Mama Joyce: ‘I Have Rekindled A Healthy Relationship With My Daughter’ [Video]


Kandi Burruss and her mother haven’t been seeing eye-to-eye when it comes to Kandi’s relationship with Todd Tucker, but Mama Joyce says the two have finally reached common ground.

“My relationship with Kandi now is in a very good place,” Joyce recently told

At its worst, the two weren’t on speaking terms but Mama Joyce said she reached out to Kandi before her daughter left for a trip and the two have reconciled.

“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.

Though Kandi and Mama Joyce have reconciled, she said she’s still hasn’t really connected with Todd.

“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.”

She still doesn’t totally see it for Todd and still thinks he’s somewhat of an opportunist, but  she’ll be happy if she’s wrong about him.

“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.”

We’re glad to see the family is making progress. Watch Mama Joyce sound off below!
