“Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Kandi Burruss celebrated her birthday in style last night as she hosted a VIP preview party for her new Bravo reality series, “Kandi’s Ski Trip.”  The three-episode program follows newlyweds, Kandi and Todd Tucker, as they take their families on a Colorado ski trip with the hopes of blending them together. The trip took place after the sudden death of Todd’s mother, Ms. Sharon.

Most of the show’s cast were in attendance including Kandi’s hilariously funny Aunts Bertha and Nora, her daughter Riley, her cousin Weenie, DonJuan, Carmon and of course, Mama Joyce. The event took place at the Suite Food Lounge in downtown Atlanta and featured a variety of lush desserts and a post Q&A session led  by Atlanta’s V-103.


A number of Kandi’s friends were in attendance including her RHOA sisters Kenya Moore, Claudia Jordan, Demetria McKinney, and Cynthia Bailey. “Love and Hip-Hop Atlanta” stars Rasheeda and Kirk Frost were present as well as Toya Wright, Monyetta Shaw, Keshia Knight-Pulliam and Lelee from the R&B group SWV. Music executive Kawan “KP” Prather was spotted along with actresses Tammy McGarity and Rachelle Neal. Tameka “Tiny” Harris, Shekinah Jo, Phaedra Parks, Derek J, Geneva S. Thomas, Funky Dineva and rap legend, Uncle Luke made brief appearances.
