A loyal reader (E-VannaRootsAllEvil) requested this post about Kandi Burruss and Phaedra Parks‘ stale beef.
I’m baffled as to why anyone cares about scripted drama between reality TV cast members who draw paychecks from the same employee.
During the off-season these ladies barely interact with each other, as Burruss confirms below.
Anyway, here’s the post you asked for, courtesy of Michelle from StraightfromtheA.com.
Kandi Burruss explains that she and Phaedra Parks aren’t really friends:
“Basically, Phaedra and I haven’t been around each other one on one without anybody else around in over a year at that time, and that’s because we really didn’t mess with each other like that. But she did come to the hospital when I had the baby, but things where really not great. She reached out and said she wanted to come, so I was like ‘cool’, tryna be cordial, but then she said something else after that and I was like, ‘I don’t f*ck with her’. We really don’t fck with each other. So, we were trying to just be cordial because we have to be on the show together.”
Kandi Burrus explains why they sometimes go off script.
First of all, my mom is very happy and she’s not one to be controlled. She says what she wants to say. And when we are on a show, they are supposed to speak their mind. We aren’t told what to say. The person in the scene with you, they say what they want to say.
Typically we talk about the tough topics that are happening on the show. So if you’re wondering why she’s discussing people on the show, it’s because they want us to talk about what’s happening on the show, not that she actually cares.
PART 2: RHOA’s Apollo Nida and Fiancee Storyline
The same loyal reader (E-VannaRootsAllEvil) requested this post about incarcerated RHOA star Apollo Nida and his fiancée Sherien Almufti.
Blogger Fameolous already revealed that Bravo TV lent Almufti a Rolex watch, a leased Mercedes Benz truck, and a Chanel bag to film her part for the show.
Nida is serving 8 years in federal prison for white collar crimes.
Fameolous.com — We obtained a video that shows Todd Tucker and Peter Thomas escorting Nida Apollo’s fiance down to production to shoot her scenes. We’re told Bravo production flew out Apollo’s fiance Sherien Almufti two weeks ago to film. Bravo gave her a $60,000 Rolex watch, white Benz truck, Chanel bag and a $3500.00 jacket to film in. We’re also told she was not able to keep the expensive items and return them before leaving. We also learned that Todd Tucker knew about Nida’s fiance for awhile, but he will act like he has no clue about her when she’s brought on the show. Peter Thomas is said to acted hype when he found out about Sherien and was a little too friendly with her. Phaedra Parks is also aware that Nida has this woman for around for almost two years. Kandi Burruss didn’t take Sherien presence to well and treated her not so well according to close sources of the situation. Nida posted his fiance on his Instagram page back in 2014!
