Kandi Burruss Marries Despite Mama Joyce’s WarningsBy: Pam Wright - April 6, 2014
Kandi Burruss has been warned.
Despite voiced trepidations by her mom — known to the world as Mama Joyce — Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss married former producer Todd Tucker on Friday.
When Tucker refused to sign a prenup, it only seemed to confirm her worries.
The 37-year-old reality star refused to listen to her mama and went forward with the wedding in spite of all the warnings.
Despite reservations, Mama Joyce did attend the wedding and even offered the newlyweds a beautiful toast in front of family and friends at a reception following the wedding.
The feud between Mama Joyce and her daughter over her son-in-law’s true intentions has played out on the Bravo show. Tucker tried to work things out with Mama Joyce, having numerous conversations on the show with his future mother-in-law.
At one point, he asks Mama Joyce if she’s getting excited about her daughter’s wedding.
Her response was a definitive NOT.
Todd asked Mama Joyce why it has to be so difficult to communicate. “If it’s ‘Todd, I’m probably never going to like you,’ I can live with that. I didn’t stop liking you, I stopped respecting you,” she responded.
“They’re together, but I’m out of their relationship,” Mama Joyce said in January. “It’s much healthier. I have rekindled a very healthy relationship with my daughter, and my granddaughter [Riley], and we are in a very good place…I pray and hope that I’m wrong about Todd.”
The feud has even played out on shows like The View.
Burruss is a Grammy-winning singer and songwriter and a former member of R&B group Xscape.
The couple became engaged last January after meeting on the show in 2011.
Burruss was engaged once before to the late A.J. Jewell, who was killed in a bar fight in 2009. She has an 11-year-old daughter, Riley, with ex-boyfriend Russell Spencer of Block Entertainment. This is the first marriage for both of them.
What do you think? Will the marriage last?
