  • Contrary to popular belief, Kandi Burruss says she is not afraid to confront her all-up-in-my-relationship-business mother.

    The “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star took to her Bravo blog to set the record straight after receiving harsh criticism during last night’s episode. If you missed the show, Mama Joyce went in on Kandi’s fiancé Todd Tucker. She called him an opportunist and said “ain’t no river high enough, ain’t no ocean deep enough and ain’t no dessert hot enough to keep me off your ass, baby!”

    The former Xscape singer said the “episode was a little hard to watch,” but “believe it or not I do speak my mind to my mother.”

    “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,” she wrote. “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.”

    She went on to say that her fiancé did his best to be polite during their intense family dinner.

    “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,” she continued. “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.”

    1. I meant I respect the relationship you have with you mom!!! I don’t believe in that you can tell your mom how you feel and not disrespect at the same time. I don’t believe in cutting your mom off…You Go Kandi!

    2. Kandi I expect the relationship you have with your mom!!! I would have handled it the same way. That is your mom and she will always be there for you no matter what!!!!

    3. Kandi’s mom is too much. She is lonely and bitter and she need to be finding her a man and let her daughter live her life. I know she don;t want to disrespect her mom, but mom is not letting her live her life. Why did Joyce have to move in the guest house? I would tell my mom to let me live my life but I would not disrespect her in any way because she is still my mom. Joyce needs to get a life and if you noticed she said something about “we” instead of them. That’s the reason she don’t want Kandi to get married, she’s afraid of being cut off.

    4. @Deena & all the others, yes I agree with some of what your saying, but khandi has lost a brother. and lost a another man that was killed, and then she tried to move on with her life, I’m sure she had been devastated, she has been through a lot, but now she has found happiness, and her mother just needs to be supportive, and not give this man a hard time,before something happens to him. her mother is lonely and lonesome, & all she has is khandi and her grand-daughter, Mother joyce you are a great mom but you need to find a way to let khandi make her own decisions and put her big girl panties on. and let you know that she is a grown woman & she needs your support. there is no way I would have my mom talk to my future husband in that manner but mama joyce needs to show her daugther some respect as well…

    5. Kandi is a “PK” and should know what the Bible says about marriage, her dad is/was a pastor. She’s been successful with her music business but that other junk, not so successful. She doesn’t understand how blessed she is with a gift and talent in music, not that other junk, with that said: the Lord giveth and and the Lord can and will take it away if you abuse the gift and talent he blessed you with Kandi. Not much being said about her dad the pastor or whether or not he’s still a pastor. I understand her mom caring for her and being protective, but it seem like Kandi is protective of her mom and her drinking problem which could be why she really don’t want to go of her mom yet. I think Kandi takes care of her mother and drinking problem. Why would her mother appear on the show being intoxicated? What a Shame.

    6. Kandi’s mom seemed intoxicated. Kandi is a cry baby, she runs her mouth and gossip about other cast members other people but can’t handle it when she’s under fire. They all do it, drama gossip about each other but when the table turns they can’t handle the pressure. I don’t feel sorry for any of them FAKES!

    7. Totally agree with Lynne, Tammera, Deena

      Candy the Bible says when you are to be married you are to leave your mother and your father and become as one with your husband. You are not respecting him now and neither is your mother, that is not going to change. I love my mother but my husband comes first. My mom and your mom has lived their lives and has been allowed to make mistakes. If your engagement to Todd is ended it is your fault and not your mother’s. Sounds to me like she does not trust that she has raised you to make decisions about your life. Things will never change because you have allowed it to happen to many times. You shouldn’t be in an adult relationship until you are ready to be an adult.

      I respect the fact that Kandi doesn’t want to disrespect her mother, but I think her mother is disrespecting her relationship. Speaking your mind and saying what you feel but still allowing her mother to really go off on Todd is too much. Kandi all mothers want the best for their children but there is a very fine line when you are grown and mom is no longer taking care of you. Her opinion if valuable but it could also be detrimental to your relationship. The same way all of you were giving Porscha advice about a controlling man. Your mother can be controlling

    10. If I were in Kandi’s position, I would politely but adamantly let Mom know that she is out of line. I think that Kandi’s daughter is a wiser person than she is. I am so afraid that Kandi is gonna end up alone and bitter like her mother. I cannot figure why her mom is not trying to get her a man. She is not too old!!
