The ex-fiance of Kandi Burruss, who stars on "Real Housewives of Atlanta," died Friday night after a brawl erupted at a club in Atlanta.I wonder how they're gonna blame Obama for this one.
Police say Ashley "A.J." Jewell suffered severe head injuries during a fight at the strip club Body Tap, was rushed to Piedmont Hospital, and later died, according to myfoxatlanta.com.
An arrest has been made. Fredrick Richardson has been charged with voluntary manslaughter. Another report says the fight erupted in a parking lot and that Kandi is "stunned and speechless" at the news of his death.
Kandi is the new 'Housewife' on season 2 of the show, now airing on Bravo. On the show, filmed months ago, she and A.J. are happily engaged and seen planning a wedding, despite her mother's objections to A.J. already having six children by multiple women.
Kandi, a single mother of one, has never been married. She is a Grammy-winner now working on launching a solo career.
I know this show is heavily scripted, and AJ prolly wasn't painted as the most sympathetic of characters at times, but I guess this is just another reminder that even reality TV has real people and real consequences involved.
Rest in peace, AJ.
