Despite reports she’s already secretly married to Todd Tucker, Kandi Burruss is saying she isn’t in a rush to walk down the aisle yet. She is opening up about her mother’s opinions of her fiancé in a new interview. “I haven’t decided yet if I want something that’s small and just us or if we wanted to do something bigger and invite people. What was stopping me from even planning is the fact that my mom [Joyce Jones] is not being supportive,” Kandi told ABC News Radio.
“It’s like, okay, do I really want to have a wedding and my mom may not show up or if she does show up she’s going to be mean and negative? You know, you don’t want the bad energy either,” Kandi explains. Kandi reveals Joyce’s problems with Todd started when she was watching daytime television. “I can tell you when it started,” she said. “Last year when Wendy Williams was commenting on our show every week and she was like, ‘[Tucker’s] an opportunist. I think he’s an opportunist.’ Next thing I know, my momma comes back and is like, ‘Wendy said that he was an opportunist.’”
Even though Joyce has her opinions of Todd, Kandi shares she’s madly in love with him. “I just love everything about him,” she gushed. “…He’s very smart. He’s very intelligent. He’s a leader. He’s not the type that’s going to try and tell me what to do, but he’s great at helping guide me in a way. And I think that I need a man that’s just as strong so he can deal with me because…I can be a little strong.”
