Over the weekend, Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker made their love official, jumping the broom in Atlanta. While the Real Housewives of Atlanta reality star is still basking in being Mrs. Todd Tucker, Kandi’s mother, Mama Joyce doesn’t seem to be too thrilled.
If you’ve seen the BRAVO reality show, chances are you may not be too surprised. This season, viewers have watched a strained relationship between Mama Joyce, Kandi and Todd because of her (Mama Joyce’s) disapproval.
After the wedding, Mama Joyce told Too Fab,
I had no reason to bite my tongue. I’m not gonna be the one to stop her from jumping into the fire. I tried, I did all that ahead of time. Too late for me to pull out of it then, not gonna make a fool outta myself!
While admitting that the wedding was “beautiful,” Joyce still didn’t have many positive things to say about Todd.
Long as she’s happy, that’s the one that has to be happy. Doesn’t make no difference if I’m happy or not, she’s the one that has to live with him. I did everything I could do. If she’s jumping in the river with sharks, she’s gonna get chewed up. It’s not about me, whether I’m right or wrong. People show you their best when you’re dating them, so if she’s seeing the best now, the worst is yet to come.
Surprisingly, Mama Joyce says that she made a speech after the ceremony, telling Kandi and attendees:
I said, ‘She looks very happy. I’m happy that she’s happy and I hope that she continues to be happy. I hope she’s always as happy as she was last night.’
So, what’s Mama Joyce’s beef with her newly married son-in-law? Well it appears there was some drama with Todd having issues with the prenup that he was supposed to sign. Mama Joyce explains:
I got a little pissed at the bridegroom the night before this wedding. He kind of held up on signing the prenup and didn’t come to the rehearsal dinner because he didn’t want to sign it. His mom said she didn’t see no reason for him to have to sign because they were in love. He was the one who didn’t have a damn thing, but that’s another story. But from what I understand, he did sign.
Mama Joyce lightly adds:
I can’t wait till you see the wedding pictures … to see how beautiful I was.
The cameras were rolling, filming for Kandi’s wedding special, so we’ll watch this live and in color. Mama Joyce also has plans to write a book as well, where she may share more insight about her life and Kandi’s. P.S. Will things get better between Mama Joyce and Todd?
