In the most recent episode of the show, hosted by Nischelle Turner, Burruss surprised her Aunt Bertha, whose home has served as a gathering place for the family for years.
Real Housewives fans might recognize Aunt Bertha from her appearances on the show, where she earned her nickname: the “side-eye queen of Atlanta.”
Burruss wasn’t afraid to get her hands dirty to make the renovation really special.
The sweet reveal was special from the very beginning, when Aunt Bertha saw her completely redesigned front porch – perfect for entertaining.
Upon stepping into the living room, Aunt Bertha and the rest of the family teared up. The team’s redesign made the room seem extra warm, but kept Aunt Bertha’s precious family photos on display.
And when Aunt Bertha saw her dining room and kitchen, she literally gasped for breath.

Burruss and the Secret Celebrity Renovation team knocked down a wall to make the entire dining area an open floor plan. The renovation was completed with a back patio for Bertha’s enjoyment.
