With only a few days left before Kandi Burruss's wedding special airs on Sunday, June 1, BravoTV is delving a little deeper into the Real Housewives of Atlanta star's past. One very important person in Kandi's life, who was part of some Season 6 drama on the show, is her longtime friend, Carmon Cambrice. In a recent interview with The Dish, Kandi's bestie of nearly three decades talked about her friendship with Kandi.
"We both grew up without our fathers in our lives and that was a common bond that fused our friendship," Carmon revealed. "We drive each other crazy sometimes but we can't go a day without speaking to each other."
For those who don't know, Kandi actually ended up hiring her childhood pal — a single mother to a 13 year old — to be her personal assistant after she lost her job as an insurance agent in 2013.
"Kandi asked me to help her for a few weeks as she moved into her new home and renovated her office space. A 'few weeks' turned into a few months and now, two years later, I’m working as her assistant. I think it just works for us," Carmon explained.
The ladies' bond was nearly shaken this year when Mama Joyce accused Kandi's BFF of having an affair with Kandi's now-hubby, Todd Tucker, behind her back. Kandi and Carmon survived the scandal, but Carmon and Mama Joyce have yet to make amends.
"For 27 years she was like a mother to me," says Carmon, "and I know that it really is hard for Kandi that we can’t be in the same room together … At this point any hopes of reconciling our relationship is totally on Mama Joyce so when she decide she wants to talk I’m ready."
We'll get to know Carmon even better as we watch her help Kandi prep for her big day!
