During last night’s “Real Housewives of Atlanta” Mexican-sweat dinner gathering, Kandi Burruss wasn’t up for the idea of group therapy with the girls, particularly since she was already in therapy with Todd. I mean please, girl, how much talking about feelings can Kandi be expected to do? On her Bravo blog, Kandi spoke out about it.
“I thought it was a waste of my time, but that’s because I didn’t know what Phaedra was saying behind my back. It’s crazy watching the show and hearing Porsha and Phaedra discuss how I’m not a friend and that I’m siding with Apollo because my husband and Apollo are friends, and blah, blah, blah.”
Look at Ms. Porsha, stirring the pot, trying to be relevant. How is telling Phaedra that Kandi isn’t a good friend helping her? Girl, please!
She continued, “At the time that they had that conversation, I didn’t even know Phaedra had a problem with me like that. I have argued with Todd defending Phaedra. I have defended Phaedra when Apollo came around talking B.S. to everyone about their relationship. There have been plenty of times that I have taken up for Phaedra. No one can say that I have taken anybody’s side against her.”
We all know that Kandi probably said two sentences on the topic of defending Phaedra, then swept it under the rug. It’s how she rolls. And the fact that Kandi and Todd are on opposite sides of this, just like when it came to Mama Joyce or the subject of the prenup, I can see why they need help. This is what Kandi had to say when asked if therapy was helpful. “No.”
Not one to mince words, Kandi makes a great point about being Phaedra’s friend.
“Last week at the dinner Phaedra was sitting next to NeNe and Porsha. I was on the other side of the table. They were the closest to her, so they should’ve been the first to grab her. They are her friends too… Right? There is so much more I could say on this subject, but I’m going to let it go.”
Tell us what you think. Does Kandi need to learn to deal instead of pushing things away?
