Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker’s new musical, A Mother’s Love opened Friday night and yours truly was on the red carpet for all of the action. The three-hour theatrical production was held at the Rialto Center for the Arts at GA State and was attending by a number of Kandi’s industry friends, celebrities and reality stars.
Spotted on the red carpet were former R&B Divas Nicci Gilbert and LaTocha Scott, Love and Hip Hop Atlanta’s Stevie J with Joseline Hernandez, Sabrina and Kadijah Rowe formerly of Big Rich Atlanta and Dice of La La’s Full Court. Kandi’s Real Housewives of Atlanta castmates Cynthia Bailey, Peter Thomas, Phaedra Parks, and Apollo Nida were also in the building along with music and entertainment guru, Mona Scott-Young.
Also in the audience were Tyler Perry, Rasheeda with Kirk Frost, DJ Fadelph, Music SoulChild, Monyetta Shaw, Toya Wright and a very slimmed-down Darwin Hobbs and his wife Traci.
A Mother’s Love is a story that captures the roller coaster relationship between a mother and daughter. It depicts how tough it can be for a mother to let go and allow her daughter to make her own decisions when it comes to love. The show features an all-star cast including Eddie Levert, Shirley Murdock, D. Woods of Danity Kane, Q Parker of 112, and RHOA Porsha Stewart. Also appearing in the show are award-winning Atlanta-based actresses Chandra Currelley and Adrienne Reynolds and YouTube star, Funky Dineva (who naturally stole the show).
