And when a parent is constantly bickering with their child over their significant other not being good enough it can put a strain on the relationship, and that has happened here.
But Mama Joyce is reporting some good news for a change (or at least it’s hopeful good news) about her relationship with her daughter.
“My relationship with Kandi now is in a very good place,” Joyce recently told HLNtv.com.
This is saying a lot since the two weren’t speaking to each other for a few weeks because of the ladies on “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” and Tucker.
“She was going out of town, and I said I am not going to let my baby go out of town and not [give] her a call. We hadn’t talked for a couple of weeks. I was really upset with her. Really, I was upset because of the ladies on the ‘Housewives,’” Joyce explained.
Some have questioned Mama Joyce’s own motives. She is living off of her daughter, but has called Tucker an opportunist and cheater.
“I called Kandi,” said Joyce who wanted her daughter to address the statements and stand up for her mom. “They think that I was more concerned about her money and taking care of me and that’s not the case.”
But either way, she’s butting out of her daughter’s relationship… finally!
“I decided to stay out of their relationship and let them deal with their relationship. They’re together, but I’m out of their relationship. It’s much healthier, but I have rekindled a healthy relationship with my daughter and my granddaughter, and we’re in a good place,” she said. “I really haven’t talked to Todd.”
In fact, the only way anyone will hear a word out of Mama Joyce about her daughter’s relationship is if she apologizes.
“I pray and hope that I am wrong about Todd and if I am wrong, I’ll come back to HLN and say, ‘I am wrong about Todd Tucker,’ and if I’m right, I will be totally quiet and y’all will not hear a word from me.”
Well, maybe she’ll decide to stay on the show too now that she can at least tolerate the relationship and watch from the sidelines.
