Kandi Hates When She Loses Her Cool With Block


Kandi Burruss is opening up about her argument with her daughter’s father Block in this week’s episode of RHOA. She reveals to Bravo what made her lose her cool with Spencer and also shares her thoughts about Kenya comparing Sheree’s wig to Mama Joyce’s.

Bravotv.com: You’re mom said people take advantage of you because you’re “sweet.” Do you think that’s true?
Kandi Burruss:
Well, there have definitely been a lot of situations that I’ve let slide because I didn’t want to deal with the drama. My mom doesn’t like to let anything slide, so it bothers her when I do that. Especially when it comes to money.

Bravotv.com: What was going through your mind during Kenya and Sheree’s argument?
I was hearing the Charlie Brown noise: “Whomp, whomp, whomp, whomp…” Until Kenya mentioned my mom’s name.

Bravotv.com: What did you think when Kenya made the comment about Sheree having a “Momma Joyce wig”?
: I immediately got pissed! Why did she have to go putting my mom in their argument? I felt it was unnecessary.

Bravotv.com: What pushed you over the edge during the call with Block?
When he said he wasn’t going to chase Riley to talk to her, he pissed me off. Block has gone Riley’s whole life not being there as a father. Now he wants to come out of the blue to “co-parent” and he just expects her to welcome him with open arms? He’s arrogant. If he truly wanted a relationship with Riley, then he needs to make her feel like he really wants to be there. Even if he calls her 100 times and she doesn’t call him back, he needs to keep trying. Years of neglect take more than a couple of phone calls to get over. I try my hardest not to argue and curse him out, because I never want him to be able to use me as an excuse later to tell Riley he wasn’t there because I did something to stop their relationship. So I hate when I lose my cool with him, even though he makes it hard not to.

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.

    Block’s response that “he is not going to pursue Riley” are words spoken by someone who has confused Riley with a love interest, as opposed to his daughter. Riley has learned the hard way that Block is unsuitable father material and is making the adult choice to avoid allowing this person to damage her heart and soul because she can sense the danger.
