Longtime Real Housewives of Atlanta viewers may remember that Kandi’s finace, A.J. Jewell, was killed outside of an Atlanta strip club in 2009 — a topic Kandi tearfully addressed on the show’s season 2 reunion.
While Kandi sympathizes with Taylor and her heartbreaking situation, she tells CNN’s Showbiz Tonight that she isn’t on board with Taylor’s choice to release a memoir detailing her struggles.
Kandi says, “I’m sure that there were problems there, and I sympathize with her, but, I mean, you know, there are two sides to every coin and I just don’t feel the need to speak on someone who is not here anymore. That is just me.”
Kandi also spoke about Taylor’s co-star, Kim Richards, and says she wasn't surprised by Kim’s substance abuse.
She continues, “I didn’t know it was a secret … but, you know, sometimes people have issues within themselves but they don’t want to admit it out loud — but everyone else can see it.”
