Real Housewives of Atlanta stars Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker recently appeared on Steve Harvey’s show where they dished about RHOA storylines, Mama Joyce and how they keep it real on reality TV.
Kandi put it all on the line saying many other Atlanta Housewives worry about what their story line will be before the new season starts while Kandi and Todd don’t. “We just put our life out there, we’re not secretive, we don’t try to hide things or portray ourselves a certain way. Because I don’t think people like that anyway. I think people relate to you more when you just give them your normal life. We all go through the same things.” Todd says, “we have real issues.”
Steve wants to talk about the issue of Mama Joyce. “That seems to be the only think you all really fight about. Why?” Kandi says, “uhhhhhh My mother is very opinionated. Sometimes she can be a little abrasive with the way she lets people know how she feels.” Todd says, “the delivery was a bit much. I understand that she wants to protect her daughter.”
Kandi says the hardest part of being on reality TV is dealing with fans on Twitter especially when they bash her mom.“It’s hard. Obviously you have to get tough skin being on the show and especially on social media because people will just say anything. People would say things like they wished my mom died. It’s crazy the stuff that people say. Of course, it makes me emotional but at the same time, it’s like ‘I’m not going to give you my energy, I’m just gonna block you.’”
Steve also asked Kandi if she had to take any of the other housewives’ husbands who would it be? Kandi laughed and replied that she would take Gregg Leakes because he does whatever NeNe asks and is supportive and catering.
I am surprised that Kandi and Todd have made it this long considering Mama Joyce’s interference in their relationship. I like Kandi and Todd together, and I hope they last. Hopefully, Mama Joyce will learn to love and accept Todd as her own.
Do you think Mama Joyce will ever accept Todd? Which Househusband of Atlanta would you choose if you had to?
