Kandi Burruss’ 14-year-old daughter, Riley, is still a tad hesitant about possibly rekindling her relationship with her biological father, Russell “Block” Spencer.

Burruss first spoke about her first child’s father during a recent episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, suggesting that he is a “poster boy for deadbeat” and that he’s gone “years without checking in.”

She also explained during an emotional conversation with co-star, Shereé Whitfield, that after Riley was born, Russell was emphatic about not wanting to be in their lives. “I told him that day, ‘That’s fine, motherf*cker, because you’ll never have to worry about how she is. You’ll need her before she needs you.’ And I meant that sh*t. I meant it.”

But now, as chronicled on the hit Bravo series, Spencer is ready to step up and be a father, but Riley isn’t quite open to the idea.

While on the red carpet for the EBONY Power 100 gala on Thursday night, Kandi told HipHollywood exclusively that “we are still kind of in it. Still trying to figure it out. Riley’s dad has still been trying to reach out to try and start a relationship with her.”

The mother of two continued, “But on the other side of that coin, Riley’s not really into it, into the idea. I want to be positive and I try to encourage her to be open-minded, so that’s where we are at.”

According to the reality star, Spencer “wants to start trying but she [Riley] feels like, ‘I’m 14 honey, I don’t have time.'” Burruss, however, still feels like “it’s not too late because even with my own father, we had that weird non-communication and I just don’t want that for her.”

Kandi is also the mother to 11-month Ace Wells Tucker, whom she shares with husband, Todd Tucker.

Exclusive: So, Is The New “Friday” Movie Really Happening … Or Nah?!

There’s Friday, Next Friday, Friday After Next … and now maybe Last Friday?

Fans have been begging Ice Cube to bring back his uber popular Friday franchise for years. And now that his look-a-like son, O’Shea Jackson Jr., is killing the thespian game, just like his pops, a reboot seems all the more possible, right?

Just last week, comedian DC Young Fly posted a pic on Instagram teasing his fans about the possibility of himself and Jackson, Jr. filling the roles of Smokey (originally played by Chris Tucker) and Craig.

And of course fans went crazy. But when we chatted with O’Shea during the press day for his new action film “Den of Thieves”, he was a bit more reserved about the idea.
