The popular reality television series Real Housewives of Atlanta definitely offers its viewers unexpected twists and events from time to time, something that was reiterated in the latest episode of the show, when Todd Tucker was surprised to learn that the communication with his daughter, Kaela Tucker, needs improvement.
Even though Todd and Kaela have shown in the past that their relationship is solid and they have also gone to a strip club together for the celebration of Kaela’s 23rd birthday, it seems that both father and daughter have problems in understanding each other sometimes.
In the last episode of the show, which aired on Sunday, Kaela claimed that the only emotion her father showed to her was anger. To back up her words, the 23-year-old gave as an example the time when Todd did not speak to her for a month because they fought for something.
According to Todd’s wife, Kandi Burruss, her husband and his daughter indeed had some communication issues, and the mother of three said she was worried that in time, Todd might have troubles in reaching out to their youngest child, Blaze Tucker, who was born in November this year.
Kandi also claimed that although her spouse was terrific with their 3-year-old son, Ace, she felt he could be hard on Kaela sometimes, but she did not dare to say anything because he was her biological father.
Kandi revealed: “Todd is amazing with [their son] Ace. And I feel like Todd can be hard on Kaela, but because that is his biological daughter. I just step back. And I don’t know if it’s because it’s a girl, but it stresses me because we have a girl on the way, and I do know that you have to treat them differently. You gotta handle them differently.”

Watching the movie @whentheyseeus brought out so many emotions & I had so many questions about the #exonerated5. I sat down with one of them to #SpeakOnIt on my Youtube Page KandiOnline. I’m posting it today at 7pm! @todd167 & I represented yesterday with the T-shirt! You can get their shirt at https://parkmadisonnyc.com #exonerated5 #centralpark5 #WhenTheySeeUs
Todd, on the other hand, promised he would try to treat Kaela better in the future. He first learned about her existence in 2011 after her mother told him he was the father of the young girl.
One person said: “Kandi should have just left the part out about that being his daughter, 🙄 so she steps back! When you are in a relationship with a person that has kids! That kid becomes yours as well.🤷🏽♀️”
This family is trying to find the right balance.
