Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss’ mom Joyce has made it perfectly clear that she does not want her daughter to marry Todd Tucker.

Mama Joyce believes Todd is a oportunist and is out for Kandi’s money. She also believes Todd is sleeping with Kandi’s best friend Carmen. But Mama Joyce is tired of meddling in her daughter’s love life.

Joyce reveals to that she’s done with trying to convince her daughter not to get married. Radar Online reports:

“I’m out of it. Whatever Kandi does, it is completely her decision now. I wish her well. I just hope that this is the right choice for her.

They have worn me down to the point where it has made me sick. I just don’t feel like Todd is the right choice. I think he’s manipulative…I’ve tried to shield my child, but i’m tired. I’m over it. I pray to God I’m wrong about him.

If Kandi is happy, I’m happy. At the end of the day, she’s the one who will have to deal with him not me.”

Kandi fought back tears as she defended her mother during Sunday’s episode of Watch What Happens Live. Kandi said she still loves Mama Joyce and had no problem financially supporting the woman who bashes her fiance Todd Tucker on RHOA. 

Kandi first told host Andy Cohen that her mother was angry because he and co-star Cynthia Bailey and Sandra Bernhard had joked about the singer still being under the thumb of her mother while apparently paying her bills. Kandi admitted the two weren’t speaking because of it.

“My mother was upset with you guys last week…she’s not speaking to me right now because of you guys last week,” Kandi told Andy. “She’s not speaking to me because of that. She didn’t like the fact that you guys were saying that she needed me.”

Kandi added that Mama Joyce’s problem with  Todd has less to do with him being an alleged opportunist and more to do with her mom’s concern for her own financial security.

“I feel like as her daughter, it’s my job to make sure that she’s good. She made sure I was good growing up,” Kandi said while holding back tears. “I’m going to make sure that she’s good. I don’t care if she doesn’t like my relationship.”

Kandi added, “That’s my mom. I don’t care what y’all have to say. That’s my mom. I’mma make sure that my mama’s good. She don’t have to talk to me. She don’t have to say anything to me. Y’all can tweet. Y’all can do whatever…You can tweet to y’all get blue in the face. She can have whatever she want.”
