Look, we admit we can be pretty hard on Kandi Burruss’s outspoken mother, Mama Joyce — and that’s not to say she doesn’t deserve it from time to time. She’s a tough cookie, and all of that disapproval and anger towards her now-son-in-law Todd Tucker typically has her in a permanent frown state. But Joyce just got a new, glamorous makeover, and it’s like we’re seeing a whole new woman!

Newlywed Kandi has had a bit of time on her hands, now that her hubby Todd is out in L.A. working on some of his TV projects currently in-production. And in between having a little fun with Mimi Faust’s sex tape, and pleading to Kenya Moore to #FreePorsha, she found some time to help spruce up Joyce — with the help of our fave Fashion Queens hairstylist, Derek J.

Kandi shared her hot mama’s new look on Instagram, writing, “My mom is looking too cute! @derekjhair did her hair &@latashawright just did her makeup & gave her the #WrightLook.”

Do you even recognize Miss Joyce here? The lady looks fierce and ready to hit the town in her zebra print dress and newly-sleek bob with bangs. Add in that killer eye makeup, and you’ve got somebody who could give her daughter a run for her money in the looks department!
