After last night’s episode of ‘Housewives Of Atlanta‘ the net was brewing and throwing all types of questions at Kandi Burruss about how her Mom Joyce, was disrespectful to Kandi’s fiance Todd Rucker. Mama Joyce didn’t’t hold back during a tense dinner with Kandi and Todd.
In the most bizarre moment of the night, after Kandi left the room, Joyce started singing the Diana Ross classic “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough,” but added her own lyrics:
“Ain’t no mountain high enough. Ain’t no ocean deep enough. Ain’t no desert hot enough to keep me off your a**, baby!”
Todd was completely stunned by that…. LMAO… When Kandi asked what was going on, Joyce claimed, “We bonded!”
But nothing could be further from the truth, as Joyce has dissed Todd’s lack of money–and even intimated that Kandi’s friend Carmon, whom the music producer employs as an assistant, might be having a relationship with him. Kandi was baffled at her mom’s accusation. Mama went on with her rant which I felt was not her job to do….
“You’re thrifty. She did not pick a $30 or $40,000 ring because she knows the way you are. She stepped herself down for you. Men are supposed to be the providers.”
“And I do provide,” Todd insisted. “I provide love, happiness, stability.”
Mama Joyce objected, “What kind of stability?”
“Hold up! Lights get cut out at the Kandi Factory. You go down to light the gas lights and say, ‘I have stability?’ They’re not going to take that. I look at a man as a provider.”
Joyce also said the prenuptial agreement situation was troubling her. She wondered what Todd would think was fair if they wound up married only two years, and he told her he didn’t know.
“I feel you’re an opportunist,” she said, gesturing at Kandi’s lavish house. Gumbumpers, do you think Mama Joyce went too far???? Sound off…
Kandi bumped gums about it on her blog:
Well tonight’s episode was a little hard to watch. So many of you tweet about how you think I should deal with my mom. I love my mom, and I will always give her the utmost respect. I know she can be a little tough, but I believe she really does want the best for me even if I don’t like the way she goes about it. I’ve told her a million times that I’m not getting married without a pre-nup. Todd and I already agreed that we were doing one, but I don’t know why she feels like she has to be the one he negotiates it with. Todd did his best to not be disrespectful to my mom no matter what she said to him, which I’m thankful for, but he is more than a little tired of the drama though…
Everyone says stand up to your mama and blah, blah, blah, but believe it or not I do speak my mind to my mother. I just don’t say it in some crazy disrespectful way, because she is my mother. So to everyone who is screaming at me through the TV screen to “do something about my mom,” I’m not sure exactly what you expect me to do. I can only say how I feel, and if she doesn’t listen to me, then what? I don’t agree with my friend Carmon on how she said she would handle it if it were her mom. I don’t believe in cutting off your relationship with your mom. So for now I’m just hoping that over time things will work out for the best.
