Kandi Burruss Tells How She Really Feels About Their Xscape Reunion
Since Xscape appeared on Watch What Happens Live last Sunday, fans everywhere have been giving them the side eye. Initially, the idea of a reunion seemed like a good idea, but now fans aren’t so sure they’ve made the right decision. If you watched the show last Sunday, you probably couldn’t overlook the awkwardness even if you tried. In fact, the Xscape’s appearance was so awkward, Tamika Scott decided to address the elephant in the room. In an effort to do damage control, Tamika made light of all the shade thrown on the show. But Kandi has a totally different perspective on the situation.
Not What She Signed Up For:
According to People magazine, Kandi is making it clear that this is not what she signed up for. During an interview with the publication, she set the record straight about the reunion. Kandi claims she was solely focused on stopping the production of an unauthorized biopic about the group and was interesting in working with the ladies to make sure their story was told the right way. “It wasn’t a planned reunion,” Kandi told People magazine earlier this week. “What happened was a network was going to do an unauthorized movie about us, and of course I’m not going to let somebody just take my legacy. So I called my group members and we were all able to have a conversation to start trying to get our story told the right way.”
Somewhere in the midst of all the drama surrounding the unauthorized movie, the other ladies decided they wanted to reunite. However, Kandi claims she was never onboard. In fact, she admits that there’s still tension between her, Tamika Scott, her sister LaTocha, and surprisingly, Tameka “Tiny” Harris. Kandi insists many of their problems center around their differences in opinions when it comes to business. “It’s always drama,” Kandi admitted. “We all think differently when it comes to handling business, or at least, the three of them think differently than me. It’s always them three against me, and I feel like I’m always made to be the villain. It’s really irritating and stressful.”
Doin’ It For The Fans:
But despite the drama with the ladies, Kandi did make an effort to participate for the fans. She admitted she hadn’t realized how much people really love Xscape. “The first three shows we did in the summer were all sold out, and now we’re about to go on tour and the tickets are selling like crazy,” she says. “I didn’t even realize how much people did love us as a group, which is a great thing. If nothing else, I am enjoying this time because of the fans.”
Although Kandi won’t be recording new music with the ladies, you can still catch her on their Bravo reality series Still Kickin It, which airs on Sundays at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
