‘She Went So Hard, She Doesn’t Want To Be Wrong:’ Kandi Burruss Shares Why She Thinks Mama Joyce Is Still Anti Todd
When Mama Joyce first began her campaign against Todd Tucker, most of us figured that she was trying to prevent her daughter from making what she perceived to be a terrible mistake. But now that Kandi is officially Mrs. Todd Tucker, we’re kind of wondering why Joyce is still campaigning against him although he’s technically family now. Well, Kandi believes that her mother went so hard against Todd in the beginning that she’s still putting up a fight to save face.
“She’s still not giving him any credit,” the newly married star confessed during an appearance on “Bethenny”. “I’m still trying to figure it out myself. I think at this point, she went so hard, she doesn’t want to be wrong. So maybe she’s just sticking with it.”
Speaking of husbands and marriage, Kandi also spilled on her unusual bachelorette party, which she says Phaedra took to a whole new level.
“She’s always been one to turn up the party. She didn’t do the norm. My friends were like, ‘Are we going to have another male stripper Kandi?’ But this time she went totally left and made if fun. She had a little person come and do some things, an old lady come. It was out of the box, people that you wouldn’t expect to see doing something like that.”
As for rumors that Porsha Williams may be fired from the show for her altercation with Kenya Moore, Kandi says she doesn’t think the fight is a good reason to fire Porsha.
“There was a lot going on, I can’t tell you everything. She was definitely provoked—I would think. If you’re going to let someone go, it shouldn’t be because of that.”
“No one has told me they’re getting rid of Porsha, so I haven’t given my opinion either way. There have been other times where violence was had—whether it’s been NeNe choking Kim or when Sheree pulled Kim’s wig. It’s been other things that have happened that people didn’t get fired for so I don’t think it was fair to do that to her. I feel like everybody on our cast was great this year, as far as the storyline. I want to see everyone go to the next season, even Kenya. I personally, but I don’t know how everyone else feels.”
