It appears Kandi Burruss and Tamar Braxton are finally in a good place after their feud played out on “Celebrity Big Brother.” Burruss recently sent an endearing birthday note to Braxton on her birthday, and it turns out the latter needed it.
Fans got to hear Burruss and Braxton’s different versions on why they don’t get along when “CBB” aired from January 21 to February 13, but both women seem to have put all that behind them.
Braxton turned 42 on March 17 and Burruss was one of those that sent her a sweet shout-out on social media.
Alongside a dolled-up portrait of Braxton, the “Real Housewives Of Atlanta” star wrote:
“Everybody join me & wish @tamarbraxton a Happy Birthday!!!!! We’ve come a long way & I’m thankful for it. I hope that you have an amazing day today Tae!”
Burruss’s heartfelt note came at the right time for Braxton who revealed that she wasn’t having such a good time on her birthday. The “Braxton Family Values” star posted a video of herself looking sad and asked: “U every [sic] had a birthday that u want to redo?”
Tiny Harris, Burruss’s “Xscape” teammate and Braxton’s friend, also added some cheer to the day with a throwback picture of the birthday girl, writing:
“Can’t let the day pass me by without wishing one of my closest, longest friends a Happy birthday!! Love u Tay @tamarbraxton hope you’re having the best day ever!!”
Burruss, 42, and Kandi, have not always been the best of friends despite knowing each other for 20 years and having several mutual friends like Tiny.
“Oh my God, like, I don’t know, we needed this! We really did.”
Both women gave different versions on the genesis of their strained relationship on “Celebrity Big Brother.”
While Braxton said Burruss just never really liked her, the “RHOA” star believed their “feud” had something to do with a 2017 Xscape tour where Braxton was performing and brought on artists who had said negative things about Burruss and the group.
Things became even more heated early on in the “Big Brother” house when Burruss tried to clear the air and seek an ally in Braxton. That attempt ended in an impasse, and Braxton ended up revealing she was going to vote Burruss off the show.
Braxton eventually emerged winner of “Celebrity Big Brother,” and Burruss opened up about how their relationship improved while in the house. “Oh my God, like, I don’t know, we needed this! We really did,” she said.
Braxton also addressed the issue in a post-win interview, saying the reconciliation happened because they both “wanted to make amends.”
