I haven’t found this season of Real Housewives of Atlanta particularly interesting yet. But we are only a few episodes in so I’m hoping there is better drama to come. Arguing over Kenya Moore’s glam and disinviting Drew Sidora to a cooking party is hardly what I consider must-see TV. But off-screen? The gloves are clearly off.
On a recent episode of RHOA, Marlo Hampton and Sheree Whitfield came for Kandi Burruss’ love life prior to the show. Marlo called her a “ho” who “f–ked everybody for free” before marrying husband Todd Tucker. Now Kandi is responding to the “vile” claims made against her.
As reported by Page Six, Kandi appeared on an episode Access Hollywood’s Housewives Nightcap to discuss. Kandi started, “[Marlo] started bringing up my past and tried to figure out people that I’ve dated or whatever she had to say about me … and I’m like, ‘Um ma’am, let’s not.’ Let’s not do that. Because some of the things the ladies were saying, I could clearly go all the way in to say about them, okay? But we just going to leave it at that.”
She went on to say that she wasn’t surprised at Marlo’s statements. But what really caught her off guard was Sheree agreeing with Marlo. Said Kandi, “I was more surprised by Sheree co-signing everything Marlo was saying, I expect that from Marlo but Sheree?” She added, “I was done when I saw that. I was totally shocked because I haven’t even done anything to Sheree. I don’t even understand where this energy is coming from. It just totally threw me off.”
As for Marlo saying Kandi “dates beneath her tax bracket” and Sheree “egging her on and co-signing,” Kandi clapped back. She noted, “Uh, Sheree, you just got dissed by a man that just got out of prison, honey. Clearly if that’s not below your tax bracket. He ain’t paying taxes in years! So I’m confused. How are you amen-ing what she’s saying in your situation? I’m confused. It’s giving tired and played.”
Kandi continued of Sheree, “She’s totally played, all the way around, in all parts of her life. So, girl, why are you over here joining forces with somebody else who ain’t got nothing going on? The two played, lame ladies of the group (haha), y’all, joining forces against me? Oh ok, great.”
It looks like Kandi might end up getting the last word. After the episode aired, she tweeted, “Keep watching this season because the lady with the heavy tongue keeps my name in her mouth!” Her followers speculated that the rumors were made up simply for entertainment value on the show. To which Kandi responded, “Keep watching because the lady with the heavy tongue is keeping everybody storyline juicy and paychecks coming in!”
TELL US – DO YOU THINK MARLO WAS WRONG FOR CALLING KANDI A HO? WHY WOULD SHEREE CO-SIGN WHEN SHE IS COOL WITH KANDI? DO YOU THINK MARLO MADE IT UP JUST TO START DRAMA? ARE YOU TEAM KANDI OR TEAM MARLO/SHEREE?
