The Real Housewives of Atlanta goes wild tonight, with an adventurous camping trip drawing the ladies into an inescapable circle. In a preview clip for tonight’s episode, Marlo Hampton stands center stage, confronting a scandalous rumor head on when she asks Kandi Burruss if she dips in the lady pond.
“I have a question I’m going to ask you Kandi. I just want to know… Marlo begins. “Kandi…are you a lesbian?”
“Cause I’ve heard that, and someone at this table has been talking behind her back, saying she’s a lesbian in the closet,” Marlo continues, amid protests from the other ladies.
The ladies all demand answers, but viewers know that Phaedra Parks dished a rumor in a previous episode, pointing to an alleged sexual relationship between Kandi and Shamea Morton.
Kandi denied the lesbian rumor in her blog, pointing to Phaedra’s alleged pattern of spreading “made-up stories.”
“[Phaedra has] been doing shady things and saying shady things behind my back for years now. That is why I really don’t mess with her like that. 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,” Kandi explained. “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.”
Meanwhile Kandi has been turning the shady tea into cash by promoting her sex toys hard — evidently the silver lining in the reality cloud. Kandi combined business with pleasure last weekend, promoting the racy film, Fifty Shades Darker, while hawking her sex toy line.
Do you believe the lesbian rumor really bothers Kandi — or is it all about cashing in on the Bravo dirt?
Watch the dramatic preview above and catch the fireworks on tonight’s episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, tonight at 8:00 p.m. ET on Bravo.
