Breaking News: RHOA Star Todd Tucker’s Mother, Miss Sharon Died Today

Posted on Dec 2 2014 - 9:21pm by Editor

Todd Tucker

So sad. Tood Tucker’s mom, Miss Sharon, suffered a stroke today and passed away. Todd confirmed the tragic news on Twitter. His entire post captioned:

“Today I lost my partner, my ride or die my best friend! I don’t know what to do? I’m lost! My heart hurts so much! She was a fighter, a warrior for her son! It was me and her against the world! She’s in a better place!! Mom I love you to death! Rest in peace!”

Miss Sharon, was found unconscious by a family friend yesterday and was rushed to a local New York hospital where she fell into a coma and died today.

Todd was in Atlanta at the time of the fall and Kandi Burruss was in Los Angeles on a business trip. Todd flew to New York to be by his mother’s hospital bedside before she passed. 

Bravo introduced us to the spirited, Miss Sharon, when she appeared on the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” and then on Kandi & Todd’s wedding spinoff, “Kandi’s Wedding.” Todd’s father passed when he was very young and he was raised by his mother. Todd and his mom spoke everyday and were very close. We can’t even begin to fathom the the grief that Todd is likely feeling after his mother.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Todd and the rest of his family as they go through this difficult time.

In a series of tweets, fans are offering support to the grieving RHOA star.

  • I can only just imagine the anguish this man and his family are going through. My own father had a stroke about a year and a half ago, and when I woke him up, I just knew something was not right. The most horrifying thing I have ever experienced, so I empathize with Todd in this very troubling situation. I always liked Todd’s mom on the show and I just pray that the family keeps in good spirits. No matter if she is physically here or not, Ms. Sharon will always be with him and his family. RIP.

    • He Bre, I’m in shock. I hope Mama Joyce behaves at the funeral.

      • That’s even if she even goes. She was so mean and downright nasty to this woman, who had done nothing to her.

        • I know and it’s probably best she doesn’t go because Todd’s NY fam will likely beat her ass. Let the old goat stay her behind home.

          • Ok, after she insinuated this woman was a prostitute … it’s best she does not go. Her actions and words are reprehensible and I hope Kandi with this finally wakes up: your mom is a psycho!

          • I hope so. I know Todd must feel all alone now because his mother had his back 100% against the Burruss clan.

          • I hope he doesn’t because a person only breaks you down if you allow them too. I know he wants to be respectful to his wife’s mother, but if she isn’t being respectful to me, then that goes out the window.

          • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

            I agree Breanna. I will give respect but I also ask for respect in return. That’s just common human decency. Something Mama Joyce is quite lacking in!
            I will only tolerate so much. I will privately ask you to stop. If you choose not to be civil? I have no problem calling you out, reading you & then just walkin’ on by!

          • Exactly! I was always taught to respect my elders. I normally bite my tongue when I want to sometimes lash out at those older than me, but out of a lack of respect, I don’t, however, MJ would clearly be the exception to the rule.

          • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

            Exactly Bre. There are lines you do not cross. Mama Joyce crossed them all, backed that bish up & crossed them again!
            Calling my father or especially my mother out their names? Oh fack no! Uh unh! NOT GONNA HAPPEN!
            You deserve the backlash you’re gonna get. I will not hold back any longer.
            Like Kandi says… Don’t START none. Won’t BE none!

          • LMAO. You’re right. The angry black woman in me would’ve sprung up on the dead and read her her Miranda Rights, and if she didn’t take heed, oh well, I’ll just have to take it up with God after I give her all the business lol

          • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

            Oh Lawdy! Don’t think Superman hisself could hold me back!

          • OK LOL

          • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

            Sorry Bre didn’t mean to scare you. I forget sometimes there is no tone! LOL!
            My Mom & my kid. Two things you don’t mess with.

          • Oh, you didn’t scare me. I know where you’re coming from. I can’t even imagine someone disrespecting my mother and me just standing there. And I’m with you: you can talk about me till you turn blue in the face, but my mom and son are off limits!

          • Giiirl, you are PREACHING! On second thought, Joyce should go the funeral. A little reality check beat down will serve the old goat some good!

          • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

            Show the bish from the “A” what the real deal is, in the real life N. Y. C!

          • Marsbars09

            Thank you! That’s the most horrible thing anybody can say about somebody’s mother. And don’t forget MJ had the gall to call Todd’s deceased father a pimp.

          • I honestly believe that MJ was jealous of the background Todd came from. Kandi did grow up without the father in the house, but if you let MJ tell it, her dad was the man from hell, while he said on camera it was the complete opposite.

          • dj j

            that was one thing I couldn’t believe Kandi allowed her mother to say. And now she buys her a bigger house. Rewarding bad behavior.

          • Marsbars09

            I think Kandi and her mother are one in the same.

          • Karma

            Hi Marsbars

            Yep I agree I also think their one of the same.

            Bout your other comment again you’re right I had forgotten that Kandi didn’t say Boo to her mum when Joyce was going off on miss Sharon
            If I recall all said momma that was umcalled for or something like that & in a voice that really didn’t give a fuck.

            TBH I think Todd can do so much better

          • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

            I said the same thing dj. Would Kandi allow Riley to speak like that in her house? So why is it okay for her Mother to do it. It IS Kandi & Todd’s house. Kandi needed to shut that chit down from the get go! Tell her Mother if she doesn’t know how to act around people then she shouldn’t be around people. Just like you would with 3 or 4 year old who was acting a fool in public. Now the 3 or 4 year old may be a little more socially advanced than Mama Joyce. Probably on a whole nother level, but lets just give her the benefit of the doubt.

          • She does the same thing with her spoiled brat child. Reward bad behaviors.

          • Marsbars09

            I just posted a similar comment, Doc.

          • GTMA! 🙂

        • Marsbars09

          Hell, I hope MJ doesn’t go. It would be phony of her to attend as everybody knows she couldn’t stand Sharon.

          • Exactly Mars. MJ is a disgusting old troll, sorry. She didn’t care about Ms. Sharon in life, so don’t go to save face in death.

  • Marsbars09

    I am so sorry to hear about Joyce! I really admired her spunk in standing up against Mama Joyless.
    I am especially sorry for Todd and Kayla. I know Todd and Sharon shared a special bond. I hope Kandi is strong enough to hold Todd and Kayla up during this very difficult time.

    • Hey Marsie. Very tragic news. I can’t imagine the pain Todd’s going through at this time. I’m sure inconsolable. I also wonder what that mean lady is thinking.

      • Marsbars09

        Hi Doc. Whatever Joyless is thinking I sure hope she keeps it to herself. The woman is vile beyond words.

        • I agree. Now is not the time for her BS.

        • Karma

          Yep I was thinking the same thing keep her evil thoughts to herself but I doubt it she’s the Devils child

  • italiano bambino

    How sad
    Hopefully we get some type of remorse from joyce

    • Everyone is saying that. What is evil Joyce going to do/say. I doubt she’ll go to the funeral in NY.

      • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

        I hope not. That’s just beyond two-faced & totally insincere.
        She will def not be welcomed. That’s for chit sure!

  • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

    Oh my! My deepest sympathies & condolences to Todd & Miss Sharon’s family & friends. So very sad. My thoughts & prayers are with you all

  • Norrth

    That woman deserved a better life, IMO, than to have had Bravo and the wicked MJ adding stress and unkindness to her last days. We will still have to see the scenes of Kandi screaming at Todd’s mom in defense of her horror show of a mother who called a woman who raised a child, on her own after becoming a widow, a “prostitute”. We have only seen Miss Sharon love and adore her child and live her life away from Bravo’s prying eyes.

    • Marsbars09

      Hey North. I didn’t know Kandi went off on Sharon in defense of her crazy mama! I think Kandi’s got some screws loose when it comes to her mother. Kandi will never have a normal relationship with a man with her mother’s interference.

    • Hey Norrth. Poignantly stated. I really hope they don’t show Kandi and her clown face waving her little dick fingers in that Miss Sharon’s face. RIP Miss Sharon

  • WestCoastFeed

    How very sad. Prayers to Todd and the family. And fervent hopes that the Bravo editors are hard at work tweaking the films so spare the family any more heartache.

    • Marsbars09

      Hi WCF. How are you doing? I haven’t chatted with you in a while.
      I too hope Bravo treats the memory of Sharon gently, but we’re talking about a network that sensationalized Taylor’s suicide.

      • WestCoastFeed

        Hi, Mars. I know what you are saying. But, I never really believed the Mama Joyce story.

        • Todd’s family issued a statement awhile back on MTO promising to kick MJ’s ass. I think it’s real. MJ or Sharon are not actresses. They would have blown their cover long ago.

          • Marsbars09

            I believe it Doc. I read that on MTO too.

          • Yep! That’s why I said below if Joyce shows up at that funeral. Todd’s project family will break their foots (more than one) off in her ass.

          • WestCoastFeed

            I just can’t accept anyone being as black hearted as Mama Joyce. I will continue to cling to my belief that it is mostly an act.

          • Marsbars09

            Believe it WCF. Believe it.

          • I understand your desire to hold onto that hope and it’s probably best because evil like MJ does exist. I even question her love of Kandi.

          • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

            Sorry West. I think when it comes to Mama Joyce, what you see is what you get. She is way too easy & comfortable being a ratchet old bish. That’s all natural if you ask me.

          • Cinnamon

            I do not understand why people would correlate “black” with a description of something wrong? Also as if using “white” would be a description for something good? We should all know everything white is bad for you. Foods bleached white for brainwashing sugar naturally brown bread naturally brown rice naturally brown etc. Read food label lest you shop at whole foods are natural foods the package label ingredients first word bleached!!!!! And the bleaching from the natural to white is unhealthy also makes product cheaper lol. ignorance and brainwashing better description would be cold-hearted

    • Hey WCF. Todd must be incredibly devastated. His mom was his rock. I’m sure the alleged fight with Joyce (where police were called) will be edited out.

      • Marsbars09

        Let’s hope so Doc. Bravo isn’t the most decent network around.

  • Karma

    What can you say my deepest condolences to Todd he must be hurting so bad I list my dad 4yrs ago and the pain is as raw as when the day he passed

    I wish I had magic words to take his pain away.

    I’m also hope momma Joyce will be nice to Todd as this tragic time but I have a feeling she’ll say oh well we all gonna go one day.

    If momma Joyce is rude dismissive to Todd I’m truly hoping Kandi really puts her in her place momma Joyce is a leech

    • Marsbars09

      Karma, Kandi didn’t chastise her mother for calling Sharon a prostitute and Todd’s father a pimp. I doubt she’s going to do much in reigning Joyless’ venom in.

    • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

      So sorry for your loss Karma. I know the feeling.
      The third week of December will be the 18th anniversary of my Mom’s passing. There are days when it still feels like yesterday.
      As far as my own experience? I wish I could say the pain lessens.I don’t think it does. You just get better at coping with it.

      Again I am so sorry for your loss.

      • Please accept my condolences for you loss ((((Hugs))))))

        • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

          Thank you Honey. I appreciate it. God it still hurts!

      • Shelly Jones

        Sorry to hear. I know its tough. Continued peace and blessings.

        • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

          Thanks you Shelly. I am also very sorry for your loss. Same to you. Peace & blessings to you & your family. All my best.

          • Shelly Jones

            Enjoy the holidays.

        • Karma

          Hi Shelly thank you so much

      • Karma

        Hi hun

        You’re exactly right the pain never goes away but you learn to live with it.

        I’m so sorry for your loss hun may they all be in a better place & at peace

    • Hi Karma. Oh sweetie, I’m very sorry for the loss of your dad. I know the pain is still fresh. ((((Hugs)))) XOXO

      • Karma

        Thanks hun big hugs back & lots of

  • brasserie

    God bless you Miss Sharon. You raised a fine son. Be strong Todd, lean on Kandi. Mama Joyce…no words.

  • Bonita Gee

    In my Ester Roll voice “Damn……Damn………DAMN!!!” She was so lively and feisty. She didn’t take nothing from Mama Joyce and NEVER bit her tongue when he had something to say. ….. And Mama Joyce was so mean to her.
    I hope Mama Joyce is nicer to Todd now. Because Lord knows if Ms. Sharon had lived long enough…. it would have been on and popping between those two at SOME POINT.

    R.I.P. Ms. Sharon

  • Trippinhhard

    Todd and his family have my deepest sympathy. I’m going to miss her on the show, I liked her persona. U. It was a good thing that Todd’s daughter moved to live with them…

  • Get out

    Thoughts and prayers to Todd and his daughter. RIP Miss Sharon.

  • Shelly Jones

    Wow…this is awful. My condolences to Todd and the rest of the family.

  • J Turley

    Todd, my heart goes out to you and I definitely know (experience of loosing my mother) the “unexplainable” grief/loss of loosing the one that will always-unconditionally love you. However, some advice–when it gets too difficult, just simply call on the Lord by saying a simple, “Help me”. I know He is faithful and the Lord loves you and He will never leave you. Be encouraged, for you will get stronger. My prayers are with you.
    Love, a fan

    • Shelly Jones

      Great message. My Grandmother was my world losing her 9 years ago especially hurts around the holidays (her b-day is Dec 23rd) because the fondest memories of her were of us in the kitchen cooking. My mom lives only 2 hours away but I want her closer…she’s not on board yet. I don’t want to miss out on any time with her…you never know what life has in store.

      • I’m sorry for your loss.

        • Shelly Jones


      • Marsbars09

        You never know when it will be the last time you see someone.

      • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

        Very sorry for your loss Shelly. My deepest sympathies.

        • Shelly Jones


    • Marsbars09

      That was very beautiful. 🙂

  • RealitytvJunkie

    My deepest condolences to the Tucker family. This is very sad.

  • Marsbars09

    I just noticed something in Todd’s message. He called his mother his ride and die, his best friend, his rock. Shouldn’t Kandi be all those things to him? I’m especially disturbed that Todd stated he feels lost and doesn’t know what to do without his mother. It doesn’t sound like Todd and Kandi have developed such a profound bond. I wonder if Sharon’s passing will affect Todd and Kandi’s marriage.

    • sandy

      Its obvious u never lost someone close to u like that. Your mom could be all those things and more and you still have all those things with ur wife, only in a different way..

      • Marsbars09

        My real point is Todd shouldn’t feel lost and alone now that he has a wife. That doesn’t sound odd to you?

        • Karma

          I understand what you mean but you’ve seen what Kandi is like when it comes to her mom IMO joyce will always come before Todd

      • Karma

        Hi Sandy

        I totally agree i lost my dad 4yrs ago I felt the same as Todd but that doesn’t take away what i have with my husband I love my dad unconditionally, I can always count on him he & mum are my best friends & they NEVER judge me i have all those things with my hubby but I’ve known & trusted my parents my whole life no matter what they were always there even if I didn’t tell me I’m in i bind they just knew.

        The love you have for you’re parents, children, partner is different just as strong but different

    • Norrth

      I wondered the same thing! I feel so bad for the guy. Miss Sharon was always on his side.

    • I thought the same exact thing. Kandi and her evil mama are just too much for the poor fella to take on alone. Sounds like his mom was the one person he could open up to and she had his back no matter what.

      • Karma

        EXACTLY Todd could always Count on miss Sharon he can’t count on Kandi to back him or show him the respect he deserves when it come to that witch Joyce.

        My deepest condolences to todd and kayla.

        I just hope evil joyce shows some remorse if she can’t Kandi should tell her to stay away . I have a feeling Joyce will say something stupid in front of Todd like oh well she’s gone move on she ain’t coming back agh or some heartless thing. Todd & Kayla certainly don’t need evil Joyce’ heartless comments at this tragic time

    • CoolBreeze14

      Oh it will definitely affect their marriage! I could tell Todd and his mother had such a close relationship, just like Kandi and her mother. The fact that Sharon died just makes Mama Joyce look HORRIBLE right now, unfortunately.

    • Schelita Cottle Starnes McFadd

      That’s because Kandi won’t DEMAND respect for her husband. If she cut all money and communication off, we would see a different Joyce.

  • CoolBreeze14

    I was so shocked to hear about this!!! I happened to be on Twitter browsing and came across The Daily Mail first posting it and I usually take that site with a grain of salt but then the story started making its way to other blogs and I thought, this must be true! I’m so sorry to hear that! I send my condolences to Todd and his family. Watching Mama Sharon and Joyce together on screen now will seem weird. I never thought Sharon was as bad as Joyce. Joyce is just a old hoodrat with no life trying to live through her daughter. Hope all these housewives who sit around constantly trying to degrade others who they are jealous of (cough, Nene, Phaedra, Porsha, etc) realize that life is short!

  • Tre’s Going to Prison

    It’s unfortunate that a voice of reason on RHOA has gently been silenced. And yet a counterpart and counterweight colleague appears to have little compassion for this loss.
    Blessings, support and prayers for Todd and his family at this time of deepest sorrow.

  • Nunya

    So sorry to hear about Sharon. I never thought she was vindicated for the horrible things Kandis mother said about her. It seems strange how people Joyce is not crazy about somehow meet an untimely end…Ahmadinejad way too much stress on her with that “live off her daughter to Which she has been accustomed”, and I am sure it was rubbed in Sharon’s face more than once that Kandi bought her mom a house or two or three…

    I wish they would take Kandi off the show or keep Joyce off camera…she is from the projects buts pretends to have been born wealthy….her boyfriend lives off of her and Kandi and tore Kandis house up. I felt bad for Sharon because there is nothing worse than watching your son spend more time with his wife’s family than your own…and she knew that Joyce did not like her son……. I can’t help but picture Joyce with a smirk on her face when she heard the news…..careful Joyce, Todd has a strong guardian angel on his side now…you better treat him better…jus sayin…
