Kandi Burruss has revealed that she never planned on using this season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta to talk about her ex-partner’s role in his daughter’s life. Kandi has often talked about how Riley’s father isn’t in her life, but he has never been introduced on The Real Housewives of Atlanta. But Kandi had no choice when his girlfriend walked into her office and demanded that she let Riley hang out with her father. As Burruss explained, Riley is 14 years old and can make up her own decisions about who she wants to hang out with, so she doesn’t have to force her daughter to do anything.
According to a new Radar Online report, Kandi Burruss is now being accused of actually being a side chick back when she got pregnant with Riley. While Kandi has revealed that she and Riley’s father, Russell “Block” Spencer, were dating at the time she got pregnant, Spencer’s ex-wife is now speaking out about their marriage. Maybe she feels that Kandi is only sharing one side of the story and she wants the truth to be known. In an interview with Radar Online, Block’s ex-wife reveals that Kandi knew he was married.
“Kandi definitely knew what was going on with the situation,” the ex-wife revealed about Kandi Burruss, adding, “It’s sad that he’s not part of Riley’s life, but he was in a relationship with four other women at the time. She was a side chick, it was expected!”

Apparently, Block was married for 25 years, and his former wife reveals that Kandi Burruss not only knew about the pregnancy, but she was also the one who told her that her husband was cheating on her and that she was pregnant with a baby girl. Maybe Spencer’s then-wife thought that Kandi wanted money from her boyfriend now that she was going to be a mother.
“He cheated on me with Kandi,” she alleged, adding, “I told her then he wasn’t going to do anything. What does she expect? She knew what was going on, and now she wants to play the victim. Girl, you knew!”
Even though Kandi Burruss hasn’t really talked about her relationship with Block, his ex claims that the relationship didn’t last more than three months. Apparently, he was gone before she could even give birth. But Kandi and his ex-wife have tried to maintain a relationship with the children involved in the drama.
“She’s been to my house,” she has revealed about Burruss, adding, “I try to help with the situation and invite them over. We tried to establish a relationship with the younger kids.”

It is possible that Kandi doesn’t want to bring up the past and discuss it in heavy detail on The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Not only is her daughter 14 years old and can read the tabloids or watch Bravo to hear about the past, but she’s also married to Todd Tucker these days and has a new son. It may be unfair for her to talk about her ex-boyfriend on the show, especially with a new son and a husband.
But it is surprising that Block’s ex-wife is speaking out about the situation that Kandi has shared on The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Clearly, she felt that only one side of the story was being shared and she wanted to set the record clear about Kandi’s role in her marriage.
What do you think of Kandi Burruss being labeled as a side chick? Are you surprised that this story is surfacing now?
