Will Kandi Burruss and Phaedra Parks Ever Become Friends Again? Kandi’s Answer Might Surprise You


The new season of the Real Housewives of Atlanta has kicked off and things are still awkward between former best friends Kandi Burruss and Phaedra Parks. The two friends had a falling out over the production of Phaedra’s workout DVD last season. So does Kandi see the two making amends anytime soon?

“Phaedra and I are cordial. I keep saying that every time somebody asks me that question,” Kandi told The Daily Dish. “We’re cordial. We have a lot of mutual friends so we keep it to, ‘Hey, how are you doing?’ At certain points throughout this year, we were able to laugh together a little bit, but then things would happen and we were like [no]. So, at this point we’re not really cool. We’re just cordial.”

When asked if she thinks they can ever become friends again, Kandi said, “We can’t. We can’t go back to that place. Ever.”

Kandi explained to viewers why they won’t see the pair in the place. “Too much has been said, like way too much,” she said. “I feel like I used to kind of hold back on some of the things that I would say because this will be the third season in a row that she and I were not on the same page. A lot of people will be like, ‘I miss your friendship.’ And I’m like, ‘Do y’all realize this is going on like three years things have been this way?'”

“So, two years ago when it all started, I didn’t think we had a problem. I didn’t know she was saying stuff about me and then I’m watching the show like, ‘What?'” she said. “And then, of course, there were other things that happened and I was just like, ‘OK, this is getting out of control.’ And now it’s to the point where I just feel like we’ve said way too much and too much has been done to even turn back at this point. I do not trust her. I’m sure she don’t trust me and we can just leave it at that. Keep it moving. This year I said I wasn’t holding back on anything, so, OK, you want to say stuff about me, so let’s talk about you right now.”

“I felt like she had something to do with a particular situation,” the singer/songwriter teased on Watch What Happens Live on Sunday.
