Somewhere, The Real Housewives of Atlanta's meanest mama (Kandi Burruss' Mama Joyce, but of course) is cackling up a storm. Now why, pray tell, might she be doing that? Because it sounds like the unhappy future she predicated for newlyweds Kandi and Todd Tucker is already unfolding, no matter what kind of positive spin Kandi may have tried to put on her fresh union when talking to Ebony magazine about the married life.
As we know, Mama Joyce is far from sweet on Todd. She did everything in her power (short of ordering a hitman) to try and keep Kandi from strutting up the aisle to bag her man. Sadly for her, love conquers all, and now Mama Joyce has to sit around and fret about Kandi giving her money (and her time) to someone other than the her.
But that might not be the case for very long. Kandi talked about how married life hasn't been what she expected. She and Todd have really been struggling -- and it might not be for the reasons you or Mama Joyce suspect.
Kandi and Todd have struggled since they tied the knot, and not one of the sex toys of which Kandi is so fond can help them. That's because they have barely spent any time together. That's right, the couple has basically been long distance while Todd works on a new T.V. project. Yeesh, that doesn't sound awesome.
Kandi tries to downplay the difficulty of living apart, but it's clearly had a strain. She admits to "fussing at him," and the duo have had to set pretty strict rules about when they talk to each other and when they see each other. Isn't the beginning of your marriage supposed to be the honeymoon period? This sounds like anything but. Here's hoping they work out the kinks soon and prove Mama Joyce wrong.
Do you think Kandi and Todd will last?
