‘RHOA’: Kandi Burruss Calls out Tamar Braxton for Being ‘Biased’ in Nene Leakes Feud
Kandi Burruss from The Real Housewives of Atlanta is in the middle of a feud with Nene Leakes. The peaches are at odds with each other and have been exchanging digs on social media. Tamar Braxton, a mutual friend of the Housewives, has said she wants to mediate to have both stars reconcile. However, The Masked Singer winner thinks Braxton might be a little biased.
Why are Nene Leakes and Kandi Burruss feuding?
The origin of the feud between Leakes and Burruss is unclear. Both ladies got along great during RHOA Season 12, in fact, Burruss was the only one she didn’t have been with at the start of the season. However, Burruss feels that their fallout began when she started getting closer to Kenya Moore.
“I’m the only one who wanted to film with her at the beginning of the season,” Burruss told ET. “Like, I was the one who was trying to get everyone back on the same page with her. So, I don’t know how she changed that into trying to make people believe that I have something against her. I honestly feel like it’s just because I’m friends with Kenya Moore.”
When Leakes started taking digs at Burruss, the latter was taken aback.
“During the season, I pretty much got along with everybody, I didn’t have any arguments but lately it just seems like Ms. Leakes and I have been bumping heads,” Burruss added. “And I really don’t know what her problem is, you know what I’m saying? Well, now I do because I have been petty.”
Leakes has continued her jabs at Burruss and even said she was boring and after the season 12 reunion she hardly remembers anything.
“I can’t really remember that much between Kandi and I,” Leakes told ET. “She’s so boring. So, I don’t remember a whole lot that happened between us. I know she said whatever she said, ‘I’m embedded in your head,’ but honey, you can never be embedded in my head. You got to be way more entertaining to be embedded into anything over here. I’m actually embedded in her head and her friends’ head, because I’m all that they talk about. So, I don’t remember it being that much.”
Tamar Braxton wants to intervene
Braxton, who is a friend to both Leakes and Burruss, recently told ET that she thinks she could bring them back together.
“I hate that they’re arguing. I hate that they’re fighting,” Braxton told the entertainment show. “I haven’t really even spoken to Kandi or Nene since the whole fallout happened, ‘cause I’m just so disappointed. I hate it so much, and I told Nene before that I really got a chance to get to know Kandi in the [Celebrity] Big Brother house and they have a lot of similarities and they should just spend some time with each other. They would probably really, really like each other. That’s what I think.”
Despite Braxton’s best intentions at helping out their friends, Burruss doesn’t think she is impartial in the feud.
“Man, I’m not listening to what Tamar is talking about,” Burruss also told the syndicated show. “I love Tamar, but sometimes I feel like Tamar is a little biased in her thoughts. I mean, maybe because she’s only really talked to Nene about the situation and I don’t really think she gets my point of view, because I don’t feel the need to even go and try to explain it. Much love to Tamar, but I’m not even gonna go back and forth about this Nene stuff. If Nene and I, if we reconcile, it’ll be in the next season, how ’bout that?”
The Real Housewives of Atlanta concludes season 12 on Sunday at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo.
