Kandi Burruss and former RHOA star Lisa Wu appeared on Watch What Happens Live Sunday night. Kandi and LisaÂ chatted with Andy Cohen, dished on the new season, the drama and Kandi answered viewer questions about Mama Joyce.
“She’s funny, she’s quick on her feet but be careful because she will read your assâ€¦ She reads like a queen!” Kandi says, when asked what she thinks of the newest addition to the RHOA cast, Claudia Jordan.
Andy Cohen played a clip of what’s going on between Phaedra Parks and her estranged husband Apollo Nida. He asked Burruss to comment about what has been going on between them.
“That cut deep,” Kandi said of Apollo saying he despised Phaedra.
Andy asked Kandi whether she believes Phaedra owes Kenya and apology after Apollo’s confession last week.
“It’s not like Phaedra was the one who actually came up with the lie,” Kandi said. “I think Phaedra’s whole issue with Kenya goes way past that situation. I don’t know if she will ever get an apology but for myself, I felt bad. I’ve had somebody that lied on me before and said that they ‘hooked up’ with me and I know good and well it never happened. Once somebody puts that out there about you it’s hard to take it back. So, I felt bad for Kenya.”
As usual, viewers had a lot of questions for Kandi about her controversial mom, Joyce Jones.
The first caller asked Kandi if the 7-bedroom home she bought her mom was too extravagant for someone that claims Kandi never gives her anything.
“Well, I’m glad you notice that I do even though [she said] I didn’t at the reunion,” Kandi says. “My mother really wanted a ranch-style house. I didn’t know how hard it was to find homes that are ranch. I think it’s like five bedrooms on the main level and in the basement there’s two. The point isâ€¦ the house was still in the budget, well not really, but at least it was close by and was a ranch-style house.”
Andy explained that a lot of people think it’s disrespectful to Todd to move her mother so close because Joyce has treated Todd the way she has.
Kandi responded, “My mother is older, so the older they are the closer you need to be so you can check on them more often.”
Andy also asks Kandi what her response is to viewers who think Joyce is disrespectful to Kandi even though she still continues to do things like buy her a house.
“My response is that I don’t really have to explain to anybody that I want to treat my mother well,” Kandi said. “I feel like she’s my motherâ€¦ and even though she does some things that get on my nerves, don’t a lot of parents get on their kid’s nerves?”
Cohen revealed that a lot of viewers noticed that Mama Joyce appeared “slurry” during last week’s episode and asked if she is doing okay.
“My mother was not slurry!” Kandi said. “My mother is not a drinker. She’s like me, I’ve never been drunk in my life. I don’t know if she been drunk ever in her younger years. I’ve never heard of her being tipsy or drunk or anything.”
