Hiring a stripper named Redickulous to perform, um, magic tricks at Kandi Burruss' classy birthday party was a risque move on Phaedra Parks’ part, seeing as two of the Housewives — NeNe Leakes and Cynthia Bailey — even left the shindig as a result.

Yet, it was Kandi's mother, Joyce, who had the most dramatic exit of all.

After declaring that Redickulous' appearance was bulls#it and putting on a mad face while the women hooted and hollered, Mama Joyce yelled at Kandi in front of all her guests making the 35-year-old feel like she was five. She then stormed out of the building and told Kandi not to bother calling her. Harsh!

Considering that last season Mama Joyce was trading sex tips with the ladies and praising the wonders of her vibrator, we were a bit taken aback by her strong reaction to Redickulous. But, OK, whatever, so she doesn't like strippers. To each their own.

Here's the thing, though — why so mad at Kandi? After all, her daughter had no idea that Redickulous was scheduled as the evening's entertainment. 

Even if it was all staged, shouldn't Joyce's beef be with Phaedra?
