Despite all of the family and employee drama that viewers saw on the three-part Kandi Burruss spin-off, Kandi’s Ski Trip, all is well now — at least according to Kandi.
In a lengthy Instagram message that she posted after the airing of the finale on Sunday night, Kandi wrote that she loves her family and her employees/friends and that there’s no need to question them.
“Tonight was a very emotional finale of#kandisSkiTrip. Thanks to everybody that tuned in! The trip was crazy but we ended it on a good note & since then everybody has been getting along pretty good! For the most part anyway…. Lol! My family may be over the top but their mine & I love them! I love my employees/friends too. There’s no need to question what they do. The proof is in the pudding. I’m always productive & Have been able to accomplish amazing things & I don’t do it alone. I have a great team that go hard for me. @todd167 & I are doing great & yes he has been a very patient & understanding husband dealing with my fam but now my family is his too! We all mended & blended on this trip & I’m glad we did! #KandiFinale.”
The comment is a clear reference to all of the public criticism that Kandi’s mother, Mama Joyce, and her aunts have received for their seemingly-ungrateful and demanding behavior, as seen on the spin-off and on The Real Housewives of Atlanta. The comment was also a clear reference to Kandi’s employees/friends Carmon Cambrice and DonJuan Clark, who have been criticized for slacking off on their jobs and being disrespectful to Kandi as a boss. Kandi pointed out that her success shows that she has a great team behind her. The accompanying photo collage to the message shows Mama Joyce, Carmon, DonJuan, Kandi’s husband, Todd Tucker, and an aunt.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Kandi last week admitted that while it took Carmon longer than usual to get up to speed with her job, having a loyal friend as her assistant was worth the extra trouble.
Todd posted his own lengthy Instagram message in which he pointed out his and Kandi’s success in the entertainment business. Like Kandi, Todd believes that filming the spin-off has brought the entire family together.
“I want to Thank everyone for the support. Thank You for watching Kandi’s Ski Trip! This is the second special Kandi and I have Executive Produced and we have some new projects coming soon! This show means a lot to us not because we were EP’s but all the great things it did for our family! I hope you enjoyed and look out for future projects from Kandi Koated Ent. And TTucker Productions!”
On The Real Housewives of Atlanta, as well as on their wedding spin-off, Kandi’s Wedding, Todd’s true love for Kandi was constantly questioned by Mama Joyce. Mama Joyce, believing that Todd was just using Kandi and wanting Kandi to be with someone more on her level, frequently pointed out that he did not have as much money and success in the entertainment industry as her daughter.
Mama Joyce even accused Todd Tucker of having an affair with Carmon Cambrice, an accusation that she repeated on Kandi’s Skip Trip. Yet by the end of the special, Mama Joyce made up with Carmon and Todd and promised that she would butt out of Kandi’s affairs. How long will the peace last? Perhaps until the filming of the next Kandi Burruss spin-off?
