The preview for Kandi Burruss' wedding spin-off shows that viewers, not surprisingly, can expect a lot of drama from her mom Mama Joyce. As the last season of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" showed, she was extremely against her daughter's relationship with Todd Tucker and even almost got physical several times because she was so angry. So what does she think of Kandi having a baby with Todd? In an interview with Wetpaint Entertainment, posted on Tuesday, May 27, Mama Joyce was surprisingly optimistic about it.

Just a few weeks after their purple-themed wedding, Kandi revealed that she and Todd are already trying for a baby. She told In Touch magazine that she wants either one or two babies with Todd.

When asked what she thinks of the couple's baby announcement, Mama Joyce was quite surprised. She said that she hasn't heard from Kandi that she's already trying for a baby. Perhaps the Atlanta housewife was scared of what reaction she would get so she decided not to tell her mom the news personally before making the announcement to the press?

Despite not being the first to hear the news, Mama Joyce isn't too pissed. She diplomatically said that if Kandi does have a baby with Todd, then she'll have another grandchild. She added that Riley, Kandi's daughter, would probably love to have a little brother or sister.

Mama Joyce had more positive things to say in her interview. When asked what she thought of Todd's new TV One series, "Hollywood Divas," which will feature former "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" star Lisa Wu, she said that "she's very happy for him." Mama Joyce congratulating Todd on his career is huge since his supposed lack of financial success and career stability, in comparison to Kandi, was her biggest problem with him.

As for Kandi Burruss' wedding spin-off, which premieres Sunday, June 1, Mama Joyce said that viewers will be "pleasantly surprised." One thing that likely won't surprise viewers, since it won't happen, is a hug and makeup session between Mama Joyce and Todd's mother. The preview shows that Mama Joyce and Todd's mother get quite heated with other. Mama Joyce admitted that she has not seen or spoken to Todd's mother since the wedding.
