What Started Kandi Burruss & NeNe Leakes’ Feud?

Kandi Burruss

Throughout Season 5 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta it has been obvious to viewers that Kandi Burruss and NeNe Leakes have had a problem with each other. What viewers can’t seem to figure out is why? In this preview for the RHOA Reunion, we see Kandi and NeNe start to hash out their differences.

When a viewer asks Kandi if she agrees she throws shade at NeNe, Kandi answers, “Yes, sometimes there’s shade thrown, but I feel like she’s always thrown shade at me! So I don’t feel like it’s anything more than what she’s done to me.”

NeNe is quick to reply, saying, “I really don’t think I talk negative about you, Kandi. I think that I speak my opinion and you may take it as negativity, but it’s simply my opinion.”

Next, Andy goes into the blind tweets NeNe was sending out about her RHOA cast mates. When NeNe tweeted, “Guess the RHOA that’s always asking about food & don’t need nothing 2 eat? LOL.” NeNe tells Andy, “We all know that’s Kandi!”

NeNe tells Kandi, “If you can dish it out you need to be able to take it! And as long as I’m not trying to cut you to the white meat and hit you below the belt, then we cool.”

Kandi says, “I think you have hit me below the belt before. One time when you were on the radio you said some things about my relationship with AJ and whatever, and I felt like ‘whoa, ok, that was not cool for you to say.’ That’s when I felt like ‘ok, I don’t mess with her like that,’ and that’s when you got a different me!”

  1. NeNe as always never takes ownership of her behavior. Anyway, not sure what happens off camera but on the show this season, it seems NeNe tried to make things better between her and Kandi.

    1. I have to agree NeNe talks bad about everyone; and Cynthia acts like she is everyone’s friend. I have always thought NeNe was jealous of Kandi because she has more money than NeNe and Kandi do not act as if she is better than the next person. Although NeNe makes more money than any other house wife Kandi is still up there and is down to earth. Love ya Kandi I think you are a diamond in the ruff. This is why you will always have because you have never forgotten where you came from; some get a million dollars and they are rich purchasing things they know they should not buy; continue to be wise my sista 🙂

  2. Unless you are Cynitha NeNe is always going to have something bad to say about you. Kandi has beed thrown under the bus more times than a cat has lives, and Kandi is the only one that will tell it how it is and does not mine telling it to your face. Unlike Cynitha who acts like everyones friend and than runs back and tells the other people what was said, Kim is just a crazy preson all those wigs she wears must have cut off somthing to her brain, NeNe likes to talk about everyone but wants to be the queen bee, Kenya is just nuts, Pherada is to worried about money to see what is going on under her nose, and Porsha is young and needs to find her on self before she finds another man but do not depend on the RHOA for finding your sef.

  3. It’s simply a clash of personality: NeNe is a braying, boorish bully, while Kandi is not. There’s probably also some jealousy there, as Kandi is genuinely wealthy, successful and liked.

  4. Sorry, but the ladies aren’t exactly nice to Nene, either. THEY ALWAYS TALK ABOUT HER! NONE of them have ever been genuinely nice to Nene. She never has anything bad to say about Cynthia because that’s her friend. Kandi and Phaedra have thrown shade at Nene since they first came on the show. I like Kandi but she needs to take a seat an learn how to take it if she can dish it.

    1. NeNe has thrown alot of shade at Kandi; Nene’s mouth is what makes people upset; have you ever heard the saying it is not what you say it’s how you say it. Nene should be the mentor which she tried to be last season. I think her and Kandi could be good friends if Nene would show some respect towards Kandi and Kandi should do the same. Nene has experience in life and should want to share that with her sisters on the show.

  5. Nene has always been envious of Kandi! She talks about people hating on her us success but she does not wish people well on their endeavors! She hates on all the girls except her puppet Cynthia! She boils my blood with that horrible attitude! It’s stupid of Kim to actually thinks she’s genuine !

  6. It’s obvious NeNe has a problem with everyone and like I’ve read from a few comments – she can never own her own faults ! Kandi is straight forward – she won’t come for you unless you come for her! I feel Kandi respects every lady represented there.
