Kandi Burruss On Her Friendship With Phaedra Parks

Kandi Burruss: Obviously the fans don’t… You guys don’t get to see anything, but what they show you on television. Theres a lot of stuff that happens, that you know, you’re not privy to. And then a lot of the girls, try to show you one thing on camera, but then they’re different off camera, okay. And I have been holding back as far as with Phaedra, I love Phaedra. But you know, over the years, when she would come at me and do different things and some things that happened off camera that I was like, I thought was really foul, I held back because I was thinking you know, as a friend, I’m not really supposed to go there. But, as a friend if we fall out, you’re not really supposed to dog me and keep doing stuff to taunt me either.

[The Real audience cheers and claps.]

Tamera Mowry-Housley: Wow.

Kandi: So this year, coming into this year, I said you know what, from now on everytime she say something to me crazy or everytime she does something to my husband or my family crazy, I’m just going to let her have it. And that’s just how it’s going to be.

Jeannie Mai: Boom!

Kandi: Don’t start nothin’ won’t be nothin’.

About The Real
THE REAL is a daily, one-hour Emmy® nominated talk show on Fox Television Stations and in national syndication (check local listings), with a rebroadcast on cable network BET. Led by bold, diverse and outspoken hosts – Adrienne Houghton, Loni Love, Jeannie Mai and Tamera Mowry-Housley — these women reflect the home audience and unapologetically say what women are actually thinking. Their unique perspectives are brought to life through their candid conversations about topics ranging from their own personal lives to the news of the day to beauty, fashion and relationships. Emmy® nominated for Outstanding Talk Show/Entertainment in its second season, THE REAL is unlike other talk shows, since each of the hosts are admittedly a “work in progress,” and fearlessly invites the viewers into their lives. Their fresh points of view, youthful energy and passion have turned the traditional talk show on its head. Produced by Telepictures Productions and distributed by Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution, The Real originates from Los Angeles. Rachel Miskowiec (Good Morning America, Katie, The Tyra Banks Show, Judge Hatchett, The Ricki Lake Show) is Executive Producer.
