Something old, something new, something borrowed, something shoe
On Sunday's The Real Housewives of Atlanta"
, there was a new twist to the old feud between Kandi Burruss
and her mother over the singer's engagement to Todd Tucker.
Burruss, 37, hopeful that things were looking up since she sat her fiancé and mother down for a dinner truce
last week, went to try on wedding dresses for the first time.
But before Burruss could get the first one cinched, all-out war broke out between Mama Joyce and Kandi's best friend and assistant, Carmon, who Burruss's mother has previously accused of sleeping with Tucker.
"She ain't gonna wear it nowhere," Mama Joyce said when she arrived to the bridal shop, referring to the wedding dress Kandi was trying on."[Unless] she finds someone else to marry."
"That is terrible," Carmon replied to her.
"You know him better than anybody," said Burruss's mother.
"What are you trying to imply?"
"It's what everybody else saying."
"It's not everybody," Carmon yelled. "You are everybody!"
"She needs to get ... out of here," Mama Joyce began to scream. "You ain't no d–– family ... I will [mess] her up!"
That's when Mama Joyce yanked off her shoe and tried to throw it at Carmon, before she was stopped.
"Everything Kandi had, she wanted then," Mama Joyce said, referring to the pair's childhood friendship, "and everything Kandi got, she wants it now, and that's including Todd, but she can have his little a––."
That's when Burruss's two aunts, who had accompanied Mama Joyce to the bridal shop, both told the Grammy winner that they didn't want her to marry Tucker either.
"You're always riding the fence," Carmon said at the end of the show, talking about Kandi's volatile relationship with her mother. "You have to make a choice that you ain't gonna keep putting up with this. She's gonna be running your life forever."
"I'm done!" Burruss said.
Perhaps the singer should elope, maybe to Savannah, Ga., where NeNe Leakes
is taking the Housewives on a girls trip next week.
