For the past few weeks, we’ve witnessed the mayhem that erupts when Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss’ mother, Joyce, attempts to stick her nose in her daughter’s relationship. Things got pretty intense during last night’s episode and many fans proceeded to slam the former Xscape singer for not standing up to her mother. In a new Bravo TV blog Kandi responded to those critics, arguing that she does in fact, stand her ground when it comes to her mother. Her blog entry reads:
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.”
