Kandi Burruss' daughter Riley had graduated from high school and is off to college. Check out what her plans are here. 

Kandi Burruss' daughter Riley has graduated from high school and her proud mother shared the moment on her Instagram page.

The "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star posted a video of her daughter graduating with her class, all wearing red caps and gowns as well as masks to keep COVID-19 safe. 




The recent graduate posted a photo of herself with her high school diploma, revealing that she would soon be heading to New York University for college. 

In the photo shared on her Instagram, Riley wished all her classmates the best and also thanked her mother for her support. She said:

"So blessed to have received an amazing education, and special thanks to my amazing mom who is the reason I will be going to my dream school."

Last year, Riley


that she had been accepted into the NYU class of 2024, revealing that it had been her first choice. 

She let fans know that while she may be interested in working in the entertainment industry, she wanted to study to become an entertainment lawyer. 

The graduate has told her mother that she is not ready for Kandi to redo her room. 




This is not the first time that Riley will be living in the big apple as she stayed there while interning with a lawyer last year. 

She faced some criticism after it was discovered that she had been living in a $5,500 a month apartment. However, this time she will be living in dorms. Riley said:

"Yeah, I'll be in a dorm, don't worry guys! I won't be in an expensive apartment. I would love to be though! But yes. I'll be in a dorm."



While she may have no plans to move back home after college, the graduate has told her mother that she is not ready for Kandi to redo her room. 

And it seems like her mother may also be having a difficult time saying goodbye to her after saying that she was not ready for her to move out. 


Earlier this year, Kandi had thrown a small backyard party to celebrate her daughter's achievement, only inviting a few friends and family due to coronavirus restrictions. 

Riley posed with family and friends including her stepfather Todd Tucker, as well as her half-siblings, Ace and Blaze.
