Well, it looks like the infamous RHOA sex dungeon conversation has returned…somewhat.
In a recent interview with Hollywood Life, singer and entrepreneur Kandi Burruss revealed that she will indeed exit the show if her friend turned foe, Phaedra Parks, makes a return to Bravo’s Real Housewives of Atlanta.
“There’s only been like one year that I had to kind of like question if [the show] is really worth it,” Kandi said, evoking the memory of everything that went down between her, Phaedra Parks and Porsha Williams during season 9 of the Bravo franchise.
If you need a refresher, here’s what happened: Kandi was at odds with Phaedra and Porsha over a pretty detrimental rumor which claimed Kandi planned to drug Porsha during a night out in New York City with Kandi’s husband Todd Tucker. Rumors continued to escalate during a sit down between Kandi and Porsha when Porsha accused the latter of having a sex dungeon in her home.
The drama swelled even more as the three came to a heated confrontation during the season’s reunion finale when Porsha reveled that the source of the rumor was none other than Phaedra.
Kandi told the outlet that everything weighed heavy on her spirit and she was ready to walk away from it all.
“Obviously it was that year when the whole craziness with Phaedra happened, you know,” Kandi continued. “So that was the only year that I kind of questioned it, because I was like, okay, this is too much.”
Kandi explained that even with the negativity, she’s been able to enjoy success on the show which helps her promote her numerous business ventures and introduces her to new fans.
“I just think it’s kind of crazy when you don’t even realize you’re in a battle with a person to the point where they would make up stuff about you,” Kandi said. “I wouldn’t even ever known she was doing that had Porsha not told it at the reunion,” she said.
After the revelation, Phaedra was not invited to return back to the series. Porsha and Kandi have tried to remain amicable, though the issue still rears its ugly head every now and then.
Kandi’s position makes it clear that while both Porsha and Phaedra have apologized, some wounds may too deep to recover from.
