“Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Kandi Burruss disclosed that she is not getting married after all.

The pressures of the show and the drama associated with marriage has doomed the couple, she said.

We’re on hiatus,” the former Xscape member said Friday on radio station WVEE’s “The Frank & Wanda show.”

Burruss, a new addition to the reality show, has been criticized by fans for wanting to marry “A.J.,” who is the father of six children.

Burruss’ harshest critic? Her mother.

“This is not the first time,” Burruss said, that her mother has tried to sabotage a relationship.

During a recent “Real Housewives of Atlanta” episode, Kandi’s mother walks off a photoshoot when A.J. sits down to take a picture with her, Kandi and her granddaughter.

The struggle and strife has apparently taken a toll on Kandi and her mother’s relationship.

Burruss said that it got to a point where she didn’t know if she wanted she and A.J.’s relationship to endure to spite her mother or because she was in love.

Another bombshell Burruss confirmed during a V-103 interview was that former Xscape member Tiny and A.J. did date previously. Albeit 10 years ago.

Burruss admitted that after the group broke up she and Tiny weren’t even on speaking terms, and that’s when A.J. and her former Xscape colleague dated.

But the girls mended fences, and when A.J. came around years later, Burruss said she ran it by Tiny to see if it was cool.

“[Tiny] said he was cool, that she wasn’t even thinking of him like that,” she said.

The two went out and “I really liked him,” Burruss said.

When asked about A.J.’s employment, Burruss kidded that he was sort of like “Tommy” on the 1990s sitcom “Martin,” but she said that he had several businesses, including a debts collection agency.

She refused to get into his past, telling Frank Ski to ask A.J. himself.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta” has been a ratings queen for Bravo. The second-season premiere earlier this month brought in the highest ratings of any “Real Housewives” franchise and was the highest-rated Thursday in Bravo’s history.

    Hello I know I am two years late but I don’t have cable or sattelite. I am just watching the show and I would to say I love it. Secondly the situation with Mr. A.J and Ms. Kandi from a spectators point of view the two seemed to be very happy other than the differences between him and her motrher. It does not matter if he has one or six kids even Ms. Landing stated he has his own and even with the kids they were a happy family and that he took care of them. Although the break they took happened for a reason even though they may have really been unsure why it occurred when it did God knows that does not make the hurt of loosing a loved one easier it was in God’s plan. I will continue to pray for Ms. Kandi and Mr. A.J children and family. God bless.
