Was Kandi Burruss Being "Messy" Talking About Porsha Williams' Fiancé Dennis McKinley? Cynthia Bailey Weighs In

Does Cynthia Bailey Think Kandi Burruss is Being Shady?

We can always count on The Real Housewives of Atlanta to spill the piping hot tea, and this season is no exception. Kandi Burruss has let it be known that she's heard some things about Porsha Williams' now-fiancé Dennis McKinley, and she hasn't been shy about sharing them, either, be it with Porsha herself or the rest of the RHOA crew.

However, Porsha hasn't exactly been open to receiving Kandi's intel about her man, causing a couple of tense moments between the ladies, although nothing like we've seen with them in the past. And though Kandi and Porsha have both made a commitment to move on from their past drama, given their history, it has still made some fans wonder about Kandi's true intentions in bringing up the gossip about Dennis.

One fan wondered exactly that when she called in to get Cynthia Bailey's thoughts on the situation during Sunday night's Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen (clip above). And the whole thing hits a little too close to home for the RHOA fashionista. "Well, on our show, we do tend to tell each other's business to the group if we hear anything. So Porsha's definitely not exclusive in getting news about her new bae," she explained. "It happened to me, it's happened to quite a few girls on the show."

Yes, significant others are always a hot topic of conversation in Hotlanta, and no one knows that better than Cynthia. The ladies have brought up rumors about her then-husband Peter Thomas in the past, as well as info about her boyfriend Will Jones last season of RHOA.

So does Cynthia think Kandi was really trying to look out for Porsha, or was she just being "messy" and mean," as the WWHL caller put it? "I think it's one of those things where once she puts it out there, obviously Porsha can just take the information and do what she wants to do with it," Cynthia said. "I don't think Kandi really cares one way or the other what happens in the end. I just think she wants her to know, like, 'This is what I'm hearing.'"

Kandi explained why she thought telling Porsha what she's heard about Dennis was the right thing to do when she appeared on WWHL earlier this month. "Here's the deal, I just feel like when she's early in a relationship, if I know something about it, most of the time, my friends, I'm gonna let them know. Now she and I, we weren't in the best of places, so I ran the information past some of the girls to see if I should even have that conversation with Porsha," she said. "Now she just didn't want to know from me. Mind you, last year when I told Cynthia stuff, Cynthia was fine with it."

Prior to Kandi's appearance on WWHL, Porsha shared that she didn't believe Kandi had the best intentions in bringing up what she's heard about Dennis. Porsha also got real about her feelings about Kandi these days. Check it all out, below.
