Kandi Burruss Says She Does Stand Up For Herself To Mama Joyce


Kandi Burruss is taking to her Bravo Blog to react to her mother disrespecting Todd on The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Kandi says she has the utmost respect for her mother and will always treat her kindly. She reveals that she does stand up to her mother, but she doesn’t believe in cutting off a relationship with her mother.

Kandi writes, “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.”

  1. Kandi needs to see it from a different perspective. She’s not a child, it’s her mom acting like a child, and Kandi needs to respond with love, and direction, and parameters of what she will accept as she would her own child. Her mom bullies her, is cruel to her fiance’, and poisons her grandchild because she knows she can get away with it. It’s not harmless, and it’s causing damage to the family unit. Kandi needs to sit her down (privately) and say she is welcome as long as she isn’t hurtful, and not when she isn’t. Period.

  2. How long does she expect Todd to wait for her to talk with her mother. When watching the show she tends to laugh it off. It’s is not funny. The wedding dress episode was ridiculous. Her mother has spoken so negative she has even got her sisters involved. Taking off her she was not lady like. I do not expect her to disrespect her mother but what does she think her mother is doing to her. Is Kandi this protective of her mother when she dates? ( Does she date)
