OSN.....i feel so Sad for Kandi, after all her mother never liked Aj and didn't want kandi to marry him. She always would try to space herself out of the way(the mother). But i don't know maybe Aj had another girlfriend after him and Kandi broke up... but i know Kandi is taking it very hard... Kandi was my favorite house wive... Aj was always would space himself out... But i want to know why the engagement was called off was it the mothers fault? Signed by Miss popularity....
