"#ILoveMyLife! Performed #100 and celebrated my birthday in style and beauty with these ladies! Xoxo," saod McKinney, a singer and actress who sang at her own party.

While Bravo has remained officially quiet about the new additions to the show, McKinney and the other newcomer, Claudia Jordan, fit right in with the current stars.

NeNe Leakes, Kenya Moore, Cynthia Bailey, Porsha Williams, Phaedra Parks and Kandi Burruss will all return for Season 7, despite their differences.

Money talks for the #1 show in the franchise.

Things are about to get very crowded on The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

And, we're guessing, very dramatic.

Bravo has announced that Kandi Burruss, Kenya Moore, Cynthia Bailey, Phaedra Parks, NeNe Leakes and Porsha Williams will ALL return for new episodes of its hit series.

But the ladies will also be joined by two new faces:

Demetria McKinney, a singer/actress, will come on board as a full-time Housewife; while Claudia Jordan, a TV/radio personality, will recur on the program.

Kandi Burruss is currently on tour with the musical production "A Mother's Love," and TMZ has obtained a copy of The Real Housewives of Atlanta diva's backstage demands. As you may have guessed, they're hilariously over the top!

In fact, what should've been a simple list of politely-phrased requests has now given us some insight as to why Kandi's marriage to Todd Tucker is on the rocks already. Simply stated: she's freakin' insane!

Kandi Burruss, Cleavag

First, there's the chicken. Kandi insists on Popeye's. Her rider specifically states, "Please do not substitute for KFC or Church's, we know the difference." That may be the first time anyone has used the royal "we" in a statement about fast food fried chicken.

But don't go thinking that Kandi has something against KFC. No, in fact, her insane list indicates that she won't eat coleslaw from anywhere except KFC.

Believe it or not, it gets weirder. Kandi requires:

This week, on Kandi's Wedding Season 1 Episode 4, Todd receives a prenup from Kandi who wants him to sign it but he is "concerned." Cue the drama.

For whatever reason, Kandi’s lawyers waited until the last second to hand over the prenup and Todd didn’t appreciate being “handled” by his wife-to-be.

With barely any time to read, contest or discuss points in the settlement he doesn’t like - and there are a few - he felt he was getting the shaft up in here.

Kandi's Wedding Drama

For example, in the event of The Real Housewives of Atlanta star's demise, he would get nothing under this deal, which he and his lawyer find unfair.

Todd claims to have given up opportunities to work outside the U.S. based on how Kandi felt about that, and thus feels these sacrifices mean nothing to her.

Nor does the prenup credit him with any past or future work regarding Kandi's career, but Kandi’s lawyers don't want to budge and give an inch at all.

Meanwhile, the bachelor and bachelorette parties are underway and Todd and Kandi agreed to not doing anything too wild. Will they be true to their word?

Somewhere, Kandi Burruss' Mama Joyce is cackling to herself with joy, and/or telling the private investigator she has on retainer that he can double his fee.

According to a new report, the unhappily ever after she predicated (and has long been trying to ensure) for Kandi and Todd Tucker is already unfolding.

The reason? Not what you (or Joyce) might expect ...

As you know if you watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta online, Mama Joyce did everything she could to stop Kandi's Wedding from happening.

Short of literally killing Todd, she held nothing back.

Sadly for her, love conquers all, and they went through with it ... although married life has reportedly been tough on them, at least in the early going.

Not because Todd is a shady freeloader or because his dad is a pimp and his mom is a hoe (or so Joyce says), but for a simple, yet profound reason:

Todd Tucker's mother Sharon took on Kandi Burruss' Mama Joyce last night on Kandi's Wedding Season 1 Episode 3, making for a clash of the titans.

“I know you speak very negatively about my child,” Sharon tells Joyce, kicking off an exchange you knew was coming and you knew would end poorly.

Apparently Sharon has to watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta online AND has the misfortune of hanging out with Joyce in person. It's a tough combo.

Kandi's Mom Fights Todd's Mom

Todd was more than willing to let his mom have at it with Kandi’s. Burruss, as is usually the case, hates the confrontation but does little to stop it.

Mama Joyce, incredibly, becomes incredulous at the idea that she would try to "set up" Todd ... all she did was hire a P.I. to stalk his every move. Gosh.

“Stop threatening him!” Sharon says to her counterpart. “You set him up!”

“I never threatened him!” Mama Joyce fires back. “I did not set him up!’

Fingers are waved. B-words are exchanged. Joyce plays the victim.

The women have to be physically pulled apart by family members.

Money talks. Ditto ratings. With plenty of each to go around, all six stars of The Real Housewives of Atlanta are set to return for the upcoming Season 7 on Bravo!

Despite the ladies' differences, and rumors that at least one cast member would be out, every cast member has signed on to return for next winter's insanity.

In addition to Porsha Williams and Kenya Moore, fan faves Phaedra Parks, Cynthia Bailey, Kandi Burruss, and even NeNe Leakes have re-upped as well.

The incredibly explosive reunion had insiders calling it "highly doubtful" that both Kenya and Porsha would be back, while NeNe openly mused about leaving.

"For me, It's like a blessing and a curse," said the always-expressive reality star. "It has definitely opened up so many doors and opportunities for me.

"I have been able to do some of everything just from being on this platform," she explained. "But at the same time, it can be very negative and very draining.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta spinoff Kandi’s Wedding continued last night and if you thought Kandi's Mama Joyce was bad during the season?

Look out.

The woman is absolutely out of control and unabashed in her quest to make Todd Tucker look terrible. It's almost like she's in competition with herself.

What baseless claims, unnecessarily judgmental comments and downright harsh things can she say so you'll watch Kandi's Wedding online this week?

Mama Joyce on Kandi's Wedding

That's what it feels like, at least. Her latest allegations? Mama Joyce actually said that Todd’s long-deceased father was a pimp and his mom was a hoe.

“I’m tired of biting my tongue,” Todd tells Kandi, who only told him the first half of her mom's diatribe. “I can’t let this go on. I have to say something.”

He does.

Kandi's Wedding, The Real Housewives of Atlanta's latest spinoff, brought in big ratings for Bravo Sunday night - more so than previous wedding specials.

Somewhere, NeNe Leakes is rolling her eyes.

More than 2.4 million viewers tuned in to see Kandi's Wedding to Todd Tucker and all the comments Mama Joyce made about him and his family.

As such, it easily bested NeNe and Kim Zolciak's previous spinoffs. Does that mean Kandi is The Real Housewives of Atlanta fans' new favorite?

Not necessarily. Both Leakes and Zolciak earned solid ratings in their own right without the help of a scene-stealing pot-stirrer like Mama Joyce.

Or the explosive reunion special that led up to Kandi's, come to think of it. No event has generated more publicity for the franchise ... for better or worse.

She can thank Porsha Williams and Kenya Moore more than anyone else, but after hearing about her spinoff's huge ratings, Kandi thanked her fans:

The Real Housewives of Atlanta: Kandi's Wedding premiered last night on Bravo, and featured a heavy dose of the antagonist everyone loves to hate:

Mama Joyce!

Joyce steals the show, for better or worse, as you know if you watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta online. But she was far from the only source of drama.

From Kandi's choice of theme to her wedding planner's complete lack of experience planning weddings, the whole thing was off the proverbial chain.

The fact that she wanted a Coming to America-themed wedding, and for it to be inexpensive, yet apparently also have live animals says it all.

As does the fact that Kandi just hires her friends/assistants to plan her wedding and none of them seem to have the slightest clue what they're doing.

Perhaps most glaring? Asking a designer pal to design the dress ... just five weeks in advance of the big day. Oh, and eight bridesmaids dresses too.
