After their explosive fight, Cynthia says the two "rational" ladies were able to move on.

on Feb 14 - The Dish0

No doubt there are a lot of strong-willed ladies on The Real Housewives of Atlanta. But when two of its most calm, cool, and collected women get in the center of a combative situation, that's when you know things just got real.

On Sunday's episode, the normally levelheaded Kandi Burruss blew up when confronted by Cynthia Bailey's husband Peter and sister Mallory. And when Mallory put her hands on her, Kandi was ready for a full-out fight. "I will drag you in this, bitch!" she yelled before having to be restrained by her fiancé Todd, and Gregg and NeNe Leakes.

Since then, Kandi has taken to Twitter to apologize for her behavior, saying, "Three people were pulling me back & I was going insane.... I so regret it now." Meanwhile, Cynthia also blogged an apology, confessing that she didn't realize at the time that Mallory pushed Kandi. 

So how is Kandi and Cynthia's friendship faring after the big blow-up? Luckily, the two RHOA stars seem to have made peace. Cynthia tells E!, "We're in a good place. [The fight] was a hurdle we had to get over. But at the end of the day, she's a rational person and I'm very rational and with time we were able to move past it."

She even goes on to say that she understands Kandi's explosive response. "We're all women, we're all emotional. We all have a snap button. It is what it is."

Do you think Kandi and Cynthia's friendship will recover? Tell us in the comments.

cynthia u started that mess by repeating what your friend said infront kenya. If you were a friend really concern you would have pull kandi aside and share your concerns and your husband is too much in the womens' business.

I really don't blame Kandi for exploding because if someone was in my face the way Cynthia was, I probably would have done the same thing. In actuality Kandi, watch the episode where Natalie and Chris were having drinks with Cynthia and Peter and you will see that the only ones who mentioned the word "opportunist" were Cynthia and Peter. Natalie DID NOT utter that word at all!! I feel really sorry for Kandi because she has a lot on her plate right now especially with this whole thing with her mother. I always respected my mom (RIP) but for someone to call your daughter's best friend and say the things that she said, I think Joyce is acting disgusting and low class!!! Sorry Kandi, I love you, I always have and I pray that things settle down in your life. I think you have to have a good heart-to-heart with your mom because she should not be involving herself in your personal life. You are a grown woman with a good head on your shoulders and she needs to leave you and Todd alone! I wish you all the best. God bless you, Todd and Riley.

I don't think they have a friendship to recover.  A true friend does not gossip behind your back, get up in your face and try to make you wrong instead owning up to shady behavior or make fun of your behavior when you have been pushed to the limit.  Friendship is a verb that is expressed through love, support and loyalty.

Never seen you act so ghetto on this show. You and Peter were (not to mention your sister) were all way out of line. Kandi is pretty good at keeping her cool, but you were in her face no doubt. I am definitely team Kandi and hope to be back on your team as well. I think Nene is a lost cause so don't let her bring you down in her own personal gutter.

Did anyone notice how Todd likes having Carmen around? Maybe Momma Joyce is not crazy. Their eye contact in the kitchen was very strange with each other. They double teamed Kandi. Are there 3 people in the relationship. She knows way too much. Last, why does Kandi keep begging him to stay, this is the second time she cried about him trying to leave. Is Georgia the only state she can find a man, remember there are at least 49 other states. She seems to be very insecure!!!!!

I think both of these ladies know that what happens in the heat of the action can sometimes not be putting our best face forward. When you have respect for each other it is always easy to hash things out. These two ladies do have respect for each other and both know the other vey well. I am glad they both took the higher ground instead of trying to bring the other down they chose to left each other up. Kudos to them both!!!!!

YES! They both are so reasonable, sincere and forgiving with everyone on the show. Their relationship with each has grown over the past seasons and they are respectful of each other

Glad to hear you are both in a good place. Remember friends deposit into your life and enemies/frenemies just deplete your life and leave you drained. Cynthia you have got to be a loyal friend to someone in your life.

Cynthia, since Kandi is "rational" and you are "very rational," now is the time for you to stop repeating and spreading what you've "heard," "been told," and "think" -- and pronouncing it as "the truth."  Doing that would eliminate most of "your" problems.

Remember what Nas says:  "Don't start none, won't be none."

Cynthia escalated the whole thing by getting in Kandi's face. Own it!

There's a new baseline, like all relationships following a traumatic and emotionally charged event.  In time healing will take place, but it takes commitment, respect, and discretion to work on the process.  I would reign-in how much I share going forward (Kandi).

Cynthia & kandi,

I hope that all is well between you 2 once again. Now can u please try and get your pal Nene on the same page regarding Kenya. She has no reason to feel threaten when there is room for all of you. Agree to disagree and move on.

Everybody has a breaking point & I can't blame Kandi one bit! Mel should have kept her paws to herself! Cynthia is level headed most of the time unless it has to do with Peter! No reason why her & Kandi can't move on. I liked seeing that side of Kandi! She won't let anyone walk on her! She can thank Mama Joyce for that! LOL

Kandi you are very generous and kind to Cynthia. Cynthia was the one who is responsible for the fighting that happened at NeNe's Pillow Talk Night. It is solely CYNTHIA'S fault. Cynthia openning up the Todd & Christopher Marriage issue was mean and recklace. Kandi, I would be very cautious of Cynthia. She isnt very bright and has a husband that has a very questionable backround. Peter spends her money like water and he didnt act very well at the Pillow Talk Night. Peter said he was trying to break things up but it sure didnt look that way. If Peter was he should have been pulling APLOLLO away??????????????? Also, we shouldnt  forget dumb Cynthia's sister- she has no busy touching Kenya. What the hell is Mal doing on the show. She's ugly and a trouble maker. I really have to fast foward them. Cynthia needs to go. She is truly physically  a beautiful women (I would say the prettiest on all the Bravo Shows)  with no plastic surgery. Her beauty is her calling card and she should stick with the beauty stuff. Watch your back Kandi -  AMEN

@third_sis50  i said the same thing.  Although, i dont like joyce she may be on to something.

@third_sis50  Say what, Carmen works for Kandi so of course she is around all the time. The eye contact was one of a question, Todd had told her to ask Kandi what had happened at the party. Your are reading far to much into this. She was crying because they were coming down on her mother and Kandi cannot handle that kind of conflict.
