Parks and Burruss are sparring over a prenatal workout video that Burruss’s husband, Todd Tucker, was supposed to produce. Burruss says Tucker is owed money; Parks says everything has been paid and she still does not have a video.
“He has been paid all his money, all the checks have [gone] through and I still don’t have a video that I could commercially release,” Parks told Andy Cohen when asked about the situation on the reunion show, a special sneak peek of which was obtained by Us Weekly.
Porsha Williams hopped into the fray, accusing Burruss of forming a “Kandi-coated gang” against Parks, but Burruss defended herself, saying her costars deserved criticism for suggesting her husband had not fulfilled his professional obligations.
Parks explained her side of the situation in greater detail in a January blog post.
“The issue of me owing money to Todd Tucker for production of a prenatal workout video has gotten completely misrepresented and needlessly become the source of harsh feelings,” she wrote. “Let me set the record straight for those who lack the necessary rudiments. First of all, this business matter is between TTucker Productions and Nida Fitness. Nida Fitness is co-owned by me and my husband. Nida Fitness hired TTucker Productions to produce a prenatal fitness video. Post-production on the video was never completed and therefore the final payment was not made. The project has been in limbo.
“It is disconcerting to see that Todd opted to discuss the matter with everyone, except the business owners of Nida Fitness; thereby turning this business matter into a personal attack and assault on my character. After I became aware that this matter was circulating the rumor mill, as a professional businesswoman, I invited Todd to come to my office to discuss. In good faith, I wrote him a check for half of the outstanding balance. Presently, I am still waiting on the final cut. Upon receipt of a commercially acceptable, finished product, I will cut the final check. Everybody knows that the final payment follows the final deliverable.”
And not for nothing, but Parks should know — she is an entertainment lawyer, after all.
