It's no secret that Mama Joyce is very important, at least in her own mind but also to daughter and "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star Kandi Burruss. Just how important she is to the cast probably depends on who you are though. When asked about the upcoming season of "RHOA," Mama Joyce said she deserves her own peach according to Sister 2 Sister on Thursday.

When it comes to ratings, then Mama Joyce did indeed make her mark through season 6 as she hassled Kandi about her upcoming wedding to Todd Tucker. Fans saw her argue with the in-laws as Todd's mother even called her a "b****."

When asked about her part on the upcoming season 7 of "Real Housewives of Atlanta," Mama Joyce said in an interview, “I should have a peach, don’t you think? I think I was a very important part of this last season." Yes she was very important, as are most of the husbands but that doesn't mean they should be a housewife.

There were reports during season 6 that Mama Joyce wasn't a paid part of the cast and she wasn't happy about it. There was also talk of just how much Kandi Burruss funded her mother's life. While the elder insisted she had her own money, it's pretty common knowledge that her well-being is funded by Kandi.

Mama Joyce has been the voice of dissent in Kandi's marriage to Todd Tucker no matter how much pleading Kandi has done. She has started arguments with Todd and both his parents. If anything causes stress and grief for the newlyweds, it's probably all the drama coming from the mother of the bride.

Right now Bravo is airing the wedding special for "Real Housewives of Atlanta" and Mama Joyce has been enjoying that spotlight. An upcoming episode has been teased for weeks and will show Mama Joyce getting into a major blowout with Todd's mother Sharon. What will the outcome be? It's really unknown at this point.
