It was rumored that “Real Housewives Of Atlanta” star Kandi Burruss ended her friendship with gal pal Fantasia Barrino after her nuptials to hubby Todd Tucker last weekend. The tabloids reported that Tasia gave an explicit wedding speech, and it was so bad that “Kandi was horrified” and a bridesmaid had to rip the microphone from her hands.

The National Enquirer said the “American Idol” winner “started by saying, “Kandi, you are my m*therf**kin’ friend and I love you.” She went on to call the new Mrs. Tucker the “realest b*tch I know” and rambled on about her big booty.
But contrary to the reports, Kandi was not offended by her friend’s foul-mouthed address. The bride’s rep told TMZ “she was NOT horrified in the least” and “laughed her big a** off at Fantasia’s speech.” The rep added they had a blast together at the ceremony.
As we reported yesterday, newlyweds Kandi and Todd landed their own spinoff series on the Bravo network. The show’s working title it “The Real Housewives of Atlanta: Kandi’s Wedding.” We can’t wait to see this “vulgar” speech on our TV screens!
