Kandi Burruss Reacts To LaTocha Scott-Bivens "Blaming" Her For Career Woes
The Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member had plenty to tweet about while watching a new episode of SWV x XSCAPE: Queens of R&B.
Kandi Burruss is finally "Understanding" what's really going on between her and LaTocha Scott-Bivens.
The XSCAPE singers have feuded for many years, creating a complex dynamic between the group, comprised of Kandi, LaTocha, Tamika Scott, and Tameka "Tiny" Harris. To make a long story short, Kandi felt that LaTocha was given preferential treatment by the group's manager: LaTocha's husband Rocky Biven, who was dating LaTocha at the time.
"I’m not saying that he didn’t try his best but he had never managed before and it’s clear to say he had favoritism in the girl," she said in the 2017 series XSCAPE: Still Kickin’ It.
As for LaTocha, she felt that Kandi was always jealous of her success — and that she might've had a role in preventing the release of her solo album.
But it seems Kandi was unaware of the latter issue — at least, until the Sunday, March 12 episode of Bravo's SWV & XSCAPE: The Queens of R&B. The second episode of the limited series saw LaTocha say in a confessional that she has questioned whether Kandi had a role in hampering her solo career.
"I know back in the day, in 1998, I said I wanted to do a solo project. I think everybody was happy for me, except for Kandi. She was just like, 'You’re not coming back,'" LaTocha said in SWV & XSCAPE: The Queens of R&B. "For some reason, my project got shelved and then within that same timeframe, Kandi got signed and her album came out. It was a little odd, the timing of it all."
Now that Kandi knows the truth about LaTocha's feelings, she's revealing her own opinion about what happened between them.
"God’s favor ain’t fair! How did my album have anything to do with her album not coming out?…. I was on Columbia records & she was on SosoDef. Please ask Jermaine why your album didn’t come out & stop blaming me," she tweeted.
Kandi also weighed in on the drama between LaTocha and her sister Tamika, who were involved in an explosive fight about money in the debut episode. (As a refresher: Tamika claimed that LaTocha stole money from her while she was pregnant with her daughter Armani. LaTocha denies the allegations.)
Kandi suggested that LaTocha was trying to deflect from the real problem at hand, tweeting, "She had a whole situation going on in the family but was really trying to make me the focus of the problem once again."

As one Twitter user pointed out, "Why are we talking about Kandi when Tocha and Tamika are the ones beefing?! Kandi didn’t even do anything!" to which Kandi replied, "Right!"
While Kandi is upset that LaTocha and Tamika are at odds, one Twitter user helped her find a silver lining: "The perks of #TheQueensOfRB is that Kandi's name is finally cleared as the 'problem child,' and Tamika gets to separate herself from her sister's toxic ways."
"I didn't think of it like that," Kandi replied.
Will this drama cause the group to breakup yet again? Or will they be able to overcome their differences in time to go on tour? Find out when new episodes of SWV & XSCAPE: The Queens of R&B premiere on Bravo Sundays at 9:30/8:30c. You can also stream episodes the following day on Peacock.
