Kandi Burruss is apparently looking forward to seeing Nene Leakes at their virtual “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” reunion so the dynamic duo can hash out their most recent social media drama. The two castmates were in a heated debate on Wednesday, April 8 after Leakes made a comment that rubbed Burruss the wrong way.
Leakes ranted about a certain “RHOA” cast member in a now-deleted Instagram story. The Swagg boutique owner revealed she did not understand why one of her co-stars continues to receive spinoff shows with Bravo while she can’t land one of her own. The former “Xscape” singer assumed Leakes was calling her out and addressed the situation on her social media page.
Burruss has already filmed three spinoff shows: “The Kandi Factory,” “Kandi’s Ski Trip,” and “Kandi’s Wedding” and a show with her Xscape band members “Xscape Still Kickin’ It.” The reality star just scored an additional spinoff in 2020 titled “Old Lady Gang,” which centers around her soul food restaurant in Atlanta, Georgia.
Burruss shared the video of Leakes whining about why she hasn’t received her own show to her Instagram page on April 8. The “Glee” actress vented about her problems midway through the clip. “I think me not having my own show has been due to certain people not wanting me to have a show. I have gone to my production companies; I have gone to Bravo about different show ideas. Why only one person over here gets to do a show every season after our show, it’s weird. To me it looks really shady for one person season after season after season gets a show and none of these other girls gets to do anything,” Leakes said.
She concluded her rant by saying, “It feels like someone is afraid that they would be bigger than you are. A threat basically, which is so ridiculous and so thirsty of them. It makes no sense to me.”
Burruss responded to Leakes in a now-deleted Instagram post by saying, “This video won’t be up long but I wanted to address this. So @neneleakes said on her live with @tamarbraxton that I misunderstood what she said on her Youtube……Now I don’t know about ya’ll but on this video it sounded like a bunch of hating & blaming of a ‘certain person they keep giving a show to’ as the reason her show ideas aren’t happening. Am I trippin? Who is she talking about in this video then?”
Leakes may have put herself in a sticky situation because many “RHOA” fans claimed she was indeed throwing shade toward Burruss.
“Nene know damn well she was talking about Kandi. What power do kandi have.. you the HBIC remember,” one user wrote.
A second fan commented, “She was DEFINITELY talking about Kandi.”
Leakes fired back on Burruss’ social media post and implied that she was not talking about her in her rant. She suggested that if she were referring to Burruss, she would have said her name in the clip. The 52-year-old actress revealed that she has been offered many spinoff shows and even returned a million dollars to a production company. The OG Housewife wrapped up her conversation by letting Burruss know that she would see her at the reunion.
