It appears that Mama Joyce has somewhat let down her guard down with her son-in-law, Todd Tucker. In a recent interview, the reality TV mom spoke about Todd’s current projects and how hard he’s been working lately.
“Todd is doing well now,” she told Radar Online. “He has a show and I hope they stay together and be happy. I have accepted that they are together and she loves him.”
Although she made it clear in the past that she did not want her daughter to marry the reality television producer, Joyce says that she has come to accept her daughter’s decision.
“I made up my mind that if that’s who she chose then I am happy for her. I am not going to stress about it and I’m just going to accept it.”
As for why she was so against their marriage, Joyce claimed that she was simply trying to protect her daughter.
“I want my child to be happy and I didn’t want her to be taken advantage of. I wanted Kandi to marry somebody that had as much as she did.”
Of course, some felt that she only wanted to protect Kandi’s finances for her own personal gain, but Joyce says that it wasn’t about her and that she has never taken advantage of her daughter.
“I didn’t take from Kandi, I didn’t use her ever,” she explained. “Kandi respects me and Kandi knows I raised her by myself and I sacrificed for her and I never spent her money. I was the one that helped her accumulate what she has.”
Though she seems to be making peace with her daughter’s marriage, it doesn’t appear that she’s looking to tame that mouth of hers.
“I think I am just straight up,” she continued. “People that know me love me to death. But I’m real. I say what other people are thinking because I don’t think there is anything to hide.”
Mama Joyce will always be Mama Joyce, but at least it appears that she’s at least thinking about butting out of Todd and Kandi’s business.
