Classic Quotes by A.J. and Kandi Burruss about their relationship:

"We're on hiatus. He's a great guy and he's not the type to sit on his behind like a scrub, so it has nothing to do with that. Yes, he has a lot of children, and yes, I didn't know about them all at first but I got over it because as long as you handle your responsibility and spend time with your children it's not an issue for me. Another thing I want to set the record straight on is that AJ was married before. A lot of people make comments like, if he didn't marry his other children's mothers then why do you think he's going to marry you. Kandi Burruss 9/2009
"Things have changed because not only do I have my daughter living with me but now I am the legal guardian of AJ's 12-year-old twin daughters because his mother felt the responsibility was too much for her right now and she couldn't handle it anymore. He would have taken them with him, but they needed a strong female role model and wanted to stay with me. Just because AJ and I are together I have accepted them as my children the same way that my stepfather did me when I was their age and he and my mom separated. He continued do things with me as my father throughout my life." Kandi Burruss 9/2009
"Haters...haters. People are going to talk and speculate or whatever. People always want to know how I live my life. I live my life for my family and my kids. No, she didn't buy her own ring...what type of sense does that make." A.J. 9/17/2009
"Well, you know I just came out of a marriage and everybody was not happy about it in the beginning but it's cool now. Once I move pass a relationship, it's over and done with. We still communicate because we are raising a son together. Kandi and I, we came together to raise our kids together. She loves the kids and so do I. She's helping me raise my twins. We might not be together right now but we raise them together." A.J. 9/17/2009
"We...decided to take guardianship of my twins girls. It was just a better situation for them at the time. They came and stayed with us when we were together. They are in a place now where they have a roof and there own rooms and they are happy. Why should I take them out of that enviorment when they are happy and she's happy and I don't want to interuppt that. Plus Kandi is real adamant about helping me raise them. I have legal custody of three of my girls." A.J. 9/17/2009
"That doesn't make any sense. I came out of the relationship with less than what I came into the relationship with. So, how would I be using just talk and speculate because I don't talk about what I do and what I have going on. So, I just let them talk. She knows whats going on and I know whats going on. I'm not for the drama and I don't feed into it. This is my first interview and my last interview. I don't care what people say, they can say what they want." A.J. 9/17/2009
"We still remain close friends. We called the engagement off but we're still cool and we are still friends. We are raising the kids together and we still have a family together. Who's to say that later in the future or whatever it might be better but it's just a lot going on right now. I'm focusing on my business and she's focusing on her career. So you know, if time permits it might be or it might not be." A.J. 9/17/2009
"I didn't think the focus was going to be on me like that but I'm a team player. I was involved for my significant other and she wanted to do the show. I didn't even want to do the show because I hate to open myself up to criticism because my life is my life. People should worry about their own life. I'm pretty sure, everybody has skeletons in their own closet. Everybody wants to act so perfect but everybody makes mistakes. I've made mistakes in my past but I don't worry about the past. I worry about the future. That's what I'm about." A.J. 9/17/2009
"Well, I just don't feed into the negativity. People talk and say what they want to say but I'm me. I don't live my life to please anybody and she [Kandi] doesn't live her life that way either. We live our lives to please our family. It is what it is...I could care less about that." A.J. 9/17/2009
"Im just in one of those moods where I dont wanna talk, I dont wanna b held & told its gonna b ok. I just wanna cry myself 2 sleep, alone." Kandi Burruss 10/3/2009
