It’s hard to remember that Kim Zolciak and Kandi Burruss used to make music together . Think back to the early days of Real Housewives of Atlanta. That music includes a little tune called “Tardy for the Party.” That song was catchy enough to inspire the name of the first RHOA spin-off: Don’t Be Tardy. That was before stolen baby names. And, of course, it was before a lawsuit for unpaid compensation came between them.
Kandi was horrified when that episode aired. She took to her Bravo blog and social media to try and set the record straight. She posted, “I have NEVER wanted you or your box….Lying ass bitch.” Kim tweeted back, “You and your husband are full on swingers f*cking all kinds of girls and can NEVER admit it.”
Kim tried to change her tune when Kandi confronted her at the RHOA Season 10 reunion. That was difficult to do after Bravo produced the receipts and rolled the tape! Paging accountability coach Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave.
Kim explained, I think I was really shocked by the way she treated me at the reunion. We’re both Tauruses,” which is an astrological coincidence Kim offered as proof that she “understands” Kandi.
Maybe she doesn’t. In the next breath, Kim continued, “I couldn’t understand her at the reunion. So, I just feel like at this point, you know, no, I’m like no. I’m just at the point where I’ve washed my hands of her and we’re good.” Host Andy Cohen said that was “a bummer,” because you two had a real friendship.”
Kim said, “We really did.” New daddy Andy pointed out how their kids used to be close and Kim agreed, adding, “we spent Christmases together, but I was so shocked by her behavior at the reunion that I was like flabbergasted.” At which point, Brielle Biermann who was bartending that evening said, “I kind of think like that’s one of the things that hurt you most when you came home that night.”
Pretty much everyone was against Kim that day because of all the drama Kim brought to Season 10. Who would have thought that Kandi not standing up for Kim would the most upsetting part of that day? They weren’t even on good terms at the time. What did Kim expect?
