Don’t play with her! We knew Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss would turn that viral ‘KFC moment’ into a bag and she did with a new commercial.
The new commercial features her 7-year-old son Ace Tucker capitalizes on a Season 14 episode of Bravo’s popular reality TV show where Burruss settles differences with fellow housewife Marlo Hampton over some good ole’ Kentucky Fried Chicken.
According to BravoTV:
The commercial began with Kandi and Ace sitting at a dining table as they prepared to eat the mouth-watering nuggets. But before they dug in, Ace decided to offer Kandi some “nuggets of wisdom.”
“Mommy, we need to talk,” Ace said as he proceeded to pull out a tablet. “Do you remember this?”
The little boy then played an iconic clip from RHOA Season 14, when Kandi and her castmate Marlo Hampton agreed to squash their beef over some KFC.
“So what did you learn?” Ace asked his mom after the video concluded.
“That I’ll be nice to anyone for some KFC?” Kandi responded, before reaching for the plate of nuggets.
“Not so fast, mommy,” Ace said, as pulled away the chicken and dangled a nugget in front of her face. “How are you gonna be your best self this year?”
“When they go low, I won’t go lower?” she replied.
“Good,” Ace said. “And if anyone says you’re not worldwide?”
“Just smile and ignore it?”
“That’s right,” Ace responded, as he dipped another nugget into some sauce. “And for this saucy bite, can I get a pet snake?”
“Ace, you can get the whole zoo,” said Kandi who then took a satisfying bite.
According to Black Enterprise the finger-licking project is a joint collaboration between Bravo and KFC in “support of the fast-food chain’s new fried chicken nuggets,” Bravo TV reported. It also highlights Burruss’ family hustle.
Having stepped on the scene in the 1990s as a member of the girl group Xscape, Burruss has built her wealth as singer/songwriter.
The Atlanta native is credited for penning mega-hits like Destiny Child’s “Bills, Bills, Bills” and “Bug a Boo”; “No Scrubs” by TLC and “X-Girlfriend” by Mariah Carey, to name a few.
Burruss added restaurateur to her portfolio, owning Blaze Steakhouse and two OLG (Old Lady Gang) locations in metro Atlanta—and she’s behind the boudoir in Bedroom Kandi, a line of sex-related niceties and services.
