Kandi Burruss knows a thing or two about conflicts on-air, but that doesn’t mean that she doesn’t have any regrets about her actions. “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star told “The Real Housewives of Potomac” star Gizelle Bryant about the moment she wishes wasn’t captured by Bravo cameras.
“I think when I was screaming across the room at Cynthia’s sister talkin’ ’bout ‘I will drag yo ass,’ I felt like that was a lot,” Burruss explains. “After they split us up and I went to the bathroom and I had to calm myself down … I just started crying to myself. Because I was like, ‘Why did I do that?'”
The moment happened during the sixth season of RHOA when Burruss was fired up at NeNe Leakes’ pajama party. She was upset over comments made by a guest alleging the singer’s then-fiancé Todd Tucker was an opportunist.
Then, Burruss really got heated at Cynthia Bailey’s sister Malorie pushed her.
“I’m a short girl You cannot come up in my face doin’ all this finger waving so you better back up,” Burruss shouted. “I will f—ing drag you in this!”
The star noted that her status as a Black woman means she has to be particularly careful about the way she’s perceived on-air.
“As an African-American woman you always have that pressure from our society that we’re supposed to represent our community in a certain way and I’m not supposed to have hood moments on TV. But unfortunately every year, every other season, I have to have a hood moment. I’m still at the end of the day I’m a mom, I’m a businesswoman and that doesn’t change. And at moments I get hood and it is what it is.”
For the record, Bryant is a fan of Burruss going off. She said, “I like hood Kandi.”
Fans also were supportive of Burruss’ moment of steaming mad irritation.
“That is why I like Kandi. She is multifaceted. Just because you have money and success doesn’t mean that you don’t have to get someone together and sometimes you can go a bit overboard.😩😂”
“I love hood Kandi 🤷🏾♀️😂😂 sometimes ya gotta let me know girl. 😂”
“@kandi when you said I will drag your ass. I felt every letter. I was like dang she got hood real quick.”
