Fake friendship? Check.
Season 5 has brought a bevy of friendship issues for Kary Brittingham, including a major fallout with longtime pal D’Andra Simmons.
In a new interview with Entertainment Tonight, Kary claims that she believes she and D’Andra no longer have a genuine friendship. She notes that she’s fine with having a “superficial friendship” if that’s what D’Andra wants.
“I hope we can really move past that and hopefully be good friends, but two people have to want it, have to work at it,” she says. “Friendships and close relationships are not easy.”
D’Andra has previously said that Kary expects too much from her when it comes to their friendship.
“She’s told that to me before,” Kary admits. “I’m like, OK, then it makes sense. I don’t want to feel like you have to call me; you should want to call me. If you have to put a reminder in your phone to call me, that means you have no interest in talking to me.”
“It doesn’t matter, the phone call,” she notes. “It matters the engagement and the phone call, and … it feels like, OK, check. I called Kary. Check. I ask her, how are you doing? How’s your family doing? Check. That’s not it; it’s not a genuine, heartfelt friendship. I don’t care if you call me once — I mean, I have friends that I talk to once a year, and it felt like we just saw each other yesterday. It’s the commitment to the friendship.”
