Mama Joyce is going full Godfather on the next all-new Real Housewives of Atlanta -- and only ETonline has your exclusive first look at her confrontation with Phaedra Parks.
Joyce, Kandi Burruss’ mom, wants to make sure her daughter’s pregnancy is as stress-free as possible, so she schedules a meeting with Phaedra to discuss the tension between the one-time besties. The pair have been butting heads over a business deal with Kandi’s husband, Todd Tucker, all season long.
“What happened with you and Kandi?” Joyce asks Phaedra, before reclining back in a chair to get her Godfather on.
“With this pregnancy, ‘cause it’s kind of a high risk, you know, I just don’t want her to just get stressed out,” Joyce says, “Or be emotionally unbalanced about anything. ‘Cause I don’t want Kandi to have any, any problems.”
"I would never want anyone to do anything to hurt her," she continues, "Or cause her to be upset in any way. Because you know Mama Bear. You know me."
Phaedra does know Mama Joyce -- and her history of lashing out on people she doesn’t like -- so she just sits back and listens to Kandi’s overprotective mom.
“Well, I’m definitely not getting ready to discuss the past with Mama Joyce, because she has been known to get heated in an argument,” Phaedra coos in a confessional. “With Mama Joyce’s track record, I am not surprised she is still in the pot-stirring business.”
You can tune into The Real Housewives of Atlanta on Bravo this Sunday at 8 p.m. ET to see the full showdown go down.
