Kandi Burruss' ex-fiancé AJ 'hated' being on 'Housewives'

For Atlanta "Housewives" star Kandi Burruss, the tragic weekend death of her ex-fiancé Ashley "AJ" Jewell has only reminded her of how precious a commodity time can be. She writes about it in a recent blog posted on Hello Beautiful yesterday:

When you’re young you automatically assume that you got all the TIME in the world but then something like this happens and you realize that you’re not guaranteed TIME.

She also attempts to dispel the rumors and negative media portrayals that she feels persisted about Jewell as a result of their decision to expose their relationship on the ongoing season of the Bravo hit, "Real Housewives of Atlanta":

A.J had a great spirit and he was a good man. He was a father of six kids but had other children that he raised and loved like his own, including mine. So AJ was a father to many. It truly bothered him the way he has been portrayed in the media and actually it has bothered me too. AJ was NOT a “Scrub” like so many people like to blog and say. He had his own when we got together. He did not need me for financial gain, nor did he use me to gain some type of celebrity. When we got together we had no clue that we would be on t.v.. In all actuality, A.J hated and was uncomfortable with being on camera. He also hated that we made the decision to be on the show. Off camera A.J was very charismatic and a friend to many. He believed in God and always genuinely tried to do the right thing.
