Everyone seems to have a crazy storyline on “Real Housewives of Atlanta” this season. Kenya Moore is texting a married man, Porsha Stewart is battling back and forth with her soon-to-be ex husband and Kandi Burruss is prepping to walk down the aisle to Todd Tucker, if her mother doesn’t get in the way.
Kandi’s Mom, a familiar face on the Bravo series, is adamantly against Kandi making things official with Todd. In an interview with ABC News Radio, Kandi claims Wendy Williams first put the bug in Mama Joyce’s ear that Todd had negative intentions.

Why Mama Joyce Hates Todd:
“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.’ Next thing I know, my momma comes back and is like, ‘Wendy said that he was an opportunist.'”
How Mama Joyce Has Halted Wedding Planning:
“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. 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.”
Why Kandi Still Loves Todd Despite Family Rift:
“I just love everything about him…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.”
Wendy, though? No matter how Mama Joyce developed ill feelings toward Todd, they still present a difficult conundrum for Kandi. If you were in her shoes, would you move forward with someone your parents disapproved of?
