We would assume that it would be fun to watch yourself on reality TV. But for Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss, it can be tough, especially with all the drama and tension on the show. 

Kandi was asked by a Twitter follower on December 15 whether she ever watches episodes of the show, and whether it's painful to relive everything.

"Is this stuff difficult to revisit as it airs?" Kandi's fan wanted to know. "Do you even watch again?"

Indeed, Kandi acknowledges that it is tough to watch. "It's hard to watch sometimes...." Kandi responds.

We admire Kandi for being so open about the pain of having to watch the show. And Kandi should know that we love watching her, even if she doesn't always love seeing herself!

We can imagine that perhaps the most difficult scenes for Kandi might be the tension surrounded Mama Joyce and Kandi's fiance, Todd Tucker, as Joyce has made her disdain for Todd quite clear. Todd and Joyce are reportedly getting along better these days, so it's probably tough to remember how bad things got for them.

Are you surprised that it's so painful for Kandi to watch episodes of the show? And do you think scenes about her mom and Todd are the toughest ones for her to watch?
