Bravo’s Kandi and The Gang spinoff premiered Sunday and some “fun shade” shenanigans ensued at Kandi and Todd’s premiere party.

As previously reported their Bravo spinoff series stars not only the Tuckers, but Kandi’s mother Mama Joyce, and Kandi’s audacious and outrageous Aunts, Nora Wilcox and Bertha Jones.

The show centers largely around the staff of their Old Lady Gang restaurant who are serving up more than southern fried food; they’re giving Bravo cameras healthy heapings of drama and fraternization as they live, work and play—sometimes with each other.

The OLG restaurant crew is comprised of Phillip Frempong, Shawndreca “Dreca” Robinson, Dom’Unique Variety, Torin Mitchell, Brandon Black, Patrick Dallas, Brian Redmond, Melvin Jones, and Rashard Roles.

The show also stars Kandi’s longtime right-hand man DonJuan Clark who was also in attendance at last night’s premiere and who told BOSSIP that he wants people to learn about the “opposite side of him” on this spinoff.

“I think a lot of times people only see the straight shooter side of me,” DonJuan told BOSSIP. “With these personalities, you also have to have a lot of compassion so I think you’ll get to see more sides of me.”

While walking the carpet Kandi and Todd told BOSSIP that they’re excited for fans to meet their colorful crew that includes bartenders, managers, hosts, and hostesses.

“Well, it’s because this show isn’t mainly about us, it’s about our family and the people that work here,” Kandi told BOSSIP. “You go get into their lives and their relationships, yeah we’re in it but there’s so much that you get from new people.”

Todd also spoke on the importance of #KandiAndThe Gang spotlighting the real deal about their Black-owned business.

“It’s not easy, said Todd to BOSSIP. “It doesn’t matter how much money you got, how much fame you got. You go through some of the same things as a person who doesn’t have exposure so it’s just showing that we’re right here with you.”

 

That’s not all however, Kandi and Todd also revealed which OLG employee is the shadiest!

“DonJuan can be shady,” said Todd to BOSSIP. “Phillip…”

“Shawndreca,” added Kandi with a laugh. “We caught her talking behind our back on there!”

OOP!

Shawndreca was in attendance last night as well and she told BOSSIP that the shadiest in the OLG bunch is actually none other than Kandi’s Aunt Bertha.

“She ain’t got no filter, no nothing, I can’t wait to be that age so I can say what I want,” Shawdreca told BOSSIP.

Is that true, Auntie? There’s no way that sweet and innocent-looking lady in middle is “shady”, right?

Or is this all just another “scheme that Todd set up?” as Aunt Bertha would say.

Shawndreca also added that Brian is the shadiest of the OLG restaurant staff.
