Sean Drakes, for the AJC
Burruss, a Grammy-winning songwriter and singer, displays her awards in the studio she built in her guest house. "Shortly after [a] party here a few years ago, somebody broke in and took my plaques," shares Burruss. "Some couldn't be replaced, for instance the TLC plaque for their 'FanMail' album." The collection of stolen original plaques were recently returned by a `Real Housewives' viewer who saw the episode with Burruss and A.J. installing replacement plaques.
