Mama Joyce, Real Housewives of AtlantaAfter applying the silent treatment, it seems Mama Joyce has turned over a new leaf and decided to reconcile with daughter Kandi Burruss.

“I’m trying to rebuild my relationship with my daughter because that’s all I have,” Joyce Jones recently told In Touch magazine.

The mother-daughter relationship was strained due to Mama Joyce’s objections to Kandi’s choice in a husband. She accused the TV producer of being an opportunist and cheating on Kandi.

Trying to convince her daughter didn’t turn out so well as Mama Joyce nearly ended up in a bout with Kandi’s friend.

“I will never ever let no one take me there again,” she told…

LisaRaye McCoyShe’s portrayed a stripper once or twice, but LisaRaye McCoy recently clarified that the roles she accepts as an actress are one thing, and being turnt up on reality TV is another.

“I have a skill. I’m an actress. So, that means anytime the writers write something, I breathe the life into those words. That’s my part of the job,” she told Sister 2 Sister. “Reality ain’t never been that. Reality is, ‘Turn the camera on. Act the fool if you will or do what you want and we’re going to film this.’”
