When girlfriends fight, it can often get nasty. Heated. Personal. But the fight between Phaedra Parks and Kandi Burruss has taken a former friends to a new low.
On the latest episode of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kandi spilled all the tea about Phaedra, her cheating ways with the mysterious Mr. Chocolate, and how she played victim when Apollo was headed to prison—even though she couldn’t wait until he was locked up for good.
In her blog this week, Kandi admits that she was wrong to tell all of Phaedra’s secrets.
“Although I shouldn’t have said some of the things Phaedra and I had talked about in private to anyone (I especially shouldn’t have said it on camera for the world to hear), but at least what I said was true.”
As opposed to Phaedra? Phaedra whispered to Sheree Whitfield and Porsha Williams that Shamea Morton was “close” with Kandi. Like in the biblical sense. Nothing like a three way to bring friends closer together, right? But Kandi said it was all a fabrication dreamed up by Phaedra.
“Phaedra is whispering made-up stories, telling them this untrue Shamea story, and her rationale is “we are close.” Girl, you’re reaching! If that’s the case, Phaedra and I used to be close. So does that mean the same goes for us…”
According to Kandi, this isn’t the first time Phaedra has lied and talked about Kandi behind her back. (Of course Kandi, her employees, and Mama Joyce talk about Phaedra all the time. Just thought it should be noted.)
Anyway, Kandi didn’t take Phaedra’s sexual accusations seriously.
“I was cracking up! First of all, what Phaedra said was some bullsh–, but what she did was just an example of what I was talking about. She’s been doing shady things and saying shady things behind my back for years now.”
What really bothered Kandi was that Porsha sat there and confirmed the sex rumors about her bestie, Shamea. That’s just bad friendship etiquette, spilling all your friend’s dirt on TV.
“…the same goes for us, and then Porsha’s fake, hypocritical ass is going to sit there and co-sign that about her best friend… And right after that Porsha‘s telling me I’m wrong for saying something about my ex friend, but she just co-signed a story Phaedra made up about Shamea…”
Phaedra could have been telling that story in retaliation. Phaedra had learned that Shamea thought she was moving in on Shamea’s former husband, rubbing her ass all over him.
“I remember when Porsha first brought Shamea around us years ago, Shamea said something about Phaedra coming at her ex-husband inappropriately. Phaedra denied it, but Porsha didn’t have a problem with what Shamea said.”
Now Porsha suddenly has a case of convenient amnesia when it comes to Shamea, Mr. Chocolate, and any of Phaedra’s dirty deeds. Kandi said she and Porsha talked about Phaedra’s new man, but on camera, Porsha is playing dumb about the whole mess. (But is she playing, though? This is the woman who thought the Underground Railroad was an actual train.)
“I was just surprised she was acting like she didn’t know why. As I said, she and I have had this conversation before. But now somehow it’s brand new news to her? I should’ve known that she would be fake about it.”
Looks like this season is going to get hot. Will more secrets get spilled? God, I hope so!
So, what’s your take? Did Kandi and Shamea share a “closeness” that involved Kandi’s line of sex toys? Or are they just friends with zero benefits?
