At the beginning of this season of Real Housewives of Atlanta, when the ladies took the trip to Anguilla, many longtime RHOA fans were very happy to see that co-stars Kandi Burruss and NeNe Leakes had finally put an end to their feuding. It even seemed as if a genuine friendship was blossoming between the Georgia peaches. Unfortunately, this reunion was short-lived. Things began to go downhill after the airing of the episode where NeNe got upset with the ladies for showing up to her dinner party hours late. While watching the episode for the first time, NeNe began taking shots at her co-stars via her Twitter page. While she didn’t actually mention names in her Twitter rant, she did follow up in a Bravo TV blog post, where she went in on Kandi. The relationship pretty much went downhill from there. Bravo recently dropped a clip from the reunion show of Kandi and NeNe discussing their failing relationship, and let’s just say, it doesn’t look like the two will be making up anytime soon.
When Andy Cohen asked Kandi a viewer’s question about whether or not she “throws shade” at NeNe, Kandi responded:
“Sometimes, yeah, there’s shade thrown. But I feel like she always throws shade at me. So I don’t feel like it’s anything more than what she’s done to me.”
NeNe, however, insisted that she doesn’t throw shade, she simply speaks her mind.
“Well I really don’t think that 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.”
NeNe was then asked which of ladies she was referring to when she tweeted, “Guess The RHOA that’s always asking about food & don’t need nothing 2 eat? LOL. ” She boldly replied:
“Now we all know that’s Kandi. She was asking for food when I tweeted that.”
“See but that’s what I’m saying. It’s like okay, you can say that about me and yeah we can laugh about it. But if I say something about you NeNe, and it’s like ‘Ahh! she just…’ You know what I mean?” Kandi interjected, clearly annoyed with NeNe.
The platinum-haired “glamother” justified her comments by saying that she never hits Kandi “below the belt.”
“No, we can definitely laugh about it. I’m just saying, we just talked about it. You know, I feel like if you can dish it out, just be able to take it. And you know, as long as I’m not trying to cut you to the white meat and you know, hit you below the belt, then we cool.”
While Kandi insists that NeNe certainly has hit below the belt before, like the time she made reference to Kandi’s relationship with her deceased fiancé A.J.
“I think that you have done that before…One time when you were on the radio in the past, you said something about my relationship with A.J. and it was about whatever. And I felt like ‘Whoa, okay.’ That was not cool for you to say. So that’s when I felt like ‘You know what, I don’t mess with her like that.’ And that’s when you got a different me.”
From the looks of it, Kandi and NeNe won’t be resolving their issues anytime soon, especially if NeNe’s friend-turned-foe-turned-friend-again, Kim Zolciak has anything to do with it.
Is it just me or does it seem like the old NeNe is rising back up?
