Kandi Burruss and Phaedra Parks used to be best friends on Real Housewives of Atlanta. Recently, though, the former besties have suffered from a strained friendship and many wonder if they will ever get back on track. Now, fans are learning that Kandi and Phaedra still haven’t talked since their huge blowout argument during the RHOA Season 8 reunion show.
All About The Tea is spilling all the tea on Kandi and Phaedra’s broken friendship. It looks like Phaedra just can’t get over her estranged husband Apollo Nida’s friendship with Kandi’s husband Todd Tucker. The RHOA ladies have been able to squash their issues and become friends again; however, the process has come to a halt after has been revealed that Todd has stored a few of Apollo’s expensive toys in his garage in hopes that they would not be found and confiscated after his fraud conviction. Phaedra can’t seem to get over Kandi’s allegiance to her own husband after Todd hid Apollo’s ATV and other prized possessions for him.

Kandi Burruss opened up about her former friendship with Phaedra Parks at the recent OK! So Sexy party. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star confessed that she and Phaedra had’t had a conversation since the RHOA Season 8 reunion show. When asked about the status of their friendship, Kandi said, “We don’t really have a relationship.”
During an episode of Watch What Happens Live, Kandi was asked about the feds’ raid and whether she thought Phaedra Parks was the one who tipped them off or not. “Well see, the thing is, I really don’t know, ” Kandi replied. “Like that episode where we tried to resolve our differences, that aired that week. But she was also upset at Todd about something that he tweeted. A couple days later, this happened. I don’t know if it happened because of the TV show or because she was upset. The timing of it was so weird.”
Kandi was pretty upset with Phaedra after the feds raided her home, looking for Apollo’s hidden vehicles. She believed that it was Phaedra who tipped off the feds as to where Apollo Nida’s belongings might be. There was a lot of speculation about who might have turned Kandi and Todd in. Despite a discussion about having a garage full of Apollo’s stuff during a Season 8 episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kandi never denied that the timing of the search warrant was really suspicious, and that Phaedra Parks may have been responsible for the search.

Kandi didn’t just stop with her former RHOA bestie; she also dished on Cynthia Bailey during the party. Burruss told Ok! magazine that she wasn’t surprised when Cynthia and Peter Thomas split. Kandi claimed Cynthia had told her that she planned to leave Peter before she actually went through with it. She did admit that while she knew that Cynthia and Peter were splitting up, the separation really upset her.
“I hate that it happened because they were one of my favorite couples.”
It has been confirmed that Cynthia Bailey will be returning to Real Housewives of Atlanta as a full-time housewife even though she likely won’t be married to Peter Thomas anymore. Kandi Burruss is expected to join her on the Bravo hit. Season 9 of RHOA is reportedly already filming, as Phaedra Parks and Porsha Williams are said to be spending time in front of the cameras already.
With filming for Season 9 already underway, Kandi Burruss and Phaedra Parks will likely cross paths. When they do, fans are curious to find out if the former friends will hash out their differences and move forward, or if they will continue to fight and argue. Do you think there is hope for Kandi and Phaedra to become friends again? Or, does Todd Tucker’s friendship with Apollo Nida throw a permanent hamper on their ability to co-exist?
