Kandi Burruss and her mother, the outspoken Mama Joyce, may not see eye to eye when it comes to her new husband, Todd Tucker, but that's not gonna stop Kandi from giving her mom credit where credit is due. In this case, that's her mother's newly slimmed-down figure. On tonight’s “Reunion, Part 2” episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta, Joyce revealed that she’d dropped a whopping 40 pounds, thanks to an interesting diet method. Her reality star recently took to Instagram to throw her mom some props for her amazing look.
"My mom looked hot at the reunion! #rhoa," Kandi gushed alongside the incredible picture.
We have to say that we totally agree! Rocking a hot pink dress and a huge grin, Mama Joyce looks absolutely gorgeous. What's more, she looks happy and seems to be oozing self-confidence. Can you blame her? Her transformation makes her look at least ten years younger!
Andy Cohen noticed Joyce’s transformation right away when she joined her daughter on the reunion couches. And he had the same question we had: How did she do it?
“Stress!” the tough cookie mother replies, adding, “I should have found Todd like 25 years ago. If I had known I was going to lose 40 pounds... I’ve been trying to lose weight, I tried every diet in the book.”
Aww, why’d you have to go and take a stab at Todd, Mama Joyce? Let’s just focus on how fabulous you look. She can claim that she didn't want to be at her daughter's wedding all she wants, but it's pretty clear that she cared enough to whip herself into serious mother-of-the-bride shape.
We also love her youthful haircut. Between the glossy curls and stylish bangs, Joyce has definitely gone from grandma to glam-ma, as NeNe Leakes likes to call herself.
