YBF EXCLUSIVE: Kandi Burruss Dishes On Her Mom's Beef With Her Fiance

kandi burruss and a.j.

TheYBF.com spoke with the newest "ATL Housewife" Kandi Burruss about the upcoming season.  And you already know we had to ask about her alleged deadbeat daddy fiance Ashley Jewell.  We broke the exclusive right here back in March that her fiance had 6 kids and was well known around the ATL to not handle his daddy business.  So we asked Ms. Kandi about it and the rumor that her own mother is extra upset about the engagement.  And she kept it all the way real with us:
Yes it’s true. My fiancé does have 6 children. And that in itself is a big problem with my mother. I didn’t know going into the relationship exactly how many kids he had.  Or his situation with them.  So there was some deceit. She’s not happy at all.  They fought hard before taping the show and during the show.  Then after the show stopped taping she went in even harder. It’s a constant battle.
We also asked Kandi why people are calling her current fiancé a dead beat dad.  She tells us:
That I don’t know. Since we’ve been in a relationship, his kids come over A LOT. His twin daughters even live with us now.  But before we were together, I can’t say how he was as a dad since I don’t know. But as for now, he’s great with his kids.
I wonder if these two will actually make it to the alter.  But from the looks of it, moms aint having it.  Stay tuned for our full interview with Kandi and Lisa Wu-Hartwell posting today....

Is it really that bad in the

Is it really that bad in the ATL that she can't find a decent man with only one baby-momma,who pays his child support,and has no homo-tendencies.If the roles were reverse and this Ashley character Was bread winner I doubt honestly he would be with Kandi.This man is sloppy careless and a gold digger. Does this man even have a job or is he gonna be the house husband is that who is down "tha A". SMDH this makes no sense to me how can a person be so desperate for a man. this is not suppose to be..... smdh

Women need to wake up and

Women need to wake up and stop being so damned pressed for a man. A man having one kid by someone else is too many, but six is definitely out of the question. He looks shady. I don't care what his reason or excuse is for having all those children, the point is at some point he failed and kept failing to use protection to keep from having all those children. If we don't know anything else about him, we know one thing for sure and that is he knows how to make babies. Her mother is absolutely right. Mother knows best. She can do a lot better, she just seems a bit insecure and desperate.

Kandi was quoted in an

Kandi was quoted in an article saying, "...before we were together, I cant say how he was as a dad since I dont know..." Well Kandi, ASK somebody (s) who does know...the FOUR (4) baby mamas. They should also be able to shed some light on how he is as MAN. His level of honesty, financial responsibility, spiritual discipline, trustworthiness, etc. (all the thing that really matter). They have no reason to lie to U, they R probably, as happy 2 have him OUT of their life as U R 2 have him N yours. Its obvious he's nice in bed and talks a good game (i.e. all the kids) but I really hope at your age, with a DAUGTHER, U have higher principles/values...U can get 'bed' anywhere...U can TEACH it! Your mom, probably, expects more from U. U were my fav in XScape!

Love is a crazy thing.

Love is a crazy thing. Kandi, please let this man leave now, because eventually he will leave with your money. If no one in your family cares for him, then you need to take love out of the picture for one minute, and really take a good look at him as if he was dating your mother. Six kids and not married shows that he does not have self control... If you find yourself making excuses for him, then he indeed is the wrong man...Take it from me. When God has something good for you, the Devil will step in and try to Rob you of the blessing. Wait on God, this is not the one.

I think Kandi is confused....

I think Kandi is confused.... What can a deadbeat man do for her.I saw her perform in Korea for the Army and I looked up to her because she was a single parent like me.. Kandi ...Please listen to your mother.. she always knows best.. I will continue to be a Fan..

Why would Kandi even want someone like this? A man with 6 kids is not cool. I tell you black women are getting more desperate by the minute.

ItMustBeTheAge: How does

ItMustBeTheAge: How does this always become an ATL thing??? Can’t these be the same deseparate, silly women in Charlotte, Memphis, Houston or Miami,etc. Aren’t gay people everywhere last I checked? Reading blogs is taking away some people’s common sense. That is why human interaction away from the computer and domestic and international travel is necessary for our people.I notice the same people make the same comments about all of Atlanta EVERYTIME there is a post even remotely involving the city. Please get a life and travel to Atlanta for yourself instead of waiting on Natasha to blog dramatic stories to make you feel like you know what you are talking about. SMH. Yeah, Kandi and Tiny do NOT represent ALL women in Atlanta and Dwight does not represent all men there!

LSU GYRL~sensitive thugs

LSU GYRL~sensitive thugs you all need hugs...: Great List but this is mine:Do you believe in God?When was the last time you went to church?How do you and your MOM get along?What’s your ?How much do you have saved?Do you have a 401K or some type of set in place?Do you have kids? If so, how many and how many baby mothers?What is like with their mothers? Of not all of these questions should be asked on the first date but definitely before you fall in love because women make DUMB decisions when their heart is involved! Hells yeah! Also should be included is: When was last time you were tested for STDs and HIV? How often do you get tested? I BET she never even thought about that since knowing how many kids and if he's paying for them didn't seem important to her.

I thought she had more class

I thought she had more class than that.She needs to find out what problems he had with women in the past and why did he make such selfish choices as to having so many kids with people that he's not going to marry or be in long term relationships with.

She's a pretty successful girl. He's not even attractive. Why is she settling for less. Six kids come on now. Who wants to deal with that! She got her own child to deal with and give attention to. Now she's opening her house his children what a mess. Kandi your better that this baby girl! Kick that negro to the curb!

I don't think any woman,

I don't think any woman, particularly any married Black housewife with any self-respect would be on Real Housewives of [insert city]. 15 minutes of fame is not worth losing your self-respect over. Black women have enough to deal with, without purposely making caricatures out of ourselves.

Happy Friday 2 All Of

Happy Friday 2 All Of You!!! Well I can't remember what I saw it on, or maybe even heard it on, But Kandi's fiance is suppose to be one of the biggest King Pens in the A. It was said that this is why she is atrracted to him... unfortunately every dog has it day, and when his day come I pray she is not involved! We (women) should raise the bar, uphold standards,morals, and values at all cost! Time is precious,and that fact of the matter is, once it's wasted, you can't get it back! Ladie do your homework, if there is a problem that you can't solve, then ask ?'s. Then if the answer make no sense , then drop him like a bad habit.

divine Queen: Deceit is not

divine Queen: Deceit is not a good look and that would have been my red flag. Wow I thought she would bring something positive to the show,I see that it was the opposite to raise the ratings.So sad I agree with the other poster “stop settling for anything/drama” Please set some standards for yourself! Of course it was gonna be opposite u shouldve known that when they took Deshawn off the show, they dont want people on there who isnt gonna bring drama, although Lisa doesnt really bring drama, but she is in the middle of everyone else talking about each other.

Say what ýall want about nene but she seems to be the only one who has her stuff together she may be loud and over the top but her son is in college her husband takes care of them and you never hear to much bad press other then that time she moved out her rented home.... Kandi can do a lot better she need to ask what his std status is six kids equals having sex raw dog big no no and his name is ashley
southernbell's picture

I tell you why he wants to

I tell you why he wants to marry her she has a little money and if/when they get married..Her money is his money and his children mother are going to get on top of that take them to court to get an increase in childsupport! See her mom see "FREELOADER" from Ashley Jewel I mean the women in atl need to branch out and broaden their horizons There are plenty of FINE looking men in all nationalities that can either meet you or increase you (either on your level financially or above)

kandi is stupid because if

kandi is stupid because if she marry him she will pick up all the child support he owes! that's a fact! he is probably trying to marry her just for that reason. he knows she's getting a little change from the real housewives so he's getting in good!

KoolAid: They got exactly

KoolAid: They got exactly who they needed to paint the picture they’re trying to sell everybody. Look at the other Housewives show. Have you read as many “going broke” or “foreclosure” articles about them? Nope. Most networks take whatever chance they get to make ‘us’ and Kim (lol) look bad. EBT (BET) does it too and they’re supposed to be on that FUBU ish…for us, by us. You see how the Housewives of Atlanta gave Dashawn the boot right? She didn’t have enough drama and wasn’t ghetto enough. Kandi fits right in with the story they’re trying to tell. It was never reported before that her guy was nobody’s good thing. All of a sudden, her ‘desperate & dumb’ factor had to be raised to give the show what it needs - more ghetto drama. Yep I agree with you. And to piggyback on what u said, Bravo dumbed DeShawn down soooooo much by making her look like just a "Housewife" when in actuality DeShawn is one of the most successful realtors in the Atlanta area but they won't tell you that though. I was waiting to see if they ever would but they shut that right down. Ohh but on the Orange County season, that sorry Jeana chick was all the rage with her real estate!! I like the show for shits and giggle but Bravo needs more people.

Maybe Kandi didnt learn from

Maybe Kandi didnt learn from Usher! I kow first hand from a personal situation that if a woman marries a man and he isnt taking care of his children previous to their relationship.... then she isnt a woman. My sperm donar didnt do a d#mn thing for me and my mother and a year after I was born, he married another woman and she helped him by playing with my child support papers. Maybe this situation isnt that deep... but if she allows herself to marry a man who cant commit to his children who is to say he will commit to a relationship with her. JMO

Yea TI blings Tiny out with buys her her favorite things in the whole world - huge expensive purses - he dumped her ass quick when she had the audacity to think and do for herself. I refuse!!! Maybe I'll be single all my life. Oh well.

It's apparent she doesn't know the type of dude she's dealing with considering she didn't even know how many kids he had from the jump! Then she doesn't understand why ppl call him a "dead beat dad"...gimme a break. Common sense is most certainly lacking in this situation. She's just another ignorant woman with some notoriety, Xscape, that does NOT have her head on straight. Give me a break.

tiana: I don’t normally comment (longtime lurker), but this right here is plain foolishness. If a person can’t take care of their own children (financially AND emotionally), you should want nothing to do with them. Point blank.She reeks of pure desperation! Every single man out there can sense this trait in a woman and they always find a way to exploit it. SMH I agree 100%

I agree. d: Another sister

I agree. d: Another sister who is successful in her own right, settling. Please just raise the expectation bar a little bit. Really. We have to learn to be and be happy, expand who we will date (as in interracially) or wait for the right one. Come on, you started out with deceit so where will you finish? And 6 kids yet you didn’t take the time to find out what type of father he was before you met him. I’d say that’s important, kind of like anything else you should know. “Oh, I don’t know if he slept with men before me but he’s with me now”. Huh? That example may be extreme but you get it. Just….do….better.
