It was no secret that Kandi Burruss’ mother Mama Joyce was not a fan of Burruss’ new husband Todd Tucker or his mother Miss Sharon. If you watched any episode of Joyce and Sharon on Real Housewives of Atlanta or their interaction in Kandi’s Wedding special it was always a warfield between the two as Mama Joyce is notable for her constant belittling of her son-in-law and claims that his mother was a prostitute.
However, death settles all differences. This past week Tucker took to his Instagram to pay respect to his mother that past away after complications from having a stroke on Monday in her NY home.
He uploaded a picture of his mother with the caption:
“Today I lost my partner, my ride or die my best friend! I don’t know what to do? I’m lost! My heart hurts so much! She was a fighter, a warrior for her son! It was me and her against the world! She’s in a better place!! Mom I love you to death! Rest in peace!”
Since her death, TMZ reached out to Mama Joyce in regards of the death of Todd’s mother. The site says, “she is sorry for attacking Sharon by repeating gossip (which turned out to be false) — and wishes they’d patched things up before Miss Sharon died on Tuesday.”
However she “won’t attend the funeral out of respect for Miss Sharon’s friends and family. She knows a lot of people would be pissed if she showed her face … so instead she’s going to send flowers.”
But if Miss Sharon’s death taught Mama Joyce anything it is that she wants to build a better relationship with her daughter’s husband, Todd.
