Things aren't looking so well for Kandi Burruss' and Todd Tucker's marriage plans so far on their spin-off “Real Housewives of Atlanta: Kandi's Wedding." In an interview with The Young, Black, and Fabulous, posted on Friday, June 6, Kandi talked about the drama between Kandi's mom, Mama Joyce, and Todd's mom, Sharon. Kandi's best friend/assistant Carmon also talked about the fight that happened between her and Todd.

Previews for the show promise that viewers will see Mama Joyce and Sharon get into a heated argument, with Sharon getting up from the table as if she's really going to smack Mama Joyce. Kandi explained in the interview that the encounter between the two blew up because Sharon was "on 10" and "SO upset" after her mom called her a whore, which Kandi made sure to say is absolutely not true.

Many people probably wouldn't blame Sharon if she got physical with Mama Joyce. In the premiere episode, Mama Joyce, intent on derailing the wedding, accused Todd's deceased dad of being a pimp and Sharon his "working girl." Mama Joyce even said that the two raised Todd in such a way that he was trained to go after Kandi's money.

The drama wasn't just limited to Mama Joyce and Sharon. Things also got heated between Todd and Carmon. Carmon, who was designated by Kandi as her impromptu wedding planner, wasn't really feeling up to the task. Todd picked up on her hesitation and reluctance and confronted her about it, leading to a fight in which Carmon storms off. Carmon later ends up quitting her wedding planner job.

In the interview, Carmon explained that Mama Joyce pushed her over the edge. She said that she was already hesitant to tape the show because she knew she would have to face Kandi's mom again. Carmon also said that Todd shouldn't have said anything to her because she doesn't work for him and that Kandi should've "check[ed] him on that."

Of course, fans of the Atlanta housewives already know that Kandi and Todd did end up marrying each other in a beautiful wedding in Atlanta in early April, with all of their loved ones in attendance. That doesn't mean, however, that all the drama that led up to that day isn't worth watching, as evidenced by the fact that 2.4 million total viewers watched the premiere episode of “Real Housewives of Atlanta: Kandi's Wedding."
