Kandi Burruss Says RHOA Is Just As Good Without NeNe Leakes


Some fans were shocked when veteran RHOA star NeNe Leakes left the show for good, but Kandi Burruss says the series is just as exciting and drama-filled without Leakes.

“You know, it’s not much different. Before, it was a lot of drama, and now, it’s a lot of drama. And the show is still going to be awesome,” she told E! News. “Don’t get me wrong, I love NeNe and I love her personality. Well, I mean, you know we bump heads, but I think she was good with the crew. But this year, the crew is still just as crazy, and there’s still just as much story going on.”

As we previously reported, Porsha Williams makes wild allegations this year about Kandi’s sex life including that she’s a lesbian, proposed a threesome with her and her husband Todd Tucker and has sex dungeons in her home. But Kandi says these accusations are simply not true.

“I’m sure people will watch that and be like, ‘Oh my god, Kandi did this. Oh my god.’ Whatever,” she said. “And so it becomes about that she’s just a straight liar, and that’s what I can’t get past with her. It’s like, if you make stuff up for people to feel a certain way about somebody…It’s how I always say that certain girls on the show do things for the sake of the fans to get you to think they’re a certain way, but behind camera, they’re a totally different way. This is a perfect example of that.”

Burruss also tells fans not to hold their breaths for a reconciliation between her and Phaedra Parks. “We’re shaky. For moments, we try to be cool, but I always say we’re just cordial. We’re cool enough to be able to be adult enough to be around—because we have mutual friends—to be around everybody without going crazy. And that’s it,” she admitted. “We’ve had some negative moments in this season, as well, and we try to be cordial. And that’s it.”
