Kandi answers your questions about being late to NeNe's dinner and the conflict with Kim over the name Kash.

When she said on the phone that she wanted us to turn around and not come, I was OK with that. I can’t remember whose bright idea it was to go over there anyway. We were rolling as a group, so if that’s what they wanted to do, then fine, but we all were tired and hungry (not just me, but I was the most vocal about it). We had a five hour flight that got us to LA smack in the middle of rush hour traffic. It took over two hours to get to the house NeNe rented for us. When we got to the house, there wasn’t anything to eat there. We still had to wait on Phaedra to get there before we left for NeNe’s house. NeNe waited with us a little while before she even went back home. She couldn’t have left before 8:30 for what was a 9:00 dinner, so she knew we would be late. Nonetheless there’s a major difference being an hour late and being three hours late.

I didn’t even change clothes, because I was ready to go. I have no idea what took so long, but it wasn’t me this time. I remember it took Phaedra a while to get there and that was the main reason for the wait, but other than that I can’t recall what took us so long to leave. By the time we did leave I was STARVING.  When I’m hungry I get moody, silly acting, and my patience is super short. When we got to her house and saw her waiting outside to go off on us, I was like really? Why are we standing here and begging this woman to let us in her house? This is stupid! Even though we were late, I did feel like she could’ve still let us come in. I would have let them in if it were me. When I was walking over and peeping in the window, I was being silly. My point was if I came all this way to see you, then I need to see something dammit! LOL!  But when I saw that some of the guests were still there, it pissed me off. At that point I felt like she was trying to show out on us in front of her LA friends. If it was over and everyone was gone, OK cool, but if people are still here, why can’t we come in? So I was done looking like a fool in her driveway, and I was ready to go find something to eat at that point.
