A Friend of RHOA Star Kandi Burruss Throws a Jab at NeNe Leakes

By: Amanda Anderson-Niles

“Real Housewives of Atlanta” stars NeNe Leakes and Kandi Burruss are back on bad terms. In fact, they had a screaming match at the reunion for the current season. So it’s clear that they won’t be back in a good place anytime soon.

Things got rocky after Kandi said that NeNe doesn’t have any real friends outside of Gregg Leakes. She first stated this during a green screen interview.

After NeNe expressed anger about this, Kandi stood by her comments on her YouTube channel. And she once again said that she doesn’t think NeNe has real friends. So she questioned the women NeNe invited to her brunch during filming.

NeNe had some things to say on her own YouTube channel. But it would be NeNe’s comments about feeling like someone was blocking her from getting a spinoff that angered Kandi. She believed NeNe was talking about her. NeNe denied this and even texted Kandi this, but Kandi doesn’t believe her.

So they argued about it at the reunion. After NeNe said that Kandi is number two, her close friend couldn’t help but throw a jab NeNe’s way after Kandi won “The Masked Singer.”

    Carmon needs to mind her business. I understand Kandi pays her bills but the last memorable time we saw her on the show, Mama Joyce was throwing shoes at her. Let Kandi’s grown a-s fight her own TV battles. It’s embarrassing to see a so called wealthy, business mogul and her paid for friends being so excited about her winning a TV contest for stars who have fallen from grace. But okay sis.

        Kandi needs to STFU, she only have problems with Nene when everyone else does, she is do messy and fake…girl please sat down and you better pray you don’t catch COVID-19. Taking pictures with no mask on, stupid move

      I have to agree. We’ve always heard how loaded Kandi is but some of these “moves” she’s been making lately are low hanging fruit. But when you think about what she and Todd said in that therapy session, it all makes sense now.

        Carmon has a long history of not minding her business and coming for anybody who doesn’t kiss Kandi’s butt like she does. I’ll mind my business when she minds hers. How about that?

        Why would I be salty about Kandi winning a contest for celebrities who have fallen from grace? Ask yourself why Kandi needed to do that show in the first place. I think it’s weird how some of you don’t understand everyone isn’t impressed by Kandi. It’s not even about NeNe. Kandi just isn’t goals for me. That’s okay, right?

          In case you haven’t been paying attention, that show is very highly rated. Nothing wrong with competition in your own field. Nene whines forever about not getting respect and being such a star, but to get respect you have to also give it and earn it. Kandi tried toMary help Nene when she had her on her show doing standup. Did you forget how that ended ?

            Love & Hip Hop is highly rated. And yet, it’s still a trashy show for washed up celebrities and people we’ve never heard of. And The Masked Singer is still a competition for celebrities that have fallen from grace. So what point do you think you made? If Kandi is such the top dog like her fans and loved ones say, why is she doing singing competitions at this point in her career? And I’m not sure why y’all keep talking to me about NeNe. My comments have been about Kandi. I don’t care about NeNe.

      And the fact that Kandi financed Carmon’s “real estate” business….. I guess that’s the reason Carmon is defending Kandi like she always has! look how she went after Porsha…if it wasn’t for Kandi where would Carmon be?

    Sit down Carmon. Kandi has more pressing things to worry about than what Nene said to her at the reunion. Her marriage is a mess because her mother treats her husband like trash. And Kandi can’t even spend time with her kids because she’s always working because she has to be able to keep taking care of the 500 “friends” she has even though these “friends” are adults and should be taking care of themselves. That’s not winning in my book. However, I understand we all have different perspectives and we’re allowed to.

    Winning this doesn’t change the fact that Kandi is boring on RHOA. And this is why she picked a fight with NeNe.

    I think NeNe was talking about Lisa Vanderpump because in her YouTube video, she said that none of the girls in Atlanta get the same opportunities as the person she was talking about. Kandi just took a clip and ran with it because she’s feeding into the hype and nonsense of Team Twirl these days.

      I thought she was referring to Kim Zolziak. Kandi doesnt have an ‘on-going’ spin off every year. It’s clear in her demeanor she wasnt referring to Kandi. Nobody’s hating on Kandi, sorry

    I am not surprised that Carmon is standing up for Kandi. When a person strike a nerve people are going to come for you. Still mind the business that pays you when you insert yourself in a feud that has nothing to do with you.

        Girl bye. Carmon is an opportunist doing whatever it takes to keep her unpaid appearances up on RHOA. She’s friends with Kandi because it comes with perks. No adult does this kind of mess in real life past the age of 21. Carmon needs to grow up. She’s embarrassing.

    NeNe and Kandi are very successful women. It’s unfortunate that they don’t get along and constantly feel the need to downplay each other’s success because of silly reality show feuds. And Carmon is always throwing some shade at someone for Kandi. She needs to work on her vibrations. They are too low and she shouldn’t have so much time on her hands to be so petty. This is Kandi’s moment. Not NeNe’s. She should remember that and leave NeNe out of her posts about Kandi’s accomplishment.

      May 21, 2020 at 6:15 pm

      Thank you. You have to be a very negative person to throw shade while celebrating another person’s accomplishment. This was not the time but Carmon does this kind of stuff all the time. She’s a very messy person and needs to get a life. She always coming for somebody Kandi isn’t cool with. Sis needs to grow up.

  8. Yeah I Said It!

        • Yeah I Said It!

          May 21, 2020 at 6:22 pm

          LOL. Kandi is the one who needs people to kiss her butt all the time and even pays her friends to do so. NeNe has never had anyone kiss her butt on RHOA and people have been coming for her since season one so what are you even talking about? NeNe has multiple businesses and income streams. Kandi has actually been on the show longer than her and said they will have to drag her off the show kicking and screaming so does she need the money too?

        • Elizabeth

          May 21, 2020 at 6:29 pm

          Kandi won’t quit or stop working as much as she does because she can’t afford to. I guess you missed the episode when Kandi was crying to Todd about how so many people depend on her financially so she can’t stop working. She keeps having kids she can’t spend time with because so many people’s hands are in her purse. So I don’t know how you Kandi fans come on here with the audacity to talk about who else needs money.

      Tell Kandi’s coated clique to mind their business first ma’am. They are always jumping into situations that have nothing to do with them because Kandi is their meal ticket. NeNe is far from boring which is why the episodes she was on this season were the most watched and the whole reunion was about her. Kandi could leave the show and most people wouldn’t give a d-mn. She’s boring and always has been so she uses her friends and dysfunctional family members and now NeNe to be interesting.

      Kandi: Successful Songwriter; Successful Plawriter; Successful Restaurateur; Successful Spinoffs; Successful Kandi Koated Products; Successful Escape Reunion Tour; Successful Dungeon Tour; Successfully winning the Masked Singer; All around successful business woman. None if her successes can be taken away from her.
      Known to many in the industry for years and a celebrity for many years and wrote multiple songs for A-listers like Beyonce; Competing in the Masked Singer that included A-listers like Chaka Khan; Competing on Celebrity Big Brother’s reality show that included A-listers like Tamar Braxton. Kandi helped Portia get her first break at starring in plays; Kandi helped Nene to open up for an Xscape Tour doing stand-up comedy. She doesn’t have a need to compete or be jealous of anybody on RHOA especially the two she tried to help. She made her coins honestly and respectfully. She really doesn’t need RHOA. It’s becoming too toxic. Black women attacking each other for views and money is extremely classless and tacky. It feeds into the stereotypes that plague black women for “genuine” acting roles. No shade but you can’t compare Nene, who started out as a socialite, to Kandi who started out as a singer/songwriter/celebrity. Kandi’s credits supersede Nene’s and speaks for itself. Try Googling the many A-listers Kandi wrote songs for. Try Googling Nene and how she got started in the industry, what went wrong with her comedy career, friendships with Wendy Williams and Kris Kardashians; her recurring Broadway career… No Need to compare the two there is no match;It’s entertaining to Andy to watch black women cut each other’s throats. That’s sick and sadistic. Fun shade went out the door years ago. If those women weren’t getting paid to put food on their tables I would say boycott the show! BRAVO turn RHOA back into a fun shady show. It’s beginning to pit the ladies on the show and their fans against each other in mean, evil and sometimes threatening ways for No legitimate reason. That’s my story…..Everybody Be safe!

        A Mother’s Love flopped. Kandi hasn’t written a song for an A-Lister since the 90s, and she had help writing those songs. Her solo career flopped. Her spinoffs never made it past one season. The Xscape Tour was not the Kandi tour, it included MULTIPLE artists. The Dungeon Tour worked because it had MULTIPLE artists. And even then the reviews were mixed. Tamar Braxton is not an A lister. The Masked Singer is for artists who haven’t been popping in years. How was that play a big break for Porsha when it failed? Kandi needs RHOA because as she said this season, she has multiple people depending on her financially, so she can’t stop working. How did Kandi make her coins respectfully when she’s acting a fool on the same reality show as the others? Was that sex toy line respectable? How about profiting from rape rumors she was crying about a few seasons ago? That was respectable?

        Let’s be crystal clear. No one is immune from having a jealous spirit. Kandi is a very jealous person. When she was in Xscape, she became jealous that the Scott sisters got the leads in most of the songs. So she started sleeping with JD and got pushed up to a lead singer in the group. She’s the reason the group broke up in the first place because her relationship with JD caused so many problems. She got perks from it and it pissed off the others. Even now, she treats the rest of Xscape like trash. Kandi’s low self-esteem makes her feel as if she must compete with other women all the time. So she keeps doing these TV competition shows to validate her own insecurities and get a check because she can’t afford to sit down. She constantly diminishes the success of the other women on the show and even made light of Kenya’s successful haircare line. Kandi is messy, passive-aggressive, and overrated as a housewife, singer, and businesswoman.

          Correction!…Kandi recently wrote songs for celebrities like Ariana Grande and Ed Sheeran. All I’m saying is that there is enough money for “Any” of those women to make. They don’t need to tear each other down to be successful; even if they don’t like each other.

            Umm, the Ed Shereen song was ripped off from No Scrubs, so Ed credited Kandi along with the rest of the No Scrubs writers to avoid a lawsuit. The Ariana Grande song was a sample from a song from the 90s Kandi helped write. Like I said, Kandi hasn’t written a hit for an A lister in two decades. No A lister is lined up at Kandi’s door for a song these days. So she has no choice but to make a big deal out of getting credited for samples. And the hits Kandi wrote were always in collaboration with other writers. There’s nothing to hate on. I don’t want Kandi’s life.

      Paying for friendships isn’t a good look. And no one is more aggravating and useless on RHOA than Eva. Kandi is a close second. She brings absolutely nothing to RHOA either. They need to bring Phaedra back. Say what you want about NeNe, but those ratings were doo doo this season until she was on the episodes. This NeNe hate is fake. Just saying.

    For real, we should be celebrating all of their successes whether big or small. Women are always trying to downplay another woman’s accomplishments & it’s sad because we just be happy for one another. All them ladies are out there getting their paper. At least they’re not on their backs. I say congrats to all of them. And to all of you who are doing your thing congrats to you too.
