NeNe Leakes called it during a chat with Bravo’s Andy Cohen. “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” stars Kandi Burruss and Porsha Williams are back on good terms again after the “Dish Nation” co-host helped spread a damning rumor about the singer.
After Burruss, Williams and RHOA co-stars Cynthia Bailey, Eva Marcille and Marlo Hampton went to Miami over the weekend in support of Leakes, the Xscape star began following Williams again on Instagram.
While Williams hasn’t followed back, Burruss confirmed the pair are back on good terms when she posted some throwback clips of her podcast “Kandi Koated Nights” ahead of the show being aired on Bravo for a new round of episodes.
“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…😂),” the mother of two dished in the caption.
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…😂) We’ve had some really great guest over the years. Thank you to every guest that has ever been on #KKN! Now we’re taking this epic show to tv! Tune in this Sunday night July 1st on @bravotv at 9pm (Power premiers at 8pm so stop getting in my comments saying we’re competing. Just make sure to tune in to @bravotv as soon as Power goes off! 😁) Less than a week! It’s been a dream of mine to see #KandiKoatedNights make it to tv. Dreams really do come true! 🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾
The progression comes after former RHOA ‘wife Phaedra Parks told Williams in season 9 that Burruss wanted to rape and drug Williams in her alleged sex dungeon. The rumor caused a rift to erupt between Williams and Burruss and led to Parks being kicked off the show.
RHOA fan account @therealhousewivesofatlanta recently cited a source that said Burruss, Williams and Hampton decided to “put their differences from last season aside to support NeNe while in Miami. NeNe has had a lot on her plate recently and the ladies all really wanted to be there for her at her comedy show Saturday night and the grand opening of her boutique on Sunday!”
Earlier this month, Leakes disclosed that her husband Gregg had been diagnosed with cancer. That came after the comedian had to cancel a series of her shows in May to be by her husband’s side during his weeks-long hospitalization.
Meanwhile, fans have been stunned and happy about Burruss and Williams getting cordial again.
“Is anyone else shoooook?”
“Get the f— outta here 🤦🏾♂️.”
“@kandi you always said you needed time…your natural spirit isn’t hatred and forgiveness comes with time and growth of both parties…”
“@kandi so happy to see you and Porsha come to a place of healing/redemption with one another. This made my heart glad…”
“So happy for you both working on friendship @kandi and @porsha4real. Congratulations @kandi”
But such a reunion shouldn’t be too surprising. When on “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen” in April, Leakes told an audience member she didn’t think the door was closed between Williams and Burruss.
“No, I don’t think the door is closed. I think the door is cracked,” Leakes said.
But Burruss had noted herself during a candle ceremony that she doesn’t “have to be vindictive about it because it’s not that deep for me… anymore.”
