Kandi Burruss has a mixture of praise and criticism for Mama Joyce, and their relationship continues to be tumultuous. Wetpaint reports on Tuesday that the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star recently praised her mother for losing weight, but this has not stopped her from discussing other problems. One of their biggest issues continues to be her mother’s disapproval of Todd Tucker.

Posing in a hot pink dress without sleeves, Mama Joyce allowed Burruss to take her picture and post it on social media. Burruss shares she is proud of her mother’s weight loss and is amazed at how wonderful she looked at the reunion. Mama Joyce has been working out hard to achieve her new shape, and she is showing it off.

Although the weight loss has made Burruss happy, she is not thrilled with everything else her mother has done. In the upcoming reunion special, Burruss reveals Mama Joyce has wasted money on gambling and shopping. She also shares that she helped her mother financially despite Joyce’s claims she does not need her daughter’s financial assistance.

Mama Joyce’s disapproval of Tucker may have faded slightly, but many fans still question if she was worried about losing her daughter’s money to the new husband. Burruss’ new allegations during the reunion seem to support this idea because she reveals she has been helping her mother. In addition, she shares her mother opened credit cards using her name without permission. This breach of trust seems to have happened months ago, but it still affects Burruss’ today.

Burruss provided monthly support payments to her mother to help her, but Mama Joyce denies these claims. She continues to insist she is independent of her daughter and does not need her help. The “Real Housewives of Atlanta” reunion reveals that the relationship between the mother and daughter continues to be complex.
