Kandi Burruss is fiercely determined to marry love of her life Todd Tucker, but she keeps running up against obstacles. Namely, disapproval from, well, everyone. The latest Real Housewives of Atlanta personality to join the Todd Tucker haters? Kandi’s very own mother.
Last night, on the Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kandi Burruss faced still more disapproval surrounding her engagement to Todd Tucker. This time, the culprit was Kandi’s mother, better known as Mama Joyce. Voicing her clear ambivalence about the upcoming wedding, the Real Housewives mom admitted, “I’m still not sold on the groom yet…He ain’t givin’ you a dime. He’s sleepin, eatin’ on you…I don’t want you to be able to choke on a chicken bone, and he come over and tell me I got to get out.”
The argument culminated in Mama Joyce dissing Kandi’s engagement ring, causing the bride-to-be to burst into tears. A very upset Kandi later explained that Todd was only one of several men her cantankerous mama had attempted to scare away. “My mother doesn’t like anybody I date.”
Mama Joyce objected to this description of her boyfriend (and fiance) hating ways, admitting that the real problem was that Kandi never really got to know Todd. The worried mom told her daughter of her suspicions, explaining that a whole new (and far less likable) Todd Tucker would emerge in the aftermath of the wedding. Thus, in upsetting Kandi, Mama Joyce is merely trying to spare her from the pain of a future divorce.
Do you agree with Mama Joyce’s impression of Kandi Burruss’ fiance Todd Tucker? Feel free to share your opinion in the comments section below!
