The fallout from NeNe Leakes’s Pillow Talk party continues. In the first part of the epic Real Housewives of Atlanta brawl, we watched as the men duked it out, and in the February 9 conclusion, the women got in on the action. In particular, Kandi Burruss and Cynthia Bailey and Co. really got into it.
Kandi has maintained that she was provoked to lash out at Cynthia’s sister, Malorie, after she shoved her in the shoulder. The usually calm-and-collected lady even got so heated as to yell “I will f—ing drag you in this b—!” But Mal has a different story to tell.
“Not my character to EVER throw the first punch,” Mal tweeted during the episode, before clarifying, “I was pushed first. I HONESTLY was trying to break up fights that night.”
Things turned sour between Cynthia and Kandi when the topic of Kandi’s fiancé, Todd Tucker, came up. The R&B diva was upset that Cynthia had been talking to Natalie about Todd being an “opportunist” behind her back — a sore subject for Kandi, in light of her strained relationship with Mama Joyce over that very matter.
Now, while we can see why Kandi might get upset about someone laying their hands on her — you don’t mess with a girl from the A! — we also can’t blame Mal for trying to defend her sister in the mess. It’s a sticky situation, but it sounds like Kandi is now regretting some of her actions.
"Three people were pulling me back & I was going insane.... I so regret it now," she tweeted as the scene unfolded live on Bravo.
Who do you think was more at fault: Mal or Kandi? Tell us in the comments below.
