Kandi Burruss Asks Fans for Advice


Last night Kandi Burruss and daughter Riley's fractured relationship with Riley's father was the focus of their Real Housewives of Atlanta storyline.

Now Kandi is asking her fans for help on how to deal with the situation...

Kandi opens up about her dilemma in a post on Instagram.

She looks great in that photo; That aside the best way to handle it would be privately and with mutual respect and restraint. Oh, and don't let Mama Joyce be involved in any way.

Everyone in ATL knows that Kandi was BLOCK sidepiece and she got pregnant when he was either married or in a long term relationship with someone else - I cant quite remember which one.

Either way a child was born and he def needs to step up... I had a hard time getting my dad to see that it was never my responsibility to establish the relationship, but it was his. I worked with my dad cause I could see he truly wanted to change and he was basically repeating the cycle my grandad had done with him.

Kandi needs to remain supportive and open but also guard Riley's heart. 14 is old enough to know right from wrong but its not old enough to make rational decisions like an adult.

I honestly feel like Block and his wife are just trying to get exposure, because this involves a kid this should have never made it to TV.

If you have a baby for a man in a relationship you can't complain when the man isn't there for the child IMO. Especially if he didn't tell you he wanted a child (nutting in you is not consent FYI). With that being said, Riley will get over it when she gets older. She will realize the situation her parents were in and may or may not forgive dude for not being there (her choice).

I say it's up to Riley. If she wants him around, then let them work it out. If not, tell him to kick rocks. I have my own deadbeat father on block. I'm now 30, and seen him 5 times in my lifetime, so it's nothing for me to tell him to F off.

If Kandi doesn't want this to be played out on the show then don't give it life by posting questions on Social Media. I think Riley is old enough to decide if she wants a relationship with her Dad and if he truly wants one with his daughter then he should proceed accordingly.

Hey Kandi stop with this ridiculous PR attempt. You joined the witches coven decades ago. If you really care just leave the show.

Nothing should be force, not even relaionships. Riley is not feeling it, don't force her

If a man doesn't TELL you he wants a child, then don't assume he does. Men like fucking raw, doesn't mean they want to or are ready to be fathers. Yes they should use condoms but they DONT.

There are some truly immature people in this comment section that should not be trying to give anyone advice on anything. Limited views on life or just plain stupid. Please stop it. Not all of you but most of you need to have a seat.

How Riley was conceived does not have anything to do with Riley. Her dad has not gotten over that yet 14 long years have pasted. Over a decade and you still have a major attitude for nothing. Why you so disrepectful,mad and rude about the whole situation.I don't believe this man cares anything about Riley,I think this jerk is trying to make a quick buck off of being messy. Even if it means trampling his daughter emtionally.

I agree with the majority of the LEVEL MINDED and MATURE people in this section.
11:21 is exactly right. Just like Masicka (sp?) even AFTER the nigga SAID he wants an abortion, she maintains that it's not about money, she "just wants him in her baby's life" BITCH WHY. Then has the nerve to try to put him on blast about it. Have fun trying to take him to court to make his spend time with his baby hoe. He made it CLEAR he didn't want.
2:51 is EXACTLY right, you cannot force people to live up to your expectations or level of maturity no matter how natural or morally right it seems. Kandi is making this more about herself and not her daughter, just like she made the decision to have the baby all about herself and took no ones else's feelings into consideration (ie her mother, her future child).
Now she's crying, Riley is OVER it right now and she is opening a can of worms.
She needs to let this be (if it's not for a story line).
Her father SHOULD reach out but he obviously has issues, Riley will when she's ready to and hopefully he will be ready to have a relationship with her as well.
Honestly, I would rather Riley be cold and cut off than hurt and full of pain and WANTING a relationship with that bum. Now THAT would be heartbreaking to watch.

As dumb as we say Porsha is, at least she straight up ASKED that nigga if he will be a father to her child BEFORE she got pregnant.

"Why you so disrepectful,mad and rude about the whole situation."

Because Kandi gave birth to a child that he DIDN'T WANT. Sad but true. They were only fuck buddies, of course he still pissed.

Wow, this comment section is very sad. Let's address the following commenters:

@11:21 - When 2 people have unprotected sex, they BOTH know the consequences and are both responsible for whatever occurs from thereafter. Would you feel the same way if this was a lifelong STD and not a child? You'd be wanting to go to court if someone gave you something & didn't care to mention it & not feel responsible for you catching it.

@5:06 - You would rather Riley be "cold & cut off" versus "full of pain & wanting a relationship"....you do realize that BOTH of those outcomes are terrible & she will need to seek therapy either way? Who are you people who think like this? My goodness lol

And @4:32, I agree with you.

I think that being un-invested emotionally in a relationship with someone that clearly is un-invested in you is better than pining for something that may never be. This lesson will carry her through out life and she will need less therapy than someone than oh say Kenya.
Riley can't help that her father selfish deadbeat bum, would you prefer she sit and moan about it and blame everything on it for the rest of her life or just accept that he's not a great dad, it's NOT her fault and just move on?

S/N I blame that Cris Kelly chick for ALL of this. She has no relationship to the child and she started all this mess for what... I don't know.

Sorry Kandi only doing this shit for ratings to stay on the show. These muthafuckas act like they can't tell these producers not to put private shit on TV. They sit back and allow camera's all up in their faces to record the bullshit and put it out on the shows months later after editing. Riley probably don't give a damn about none of this shit.

@5:50

And I would have every right to go to court, just like Kandi had every right to go to court to sue dude for child support. Still, you CANNOT force somebody to be who you want them to be. Riley's dad most likely did NOT want her and I doubt his feelings have changed.

Anonymous said...

@5:10 Just because you ask nicely for a co-parent doesn't mean that the man will follow through. Porsha's potential baby daddy can just want a nut & decide that he doesn't want to be bothered bc it was her dumb fault for wanting a child with a non-husband.

With that said, I think two mature adults can co-parent well without marriage but society has proven time and time again that people are not ready to co-parent w/out some type of commitment with the other person. Proceed with caution & do NOT try Porsha's approach at home lol

@6:20 No, you cannot force any man or woman to want the children that they had but we as a people and society have to be careful & better about accepting this type of behavior.

Riley WILL need therapy any way this goes & it is best to prevent having children under these conditions. There is nothing Kandi could have done to make Block a better person or parent & I am very sure he's just as much a deadbeat to his other children.

What we as Black people can do is start SHAMING men like Block into either 1. NOT have kids EVER or 2. Not be proud to show their face or hang out anywhere without feeling some type of way. I am sure Block's family & friends are well aware of this grown man's behavior & do want to be involved but that's why this cycle will continue.

I appreciate Block's girlfriend for stepping in. She's Caribbean & so am I. This is culturally UNACCEPTABLE behavior among most Caribbean groups. African American women accept a lot of b.s.

Why has this deadbeat shown up on the show? Whatever his motives are could have been discussed privately.okay you don't want to move forward or your not willing to try and have a meaningful relationship with Riley. You don't respect or like Kandi so what is your motivation. You are looking for exposure and money. You will use your unfortunate delimma as a opportunity to make money. You are the perfect stereotype of how America views black irresponsible men.
