‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ star ‘Mama’ Joyce talks Kandi’s Wedding, Prenup Drama, and Her Future with Todd
In a move that we all saw coming from a mile away, Joyce Jones, aka ‘Mama’ Joyce from The Real Housewives of Atlanta, has spoken out about her daughter’s recent wedding and allll the drama surrounding the big day.
If you haven’t been watching this season of Housewives, you’ve been missing out. Kandi Burruss has been hell bent on getting her mother to approve of Todd Tucker, whom she just married yesterday. There was even an entire segment on The View to do with the ordeal.
When asked whether or not she spoke up during the ceremony, which she said was “beautiful,” Joyce said, “I had no reason to bite my tongue. I’m not gonna be the one to stop her from jumping into the fire. I tried, I did all that ahead of time. Too late for me to pull out of it then, not gonna make a fool outta myself!”
“Long as she’s happy, that’s the one that has to be happy,” she adds. “Doesn’t make no difference if I’m happy or not, she’s the one that has to live with him. I did everything I could do. If she’s jumping in the river with sharks, she’s gonna get chewed up.”
Joyce did find it hard to hold back when it came to the money situation she’s been fighting all season long.
“I got a little pissed at the bridegroom the night before this wedding,” Joyce reveals. “He kind of held up on signing the prenup and didn’t come to the rehearsal dinner because he didn’t want to sign it.”
“His mom said she didn’t see no reason for him to have to sign because they were in love. He was the one who didn’t have a damn thing, but that’s another story,” she says. “But from what I understand, he did sign.”
I’m having trouble even finishing the post, because of how unintentionally funny Mama Joyce is. And whether or not her sentiment was obvious, Kandi seemed to have the best wedding she thought possible.
