    Kingstonn.. they too good for that now. :nono: heffas got the solo itch and said to hell with them other stippers. Honestly though, I think they don’t want to be seen as “has beens”. They are doing something current and want to be seen as relevant now instead of just back then.

    I mean she went and did her solo thing.. not singing but, writing and doing behind the scenes stuff. Kind of how she does now with the kiddie group.

  • http://sandrarose.com Sandra Rose

    @ rozb She told that story many years ago. So did Jeffrey. :) I’ve always believed she married him because Michael Jackson didn’t want her. Remember she and Michael were supposed to be dating? I never believed it. There was zero sparks between them. :lol:

  • J2201987

    Wow! I’d love to go to that!

  • MsOnederful

    I hope Kandi puts her differences aside with Tameka Scott and join the line up…They were a great group! Tameka years ago went on NY Radio and said that Kandi used to slay J.D. on Miss Jones radio show. This is before the RHOA fame though…Morning Roses!

  • Twilight

    No Kandi with this reunion. possible 3 original members so far from what i am told. hell i need to update my blogger with news of Xscape news.*sigh* maybe today. @sandra you have to go in your picture album and grab some old throw back pictures that you have taken of these groups.

  • Yardgirl

    I hope they take the concert on the road!! :listen: If not I may have to do quick fly out to Atlanta!! :danban1:

  • pointhimout

    Will Kandi be there to sign my RHOA photo of her? And can she bring Todd just because? I like looking at him. He’s not a 10 or a 4; he’s just right.
