“The Real Housewives of Atlanta” wrapped its season tonight, heading viewers into what looks to be a typically dramatic reunion series. Kandi Burruss appeared as Andy Cohen’s guest on “Watch What Happens Live,” dishing on all things Atlanta. Kandi was joined by recording artist, Brandi.
The show begins with Andy rambling on about the boob heavy upcoming reunion. The viewers are challenged to vote on the shadiest cast member of the Atlanta season, and Kandi thinks that folks may vote Claudia because of her frequent ‘exchanges’ with all kinds of people.
Next, some of the most uncomfortable and embarrassing Todd and Kandi moments are rewound, to give us all another opportunity to cringe. Kandi reassures us that things have picked up in the bedroom, and we relive Mama Joyce’s finale apology to Todd. Todd didn’t buy that the remorse was real, but Kandi catches us up, asserting that there has been a more genuine effort since then. Kandi comments that she is definitely the best secret keeper on the show, hands down.
Kandi spills that she did indeed tell Phaedra about the damaging text messages Apollo claimed that he discovered on Phaedra’s phone, prior to the tumultuous cast dinner, just had not told the other women of her knowledge, naively hoping to thwart drama.
We are treated to a reunion preview clip, where Nene and Kandi are squabbling, triggering Kim and Kyle flashbacks to kick in. A beautiful transsexual from Chicago calls in, and asks Kandi if Phaedra and Kenya’s lovey convo in the Philippines was for real, due to the fact that Phaedra is so fake that it triggers involuntary vomiting. Kandi expresses bug-eyed surprise, and vaguely responds that it kinda looked it, but uh, probably not. Kandi blames her misunderstood annoyance on Phaedra’s big blabbermouth, when asked why she appears to routinely toss shade Nene’s way.
“People don’t understand that Phaedra and I have been having conversations about everybody over the years, and out of all people I know what you really thought over the years, and THIS is who you are going to talk about me to?”
Andy asks Kandi how is her relationship with Phaedra right now. Kandi gives an update on the status of her relationship with Phaedra, including the last time they’ve spoken to each other.
Another viewer asks if Mama has stepped into a mother role for Todd, and Kandi explains that their relationship is improving, and that’s about the extent of it. Andy asks how the blending of Todd and Kandi’s children is progressing, and Kandi is able to wink, smile, and remind us that all will be revealed on their new show.
A caller questions Kandi about a rumor that Todd cheated with his “Hollywood Divas” star Golden Brooks, Kandi responds, “Not at all…that was totally professional…I don’t feel they had anything going on.”
The show wraps with the results of the poll, and NeNe is named the shadiest ‘Housewife’ by the viewers with 35% of the vote!
