Kandi Burruss on Jet Magazine Cover

Songwriter and reality TV star Kandi Burruss is on the cover of the March 31st issue of JET Magazine. Inside, she reflects on her successful career, her upcoming marriage, and her strained relationship with her mom. She also opens up about how her fiancé helped her become a better businesswoman.

Here are some highlights from the interview:

Why her mom hates her fiancé:
“When my mother was younger, it was all about getting a man to be a provider. She leans toward a man who is financially more well-off than the dude who is just a good guy. I’ve dated guys who are more successful than me, and my mom is like, no matter what he does wrong, you have to work it out.”

How her fiancé has influenced her to become a better businesswoman:
“I love that Todd is affectionate and relationship-oriented. But he’s also a leader and a planner, and because of his production background he makes me a better businesswoman.”

About her work ethic and determination:
“When I speak about anything on camera I want to accomplish it before we finish taping. I am a ‘do what I say’ person. I want people to know I’m not a [phony]. I hate when people on reality shows mention how they want to do this and that, but you never hear of it again.”

Regarding her wedding date:
“We are moving forward. I have a date, but I’m not saying.”
