Exclusive! Kandi Buruss Wore Tammy Rivera's Backup Wedding Gown On 'RHOA' Reunion

Plus, see all the jaw-dropping looks the rest of the cast wore.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta cast is known for serving up looks. Marlo Hampton is the designer label’s “Queen,” Porsha Williams has a new clothing line with Minxstar, Eva Marcille and Cynthia Bailey are former supermodels, while Nene Leakes and Kandi Buruss both have fashion boutiques. 

If you guys weren’t able to see the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion last night (April 8), don’t worry, because we have all of the fashion details covered. BET caught up with Kandi Burruss after the special was filmed, and she filled us in on how the ladies come up the colors of their extravagant gowns worn on the special. She said: 

“I know everybody was like, ‘Why is she wearing gold, again?’ Well, I wore gold again because they told me to wear gold. Basically, they normally tell you the color they want you to wear for the reunion. In the past, years ago, they used to try to tell us what to wear, [but] they stopped doing that. Now they’ll give you a color. This year, they gave me gold, and my team and I were like, ‘Why are we getting gold again? I've worn gold two years in a row.’ But now it's my third year in a row wearing gold. No more gold after this. I won’t be wearing gold again."

Kandi also dished about her girlfriend Tammy Rivera styling her for the special event, saying, “Our friend, Jodie, does both of our hair so I guess Jodie was telling her that I was supposed to wear gold again and so she hit me and was like, ‘Girl, I got the perfect dress for you.’

The mogul also mentions that Tammy had the stunning dress as an option for her recent wedding-vow renewal ceremony but didn’t get a chance to wear it and said, “She had the gold dress but had never worn it. It’s really a two-piece but I had it sewn together because I was scared, I didn’t want no belly to roll over. She sent me a picture of herself [in it] and was like, ‘You should wear it,’ and I was like, ‘OK.’”

Well, Kandi and the rest of the ladies looked stunning in part one of the reunion special.
