Uh oh. Season 5 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta has just gotten started, but we’ve already learned two of our favorite stars — Kim Zolciak and Kandi Burruss — are already at odds in a big, big way. In fact, one show insider exclusively tells Wetpaint Entertainment the former close pals and song collaborators haven’t talked to each other in ages.
And it’s more than just busy schedules keeping them apart. Apparently, there’s a specific reason.
As viewers of the premiere will recall, in the first show of the season Kandi specifically mentioned that she and boyfriend Todd had plans for a baby. They even had a name picked out: Kash.
According to the insider, all of Kandi’s friends — Kim included — knew that was the name she and Todd planned to use. Cut to two months later when Kim gives birth to her second child with hubby Kroy Biermann … a son they named Kash, too!
“Let’s put it this way,” the insider tells Wetpaint Entertainment. “Kim naming her child Kash was not something Kandi had been expecting. When she found out … it caused problems.”
And even though Kim has stated her inspiration for the name was Jessica Alba’s husband, whose name is Cash, Kandi doesn’t seem to be buying it.
Notes the insider: “If she had plans all along to name the baby Kash, Kandi knew nothing about it.”
“Things are strained between them now, no doubt,” the insider concludes. “I don’t think they’ve spoken in a few months.”
Here’s hoping they work it out. Do you think they will?
