Kandi Burruss Responds to Wendy Williams’ Criticism of Her Engagement
By: Taren Vaughan
Kandi Burruss has been on cloud nine ever since the big announcement was made about her getting engaged to her boyfriend Todd Tucker. The newly engaged couple has been enjoying the loving responses that they have received from fans, family and friends on their engagement, Kandi showing off her ring after she was called out for appearing to be hiding it from everyone before the engagement officially became public knowledge. Wendy Williams however had her own thoughts about the engagement news as she slammed Kandi for jumping into things with Todd Tucker too quickly and said that she thought that Todd was an opportunist up to no good. By now, many people have gotten used to Wendy Williams and her often times reckless and offensive commentary, especially the celebrities that she refers to when she does it. Even though she knows quite well about Wendy Williams and her unfiltered comments, Kandi addressed the talk show host’s words during her recent appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. And Kandi said that what Wendy Williams had to say about her husband-to-be really got under her skin, Kandi saying that Todd is a great guy who never asks her for a dime of her money:
“That irritates me when Wendy (Williams) says stuff like that. Todd is a really good dude. He makes really good money doing what he does. He doesn’t ask me for anything.”
Wendy also added that she thought Kandi’s engagement was nothing but a stunt as a way to get Kandi and her future husband a spin off show of their own, some more words of Wendy’s that Kandi took offense to:
“I’m kind of offended. What are you trying to say? A guy wouldn’t want to date me? He just couldn’t like me?”
It looked for a minute that Kandi wasn’t going to even acknowledge Wendy’s bashing of her engagement as Kandi’s fans kept tweeting her about it. But with what Wendy said about her and her fiancé, Kandi just couldn’t let that go without saying her piece.
