Snake in the grass?
Kandi Burruss isn’t buying anything Phaedra Parks is selling. The multi-talented entrepreneur is calling out her former best friend Phaedra and former employee Johnnie Winston for their shady actions on last Sunday’s episode of the Real Housewives of Atlanta.
In her Bravo blog, Kandi calls Phaedra a snake while claiming that Phaedra and Johnnie just want revenge and her money.
Kandi explains that wasn’t surprised Kandi and Johnnie teamed up to try and take her down.
“Not really. She just wanted to do the snake move of having her friend represent him so that she can pretend she doesn’t have anything to do with it. Watching that whole meeting was a mess to me,” Kandi reveals.
Going on to make it clear that Johnnie never gave her the ideas for her restaurant or her play.
“Johnnie did not give me the idea to do the Old Lady Gang restaurant. Todd had tried to buy a restaurant facility on two separate occasions years ago, but I told him to wait because I didn’t think it was the right time. The theme of our restaurant is based around my mom and aunts. Not sure how Johnnie is saying we took this from him? He also said that we took the theme for our play from him. That is false. My play A Mother’s Love is about my life that you saw on the show a few seasons ago when my mom and Todd weren’t getting along. I wrote every single song, and I mapped out the story with a professional writer by the name of Chiquita Lockley, whom I paid to help me bring my real life drama to the stage,” Kandi clarifies.
To wrap things up, Kandi reveals that she thinks Phaedra and Johnnie’s actions are quite “sad” but says they won’t bring her down.
“I had never even had an argument with Johnnie prior to this season. It’s sad to see two people that I once was cool with sit there and plot to try and figure out a way to get money out of me. Well, one wants money, and the other wants revenge I guess. Oh well! Y’all go ahead and hate while I be great!”
I thought Phaedra’s actions were so low. It’s becoming more clear that Phaedra deserves her “Shady Phaedra” nickname. Kandi works her ass off and for Phaedra to try and help someone take credit or money from her is bullshit. If someone did that to Phaedra, she would flip out. Phaedra is no friend to Kandi or anyone else – she’s nothing but fake in my eyes.
