AceShowbiz - Riley Burruss and Kaela Tucker are stepsisters, but the treatment that they receive from their family is so different that it sparks concern between fans. Most of them put the blame on Todd Tucker, who treats his own daughter, Kaela, so badly while letting wife Kandi Burruss spoil her biological daughter as much as she wants.
In the latest episode of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta", Kandi was helping Riley move into a fancy New York apartment as she prepared for her internship. Kaela also planned to move to the Big Apple to pursue her dreams of working in the fashion industry, but her dad didn't even show any attempts to help her out and this made her frustrated.
Kaela called him out because of that, saying, "You don't show no emotion unless you're mad at me." She then added, "Remember when we didn't talk for a month?" In response, Todd recalled, "That was crazy. Yeah, she made me mad," to which Kandi replied, "I mean, both of y'all are real weird with that, Like, communication has to get better, people."
In the confessional, Kandi mentioned that Todd "is amazing to [our son] Ace," but when it comes to Kaela, "I definitely feel like Todd can be hard on Kaela." The Xscape singer said, "I don't know if it's because it's a girl, but it stresses me because we have a girl on the way, and I do know that you have to treat them differently. You gotta handle them differently."
Fans couldn't help but feel sorry for Kaela, and blamed Todd for his treatment to his daughter. "How are you comfortable making your child literally STRUGGLE to make it when she just looks around the corner and see the life Riley is afforded?" one said. "nah Todd is doing Kaela dirty, he's literally forcing her to struggle when she don't have too," someone else wrote.
Some others also put the blame on Kandi, but people have since come to her defense and pointed out that she isn't in the wrong. "Todd doesn't want Kandi to spend money on Kaela but didn't mind Kandi buying him a sports car," another commented. "Todd doesn't have to spoil Kaela BUT she also shouldn't have to witness Riley be spoiled! That whole apartment scene felt like they were rubbing her nose in Riley's privilege," one other wrote.
