Plus, Todd Tucker comes through with a little shade of his own

Sunday night's episode of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" showed the closing of a deal between Phaedra Parks and Kandi Burruss' husband, Todd Tucker, in connection to a workout DVD made several years ago. While it seemed as though things were all good on the business side, there were obviously still a few personal issues to work out.

In a confessional video, Parks suggested Tucker was so persistent about getting his money because his television production work had dried up. Tucker, a former "RHOA" producer, has credits that include "Hollywood Divas," "My Super Sweet 16," "Kandi's Ski Trip" and more.

Burruss made sure to remind Parks of her husband's credits in the following Instagram post:


In 2015 My husband @todd167 had 3 shows that he was executive producer on to air on 3 different networks. People lie but credits don't. Check the credits! We're trying to move past this petty bs about this workout DVD but it's always tough to watch the drama play out today over things we've supposedly worked out already. I just want to make things clear for people who are watching this episode of RHOA. My husband is great at what he does & he's been successful at it. People always talk shit on this show but I hate when they try to discredit him with lies. Let me just clear up something for y'all. Todd & Phaedra talked years ago when she was pregnant with Dylan about him helping her with production for her pregnancy DVD. He was doing it as a friend because he said they could do it way cheaper than the company she worked with on her 1st workout DVD. She approved the budget & she paid the first 2 payments but never paid the third for whatever reason. This was well before Apollo went to jail. Todd sent final invoice emails but there was just excuses & no payment. I told him not to worry about it & give her time. But now years have passed. You know how it is when you have a friend who owes you money but they come around with new shit all the time but never mentions your money... That's why he was irritated. So to everyone who is coming at us in the chat box saying my husband waited for her husband to go to jail to ask for his money as if he was scared to ask, that is absolutely not true. He's was asking long before. Just never got all his money. Simple.... And Todd was never being mean or disrespectful to her. He always remained cordial. The video was shot & finalized in 2013. She was suppose to give him the photo she wanted to put on the DVD menu & final payment back then.... It's 2016 people. I hope this gives y'all some clarity. #NoShade #AllFacts

Tucker also came through with a response of his own, stating: "I just want to say to the TTP team we had a great 2015!! Three shows three different networks MTV, Bravo and TVOne. Production logo credit and Executive Producer Credit! People lie but credits don't! Check the credits!"

Looks like somebody didn't do their homework.
