Another one of Kandi Burruss' restaurants has failed a health inspection. Luckily for Kandi, fans still dine at her establishments after her poor history of failed health inspections.

Last month The Real Housewives of Atlanta star and her husband Todd Tucker's Blaze Steak House on Cascade Road received a second failing score and was forced to shut down.

RhymeswithSnitch reports that Kandi and Todd's Old Lady Gang soul food restaurant has received a second failing score.

The Old Lady Gang Southern Cuisine restaurant, located at 177 Peters Street in Alanta's warehouse district, received a 78 (Grade C) score from the Fulton County Health Inspector on August 24, 2017. The restaurant scored a subsequent 100 on reinspection in 2017.

According to the Georgia Dept. of Health website, Old Lady Gang Southern Eatery scored a dismal 75 after a third inspection on July 14 found several violations at the establishment.

The health official noted that the manager was not taking steps to "prevent foodborne illness by having repeated risk factors and good retail practice violations."

Atlanta restaurants that fail health inspections are given one chance to clean up their act before they are forced to close down permanently.

If you are a home buyer who prefers homes with gas stoves and gas water heaters, you may be out of luck.

Cities are pushing builders to exclude gas hookups in new homes and developments to protect the environment.

But chefs say gas stoves heat up quicker than electric stoves and they have greater control over the temperatures with gas flame. Additionally, gas heaters heat homes more efficiently and evenly than electric heat.

Gas stoves are typically cheaper than electric stoves, and electric stoves and water heaters are useless when the power goes out.

Several cities, including Berkeley, Calif., Denver and New York City are banning natural-gas connections to new homes and businesses.

When Berkeley, Calif., became the first U.S. city to ban natural-gas two years ago, the California Restaurant Association sued.

A federal judge dismissed the challenge earlier this month; the restaurant group said it plans to appeal the decision.

Question: Do you prefer gas stoves or electric stoves?

Kraft premiered a new ice cream flavor just in time for National Macaroni & Cheese Day (July 14). The brand teamed up with Brooklyn-based Van Leeuwen Ice Cream to develop the new creamy macaroni & cheese ice cream flavor.

"We know that there is nothing more refreshing on a hot summer day than ice cream," said Kraft in a press release.

"That is why we wanted to combine two of the most iconic comfort foods to create an ice cream with the unforgettable flavor of Kraft Macaroni & Cheese we all grew up with."

The limited-edition ice cream is available online on Van Leeuwen's website and in the brand's stores across the country while supplies last starting July 14 at 11 a.m.

The new sweet confection isn't cheap. A pint costs $12, but New Yorkers can taste the new flavor for free between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. at an ice cream truck in Union Square.

By 12 noon Twitter users complained that the website kept crashing.

It sounds like the new macaroni & cheese flavor is a success.

Social media expressed disappointment with a New Hampshire restaurant owner after a customer left a $16,000 tip for a bartender and told him not to "spend it all in one place."

The customer who dined at the the Stumble Inn Bar and Grill a few weekends ago, left a $16,000 tip on a $37 bar tab.

But the bartender was forced to share the generous tip with his co-workers.

Owner Michael Zarella said the tip was split between eight bartenders who worked all shifts on June 12.

Social media users say the owner didn't have the right to split the tip among the other bartenders.

By law, a restaurant owner can't take or misappropriate an employee's tip and split it among other employees.

Zarella said he has spoken with the customer, and he confirmed "it was his intention" to leave the money for his employees.

The customer reportedly confirmed the large tip was not a mistake or typo.

"He wanted them to have it," Zarella said.

Kandi Burruss' restaurant, Blaze -- named after her firstborn son -- was forced to shut down after failing a second health inspection.

Blaze closed its doors for good on May 20 after failing a second health inspection on May 19, according to Radar Online. The restaurant, which opened to the public in November, received a failing score of 55.

The issues cited in the May 19 report included a cook handling raw seafood without first washing hands, a Chick-fil-A cup in the food supplies area, and pink mold in both ice makers.

The restaurant was also forced to shut down in 2020 after it was cited for health and food safety violations.

Kandi, 45, is no stranger to the health inspector's office. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star's Old Lady Gang eatery just barely passed a second surprise health inspection in 2017 after failing in 2015.

The Old Lady Gang Southern Cuisine restaurant, located at 177 Peters Street in Alanta's warehouse district, received a 78 (Grade C) score from the Fulton County Health Inspector on August 24, 2017.

The restaurant's menu is based on soul food recipes from Kandi's mom, Mama Joyce (pictured right), and her two aunts, Nora and Bertha Jones.

The inspector found a laundry list of violations including inadequate hand washing facilities, unsanitary food contact surfaces and improper cooking time and temperatures.

Happy Thanksgiving! I am humble and thankful for all of your support over the years. I am grateful that Sandrarose.com is your first stop for celebrity news, gossip, photos and medical minutes.

As you gather around the dinner table with your family and friends, you can be sure the food on your plate is healthy and nutritious if you follow this guide:

Top 5 healthiest foods on your Thanksgiving plate:
 

Roast Turkey

The healthiest turkey is organic and pasture raised. Lean roast turkey is high in protein and rich in B vitamins including B3 (niacin), folate (necessary for formation of red and white blood cells), biotin (for healthy hair and nails), and choline. Turkey is also rich in selenium (for normal thyroid function) and omega-3 fats (lowers risk of heart attack and strokes). A 4 ounce serving of white lean turkey meat contains 152 calories. Studies show turkey doesn't increase the risk of cancer like red meat does.
 

Green beans

Green beans are a healthy addition to salads and an excellent source of vitamin K, vitamin C, manganese, fiber, folate and vitamin B2 (riboflavin for energy metabolism). Green beans are low-calorie and high in fiber and antioxidants. One-cup of cooked green beans contains about 45 calories and about 7mg of silicon (for support of connective tissue and bones).
 

Sweet potatoes

Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of beta-carotene and vitamin A (anti-inflammatory nutrients and support normal eye health). They are also good sources of vitamin C (antioxidant protects cells from damage and fights the common cold). Sweet potatoes also contains fiber that's necessary for good bowel health.
 

Cranberries

20% of all cranberries are consumed on Thanksgiving day. Cranberries are high in antioxidants that helps protect cells from inflammation damage and oxidative stress (risk factors for heart disease). One cup of cranberries contains 18% of vitamin C, 16% of manganese and 16% of fiber. Cranberry juice improves urinary tract infections (URI) caused by E. coli.
 

Carrots

Carrots are considered the ultimate health food. They are excellent sources of vitamins, minerals and fiber. Carrots also contain antioxidants, carotenoids and vitamin A, which may prevent age-related macular degeneration (age-related vision loss). A 2015 study found a link between carotenoids and lower risk of prostate cancer.

Thanksgiving dinner in Black households usually means gravy poured over everything. Gravy may be savory, but it is not doctor-approved. Gravy is loaded with carbohydrates, saturated fats and who knows what else is thrown in there. Say no thanks to gravy.
 

Anything fried

Fried food is unhealthy because it increases the risk of heart attacks and cancer. Fried food is also associated with obesity. Studies show people who only eat fried food are more likely to die early than those who avoid fried food.
 

Candied yams

Your guests might as well eat a big bowl of sugar if you're serving candied yams for dessert this Thanksgiving. Candied yams with marshmallows is pure sugar. The yams themselves are sweet without all the extra added sugar.
 

Stuffing or dressing with sausage

Stuffing is a side dish that most Americans only consume on Thanksgiving day. Some people say stuffing and dressing are the same dish. Whether you call it "stuffing" or "dressing" - it is not doctor approved. Stuffing is a mystery side dish that contains a variety of unhealthy ingredients including sausage, bacon, eggs, white bread crumbs, custard, sugar, and white flour. Stuffing is loaded with calories, carbs and saturated fats that may raise your blood pressure and increase risk of a heart attack.
 

Mashed potatoes with bacon and cheese

Mashed potatoes with bacon and cheese are an unhealthy combination. The dish is high in starchy carbs and saturated fats. Mashed potatoes enters your bloodstream faster than sugar and will make you sleepy and more hungry. If you must serve mashed potatoes this Thanksgiving, leave off the bacon and cheese.

When Mars, Inc. announced Uncle Ben's rice will no longer bear the likeness of a Black man on the packaging, Master P came up with a new product replace it in Black households.

The music mogul said he is launching Master P's white rice to give back to the Black community.

While many in the Black community applauded Quaker and Mars, Inc. for putting an end to racial bias and racist stereotypes, others are disappointed that Black people are being erased from retail products.

Mars, Inc. said the change was long overdue, and the company said it will look at "all possibilities" to replace the familiar logo on it's rice products.

But Master P isn't waiting for corporations to make Black people shareholders.

Master P wrote on Instagram:

"I want to ask y'all one question... Who is Uncle Ben & Aunt Jemima? Our grandparents and minorities 'til this day have been buying these brands for years, thinking it's owned by our people. We have to change that narrative! Uncle P rice and PJ food changing the game. Economic empowerment. The more we make, the more we give. Uncle Ben is a model from the 1940s, just to educate the ones that are curious. #ownership It's time to buy our blocks back, groceries stores, and supply them."

My mom and I don't eat white rice because it's unhealthy. But if Master P sells brown rice, we will definitely try it if he is giving back to the Black community.
