Mama Joyce talks crap about Phaedra

I’m still a little bit confused about how the friendship between Kandi Burruss and Phaedra Parks went south, but I’m just gonna blame Apollo Nida. That’s an easy thing to do – no one would ever go against someone hating on Apollo.

Unfortunately, now it’s just so awkward every time Kandi and Phaedra are on screen together. And I can’t imagine things are going well between them these days since Mama Joyce was talking all about Phaedra’s personal business on the last episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta.


It’s hard to tell if Mama Joyce really did all that research herself or if she was just representing Kandi’s clique by attacking Phaedra on her behalf. Sure, Kandi looked super uncomfortable during that scene, but it’s not as if she put a stop to the bashing.

When I saw Mama Joyce got her own interviews during the last episode, I took that as foreshadowing that she was going to be a major shit stirrer part of this season and it seems like Phaedra is going to be her main target. And Kandi is going to suffer the consequences.

It’s up for the debate whether Kandi encourages or condones Mama Joyce’s shady ways, but the woman is reality TV gold so I cannot look away.

In an interview with Bravo, Kandi was asked about Mama Joyce’s theories on Phaedra and her estranged relationship with Apollo.

Kandi admitted, “I was thinking, ‘Oh God!’ Any time my family or team says anything about Phaedra, all of Phaedra’s fans get mad at me as if I told them to say it.” Well yeah, she is the one who brought them on the show, and pretty much all of the family and friends are on Kandi’s payroll, so I can totally see why Phaedra fans could get the wrong idea when one of them talks negatively about her. Especially since Kandi really never puts an adamant stop to it.

At the same time, I have (maybe naively) always felt like Kandi was a nice person when I watch her on TV so I can’t see her setting up something like this. I feel like she’s too busy for petty bullshit, but what do I know?

Kandi also added, “My family, friends, and team all speak their mind. They do not hold back.”

Yeah, I’m sure they all genuinely do have their own opinions, especially about someone Kandi has had beef with, but I’m also sure Phaedra has to be fuming over them expressing those thoughts.
