Believe it or not, but Kandi Burruss had some doubts that things would get firey when the crew gathered to film The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 8 reunion. But, as the day went on, those quickly subsided. "Going into this reunion, I thought it was going to be boring. I really did," she told us in the clip above. "I didn't think that Phaedra was going to deal with the issues. So I didn't really think there was going to be that much debate between she and I and Todd. And I also didn't think that Kim Fields was going to be aggressive. So I thought this reunion was going to be boring, initially. Until the day of and then I left there thinking, 'Wow this is going to be a great reunion.'"
Given just how much drama has gone down this season, we're hardly surprised to learn that the shade did hit the fan once the ladies got in the room together. So what were some of the biggest moments of the season, according to Kandi?
"OK, well I think one of the obvious things is the shocking moment of NeNe coming back, because we went into this season where everybody was saying she wasn't going to be here. And clearly, she's here," Kandi dished. "For me, it was a lot of stressful things going on with the Phaedra situation once again when she was saying the thing about [how] she felt I was hiding Apollo's stuff from her; that was shocking to me. Honestly, it was never a secret with us. I mean, I know I never picked up the phone and called, but Apollo never came to us as if he was hiding from her because they were still together at the time. I didn't think it was a problem, but OK."
And then, who could forget the moment that Cynthia and Porsha got heated during a group outing on Lake Lanier? "That was shocking because none of us thought that they were going to go to blows. We didn't think Cynthia," Kandi explained. "No? You really have to do something to take it to that level — which it was a reason for her kicking, but still it was shocking."
We can't wait to find out just how the women will deal with these topics when the RHOA reunion kicks off on Sunday at 8/7c. Check out a preview, below.
