One thing’s for sure, reality TV weddings aren’t the same as televised royal weddings, but these weddings are just as entertaining (if not more). Reality weddings are usually filled with much drama before walking down the aisle and many of them have been ratings gold, which means it makes sense for Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker to be the next reality stars to showcase their wedding on the small screen. And we’re sure Mama Joyce will keep fans entertained about her thoughts on the weddings — going back and forth from she’s not going to say anything and hopes she’s wrong to she knows her daughter is making a big mistake and she’ll regret it. Oh brother! But Burruss and Tucker’s big day (and the drama leading up to it) hasn’t been experienced by just them.
Here are 15 other major reality TV weddings filled with tears, love, romance, hilarity and much drama.
Slowly but surely details of Kandi and Todd’s walk down the aisle are coming together, thanks to an exclusive In Touch Weekly just published. The tabloid is the first mag to release pics of Kandi and Todd’s wedding and we’re starting to see the Coming to America theme shine through.
According to In Touch, that Reco Chapple gown you’re looking at cost a cool $20,000 and featured a 12-foot train. No wonder Kandi said “The whole thing was like a fairy tale!” The Real Housewives of Atlanta stars’ nuptials took place at Atlanta’s Le Fais Do-Do venue in front of a reported 300 guests with walls covered in ostrich-feather fans, which is an amazing feet for just a few weeks of planning. The former Xscape star admitted:
“I didn’t know if I was going to be able to pull this all together. I couldn’t wait around hoping things would get better. I just had to do it and hope for the best.”
Thankfully, that’s exactly what she got — on all fronts. It’s no secret Kandi’s mother, mama Joyce isn’t exactly thrilled with her daughter’s choice of a life partner, but she told In Touch:
“Time will tell if Todd gets my blessing, but if Kandi’s happy, then I need to be happy for her.”
It’s about time she got that through her head. Let’s just hope footage from Kandi’s upcoming wedding spin-off doesn’t show her acting a fool. What do you think of Kandi’s dress?
The wedding is over. Kandi Burruss is officially Mrs. Todd Tucker. However, it appears that her mother, Joyce, is still at odds with her son-in-law. During a recent interview with Radar Online, the reality TV mom explained that the wedding ceremony was beautiful and drama free, but adds that she didn’t utter a word to Todd the entire time.
“I didn’t really pay any attention to him, she revealed. “We didn’t talk.”
Despite her feelings regarding her daughter’s union, Joyce says she was nice during the ceremony.
“I was very nice. It was her decision to make to marry him and she says she’s happy and she didn’t see anything wrong with him so she did it.”
Though there were reports that she exchanged words with Todd’s mother, Sharon, just days before the wedding, Joyce says there was no drama on Kandi’s special day.
“Everyone was very nice and there weren’t any fights,” Joyce explained before referencing a comment made by RHOA co-star Cynthia Bailey that Kandi’s family is always fighting. “Besides what Cynthia says, our family doesn’t fight all the time. It was a very classy wedding and everybody had a nice time.”
While she admits that the ceremony went smoothly, she doesn’t seem to think that Kandi’s marriage will share a similar fate.
“Time will tell, but I only pray that I’m wrong and that they do last,” she said. “But I don’t see how they can.”
Having your mom continuously express doubts about your marriage to media outlets has got to be awful.
Though Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker finally made it down the aisle this past weekend, it appears that their in-law issues are only beginning. According to Straight From The A, guests who attended the star-studded wedding ceremony say that Todd’s mom, Miss Sharon, and Mama Joyce exchanged bitter words just a few days prior to the ceremony.
The source claims Miss Sharon called Joyce a “messy b***h.” While we don’t know much about Miss Sharon and can’t say whether or not she would go there with her son’s then soon-to-be-mother-in-law, it does appear that she has kept it classy up until this point. What we do know, however, is that she is definitely not pleased with the way Mama Joyce has been dogging out her son on national television week after week.
As you may recall, during Todd’s Jan. appearance on “Watch What Happens Live” with the other husbands, Miss Sharon called in to the show to defend her son against Joyce’s vicious allegations.
“Todd was raised with respect, morals and to be self-sufficient,” said Miss Sharon. “He didn’t need Kandi; don’t need Kandi now–outside of the love they have for each other.”
“I really asked my mom to refrain from going in,” Todd chimed in. “She loves me as much as Kandi’s mom loves her. She handled herself, she did her thing.”
And apparently Miss Sharon vs. Mama Joyce wasn’t the only feud that went down in the days leading up to Kandi’s big day. As we told you earlier today, Joyce also recently claimed that Todd didn’t show up to one of the wedding rehearsals due to a disagreement he had with Kandi over their prenuptial agreement.
“I got a little pissed at the bridegroom the night before this wedding,” Joyce explained. “He kind of held up on signing the prenup and didn’t come to the rehearsal dinner because he didn’t want to sign it. His mom said she didn’t see no reason for him to have to sign because they were in love. He was the one who didn’t have a damn thing, but that’s another story. But from what I understand, he did sign.”
Hopefully all of the insanity will die down now that Kandi is officially Mrs. Tucker.
“I Stopped Respecting You”: Todd Confronts Mama Joyce, Cynthia & Peter Deal With Foreclosure: RHOA Ep. 21
In this week’s episode we see Mama Joyce and Todd make some kind of peace, watch Cynthia and Peter deal with possible foreclosure issues with their businesses, see NeNe start her clothing line and be a diva, and sadly watch as Kenya breaks down over the loss of a loved one. There was a lot to see in this episode, so there’s a lot to chat about. Let’s get to it.
Kandi Sets Porsha Straight About Being Tardy For The Party…Aka, Practice
First things first, we head to the recording studio where Porsha is trying to get her Aretha Franklin on. Her time dealing with her divorce drama through song is interrupted by Kandi, who has come to set her straight about missing too many “A Mother’s Love” practices. Kandi reads off emails from her staff that show Porsha has been unprofessional and missed quite a few practices, but Porsha blames poor communication on the part of Kandi’s team. However, when a phone call is placed to Porsha’s sister, it shows that she has been slacking on sharing the practice schedule with Porsha. This woman is already off to a bad start with this whole independent, working woman part of her new single life.
Some things just don’t need to be caught on camera and blasted over the internets and this is one of them. This morning photos from Todd’s Bachelor party surfaced online, and try as we might to avoid the debauchery, the pic above just couldn’t be ignored.
There, in the middle of Bar One, stood the lounge owner himself, Peter Thomas, getting twerked on by one of Atlanta’s finest, an adult dancer. And look who stood by and watched, Kirk Frost. Actually Kirk and Peter both had their eyes fixed over yonder which makes me really curious what could’ve been more interesting than a girl p-popping on a handstand right in front of him, but perhaps the rest of the photos from the night will shed a little light on the totality of the festivities.

pIt’s pretty safe to say the boys had a good time. We just wonder what Kandi, Phaedra, Cynthia, and Rahseeda will think when they see these pics of Todd’s bachelor party…
Despite her loud protests against her daughter’s decision to marry fiancé, Todd Tucker, Mama Joyce says she will definitely be at Kandi’s spring wedding, which is reportedly set to take place next month.
“I am not excited but I am going,” Kandi’s mom honestly told RadarOnline during an interview.
Joyce, who has been extremely determined to get Kandi to see the “real Todd” this season, went on to say that she realizes that she doesn’t exactly have a say in who her daughter decides to spend the rest of her life with.
“It’s not my wedding. If she is happy then I am happy for her. If that’s who she wants to marry then I’m happy. As long as she is happy I am happy.”
As for whether or not she truly believes Kandi is happy with Todd, Joyce says she’ll simply have to take her word for it.
“Kandi says she is happy so I just have to go by what she says.”
Oh, and in case you’re wondering if she plans to attend the ceremony just so that she could object, the reality TV mom says absolutely not. Not because she doesn’t object, but because she has already expressed how she feels about Kandi’s decision to marry Todd.
“I’m not going to stand up when they ask if anyone has any objections. I don’t have anything to say. Everyone knows how I feel.”
Despite her strong convictions about Todd, Joyce adds that she really hopes that she is wrong about him.
“I hope that I can say ‘I’m glad Kandi didn’t listen to me and this is the man she has been waiting for all her life.’”
Joyce also discussed Kandi’s desire to have more children, expressing that her dislike for Todd will have no impact on how she feels about her future grandchildren.
“Their father doesn’t make no difference to me. If she adopted, had another child with Todd, I will love it.”
Now that the Mama Joyce situation is under control, we can only hope that everything else runs smoothly on Kandi’s big day!
Since announcing her engagement last year, “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Kandi Burruss has been on the fence about whether or not she’ll be allowing reality TV cameras into her upcoming wedding to fiancé, Todd Tucker.
“For me it’s not that great of an idea just because it adds pressure to a day that’s already stressful,” Kandi shared with The Jasmine Brand. “Plus, I have a lot of craziness going on in my family around the whole subject of me getting married, so I’m dealing with all of that.”
It appears that she may have experienced a change of heart because according to Straight From The A, Kandi and Todd have finally agreed to participate in a wedding spin-off. Details surround the ceremony are scarce at the moment, but it has been reported that the love birds could be saying “I do” as early as next month. Bravo has yet to confirm whether or not the wedding special is definitely a go or not, but it certainly doesn’t seem far-fetched. As always, we will keep you posted as more details emerge.

Moving And Shaking: Kandi Burruss Talks To JET About Her Business, Todd & Why Mama Joyce Doesn’t Like Him
Look who’s on the cover of JET this month shining. RHOA star, singer, songwriter and entrepreneur Kandi Burruss spoke with the magazine about how she keeps a coin or two in her pocket. the tension between Mama Joyce and her fiancé Todd Tucker.
Kandi said, “When I speak about anything on camera I want to accomplish it before we finish taping,” Burruss tells JET regarding her drive and ambition. “I am a ‘do what I say’ person. I want people to know I’m not a [phony]. I hate when people on reality shows mention how they want to do this and that, but you never hear of it again.”
That’s certainly not the case for Kandi, every other day we hear about one of her business ventures. She has an adult toy line, Bedroom Kandi, The Kandi Factory, her Atlanta-based studio and her musical, A Mother’s Love, is set for a DVD release in April.
Interestingly enough, she admits that Todd is the one who’s helped her sharpen her business skills.
“I love that Todd is affectionate and relationship-oriented. But he’s also a leader and a planner, and because of his production background he makes me a better businesswoman.”
So about Mama Joyce…though she admits that she will be the first to apologize if they get married and it lasts, Kandi says there’s a reason why her mother is so concerned about Todd’s intentions.
“When my mother was younger it was all about getting a man to be a provider. She leans toward a man who is financially more well-off than the dude who is just a good guy. I’ve dated guys who are more successful than me, and my mom is like, no matter what he does wrong, you have to work it out.”
Hmm… we’ve talked about Mama Joyce and her foolishness many, many times before. But what do you think about the mother believing that a man should be more financially secure, above all else?
You can check out the full interview in this month’s JET on newsstands now.
The emotional tug of war known as the Kandi Burruss, Todd Tucker and Mama Joyce saga ensues. The trio appeared on “The View” today and though they spoke calmly to one another, no one really seems to be budging on how they’re feeling about the situation, namely Mama Joyce.
“Well, really Todd seems like a very nice person,” Joyce explained. “When I met him he seemed like a very nice person. But I have a problem with after his first job, which was doing the Kim and Kroy wedding, he took like two months off. Now, I come from a family of men that work. I had a problem with that, you know? And also, he said that he was using part of his savings and when you’re already to me, stepping up, I feel like you don’t need to use part of your savings to take two months off.”
Though he remained calm, Todd, who clearly appears to be at his wits’ end with all of the drama, explained that Joyce’s attempts to break up their engagement are taking a toll on his family.
“I think everyone has a breaking point,” he expressed.”The lies, that stuff is really tough. I have a mom and it affects my mother. It affects my daughter. It affects Kandi’s daughter. The other day Kandi’s daughter told Kandi ‘I don’t like that he said he would leave you.’”
Interestingly, “View” host Whoopi Goldberg chimed in, suggesting that Joyce pull back a bit and allow Kandi to make some of her own mistakes.
“Now okay, you and I are minutes apart in terms of age. We don’t have time for this mess. Let her make the mistake, if she’s gonna make the mistake. You gotta let her do it. You can’t do this for her. We listened kind of to our parents, but we had to make our own mistakes. She gotta do it.”
Joyce, however, refused to waver and argued that her granddaughter, Riley, is the reason she refuses to just let go.
“It’s not all about that. If it was just Kandi, I would agree with you. But Kandi has a daughter. And that’s who I’m worried about.”
She also pointed out that she found it quite odd that Todd expressed so much concern for Kandi’s friend Carmon and her son during his recent appearance on “Watch What Happens Live.” For the most part, Todd and Joyce were able to keep their composure, but poor Kandi couldn’t hold it together at certain points during the interview and shed a few tears over her mother’s inability to allow her to live her life.
“It is very frustrating. I love my mother to death. I do feel like Ma, you had kids too. Your mother didn’t interfere with your relationships. I just feel like you treat me like I am just stupid and I have no sense of responsibility and I don’t think that’s fair.”
Unfortunately, it doesn’t appear that Joyce will ever be okay with this relationship.
