Kandi Burruss Addresses the Lesbian Rumors

The speculation around Kandi Burruss' sex life reached an all-time high during The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 8 glamping trip. Marlo Hampton flat-out asked her about the rumor she's had relationships with women, which had originally been insinuated by Porsha Williams. The conversation around the topic quickly escalated — and now, Kandi is clarifying her side of the story to The Daily Dish. 

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta on Peacock and the Bravo App.

"I've said on Housewives before, I have said on Kandi Koated Nights before, yes I've had a girl experience. It's not a secret, but I'm very happily married with my husband and I am not a lesbian waiting to come out of the closet," Kandi told us, before sharing why she thinks Porsha started the gossip earlier this season.

"She was mad about something else that she thought I said on the show," Kandi recalled. "So I guess she shaded me about that and her shade was saying that I was quote unquote 'lesbian waiting to come out of the closet.' Now when I found out she said this, of course, I was looking at her like, "Oh no you didn't say that!' You know, 'cause I'm like, 'Girl, you like to hookup with girls, so why would you say that as if that were shade?'"

If you thought the rumor couldn't get any more salacious, Kandi faces allegations that she also had a "sex dungeon" on the next episode of RHOA (airing February 19). "She goes, 'You are lying. You're talking about when you and Todd tried to take me and Shamea to your sex dungeon.' And I'm like 'Girl, I know you didn't just lie like that. Why are you making stuff up?" Kandi said. "She tried to change the whole story then she said a whole bunch of other stuff that was some BS as well. That, in particular, it bothered me that she tried to turn the situation around when she was the aggressor in the situation."
