Things reached a head in the latest emotional episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta when Kandi Burruss and fiancé Todd Tucker got into a serious discussion about Mama Joyce's controlling ways. Todd told a tearful Kandi that "Even for me, there's only a certain amount of time where I'm going to feel like, 'You know what, I love you, babe but we can be friends.'"
This week, Kandi, Todd and Mama Joyce all went on The View (and sat on one couch!) to set the record straight. After Mama Joyce listed some of her grievances with Todd, including the fact that he didn't have a job for a few months, Todd finally got a chance to respond directly to her. He explained how his career as a freelance producer meant that it was normal for him to sometimes be in between jobs. But he also addressed what caused him to give Kandi an ultimatum on the show.
"I think everyone has a breaking point," he said, referencing Joyce's unfounded accusations that he was cheating on Kandi. "You know, the lies, that stuff is really tough. I have a mom and it affects my mother, it affects my daughter. It affects Kandi's daughter."
Still, it doesn't look like he's really ready to leave our favorite record producer anytime soon. And maybe the mediated sit-down with Sherri Shepherd, Whoopi Goldberg, and Jerry O'Connell will ultimately help him and Joyce to put aside their differences for Kandi's sake.
What did you think of Todd's ultimatum? Was it fair? Sound off in the comments.
