The “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star tells TooFab: “Once you show me who you are, I take notice and I’m cool on you.”
“Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Kandi Burruss has no more time for Porsha Williams or Phaedra Parks.
“I personally feel like we’ll never be friends again,” Burruss told TooFab Tuesday while discussing her relationship with Porsha.
“I can be cordial with her because we’re in the same circle. I have to — to a certain extent — be cordial because I’m not gonna make my own self uncomfortable just because we’re both in the same place at the same time, but I don’t want to be friends. Once you show me who you are, I take notice and I’m cool on you.”
During Season 9’s explosive finale, Kandi confronted Phaedra about her role in spreading a vicious rape rumor she had been combating all season long.
The rumor was that she and her husband, Todd Tucker, said they wanted to drug Porsha to take advantage of her. Porsha revealed during the reunion that she first heard about the rumor from Phaedra, who claimed she heard it from Kandi firsthand.
Needless to say, the situation hit the fan, and Phaedra was subsequently fired from the Bravo reality show.
Kandi told TooFab that she and Porsha “never had an in-depth talk” about the false allegations or Phaedra’s firing.
“She said she’s apologized, but my thing is she never really owns it,” Kandi said. “It was always, ‘Oh, Phaedra said…
Phaedra told me and I believe…’ Girl, bye. You didn’t believe it. You just were repeating it, but it’s OK. I don’t even want to keep going back and forth about the situation. I’m just done, basically, and I just want to keep moving and look on to bigger and better things.
She’s not a very important part of my life other than what I deal with on the show.”
Kandi added that she has “absolutely not” spoken to Phaedra since the debacle.
“The Real Housewives of Atlanta” airs Sundays on Bravo.
