The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 6 Episode 21 Recap: Mama Joyce vs. Todd!

by at . Comments

The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 6 Episode 21 focused on Kandi Burruss' Mama Joyce hating on her fiance Todd Tucker, a source of tension all season.

Often lost in the shuffle (especially after Porsha Stewart beat down Kenya Moore), Mama Joyce vs. Todd vs. Kandi is shaping up to be a big storyline.

She thinks he’s taking advantage of Kandi, had a P.I. follow him around and considered PLANTING a hot woman around him to see if he’d take the bait.

Well, when you watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta online this week, you'll see an awkward therapy session Joyce surprisingly shows up at.

“We’ve tried counseling in the past and it didn’t work out so well,” Kandi says, regarding a session she did it with Mama Joyce and her late ex A.J. Jewell.

The counselor gets on her case for not getting to know Todd, and she takes this without getting defensive. Instead, she cries, “I worry about her."

The trio eventually plan more counseling sessions, and at a rehearsal for Kandi’s play based on her life, Joyce and Todd make awkward small talk.

“We’ve had our ups and downs,” Todd opens up. “Somewhere, we went wrong. You looked at me as an opportunist, not here for the right reasons."

"If it’s an understanding that you’ll never like me, as long as I hear it from you and not from someone else… At what time did you stop liking me?”

“I didn’t stop liking you. I stopped respecting you,” Mama Joyce says.


He tells her he chose to stop working because most of his job options were out of town and he and Kandi agreed it was better for him to be around instead.

Just the same, “I’m not here to get anything from Kandi or her money,” he says, “I just really want us to be a family. I want to move to the next level with Kandi.”

Mama Joyce agrees to at least give it a try, admits that “maybe I’ve been a little too protective,” and the two hug it out. That felt almost like .... progress?


  • Kandi believes Porsha is not taking the play schedule seriously.
  • Aspiring actress NeNe pretends she's never heard of Scandal.
  • Peter and Cynthia start to fight over shady financial dealings.
  • Kenya's dog is mauled to death by a neighboring dog.
  • Porsha is mostly MIA. Just wait for the reunion.
