Kandi Burruss is revealing a great deal of her familial struggles on her reality television series "The Real Housewives of Atlanta," and insists that none of it is fabricated.
Fans will witness the singer-songwriter's mother speak out against her union with television producer Todd Tucker during the throughout the course of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" season six. After Burruss' mother questioned her fiance and wedding ring on her show, the 37-year-old mother and music mogul was left in tears.
After an emotional exchange with her mother, Burruss took to Twitter to let fans know that she was showcasing her actual reality on the series.
"I kno people think reality tv is fake but I promise u everything u see me go thru is real (SIC)," she tweeted.
Burruss believes that her mother began disliking her fiance after watching The Wendy Williams talk show.
"I can tell you when it started. Last year when Wendy Williams was commenting on our show every week and she was like, '[Todd's] an opportunist," Burruss told ABC News radio recently. "I think he's an opportunist.' Next thing I know, my momma comes back and is like, 'Wendy said that he was an opportunist.'"
The fact that her mother does not approve of the nuptials has hindered the wedding planning process for Burruss.
"I haven't decided yet if I want something that's small and just us or if we wanted to do something bigger and invite people. What was stopping me from even planning is the fact that my mom is not being supportive," she told ABC News radio. "It's like, okay do I really want to have a wedding and my mom may not show up or if she does show up she's going to be mean and negative? You know, you don't want the bad energy either."
Burruss has created a play loosely based on her life with Tucker and her own mother's issues accepting the union. Aside from Burruss, the play's stars include singers Eddie Levert, Shirley Murdock and D. Woods of Danity Kane, according to kandionline.com.
