Okay, Kandi Burruss is going to take her crying on the road today and appear on the Dr. Oz show with Todd to talk about her fertility issues.
I was really hoping they would be at the beginning. Alas, I am suffering through at juice cleanse double segment for you. You’re welcome. While we wait, do you guys think this is all for her spinoff storyline? Because despite all the on camera fighting, they seem all fine and dandy on twitter and Instagram.
In the opening package they state that Kandi and Todd’s marriage is stronger than ever. Dr. Oz says that their first year looked a bit rough. Kandi said it was a major adjustment period. He asks if they regret having it all play on television. Kandi says, “Well especially watching it all play out on this season, we could have kept some things to ourselves.” Todd says it was good they let it all play out. He says that people on the streets tell him every day that they learned something from it. Oh, I don’t think he said people on the streets that was probably my term. heh.
Dr. Oz asks how Kandi has changed over the years. He says he thinks she has become a bit more sensitive. Kandi is shocked. Todd isn’t referring to the constant crying. He says at first she was all rough and tough and now she is calmer and more relaxed. She is a little softer. Todd has a full on beard by the way.
Kandi says that Todd is pretty much the same. She says for a second he had some attitude and they were bumping heads. Really? These two have no problem discussing their marriage on TV that is for sure. Anyway, they were bumping heads about him working in LA for several months right after the marriage.
Dr. Oz asks about Mama Joyce. They say she has gotten a lot better. Todd thinks that a baby would make things better. Dr. Oz says with all of their traveling, they have limited opportunities to try to have a baby. Kandi says they have a two week rule where they cannot be apart for longer than two weeks. One or the other has to find a way to get together within any two week period.
Kandi talks about being frustrated when Todd was in LA and when he came back he did not want sex. She did wonder if he was getting it somewhere else. Todd points out that somebody missed the episode where they discussed all the times that Kandi denied Todd. Really? Who goes on TV to talk about their sex life in such detail on TV?
Finally, they talk about the infertility specialists. Kandi says that she has had a lot of issues with fibroids and has had surgery to remove them more than once. And now it seems the surgeries have left her with some scar tissue. Dr. Oz asks Kandi how she is coping with it emotionally. And she does not cry! She says she is fine. She is more of a solutions person. She is trying to figure out how to solve the problem. She has had surgery to try to remove the scar tissue, so they are in the next phase of trying to get pregnant.
Dr. Oz asks why they are being so public about this. Kandi says she is an open book. What you see is what you get. Mainly because she doesn’t want someone to have something they can bring up and put her on blast. Kandi has on a long wig and it looks great.
Dr. Oz brings on a fertility expert. Todd wants a boy. Todd says that if they could have done it the regular way that would have been nice. The fertility doctor says that lots of folks get fibroid. Kandi says the first time she had fibroid surgery it was the outpatient kind. Apparently they did not get the entire fibroid and she blead for two months straight and passed out on an airplane. She was traveling alone and it was really scary. So she changed doctors and had a myomectomy and had to have a blood transfusion. That doctor told her she needed to have a baby within five years because the fibroids may return. This was before Todd. Within the past couple of years, Kandi had fibroid within the uterine cavity. So she had to have another procedure to remove those and make room in the womb for a baby. Now she has scar tissue from that procedure that needs to be cleared so that there is room for the embryo to implant on normal tissue.
As if we did not pass Way Too Much Informationville three stops again, Dr Oz has two REAL uteruses for them to play with. Even with the requisite purple gloves. Todd is not amused. Kandi says it looks like a chitlin’. It sort of does. Everyone cracks up. Then they show the fibroids in a uterus. It’s all kind of gross. I don’t think Kandi or Todd actually touched anything.
So apparently the plan for Kandi is to remove the existing scar tissue in her uterus and then try in vitro. Dr. Oz says that stress really interferes with getting pregnancy and they need to try to distress their lives. Dr. Oz ended by telling them to work out their differences. Kandi seemed offended and responded to let him know they are on the same page.
That whole mention of in vitro was so quick, if you blinked you would have missed it. I could have done without watching this.
