Kandi Burruss

Kandi dishes on NeNe and Kim's reunion and her conversation with Willis McGahee.

on Oct 6, 20100

 

Well we're back! Where do I start? Let me say first that I miss Lisa on the show. She didn't have a lot of drama, but her and Ed were fun to be around.

Anyway, enough of the sentimental stuff. I felt like I looked 20lbs heavier than I am. Can we say STARVATION DIET! No, just kidding, but it did make me want go on a diet watching this first episode. I thought the show was pretty funny for the most part. Kim and her counting, "1, 2,...1, 2,...1, 2,..." I'm like, really? What does counting do? I'm confused. Is that really suppose to mean anything without any action behind it? Whatever... 

Everytime I watch the show, I realize what my friends mean when they talk about my facial expressions. I had my own self laughing at the way I was looking sometimes. Kim called me out when I was looking at her wig, and I didn't even know I was doing it! 

Speaking of Kim. What's up with her and Nene and that fake "I'm so nervous to see you again" moment... 

So what did you think about Phaedra? She's so funny to me. I loved all her commentary. "Nene's not that um...lady like." Then Nene saying Phaedra's not fabulous enough to be at the party. Well I look forward to see what they have to say about each other as the season goes on.

I wouldnt say you are my favorite because i think that you stay telling people how to handle their business. A friend listens and offers advice when ASKED for it and should then give it in a diplomatic loving manner. It is true you are less dramatic than the rest but, it seems like you think you can tell people how to live their lives and it's annoying. ANd talking about Kim behind her back was low, considering she is supposed to be your friend...

Im a sooo not a reality tv show watcher but I must say real house wives ATL is it! I love u Kandi, u are strong and a single mother the epitamy of a black woman. Thru tragedy and pain and suffering you still hold your own, something not many woman can or will do, I feel like your the one of my home girl when watching the show lol, that suggests real to me. With all the drama that goes on I see you can hold your ground and not let it get the best of you real woman is what i would call that, any who I could go on forever just wanted to say lovvvvvve the show and much luv and success to you Kandi, your career is off to a gigantic start and I most definately will be a supporter.

I LOVE YOU KANDI!!! You are so real and down to earth. I know you have been thru a lot, and you showed that you are a very strong person and I respect that about you. You are my favorite one on the show, and me being a single mother, well that helps me get thru my problems. Keep up the good work, and I can't wait until the new album.

Hi Kandi, I must say that I relate to you in so many different ways. I am a 26 years old and I've been through more than you could imagine. My love had been murdered and taken away from me as well about six years ago. It was very hard for me but time heals and I am glad to see that you are trying to move on in your life now. You have a beautiful daughter and a great and successful future to look to with plenty of good looking men like the one you have now. I wish you the best!!!

Kandi, I am from Baltimore. Good luck with your relationship with Willis not matter what it is. You seem to be a down to earth person and it's really nobody's business who you date. Keep NeNe at arms length and Kim too. The judgments that go on in people's minds is dangerous. And some thing are better left unsaid. Love your image and you smile. Keep being you.

Kandi, You are the best of "all" the housewives and I know that's the case for many viewers. The expressive face and your laugh is a part of your charm. You make a lot of people feel as if they personally know you and you are a good friend. It made me cry when you helped Kim achieve her life dream. I thought it wasn't just the friendly relationship between Kim and Nene that seemed strange, everyone seemed to be doing an acting job. Sheree took an acting class, but she seemed to be acting when she talked to Nene and to her friend and hairdresser. It all sounded as if they are reading a script. When Nene talked to Kim; it also seemed like they were acting out a scripted conversation. It even seemed scripted when you were talking to Kim on the couch. You said you are changing the direction of your music. When I hear "It Gets Easier", I loved it - just beautiful! Phaedra may not be (according to Nene) fabulous, but she seems to be a smart and classy lady. I like her thiinking.

I think you are the sweetest one on this show.I mean really your to sweet for it. Why dont you take a step back from Kim she has just as much drama going as the rest. I mean really after last season she should be running when ever Nene enters a room lol.

Stay sweet and drama free

much love

My only thing is....kim will do what she wants when she wants...she's a grown woman & she doesn't have to answer to anyone, so all of those questions (maybe how they were back to back) were unnecessary. If she made up her mind to reveal whatever "secret" that's her right & she's the only person who will have to live with her decisions.

So glad you guys are back and please you didn't look big, you know television makes you look like 10 pds heavier. I like that you were keeping it real with Kim and asked her why she would talk to the press about that lesbian nonsense? Very funny. i'm going to miss Lisa & Ed too this year.

love you gurrrl! your facial expressions are apart of you, so don't try and change them....just let them be!

what i don't like on you (if you don't mind), is your hair styles. i like it when you wear your own hair, it is so beautiful. all that flipping up in the front is not that cute to me, but hey, that's my opinion. you put it out there, so i can comment on it.

you don't look fat AT ALL. your body looks great, so please stop it!!!

Kandi, I think you are fabulous!!! You know when to stir the pot and then back up and watch those castmates of yours rip each other apart! I love your style of clothing but not the hair. Anyway you are a good person and true to yourself and that is because you have made your own money from day one! Love you and want the best for you and your family. Take care.

Kandi, out of the entire cast on this show you are the most well balanced, put together person with such dignity, class, intelligence and I commend you for being true to you - without having to put up a front or a facade to be something you are not - as most of the others do!

Your'e real, your'e kind, compassionate, wise, intelligent and operate from the highest level of class, composure & wisdom!! They all should take lessons from you on how to present themselves with etiquette, eloquence & elegance my friend.

Kudos to you girl! Much Love & blessings to you!

Hi Kandi,

You and Lisa were the most grounded and successful & grounded of all the housewives. You do make a lot of faces lol... Donot get mixed up with that mess w/Kim and Nene (whom is so very jealous of your success)

Kandi, I loved you when you were in Xscape. You are the most classy, and elegant housewife on the show. Sheree tries to be, but its not natural, Ne Ne is a lost cause. You handled that situation perfectly (Ne Ne). You are such a cut above the rest. I wish you well in all your endeavors, especially your personal life. Your song, "I fly above" is my motto, and my ringtone. I just love the lyrics, because I have to fly above the haters. I can't dwell in negativity! Keep up the good work! I hope you remain on the show, you're the only reason I watch. I love your style, your swagger everything! your hair is on it. I want to emulate that hairstyle, but don't want to cut my hair short, been there done that! LOL

I must admit that you are my fav! You are correct, your facial expressions show exactly what you are thinking. I don't think you looked big I think your shape is very nice. I also think Kim looked crazy with the 1, 2...1,2...what next?

I don't think Dwight is causing drama only to get more air time. He wants to be a Housewife!

No sex for Kandi!!! I applaud your effort. Being in a no-sex relationship will help you see things more clearly. Sex can cloud one's judgment and make you think you're in love when really it is not that at all. I commend you for trying this because hey, been there done that with the having sex in relationship thing. Try something different. If he wants all of Kandi...then he needs to put a ring on it first anyway!! Just know that you have ONE supporter!!

Let me start off saying you seem to be the most down to earth one on the show since Lisa. Always loved your music. You mite wanna get a shank vest cuz I think your gonna have to watch your back from those females. A message from my sister, she said, "you took the words wright out of my mouth, I thought you were knocked up. Call Jennifer Hudson I know you got her number or tweet her ya'll could do a song together about losing weight and that could be your motivation.

Hi kandi, welcome back, your facial expressions have me cracking up. Nene could have pulled dwight to the side without the whole world knowing their personal matters. love the fact that you don't get caught up in the drama. And you stay true to yourself. Can't wait until next Monday.

Kandi I am a fan, I would love to buy your music. As for the show you are the ONLY one who keeps it real

I didn't see it that way at all. Kandi is real. And when someone tells her one thing and does the opposite then you wonder what actually is real. When you have a conversation with someone it should be a two-way...give and take. But it has to be the truth. Kandi was not grilling Kim....I personally don't trust Kim. I think Kim see Kandi as a tool...someone who can get her another record "sounding as if she can sing". Kim was getting upset because a "tool" isn't supposed to think or evaluate what you say.....
