It looks like Kandi Burruss got Married this Week by NMD
Congratulations Kandi and Todd!
Rumors are abound that Kandi Burruss got married this week to fiancee Todd Tucker. Todd tweeted a photo of a beach wedding, with the tagline: “Here’s to new beginnings!!! Life is good!!!”
Kandi is looking relaxed and happy.
But don’t think this was a private affair without Bravo in tow. Kandi’s castmates were all there:
But then it was back to business – with Kandi flying to Shreveport a few days later, and then presumably back in Atlanta to celebrate birthdays with friends last night. Phaedra tweeting this photo:
I DON’T Dream of NeNe but I wish her the Best by NMD
It looks like even NeNe wants to get this wedding over with – last week she tweeted:
My Wedding is next Tuesday n a 2 hour special! I’am so excited all of u will get 2 see me & @greggleakes become Mr & Mrs again💍💋👍
She didn’t even bother to correct herself, but after Tuesday’s episode aired and it STILL wasn’t over – she began tweeting that the finale was on Sunday. That’s today folks if you’re interested, 8 pm Bravo time.
I lost interest a few weeks ago, and was disappointed to see that I’ll either have to blog her wedding tonight or come up with some sort of excuse. Don’t get me wrong. I like NeNe. A LOT. I just haven’t like her show after the first week or so.
NeNe doesn’t seem like she’s having any fun planning her wedding. She’s spending between a half million and a million dollars on this thing, and stressed out. She didn’t get along with her first wedding planner, and her second one doesn’t have the time to do things the way she wants them. (Plus I don’t know about you, but I’m worried about all those people going to the wrong venue – because they had to have changed venues after they sent out the invitations, unless Bravo is messing with the timeline. And they wouldn’t do that? Would they?)
NeNe is also determined to make Gregg grovel and take all the blame for their failed first marriage. Of course most of us know that the divorce was both a storyline and a way for Gregg to clear his financial mess while NeNe could hold on to her Bravo paycheck. But they can’t say that. We’re supposed to forget that Gregg spoke to a radio show explaining that NeNe’s need for lavish things had driven him to financial ruin. We’re also supposed to forget that it was rumored that NeNe was stepping out on Gregg, and was shown on the show accepting shoes with red bottoms from an admirer.
Gregg’s financial mess has led to the prenup discussion. I honestly don’t care one way or another if this couple has a prenup – so that part of the series both saddened and bored me. Gregg’s family was another theme – but they seem to have wised up early on and stopped filming. Good for them.
NeNe was in a battle with her own sisters during filming – no sign of them. Now that would have been interesting.
The bridesmaids. It’s like NeNe was scared she couldn’t carry the show on her own, so she enlisted the help of the terrible bridesmaids. All their bickering gave me a headache, and was the main reason I stopped watching the show. They made her miserable, and they made me miserable. It was a huge mistake to make them such a central part of the show – or to make them bridesmaids in the first place.
NeNe’s ratings have been good – especially considering she has no lead in. They’re about the same as Kim’s spinoff – 1.2 to 1.5 million viewers. Far better than Real Housewives of Miami where they’ve been under 900,000 or weeks now. Perhaps I’m alone in not enjoying this show.
NeNe is fun to watch when she’s happy, but her wedding seems to be making her miserable. It’s too bad. Hopefully she’ll come up with a better storyline if her spin off gets renewed for a second season.
Joe Giudice Trial Date will be Set Soon by NMD
Joe Giudice will be back in court this week unless he takes a plea bargain on his driver’s license forgery charge. Rather than the trial actually starting, it appears as though the court date is to set the date for the trial to start. Wowza – it sure is a slow process. I believe the hope is that he’ll get this one done before the federal trial addressing the 39 count federal indictment begins early next year. It’s hard to keep up with his legal woes. Here’s the story from the Montville Patch.
AZ Girls has some photos of her hike in Sedona to share:
