On Kandi’s Bravo Blog this week, the Real Housewife of Atlanta addresses her comments about Nene always having a motive for her friendships. She gives one example of Nene initially being furious that Marlo was coming on the show because she felt it was a set-up to cause drama between the two over the whole Charles Grant situation. But Nene opted to befriend Marlo simply for the purpose of shutting her up. Nene and Kandi have never really gotten off on the right foot but Kandi has always made an effort to shoot with Nene when no one else but Cynthia would. Like when she was forced to go to Miami with her. Kandi says the Nene freaks are harassing her on twitter. Quelle surprise.
But the most interesting part of her blog was her putting the entire Tardy for the Party and The Ring Didn’t Mean a Thing debacle on paper. Click through for what should be the final word on the subject.
Kandi says, “OK let’s move on to Kim. I haven’t talked to or seen Kim at all since what you saw on last night’s episode. Kim and I have had a shaky relationship ever since the whole Tardy for the Party drama. People always ask, “Why do you never go hard on Kim like you do with NeNe?” Well Kim and I started off on the right foot. We became close quickly. Our daughters had become good friends, and we were taking multiple trips together and had lots of fun. I have made a vow to myself that I will never fall out with friends/family about money.”
“So when she first came to me and said her attorney felt she didn’t have to split the royalties with Don Vito (the producer) and me, I was caught off guard. We never signed an agreement giving her rights to release the song. We could have easily had the song pulled, but I was like whatever at the time. I didn’t want to fall out about money. The problem was this became the topic of every discussion. So of course it became a problem.”
“Then when she asked me to do the next song, Ring Didn’t Mean a Thing, I did it, but I was going to charge her up front instead of just agreeing to split whatever came from sales, which is what we said we were going to do the first time. She didn’t want to pay up front. You may get over once, but never twice. So I would never allow her to release the song. That’s why you never heard any more about it. That for me made the relationship more awkward. So the communication became less and less.”
