Kandi & Phaedra’s Friendship on the Rocks?
By: Amanda Anderson-Niles
Phaedra Parks’ marriage to Apollo Nida has gone down south, and folks are divided about whether or not Phaedra was in the wrong for not being supportive during his prison stint.
Kandi Burruss’ hubby Todd Tucker feels Phaedra is plain out wrong, but Kandi herself is on the fence.
However, Kandi claims in her recent Bravo blog that Phaedra doesn’t feel she’s been a supportive bestie:
It’s very hard. Phaedra is always assuming I’m siding with Apollo, which isn’t true. Todd and Apollo became pretty good friends, so I would say he takes Apollo’s side a lot. Todd and I have serious debates over their issues. Sometimes I get to the point where I’m like, “Listen Todd, we shouldn’t be arguing about their problems.” It’s crazy really… At the end of the day Phaedra is my girl. I’m always going to be honest with her about what I think. Sometimes we have a difference of opinion, but it’s not because I’m taking anyone’s side against her. Never that! It always sucks when two people that you really like are going through something as crazy as this. I’ve always heard that when a married couple goes through a divorce the people close to them end up going through the divorce with them. I never understood what that meant before, but I do now.
Then there’s Phaedra’s blog which kind of makes people suspect she’s at odds with Kandi:
NeNe and Porsha have been extremely supportive of me and very attentive throughout this entire ordeal, and for that I am extremely grateful. Unfortunately, some of the others decided to use my personal crisis as an opportunity to further their own interests and talk to the media to get press for themselves. The lack of compassion was, at times, shocking.
And if that wasn’t enough, NeNe Leakes also appears to be hinting there’s some turmoil going on with Kandi and Phaedra in her blog:
As far as Phaedra and Apollo, it’s always sad to see a family end no matter who’s right or wrong. I’m glad I can say I was a rock for Phaedra during this time and never judged her. This definitely should be an eye opener for her as well, because it’s always the ones you never thought would support you that do and the ones you thought would be there during rough times that always seem to magically disappear.
While it does seem like the friendship may have suffered somewhat, Phaedra and Kandi have still been hanging out, and Kandi posted photos of their latest outing to her Instagram account a few days ago. So perhaps the besties are still holding on.
