Todd Tucker: I Am Not An Opportunist


Kandi Burruss’ Real Housewives of Atlanta spin-off show premiered Sunday night, and Kandi’s husband Todd Tucker is still speaking out to defend himself against claims he is an opportunist.

Speaking to Buzzfeed, Tucker said, “I am definitely not an opportunist. I didn’t enter this relationship expecting or wanting anything from Kandi. I was already in TV production when she and I first met, and I continue to do my thing. I am currently producing a show in L.A. which I did on my own, without any help from Kandi. When people say that, I think they are dealing with what is inside of them. It gets annoying, because why can’t I just love Kandi for her and not her money?”

Todd admits his road to the altar with Kandi was challenging. “The journey was like a heavy weight fighter who fought ten rounds and then he had to go fight ten more!” he says. “It was a tough journey, and it takes you back to past relationships when the woman says, ‘you didn’t fight for me.’ I now understand what that means now, because I fought with all of my energy for this relationship.”

But it was all worth it in the end, because Todd says newlywed life is “amazing.”
