By now, everyone knows that Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker are producing a stage play called A Mother’s Love. The play is set to run in Atlanta November 22-24 at the Rialto theater. The play features Kandi Buruss, Shirley Murdock, Eddie Levert and a slew of other big names. Anyway, while taking a break from our table read, I was blogging and minding my business when I caught wind of an argument that was taking place to the left of me. Apparently you can’t tell fables and fairy tales about your Atlanta roots when there are other native Atlantans in the vicinity to fact check you.
We have been having such a good time as a cast at rehearsal. I will try my hardest to capture the best behind the scenes moments of A Mother’s Love. See what happens when Kandi tried to trip Q. Parker up… Continue reading

Chile, it is day 1 of rehearsal for the stage play that Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker are producing entitled “A Mother’s Love”. I am actually writing this blog post from our table read right now. Chile i am overjoyed that music legend Shirley Murdock is sitting 2 seats down from me. I am screaming on the inside. I’ve been singing the hook to “I still Love You” all morning. At any rate, it is 1:40 and rehearsal is not scheduled to end until 5pm. Our time together has been well spent. We’ve read through the script 1 time, has sang a couple songs together and is really beginning to bond as a cast.
Since I am scheduled to be here for the next month from 10-5, I figured I’d might as well give y’all a behind the scenes all access pass to the making of the play that stars Kandi Burrus, D. Woods, Q. Parker, Shirley Murdock, Chandra Currelley, Porsha Stewart, Luscious, and The Doll Miss Funky Dineva Ross. That’s right, The Doll is about to make her Broadway musical debut hunty. Get into these behind the scenes photos Continue reading
Good girls always fall in love with bad boys. Y’all what is this strange but prevalent dichotomy all about? With Yandy being a smart successful business woman, it would seem that she would want another “straight lace” guy to build a life with, not a criminal. No tea no shade, but Yandy was fully aware that she is with a dude that makes his money in the streets so I don’t feel shady calling him a criminal. Phaedra & Apollo are/were another example of this very thing I’m talking about. I guess everybody is out trying to get money. I guess chile.. Anyway Yandy hat a sit down interview with the good folks over at ABC News Radio today and dished on Life without Mendeecees and even spilled a little tea on how he may not have to go to trial for drug trafficking.
Highlights from the interview:
Says Fiancé Mendeecees Harris Isn’t Facing 20 Years, May Not Go to Trial
“Well, he hasn’t gone to trial yet. And he might not have to,” Smith reveals. “So we’ll see. Everything is up in the air, but things are feeling positive.”
On Getting Used to Life Without Mendeecees Harris
“You learn to adjust. You never like it. It never feels good sleeping by yourself, but you adjust,” she says. “And that’s what I had to do. I had to adjust raising my little boy by myself. I had to adjust to sleeping alone at night. I had to adjust to the fact that we haven’t gotten married yet [and] a lot of the information wasn’t getting filtered to me the way that I wanted it to. …Every single day it’s a new struggle,” she continues. “You know, running three businesses and being a single mom it’s taught me definitely how to multitask and it’s taught me how to prioritize.”
Says Mendeecees Harris Loved Nicki Minaj’s Shout Out on “I’m Out”
“I got a call and it was, ‘Yandy. You heard about that yet?’ I’m like, ‘What are you talking about?’ …[He said,] ‘You know, when Nicki Minaj says your name on a song you’ve made it’ And I was like, ‘What are you talking about?’ Then he screamed: ‘She said my name on a record Yandy! She said my name on a record Yandy! You’ve gotta hear it!’
