Kandi Burruss breaks silence on feud with Phaedra Parks and reveals if they'll ever reconcile
Kandi Burruss weighs in on the future of her relationship with Phaedra Parks after claiming Parks went "too far."
Kandi Burruss made room in her heart for Porsha Williams but for Phaedra Parks, not quite. The “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star recently weighed in on her relationship with Parks and said she had no intentions of speaking to her again.
WHEN THINGS WENT TOO FAR
Burruss and Parks had a fallout during season 9 of “RHOA” when the latter spread rumors about her former friend. Parks told co-star Porsha Williams that Burruss planned to “drug her” and take her to the “sex dungeon.”
Following Parks’ accusations, Burruss wrote about it in her cast blog, expressing her disgust and disbelief at how low Parks would go.
"I was shocked, angry, disgusted... I could go on. Even with everything that had happened between me and Phaedra, I still didn't think Phaedra would go so low as to tell someone that I wanted to drug them.”
Burruss was especially upset over Parks’ lack of remorse.
"The sad thing was that she didn't even seem sorry for what she had done. I was thinking, 'Damn, was there a reason to hate me this much?'”
WHERE THEY STAND TODAY
Over a year later, Burruss isn’t ready to forgive and doesn’t think she ever will. During a sit down with Andy Cohen on “Watch What Happens Live,” the mother-of-two firmly shut down any possibility of reconciling with Parks.
“Absolutely not. That was too far, that was too much. I’ve never heard anything, no apologies, nothing. We don’t ever have to talk again.”
ON HER RELATIONSHIP WITH WILLIAMS
While Burruss won’t ever go soft on Parks, she was more forgiving towards Williams. She told TooFab in December that though she can never be friends with Williams again, she was willing to be pleasant enough to co-exist with her.
“I personally feel like we’ll never be friends again. I can be cordial with her because we’re in the same circle. I have to — to a certain extent — be cordial because I’m not gonna make my own self uncomfortable just because we’re both in the same place at the same time.”
However, Burruss maintains her relationship with Williams will never go further than that.
“But I don’t want to be friends. Once you show me who you are, I take notice and I’m cool on you.”
Williams apologized to Burruss prompting a reconciliation between them. Burruss confirmed this in July when she posted throwback clips of her show “Kandi Koated Nights” which included Williams. In her caption, she wrote,
“Here are some throwback clips of a few @kandikoatednights episodes that we did when our show was still online with @amberrose @tamiroman & @porsha4real (I guess it’s ok for me to post you since we’re cool again after this weekend…?).”
At least there’s one friendship that’s survived the drama. Parks may have to do a little more for Burruss to open her heart to her if she ever will.
