This year’s version of I Dream Of NeNe has arrived and, thanks to the presence of Mama Joyce, it’s just as crazy as NeNe Leakes’ Real Housewives Of Atlanta spin-off. In addition to blasting Todd Tucker as usual, Kandi’s mom angered the Facebook community by criticizing her daughter’s body.
At first glance, Kandi Burruss might not seem like enough of a drama queen to pull off a Real Housewives Of Atlanta wedding spin-off. As Twitter followers point out, she’s no Kenya Moore or NeNe Leakes! But Kandi’s Wedding does boast the assistance of a very memorable drama mama: Kandi’s mother, Mama Joyce!
Last night marked the debut of Kandi’s Wedding — and it definitely did not disappoint! Mama Joyce was her usual critical self, sharing the predictable negative opinions about Todd Tucker and his alleged “prostitute” of a mother. But the feisty mother certainly did not stop there; in addition to trashing Todd’s financial status, she spoke ill of her own daughter. While out for lunch, Mama Joyce claimed that, in allowing Kandi to gain weight, Todd was not looking out for her daughter’s best interests.
Kandi’s aunts, unlike Mama Joyce, felt that it was unfair to criticize the beautiful reality star. But Kandi was certainly aware of her recent weight gain; she made it clear that her goal was to fit in a size four in time for the wedding. She hoped this would help her fend off the shotgun wedding rumors deriving from the rushed planning process and her slightly larger dress size.
Do you agree with Mama Joyce? Is it Todd Tucker’s responsibility to keep Kandi Burruss’ weight in check? Sound off in the comments section below!
