Phaedra Parks: I Will Always Love Kandi


Phaedra Parks is opening up about the conversation she had with her former BFF Kandi Burruss on this week’s episode of the Real Housewives of Atlanta. In a new interview with Bravo, Parks explains why she was disappointed in Kandi and shares her thoughts on their talk.

Bravotv.com: What did you think of NeNe’s new ‘do?
Phaedra Parks: One never knows what to expect from NeNe! She’s got quite a selection of unique coifs and the guts to wear them. The day she visited me, I was focused much more on her support and friendship than her hair, but I’m all for her blow out.

Bravotv.com: Were you surprised Kandi got so emotional when she came to talk things out with you?
PP: I was not surprised when Kandi got so emotional. Kandi and I are very close friends, and I would like to think we are still close. She’s going through some problems with her marriage, had a bad business deal, and was in an emotional state of mind. Throughout this ordeal I’ve reached out to Kandi several times to no avail. Instead of Kandi being upset that I had commented to NeNe about our situation, I just wish she had realized that she hadn’t been very supportive of me when I needed her the most.

Bravotv.com: Did you feel like you and Kandi resolved your issues after you talk?
PP: I don’t think Kandi and I have any issues. I was just disappointed she wasn’t more present during the time I really needed her. Kandi is a good person and I will always love her.

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.

    I still think Kandi and Phaedra and ONLY Kandi and Phaedra need to go away for a long weekend together. A nice long weekend a a couple bottles of good wine.

    Everyone should sort out their issues that way instead of letting other people interfere, Cynthia in particular!!!

    • yes she did

      True that.

  • yes she did

    So happy to see a true friendship on this show…this is the only actual friendship among them all. I am glad they handled it. They just need to keep all of the other housewives out of their friendship at all costs. We know [they] love to ruin anything good.

    I distinctly remember this season Kandi went to Phaedra’s home to see how she was doing. Also Phaedra’s one on one camera comment about Kandis money missed the mark. Kandi had to tell people they were out of a job. That’s a huge heart heavy burden, not a Kandis got lots of money comment. Ps, when did Phaedra go to Kandis home to see her like Kandi did to Phaedra?
