There were two notable birthday celebrations in Atlanta last night. Kandi Burruss hosted a viewing party for her show “Kandi’s Ski Trip,” where she also celebrated her 39th birthday. Also, former ATL mayor Andrew Young was treated to a birthday bash to ring in his 83rd birthday, with YBF folks like T.I., Keri Hilson, and Eudoxiee in attendance. Peep the party pics inside…

“Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Kandi Burruss had plenty to celebrate last night. The singer/reality star gathered her family and friends at the Suite Lounge in Atlanta for two reasons: 1. To check out the premiere episode of her spin-off special “Kandi’s Ski Trip,” which debuted on BRAVO last night. 2. To ring in her 39th birthday!

Of course, her husband Todd Tucker was right by her side.

And so was her mother Mama Joyce styling in a floral jumpsuit.

“RHOA” cast mates Claudia Jordan, Cynthia Bailey and Demetria McKinney came out to show support and party it up.

Kandi’s friend and former Xscape band mate Tiny Harris was in the mix for the festivities.

Oh…and look who else showed up. Kandi’s bestie Phaedra Parks. Looks like they squashed their beef and are back on good terms. Well good for them.

Amid her relationship drama, Kenya Moore came out for a good time with her co-stars.

Kandi’s friend Shekinah posed it up with Aunt Bertha.

Former “Cosby” star Keshia Knight Pulliam and “Atlanta Exes” star Monyetta Shaw came out to celebrate.

“Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” star Rasheeda, also rocking florals, was all smiles. Her husband Kirk Frost was also in attendance.

“LAHH ATL” stars Lil Scrappy and Momma Dee were there to wish the birthday girl a Happy Birthday.

And the whole clan gathered for a group shot. Fun times.

Elsewhere in Atlanta….

While his wife Tiny partied with Kandi for her birthday, T.I. got dapper to attend former Atlanta mayor and U.N. Ambassador Andrew Young’s 83rd birthday bash at the MarriottMarquis Hotel in downtown Atlanta. Andrew also doubled the fun as he celebrated his birthday along with his Inaugural Andrew J. Young International Leadership Awards.

During the night, T.I. rubbed elbows with retired heavyweight boxing champ Evander Holyfield and funnyman Chris Tucker.

The beautiful Keri Hilson came out to salute the trailblazer for all of his accomplishments and to celebrate another year of life.

A very pregnant Eudoxiee, who’s expecting her first child with husband Ludacris, was also in the mix.

Keri & Eudoxiee snapped it up throughout the event.

Fab directress Ava DuVernay came out to celebrate Andrew Young, snapping it up with the birthday boy, Chris Rock and Martin Luther King III (son of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.). The SELMA director was honored with an Andrew J. Young International Leadership Award. When accepting her award, she said, “He [Andrew] was really instrumental in the making of ‘Selma. I hope he really drinks in all the love and respect he receives.”

We don’t see R&B crooner Lyfe Jennings much, but he stepped out last night with a lady on his arm.

FOX 5 News anchor Cynne Simpson shined in a yellow gown.

The man of the hour was accompanied by his lovely wife wife Carolyn Young, who serves as the Vice Chair of the Andrew J. Young Foundation. Aww….

And he also made his rounds to chop it up with Evander and friends throughout the evening.

T.I. took the podium to say a few words as they celebrated Andrew’s birthday and honored the honorees.

And Chris and Cynne also took the stage to present. Fab times.
