Kandi Burruss broke down in tears while defending the behavior of her overprotective mother dubbed "Momma Joyce" on "The Real Housewives of Atlanta."
Momma Joyce has vehemently disagreed with her singer-songwriter daughter's decision to marry her now fiance and broadcast producer Todd Tucker. However, Momma Joyce insists that she is done meddling in her daughter's relationship.
"I'm out of it. Whatever Kandi does, it is completely her decision now," Joyce told Radar Online recently. "I wish her well. I just hope that this is the right choice for her."
Joyce explained her issues with her daughter's fiance.
"They have worn me down to the point where it has made me sick. I just don't feel like Todd is the right choice," she told Radar Online. "I think he's manipulative… I've tried to shield my child, but I'm tired."
When Burruss appeared on Bravo TV late night show "Andy Cohen Live," she became emotional when one fan questioned if her mother was reacting in extreme ways because she was afraid of losing her daughter's financial backing. Burruss did not hesitate to defend her mother against the claims and broke down in tears while doing so.
"I don't care what y'all have to say," she said on the Andy Cohen show. "That's my mama! I'm going to make sure my mama's good."
Burruss made it clear that she was not moved by the criticism of fans who did not agree with her mother's behavior. The singer-songwriter and producer insisted that she would always provide for her mother.
"She don't have to talk to me. She don't have to say nothing to me," Burruss said. "That's my mama and y'all can Tweet 'til you get blue in the face, I don't care! She can have whatever she wants 'cause that's my mama!"
However, Joyce insisted that she was finished trying to talk her daughter out of marrying Tucker.
"I'm over it," she told Radar Online. "I pray to God I'm wrong about him."
