Mama Joyce took an almost fiendish pleasure in bashing and denigrating daughter Kandi Burruss’ husband, Todd Tucker, with reckless and relentless abandon.
And although Burruss’ mom swore to her daughter that she would refrain from blistering Tucker, she was back to her old habits, hating and throwing shade in his direction even after the two got married.
Burruss claimed on “Watch What Happens Live” that the relationship between Mama Joyce and Tucker has gotten better.
“Well, she didn’t say anything about the car, but she has come around,” Burruss shared. “No, seriously. Things have gotten a lot better lately. They are communicating a lot better, she is a lot more supportive.”
Burruss said the unexpected tragic death Tucker’s mom, Miss Sharon, helped to tame Mama Joyce’s fiery temper and temper her hatred of Tucker.
“Well, I don’t think it was just that. Of course, when something like that happens that makes everybody come together and realize, like, sometimes we can be petty about some things that we shouldn’t really trip about.”
“At the same time, I think he has also gained her respect over time because in the beginning she thought he wanted to live off of me and Todd has gone on to executive produce his own shows and everything since then.”
