Now, any good daughter would help their mama out if she was in a financial pinch — especially if they had the copious means to do so like Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss. But as we learned in a sneak peek of Sunday night’s “Reunion, Part 2,” Kandi’s mother was using that money for other reasons — shopping and gambling!
Mama Joyce and Kandi stopped by radio station V-103 this week to talk about everything Kandi’s wedding and that much-talked-about RHoA reunion. But the hosts weren’t about to let the tough-talkin’ matriarch get away without touching on the fact that she apparently took out a credit card in Kandi’s name without her knowing!
Joyce had an explanation for it all — though we’re not sure exactly how good it was. “You know how I’m always ordering things on Home Shopping [Network], and what I had done was I had ordered — you know how they give you an extra 10 percent? — well, I had one in my name so then I just ordered one in her name so I could get another 10 percent!” she explained, adding, “But I was ordering something for her!”
“Whatever, Mama,” Kandi said laughing. “You would go to my mama’s house and she would have boxes of stuff. Like three or four of the same things!”
“Oh, you’re a hoarder!” one of the hosts proclaimed, to which Mama Joyce animatedly admitted, “Yes! I’m a hoarder!”
Well, that’s a new one to add to the list! Sounds like we don’t want to go to Joyce’s house anytime soon — for fear that the fruits of her HSN sprees might bury us alive! While it’s a relatively harmless addiction, we can’t imagine Kandi appreciates her mother spending her hard-earned cash on crap — though her mama said it was all her own money.
“But, the one thing about it, ask her who paid for it? Me!” Joyce insisted, though Kandi wasn’t about to argue with her.
“I’m not even going there this morning,” the newlywed countered. “I love my mother and I’m not going there.”
