Kandi Phaedra

Say it ain’t so! “RHOA” cast members Phaedra Parks and Kandi Burruss’ relationship is said to be strained because of Phaedra’s estranged husband, Apollo. On the premiere of “RHOA,” Kandi questioned Phaedra’s loyalty to Apollo when she found out that she didn’t attend his sentencing hearing. This may have been the beginning of any ill feelings.

In an interview with Bravo, Phaedra was asked if any of her fellow cast mates reached out to her during this difficult time in her relationship with Apollo and Phaedra neglected to mention Kandi as a supportive friend:

“NeNe and Porsha have been extremely supportive of me and very attentive throughout this entire ordeal, and for that I am extremely grateful. Unfortunately, some of the others decided to use my personal crisis as an opportunity to further their own interests and talk to the media to get press for themselves. The lack of compassion was, at times, shocking.”

But it’s Kandi’s admission of “taking Apollo’s side” that truly seals the closure of her friendship with Phaedra:

“It’s very hard. Phaedra is always assuming I’m siding with Apollo, which isn’t true. Todd and Apollo became pretty good friends, so I would say he takes Apollo’s side a lot. Todd and I have serious debates over their issues. Sometimes I get to the point where I’m like, ‘Listen Todd, we shouldn’t be arguing about their problems.’ It’s crazy really… At the end of the day Phaedra is my girl. I’m always going to be honest with her about what I think. Sometimes we have a difference of opinion, but it’s not because I’m taking anyone’s side against her. Never that! It always sucks when two people that you really like are going through something as crazy as this. I’ve always heard that when a married couple goes through a divorce the people close to them end up going through the divorce with them. I never understood what that meant before, but I do now.”
