Kandi Burruss believes that Wendy Williams and her mouth had a hand in shaping her mother’s opinion about Todd Tucker.
It’s no secret that Mama Joyce can’t stand Todd, and she’s even accused him of cheating on Kandi with one of her friends. The disapproval may not have resulted in a physical fight, but it has pumped the breaks on Kandi’s plans for a wedding.
But where did the initial mistrust come from? Kandi told ABC News Radio that Mama Joyce may have formed an unfavorable view of Todd after watching one too many episodes of “The Wendy Williams Show.”
“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,’” Kandi recalled. “Next thing I know, my momma comes back and is like, ‘Wendy said that he was an opportunist.’”
Last week, Kandi told Madame Noir that she and Todd may just wind up getting hitched in a small ceremony because Joyce is very much against her daughter marrying the TV producer. At first, Kandi wanted a big wedding. Since it’s not likely that her mom will be there it’s forced her to rethink how big her big day will really be.
“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,” said Kandi. “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.”
NO matter what Mama Joyce thinks, though, Kandi is still very much smitten with her hubby-to-be! “I just love everything about him,” Kandi gushed. “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.”
