Well, here is a really good example about why Kandi and Porsha were consulted by Andy regarding diversity on Bravo. Someone sent me this tone deaf Tweet of Nene Leakes. Fortunately, Nene has blocked me so I don’t have to see all the insanity. This right here is why people are not dying for Nene’s opinions on racial issues. Though, the suits did include her on a conference call on the subject recently. Nene is so furious that Andy called Kandi instead of her, that she has been retweeting Tweets from others calling for Andy Cohen to be fired. That is not going to happen. Andy isn’t going anywhere, and sadly neither is Nene Leakes.
On the other hand, Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker have jumped into action. Kandi is raising money to increase black representation in government. And Todd is working to get a million black men to vote in November. My hubby @todd167 & his friends @anthonymackie @omarjdorsey @thekellonakeem & @quinnsmusic have started a voting initiative to get a million men to vote before the election on November 3rd. Please help spread the word & encourage any men that you know who haven’t registered yet! Their website is IAmAMan. VOTE! They also shared photos of them voting in the recent primary.
I think it is pretty obvious why Andy respects Kandi’s opinion so much.
