Real Housewife Of Atlanta's Mama Joyce Visits Chattanooga Thursday

Tuesday, May 20, 2014

Mama Joyce Jones, the "tell it like it is” celebrity mom, will be making her debut appearance in the Scenic City on Thursday as the guest co-host for “Feel it Thursday”, a music showcase featuring local artist at Mocha Restaurant and Music Lounge at 511 Broad St., next door to Sugar’s Ribs.

Mama Joyce Jones is the mother of Bravo TV Housewives of Atlanta cast member Kandi Burruss. The series delves into the lives of six women from Atlanta’s social elite while juggling families, careers and jam-packed social calendars. This past season of the Real Housewives of Atlanta revolved around Ms. Jones as she very displayed her disdain and disapproval of Kandi’s new husband Todd Tucker, a former Bravo TV producer. She has been known as Mama Joyce throughout her daughter’s tenure on the show.  Ms. Jones has always had a recurring role; however, on this go round, her disapproval of her daughter’s new husband was a painful sticking point throughout season six, said officials. 

Real Housewives of Atlanta is the highest rated show in the housewives franchise with an average audience of about 3.7 million.
