Oh Mama Joyce! You keep talking so much smack about your daughter's fiance, but really you may have more in common with his than you think! Kandi Burruss' mother has made no secret for her disdain for Kandi's beau Todd Tucker.
"I felt that I was misrepresented because I’m not that type of person. I just want people to know that my main thing is that I love my daughter and I know my daughter loves me more than anything. There’s nothing I won’t do for her."
"They were making it seem like I was more worried about her taking care of me, which is not true because I take care of myself. My daughter will give me anything I want but I’m not the kind of mother that sits back and keeps my hand out and I never have been."
Mama Joyce has certainly been letting her crazy, spiteful, and angry flag fly this season on Real Housewives of Atlanta. But now she's claiming that it's totally not her fault as editing is making her look deranged. Um… I'd like to consult Carmon on this one!
Joyce also says she is so upset that she may never return to RHOA! Not only does Joyce blame the editors, she also blames Carmon for setting the stage for her flip outs.
Considering her daughter KandiBurrusshas admitted several times that family tension is seriously compromising her wedding plans, Mama Joyce's claims that Bravo manipulated her screen time to make her look like the future mother-in-law from hell doesn't exactly hold water with me, but that's what she claims.
“I know Kandi had a decorator, her friend Carmon – and she put up all those pictures of Todd when he was a little boy," Joycetells Radar Online. "When they showed the scene of me walking into the house and seeing all the pictures of Todd on the wall I was not talking about his pictures!”
For onceKenya Moore is sounding more sane than crazy. Fluke or… fluke? Reacting to last week's episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta where Mama Joyce Said Yes To The Cray-Cray (Say Yes To The Psych Ward?), Kenya offers some advice and some commentary.
"I recently served as maid of honor for one of my best friends. I consider myself as her family. When Mama Joyce told Carmon it was a family affair, I was offended for her. I have been in the company of Mama Joyce many times and she is a sweet, caring, warm person. Having said that, even when emotions are running high, it is never a reason to be taken out of character," Kenya writes in her Bravo blog. Quite agree!
"I was disappointed to see her take off her shoes as if to prepare for battle or throw them at Kandi [Burruss]’s BFF from childhood, whom she considers a daughter herself," Kenya continues. "Mama Joyce must contain her inner angst and allow Kandi to live her life, trust that Kandi will protect herself, and understand that she instilled the values in Kandi that have made her the sharp, successful business woman she is today."
I think it's safe to say that Apollo Nida and Kenya Moore won't be working together anytime in the near future.
Kenya calls outReal Housewives of Atlanta's Apollo for being an immature liar, slamming his obvious disrespect for his marriage to Phaedra Parks, among other things. "Watching Apollo repeatedly say he 'could have slept with me if he wanted to' and seeing the way he behaves in his marriage just reminds me of how immature, disrespectful, and dishonest he is to his wife, marriage, and in life. Leopards don’t change their spots. Lying landed him in prison. His mouth says one thing, but reality and his character speak volumes: If he could have, he would have. I’m done with this."
