Todd Tucker became the topic of conversation on Jan. 24 following the latest episode of “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” during which it was revealed he was the instigator of Cynthia Bailey’s infamous strippergate bachelorette party. Tucker recommended his wife Kandi Burruss throw the event during her girls trip to South Carolina.
Tucker, who was initially talking about Mike Hill’s tuxedo fitting and potential bachelor party ideas, told Burruss to get some strippers and suggested she contact those who helped plan her “Welcome to the Dungeon” burlesque show.
“Y’all should make this kind of bachelorette party on the trip. You should find some strippers. Call the people when we did our dungeon party. They know strippers everywhere and be like, yo, South Carolina strippers turn up.”
Fans’ reactions to the news were split. Some blamed Tucker for bringing up the idea, while others applauded the couple for being sexually liberated.
“So this was all Todd’s Fault😜😂.”
“So this was a scheme that Todd set up to come to us with the bs😩😩😩😩”
“I love their relationship.”
“I love Todd n kandi freaks🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥”
“Todd and Kandi be nasty lol.”
Last October, rumors began circulating that two unnamed “RHOA” stars had a threesome with a male stripper named BOLO at Bailey’s bachelorette party in Charleston, South Carolina. Blog sites later accused Porsha Williams and Tanya Sam of participating in the alleged encounter. Since those allegations, both Sam and BOLO have denied having any involvement. Sam has also reportedly left the show following the backlash.
Although fans deemed the couple as “freaky,” that wasn’t always the case. As the pair revealed during season 12 of the hit Bravo series while attending couples therapy, their grueling work schedules kept them from being emotionally connected while having sex.
Tucker explained, “I think we’ve been so focused on success that we’ve become great business partners. We love each other to death, but we just haven’t had time to be happy lately.”
Burruss added because of the constant stress, the couple would get into unwarranted arguments.”Every now and then we have our moments where it’s like, ‘[Grrr],’ because it’s been so much happening, we get stressed, and sometimes we can go off on each other. For me it typically spawns from something work-related.”
The pair collectively agreed that because they are both hardworking individuals and trying to balance life and work, the sex wasn’t “as good as it used to be.” The mother of three said, “It’s not as good as it used to be. Not saying the sex ain’t good, but meaning we haven’t been having sex as much.”
Tucker reiterated that statement by saying, “We get in the bed … get that out of our system … [and] we bot get back to work. We on some real ‘conquer the world’ stuff, and it’s a gift and a curse.”
