It’s heeeere! While the Real Housewives of Atlanta’’s sixth season bows out on Sunday, May 4 with its final reunion ep, it’s just making room for Kandi Burruss’s highly-anticipated wedding spin-off! We’ve watched Kandi and Todd Tucker fall in love, deal with meddling Mama Joyce, and become engaged, so why wouldn’t we see every little detail leading up to their big day?
As you probably expected, the Bravo wedding special will be dominated by a lot of Mama Joyce drama — ranging from simple disapproving looks and mutters to full on attempted attacks (eek!). As we know by now, Kandi’s mom kept her mouth shut when it counted — on the altar — and the adorable couple are officially man and wife. But there’s still plenty of craziness to be had in this series.
A few of our favorite moments from the sneak peek:
1) Kandi’s wedding whiteboard. Did you get a peep at the things on her dry erase checklist? There’s the normal stuff, like “venue,” “dress,” and “invitations”... and then all of a sudden “animals”?! Oh yea, the traditional wedding animal.
2) Apollo Nida’s face at Todd’s bachelor party. Has anyone ever looked so gleeful to see their pal get lapdanced upon? No way we’d let Apollo throw our man a bach celebration.
3) “Todd was raised by a pimp and a prostitute.” OK, we know we said we’d leave Mama Joyce out of this, but this was too much. The psychology theses that could be written about this woman...
4) Kandi’s slow tear while fighting with Carmon. This girl is looking to put Lauren Conrad out of business.
5) LION. ‘Nuff said.
Also, there’s that Todd’s mom on Mama Joyce fight that we heard about at the reunion — t’s about time someone stuck up for the man — and plenty of over-the-top splendor. Can’t wait for this one to air!
Real Housewives of Atlanta: Kandi's Wedding premieres June 1 at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo.
