Kandi Burruss’ new boyfriend may currently be making her extremely happy in her current love life, but that doesn’t mean her romance with Todd Tucker wasn’t met without some opposition and some professional problems. Kandi Burruss’ new boyfriend Todd Tucker came into her life in a very unexpected way. Kandi actually met Todd on the set of Real Housewives of Atlanta. He worked on the production staff, and according to the rules of VH1, romantic relationships between the talent and production staff is prohibited. Despite the strict policies enforced by the network, Kandi’s new boyfriend wasn’t willing to forgo his romantic relationship with the reality star.
Kandi started dating her new boyfriend Todd after they met while filming the girls’ trip to South Africa. Although the couple was well aware that VH1 prohibits cast members from dating crew members, the couple continued to see each other since they felt things were getting serious between them.
According to Kandi, Todd was willing to quit his job at VH1 to continue to date her. Luckily for Kandi’s new boyfriend Todd, they decided to assign him to another show and he was allowed to stay at the company.
In a recent interview with VH1’s “Big Morning Buzz,” Kandi opens up about how the couple overcame their issues with the network. She says:
“Well I didn’t think we were allowed to do it [date crew members], but he was willing to resign from the show. Yeah you know, we really got deep and we were like, ‘We got to make a decision.’ At first you know it was hush, hush. And then it just got to a point where we were like, you know what, we don’t care how anybody feels about it. So he doesn’t really work on our show anymore, he still works for the same company, he’s just on a different show.”
Kandi even talks more about what’s to come on Season 5 of RHOA. And she pretty much confirmed that Kenya Moore is going to be the one to cause the most drama this season.
