Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker have teamed up with the staff of their four-year-old restaurant, Old Lady Gang, on an all-new Real Housewives of Atlanta spinoff that looks a lot like Lisa Vanderpump‘s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills spinoff, Vanderpump Rules.
Set inside the couple’s eatery in Atlanta, the drama-filled new series has everything from hookups to stained relationships to workplace tensions. And, when it comes to the cast, it seems that the original Old Lady Gang, which includes Kandi’s mom, Joyce “Mama Joyce” Jones, and aunts Bertha Jones and Nora Wilcox, will be serving up some much-needed comic relief.
“Four years ago my husband Todd and I started a family restaurant called Old Lady Gang. OLG was a hit,” Kandi tells the cameras as the just-released trailer begins.
“But now it’s dysfunctional, too,” Todd interjects. “Between your family and some of that stuff, those people are crazy in there.”
As viewers are taken inside of the Old Lady Gang restaurant, where three people were shot in February 2020, it is immediately clear that lines are blurred when it comes to the relationships between the staffers.
“Everybody’s f-cking, co-workers, the old lady gang,” Shawndreca Robinson tells her cast mates.
Following clips of a steamy photoshoot featuring Todd and some sort of procedure involving the backside of Kandi’s mom, Brian Redmond, not to be confused with Bryan Redmond, of The Real Housewives of Dallas, and Torin Mitchell‘s relationships is described as “tug and pull” as Dreca and Patrick Dallas confirm they are in a “situationship.”
As some may know, Patrick is Bertha’s grandson and when it comes to his romantic adventures, she’s not a fan. And, during one particular scene, he’s labeled a “ho.”
Elsewhere, manager Brandon Black Talks about his relationship with bartender Dom’Unique Variety and Phillip Frempong, the director of operations, confronts Kandi about having a more “professional environment” at the restaurant.
“I pay you, you don’t pay me!” Kandi says in a confessional.
Then, as one staffer claims “Kandi and Todd don’t give no —,” Todd considers firing someone as Kandi tells him, also in a confessional, “We can’t fire all of our people.”
The couple is also seen at odds after Kandi accuses Todd of taking away from one of their staff members, begins to cry, and storms off.
“We need to be on the same page,” she says in a later clip.
Also in the dramatic sneak peek at the series debut, Kandi’s mom is seen screaming at her sisters.
“I have never ever said that was my motherf-cking restaurant,” she yells.
“That’s a lie!” one fires back, adding, “Go to church!”
Kandi & the Gang season one premieres March 6 at 9/8c on Bravo.
