Last night on The Housewives of Atlanta we learned about Russell “Block” Spencer, Kandi Burruss’ ex and dead-beat dad to daughter Riley, will be part of this season’s storyline.

Who is he? What does he want besides airtime? Bravo and Kandi participated in a Q & A to talk about the former couple’s relationship history.

How did Kandi and Block meet?

“I saw Block a few times at the radio station and probably a year after that I ran into him at a car dealership. That’s when we exchanged numbers and started hanging out.” Kandi explained.

Next, Bravo asked how long they were together as a couple.

We only dated a few months,” Kandi explained. “It was very short. I found out he was still in a relationship with his other kids’ mom, so I ended our relationship, but I was already pregnant with Riley.”

And finally, what does Block do for a living?

Kandi explained, “Block has a music label/music management company. Yung Joc and Boys in the Hood had hit records through Block’s label.”

Not exactly an in-depth interview. We learned much more during last night’s show, like how Block never supported Riley either financially or emotionally and from the beginning he told Kandi he wasn’t interested in being a father to Riley. Sheree put it best when she explained that some men have a difficult time being a good father if they didn’t have a good father in their life to show them how.
