As Bravo fans know, Mama Joyce Jones hasn’t always been fond of Kandi Burruss’ husband, Todd Tucker, and while they have managed to keep things civil over the years, this has never stopped The Real Housewives of Atlanta matriarch from shading her son-in-law.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta on Peacock and the Bravo App.

On Season 15 Episode 3 of RHOA, viewers got to see Mama Joyce snub Todd when she was prompted to name “three nice things about [him]” during a Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen game of “Truth or Drink!” at last year’s BravoCon.

And in Mama Joyce fashion, her responses weren’t all that positive, saying that Todd is “still short,” that he “shaved his beard some,” and that he’s “very nice to his kids.”

Fast-forward to RHOA’s Season 15 finale (which aired on August 27) and things seemed to be steadily on track for the in-laws, as Mama Joyce showed support at Kandi and Todd’s event to promote their new film, The Pass. Here, Kandi revealed where the relationship between her mother and her husband currently stands.

Shortly after the movie’s spicy trailer premiered, Kandi checked in with her mom to get her reaction to it. “Mom! So you think everybody gonna come out and see it or wanna stream it?” Kandi asked.

“I hope so,” Mama Joyce replied. “Just long as you’re happy and everything, that’s what’s important.”

While basking in the audience’s positive reactions to the movie, Kandi couldn’t help but ponder Mama Joyce’s fractured bond with Todd, revealing that their “relationship is up and down.”

During Kandi’s confessional, she explained what her family is doing to get to a better place. “We have not done family therapy, but my mother has been going to her counseling sessions,” she said. 

Kandi concluded her sentiments by expressing how much her mom’s appearance at the premiere of her and Todd’s movie trailer meant to her, saying, “My mother coming tonight to be supportive is a step in the right direction.”
