Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss has been having a rough week. She revealed in an interview with Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen that her mother, Mama Joyce, was not speaking to her. She said that her mother stopped talking to her after the last WWHL show because of how the people that called in to the show and the host of the show were insinuating that Mama Joyce was not so much worried about Kandi but her own financial state and that is why she is not crazy about Kandi’s relationship with fiancé Todd Tucker.
Kandi stated, “My mother was upset with you guys last week…She didn’t like the fact that you guys were saying that she needed me”.
She said that she is keeping her mother in check and feels that since her mother had to watch her and make sure that she was doing well for her whole life, she now has to return the favor and make sure that her mother is doing well too.
Viewers of RHOA and WWHL were suggesting that Kandi needed to be more assertive with her mother when it came to how Mama Joyce behaved about her relationship and her life in general. Kandi fought back and said that this was her mother and she could have what she wanted. She told the viewers to tweet what they wanted and say what they wanted about it, but in the end it didn’t matter. She doesn’t care if her mother is speaking to her or not, she is still going to give her what she wants. She does not care that her mother is not fond of her relationship to Tucker either. She blames her mother’s change in attitude about Tucker on Wendy Williams who always seemed to have something negative to say about it.
Kandi says that although her mother is not always respectful in the way she speaks to her, Kandi will still be respectful no matter what because at the end of the day, Mama Joyce is still her mother.
