rid of both dem baby mama's!!! 18 ya biiiiish!! – – strap up young homies! Get married !!"

His celebration was not appreciated by Kandi and her eldest daughter, Riley Burruss, who referred to her father as a "bum."

Riley, 18, and her dad have not spoken in years. "I feel like my father never really did anything. It's time for him to at least provide something when I'm going away to college," she said.

“Wasn't I like 15 when he came around and tried to start talking again? When you are only the bum father to me, it just kind of rubs me the wrong way because you had the capability to be there because I can see it with all your other children. I have the people around me who I'm already comfortable with, so I feel like I just kind of moved past the point where he’s necessary."

Kandi discussed Block's child support obligations during the recent episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta, saying he still owes Riley $100,000 in default payments.

Block and his handsome wife are parents to a 3-year-old boy named King Cairo.

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.'"

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 a photo of her sleeping daughter, Blaze Tucker, with her followers on Instagram. The one-month-old baby was delivered by a surrogate using Kandi's previously frozen egg, fertilized by her husband Todd Tucker's sperm.

In the photo taken by baby photographer @weelovephotography, little Blaze sleeps peacefully while swaddled in a blanket. A headband ringed with intricate flowers and pearls adorns her head.

In another post on Thursday, Kandi shared her IVF journey with her followers. She explained her reasons for using a surrogate (pictured) to carry her and Todd's second child after suffering complications during her pregnancy with her son, Ace Tucker.

"My pregnancy with Ace came with many complications, which is why our family decided to use a surrogate," she wrote.

"My first daughter, Riley, was conceived and birthed into the world as easily as could be. Little did I know that 13 years later when I wanted to continue this story, that I would be faced with the struggle of infertility due to non-cancerous fibroids."

The 43-year-old mother-of-three said she overcame her fears that the surrogate would keep her baby or that she wouldn't bond with the child.

In vitro fertilization (IVF) is an expensive procedure for women who can't conceive on their own. Each "cycle" can cost as much as $15,000 and is not guaranteed to produce results.

Below are excerpts from Kandi's post:

First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes the baby in the baby carriage. At least that is what most of us are taught, but no one ever shares that the journey to the baby carriage can come with sadness, doubts, and fertility obstacles. My first daughter, Riley, was conceived and birthed into the world as easily as could be. Little did I know that 13 years later when I wanted to continue this story, that I would be faced with the struggle of infertility due to non-cancerous fibroids.

My pregnancy with Ace came with many complications, which is why our family decided to use a surrogate (pictured here!). When we looked into this I went through a series of emotions and questions like: how is this going to affect my bond with my child? what if the surrogate tries to keep my baby? what are others going to think? Will the baby share DNA with the surrogate from the pregnancy even though it is my eggs?

She continued:

"I've had an amazing husband to lean on, and my surrogate has been so encouraging, but it's been great to talk to other women who really understand my fears and pain firsthand. All in all I have to say to each of you: your journey to the baby carriage may not be the same as someone else’s, but you are not alone in this journey to motherhood."

Todd Tucker and Riley Burruss

Over the weekend, singer Kandi Burruss Instagram'd this holiday image of her fiancé Todd Tucker and her daughter, Riley Burruss, on a Jet Ski. Almost immediately, Twitter erupted with criticism about the close proximity of Todd to Kandi's daughter on the Jet Ski. Normally I ignore black Twitter's juvenile attacks on celebrities. But in this case -- judging by Riley's guarded body language -- they might be right. Read on.
