Most of the time it’s extremely annoying when a Real Housewife doesn’t let go of an issue from a previous season, but there are exceptions. For instance, it’s hard for me to understand why so many fans are giving Kandi Burruss shit for “refusing to let it go” when it comes to her animosity toward Porsha Williams.
Porsha spread rumors that Kandi wanted to date rape her for over a year. Those allegations go beyond throwing shade in an on-camera interview during Real Housewives of Atlanta. I do not blame Kandi for wanting nothing to do with Porsha. Nevertheless, they both signed on for Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 10, so they have to see each other.
Kandi explained her thoughts on Porsha in an interview with BuzzFeed News’ AM to DM. Kandi said, “Some people try to come back like ‘Why are you still angry?’ Hello. If somebody made that type of accusation about you, you wouldn’t be messing with them anymore either. That’s the way I look at it.” That is very valid.
Kandi admitted, “It takes years for me to just really look at you the same.” Plus she pointed out, “On top of it, I don’t feel like she’s all the way owned her part in the situation. She said ‘I apologize for saying what somebody said,’ but I just feel like girl, you knew it wasn’t true when you said it.” The only thing Porsha seems sorry about is the public’s perception of her after she put Kandi through so much last year.
Kandi continued, “Then I hear her talk about it and she’s like ‘Kandi is really the one who spread it.’ If you tell somebody one more time that I tried to spread a lie about myself, when you said you first said it in front of a whole camera crew. It wasn’t like it was just the two of us sitting there. So yeah, I don’t like that part of it, but I don’t want Porsha and I to continue on and on about the same thing. I don’t want us to keep arguing about it because it’s done.” Porsha is really doing the most to rewrite this narrative.
Kandi admitted, “I’m not gonna sit here and say I was just gonna forget about it a month after it happened.” Fair enough.
One costar that Kandi is getting along with these days (after years of shade) is NeNe Leakes. Kandi is even playing the same character that NeNe did in the Broadway play Chicago. Kandi revealed, “She was the first person to really kind of know because I wasn’t telling anybody. So she found out first and she was just like ‘Congratulations. You got this.’ She knew before I actually got the part. She knew when I was doing my face-to-face audition. She was just like ‘You got this. You can really sing. Just go in there and do your thing.'” Things have really changed with these two. Kandi emphasized, “We’ve come a long way.”
