According to TMZ, Kandi revealed, “She really wasn’t on the show. She was visiting. You know, she was a friend of the show.” This past season Kim wasn’t an official full-time Real Housewife, but she made frequent appearances. Kim also stars on her own Bravo spin-off show, Don’t Be Tardy. Kandi added, “She wasn’t an actual peach holder.”
There have been rumors swirling that the other ladies on the show do not want to film with Kim. Kandi commented on those rumors, “Well nobody for the most part, was really getting along with her. Except for Sheree, I guess. She didn’t really talk or hangout with a lot of people on the show anymore.” She also mentioned that it’s not a big deal to her if Kim doesn’t return anymore to the show. “She hasn’t been here in five years, so it’s like ‘who cares.’ Let’s keep pushing.”
Overall; Kandi agrees with Kim’s assessment of the show being stressful. Kandi said, “The show is stressful anyway. It’s stressful for everybody, not just her.”
How does Kandi deal with the stress herself? “I just deal with it. I mean, it is what it is.” Kandi laughed and said, “Is it ever less stressful? Every season it’s crazy, every season!”
I’m also not surprised that Kim has vowed to never return to RHOA. She has her own Bravo show and she didn’t have a friendship with any of the ladies on RHOA anymore. Plus, her only friend on the show was Sheree Whitfield – and now Sheree won’t be returning. There really isn’t an organic way for Kim to make appearances now. I agree with Kandi, every season of Real Housewives must be stressful – no matter who you are or what city you star in. This reunion was crazy! I’m excited to see what next season brings!
