The drama has been going strong all season for Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss, who’s engagement to Todd Tucker is causing tons of angst for Mama Joyce. During last night’s episode, everything came to a head while Kandi was trying on wedding dresses, and things nearly got out of control. But even after a near-fight at the bridal shop between Joyce and Carmon, Kandi is still very much on Team Joyce, and she let everyone know it during an emotional segment on Watch What Happens Live.
During the show, Andy Cohen told Kandi about some of the concerns that people have regarding Joyce’s behavior, and that Kandi seems content to just let her mom do whatever – even if it means living off her daughter’s wealth and engaging in public meltdowns. This clearly didn’t set well with Kandi, who jumped to Joyce’s defense, saying, “As her daughter, it’s my job to make sure the she’s good. She made sure that I was good growing up, I’m gonna make sure that she’s good.”She also said that she DOES stand up to her mom, even when it comes to her relationship with Todd. “I don’t care if she doesn’t like my relationship. That’s my mom,” Kandi said, beginning to get emotional.“I don’t care what y’all have to say. That’s my mama….she can have whatever she wants, ‘cause that’s my mama.” W-O-W. I’m pretty sure the entire audience threw up a little at that one.
That tearful statement certainly makes it clear who the most important person in Kandi’s life is, but where does that leave Todd? After Joyce’s bridal shop meltdown, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star’s aunts also confessed that they didn’t think she should marry Todd, and Todd has also mentioned a time or two that he’d be A-OK with his future wife occasionally taking a stand against her mom.But really, what are the chances of that happening? I’m guessing slim to none.
So what do you think is going to happen next for the world’s least harmonious trio? Will Kandi Burruss ever stand up to Mama Joyce? Will the wedding go on as planned? Tell us in the comments!
