When Momma Joyce was first introduced to the viewers she appeared to be nice and a peace maker.  However, her personality changed with Kandi's first fiance.  Then when Todd came on the scene I was thinking at least Momma Joyce will be happy.  What a surprise that again she acted out about Kandi's choice.  All the viewers know that the real concern Momma Joyce has is that Kandi may not be as willing to provide financial support for her especially when Todd should have a say in how their money is spent.  After all, it is known Kandi gave Joyce her house after she and Todd moved into the new house.  She also makes way to much about jewelery and possessions with no apparent means of support other than Kandi.  In actuality she is just another one of these stage parents that feel that they should be taken care of because of the success of their child.  I don't care if Joyce worked two jobs to keep food on the table.  That is what a parent does and does it without expectation.  Bravo should not continue to have Joyce on the show.

I really wanted to watch Kandi's wedding episodes, but I just cannot bear watching Momma Joyce. If you are going to give her air time, why give her so much? No one enjoys watching a mother treating her daughter like that.

amen to mrs. kandi and todd tucker!  i'm glad they finally got married despite all the bullshit momma joyce was slinging their way.  and i agree with dcncc, nene and momma joyce are descipable and bringing down the show.  momma joyce needs to quit saying how everyone likes her and she's never lied.  because i dont see how anyone who can sit their as a woman, let alone a mother, and badmouth a child while shes in the room and ignore her and talk about how she'll never be as good as kandi's daughter and it do'nt matter cause she ain't famly is wrong.  you're just worried about your daughters money for yourself and after listening to your quotes, i doubt hardly anyone wants anything to do with you and you need  a lot more than god to strike you down for lying, you need him to strike you down for being manipulative, trying to mettle in your daughters happiness and keep her down and to yourself and being a bad mother.  kandi, i love you, you're an amazing ly strong woman who gets what she wants and i admire you for putting  up with your mother as gracefully as you did dispite how she was starting to affect you and your daughter especially on your weding day when riley blew up and made you cry.  bless you and todd.

Why Kandi continues to accept her cruelty and doesn't tell her how mean and hurtful she is, is beyond me.  Mother or not, she needs to be checked.   I certainly would not have included her or invited her because of her disrespect towards everyone and especially my future husband.  Why is it so hard for Kandi to put her mother in her place.  Mother or not, her behavior is unacceptable and the only way to check that is for people to tell her so, especially her daughter. If I were in Kandi's shoes, she would not grace my front door until she changed her negative opinion towards everyone.  She behaves as if she is the ruler and everyone must respect that and put up with her crap.   Someone needs to belly-flop her and while their at it, unlock her jaws so we can understand what she's saying. Awe...just take her off the show  along with Phadra and the sickening Miss USA.


Could be that Kandi stuck to her guns about the pre-nup because she knows that eventually Todd will get fed up with Joyce's remarks and Kandi's refusal to stand up to her and move out.  Maybe, he should have thought a little longer about the marriage and especially the pre-nup


On another note, I began watching from the get go and even though the ratings have climbed, the show has gotten rather raunchy for me.  When Kandi opened her sex toy store and Phadra demonstrated the use for some, was shocking and now that Kim is rejoining the show, I will not watch any longer..  She is an embarrassment to all females and a poor role model for her daughters.

The wedding....now that's another story.

What a beautiful wedding honoring and including those two beautiful daughters. What a selfish act on Joyce's part. She should have put on her big girl panties and did everything in her power to indulge her daughter and new son in law and Todds daughter on this day. Kandi tragically lost a fianc'e already. How SELFISH can someone be. You let your children make their choices and if in fact they fall short, you love them. How sad an selfish. You can go back and change your behavior. It broke my heart for Kandi and Todd. Mama Joyce should have been banned from the wedding. Todds mom was a lady. God bless them all.

I watch the show because I believe Ms. Kandis to be a fair lady.  A couple of considerations:  Kandis, Todd acutally deserves an initial lump sum of money to be placed in his account because of the unnecessary negative interactions with mama Joyce.  Also I hope he was not overlook  in case you pass before him.  Will he have to get out of the house in 30 days?  I know you are a fair woman and will address or have addressed these challenges. Also, he did seem under duress when signing the prenup.  He really loves you!

I am so glad Kandi and Todd are married now. I agreed with Kandi concerning the Pre-nup. She is a smart woman. But, I won't watch Atlanta anymore because of Joyce & Ne Ne. They are despicable in EVERY way.

Please take mama joyce off the show. She acts like a spoiled brat. the only reason she don't like Todd is because she don't want to lose her free lunch. I will have to stop watching if she stays on.

And Kandi, I can't believe you give Todd the prenup 3'days before you get married and expect him to sign everything and not question anything. I'm starting to think that man is a fool to marry you. Not only will he have to deal with your momma and all her demeaning comments but he is going to have to deal with a wife who has been brainwashed to believe he is only after your money. I CAN NOT BELIEVE YOU EXPECTED HIM TO BE OK WITH THE PART OF THE PRENUP THAT SAYS IF YOU DIE, HE GETS NOTHING!!!! Unbelievable!! Let me guess.......it will all go to your momma??!! One would think that when you are in love with someone, you would want to make sure that your spouse is taken care in the event that you pass away. And btw, I wouldn't believe everything your momma has said about your daddy either. Her colors shining bright. WAKE UP!!

Kandi, I also want to comment on the interview when you were asked how you felt about the blow up between yours and Todd's momma. The reason Todd didn't grab his mom was because he knew his mom has self control, class and wouldn't lose control like your mom would. One thing for sure, you must have gotten your class from your daddy because momma Joyce has none. An edjamucation would do your momma some good too. The unedjamucated resort to violence. They live a life of frustration because they don't have enough sense to get out of their own way so they take it out on others!

Kandi, your momma is acting like a spoiled rotten kid that isn't getting her way! She takes credit for raising such an intelligent & successful daughter but she doesn't think you are intelligent enough to choose your life partner? Wake up, she's only worried about YOUR money because she's afraid her gravy train is coming to a halt if you get married. I don't blame Todd for not signing the one sided prenup either! That had to be hurtful to him. He had to vacate the house w/in 30 days? Really? What kids were involved like he said? You're starting to act like your momma. Run Todd Run!!!

As more than a grown woman you should be a shame of you're self. Here are some words of wisdom step a side and let you're daughter be a grown women if you say raised her and you put you're all in like you said you did she should have made the right choice Right.

I feel as though I can once again call you MAMA JOYCE, you have redeemed yourself & that's wonderful. I'd like to apologize for jumping the gun on you and I clearly understand why you are so overbearing with Kandi. Please continue to wear your heart on you sleeve so all can see how truly beautiful you are ;-)

Much Love!

I hope Bravo doesn't keep Joyce on the show too much, because every time that woman talks I get a brain freeze. I wonder if they can find a straight jacket for her mouth!

There was a time when I tried to understand Joyce, I thought that maybe she was misunderstood, but I woke up with an epiphany that Joyce escaped from an asylum and they don't want her back! their're not looking for her! You can't treat everything. Especially a woman who seems to live in a perpetual state of drunk! I'm not crazy about Todd, but I do agree that a person has a right to pursue their own happiness. But if Kandi doesn't stop playing doctor trying to treat her mother's mental illness, Joyce is going to have her tweeking too! Joyce has done nothing but hooked a wagon onto Kandi's  skirt tail and is enjoying the ride. Doesn't she have friends that she can be with and have a good time instead of circling Kandi like a vulture? I'm not even going to attempt to ask about a man, because Joyce couldn't get a man on life support!

SHAME ON YOU "MAMA JOYCE" for ruining all your daughter's beautiful wedding pictures!  You should be embarrassed of yourself... who acts like this?  In every picture I have seen of the beautiful wedding with you in it, you have a sour puss on your face like a 5 yr old.... GROW UP and PLEASE BRAVO no more Mama Joyce!!!!

Pearls of wisdom? Now that's scary, I don't think so! The word that sums up Joyce is HYPOCRITE! I had to turn down the volume on my computer just to state the obvious here about Kandi's mom... she has serious issues. The woman needs to keep her negative opinions to herself. State your feelings constructively once, and then shut up for God's sake! No one wants to hear your jealous rants and sick comments about your own daughter and her fiance. Kandi is lucky to have Todd, he's a great guy. Joyce on the other hand is a hot mess and acts like a fool. She may have Kandi's support now but she shouldn't push her luck! 

And Kandi should stop being such an enabler and kissing up to her mom! She needs to have a talking to that Joyce can understand and put an end to her antics! Joyce is an awful mother and even worse mother in law!

BRAVO -- PLEASE, no more Momma Joyce! Having to listen to her is like nails on a chalkboard, and she doesn't add anything to the show. She's not even bringing drama, but rather presenting as a jealous little spoiled brat who is not getting her way. Her behavior is childish, and all she's doing is making a huge fool out of herself. So PLEASE... DO NOT give this horrible woman any more airtime! That's what she lives for, and you guys are feeding right into it. Take away the cameras and hopefully she's fade away.

How about "NO more Momma Joyce!" 


Todd's mom was right, she called it like she saw it, and I think her choice of words were actually quite polite and much kinder than I think Momma Joyce deserves.

Dear Joyce, your not my momma so I will not address you as such... I am sorry to say but did you loose some brain cells when you lost weight? We know your mouth won't stop! What happened, being on TV made you think you were Nene Leakes? No ma'am, your not a diva and your not rich! You are mean spirited woman.. Please get help... Bottom line, you are narcissistic! A narcissist to the very definition. You are a taker. You don't like Todd, ok but all those things you said about him is really an expression of how you are ...

At first Mama Joyce actions really made me mad. She is nothing but mean and nasty and disrespectful to Todd and his Mother.  We all know that kandi gave her the house she lives in and supports her with a monthly income. I dont understand why Kandi lets her get away with the horrible behavior. I don't think showing Mama Joyce on the RHOA is good for anyone.

I thing Mama Joyce is correct about Todd.  She knows the "Game".  The sponsors need to listen to people who buy their products before they drop a character.  Mama Joyce hang  in there and I know you will be there for Candy in the future.  Shame on you people for calling some one else mother " a terrible mother" .  Who are you to judge a person's mother.

@Patam  Marriages are not the same anymore. Everybody says I love you, let's get married, but don't want to put forth the effort it takes to stay married. That's why there are Pre-nups so that you can protect yourself  from the one who claimed to love you. I think that when one or the other causes something bad to happen in the marriage, then walk away with what you've worked so hard for, is not fair. I don't think Todd was under duress when signing the Pre-nup, he signed because he didn't want to lose his meal ticket. He doesn't even seem to be concerned about not having a job! Maybe he wants to be treated like a housewife, like Peter. I just feel like Kandi did the right thing. Todd should find a job, so that if anything does happen, he won't have a problem finding a place in 30 days!

@dcncc I also agree with Kandi about the Pre-nup, because when a rich man gets married, the first thing at the top of his list is a Pre-nup, and they make sure she gets very little or nothing at all. But when a woman does it, there's a problem. In Todd's past relationships the woman didn't set him up with a place until he found one, why should Kandi? Is it because she has money? Todd is a man, and should be out making his own money! I'll bet anything that Kandi will be the one paying most of the bills in this marriage, plus giving Todd money!, and if they have any children, Kandi will be the one mainly supporting them.! At this point, Todd looks as if he's just taking up space, and doing no more than having sex with Kandi, I hope he's good in bed, because then he could at least say that he brought something into that marriage. Everything Kandi had before that marriage is hers, and I don't blame her for for trying to keep it that way, she worked hard and doesn't owe Todd anything, husband or not!, and I don't like what Todd's mother said about people having something to say about her coming to stay at her son's house. Well first off, It's Kandi's house, and if something happens in that marriage, it will still be Kandi's house! So with Todd bringing $0 into the marriage it's almost like he's a guest his damm self! Todd's mother needs to ask Kandi, not Todd what she can and cannot do! I'm saying all of these things because if it were the other way around, and Todd was the bread winner, Kandi would have to go to him!  In this life a lot of marriages are that way, so I'm glad Kandi was smart with the way she did the Pre-nup.

@dcncc  I think that Todd shouldn't have married Kandi.  There has been too much disrespect from Kandi and Joyce.  The comments about his parents, and Kandi's refusal to put a stop to Joyce's behavior was and is a deal breaker!!  Todd is a catch, so when he wakes up to the severity of the situation and respects and honors "his" parents and self, he will walk away with his dignity.  Many "good and respectable" women will be waiting for him on that day!!

In no way did she redeem herself...Takes a player to know a player and she was playing Kandie like a fiddle...Mommy dearest is fearful Todd may take Kadie's money and will no longer have her sugar moma daughter to doll out the money to pay her bills.  She takes credit for the way Kadie turned out and becoming rich....Kadie is the person she is in spite of mammy dearest....No credit to her....

@babsetta I'm not a fan of mama Joyce by no means and I mean that, but she was right about Todd concerning money. Because of statements that Todd made and his behavior in the matter of the Pre-nup, I agree with her. I think Todd is using Kandi like government benefits.( free ride), He needs to look up the word love before he tries to pull off a con so he could really play the role. There are no if's and but's, love endures all. All he has to do is look it up in a dictionary and the bible to see if he's really in love! If Todd really loved Kandi there is nothing mama Joyce could have said or done to make him tell Kandi that she needs to check her mother or they could just be friends or giving Kandi ultimatums. Walking away talking about,( I guess there won't be a wedding) over the Pre-nup, and there were other things he said contrary to someone who claims they are in love. Kandi can't force mama Joyce to change, she can't put a gun to her head! I know mama Joyce has really done some things that were not nice at all, and the rest of us have a right to say what we want, but mama Joyce is Kandi's mother, and  no matter what her other motives are, I believe she really loves her daughter. It is not Kandi's place to correct or check her mother as if her mother is her child because the more they all try to convince mama Joyce the worse she get's! I think it's time to flip the script. I think mama Joyce should only be in scenes with Kandi and her daughter and relatives, and maybe showing mama Joyce doing something with her own life, maybe this will cut down on mama Joyce's antics and Kandi won't always feel like she's in the middle of breaking up fights or having to choose between  mother, husband, and friends.
