The brewing tension between Kandi Burruss‘ mother Joyce and her fiance Todd Tucker
(like the Family Guy character?!) finally came to a boil this week.
On the most recent episode of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, Mama Joyce made it abundantly clear that she does not care for her daughter Kandi’s fiance. And what are Joyce’s reasons? Well she claims she doesn’t like Todd because she doesn’t consider him a good provider — even though he works and contributes to the household according to Kandi. Reason #2? Mama Joyce also alleges she suspects Todd is cheating on Kandi with her best friend Carmon Cambrice. Quite scandalous no?! I however suspect Mama Joyce is just throwing out a bunch of reasons out there as she has no legitimate reason to dislike Todd.
Kandi, 37-years-old, is now speaking out as she attempts to defend her future husband to be. In a recent interview with ABC News Radio, Kandi states the REAL REASON Mama Joyce doesn’t like Todd is because of something she heard on the popular Wendy Williams talk show.
“I can tell you when it started. Last year when Wendy Williams was commenting on our show every week and she was like, ‘[Todd's] an opportunist. I think he’s an opportunist,’” recalled Kandi. “Next thing I know, my momma comes back and is like, ‘Wendy said that he was an opportunist.’”
And in her Bravo blog this week, Kandi responds to the viewers who say she needs to stand up to her mom. “Everyone says stand up to your mama and blah, blah, blah, but believe it or not I do speak my mind to my mother. I just don’t say it in some crazy disrespectful way, because she is my mother. So to everyone who is screaming at me through the TV screen to “do something about my mom,” I’m not sure exactly what you expect me to do. I can only say how I feel, and if she doesn’t listen to me, then what?” blogs Kandi.
And when it comes to the prenup issue, she insists Todd has agreed to sign one. “I’ve told her a million times that I’m not getting married without a pre-nup. Todd and I already agreed that we were doing one, but I don’t know why she feels like she has to be the one he negotiates it with. Todd did his best to not be disrespectful to my mom no matter what she said to him, which I’m thankful for, but he is more than a little tired of the drama though …” she adds.
So is cutting off her mom an option if she doesn’t start supporting her relationship? “I don’t agree with my friend Carmon on how she said she would handle it if it were her mom. I don’t believe in cutting off your relationship with your mom. So for now I’m just hoping that over time things will work out for the best,” she said.
I must say I’m a bit disappointed in Mama Joyce this season. It’s one thing to care about your daughter and voice your concerns to her. It’s however another thing to be over the top rude and controlling. She has definitely crossed the line multiple times. Even IF (a big IF) her intuition about Todd is right, she still needs to back off and allow her adult daughter to make her own choices. If this is all a big mistake, then it’s Kandi’s mistake to make. I’m also turned off that one of her major concerns seems to be financial ones as she has voiced her concerns numerous times that she’s scared Kandi will stop taking care of her if she marries Todd. Yikes. That sounds quite selfish to me Mama Joyce.
