As a staple of the show, Burruss has been very transparent with the events from her life. There have been many tragedies that have interrupted her constant string of wins including various contentious moments with her cast mates. Fans of the show know that there was a time when she and Porsha Williams were at odds because of lies told by former cast member Phaedra Parks. But one of the saddest tragedies in Kandi's story came when her former fiance Ashley Jewell was killed back in 2009.

Through her grief, Burruss eventually went on to marry Todd Tucker, with whom she worked on RHOA. After marrying the two of them welcomed a baby boy Ace into the word as Todd now became a cast member of the show. At one point the Tuckers decided they wanted to open up a restaurant inspired by Burrus' mother and two aunts called Old Lady Gang (or OLG). They went on to become very popular eateries in the Atlanta area (which is Burruss' hometown)
