A few months ago we reported that Bow Wow was talking slick about Kandi’s decision not to attend Jermaine Dupri’s So-So Def reunion. Though Kandi explained that she had a prior engagement, we knew that there had to be a bigger reason than that to miss out on such a huge moment. Well, in an interview with “Sway in the Morning,” she kept it real and explained why she wouldn’t reunite Xscape during that reunion or any time soon.

On why she missed the reunion

“I did have something else I had to do that weekend. I’m not trying  do a reunion. I mean, no offense, but I don’t wanna be faking and have to rehearse together. Tiny and I, we get along great. But, I haven’t really talked to the other ladies in a long time, like long time.”

Kandi explained that Jermaine Dupri really went hard in convincing her to come. And even though Kandi admitted that she has the utmost respect for JD, since he was the man who helped give her her big break, it wasn’t enough to convince her to comeback.

So by now you’re wondering who is the woman that Kandi has the issue with and why?

“Let me just say — because I shouldn’t have to bring up stuff…Our group broke up like 18 years ago. But what I’m pissed off about happened more recent. You get what I’m saying? In the past, Tocha and I used to bump heads, but she’s not really who I’m (really) bothered by. It was Tamika that really pissed me off. She said some things about me. Some of the things she put out there, were straight up lies that she had made up. I was so pissed off because me and her used to be really tight and I just felt like what just what she did–to try to make me look bad to people…Instead of just saying ‘Kandi doing well’, you gon’ make it seem like I screwed my way to the top. And then add more people to the list that never existed, on my list. I’m like ‘No chick, don’t do me like that’. I never do her like that. You know that I mean?”

And apparently Kandi is not the only one with ill feelings about the other girls.

“I talk to Tiny about it. Well, she had different reasons for not necessarily wanting to do it. But she was just like she didn’t really wanna do it either.”

My My.
Kandi did say that Tamika has called and apologized. But what she’s said to Kandi and what she’s said in the media are two different things.

After she did what she did, she called me, apologized. Since then, she’s called my mom and she was like ‘I wish I could make things right’. But recently she was on the radio, she still never admitted, she still be on her BS ‘I don’t know what’s wrong with her’. Really? You know what’s wrong with me.

Kandi did say though that if she and Tamika were able to make amends she’d be open to performing with her old group again.

    Kandi B is a genuine chick who is totally engaged with her fans. Ten minutes prior to Kandi Factory she gave me a shoutout on Twitter for my new book. How many celebs would do that? #star

    I like Kandi & loved Xscape back in the day. This is Kandi’s perogative. Can’t fault her for how she feels.

    JD did help Kandi get her big break, however he never does anything that he’s uncomfortable with. I remember him saying that he doesn’t visit people in prison. Him and the Da Brat were like siblings and he never went to see her. Then, he claimed that he doesn’t go to funerals. When his girlfriend’s (Janet Jackson) brother died, he didn’t go even though she needed him there. He’s selfish so he shouldn’t be surprised when people don’t go out of their way for him.
