Kandi’s blog this week I one of the most interesting ones ever, at least to me. Remember just last month when we saw Phaedra show up at Kandi’s house for the Superbowl? We thought that was a sign they were reconciling. Kandi made a point of saying “even Phaedra” showed up. This was after much speculation that they were not close anymore. Well the big news is, Kandi didn’t really even know there was an issue with Phaedra until the “cancelling session.” That is if it ever even gets brought up during next week’s scripted session with the TV therapist before Nene storms off the set. Kandi was completely oblivious to Phaedra running around talking trash about her to Nene and Porsha.
Now that is some interesting tea. But that is not all.
Kandi’s Bravo Blog is in the Q & A format again this month. I actually prefer this format for her because it has her answer things she would probably not address in a freestyle format. Like this first question.
Bravotv.com: Did you find the marriage counseling helpful?
Kandi Burruss: No.
Um, care to expand on that answer, Kandi? Because this just reinforces what we all have been thinking about your relationship with Todd being less than blissful. I mean the expected storyline for you two newlyweds is lots of intimacy and trying to make babies. Plus family fun with the girls. Speaking of the girls we haven’t seen either girl lately. Did Todd’s daughter move out? Did you buy Riley a new house because she didn’t like her luxury suite in your house anymore?
Bravotv.com: Were you surprised to receive the award from Peter?
KB: I was very surprised! Todd and I wanted to be there to support Peter, but I had no idea that he would be honoring me. I was caught off guard.
Well, you were the only actual celebrity at the event. You unknowingly legitimized one of Peter’s wacky “music events.” You might oughta feel used rather than honored.
Bravotv.com: Why did you break down with your mom?
KB: Mom and I had been arguing a lot at that time, and I just felt that she never accepted any responsibility for being wrong. She always finds a way to make me the bad guy. When she said I’ve changed and that I’m not there for my family, I was too through! I had just bought a car for a family member that week, another family member was living with me, and I was and still am helping to take care of another elderly family member. To say I don’t care about my family was an insult. I love them all dearly, and for her to feel that I don’t care about them as much just because I’m married now hurts me.
Was the car for Todd’s kid? If so she would not count that and you know it. Basically, your mama sees you helping anyone that is not her as money out of her pocket. When she says you are not there for your family, she means you are not there for her.
Bravotv.com: What did you think of NeNe’s idea to bring everyone to a group counseling session?
KB: I thought it was a waste of my time, but that’s because I didn’t know what Phaedra was saying behind my back. It’s crazy watching the show and hearing Porsha and Phaedra discuss how I’m not a friend and that I’m siding with Apollo because my husband and Apollo are friends, and blah, blah, blah. At the time that they had that conversation, I didn’t even know Phaedra had a problem with me like that. I have argued with Todd defending Phaedra. I have defended Phaedra when Apollo came around talking B.S. to everyone about their relationship. There have been plenty of times that I have taken up for Phaedra. No one can say that I have taken anybody’s side against her. Last week at the dinner Phaedra was sitting next to NeNe and Porsha. I was on the other side of the table. They were the closest to her, so they should’ve been the first to grab her. They are her friends too… Right? There is so much more I could say on this subject, but I’m going to let it go.
I don’t think you are going to let it go until the reunion. This is why they make sure you see all the shows before the reunion, so you can see your ride or die friend stabbing you in the back with two people she has never liked. You have known Phaedra long enough to not be surprised by this. She is one of the most duplicitous people ever to be on a housewives franchise. You can’t possibly be that shocked. Right?
