Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion - Kandi

I don’t know why I’m taking it personally, but the breakdown of Kandi Burruss’ and Phaedra Parks’ friendship feels like the end of an era in some sort of cosmic way! The real tragedy is how much these two Real Housewives of Atlanta stars still care about each other, but can’t seem to find common ground. And how a felon man ultimately came between them (thanks, Apollo!). 

Kandi admits that she gets emotional when discussing her disintegrating friendship with Phaedra, as she did on part one of the RHOA reunion. “I get frustrated having these conversations in front of everyone. I do care about our friendship. That’s why I’m emotional about it. And because I care, I still won’t say certain things that would make her look bad. Even though I feel like I’ve been made to look like the bad guy.”

Kandi continues in her blog, “I’m trying not to be that ‘mad day’ person that I’ve talked about in the past, meaning a person who was once your friend that starts telling your secrets when they’re mad. I don’t like when other people do that, so I don’t want to be like that. The whole thing is just frustrating knowing that there is only so much I can say to defend myself publicly.”

Moving on to her Kandi Koated Klique, Kandi defends Don Juan’s right to insert himself into everyone’s drama – whenever and wherever he feels like it! She claims both Phaedra and Porsha Williams were too hard on Don Juan and Carmon at the reunion.

“I feel like they are full of sh– about Don Juan and Carmon. When we’re on TV and they say something you don’t like, you want to treat them like the help or say they’re just my employees. But when we’ve all hung out numerous times, they were all good. That would be like me treating Porsha’s sister like the help since she’s her assistant.”

“No, I’m not blood related to Don and Carmon,” adds Kandi, “but we are like family and we have each other’s back like family as well. So if somebody is in front of my video release party telling lies about my husband or talking sh– about the video, then I would expect the people who care about me would speak up and check them. Which is what happened, and I do not have a problem with it.”

It’s interesting that Don Juan (and Carmon, to a lesser degree) were in Kandi’s ear the entire time she was attempting to mend fences with Phaedra this season. They’ve got a lot more influence than meets the eye. Hey – maybe we have the CLUE answer at last! It was Don Juan in the Garage with the Apollo Contraband. Mystery solved!
