In last night’s episode, Kandi took a lot of heat on social media for not standing up to her mom (Mama Joyce), when her mom was going off on her fiance, Todd Tucker. Well, Kandi, has taken to her blog, to let viewers know that she does stand up to her mom, she just does it in a way that isn’t disrespectful. Check out what Kandi had to say
Well tonight’s episode was a little hard to watch. So many of you tweet about how you think I should deal with my mom. I love my mom, and I will always give her the utmost respect. I know she can be a little tough, but I believe she really does want the best for me even if I don’t like the way she goes about it. I’ve told her a million times that I’m not getting married without a pre-nup. Todd and I already agreed that we were doing one, but I don’t know why she feels like she has to be the one he negotiates it with. Todd did his best to not be disrespectful to my mom no matter what she said to him, which I’m thankful for, but he is more than a little tired of the drama though…
Everyone says stand up to your mama and blah, blah, blah, but believe it or not I do speak my mind to my mother. I just don’t say it in some crazy disrespectful way, because she is my mother. So to everyone who is screaming at me through the TV screen to “do something about my mom,” I’m not sure exactly what you expect me to do. I can only say how I feel, and if she doesn’t listen to me, then what? I don’t agree with my friend Carmon on how she said she would handle it if it were her mom. I don’t believe in cutting off your relationship with your mom. So for now I’m just hoping that over time things will work out for the best.
I understand what Kandi is saying about not being disrespectful, but her not setting Mama Joyce straight IS disrespectful towards Todd. She needs to woman up and give her mom an ultimatum. She’s not a little girl anymore. If I were Kandi, I would be more worried about Mama Joyce’s obsession with my money, not Todd. She takes advantage of Kandi being so nice with her. Kandi better figure out a way to handle her mom, or she is going to end up alone with only her mom. (which in a weird way, probably what Mama Joyce would love LOL). The only opinion Kandi should be worried about, is the opinion of her daughter Riley. What do you guys think? How do you think Kandi should handle Mama Joyce?
