Kandi Burruss didn’t need to watch “The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip” because she got an earful from pals Kenya Moore and Cynthia Bailey upon their return.
“I heard enough about it because I heard Kenya’s side and I heard Cynthia’s side, unfortunately,” Burruss, 46, revealed on Monday’s episode of the “Behind the Velvet Rope with David Yontef” podcast.
She added that she “did not want to be in the middle of that” because she “love[s] both of them.”
During the seven-episode mini-season, Moore and Bailey — who went into filming as close friends and co-stars — grew apart as the former began bonding with Housewives from other cities. Bailey then found herself at odds with a few of the ladies and thought Moore did little to have her back.
When she expressed her feelings of neglect, Moore, 51, was not as receptive or sympathetic as Bailey, 55, felt she should be.
By the end of the trip, Bailey had serious doubts about whether her relationship with Moore would ever be the same — and according to Burruss, things are still rocky between the two.
“I really hope that at some point that they can come back on the same page and rebuild a friendship, hopefully,” she told Yontef. “Right now, eh.”
“RHUGT” Season 1 debuted on Peacock in November 2021, at which time Moore told theJasmineBRAND, “There was a moment during the filming where [Bailey] just felt like she had gotten into it with some of the other ladies over a situation and I wasn’t stepping up. And I’m like, ‘No, when you watch it back, you will see that I stepped up plenty.’”
“I think we got over it, but then, you know, sometimes people don’t really get over things.”
“RHUGT” Season 2, whose cast has been dubbed the “Ex-Wives Club,” hits the NBCUniversal streaming service on June 23.
