Kandi Burruss has been having a tough time with her mother Joyce when it comes to planning her wedding to fiancé Todd, and it looks like last night's episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta was the final nail in the coffin for those looking to give Kandi's overbearing mama the benefit of a doubt.
We've watched Joyce diss Kandi's engagement ring, and she's been keeping a stern eye on Todd since the day she met him. Kandi has blamed Wendy Williams for putting the ideas in Joyce's head about Todd taking advantage of Kandi, and last night, RHOA fans were pretty unanimous when it came to siding with Kandi about Joyce's overprotective ways. In fact, fans were so outspoken about #MamaJoyce that it became a trending topic on Twitter.
The consensus according fans? Kandi needs to step up and tell Mama Joyce to back down if she wants her engagement to turn into a happy marriage.

Some fans brought up the very good (and hilarious, below) point that Kandi could be looking at a very lonely, loveless life if she keeps putting up with her mom's outbursts.
Kandi is too old to be afraid of her mama. Mama Joyce is the reason why she is single. She will probably grow old with her #RHOA

And the dig about Todd's engagement ring for Kandi? Plenty found fault with Joyce's attitude and stressed that it's the sentiment, not the size of the rock, that matters when it comes to finding the perfect diamond.
