Kandi Burruss Discusses NeNe Leakes, Kenya Moore, & RHOA Reunions!


Real Housewives of Atlanta Stars NeNe Leakes and Kandi Burruss have never really hit it off and viewers have never gotten a clear answer on why they don’t get along. With Season 5 of RHOA coming to a close, Kandi is talking to The Hollywood Reporter about her relationship with NeNe and more!

“We don’t really have anything to say to each other,” Kandi told The Hollywood Reporter of NeNe. “We really don’t talk to each other outside of things we’re doing for the show. Like I don’t really have a problem with her for real. And I don’t think she really has a problem with me. But every time I turn around she has something smart to say to me so I just give her the same energy she gives me.”

Kandi goes on to say she doesn’t have any issues with any of her co-stars, even Kenya Moore! “I like Kenya. I think she’s funny,” Kandi said. “I think she’s cool. But I don’t like everything she does. … I wouldn’t trust her with any of my great ideas.”

Kandi admits the Reunion is the toughest part of filming a Season. “I’m so stressed and everything is so tense prior to us going to tape the reunion,” Kandi says.  “For me, once the reunion is over, I get to finally breathe. … Everybody’s so tense and barely saying anything to each other because you know you’re about to have these arguments. And it’s crazy.”

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.
