Kandi Burruss is on the cover of the April 2013 issue of UPSCALE Magazine. Kandi talks about her relationship and gives advice in special section of the magazine
On her relationship with fiancé Todd: “The cool thing about Todd and I is that he’s very smart, intelligent. We have so many ideas that we’re planning to make happen together. We’re workaholics. That’s something we’ve been talking about lately, trying to find more ‘us’ time.”
On everyone making a big deal about her suggesting a prenup: "I don’t see why it’s such a huge topic of conversation. Pre-nups should be standard. Those things should be put in place when everyone is thinking clear-minded. Why would you wait until y’all fall out? People do things to hurt the other when they’re hurt. If I was a man and made that [comment about pre-nups] I don’t think people would’ve even cared, probably.”
I've been casually dating this guy. He's really nice but I'm not really feeling him like that sexually. Should I kick rocks or hope it gets better? —Bianca, Denver, CO
Kick rocks [laughs]. The reason why is because old married couples always told me that there are three things to make a relationship work: financial stability, good communication and great sex. If any one of those things break down? The whole thing is falling apart. Think about it though—if the sex ain’t good, one of y’all will get bored and cheat or just be bored and tired of them. Financial stability— and I don’t mean rich. I just mean stable— being able to maintain and do day-to-day stuff. If the person never has financial stability and they’re never able to pull it together, then you’re having financial arguments and when you have arguments and y’all fighting all the time about money, then what happens? You don’t wanna have sex and the whole thing breaks down.
