Kandi Burruss and Phaedra Parks are two of the more even-tempered, lower-maintenance cast members of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta. However, the former close friends’ shot up to the top of the RHOA drama list after Parks accused Burruss of being a delinquent, uncaring friend.
Burruss, who appeared on “Watch What Happens Live” with Vivica A. Fox following the Season 8 opener of RHOA, was asked if Parks doesn’t trust her because she’s siding with her husband, Todd Tucker, and Parks’ imprisoned husband, Apollo Nida, when it comes to Parks and Nida’s nasty breakup.
“I don’t really feel a way,” she said. “Todd and Apollo are friends, that’s true indeed, but I feel like it has made Phaedra assume that I’m taking sides just because Todd is siding with Apollo. Well, not necessarily that he’s siding with Apollo, but that he’s friends with Apollo.”
Burruss went on to explain that she’s being found guilty by Parks just by association.
“I feel like in mind, she feels I’m against her. And it’s only been one thing that I spoke on that was disagreeable. But other than that, I don’t really side with Apollo on anything,” Burruss explained.
Burruss’ and Parks’ quandary was completely overshadowed on the show by the national uproar created when fellow “WWHL” guest Vivica Fox openly questioned former boyfriend 50 Cent’s sexuality and even called him a “booty snatcher,” which incited furious return shots by both Fifty and Soulja Boy at Fox.
