The Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion aired a while ago, but I am still reeling from THE LIES (said in a Kandi Burruss voice) that came undone. I’m sure Kandi feels somewhat vindicated after Phaedra Parks (reluctantly) admitted that she lied to Porsha Williams about Kandi’s attempt to drug and rape Porsha, but it was still a tough year. In fact, Kandi almost quit the show.
I have no idea what “almost quitting” means. I feel like pretty much every longtime housewife “speaks out” about “considering leaving” the show at some point. I don’t know if it’s a play for attention, an increased salary, or a genuine revelation, but it’s just all too common. Nevertheless, this Kandi situation is one of the most (if not the most) extreme story lines in Real Housewives history. So I don’t blame her for wanting to walk out. It’s not like she needs the money.

In an interview with Us Weekly, Kandi admitted, “During season 9, I was feeling like I might want to leave because there was so much hate from fans online and I was having trouble because, how do you defend yourself from a lie?”
Kandi continued, “I’ve never had drama like that that lasted the whole season. It was very sh–ty.” After such a long time on the show, this was the first time that the whole season focused on Kandi. That had to be stressful. Plus, I feel like pretty much everyone with a soul is on #TeamKandi after those reunion episodes aired.
Kandi said, “But now I’m extremely happy that people were able to see the truth. Sometimes I thought people would never know the truth and it would have been a stain on me forever.” That accusation went beyond the typical gossip and drama that goes down on these shows. Phaedra and her sidekick Porsha definitely crossed the line with this one. So it’s really not at all surprising that the article mentions that Kandi hasn’t spoken to Frick or Frack since the reunion was filmed.
