Kandi’s Mama Joyce Angry At Bravo, Blames Editing


Bravo has been accused of staging scenes and fights on The Real Housewives shows, and we have more proof that producers are creating drama just for the show. Throughout this season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, we have watched Kandi Burruss’ mother, Joyce, express her disapproval of Kandi’s fiancé, Todd Tucker. Now, Joyce is claiming in a new interview that Bravo producers edited her scenes to take her comments about Todd out of context. Joyce says the scenes Bravo are airing do not show the real events in their entirety and make her look bad.

“That upset me so bad,” Mama Joyce told RadarOnline. “When they showed the scene of me walking into the house and seeing all the pictures of Todd on the wall I was not talking about his pictures!” Exlaining, “I know Kandi had a decorator, her friend Carmon, and she put up all those pictures of Todd when he was a little boy.”

“I said, ‘Now that’s a damn shame,’ and what I really said was that shouldn’t be all him up there (on the wall). That shouldn’t be his wall. I said there were no pictures of Riley or me. I didn’t just say there should be a picture of me,“ Joyce explains. “I said the pictures of Riley should be much higher and the pictures of Kandi’s daughter should be up there, not just pictures of Todd. But they didn’t show that. They only showed me saying it shouldn’t be just him.”

“I don’t know why they did that,” Joyce says of the producer’s tricks. “I allowed it to be like that, I guess. I guess since they don’t pay me, they can do whatever they want.”

“I would never have agreed to it,” she said. “I am very upset about what they did and I don’t know if I’ll be back on the show.”

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.

    Kandi is such a smart woman. I can’t believe she would allow her mother to appear on the show unpaid.

      also…. The scene at the table is heavily edited as well. Joyce is done with her cake earlier in the scene (her dish is empty), but at the end of the scene, she is still eating it… stating “cakes good”.

    Well she shouldn’t have said that and what about her wanting to fight with Carmen. I thought that was a ugly scene, and not becoming of a older person. She needs to step back and if she’s not getting paid then All Well. I kknow how Kandi, feels but she needs to set boundaries, with Mamma Joyce. Joyce is my age and my mom, who’s going to be 95 in March, would never act like that. #justsaying

  • Wow!!! This changes EVERYTHING!!!!… roll eyes

    I agree, mama Joyce should not appear in the show at all, most especially when mama Joyce acting a fool. The castmembers already act foolish we don’t need additional foolery. Kandi’s a big girl, she can take care of herself.

    oh please….edit or no edit….mama Joyce has said what she has said and she has behaved horribly!! her behavior at the dress shop was deplorable! mama Joyce….own your bad behavior and fix it!

    ” since they don’t pay me” that’s the real reason why she would not want to continue. She probably thinks since she’s being featured in a storyline they will pay her now.

    Now are you against white people. Saying if Kandi and Todd get a divorce he may go marry a whit woman. You don’t stop, how you going to say bravo messed that one up by editing. I hope you don’t get your peach.
