Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss is looking spring fresh on the newest cover of JET magazine!

The reality star opens up about balancing all her worlds, including being a singer, songwriter, producer, entrepreneur and of course being a reality go-to-girl.

“When I speak about anything on camera I want to accomplish it before we finish taping,” Kandi tells JET regarding her drive and ambition.  “I am a ‘do what I say’ person.  I want people to know I’m not a [phony].  I hate when people on reality shows mention how they want to do this and that, but you never hear of it again.”

She also talked about her successful adult toy line, Bedroom Kandi, her Atlanta-based studio, The Kandi Factory, and her musical, A Mother’s Love, which is set for DVD release next month.

And yes, she also talks about her relationship with Todd Tucker (and Mama Joyce too).

“I love that Todd is affectionate and relationship-oriented,” she said. “But he’s also a leader and a planner, and because of his production background he makes me a better businesswoman.”

Mama Joyce even got interviewed for the issue, saying that “if they are married and it lasts, I will be the first to apologize.”


Kandi adds: “when my mother was younger it was all about getting a man to be a provider. She leans toward a man who is financially more well-off than the dude who is just a good guy. I’ve dated guys who are more successful than me, and my mom is like, no matter what he does wrong, you have to work it out.”
