Kandi Burruss blames Wendy Williams for Mama Joyce hating Todd Tucker

Kandi Burruss & Wendy Williams - Cover If last night’s episode of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” was proof of anything, it’s that Mama Joyce really doesn’t like Kandi Burruss’ fiancé, Todd Tucker. In the past, Burruss has claimed that her mother is just too overprotective, but now the “RHOA” star is claiming that talk show host Wendy Williams is the cause for Joyce’s bad attitude towards Tucker.

In a recent interview with ABC News Radio, Burruss claimed that all was well between Joyce and Tucker before Joyce began listening to Wendy Williams talk about her fiancé. “I can tell you when it started. Last year when Wendy Williams was commenting on our show every week and she was like, ‘[Todd’s] an opportunist. I think he’s an opportunist,’” Burruss recalled. “Next thing I know, my momma comes back and is like, ‘Wendy said that he was an opportunist.’”

Because of all of the friction between Joyce and Tucker, Burruss has considered just having a small, quickie wedding, and previous reports have claimed that she and Tucker have already eloped in Mexico. However, Burruss claims that Tucker still wants a big wedding while she’s still deciding what to do. “I haven’t decided yet if I want something that’s small and just us or if we wanted to do something bigger and invite people.  What was stopping me from even planning is the fact that my mom is not being supportive,” the 37-year-old mother of one says.  “It’s like, okay do I really want to have a wedding and my mom may not show up or if she does show up she’s going to be mean and negative?  You know, you don’t want the bad energy either.” Despite her mother’s disapproval, Burruss is unwavering in her love for Tucker and is confident he really is the one for her. “I just love everything about him,” she gushes.  “…He’s very smart.  He’s very intelligent.  He’s a leader.  He’s not the type that’s going to try and tell me what to do, but he’s great at helping guide me in a way.  And I think that I need a man that’s just as strong so he can deal with me because…I can be a little strong.”

Well, we’re glad that Burruss is happy with Tucker, but she’s not the only one dealing with a disapproving parent. Check out some other celebs in her shoes below. – nicholas robinson

    So now it’s Wendy’s fault? Maybe the lady just has a vibe. Maybe she just doesn’t care for him and all Wendy did was say what Mama was thinking?
