In a new interview with E! Kandi Burruss opens up about season 9’s Real Housewives of Atlanta drama and reveals that she can NEVER be friends with either Porsha Williams or Phaedra Parks ever again.
Kandi says that she hasn’t seen or spoken to Porsha since the reunion.
“I’m still not feeling her either. At the end of the day, she knew it was a lie. She cannot sit there and say she believed it. I’m happy she finally told the truth, I’ll give her that,” she said. “But did you tell the truth because you were tired of people tearing you down, saying you were a liar or did you do it for the right reasons?”
Adding, “As far as Porsha is concerned, she and I will probably end up having to have a conversation about this. I’ll still probably never be close with her again. But Phaedra? We can never talk again.”
In fact, Kandi says the RHOA cast does not work well with Phaedra.
“At the end of the day, all the girls throw shade at each other, but to know that people actually plot, behind the scenes, to plant information on people that’s completely made up, that’s a real problem. It wasn’t even for the sake of television; it was for the sake of tearing me down,” Kandi said. “The fact that she never once let on that she had anything to do with it, clearly, she just wants to tear down my reputation, kill my fan base, hurt my business. It was really just terrible. And then she’s supposed to be friends with Porsha? Then she set her up to be the fall guy? That’s a lot of plotting going on. People don’t want to deal with that.”
However, Kandi admits she’s grateful that the truth about “lesbiangate’ and the drugging rumors was revealed at the reunion no matter how difficult it was.
“It’s a relief to me that my name was cleared, that people no longer have to wonder if I would do something like that,” Kandi said. “You can’t fight a lie. I’m just so glad the truth finally came out because I would never want something like that to be attached to me.”
I think there will be some major divides in the cast for season 10. How can any of the ladies trust Porsha or Phaedra? It still hasn’t been confirmed that Phaedra is leaving RHOA but rumors continue to circulate. Both Phaedra and Porsha should go but Bravo won’t do that. Season 10 will definitely focus on Porsha trying to clear her name and get back in good graces with her co-stars.
