While at the hotel, I was in the lobby watching television. Out of nowhere I see that Real Housewives of Atlanta is getting coverage on Headline News. For two Sundays in a row, Momma Joyce (Kandi's mom) was a trending topic on Twitter. Not surprising considering how she has been acting lately. It is no secret that Momma Joyce is outspoken. When Kandi made her debut on RHOA she was with her now deceased fiance A.J. Momma Joyce was not too crazy about him, but she was chill about it. She spoke her peace and let it go.
Apparently, Bravo must have threaten to give Momma Joyce the boot because she has up the ante. It all started when she told Kandi that she doesn't like Todd (Kandi's fiance) and that she felt he was an opportunist. Momma Joyce even pulled her grandbaby, Riley, into the drama and told Kandi that Riley didn't like Todd either. But Ms. Joyce isn't the type to talk behind your back. She tells Todd to his face that she thinks he is using Kandi, accused him of messing around with Kandi's friend, Carmen, and roasted the engagement ring he bought for Kandi. Even with all of that, Ms. Joyce still had more to give us.
This past Sunday's episode, Kandi went shopping for a wedding dress. At first it was just Kandi, Carmen, and some random guy. While Kandi is trying on a dress, Momma Joyce and her goons, I mean her sisters, walk in. You can tell by the looks on their faces that came ready to rumble. The random guy was talking about how Kandi looked in the dress and Momma Joyce blurts out that Kandi won't be wearing a wedding dress anyway. This causes Carmen to call her out on her rudeness and that's when crap hits the fan.
Momma Joyce goes off on Carmen, asking her why she is even there and stands up like she was ready to throw hands. Then the random guy starts holding Momma back. This is where I give a huge eye roll. If somebody is having to hold you back you are not really about that life. Even her sisters get up like they have the strength to fight somebody half their age. They get Momma Joyce to calm down but not for long. Ms. Joyce gets going again and this time Carmen calls her a fool. That was the fire Ms. Joyce needed and she does the most ratchet thing you can do in a public place: take off your shoe and threaten to throw it at somebody.
Again, random guy is holding back Ms. Joyce and the other sisters stand up like they about to do something. I don't condone violence but don't take out a weapon unless you are going to use it. If Ms. Joyce wanted to throw that shoe, she could have. However, she ain't that crazy. She knew Carmen would jump across that bridal shop on her if that shoe had even came close.
I'm not sure what has gotten into Ms. Joyce. Maybe she saw how quick Bravo will drop you if you are not colorful (no pun intended) enough. I have a feeling this is not the last of Momma Joyce and her goons.
What did you think of Momma Joyce and her actions?
