Kandi Burruss: I Almost Quit ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta’


USmagazine.com:
She nearly hit her breaking point. Kandi Burruss spoke exclusively with Us Weekly and explained why her Real Housewives of Atlanta costars Phaedra Parks and Porsha Williams made her consider walking away from the hit Bravo show.

The Grammy-winning songwriter, 41, caught up with Us on Friday, May 26, at NYC’s Hunt & Fish Club, where Marcus Damas, CEO of Fueled by Culture, presented her with the Fortune Insider Award.

“During season 9, I was feeling like I might want to leave because there was so much hate from fans online and I was having trouble because, how do you defend yourself from a lie?” Burruss said. “How do you defend yourself from something that never happened?”

The “Don’t Think I’m Not” singer is referring to the fourth and final part of RHOA’s season 9 reunion, in which Parks, 43, admitted to telling her bestie Williams, 35, that her ex-BFF Burruss and Burruss’ husband, Todd Tucker, had planned on drugging Williams and taking her home — even though it wasn’t true. For her part, Parks apologized to both Burruss and Williams during the reunion, acknowledging that she "shouldn't have repeated it."
