It’s been a rough season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta for Kandi Burruss’ mom, Mama Joyce, who has been getting a lot of hate for her staunch disapproval of Kandi’s fiancé, Todd Tucker. In an interview with Ebony not long ago Joyce blamed Bravo and RHoA producers for the less than flattering way she’s been portrayed, saying that she was edited to look badly on the show.
In the Ebony interview Joyce said she's never been compensated for her time on the Bravo hit and even considered leaving after this season because of all the Todd backlash. The protective mama has also hired a PR firm to do damage control, and created her own Twitter account so she can communicate directly with the viewers.
Kandi stopped by NBC New York earlier this week for a chat, and although she talked mostly about her two week stint in the “hilarious” Off-Broadway show Newsical the Musical, Mama Joyce was also a topic of conversation.
When asked if things are any better between Todd and Mama Joyce these days, Kandi’s answer was very telling. “Well...she’s not a Todd fan but she and I are back talking again,” Kandi said of her mother. “We went through a little moment — she stopped talking to me!”
And what does Kandi think about Joyce’s theory that she’s simply getting a bad edit on RHoA.
“Whatever she said, I’ll just go with that!,” she dished with a laugh. Short, sweet, and very diplomatic — we like it!
