Did you happen to catch last night’s April 27 episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta? The second part of the Season 6 reunion featured an entertaining guest appearance by Kandi Burruss’s outspoken mother, Mama Joyce, that had us giggling into today. But Joyce’s zany comments and antics left some people wondering if she had been throwing back some drinks beforehand.
Not only did Mama Joyce hilariously “read” Cynthia Bailey for saying she lived off Kandi’s money, she also bragged about having “every kind of diamond that you want to think of, “amen!" Amen, indeed! Plus, when she was asked when was the last time she duked it out with someone, she responded, “I can still wrap up a good wig!” She even admitted that she would have stripped like NeNe Leakes did back in the day, if she’d had the chance.
We seconded Andy Cohen’s sentiment when asked Joyce if she was auditioning for a Housewife role (her response: “I’m waiting on my peach!”). But others saw her surprisingly candid and sometimes outrageous comments as the product of one too many glasses of wine backstage.
“Mama Joyce was obviously drinking backstage before the #RHOAReunion,” internet personality B. Scott tweeted during the ep, while another fan wrote, “I would like know what liquor was mama Joyce drinking on this reunion .. She was is too extra #RHOAReunion.”
But that idea was quickly squashed by Kandi during last night’s Watch What Happens Live, when she texted Andy to clarify that Joyce has never even had a drink before. Well, there you have it!
Do you believe that Joyce was simply high on the reunion drama, or was there something else at play? Tell us in the comments below.
