‘Who is That Young Man?’ Todd Tucker Switches Up Style for the New Year After Kandi Burruss’ Mama Calls Him ‘a Lemon’

Todd Tucker looked like a brand new man as he stepped out with wife Kandi Burruss for New Year’s Eve.

The co-founder of Old Lady Gang dressed in a suave suit as he posed alongside Burruss, who kept her hair in a simple bob and wore a shimmery multi-colored dress.

“ISSA COUPLE! #TheTuckers lookin’ good for New Years! 👏🏾🥳🎉 #BoodUP #RHOA,” a “Real Housewives of Atlanta” fan account captioned the festive photo taken at the Hennessy Black Beautiful Bosses dinner on Dec. 31

Several fans remarked on how Tucker ditched the beard he sported when he went to the UNCF Mayor’s Masked Ball earlier this fall in favor of a low-shaved goatee. It made him look much more debonair.

“Alright now Todd looking like a snack.”

“Todd is looking extremely suave 👏🏾 Suit, different shapes facial hair to expose his cheekbones. Good look #kandibewinningoutchea.”

“@iph0neshawtyyy Todd looks like Martin Lawrence back in the Bad Boys days.”

“Pleaseeeeee tell me I’m NOT the ONLY one zoom in on Todd 🤣 WOW, 2019 thank you..”

Others couldn’t even recognize him.

“Todd……. doesn’t look like Todd.”

“That dont look like todd😐”

“Who is that young Man you with Kandi??? I’m telling Todd!!”

“Harpo who dis man??”

“Lol that do not look like him.”

“Omg Todd!!! I thought that was someone else y’all😍 look great!!!!!”

Tucker’s come-up with his looks comes after an episode of “RHOA” that aired Dec. 30 showing Burruss confronting her mother, Mama Joyce, about her renewed tension with her husband.

While chatting with Porsha Williams last year, Joyce said of Tucker that Burruss “took a lemon and made lemonade.”

When addressing how upset the remark made Tucker, Mama Joyce told Burruss, “I meant it as a compliment.”

“If they said you went from lemon to lemonade, I’m glad that lemon chose me!” she added. “Whoever got with you, if they a lemon, they couldn’t have got with you. If they a lemon, and you made lemonade, they couldn’t have picked a damn better lemon!”

Burruss, who noted Tucker was making six figures, explained her mom’s comment was a backhanded compliment. Then, Joyce exclaimed, “well, he wasn’t hot before he got with you.”

The pair visited with Tucker later in the episode, and Joyce was able to explain she had no ill-will against him. Instead, she said she was touched by the fact that Tucker took in Burruss’ teenage daughter Riley Burruss as his own.

“I just hope y’all will be together forever, loving each other and being the best partners y’all can possibly be because y’all got it going on,” Mama Joyce admitted.

The apology put the family back on track to being a happy one after Mama Joyce previously claimed Tucker was an opportunist even after he wed Burruss in 2014.
