I was not going to write this tonight but once I mentioned I had more tea, y’all are forcing me to make the post! I love that you are all so interested.
What I found out today is that when Todd was still supportive of Apollo, and Kandi sort of rode the fence between being supportive of Phaedra and Apollo, Phaedra was none too thrilled. Todd was very supportive of Apollo and hung out with him sometimes with Kandi present. Phaedra saw this as a betrayal.
To make things more difficult, and the final straw had to do with, of all things, Phaedra and Apollo’s workout tape. Remember how Kenya was supposed to produce it but backed out because Phaedra was super shady about payment? Well I just found out that Todd Tucker agreed to produce the videos, and worked on them in some way and was never compensated. This caused Kandi to be upset with Phaedra and she ultimately had to pick a side between Todd and Phaedra over the conflict. Finally, Apollo shared with Todd that Phaedra was cheating with “Mr. Chocolate” and this was news to Kandi. Apparently, Phaedra was leading a double life. Add to that the rumors that Phaedra was allegedly self-medicating to cope with her situation causing her to be cranky and difficult to deal with and the two just stopped hanging out.
Toward the end of the season Phaedra disappeared from filming over the whole “Mr. Chocolate” thing and was not staying in contact with Kandi. So these two grew apart in during filming. It will be interesting to see if any of that plays out on camera. It will be obvious by the Bali trip that Kandi moves over to Team Pretty for most of her filming and Phaedra doesn’t show up for a lot of group scenes.
