Why Doesn’t Mama Joyce Like Kandi Burruss’ Fiancé, Todd Tucker?


Mama Joyce has made it clear this season on The Real Housewives of Atlanta that she does not approve of Kandi Burruss’ fiancé, Todd Tucker. And in the clip below we learn more about Joyce’s problems with Todd. During a heated conversation, Joyce reveals that Kandi’s daughter, Riley, “doesn’t really like Todd.” Kandi shrugs off her mother’s claims and insists that she and Todd have a great time with Riley when it’s the three of them. Kandi also reveals in her interview that her mother talks negatively about Todd in front of Riley.

“I just want him to be able to provide for you,” Mama Joyce says. “Todd should have gone out and bought a REAL ring.” Kandi tells her mom that that Todd got her the ring that she asked for  and she didn’t have any clue how much it costs when she first saw it.

In another interview during Sunday night’s show, Kandi addresses her mother’s worries that she wouldn’t be taken care of if something ever happened to Kandi. “I don’t know why my mom would think I would allow my husband to stop me from doing things for her, because that’s just not going to happen.”

When Kandi asked her mom if she wants her to stay single forever, Joyce says, “No, you are supposed to find somebody that is comparable to you.” Kandi responds, “I’ve dated guys who have millions. They treat you like crap half the time, the have multiple women.” When Joyce suggests Kandi could date a policeman or a fireman, Kandi says, “I’m confused. He [Todd] makes more than a policeman or fireman.”

“My mother was cool with Todd in the beginning,” Kandi explains in her interview. “But I guess as time went on and she saw that we were serious, all of a sudden she starts trying to count his money. It just got bad.”
