Last night on Watch What Happens Live, Nene Leakes gave her take on the beef between Real Housewives of Atlanta castmates, Kandi Burruss and Phaedra Parks.
“I think Kandi had been holding back so long and keeping secrets. For me, I know them in a different way… I got your back, and I’m loyal to you until you’re not loyal to me. You’re not going to just keep shooting at me and not think I’m never going to shoot at you. So, I’m okay if Kandi wants to blow her head off every now and then.”
According to Nene, Kandi has been biting her tongue for years, keeping all of Phaedra’s business close to the vest. The two were tight, so Kandi knows where the bodies are buried, so to speak. But when Phaedra went after Kandi’s husband, Todd, last season, it was too much. Kandi drew the line, and started shooting back.
Kandi took to Instagram and cosigned Nene’s comments. She stated that she felt dragged by Phaedra, both on and off camera. She’d reached her boiling point, and although she’s a loyal friend, Phaedra wasn’t.
Furthermore, Phaedra didn’t respect the “girl code” that says once your friendship is over, you don’t talk about each other. Phaedra continued to “blast the hell” out of Kandi all the time.
Kandi noted that while we fans don’t get to see everything that happens behind the scenes, Nene has been privy to all the tea. So she knows what she’s talking about. Kandi must appreciate Nene having her back on this.
I had to post this because @neneleakes just explained perfectly what I've felt. For those who wonder why I've reacted the way I have reacted this season. Im extremely loyal but for the last couple years I've kept my mouth closed while I was getting dragged on & off camera. So this year I was just done. At the end of the day we should respect girl codes but that means when the friendship is done you don't say anything about each other. Not just I don't say anything about you while you blast the hell out of me all the time. Please remember you guys only get bits & pieces of what you get to see on the show, Nene has been privy to info that y'all don't know so her perspective is a lot more clear on this situation. Isn't it funny to hear Nene & I on the same page. #JesusFixedIt 😉
What do you think? Should Kandi have continued to hold it in or was she right to blast back at Phaedra?
