During a recent episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kandi Burruss‘ husband Todd Tucker discussed opening very costly businesses, all funded by his wife’s money.
The scene was tense as Todd Tucker showed his wife the future location of OLé G, a new Mexican restaurant he intended to open. Kandi told him she’s concerned and suggested Todd pump the brakes since he’s already spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on various business that he hasn’t launched.
As it turns out, Kandi’s fears were spot on because Todd’s businesses are struggling. According to the Real Housewives of Atlanta star, Todd’s trucking company and their Old Lady Gang breakfast restaurant, are not profitable.
“We’ve taken on a lot of the new projects at once and all of them need to be brought to a certain level before they become profitable,” Kandi Burruss mentioned on her YouTube channel KandiOnline. “With it being an investment stage it does make it stressful when we continue to add things on to those things we already know we have to invest in.”
However, Todd Tucker believes the ups and downs of starting new ventures are just a part of “the process.”

Todd’s new business endeavors roughly cost $400,000 and counting.
During a talking head confessional Kandi Burruss said, “Todd has felt the pressure of him needing to make more money ever since we got together. Like, people have always questioned him being with me and whether he was with me for money and all this. So he’s always been in this position of him trying to prove to the world that he doesn’t need my money.”
The Real Housewives of Atlanta airs Sundays, at 8 p.m. ET, on Bravo.
