Kandi Burruss and Phaedra Parks’ friendship is going through a rough patch, and it’s all because Phaedra doesn’t feel like Kandi was supportive enough amid Apollo’s legal problems.
Kandi admitted to Phaedra earlier in the season that she wasn’t around much because she was going through her own problems with her failed play, but Kandi’s excuse only pushed Phaedra further away.
Now Kandi is accusing Phaedra of overreacting for the sake of getting “sympathy votes.”
She tells E! News:
“I could name you every event, trips we took, all last year up until the season started taping and when the season started taping, we were together every couple days. So at what point did you and I go months without talking? Or are you throwing me under the bus for getting more sympathy votes? What is going on here?!”
She also says the reunion just made things worse:
“I just left the reunion not really knowing where we stood for real. This whole season has put a weird little taste in my mouth about our friendship. When [Phaedra] expressed she was having issues, she never expressed them to me. I had to watch the show later on—months later—after taping to see that she was expressing these feelings to other people…If she was feeling that way, why didn’t she ever say anything to me.”
