Since the announcement of their engagement last year, Kandi Burruss and her fiancé Todd Tucker have faced a hailstorm of criticism from the singer’s mother, Joyce Jones (aka Mama Joyce). And to the couple’s dismay, Jones’ disapproval of Tucker has not only halted their wedding plans it also created a rift between Burruss and her mother.
