Joyce Burruss, Kandi Burruss, Momma Joyce

Don't mess with Momma Joyce. Kandi Burruss' mother popped up on the second part of The Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion and we learned quite a bit about Momma Joyce during her brief question and answer question with host Andy Cohen.

For starters, she thinks 71 is old. After a 71-year-old viewer said to be a "momma" she must earn that title, Momma Joyce said, "Well, tell her I ain't trying to be her mother, no way…Go to the next page."

When asked when was the last time she "dragged some heifer through the streets," Momma Joyce said while making a twirling hand motion, "Tell him it's been a long time, but I can still wrap up a good wig." But hey, she doesn't support violence…even though she said she'd choke Phaedra Parks. Water under the bridge.

The number one question: What exactly does Momma Joyce have against Todd? "I don't have a thing against Todd 'cause he doing everything right," she said. "He ain't did nothing wrong. If I had a son, if my son was living, I would push him in the same direction." But Todd's mom called Joyce a bitch. "I said, she ain't got nothing. I got too much. I wanted to come across the table, but I thought about bread again."

Momma Joyce also revealed she doesn't work because, well, she doesn't have to. "Momma's got a house that's completely paid off, and security and money in the bank, thank you very much. And momma got every kind of diamond that you want to think of, amen," she said.

But Kandi countered, saying he did help Momma Joyce out for a time when she found out Momma Joyce had credit cards in Kandi's name. It seems Momma Joyce likes the Home Shopping Network. "I spent my money on what I wanted to," Joyce said.

Something tells us we'll be seeing a lot more of Momma Joyce on Kandi's wedding spinoff.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta airs Sundays, 8 p.m. on Bravo.
