Things got real last night, February 5, at the opening of Love & Hip Hop stars Stevie J and Benzino’s new bar. TMZ reports that the opening, which was filmed for LHHATL, was marred by a massive brawl, and we fear that our girl Kandi Burruss may have been inadvertently caught in the drazy crossfire. Hasn’t The Real Housewives of Atlanta star seen enough intense fights in her lifetime?!
Per TMZ, last night’s showdown likely began when LHHA star (and Stevie J’s wife) Joseline Hernandez walked in with a girlfriend, who we’re guessing may have been Benzino’s new fianceé, Thi Thi. What happened next is a little fuzzy, but we know that Joseline’s “friend” — whomever she may be — instigated a fight that left several people bloodied and bruised.
As a cell phone video of the massacre shows, Karlie Redd (Benzino’s former flame) was knocked out, and someone threw a bottle at Mama Dee’s face. Not cool, guys!
So where does Kandi come in?
From what we can tell she was lucky enough to avoid this mess, but we do know that she was present earlier in the evening and even Instagrammed a photo of her and her friend Carmon enjoying themselves at Stevie J and Benzino’s new bar. The RHoA star hasn’t tweeted anything about the melee, so we hope that she made it out before the s— hit the fan, but we’ll be keeping an eye out for her in a few months when LHHATL returns to VH1 this May.
