Kandi Burruss Buys Mama Joyce A New House, Opens Up About Fears of Becoming a "Wicked Stepmother"
Kandi Burruss may seem to have parenting down to a science with daughter Riley, but that doesn’t mean she’s resting on her laurels.

In a new post on her blog, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star admits that she has new mom jitters all over again, now that she’s playing stepmother to Todd Tucker’s daughter, Kaela.

While Kaela is nearly a grown up, having recently turned 18 and started working at her first job, Kandi is still concerned that she’ll do something to mess up the happy family dynamic they’re all enjoying at the moment.

Todd is a lot sterner than I am, and he feels like I'm not stern enough. We are still trying to find our happy medium,” she says of the difficulties of blending her household with Todd’s. “

While Kandi and Todd’s parenting styles may differ, Kandi says she’s trying her best to make the home a happy and harmonious place for everyone who lives there. 

Admitting she was nervous about having Kaela move in, Kandi says, “Kaela is 18 and I want to build a good relationship with her. I never want her to feel like I'm the wicked step mom. I'm scared to put too many rules on her in fear of her feeling like I'm being too harsh, but there still have to be rules.”
