Mama Joyce Spews Venom Following Kandi Burruss’s Wedding

Published by on Tuesday, April 8, 2014 at 11:30 am.

Even though Kandi Burruss and fiancé Todd Tucker went on and tied the knot, Mama Joyce, instead of merely being happy for her baby girl, is still throwing shade at the groom.

Simply put, her thoughts on Mr. Tucker hasn’t changed, especially given his balking at signing a prenup. To her credit, she managed to hold her tongue while attending the wedding, a herculean feat when the minister asked if anyone disapproved of the union.

“I had no reason to bite my tongue,” Mama Joyce said in an interview. “I’m not going to be the one to stop her from jumping into the fire. I tried, I did that all ahead of time.”

A major part of her gripe was confirmed the night before the wedding.: “I got a little pissed at the bridegroom the night before this wedding,” she further explained. “He kind of held up on signing the prenup and didn’t come to the rehearsal dinner because he didn’t want to sign it. His mom said she didn’t see no reason for him to have to sign because they were in love. He was the one who didn’t have a damn thing, but that’s another story. But from what I understand, he did sign.”

Given this fact, Mama Joyce, while not fully moving past her concerns, is able to see the matter at Kandi’s responsibility. “Long as she’s happy, that’s the one that has to be happy. Doesn’t make no difference if I’m happy or not, she’s the one that has to live with him. I did everything I could do. If she’s jumping in the river with sharks, she’s gonna get chewed up.”

The family fight ain’t over until the mama sings and yes… we’re talking about Mama Joyce here.

Truthfully speaking, Real Housewives of Atlanta Kandi Burruss’ matriarch Mama Joyce doesn’t really sing, she just rants. And she loves to go on and on about how she’s really not feeling Kandi’s fiancé Todd Tucker.

RHOA’s new breakout star for the senior set even expressed her concerns for her daughter’s union to In Touch. “Kandi’s on one page, and Todd is on his page,” Mama Joyce told the publication.

Mama Joyce also revealed that Kandi originally wanted to wed Todd on Valentine’s Day, but that is no longer happening. And of course Mama has her theories on why that is, “Kandi is in love — and Todd is in love with Todd. He could love Kandi, but he loves Todd more.”

About his upcoming wedding plans to Kandi, Todd told Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live that, “we’re taking it day-by-day.”

But of course, Mama Burruss had the last word on that one too. “Kandi really loves him for whatever reason,” Mama Joyce told In Touch. “Todd’s got a good game.”

With a mama like that on your case you really have to watch your back.

Porsha Stewart Lashes Back at Critics of Her New Mansion

If reality star Porsha Stewart seemed a little strapped for cash during her divorce to Kordell, now she’s flexing her cash-ability, having recently bought a 8,000-square foot mansion. And she’s ready for the haters who balk at her purchase, especially some of her Real Housewives of Atlanta co-stars.

Phaedra Parks, a lawyer and a pretty savvy business woman, informed Porsha that she wasn’t making a smart move by leasing-to-own her new crib. In response, Porsh hit Twitter, with her own response.  “Loving how everyone watching my pocket just make sure you are also watching me laughing to the bank,” Porsha tweeted. “Trust and believe half of #rhoa is leasing!”

Ultimately, Ms. Stewart found her center in the matter when she tweeted: “Got to be happy for yourself!” Glad to see she’s making her own way.

Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss is on the warpath and she’s lashing out against her Twitter followers who’ve been hating on her mother, Mama Joyce.

On Sunday night’s Watch What Happens Live, Burruss says fans can tweet all they like but she will always financially support her mother despite the fact that she insults her fiancé Todd Tucker regularly on TV.

“She can be fine without my help, let me say that. But I feel like as her daughter, it’s my job that she’s good,” Burruss told host Andy Cohen. “She made sure I was good growing up; I’m going to make sure she’s good. I don’t’ care if she doesn’t like my relationship, that’s my mom.”

Driven to tears, Kandi continued, “That’s my mama and y’all can Tweet till you get blue in the face, I don’t care! She can have whatever she wants ‘cause that’s my mama!”

The RHOA star even says despite the supposed bad between her mother and hubby-to-be, that he wants Kandi’s relationship with Mama Joyce to improve.  ”Todd and I are doing great and he wants me to work thing out with my mama,” Burruss says. He wants our relationship to get better.”

Stand by your mama, Kandi!

Kim Zolciak Files Legal Documents Against Kandi Burruss

The legal drama among reality TV stars just keep flying. This time out Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kim Zolciak has filed legal documents asking a judge to toss a lawsuit filed against her by co-star Kandi Burruss, according to TMZ.

To recap for those who don’t remember, Zolciak and Burruss were musical collaborators on the Zolciak’s one-hit wonder, “Tardy for the Party.” In Burruss’ lawsuit she’s alleging that Kim hoarded money earned from the single that co-wrote together. The song debuted on The Real Housewives of Atlanta in 2009. Burruss’ musical talents are well known in the industry. She’s a former member of Xscape and is the Grammy-Award winning songwriter behind TLC’s hit “No Scrubs.”

But Zolciak believes Kandi’s claims are bogus because she says Burruss was overpaid $6,000 for her songwriting contributions. Kim believes Kandi is only creating this ruckus to try to get free publicity for her upcoming new spinoff reality show, “The Kandi Factory.”

If it’s true, someone once said there’s no such thing as bad publicity.

Kandi Burruss Wants a Prenup Before her Big Day

A little over a week ago, reality TV’s new hot couple Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker announced their engagement. And now Burruss, like any financially responsible woman, has begun to utter the “p” word… prenup.

On her Bravo blog, the Real Houswives of Atlanta star broached the subject from a discussion she had with fellow cast member, Porsha, who said she and her husband, NFL star Kordell Stewart, didn’t have one. Burruss wrote: “I know that some people feel if you are truly in love and are planning to be dedicated to your marriage that a pre-nup somehow means the person requesting the pre-nup is expecting the marriage to fail. I don’t agree. I feel like it’s a safety precaution.”

“Just like if you have a fire extinguisher in your home it doesn’t mean you expect it to burn down,” she continued, ” but you’re just prepared to put out the fire before it starts if need be. I’ve had friends and associates who didn’t get a pre-nup say ‘they didn’t need one,’ ‘she or he would never do that,’ etc. But then later when they got divorced, things got ugly, and the person tried to get everything… I feel like people do some crazy and vindictive things when they’re hurt, so I think there should be agreements set in place while everyone is thinking clearly. That way if D-day ever comes (and hopefully it won’t, but if it does), then it doesn’t have to get uglier and more hurtful than it already is.”

Let’s just hope Todd understands when his boo whips the “fire extinguisher” on him before the big day. But they seem like such a grounded couple, a prenup shouldn’t cause any hiccups. After all, preservation of your funds is the new first law of nature.

Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Peter Thomas Airs Out NeNe, Sheree and Apollo Again!

Cynthia Bailey’s storyline on Real Housewives of Atlanta might be a bit of a snooze compared to her other cast mates,  but her husband Peter Thomas stirred up enough drama for the both of them after running his mouth about the gang in Uptown magazine and he’s back for round two in a follow up interview!

Peter summed up his feelings about the cast in his first interview with Uptown and said, “I can’t stand Phaedra’s ass. I think Kim is crazy as f–k. Nene has a big-ass mouth, okay? And Sheree’s not cute! She thinks she’s cute, but she’s not cute. The only one I like is Kandi, and she’s too soft. That’s why she got played with Kim.” Well damn! The comments didn’t fly with Sheree Whitfield who confronted Peter on the show about his choice words and Phaedra Phark’s husband Apollo also got buck in the name of standing up for his lady, but that didn’t stop Peter from having everyone’s name in his mouth after. Peep the second interview where he elaborates on his first jabs.

On clashing with Apollo:

What people see is what it is. I don’t really know Apollo. Apollo felt like he was defending his wife [regarding] the Uptown  article that I did…the article wasn’t about them. The article was about how I felt about what my wife said and what people were saying about, you know, Uptown Restaurant and Lounge and that she gave me money to do it and I wanted to set the record straight by saying yes she made a contribution but I didn’t take her wallet to do it.

The real problem with Sheree:

She talks about everybody fu–ed up all the time, especially my wife. She said my wife is spineless. She said my wife has no backbone. She said my wife follows around NeNe like some little puppy. She says a lot of really fu–ed up things and my wife is too much of a classy chick to even go in on that so, when they ask me what I think, because me and my wife is one, I’m gone say how I feel. She thinks she’s cute but I don’t think she’s cute. If she thinks she’s cute, then that’s on her. It’s like when I watched [the show Sunday] night and she said ‘well, I know I’m cute’ and my answer was ‘really.’ It didn’t change how I feel. But all of that was at the top of the year. I just saw Sheree recently after the Soul Train Awards. She came through to bar One and maybe she forgave me or I forgave her. We don’t know. Let’s see what happens next.

About NeNe and her mouth:

When I say NeNe is loud, it’s because NeNe got a big ass mouth but I love her. I love her to death. I love her. She’s cool as hell. She’s the realest as far as I’m concerned.

About Kim and her mouth:

When I say Kim is crazy as hell, it’s because her mouth is so reckless. All kinds of sh-t come out of her mouth. I don’t think they have ever shot Kim without beeping, without beep beep beep beep beep beep beep beep, because she talks crazy. That’s how she talks.

And there you have it!

Now everybody gets their opinions and I can’t say that Peter’s coming out of nowhere with his, but for someone who has a problem with everyone else running their mouth (and with another husband standing up for his wife as a result), he sure is playing the pot calling the kettle black by doing the same! It’s almost laughable that he’s even meddling in their mayhem at all but I guess one of those guys had to fill the void Dwight left…

Do you think Peter was out of pocket?

Kandi’s New Boyfriend Rumored To Be Deadbeat Dad

Published by Runteldat on Wednesday, October 6, 2010 at 12:00 am.

Kandi Burress’ new boyfriend, Baltimore Ravens star Willis McGahee, has been the subject of various rumors since it was reported that he would be joining the singer and reality star on The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

In short, Media Take Out basically tried to say he was living with his baby mama. However, another blog has reported that it’s received two emails from people saying the site got it’s info wrong.

They say he’s a deadbeat dad.

Here’s one of the emails sent to The Jasmine Brand:

“I read your blog that referenced Ravens player, Willis McGahee, and I just wanted 2 tell u anonymously that Willis has 7 kids, as well as 7 baby mamas. That’s what “a lot of kids is”. He’s flying to Atlanta and won’t come see his own children. He is the true definition of a dead beat father. Media Take Out has their story wrong. He does have a 5 week old baby, but he doesn’t live with that child’s mother. Willis also has a young daughter with his baby mama, Tiffany, that happens to be a lesbian.  While he played for the Buffalo Bills, he also had another daughter.”

As it turns out, in 2008 he was subject to three separate paternity suits:

Jan. 7–Father knows best? A third paternity suit was filed against Willis McGahee, 25, Buffalo Bills running back and former University of Miami Hurricane. Keisha Walls, 27, an elementary school teacher, says McGahee is the father of son Kai Walls, born April 19, 2006.

Chiniqua Smith, 26, also a teacher, says McGahee is the father of Willis McGahee IV, born Jan. 6, 2006. Dorothy Doretha McNeil, 29, sued McGahee in 2005, saying he fathered daughter Bria McGahee, born Jan. 17 of that year. In the cases of Smith and McNeil, McGahee has been declared the biological father and is paying support. “He’s an honorable person,” says McGahee’s attorney, Howard Rudolph.

Oh, Kandi. Good luck with that one.

Drama At Real Housewife Wedding?

Published by Runteldat on Wednesday, July 28, 2010 at 11:50 am.

Last weekend, new Atlanta housewife, Cynthia Bailey, wed her longtime boyfriend in a ceremony that is believed to be featured on the season finale of the upcoming  edition of The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

When word got out that Cynthia’s fellow housewives would be in attendance, most of us expected there to be drama.

And according to Page Six, there was.

Page Six reports:

The wedding of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” newcomer Cynthia Bailey started and ended in drama. The Saturday nuptials in Atlanta to restaurateur Peter Thomas was held up for 45 minutes by castmate Nene Leakes, who barged into Bailey’s bridal suite and demanded her hair and makeup be done. Kim Zolciak then got into a tiff with her blond boy toy, who “was checking out a hot redhead while puffing a cigar. Kim caught him in the act,” said a witness. Sheree Whitfield, Kandi Burruss and Phaedra Parks attended, but not Lisa Wu Hartwell, who we hear is being axed. Bravo had no comment.

NeNe has taken to Twitter to deny the reports that she was cutting up for camera time.

She tweeted:

Why do these bloggers lie so much! I went 2 a wedding demanding hair & makeup! Now y would I do that? I have my own team! Thank u

I caused drama @ a wedding! Yup that’s what I do now. Go 2 weddings & cause drama

The New York Post’s Page Six isn’t a blog site, but nevertheless that’s NeNe’s official denial.

As for Lisa Wu Hartwell not being there, welp, we told you all she was reportedly getting the boot. She has yet to tweet a denial so we’ll assume there’s still truth to it.
