They are really publicizing the hell out of this RHOA reunion. Today, Kandi was on Bethenny as part of the publicity tour. First of all, Kandi is rocking her wedding band with a new engagement ring. I know she caught a lot of flack for the nontraditional one she picked for herself in Vegas. She is still wearing the old one on her other hand. At first I was worried that she just succumbed to the pressure of a more traditional style but in reality the first one was not made to have a wedding band slide up against the band of the ring. Her new set is very pretty, modest and has the pave diamonds that she likes and goes will with the previous ring.
When asked how married life is, Kandi says it is good but two days after they got married, one of Todd’s shows he produces got picked up and he had to leave to go film. Todd has his own production company now! Kandi says they don’t have time for a real honeymoon for the next five months but they plan to take a weekend trip before then.
Mama Joyce is still not really giving him any credit. Kandi thinks that her mom just went with her feelings for so long that she just can’t bear to admit she was wrong. Kandi says Mama Joyce was there at the wedding but not smiling. Kandi says that she was so happy at the wedding that she could not stop doing the big cheesy grin. She felt like she had “the wrong smile” for some of her photos. In every picture with Mama Joyce and Kandi she says Mama Joyce has the stank face and Kandi has the over the top grin.
Kandi says I am not normally one to brag, but my wedding was the best wedding ever. Kandi says there were three hundred guests invited to her Coming to America themed wedding. (I think she should have called that something that does not involve Eddie Murphy imagery. Perhaps “Out of Africa” which, btw is the major them of my home décor, but I digress.) Musical performers included Doug E Fresh and Bell Biv Devoe at reception.
She talked about Fantasia and her foul-mouthed drunken toast. Kandi seems like she is tired of explaining this story. She just says that Tasia was having a lot of fun and she was not offended by any of it, she loves her.
Kandi says she invited all the housewives but Nene and Kenya were working out of town. So she did invite Kenya to the wedding. Kandi talks about the midget woman stripper and the old lady stripper that Phaedra brought to the bachelorette party.
Kandi is giddy and glowing and so happy when she talks about being married. It’s very sweet.
With regard to the reunion, Kandi says Porsha was provoked. Bethenny asked about the idiotic rumor that everyone is going to walk if they don’t keep Porsha. Kandi says she has not been told that Porsha is fired, but if they are getting rid of her it should not be for that. There have been other instances of violence, like when Nene choked Kim or when Sheree pulled Kim’s wig, She says they did not get fired so she doesn’t think it is fair to fire Porsha. Kandi says she wants everyone back next season. Kandi launches into how RHOA is real and not made up. I suppose she might even believe the things she is saying.
Bethenny asks how she is with Nene right now. She says she doesn’t necessarily think she is her best friend but they are cordial. She says she doesn’t know why she and Nene are not really cool. They just aren’t. Bethenny asks about the Peter and Nene confrontation and Bethenny was supportive of Peter. Kandi says there will be highly emotional moments on the reunion about that incident. Kandi says that Peter always has an opinion. Kandi said that Porsha ended up doing great in the play despite rough road to get her there. Kandi is just so damn happy. She loves Todd, she loves the play, she is loving life. So good to see that. Oh, and they want babies.
