RHOA’s Mama Joyce On Her Portrayal on RHOA: “I Don’t Know If I’ll Be Back On The Show”

It took her a little minute but Mama Joyce is finally taking advantage of her new found “fame” in the entertainment world. We recently spoke to her about her feelings on Todd, his relationship with Kandi and if she feels left out, but now Joyce has a new target: Bravo.

That’s right, Joyce is pretty upset with Bravo, saying they edited a lot of her scenes to make her look like a bad person. She recently spoke to RadarOnline and said:

“I don’t know why they did that. I allowed it to be like that, I guess. I guess since they don’t pay me, they can do whatever they want.”

She added that things may have been different if she were under contract:

“I would never have agreed to it.  I am very upset about what they did and I don’t know if I’ll be back on the show.”

Joyce recalled specific incidents, particularly the one that seemed to start setting things ablaze over the past few weeks on the show: the photos on the wall.

“When they showed the scene of me walking into the house and seeing all the pictures of Todd on the wall I was not talking about his pictures! I know Kandi had a decorator, her friend Carmon – and she put up all those pictures of Todd when he was a little boy.  I said, ‘Now that’s a damn shame,’ and what I really said was that shouldn’t be all him up there (on the wall). That shouldn’t be his wall. I said there were no picture of Riley or me. I didn’t just say there should be a picture of me.”

Interesting but not at all surprising. Joyce has been involved in the show for a couple of seasons now and should understand the business of reality television enough to know that if you don’t want your words to be twisted, you shouldn’t say anything that can be switched up.

As for her possibly leaving the show on her own terms…we’ll see about that.

    I hate when these women act horrible and blame it on the editing. Cut it out.

  • MyBiz

    I don’t watch the show, but it seems as though the whole season was about her. I wonder if the next season will last, cause they will get rid of people quick. Nene is the only “original” cast member and by the comments from the bloggers she acts like it too.

    • Resa

      NeNe should be the first to go. She is Not one of the top actresses in Hollywood ru kidding me?!!!!?
      She only played a few Recurring roles of which one was cancelled. Her storyline is BORING and pretentious Kenya can only get crazier, she’s not interesting either. Cynthia, yawn…zzz, Porsha who!!!? Ditzy and boring, and Phaedra, love her, dispise Apollo who is not at all cute, just pale and sick loojing. The drama w Kandi is the only thing carrying the show.

      • MyBiz

        Who said anything about any of them being actresses let alone top paid? I said joyce seemed to be the story line this season and nene is the only original cast member.

        • lockstress

          When they took the trip with Chuck the Schmuck back to Athens Boys & Girls club…that’s how he introduced her. I laughed my azz off.

    im so glad mama joyce isnt coming back next season,this show aint about you.and they really making you look bad ! or should i say you making yourself look bad.you said youve done too much for kandi,,granted you raised her,your job is done !but your child has been a star since her teens and she has been taking care of you ! let her have her life ,you raised her well she would never forget about her mother and i dont think a man in her life would change that,,,relax already !! you are secure.

  • jennypoohbear

    Mama Joyce! They say older is wiser & more knowledgeable!!!!! Well apparently you were “NOT” going on the show without signing a contract. Did Kandi mentioned anything to you, she’s in show biz?

  • Kimmie

    I’m sorry but there is NOT that much editing in the world.

  • bigdede

    She can’t blame Bravo for nothing! It wasn’t Bravo that had her daughter, Kandi, crying to Cynthia about Mama Joyce attitude. It wasn’t Bravo you had her taking off her shoe trying to throw it at Kandi’s friend. There is no way Bravo could edit anything to make her look bad. What about Riley admitting the horrible stuff Mama Joyce says to her about Todd. Kandi was right when she told her Mama she always tries to make herself the victim.

  • lockstress

    Oh wait….I forgot my language…BON SOIRE!

  • lockstress

    That’s right. It was “BRAVO” that had you showing your geriatric arse on television trying to fight your daughter’s friend..
    Oh…it was also “Bravo” that dragged you to Phaedra’s office and scared her little son cuz he saw right thru your bullshyt.
    So Mama Joyce, “BRAVO”! Sianara, Arrivederci, Sianara, Adios, BuhBYE!

  • GymJunkie43

    That’s her fault. That would be like me, walking into a Hollywood studio, acting on a show for a few weeks and then complaining that I’m not on payroll. Contracts happen BEFORE the acting is done, not after. Now I see why Kandi wrote, produced and fine tuned a song that somebody else ran off and profited off of. Apple don’t fall far from the tree.

  • Sunny

    People on reality shows kill me blaming their negative portrayal all on editing. Sounds like she watched herself act a fool or read what everyone said about her acting a fool and is rightfully embarrassed.

  • Mrs.A

    Even she realizes how stupid she sounds.The editing didn’t downgrade her daughters ring or talk about the size of her fiance’s head, that was all her.She has been exposed as the gold digging, messy, & selfish women that she obviously is. Good Evidence!

  • kelafly

    We are more than happy to see her and her two cents leave. Hell, take Nene hypocritical behind with you.

  • Dee

    Peace out Mama Joyce!!!!! And if she was on that show for free she was the fool. Wasn’t that why she got all “Turned Up” this season, for more $$? I know she wasn’t looking for a spin off. Oh maybe she was helping to keep Kandy on the show. Even so, Mama J would not be missed and take Mynique with you.

  • FwithmeyouknoIgotit

    I mean.. Good Riddance.
    They used to say wisdom comes with age, apparently not anymore. Joyce is the only one to blame for her own actions. Its no way bravo couldve twisted things that much.
