ST LOUIS (LALATE) – Todd Tucker’s dad battled Kandi Burruss’ Mama Joyce last Sunday on Bravo. And now Kandi Burruss is telling news that Todd Tucker’s mother is still upset with Kandi over that “your dad was a pimp” scene. Two Sundays ago, Mama Joyce left viewers asking if Todd Tucker was raised by a pimp and a woman of the streets. Mama Joyce had said to Kandi “You didn’t know the game, they know the game. What I’m saying is Todd was raised by a pimp and a pros–te.” And now Kandi is speaking out about those comments.
Todd Tucker’s dad was not a pimp and his mom was not a woman of the streets. Todd’s father died when Todd was a child. But Tucker, who executive produces his own show, featured Mama Joyce, in his own house, disrespecting his own deceased father on camera. Many viewers have been left asking when did Kandi and Todd hear this footage, and why did they eventually let it air. Todd has been upset with the comments and his mother too. But in the same breath, Todd and Kandi have been celebrating how high their TV ratings are from a show in which two families call each other names for roughly the entire hour.
Since the “pimp” scene, Bravo spoke to Kandi. The network asked her “Why did Todd’s warning about Momma Joyce rub you the wrong way?” Kandi replied “I just didn’t like what he said. I don’t take it well when people say I’m warning you as if it’s a threat… I don’t like threats.”
Kandi has been accused of not standing up to her mother. Now Todd sits back as his mother gets insulted, Kandi watches as Todd’s mother throws her hand into Mama Joyce’s face, and Todd doesn’t say anything when his mother calls Mama Joyce a “b-tch”. Last Sunday, Todd and Kandi let their parents go at it, didn’t curb their conduct, and later relished in the ratings in a show based upon disrespect in-laws. And it all happened on Fathers’ Day.
