Have you ever had a parent dislike the person you’re dating? It was probably because your new main squeeze was a “bad influence” or “rude” or something, right? Not the case for Kandi Burruss, whose hard-to-please mother, Mama Joyce, has taken quite an issue with her now-husband Todd Tucker... because he made her gain weight?
Joyce brought up the surprising point both on the regular season of Real Housewives of Atlanta and on June 1’s premiere of Kandi’s wedding spin-off.
“To me, Todd doesn’t have Kandi’s best interests at heart,” she said on Sunday night, adding, “No way he would be letting Kandi gain weight the way she’s gaining weight.”
So what does Kandi think of Mama Joyce’s harsh criticism of her body? Let’s just say she doesn’t agree on the Todd front (and she shouldn’t!), but she does admit she’s not as in shape as she’s been in the past.
“That’s messed up,” Kandi told The YBF this week. “Let me just say, since I have been on the Housewives, I have gained 30 pounds, but that was before I met Todd. And then, you know, my lifestyle has changed. I haven’t been able to workout like I use and I love to go eat.”
We do too, girl! Despite what people say, somethings do taste better than skinny feels — in fact, a lot of things do! Though, the newlywed does concede she’d like to drop a few in the future.
“I feel like now, I’m not happy with my weight,” Kandi said. “If I could just knock off a good 15 to 20 pounds, I’ll be in the game now. You won’t be able to tell me nothing.”
We love you at any weight, Kandi!
