Things got especially heated between Kandi Burruss and Marlo Hampton during the third and final instalment of The Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion, which aired on April 22, and when we spoke to Kandi several weeks ago at Bravo’s upfront presentation, she went into more detail about their epic argument.
Specifically, a show insider told us that Marlo attacked Kandi’s boyfriend and lifestyle in an attempt to create drama and prove to producers she has what it takes to be bumped up a full-time cast member.
However, according to Kandi, Marlo’s plan totally backfired!
Wetpaint Entertainment: We heard what happened between you and Marlo at the reunion. How are you feeling about her these days?
Kandi: I’m not feeling her at all — that’s no secret. I mean, for a minute there, the reunion almost turned into a different kind of show.
Do you think she was showing off for the producers?
Personally, yes. I think she was trying to get a job and stay on Housewives because right now, she’s NOT a housewife. But it doesn’t look like she accomplished anything because she’s still not a housewife, and I don’t think she ever will be.
On a happier note, congratulations on The Kandi Factory getting a series pickup! What’s your schedule going to be like taping two shows?
I’ve been told I’ll film the new season of Housewives first, then go straight into taping The Kandi Factory, so I’ll be taping all year long. It’s going to be a very busy year!
