NeNe Leakes And Kandi Burruss Face Off At The RHOA Reunion Show

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?

Turn the page to see the bickering for yourself. Do you think NeNe is wrong for the comments she made about Kandi?

    Well, Kandi kept talking about food and eating, so how is that throwing shade? Also, I don’t know if Nene is jealous of Kandi or not. I do think, however, Kandi seems to want to be the only successful one. I think she feels like she’s worked hard for where she’s at and it seems to have fallen in Nene’s lap. That’s where I think Kandi becomes irritated. Also, I’ve noticed that Kandi can’t let stuff go. She needs to not worry about it and continue making her paper.

    NeNe is jealous of Kandi and always has been, Point Blank Period!

    Madame Noir is so messy. That wasn’t tense or confrontational. They weren’t even upset. They answered questions and each offered their input/opinion. It doesn’t look like they are in danger of beefing or going back to being frenemies or anything of the sort. They may never be close, but it seems they are just fine.

    • Toya

      You love it.

    Okay I have a question. Does it not look like Kandi may have received a Botox treatment? I hope not because she has great skin and I hear once you start Botox, to maintain it you have to continue. But her eyebrows are up higher to her forehead than usual.

  • YES gAWD

    It just seem to me like Nene trying to now act all high and mighty like shes so ABOVE these girls and they drama…but then she seems to forget that some of these girls have beef WITH HER because of the things shes done to them before her stardom and fame talk. Kandi is referring to something that changed her relationship with Nene before all Nene fake high and mighty mess and now Nene want people to just sweep all the dirt shes done out the door and treat her like this flawless star when THAT AINT THE CASE…NENE BEEN ON THIS SHOW FOR HOW MANY YEARS?? WE HAVE SEEN EVERY FACET OF THAT MESSY STAR….she can act as flawless as she want to, She havent been no saint to these ladies and she know it. All that snigglin “YALL SO CRAZY HUNNY” no Nene YOU ARE CRAZY!

    I love Nene and I love Kandi. But Nene needs to stop taking such offense when people fire back at her. You can’t keep it real to that level and not expect for people to be real with you. She did have a point though, Kandi was acting like she hadn’t eaten in 3 days. Kandi needs to admit that her and the other girls were dead wrong for showing up to Nene’s dinner party that late. There’s no reason for either of them to be carrying a grudge.

  • Keisha Samoht

    Yeah and when they were laqte to NeNe’s she was sayin ‘… Can we at least a doggy bag or sumthin???…’ Then was complaining have when Gregg gave them some fruit .. anyway im mad cause i feelin that Kim’s show wont be renewed so this is her opening to bring her wig toting warrior self back…. Thanks Nene…

    • Beejcee

      I hope you are not right about Kim. I really can’t stand her, so I guess I will have to watch Married to Medicine (LOL)

      • Keisha Samoht

        Dont act like u dont miss her smoker’s yell: Sweetie!!!

  • Beejcee

    Kandi is always talking about food or eating. On the finale when the cast members were outside with Porsha, Kandi was saying if we aren’t going back to the party we’re getting ready to go get something to eat!

  • Cynthia

    I can’t stand that BIG BLONDE BIRD!! Go back to season 2/episode 1 NeNe is talking about Kandi to Dwight before she even meets her. NeNe tried to downplay who Kandi was and her success. Kandi’s MONEY can RUNS CIRCLES around your little COOKIE JAR MONEY NeNe.
