Kandi Burruss does not want Phaedra Parks to ever return to The Real Housewives of Atlanta, even though Nene Leakes is all for it. Kandi told Hollywood Life if Phaedra ever returns, she would be done with the RHOA and would leave! Kandi’s been on the show for a whopping nine seasons, but she would walk away if Phaedra returned to the cast. Kandi said, “There’s only been like one year that I had to kind of like question if [the show] is really worth it. Obviously it was that year when the whole craziness with Phaedra happened, you know. So that was the only year that I kind of questioned it, because I was like, okay, this is too much.”
Kandi said it went too far and the “attacking” of her “character” and “making up stuff” about her was too much. Kandi explained, “But outside of that, I’ve been cool. I feel like it’s been a great platform for people to learn more about my businesses and different things that I’ve wanted to do, to work on. I’ve built up so many fans from the show that support all the things that I’m doing, so I love it for that.”
Kandi also revealed that she hasn’t heard from Phaedra since the show. Kandi said, “I just think it’s kind of crazy when you don’t even realize you’re in a battle with a person to the point where they would make up stuff about you. I wouldn’t even ever known she was doing that, had Porsha not told it at the reunion.” Kandi said she “wouldn’t be dealing with it” if Phaedra were to return, but she admitted she doesn’t get to choose the cast of the show. However; if Phaedra returns that would be her exit.
Kandi and Phaedra used to be friends and had been on the show together for six seasons. Their friendship dissolved when Kandi found out at the reunion that Phaedra had told Porsha that Kandi and her husband Todd Tucker had allegedly drugged and attempted to take advantage of Porsha. It was an explosive reunion. Kandi was understandably upset and denied those accusations. Phaedra ended up apologizing to Kandi, but their friendship was over and hasn’t been repaired.
There is always drama on the RHOA! I’m excited for the reunion to air this month!
Thoughts on this all? Do you want Phaedra to return to the show? Do you think Kandi would really leave? What do you want to see at the reunion? Sound off below!
