As NeNe Leakes and Phaedra Parks seemed to grow closer in recent years, NeNe and Kandi Burruss were not exactly on good terms. But NeNe's friendship with each of these ladies has completely changed, she revealed on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.
NeNe shared that she has not seen or spoken to Phaedra since last season's Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion. She felt like she received an icy reception from Phaedra and Porsha Williams when she surprised the group during their Jamaica trip as well. "I was surprised at their reaction to me. They didn't even talk to me hardly in Jamaica," NeNe told Andy Cohen, adding that she "caught them whispering" about her behind her back. "I'm cool with Phaedra. I feel like I must be the problem for them. When I show up, I'm a problem."
The RHOA alum was also not pleased that Porsha said she's tried to reach out to NeNe and she doesn't call her back. "That's a lie. Let me tell you something, I'm the girl that'll call you right back," she said in her defense. "So this girl ain't call me. How she gonna call me when she bashing me with her radio crew all the time?"
On the flip side, things between NeNe and Kandi seem to be better than ever. "Me and Kandi made a bet that we were gonna try to be cooler with each other, you know, just try to get to know each other a little bit more. We both have kept to that. She'll text me," NeNe shared. "Phaedra hasn't texted me. Porsha hasn't said a word."
It doesn't look like Phaedra has said anything about NeNe's comments, but Porsha is taking all of this talk about her on WWHL as a compliment.
NeNe also expressed that she knows where Kandi is coming from when it comes to the end of her friendship with Phaedra. "I'm OK with the friendship split. It's just the way that it's splitting is the problem. Well, I think that Kandi had been holding back for so long and keeping secrets," NeNe said on WWHL. "For me, — yes, I know them in a different way than the viewers do — for me, I got your back, and I'm loyal to you until you're not loyal to me. And you're not gonna just keep shooting at me and think I'm not gonna shoot at you. So I'm OK if Kandi wants to blow her head off every now and then. I'm fine with that."
Kandi appreciated the support. "I had to post this because @neneleakes just explained perfectly what I've felt. For those who wonder why I've reacted the way I have reacted this season. Im extremely loyal but for the last couple years I've kept my mouth closed while I was getting dragged on & off camera. So this year I was just done," Kandi captioned a clip of NeNe's WWHL comments on Instagram. "At the end of the day we should respect girl codes but that means when the friendship is done you don't say anything about each other. Not just I don't say anything about you while you blast the hell out of me all the time... Isn't it funny to hear Nene & I on the same page. #JesusFixedIt."
Wow. These two really have changed.
