Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Kandi Burruss’ mother, Mama Joyce, has called her fiancé Todd Tucker an opportunist since the pair got engaged, bought a house and moved in together. Burrurss, also a singer, songwriter and entrepreneur has always provided financial assistance to her mother, she continues to feel threatened by Todd’s place in Kandi’s life.

On the Dec. 1 episode of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” Kandi and Todd invited Mamma Joyce over for dinner and a heart-to-heart. Mama Joyce refused to speak to Tucker, ignoring his polite inquiries about her. Instead, Mama Joyce said hello to the dog and shot Todd the evil eye.

Tucker was attempting to have a calm and rational conversation with his future mother-in-law when she told him she has people watching him, when out of nowhere a seemingly intoxicated Mama Joyce said to Tucker:

“Ain’t river high enough, ain’t no ocean deep enough, ain’t no desert hot enough to keep me off you’re a**, baby!”

Things calmed down a bit when Kandi returned to the table and Mama Joyce animatedly explained that they were “bonding.” After Todd revealed to Kandi’s mother that the couple had considered eloping because of the friction between them, Mama Joyce became very quiet, saying, “I’m a work in progress.”

Burruss told Mama Joyce that now they could move toward planning a wedding and Mama Joyce did not say anything. Burruss asked her mother if she had anything more to say, to which Mama Joyce quietly responded, “Pie’s good.”

After all the animated yelling, finger-pointing and hand-waving, Mama Joyce seemed to calm down immediately, causing fans to wonder if Mama Joyce had been drunk during dinner or was she just putting on a show for the cameras. Reportedly Mama Joyce has repeatedly claimed that “people in the streets” tell her all the time that Todd Tucker is cheating on her daughter, going to so far as to claim Kandi’s best friend Carmon and Todd have been having an affair.
