Word on the street is that Kandi Burruss can’t take the heat associated with her appearances on Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta and has decided to leave when her contract is up this season. Of course you’ve heard of the drama between she and NeNe Leakes, well I got a chance to chat with Kandu up close and personal during the Madden 10 MVP Premiere Party where she confirmed to me that the “drama” is indeed real.
Kandi feels that NeNe is a faker who plays all of her “friends” off of each other. While most people labeled her castmate, Sheree’ Whitfield as the troublemaker it was NeNe all along. During her brief period on the show, Kandi, being from the “A,” is not one to sit by and be disrespected so she never fails to stand up to NeNe, which in turn causes conflict. I guess all the other castmates kiss “A”zz while Kandi stands her ground. Being that we’ve only seen a few episodes so far, the real drama has yet to be seen on the show.
I also asked Kandi about her relationship with her fiance Ashley “A.J.” Jewel and inquired if they’d set a date. Kandi explained that there was no date and that the show has been a major stress factor in their relationship. Now before you start the rumor that Kandi and AJ are no more, I recently overheard AJ bragging about being engaged to Kandi so I’m assuming they’re still together. Whatever the case, Kandi’s decision to join the housewives cast seems to be causing more drama in her life than ever. I hope that she decides to continue to stand strong and represent for the real hometowners but I can’t blame her if she decides to dip.
My boo Drama Dupri also has a lot to say about the whole Kandi leaving RHOA situation. He’s playing devil’s advocate and supporting Team NeNe while I’m riding for Kandi all day errr day. Peep his hilarious commentary below:
