Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker have been engaged for quite some time now, and although we get the feeling that they would get married in a heartbeat, Kandi’s mother Mama Joyce has other wishes. Joyce has never approved of Todd — labeling him an opportunist and claiming that he has cheated on Kandi with her good friend, Carmon — and her disapproval of Kandi’s man is a big reason why the couple has yet to walk down the aisle.
Todd, along with the other Househusbands, was on Watch What Happens Live last Sunday January 19, and Andy Cohen dove right in, asking him how he feels watching Mama Joyce bash him on a weekly basis. “It’s very challenging because I have a daughter and my daughter watches the show,” he began, referring to 17-year-old Kae. “To see someone lie about her dad or just make things up or talk bad about us is really tough.”
You can say that again, Todd! And although Todd has continued to stick by his lady’s side, it seems like his patience may be wearing thin after months of bickering and trying to prove himself to Kandi’s mom. When Andy asked about the status of Kandi and Todd’s engagement, he was less enthusiastic than he’s been in the past. “We’re taking it day by day,” he dished. “We’re definitely taking it day by day.”
Just last week Mama Joyce noted that she’s now giving Kandi and Todd some much-needed space, so hopefully things are less tense with the trio now. We’d hate to see Mama Joyce drive a good guy like Todd away for good!Do you think Mama Joyce will ruin Kandi and Todd’s engagement? Check out the WWHL clip and tell us your thoughts below!
