More Mama Drama: Kandi Explains Why She Isn’t Speaking To Mama Joyce

At this point, the most interesting thing about Kandi Burruss is the fact that her mother doesn’t know how to act –or she knows exactly how to act in order to secure a reality show spin-off. Either way, when we see Kandi all anyone wants to talk about is the drama Mama Joyce brings to her new marriage. And in her “Watch What Happens Live” interview with Andy Cohen, that’s what the callers wanted to know. One woman asked Kandi if she’d considered banning Mama Joyce from her home if she can’t find a way to respect her husband.

Here’s what Kandi had to say.

Basically, my mother and I we always have conversations. People think I don’t say anything to her and that’s not true. I say things all the time. She doesn’t always receive it. Whether or not she receives it, we do what we want to do. 

Now the whole argument between his mom and my mom last week was because I did not allow her to come to the house one time when I felt she was going to come over and make Todd uncomfortable. And so she’s been holding a grudge about it ever since, like ‘Oh, I can’t come to your house.’ It’s not that she can’t come to my house I just didn’t want her to come if she was going to have an attitude, be saying negative things or not speaking.

Andy: Was there a point where you felt like you were going to have to shut her out completely?

Honestly, we go through those moments all the time and we stop talking for days at a time. Like right now we haven’t been talking for a couple days…it’s something about my dad. It’s silly to me. It gets to be petty  sometimes. And that’s why I’m like ‘Ok, we just need a break.’ 

Apparently she must be waiting on me to call her because she’s never wrong. That’s what I’m saying. Regardless of what is said, she never sees her part in the situation. She always makes it seem like I’m just wrong. So we’ll go days until I call. 


Other people pointed the finger in Kandi’s direction for the terms of her prenup. One of the conditions was that if they break up, he would have to leave their home within 30 days. She wanted to know that if they share the house together, why wouldn’t they split it if their marriage doesn’t work.

I did buy the house. He pays the bills but as far as the house itself…

Andy: You own it.

Well yeah. He doesn’t want the house. I don’t want people to think ‘Oh he’s trying to get the house.’ It’s just the fact that when you get divorced sometimes it can be a long, dragged out process. I remember talking to Bethenny recently and she was saying how she hated the fact–she had a prenup– but she they didn’t have any term where he had to get out. So he was there for a long time.

Andy: He may still be there as a matter of fact.

So that’s why attorneys put those stipulations in there.

Kandi also said that Todd’s mother is still mad, naturally, about the things Mama Joyce said about her. And when it comes to expanding their family she said that she and Todd want to have children but they’re not trying but not not trying. You know? They’re just going to go with the flow and see what happens.
