Kandi Burruss is “the queen” of The Real Housewives of Atlanta according to her husband, Todd Tucker. Kandi has been a full-time peach-holder since Season 2. Season 14 premiered earlier this month, minus Bravo veterans, Cynthia Bailey and Porsha Williams.
Kandi, 46, held onto her peach and even scored a new spinoff show, Kandi & the Gang. The successful songwriter, actress, and producer also enjoys success as a member of Xscape, a popular R&B group.
Kandi’s husband, Todd Tucker, spoke out during a recent episode of Kandi’s YouTube show, ‘Speak On It,’ after he was asked how if felt to hear cast members diss his wife. Todd brushed off being fazed by the comments and labeled Kandi “the queen” of the Bravo series.
“When they talk about you I’m like, – you’re the Queen,” Todd said.
Kandi, who appeared visibly surprised, replied—“Huh?”
Todd then told his wife that RHOA was “your show.”
“They have to go for the throne,” Todd continued. “Like, this is your show. I don’t care what nobody say, it’s yours, it’s been yours, and you’ve been on it the longest. You’ve used the platform for what it’s for and people see that and they want that.”
He added—“When you pop’n, when you crack’n – people got sh*t to say.”
“It’s some natural haters on your show and they’re going to naturally hate you.”
The video quickly made the rounds online, and fans had plenty to say about Todd’s assessment when “theneighborhoodtalk” posted the clip.

Many people slammed Todd’s proclamation and crowned Bravo alum, NeNe Leakes, the RHOA queen.
One user said—“Strong no Nene is and will forever be the queen of RHOA.”
Another wrote—“I think naynay will always be the queen of #RHOA he sounds like a #buster anyways.”
A viewer commented—“No….. he’s her husband so that’s why he said that …… but we all know it’s NENE. NEXT.”
Another chimed in—“No it’s nene and that’s not up for debate.”
A fan wrote—“oh i didn’t know her name was NENE?? todd bye..”
Another remarked—“she’s been on it the longest, but nene is the most influential cast member.”
While fans understood Todd praising his wife—many people noted that even Kandi seemed surprised by his remarks. Others pointed out that while Kandi ticks off key “Housewives” boxes like brains, wealth and influence, she rarely brings the heat on RHOA.
A fan wrote—“It’s a no I love kandi but her story line been boring since after her and Todd got married.”
Another user quipped—“Well, the Queen needs to bring more to the show cuz I be bored.”
“If she left no one would miss her though,” one viewer pointed out.
Another remarked—“She been on there the longest, but she the boring asf tho🥴”
Other comments included—
“Love Kandi. But her storylines are weak. Very boring.”
“Nene is the Queen 👑 Kandi can’t carry the show . She has a non threatening personality which is great to make people comfortable. Kandi just the smartest.”
“She the richest but not the queen.”
“No she’s not. She’s cool but she brings nothing to the show. She’s been on that long because the exec personally like her and she formed good working relationships. She is by far not the queen of anything.”
