Did the newly engaged reality star, Kandi Burruss, have an inkling she was going to get a sparkly addition on her jewelry collection when family and friends celebrated the New Year?
A day after Kandi’s exciting engagement news broke out to the media; she called radio personality Egypt Sherrod to share exclusive details of how the proposal actually went down.
Kandi told Egypt she was completely “clueless” the whole night even though there were obvious signs leading up to the big moment.
“I didn’t feel like he was being secretive,” the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” celebrity said about her fiancé, who according to US Weekly, was carrying around the engagement ring around for three to four months before proposing.
The 36-year-old explained that beau Todd Tucker gathered her friends around and wanted everyone to share individual 2013 resolutions. “So [Todd] started giving this speech, and was like ‘Oh yeah, you know last year was my year of preparation and this year is my year of execution, and what better way to start it out,’ and he pulled out this box and everyone started screaming,” described the Grammy award winner.
Kandi says initially she didn’t even realize what was happening because she was still trying to process her goals for the New Year. She did however express there were some waterworks, when Todd asked her. “You know I got a little teary-eyed,” she said. “It was a really emotional moment for me.”
Although Kandi said Todd never had the chance to get Kandi’s mother’s blessing, she did tell Egypt that Riley, Kandi’s teenage daughter, had one request: “I want you to make my mom happy.” Riley and her friends then followed behind Todd before the proposal and Kandi was still unaware of what was coming her way.
Nevertheless, Kandi is excited for the couple and would prefer a small, intimate wedding on her special day.
