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.”
